Raw Sport Maintain is a Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) and coconut water formula, designed to support muscle and hydration. Optimise muscle mass and decrease muscle soreness with Raw Sport Maintain pre/during exercise to enhance performance and drastically reduce fatigue. BCAAs have been scientifically proven to accelerate recovery, reduce muscle soreness and improve the use of fat for energy during exercise. The branched chain amino’s are essential amino acids that need to be obtained through diet. If we Metaphorically think of amino acids within muscle as a pool that is continually exhausted by physical excursion, it is beneficial to keep the pool full to the brim by feeding the body a constant supply of BCAA pre-intra-post work out to maintain muscle mass and speed recovery periods.
Raw sport Maintain Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are of the highest quality and vegan friendly. Derived from sunflower seeds, our 2:1:1 ratio compares to how BCAA are found in nature. Our unique blend of BCAA and coconut water powder help fuel the toughest workouts.

Put simply, Maintain is the best product of it’s kind on the sports market. It tastes great, contains ingredients that are ethically sourced and delivers amino’s in the perfect ratio the human body needs. Maintain is unique in comparison to many BCAA supplements.

We have selected a 2:1:1 ratio as foods from nature have this exact balance. It is vital not to create amino acid imbalances. Over supplementation of leucine, found in high quantities in many BCAAs, can cause high levels of ammonia to accumulate in the body, placing a strain on the liver and kidneys. High doses have also been found to cause hypoglycaemia and gastrointestinal side effects. The ethics behind the manufacture of BCAAs is important to raw sport and our customers. The majority of the BCAA products on the market are derived from duck feathers, GMO’s, animal hair or even human hair. We use an instantised 2:1:1 BCAA derived from vegan fermented sunflower. Instantised differ from standard BCAAs due to their water solubility, making them far more applicable in the sports beverage market. To give the amino acids their soluble quality, they undergo spray drying with lecithin, which acts as an emulsifier; allowing the BCAA to dissolve readily in water. We only use sunflower lecithin as an emulsifying agent, which has all the benefits of soy lecithin, without any of the allergenic properties.
