What is the Muscle Building Essentials Bundle?
Muscle Empires Muscle Building Essentials is the perfect stack for weightlifters of any caliber. Whether you're a beginner or a long time bodybuilder who believes in minimalism, this stack is sure to put you on the right path for visible and sustainable progress. This stack includes Muscle Empire's 100% Whey Protein Isolate in a flavor of your choice, along with BCAA 2:1:1 and Glutamine.
Potential Benefits may Include:
- Increased strength and muscle building.†
- Has been shown to burn fat when used while exercising.†

How Does the Muscle Building Essentials Bundle Work?
By combining all three of these critical muscle building ingredients, the Muscle Building Essentials Bundle ensures that your body receives the essential components for repairing and building muscle. The Whey Protein Isolate contains all essential amino acids which pair with the BCAA 2:1:1 to ensure that you're taking in the maximum amount of BCAA's to help build muscle while also limiting the amount of soreness caused by the build of lactic acid. Finally, L-Glutamine, an amino acid produced by the body, tops off the bundle with its muscle building support as well as its ability to restore energy to cells, making your workout that much more effective.
Whey Protein Isolate:
Whey Protein Isolate is a complete protein, meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids, similar to that of soy protein. Due to whey protein isolate containing all of the essential amino acids, this means that it includes BCAA's that allow for increased protein synthesis. Muscle Empire's Whey Protein Isolate is manufactured in the USA. Making the supplement includes using a cold microfiltration and ultrafiltration membrane technology. This process results in undenatured Whey protein. Whey protein supplementation, along with resistance exercise, can help improve muscle protein synthesis and promote the growth of lean tissue mass.
BCAA 2:1:1 (Branched Chain Amino Acids):
The three amino acids in BCAA (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) are the largest pool of essential amino acids in the body and represent a relatively high percentage level in muscle tissues, around 14-15%. This group of amino acids is highly involved in the regulation of muscle mass and found in the standard diet, through the ingestion of protein. The metabolic process used for BCAAs is different compared to other amino acids in the body. BCAAs are metabolized in the skeletal muscles, whereas other amino acids pass through the liver.
This metabolic process changes the effects of how these amino acids impact the body. As they metabolize, they turn into A-Keto acids via the enzyme branched-chain aminotransferase (BCAT). This allows these acids to be catabolized in the cell's mitochondria. The amino acid, Leucine, plays an essential role in muscle protein synthesis, Isoleucine induces glucose uptake to cells, and Valine helps muscle metabolism and tissue repair mechanisms.
Leucine is the most critical amino acid when it comes to the discussion of muscle synthesis; Leucine activates a complex called mTOR (mechanistic target of rapamycin), which increases muscle protein synthesis and, subsequently, muscle growth. 
Muscle Empire's BCAA is formulated to a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. It is instantized to dissolve faster and better in water. As a final note, a 2:1:1 is the most effective when it comes to taking BCAA's.
L-Glutamine Powder is one of 20 essential amino acids and is considered necessary for the maintenance and promotion of cell function. Functions most notably promoted by L-Glutamine naturally found in the body include protein synthesis, a precursor for muscle growth, and as a fuel source for the body's immune cells. As a fuel source, studies have shown during stress, the body's requirements for Glutamine may exceed an individual's ability to produce. Supplementation of L-Glutamine may be a good idea for many people with an intense exercise regimen as it helps to heal all tissues in the body. L-Glutamine is also responsible for maintaining the integrity of the intestinal wall and promoting a healthy digestive tract. L-Glutamine ensures the integrity of the intestinal walls by promoting the healthy growth of enterocytes, a type of cell that lines the intestines. In conjunction with supporting intestinal health, L-Glutamine also works to promote a healthy immune system.
