Nocco's BCAA RTD are a perfect supplementation for your workout.

The Store stocks top international brands, however we also feature smaller niche brands that offer very high quality products that we believe will be of benefit to our customers. Nocco is one of these brands. They are not very well known, but the ingredients used in their products are very good. They produce ready-to-drink (RTD) BCAA energy drinks, which are excellent for consumption before, during, or after a workout.
BCAA stands for Branched Chain Amino Acids. BCAAs are the building blocks of proteins, so they are excellent for overall health. BCAAs refer to three amino acids: Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. Leucine plays a vital role in muscle protein synthesis, whilst isoleucine induces glucose uptake into cells. The ratio of these three ingredients is important, but the optimum ratio is still under debate. Basically, it is argued that the higher the amount of Leucine, the better the BCAA supplement. BCAA supplementation in people with low dietary protein intake can promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth over time. BCAA supplements can also prevent fatigue in novice athletes.
Nocco’s BCAA RTD cans come in two colours: blue and green. The main differences between the two cans are:
The good thing about the blue cans are that they contain a higher ratio of leucine, which is what one should look out for when buying a BCAA supplement. Research indicates that the higher the amount of leucine, the better the BCAA supplement. Most BCAA supplements use a ratio of 2:1:1 or 4:1:1, but Nocco uses 8:1:1. Furthermore, the caffeine contained in the blue cans (180g) is very high and can provide you with the extra boost needed during a workout session.
Both cans are carbonated, but contain zero sugar. So, it’s like drinking coca-cola without all the empty calories!
Furthermore, if you prefer a drink with caffeine, the blue cans come in three flavours: peach, pear, and red berries. The green can comes in a delicious citrus or zesty elderflower flavour.
Nocco is still very much under the radar. It is a relatively new product that has not done a lot of marketing within Hong Kong's fitness community. However, their BCAA RTD is absolutely amazing, containing a very good range of amino acids. If you are someone that works out for 90 minutes or more, this BCAA supplement will help prevent your body burning BCAA from your muscles. Instead, it will help you build more muscle, since your body will burn the BCAA from the drink, and you will lose more fat. Nocco’s BCAA is convenient, refrigerated and ready to go at The Store.
