Below we take an in-depth look at the BCAA capsules manufactured by Boom Supplements to see how effective they are at aiding weight loss and increasing muscle mass gains.
Boom Supplements manufacture a BCAA product, which contains Branched Chain Amino Acids. These are thought to stimulate protein synthesis in the body (to create lean muscle mass), prevent fatigue following strenuous exercise, and to promote glucose consumption by the body. The amount of muscle mass a person has plays a large role in their base metabolic rate, as muscle uses more calories to maintain than fat. Having more muscle mass therefore increases the metabolism.
Boom Supplements have a variety of supplements; whilst many are targeted towards athletes and body-builders who want to increase their muscle mass and reduce fatigue, they also have a range of other products, including supplements to aid weight loss, increase energy levels, improve hair growth, to thicken a man’s beard, and supplements to boost testosterone levels.
Branch Chain amino acids are naturally found in food. Some good sources of these amino acids include: Whey, milk, and soy proteins, Beef, chicken, fish, and eggs, Baked beans and lima beans, Chickpeas, Lentils, Whole wheat, Brown rice, Almonds, Brazil nuts, and cashews and Pumpkin seeds.
Customers who want to contact the manufacturers can use the generic contact box found on the Boom Supplements official website. The company do not state where they are located, but as they sell products through Amazon’s UK store, it can be assumed that they are a UK based company.
Take 3 capsules in the morning, 3 capsules after exercise and 3 in the evening depending on the results you desire. DO NOT EXCEED RECOMMENDED DOSE.
The manufacturers of Boom Supplements BCAA Capsules claim that the product has the following benefits:
With our potent blend of ingredients, BCAA’s have been scientifically proven to increase protein synthesis, which helps build lean mass. BCAA’s not only help build lean mass but they also speed up muscle recovery. A full recovered muscle will help you push harder in the gym, and get better results! Our BCAA’s also help speed up your metabolism, meaning they can help give you a burst of energy that lasts!
The label on the Boom Supplements BCAA capsules bottle states that this product contains a 2:2:1 ration of three Branched chain amino acids, Leucine; Isoleucine; Valine. No ingredient quantities are provided on the official Boom Supplements website, or on the amazon sales page, but customers are instructed to take a large number of capsules per day to see maximum results.
Whilst the manufacturers of these BCAA capsules state that the product speeds up the metabolism; this can be an indirect effect of increased lean muscle mass, but the consumer needs to combine the consumption of these capsules with muscle building exercise in order to make any difference to their muscle mass, and therefore their metabolic rate.
The product also has a small effect upon glucose consumption and uptake, referring to how the body stores glucose in cells before using it for energy. Increasing glucose consumption is one of many ways to increase the metabolism and although it may not be the most effective, it will have a small impact upon weight loss. BCAA supplements should be considered an exercise and workout supplement, as it will enhance the results of muscle building exercises rather than working wonders on its own.
Side effects associated with BCAA are rare and are usually not serious. They can include nausea, pain and headaches. BCAA can affect blood sugar levels, and so diabetics should consult their doctor before taking this supplement.
Do not exceed the BCAA recommended dose. This supplement is not intended for pregnant or nursing mothers, children under the age of 18, and anybody with any known medical condition. Not suitable for anyone with ALS/ Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Before using any type of supplement please consult a doctor. Keep out of reach of children. Do not use if the safety seal is damaged or missing. Store in a cool, dry place.
There are some customer reviews of this BCAA supplement:
I’ve always had a good diet of good protein and veg and done quite a bit of training. About 4months ago I joined a gym were we lift heavy weights. I drink green smoothies, eat clean plenty of protein and good carbs only after training and take a lot of good quality fish oils. The day after training every muscle is sore and I feel extremely fatigued. Everyone at the gym takes amino acids before training but I personally thought that eating a good diet and plenty protein straight after training, eating good carbs at the right times should be enough. After 3/4 months I thought my body would get used to lifting weight and the fatigue would eventually ease, although I sleep great I was still full of aches and pains so thought I’d give amino acids ago. I took 3 tablets an hour before training and the next day I woke up brand new. Can’t believe it took me so long to try them out for myself. Highly recommended this product
great recovery product
The sales page also features some testimonial quotes from customers:
BCAA’s are no quick fix, but they defintiely give you an edge – try them and see for yourself
After using BCAA’s for 3 weeks I’ve noticed my recovery times have increased dramatically!
BCAA supplementation may help to increase the body’s protein synthesis, if taken in adequate doses. The doses used in Boom Supplements BCAA Capsules are not provided, and the required dose is incredibly high, with up to 9 capsules per day according to the recommended dosage.
Theoretically, this product will help consumers to increase their lean muscle mass, and may play a small role in boosting the body’s metabolic rate, both directly and indirectly. However, customers will notice no changes at all if they fail to exercise, especially if they fail to focus upon muscle-building exercises.
Boom Supplements BCAA capsules are available exclusively through amazon. The official Boom Supplement Website has a section labelled store, but this links back to their amazon store.
BCAA capsules used to be sold in bottle of 120 capsules, and the official website still advertises this. However, the only bottle size actually available on amazon is a bottle of 90 capsules. A single bottle costs £12.97 plus delivery. Amazon Prime customers can get free next day delivery on this product.
The product is also sold occasionally on eBay by third party sellers. Prices may vary.
Boom Supplements, who manufacture this BCAA capsule supplement, offer a 30 day money back guarantee.
Returns policies may vary from other retailers.
Boom Supplements BCAA Capsules are not strictly a weight loss supplement; they are going to be more beneficial to someone who is undertaking a muscle building exercise program than someone who is merely dieting or hoping to lose weight without changing any other aspect of their lifestyle. BCAA supplementation in adequate doses will lessen fatigue after workouts, aid with muscle growth, and may marginally boost glucose metabolism in the body. All of these traits add up to improved athletic performance and an increase in toning; by reducing fatigue the consumer can then exercise regularly without feeling exhausted. Ultimately though, the majority of the results felt would be due to the consumer’s hard work, which is merely supported by this supplement.
The doses used in Boom Supplements BCAA Capsules are not provided, and the required dose is incredibly high, with up to 9 capsules per day according to the recommended dosage. If following this dosage pattern, a single bottle would only last for 10 days, which means that the low price is actually much higher if the consumer is going to use BCAA capsules in the long term. The company do offer a money back guarantee on their products.
Because of the huge number of capsules recommended by the manufacturer, which can be costly and inconvenient, it may be that fans of Branched Chain Amino Acids seek out a powder supplement rather than a capsule form of BCAA; these products tend to come in a variety of flavours, and the doses can be regulated by the consumer without resorting to taking numerous huge capsules throughout the day. Overall, we do not recommend Boom Supplements BCAA capsules to our readers. We believe that there are both better diet pills and better sources of BCAA available.
