DO YOU KNOW YOUR BCAAs?
THE ABCíS OF BRANCHED CHAIN AMINO ACIDS
WWW.SUPERHEALTHCENTER.COM

Branched chain amino acids are essentialóthat means you canít make them in your body, but you have to get them through your diet. Most people today donít have a healthy enough diet to supply their body with BCAAs. The drawback to that is it forces your body to use your own amino acids from muscle tissue for fuel when there is a demand.

When you take in protein, the amino acids are broken down and metabolized in the liver and burned off as fuel or to the muscle where they make more muscle tissue; BCAAs are metabolized within the muscle meaning that they are the protein synthesizing power you need to build and maintain muscle mass. Another benefit of BCAAs is the anti catabolic effect of the specific amino leucine which halts the havoc wreaked on muscles during extended periods of fasting by preventing breakdown and encouraging cell growth.

BCAAs have also been linked to reduced fatigue and increase training endurance to take that tiring load off your body when you are building your goals.
