Discover our wide range of BCAAsupplements designed with the finest ingredients available. BCAA are essentialsports supplements for bodybuilders and other athletes looking to improve theirperformance and build muscle fast.
BCAAs (Branched-Chain Amino Acids) are the 3 essential aminoacids: leucine , isoleucine and valine. They made up 35 to 40% of allessential amino acids present in whole body proteins and 14 to 18% of the aminoacids found in muscular tissue (*1).
BCAA supplements are very popularamong bodybuilders. Leucine seems to be the most relevant amino acid for increasingthe rate of muscle protein synthesis (*2) and decreasing the rate of muscleprotein degradation (*3). Research has consistently highlighted leucine's potentialin muscle mass maintenance (*4), (*5).
BCAAshave been extensively studied and there's a general consensus concerning itsbenefits for sports performance. BCAAs are known to prevent the loss of musclemass and strength (*6), reduce exercise-induced muscle soreness (*7), increasesports performance (*8) and muscle mass (*9).
Several scientific studies haveshown that BCAAs speed up the removal of metabolic waste as well as othermuscle damage indicators produced during workout (*10), (*11).
Creatine kinaseand lactate dehydrogenase are two enzymes produced during musclemetabolism. Their build-up will eventually generate muscle fatigue to anextent where you'll no longer be able to keep exercising. BCAAsupplementation helps eliminate metabolic waste and other by-products thereforespeeding up recovery (*12).
BCAAs are extremely important forbodybuilders as research shows they stimulate hormone production and decreasescortisol levels (*13) (a hormone that destroys muscle mass). BCAAs can alsohelp people who are struggling to lose weight as they are known to increaselipid oxidation during exercise (*14).
BCAAs may be taken both before and after workout. Taking 4 to 8 gof BCAAs before the workout will increase you plasma amino acid concentrationswhereas taking the same amount after your training will stop the breakdown ofmuscle tissue and trigger muscle protein synthesis (*15).
It may bebeneficial to add BCAAs to your post-workout protein shake.
BCAAs are fairly safe. After all, we're talking about amino acidsyou would normally find in meat, fish, eggs and other food sources.
