I think most of us have learned by now that losing weight, staying healthy and in good shape are not only quite challenging to achieve, but often work against each other, making it difficult to achieve a balance of all three, especially if you’re not one for working out at the gym each day. That’s why I created a BCAA Matrix Review (from Biotrust Nutrition) because it works so VERY well.
What is BCAA Matrix Review from Biotrust Nutrition (I got it So I Can Show YOU!)
I’ll give you an example:
When you try to diet and reduce your calorie intake, your body sees danger and tries to reserve fat for later use. It’s a survival instinct, just in case you’re stranded on a desert island or lost in the jungle, which I suspect you probably aren’t at the moment!
When you restrict calories your body starts to lose muscle, which in turn causes your metabolism to decrease, making it harder for you to lose fat; this robs you of the lean and toned appearance you desire and instead leaves you looking soft and frail, sometimes known as “skinny fat;” and also, muscle loss that causes the rapid rebound weight gain that occurs the minute you stop “dieting.”
After all, who wants to finally get rid of their unwanted fat only to gain it all back in just a few short weeks? Well, thanks to the clever guys at BioTrust, you no longer have to, and over the next few paragraphs I’ll share my experience and try to explain how it all works.
How Biotrust Nutrition’s BCAA Matrix Works?
First of all, if you have not yet done so – read about BCAA Matrix on their official website here. There are three unique protein “building blocks,” called Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA), which can help you preserve all your calorie-burning lean muscle as you lose fat. Now, as usual with all BioTrust products, this is based on a very specific, scientifically-backed ratio of BCAAs in this cutting-edge BCAA Matrix™ formula, but that’s just the beginning of what sets this truly revolutionary product apart from the competition.
While it’s true that Branch Chain Amino Acids have the ability to feed muscles and prevent catabolism (muscle loss) while dieting, not all BCAA products are created equal… not even close.
When BioTrust created BCAA Matrix™, they didn’t just want to create “another” amino acid product: they, as always, wanted to create the best amino acid product on the market today. And, based on my experience and the results which I will explain in this article, and the science behind BCAA Matrix™, I think you’ll agree that’s exactly what they did.
Hopefully, by the end of this short article, you’ll see very clearly why BioTrust BCAA Matrix™ just may be the most potent, most absorbable BCAA product on the market today, and it all starts with th use of three very distinct amino acid transport systems: the neutral system, the peptide system, and lipophilic system.
The underlying principle is based on the fact that most Branched Chain Amino Acid products are made up exclusively from free-form amino acids. Free-form amino acids, while valuable, all use the same neutral transport system. When consuming a significant amount of amino acids, the neutral transport system becomes overloaded, and the overall absorption rate of each amino is dramatically decreased.1
To overcome this, it is necessary to utilize di- and tri-peptide forms of each amino acid, as these forms utilize a different absorption pathway than free-form aminos. By combining both free-form BCAAs and peptide-bonded BCAAs, BCAA Matrix™ significantly increases absorption by reducing absorption competition and overload.2
When compared to similar products on the market, that part of the process already exceeds what they do, and that’s only part of what BCAA Matrix has to offer.
BCAA Marix includes a third form of amino acid—ethyl esters—which again uses a completely separate absorption pathway for enhanced deliverability.3
So, to summarize, BCAA Matrix includes:
- Three forms of BCAAs
- Three absorption pathways
- Unparalleled deliverability
At this point, you can probably see how BioTrust’s BCAA Matrix™ stands head and shoulders above other BCAA products on the market, but still, they wanted to make it even better.
The typical ratio of amino acids that appears in almost all BCAA products is a 2:1:1 blend of leucine, isoleucine, and valine. That said, research has shown that the most beneficial of the three BCAAs is leucine, so they put a double dose of this powerful amino acid in BCAA Matrix for a 4:1:1 blend.
Leucine’s muscle-sparing effects are greater than those of the other two BCAAs,4 however, leucine is also the most expensive amino acid to source, as are the di- and tri-peptide forms of each amino, and even more expensive are the ethyl ester forms. Knowing that, it’s probably no wonder you simply don’t see other brands utilizing all three forms of BCAAs and/or doubling the leucine content of their blends, despite the overwhelming research enumerating the benefits of doing so.
While competing BCAA products inefficiently overload a single transport system, BCAA Matrix takes advantage of three, distinct transport systems. This means unparalleled effectiveness, efficiency and deliverability of your BCAA. (In fact, you can use 1/3rd as much and get even better results compared to other brands.)
My BCAA Matrix Review & Vinal Verdict
Check out my BCAA Matrix Review Video Above, then read my final verdict below:
So, to summarize the advantages of the BioTrust BCAA Matrix product over similar (cheaper) products; BCAA Matrix contains TWICE as much Leucine as other BCAA supplements. Research has shown that Leucine’s muscle-sparing effects are the most prominent of the three BCAAs, and higher doses of Leucine are proven to specifically target belly fat.
I have been taking a minimum of four (4) BCAA Matrix capsules twice daily – one serving during, or immediately following, exercise, and another before bed. More can be taken as needed. You can take BCAA Matrix with any/all BioTrust supplements. As a matter of fact, their products are designed to work better together.
This product is caffeine- and stimulant-free and is made with natural ingredients. BCAA Matrix does not include any ingredients from gluten, wheat, soy, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, and peanuts. BCAA Matrix is non-GMO and it contains no sugar and no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives. What’s more, independent laboratory testing ensures potency and purity.
That’s it from me, as usual, a great product based on solid, proven scientific fact presented in an open and honest way with genuine benefits which I have witnessed with my own eyes (and body)!
1 Year Money Back Guarantee
It’s a solid product, I’ve been using it and am loving my results – BUT one one thing I LOVED even more was the confidence it gave me. BioTrust offers a full 1 YEAR Money Back Guarantee. Simply put, you buy the product, use it and don’t like it – you can your money back for a full 12 months!
