BCAA is a branched-chain amino acid containing the scientifically proven 2:1:1 ,4:1:1 or 8:1:1 ratio of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine.
Branch-Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) is a branched-chain amino acid containing the scientifically proven 2:1:1,4:1:1 or 8:1:1 ratio of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine. “Branched-chain” refers to the structure which has a ‘branch’ off the main trunk of the molecule. The combination of these three essential amino acids makes up approximately one-third of muscle protein. BCAA is proven to build muscle, maintain lean mass when in a caloric deficit, improve endurance and boost recovery.
BCAAs can also help enhance muscle protein recovery after your workout, especially when you consume them with carbs. Emerging research suggests that leucine is the star player of BCAAs when it comes to regulating genetic signaling pathways involved in muscle protein synthesis.
BCAAs may help:
Bring on muscle growth
Ease muscle soreness
Feel less exercise fatigue
Prevent muscle wasting
Boost your appetite if you’re malnourished or have cancer
Ease symptoms of tardive dyskinesia
Ease symptoms of hepatic encephalopathy due to cirrhosis
Protect people with cirrhosis from getting liver cancer
Treat certain brain disorders
Improve mental function in people with phenylketonuria
