BCAAs, or branched-chain amino acids are the building blocks of muscle protein; these are Valine, Leucine and Iso-leucine.
These three amino acids are part of the essential amino acids, meaning your body can’t produce them so you need to get them through your diet.
BENEFITS OF BCAAs:
- BCAAs preserve muscle glycogen stores
- BCAAs help prevent unwanted muscle breakdown
- BCAAs are a calorie-free way to recover after exercise
- BCAAs help fire up fat loss
- Reduced muscle soreness
