What is BCAA?


BCAA - (branched-chain amino acids) Protein consists of twenty amino acids, nine of which are essential. This means that we cannot manufacture them ourselves, but they must be supplied via the diet. Only the essential amino acids have been shown to increase muscle growth after exercise. Three of the essential amino acids belong to the group of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) - leucine, isoleusine and valine. Of these, leucine is mainly attributed the greatest effect on muscle synthesis. The branched chain amino acids are metabolized in the muscles and are thus important for muscle metabolism. There is also a theory that the addition of BCCA would increase endurance during exercise. This is because the branched-chain amino acids sink into the bloodstream during exercise and compete with the amino acid tryptophan for the blood-brain barrier. Tryptophan is then converted to serotonin, which is thought to increase mental fatigue. Thus, with increased levels of BCAAs in the blood, fatigue could be reduced and performance improved.
