Benefits of Lean
Helps preserve lean muscle mass.
Helps decrease appetite, increase metabolism, and decrease the breakdwon of muscle protein.
Helps control sugar cravings.
The most popular use of Lean is to preserve and increase muscle growth. Stimulating muscle protein synthesis, preserving the body's storage of glycogen are the hallmarks of BCAA's. By regulating the two functions above, they are effectively preventing muscles from breaking down due to excess activity or overload. They comprise about one third of all the muscle protein in your body, making they the building blocks of protein.
In the very specific sesnse, BCAA are the measuring stick for the brain to determine whether or not there are sufficent levels of amino acids in your blood stream. This signals that our brains keeps its eye on, is a critical part of the body's need for food, feelings of hunger, and regulation of energy. If the signal to the brain says we are in balance ,then no additional demand for "fuel", or food, is needed.
Lean is a great way to suppress your sugar cravings. Within our our biome, there are particular bacteria strains that cause cravings for sugar. L-Glutamine will reduce that type of bacteria, thus reducing the craving for sugar. Additionally, l-glutamine is supportive in the healing of a leaky gut, which creates addtional demand for energy by the body.
