What Is It: Amino Acids and BCAAs are recovery supplements to help rebuild muscle faster and reduce soreness. Defend BCAA by Grenade is a supplement heavily dosed with Leucine, the master BCAA. This will lead to more protein synthesis. Grenade is a hardcore supplement company and their formulas are as good as the best in the game. 

Ingredients Explained 

Micronized L-Leucine: 3400mg
L-leucine is the most important amino acid for increasing protein synthesis, it increases upper body power and muscular endurance and increases the strength response to weight training. Higher L-leucine ratios (for instance 2:1:1 BCAA ratio) yield a better muscle-building response post exercise, which is likely to contribute to superior recovery.* L-leucine enhances performance in repeated, intense bouts of exercise.

PepForm Leucine Peptides: 100mg
PepForm, high-yield leucine peptides, is a patent-pending technology designed to improve solubility and absorption. Free-form (single) amino acids like L-Leucine are not soluble and stable in liquid. PepForm amino acids are "peptide bound", meaning they are bonded together, allowing for significantly increased bioavailability and superior efficiency and absorption.*

Micronized L-Isoleucine: 1750mg
L-Isoleucine is one of the three branched chain amino acids and is one of the eight essential amino acids which must be provided in the diet for growth, maintenance and recovery of muscle tissue. As a BCAA, isoleucine is metabolized in the muscle and is used as fuel during exercise and therefore, providing additional isoleucine is a logical strategy to avoid excess muscle breakdown.*

Micronized L-Valine: 1750mg
L-Valine is one of the three branched chain amino acids and is one of the eight essential amino acids which must be provided in the diet for growth, maintenance and recovery of muscle tissue. As a BCAA, valine is metabolized in the muscle and is used as fuel during exercise and therefore, providing additional valine is a logical strategy to avoid excess muscle breakdown.*

Micronized L-Glutamine: 900mg
Glutamine may help support growth hormone levels.*

PepForm L-Glutamine Peptides: 100mg
PepForm, glutamine peptides, is a patent-pending technology designed to improve solubility and absorption. Free-form (single) amino acids like L-Glutamine are not soluble and stable in liquid. PepForm amino acids are "peptide bound", meaning they are bonded together, allowing for significantly increased bioavailability and superior efficiency and absorption.*

DEFEND HYDRATION PROFILE 
(850mg)

Dehydration of just 2% begins to reduce exercise performance!

Freeze Dried Coconut Water Powder: 500mg
Coconut water powder is high in potassium and contains sodium, chloride, and carbohydrate. In many cultures, coconut water is considered the ideal hydrating beverage.

ELECTROYTLE BLEND (Sodium Citrate 2H2O, Magnesium Citrate, Monopotassium Phosphate): 350mg
Sweating causes loss of sodium, potassium, magnesium & calcium. Besides water, sweat is composed of electrolytes - mainly sodium chloride but also a significant amount of potassium, with lesser amounts of calcium and magnesium.

Niacin (as Niacinamide): 5mg
Niacin may help support blood flow.

Magnesium (as Magnesium Citrate): 150mg
Magnesium consumed in the diet or via supplementation has been suggested to increase performance in humans.* Evidence suggests that citrate and other organic forms of magnesium are better absorbed than cheaper, inorganic forms.

Use: Mix 1 serving of Defend® (2 heaping scoops) into 8-16oz of ice cold water during (intra-workout), or after high-intensity exercise.

Alternatively, Defend® can be added to your water bottle using the funnel provided and consumed throughout the day.

The number of scoops and/or water levels can be adjusted to boost flavor and/or amino acid profile.
