Details

BCAAs are the most popular amino acid supplement, with good reason. The 3 branched chain aminos - Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine - comprise 35% of muscle tissue. BCAAs (particularly Leucine) are heavily metabolised for energy during intense training, and need to be replaced to prevent muscle loss. Of the eight essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the body, the three branched-chain aminos Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are of key importance. During and after Isotonic Exercise (i.e. weight-training), BCAA's are catabolised to form the amino acid Alanine within the muscles.

They are also crucial to muscle growth and recovery, acting as modulators of protein synthesis. Athletes in all sports are now using BCAAs before, during, and after training to reduce muscle breakdown, and to speed recovery. Some bodybuilders and other athletes on a high protein diet also add BCAAs to protein meals, to improve protein quality, thereby increasing protein synthesis and muscle growth.

Supplemental BCAA's may help to reduce the body's need to catabolise endogenous BCAA's by providing an alternate source for the body to convert to Alanine. By preventing the catabolism of BCAA's from the muscle cells, muscle recovery from exercise is accelerated, and recovery time is reduced.
