BCAA Powder Overview
BodyStrong's BCAA Powder contains the three branched-chain amino acids: L-leucine, L-valine and L-isoleucine. These three amino acids, along with glutamine, are held in high regard for their ability to improve recovery, build muscle, promote protein synthesis and prevent muscle breakdown during periods of dieting and overtraining. BCAAs cannot be produced in the human body and must be drawn from diet or supplemental sources.
BCAAs are naturally found in many protein-rich foods like eggs, meat, fish and milk. The most powerful BCAA, L-leucine, is known as the “anabolic trigger,” because the presence of L-leucine can regulate and determine the rate of protein synthesis for all other amino acids. More L-leucine leads to more muscle growth and makes better use out of all the other amino acids being utilized by your body. It helps you regulate your weight, pack on lean muscles mass and lowers cholesterol levels. L-leucine is also a good source of a short-term energy burst. It helps , decrease muscle protein breakdown, and prevents muscle fatigue and soreness
L-valine is found in grains, mushrooms, peanuts, soy proteins, cottage cheese and other dairy. This amino acid helps supply energy to muscles, which aids in endurance and muscle repair, allowing you to have a more effective workout. It also helps maintain a healthy nitrogen balance in adults, fortifies the immune system and helps control stress.
L-isoleucine can boost energy and stamina. It is best known for its support of blood clotting and muscle tissue repair skills. This amino acid can help the body more quickly recover from a strenuous workout, making it quite popular with bodybuilders and endurance athletes. You'll get an initial energy boost that then lasts into muscle repair, making it faster and more efficient. As it breaks down in the blood in the muscles, L-isoleucine regulates blood sugar and energy levels, increasing your body's ability to use glucose during exercise. L-isoleucine can be found in foods like meat, fish, eggs, seeds and pulses.
Research supports faster recovery and less muscle breakdown when supplementing with BCAAs. BCAAs are best utilized when taken before, during and after your workouts. They can also be taken with meals to enhance protein synthesis and the absorption of other amino acids. Many elite bodybuilders like to take BCAA powder with their cheat meals to improve the macronutrient content and ease the guilt. *
