Importance of BCAAs

by Brooke Goldstein October 06, 2016

Supplemental Branched-chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are a key factor in building and maintaining muscle during an intense lifting or cardio session. Since BCAAs are metabolized in muscle cells, they can be utilized immediately to support building new protein or protecting existing muscle, as well as providing quick energy, instead of being processed in the liver. BCAA supplements can enhance stamina during explosive exercises and may increase mind/muscle connection. They contain the three branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine.

Main Benefits of Branched Amino Acids.

  • Strength and power.
  • Muscle building potential.
  • Energy level.
  • Preservation of muscle
  • Fat loss aid

BCAAs allow for increased protein synthesis in the body. This allows for maximum muscle recovery = more muscle growth!

The production of serotonin often rises during exercises, which increases the ‘perception of fatigue. This means you will become more tired during a workout. BCAAs will prevent this from occurring, giving you more energy. Therefore you can work out longer and lift heavier!

BCAAs have also been shown to reduce muscle soreness. DOMS is an stands for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness and is the pain and aching you feel in your muscles the day. BCAA's can prevent this and help supply the body with the raw materials necessary to start the rebuilding and muscle recovery.

Best BCAA Products

Alpha Aminos formula got a boost with the addition of HydroMax. This is a glycerol that signals to the muscles to absorb water. In terms of hydration, this will allow more necessary nutrients to get into the system without leaving the body dehydrated. On top of that, you will also receive your 3x patented Leucine blend along with other Amino Acids. 

Xtend BCAAs contain 7g of BCAAs naturally designed and research-proven 2:1:1 ratio Also includes a proprietary blend of hydration-inducing electrolytes,  a sugar-free way to help anyone grind through a grueling gym session.

Amino-Gro uses a novel form of Leucine, called Leucitor, that will be able to spark protein synthesis with unseen efficiency. Amino Gro also with an ample amount of Valine and Isoleucine, at clinical doses for proven muscle growth.

Best BCAAs formula is the first to bond the three branched chain amino acids - leucine, isoleucine and valine - utilizing a proprietary process route, to form oligiopeptides (a bonded chain of amino acids; for example, a peptide linked chain). The oligiopeptide-based branched chain amino acids may act as a better transport vehicle, allowing for more efficient metabolization, greater bio-activity, enhanced onset time, and a generally improved BCAA model.
