What the Heck are BCAA’s and Why are they so Important?

What is the importance of sipping Branch Chain Amino Acids during your daily workouts?

Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) are a great source of energy for muscles that are undergoing metabolic stress (Working Out). As you’re experiencing metabolic stress, the BCAA’s help support the process of protein synthesis (Building Muscle) which will lead to more lean body mass and less fat tissue.  BCAA’s are also important because they are the second most abundant group of amino acids in the body, besides glutamine, which means they are essential to your overall health. One of the most notorious things BCAA’s are associated with is their ability to reduce soreness after an intense workout session.

Side Note: Your Body does not naturally produce BCAA’s so the only way to get them is by either supplementing or obtaining them through your diet.

Hint: Never buy BCAA’s that don’t have a 2:1:1 ratio of L-Leucine, L- Isoleucine, and L-Valine.
