Top Secret Nutrition BCAA Hyperblend

Top Secret Nutrition:BCAA Hyperblend

Anabolic Branched Chain Formula!*

Supports Muscle Recovery & Enhanced Muscle Protein Synthesis!*





Top Secret Nutrition's BCAA HYPERBLEND™ combines the power of branched-chain amino acids with ingredients designed to promote anabolic activity and enhance absorption to create the future of BCAA supplementation.*

Why do people take BCAA’s? – One reason, and one reason only to stimulate and support protein synthesis. So why take plain branched chain amino acids when you can take an enhanced BCAA Hyperblend?

Of the 20 amino acids that help build protein, nine of these cannot be synthesized in the human body. These nine compounds are referred to as essential amino acids because they must be consumed through food or supplements. Three of these essential amino acids - leucine, isoleucine, and valine - are branched-chain amino acids, or BCAAs. Unlike the other amino acids, BCAAs are metabolized in muscle rather than in the liver, which means that they play a critical role in muscle development because they reach muscle tissue faster.*

The chemical structure of BCAAs is what makes them so unique. As the name indicates, they have branched carbon chains; it is these side chains that make it easier for the enzymes in your muscle cells to convert BCAAs into energy during exertion. The more BCAAs you have in your muscles, the slower your muscle cells break down muscle fiber. The anabolic stimulus from your training remains the same, but you experience less muscle breakdown, so you can build up more muscle mass.*

BCAAs, which make up about 40% of the free essential amino acids in blood plasma, are used as an energy source during exercise and play an important part in glyconeogenesis (a mechanism for reusing the glucose used for energy in muscle).1


The research on leucine and how it relates to muscle protein synthesis (MPS) in humans is debated. Some studies report increased MPS while others show suppressed muscle protein breakdown without increased protein synthesis during leucine infusion. One point on which the studies agree is that leucine is anti-catabolic.* The debate is centered on just how anabolic leucine is in humans. Further studies on this topic conducted by the researchers from the University of Texas Medical Branch (Galveston) have discovered that leucine appears to promote anabolic signaling, but not protein anabolism. In other words, leucine stimulates the signal to activate muscle protein synthesis but does not actually make it happen. Additionally, they found that an infusion of 1.8 grams is sufficient stimulate the anabolic signal.*2

Although leucine is definitely the MVP of the BCAA team, it should be combined with the other BCAAs valine and isoleucine for maximum effect.


Several research studies have confirmed that taking BCAAs, and in particular valine, before a workout lowers the amount of tryptophan that gets into the brain, thus lessening 5-HT levels and fatigue. Therefore, BCAA ingestion can help to prevent feeling fatigued during workouts, which will allow you to train harder and longer, encouraging greater muscle growth. BCAA supplementation can also help to enhance mood and brain function by reducing brain fatigue through this same mechanism.*3,4


A recent animal study conducted in Japan Suggests that isoleucine is the BCAA that activates the proteins UCP2 and UCP3, which help boost metabolism.* Animals in the isoleucine group had lower weight gain and almost 50% less white adipose tissue than the control group.*5


  • BCAA BLEND - A 3:1:1 ratio of leucine
    (clinically studied 1.8 grams) to isoleucine and valine.
  • ANABOLIC POWER BLEND - We have included ursolic acid and homobrassinolide to enhance the anabolic and muscle protein synthesis stimulating effect of BCAAs.*
  • ABSORPTION AND EFFECTIVENESS BLEND - Astravar™ and Bioperine help enhance the absorption of the other powerful ingredients.*

URSOLIC ACID (UA) - is a pentacyclic triterpenic acid with many body-reshaping attributes.* Ursolic acid is a very exciting ingredient that has the potential to make a serious impact in sports nutrition industry. Preliminary studies have had some astonishing results.

  • Protect muscle - Results from a study performed by scientists at the University of Iowa and published in Cell Metabolism suggested that ursolic acid reduced muscle atrophy and stimulated muscle hypertrophy.* It did this by enhancing skeletal muscle insulin/IGF-I signaling and inhibiting atrophy-associated skeletal muscle mRNA expression.*6
  • Increase fat loss - In an animal study to determine the effect of ursolic acid on abdominal fat and weight loss suggested that ursolic acid reduced abdominal fat accumulation.* It was also suggested that this was caused by the stimulation of lipolysis and the inhibition of digestive enzyme lipase.*7

HOMOBRASSINOLIDE - is a potent brassinosteroid found in the mustard plant. A recent set of animal studies suggest that homobrassinolide exhibits anabolic activity in skeletal muscle cells.*8 These findings suggest that oral application of homobrassinolide triggers selective anabolic response with minimal or no androgenic side effects including:

  • Supporting and promoting anabolic activity*
  • Supporting muscle hyperplasia and hypertrophy (number and size of muscle fibers)*
  • Supporting muscle repair*
  • Promoting overall physical performance*

The Rhodiola rosea, Astragin, and Bioperine combination is designed to improve the effectiveness of branched chain amino acid supplementation.*9,10,11

Absorption and Effectiveness Blend helps:

  • Improve absorption of performance supporting ingredients*
  • Delay onset of fatigue*
  • Enhance recovery*

VITAMIN B6 - acts as a coenzyme to many other enzymes that are involved with metabolism in the body. Vitamin B6 plays a key role in amino acid metabolism and is involved in the first step in the metabolism of BCAAs via its role in catalyzing the enzyme aminotransferase.*12

The benefits of taking Top Secret Nutrition's


Q. Do I have to take Astravar 2.0 with another supplement?
A. No, Astravar 2.0 is designed to be taken alone or stacked with any pre-workout supplement.

Q. What is the correct dosage and how many per day can I take?
A. Serving size is 1, but you can take 2 if you wish. We recommend not exceeding 4 in a day.
