Great for Building Muscle
Branched-chain amino acids are essential nutrients that the body obtains from proteins found in food, especially meat and dairy products. They include leucine, isoleucine and valine. 'Branched-chain' refers to the chemical structure of these amino acids.
Branched-chain amino acids may be taken by athletes to improve athletic performance, prevent fatigue, improve concentration and reduce muscle breakdown during intense exercise.
Branched-chain amino acids stimulate the building of protein in muscle.
There are nine essential amino acids (EAA). Histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine.
Essential amino acids can’t be made by your body and must be obtained through your diet.
When you eat protein, it is broken down into amino acids. These are then used to help your body with various processes such as building muscle.
