Promotes Healthy Muscle Mass: BCAAs may play a role in athletic support by promoting muscle nitrogen, enhancing alanine and glutamine production, decreasing lactate production and boosting energy while attenuating protein breakdown. These actions help to sustain muscle work capacity and recovery. Studies have reported that post-exercise protein intake helps to enhance the repair of muscle protein. Additionally, some research has suggested that BCAAs may moderate the progression of central nervous system fatigue during exercise, supporting mental performance.*
Promotes muscle function during exercise.
The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These essential amino acids provide nutritional support for athletes and individuals seeking optimal lean muscle mass. Branched chain amino acids are unique in that they are not metabolized by the liver.
