BCAAs are essential, meaning they have to be consumed through diet, since our bodies can’t make them. BCAAs provide active adults support for exercise performance and muscle recovery.
Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. These nutrients are usually obtained through protein-rich foods. While they are a popular supplement for athletes and exercise enthusiasts, their muscle-support benefits can be had by anyone.
There are a variety of amino acids, but only leucine, isoleucine and valine are called “branched chain amino acids.”
Branched Chain Amino Acids Benefits
- Supports protein synthesis in muscle & liver
- Enhances exercise performance & recovery
- Encourages healthy brain function & immunity
For Fitness and Beyond
The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) valine, leucine and isoleucine are essential nutrients that your body usually gets by digesting protein-rich foods such as meat, dairy and legumes. BCAAs encourage protein synthesis in skeletal muscle and the liver, promote muscle function, support exercise performance and muscle recovery and support healthy brain and immune function.
Promotes muscle strength, endurance and recovery
BCAAs are used by athletes for a reason: Research shows that BCAAs help to both maintain and build muscle strength and endurance, support physical performance and brain function and promote muscle recovery. But it is important to note that BCAA supplementation can be advantageous for anyone — not just strength or endurance athletes.
Supports immune system health
Athletes need healthy immunity for peak performance, and BCAAs help maintain healthy immune system function. Again, BCAAs can be beneficial to support anyone’s immune system health. So take a page from the athlete’s playbook. Help maintain healthy skeletal muscle, promote brain function and support your immune system with Branched Chain Amino Acids.
