Make no mistake; all BCAA products are not created equal! Shockingly, it is not uncommon for companies to cut costs by acquiring their BCAAs from unthinkable sources like bird feathers and human hair. That’s right, bird feathers and human hair. Pretty disgusting. Fortunately, there is an alternative.
As always, you can count on Axis Labs® to provide you with only the highest quality nutrients. Our N’GAGE™ BCAA Complex is no exception. N’GAGE™ is manufactured with ultra premium AjiPure® Amino Acids. AjiPure® Amino Acids are strictly derived from botanical sources and are instantized for maximum bioavailability and absorption.

Introducing the new standard in BCAA supplementation
Axis Labs® N’GAGE™ is the Recovery/Anabolic/Anti-Catabolic Solution for optimal performance. N’GAGE™ is loaded with premium grade amino acids including the ever so important, Branch Chained Amino Acids (BCAAs) and Glutamine. Taken post-workout, N’GAGE™ rapidly propels reparative nutrients to exercise-damaged muscles. Taken mid-day, N’GAGE™ floods repairing tissues with a second dose of muscle-generating and energy-sustaining fuel.
BCAAs - Rediscovered
For years, the BCAAs have been hailed as having a unique capacity to drive performance, recovery and growth…and for good reason. Human muscle is comprised of a specific sequence and ratio of essential amino acids (EAAs)- a substantial portion of that ratio being the BCAAs – L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine.
Now, intense exercise and sport requires volumes of readily available fuel to power muscles. As the body’s “standard” energy reserves become depleted, it may begin converting amino acids into useable fuel. Here is where things get interesting. The BCAAs (and Glutamine) are some of the very first amino acids to be “stripped” from muscle to be used for energy.
Now, since such a large portion of muscle protein is comprised of the BCAAs, and because the BCAAs are the first to be “pulled” from muscle during exercise, it goes without saying that re-supplying damaged muscles with BCAAs post-exercise has profound, growth and performance-specific implications.
Instantized BCAAs (iBCAA)
At Axis Labs, we always take the science of performance supplementation to the next level. You see, we simply could have just formulated a standard BCAA product and launched it as something “new and exciting.” However, our integrity and pride for excellence continually guide our every move. As such, we tasked ourselves to develop a truly unique BCAA supplement.
So, we went back to the proverbial “drawing board” of BCAA research. What we found was “instantized” AjiPure® BCAAs. This was groundbreaking news. You see the BCAAs are, by nature, are rapidly assimilated into the body. However, through instantizing technology, BCAAs may be launched at hyper-physiological speeds to hungry muscles. Simply put, ultra-fast absorption of BCAAs offers the potential for them to drive performance, growth and recovery faster, and more efficiently than previously possible.
The 2:1:1 Factor
OK. By now you’ve gathered that BCAA supplementation is important. Furthermore, Axis Lab’s N’GAGE™ delivers ultra-premium (pharmaceutical-grade) BCAAs that are instantized for maximum absorption. You get it. It makes sense. But there is more to this story, much more. Remember our guiding principles of integrity and pride for excellence? Well, the truth of the matter is that we had enough technology to launch N’GAGE as it was. However, we just weren’t satisfied. Here’s why.
Although all three of the BCAAs are highly important, one of them stands apart as a growth-inducing juggernaut. That is L-Leucine. L-Leucine triggers an array of “downstream” metabolic pathways that directly, and indirectly support performance. For example, not only does L-Leucine support protein synthesis (that’s muscle growth), it also functions as a trigger for insulin production and release. Insulin, as you may well know, is a highly anabolic hormone that “delivers” nutrients to tissues – thus driving performance, growth and recovery.
In order to take full advantage of the power of L-Leucine, we formulated N’GAGE™ with a 2:1:1 ratio of L-Leucine to L-Isoleucine and L-Valine.
Because we were striving for a truly impactful Recovery/Anabolic/Anti-Catabolic amino acid complex, we knew that N’GAGE™ would not be complete without a healthy dose of Glutamine. Here’s why. Glutamine, by far, is the most abundant free amino acid in the body, and in muscle tissue. Furthermore, Glutamine is used in a broad range of physiological processes that are not necessarily “bodybuilding” related. In fact, much of naturally produced Glutamine may be quickly “ravaged” by the body before it even has a chance to go to work in muscles.
This makes Glutamine a “conditionally essential” amino acid for tissue repair. In other words, in times when your body can’t make enough of its own Glutamine to sustain all of its needs, it “becomes” essential. Therefore, supplemental Glutamine is incredibly beneficial. So, we obviously had an obligation to include a dose of Glutamine in our new formulation.
Of course, we didn’t just go with just “any old” Glutamine – that is not the Axis Labs way. We chose the very best source of Glutamine we could find. AjiPure® Glutamine, to be specific. AjiPure® Glutamine is a premium, pharmaceutical-grade product produced under stringent cGMP manufacturing regulations.
The Catalyst of Protein Synthesis
Between the synergy of instantized BCAAs and pharmaceutical – grade AnjiPure® Glutamine, N’GAGE had plenty of body-fueling power. But we still weren’t fully satisfied. We wanted to be certain, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the N’GAGE™ formulation was fully compliant with our strict standards of efficacy. In other words – it had to work even better than our initial expectations.
To ensure that the amino acids in N’GAGE™ had a fighting chance to be fully utilized for our intended purpose (Recovery/Anabolic/Anti-Catabolic) we still had one small “tweak” remaining in the formulation. Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine HCL) was the missing key that allowed us to crank the final adjustment. The reason is simple. Vitamin B6 works as a catalyst in the body to support complete utilization of amino acids – helping to drive protein synthesis.
As a dietary supplement, mix 1 scoop of NíGAGEô with 8-10 oz of water. Consume 1 serving within 30 minutes following your workout. NíGAGE can also be consumed as a mid-day anabolic boost.
WARNING: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Do not use if you have any allergies to soy, pregnant or nursing. Consult your physician before using this or any dietary supplement.
Shockingly, it is not uncommon for companies to cut costs by acquiring their BCAAs from unthinkable sources like bird feathers and human hair.Ē When I read that statement I almost puked. No wonder Iíve been wanting chicken so much lately!!! Well until I switched from my old BCAA supplement to NíGAGE. Now I have a product I can feel safe about using and know that Iím getting the best BCAA supplement available from a company I can trust to use only the highest quality ingredients in their product. Itís no secret BCAAs are a must for any serious bodybuilder or athlete but what most people donít realize is that anyone who is involved in ANY sport or athletic activity should be supplementing their diet with BCAAs. The science is there. Most people have just never read it. Besides, itís easy to support a company that supports the Wounded Warrior Project. As a military member that tells me that Axis Labs is an honest company with pride in their country and their military. I feel confident that same level of pride goes into every product they make and will always support a company that supports me.
