What are BCAAs?
BCAAs stands for Branched Chain Amino Acids. There are 3 essential amino acids that are believed to be most instrumental in building muscle, boosting physical strength and improving muscle recovery time. These are L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine. When taken as recommended as a supplement, athletes, bodybuilders, weight lifters and anyone who works out will see the effects in increased lean muscle mass, faster recovery time and added strength. Of the 3, L-Leucine initiates the synthesis of protein, making it invaluable for building muscle.
Who should take BCAAs?
Anyone who wants to increase power and strength, build lean muscle and speed up muscular recovery time would benefit from taking BCAA as a supplement. Athletes in training, bodybuilders, gym enthusiasts, endurance event participants, fitness professionals and weight lifters are among those who prize BCAA for its fast acting effectiveness. Research has shown that exercise increases the oxidation of BCAAs, reducing muscle damage and tissue breakdown.
What results should I get from BCAAs?
You should expect to build lean muscle and boost your physical performance, power and strength. BCAAs also speed up muscle recovery for reduced soreness after heavy training. Because BCAAs are metabolized in the muscles directly your body can use them as a fast energy source when needed, delaying muscular fatigue. BCAAs have an impact on replenishing glycogen stores so they can improve your energy levels, sending jolts of energy during exertion when you need it most.
How does BCAAs work?
BCAAs work by stimulating building of protein in muscles and are believed to reduce muscle breakdown. Because BCAAs send energy directly to your muscles, athletes, bodybuilders, gym enthusiasts, fitness professionals, endurance event participants and others often rely on BCAAs to prevent fatigue during periods of extended physical exertion. BCAAs aren’t produced by your body so you must get them from dietary sources or supplementation.
Is your BCAA supplement high quality?
Our BCAA capsules are 1000mg of the purest L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine available, meaning they offer fast absorption with better and more complete digestion. Each BCAA capsule from Sports Food™ has an impressive 1000mg with 180 tablets per bottle.
Are BCAAs safe?
BCAA supplements are completely safe. Since BCAAs are essential amino acids and needed for almost every biological process in the human body, they are completely safe as a supplement when taken as recommended. In fact, BCAAs have been successfully used in the treatment of severely burned victims as well as certain liver diseases. BCAAs make up a little over one third of the essential amino acids in muscle proteins and approximately 40% of the preformed amino acids necessary to mammals.
