Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) increase both the rate of protein synthesis and the capacity of your cells for protein synthesis (anabolism), while also reducing your body’s protein breakdown rate (catabolism).

This makes BCAA supplements especially useful for supporting muscular endurance during workouts, helping you maintain your muscle mass while on a diet, and especially aiding in recovery following an intense workout.

Why take a BCAA supplement?

  1. 1. Improves muscle protein synthesis

  2. 2. Decreases muscle catabolism, especially while in a caloric deficit

  3. 3. Enhances workouts, reducing effects of fatigue allowing you to train harder for longer

  4. 4. Improved recovery time, decreased effect of DOMS

  5. 5. Supports hormonal balance

  6. 6. Enhanced immunity

  7. 7. Regulates cell metabolism independent of insulin

Getting the Best Out of BCAAs

BCAA supplements have become one of the most popular fitness supplements on the market, taken by professional bodybuilders as well as by people trying to put on muscle mass and transform their bodies.

However, BCAA supplements are not made equal. BCAA supplements that are in a free-form (ie. L-Leucine instead of just Leucine) require no digestion - they are rapidly absorbed and your body begins to use them right away after ingestion.

Countless research articles all point to the same thing - take BCAAs to reduce muscle breakdown and enhance performance. BCAAs improve psychomotor performance, maintain mitochondria content while detraining and are recommended for all sporting activities that change in intensity and require quick responses to external signals such a football, baseball, hockey and soccer.
