CONSISTS OF 35% BRANCHED CHAINED AMINO ACIDS
or Branched-Chain Amino Acids are essential nutrients that the
body obtains from proteins found in food. The BCAAs are leucine,
isoleucine and valine. These three essential BCAAs are
amino acids that the body cannot synthesize on its own and therefore must get
through dietary sources. Even though there are about 20 amino acids that the
muscles use for growth, the BCAAs comprise roughly a third of the aminos within
muscle tissue. So if muscle growth is your goal, BCAAs are a must. These aminos
also speed up muscle recovery.
make a great energy source for working muscles because of
their unique metabolism. This can have a positive impact on performance.
Athletes use BCAAs to improve exercise performance and reduce protein and
muscle breakdown during intense exercise.
are not only used as energy source, but they also increase fat
oxidation in glycogen. This allows athletes to train harder without fatigue
due to higher energy consumption. This goes for both high intensity training as
well as endurance training.
way that BCAAs can enhance performance is through their ability to spare
glycogen during training. Found as stored carbohydrates within muscle tissue
and the liver, glycogen is the favored fuel source for working muscles engaged
in high intensity exercise. This makes glycogen availability and preservation
vitally important if you wish to continue to train hard for longer periods of time.
