Apollon Chainsaw BCAA Supplement Facts
Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)
BCAAs are a special subclass of essential amino acids (EAAs) noted for their ability to support the body’s ability to fuel skeletal muscles, combat muscle protein breakdown and support muscle protein synthesis.*
The leader of this triumvirate of amino acids is L-Leucine -- the anabolic “trigger” of muscle growth.*
Leucine is recognized as one of the most powerful stimulators of mTOR in the body, which helps “flip the switch” for muscle protein synthesis. Moreover, leucine also is known for its anti-catabolic properties due to it helping combat protein breakdown.*
Isoleucine, the “weaker” brother of Leucine, is also able to stimulate mTOR, but not to the same degree as leucine. Isoleucine also helps increase glucose uptake as well as glucose utilization during high-intensity exercise.*
The final member of the BCAA trifecta is valine, which is needed for energy conversion. Valine also enhances glycogen synthesis in skeletal muscle, which helps combat catabolism (protein breakdown).*
Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid that supports athletic performance, cell volumization, and hydration due to its properties as an organic osmolyte, which is a fancy way of saying taurine helps cells absorb water.*
Taurine also supports muscle fullness by drawing more fluid into muscle cells.*
Research also indicates that taurine may:
reduce plasma levels of the muscle damage marker creatine kinase*
decrease muscle soreness, and *
increase strength levels following eccentric exercise *
This multifaceted amino acid is also known to possess antioxidant and cytoprotective properties as well as the formation of bile salts.*
Coconut Water Powder
Coconut water provides a natural source of electrolytes (including potassium and magnesium) that helps replenish depleted mineral stores in the body, maintaining proper fluid balance and resisting the dehydrating effects of intense training.*
Who is Chainsaw BCAA for?
For anyone looking to aid in their muscle recovery.
How Do I Use This?
You can take this any time of day honestly. To get noticeable benefits from this, however, take intra-workout (during workout) or post-workout).
How Is This Different From The Others?
Most amino acid products just contain BCAAs. This contains BCAAs and hydration ingredients to keep you hydrated!

I really enjoy sipping these during my workout, pina colada is my favorite.
It’s not the greatest flavor I’ve tried but I would give it a solid 7.5/10
Pretty good BCAA, taste is ok (Pina colada) but I could taste the coconut water extract (it is different from the coconut flavor in Pina colada, if you've ever drank actual coconut water you know what I'm talking about).
This stuff was great, it’s more concentrated than the average BCAA so it last longer for the price, flavor is better than most others too.
