Benefits of BCAAS

by Brooke Goldstein November 20, 2015

Branch Chained Amino Acids are the building blocks for protein synthesis and energy production. BCAAs enter directly into the blood stream and are then burned for energy during a workout.

Consuming prior to workouts can increase uptake to muscle tissue, which has many benefits including:

-Improving muscular oxidation

-Increase growth hormones leading to muscle gains

-Decrease muscle damage and increase recovery time

Performance 

BCAAs have been proven to inverted performances and alloy individuals to train for a longer period of time without losing energy.

Fat Loss

BCAAs are found to have a positive effect on fat loss. They play a role in sparing glycogen and increase insulin levels, speeding up fat loss. While on a calorie deficit diet, BCAAs will help preserve the muscle while shedding the pounds.

Hormones

Testosterone tend to rise during an intense training session. Post-workout those levels will decrease significantly, which is where BCAAs come to play. Studies show that consuming BCAAs prior to a workout will cause testosterone levels to remain the same after a workout leading to maximum muscle growth.

Recommended Products

For optimal use: take between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, during workouts, and/or immediately after workouts.
