Discover our wide range of BCAA
supplements designed with the finest ingredients available. BCAA are essential
sports supplements for bodybuilders and other athletes looking to improve their
performance and build muscle fast.
BCAAs (Branched-Chain Amino Acids) are the 3 essential amino
acids: leucine , isoleucine and valine. They made up 35 to 40% of all
essential amino acids present in whole body proteins and 14 to 18% of the amino
acids found in muscular tissue (*1).
BCAA supplements are very popular
among bodybuilders. Leucine seems to be the most relevant amino acid for increasing
the rate of muscle protein synthesis (*2) and decreasing the rate of muscle
protein degradation (*3). Research has consistently highlighted leucine's potential
in muscle mass maintenance (*4), (*5).
have been extensively studied and there's a general consensus concerning its
benefits for sports performance. BCAAs are known to prevent the loss of muscle
mass and strength (*6), reduce exercise-induced muscle soreness (*7), increase
sports performance (*8) and muscle mass (*9).
Several scientific studies have
shown that BCAAs speed up the removal of metabolic waste as well as other
muscle damage indicators produced during workout (*10), (*11).
and lactate dehydrogenase are two enzymes produced during muscle
metabolism. Their build-up will eventually generate muscle fatigue to an
extent where you'll no longer be able to keep exercising. BCAA
supplementation helps eliminate metabolic waste and other by-products therefore
speeding up recovery (*12).
BCAAs are extremely important for
bodybuilders as research shows they stimulate hormone production and decreases
cortisol levels (*13) (a hormone that destroys muscle mass). BCAAs can also
help people who are struggling to lose weight as they are known to increase
lipid oxidation during exercise (*14).
BCAAs may be taken both before and after workout. Taking 4 to 8 g
of BCAAs before the workout will increase you plasma amino acid concentrations
whereas taking the same amount after your training will stop the breakdown of
muscle tissue and trigger muscle protein synthesis (*15).
It may be
beneficial to add BCAAs to your post-workout protein shake.
BCAAs are fairly safe. After all, we're talking about amino acids
you would normally find in meat, fish, eggs and other food sources.
