BCAA's are metabolized directly in muscle tissue and help to prevent muscle breakdown, promote muscle protein synthesis, provide fuel for muscular energy, speed muscle recovery, support endurance and promote anabolic hormone production.
BCAAs are the most important group of amino acids for just about anyone, they are made up of 3 essential amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine.
L-Leucine- is necessary for optimal growth and for the maintenance of nitrogen balance in adults. Its main function is to regulate protein metabolism which intern preserves lean muscle tissue, supplies the body with energy under stress and keep muscle glycogen and nitrogen balance in check (used to power muscle contractions).
L-Isoleucine- plays a crucial role in the production of hemoglobin. It supports blood sugar levels as well as energy levels, and is responsible for muscle recovery after exercise.
L-Valine- is involved in glucose metabolism, protein synthesis, the regulation of the immune system, tissue repair and muscle growth. L-Valine detoxifies and maintains proper nitrogen balance in the body.
L-Tyrosine- is a non-essential amino acid used by the cells to synthesize proteins, however just because it is "non-essential" and the body can make it from other things, doesn't mean its not necessary. L-Tyrosine deficiency can cause muscle loss, weakness, low protein levels and mood disorders. L-Tyrosine is also used to make many different neurotransmitters, including dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine (also known as adrenaline). To have these effects on the neurotransmitters, l-tyrosine requires adequate Vitamin B6 levels.
