Health Benefits at a Glance:

Branched Chain Amino Acids Br L-valine, L-leucine, and L-isoleucine are a great choice for people who wish to take a natural supplement to improve their sports performance. These amino acids can help your body synthesise protein, and help you recover better after exercise both mentally and physically, and help provide energy for your body.

Why it Works:

If you are following a rigorous exercise program, chances are that your need for physical and mental recovery will become greater over time. This is where Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) comes into the picture.

BCAAs L-valine, L-leucine, and L-isoleucine can help enhance protein synthesis in both livers- and muscle cells. Because they can be oxidized in the powerhouse of the cell (the mitochondria), the branched-chain amino acids may also provide energy and may serve as fuel sources for skeletal muscles during periods of metabolic stress.  Moreover, Branched Chain Amino Acids can improve mental and physical performance and repair the microtears that are a normal result of exercise. And to top it off, branched-chain amino acids can also reduce perceived exertion and mental fatigue during exercise, allowing you to continue your programme for longer.

The Science Behind the Product:

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are used to support liver function. In 2008, one study reported that supplementing BCAAs improved insulin resistance and beta-cell function. Furthermore,  it was also shown to improve energy metabolism and glucose tolerance in certain people.  Many athletes also use BCAAs. A current mouse study showed restoring hippocampal BCAA concentrations to normal levels had the effect of reinstating normal brain function by helping the synapses to function efficiently.
