BCAA - Branch Chain Amino Acids
For those aiming to
- build muscle
- spare muscle during exercise

Branch Chain Amino Acids are considered to be essential amino acids. They are in constant demand by the body as they cannot be synthesized . They possess unique, potent anabolic and anti-catabolic characteristics and serve as a critical energy source (fuel) as well as valuable nutrition for muscle repair.
The unique characteristics of these amino acids include their metabolism in the muscle tissue mass and not the liver, as is the case with all other amino acids. BCAA's play an important role in protein synthesis and energy production. In humans, about 15-25% of total protein intake is BCAAs, with the tri-amino stack comprising of 35% of all essential amino acids in body protein, and around 13% in skeletal muscle.
