Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs)


Muscle Growth:

Amino acids are best known for their role in building muscle and strength in athletes, in particular:

Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), named according to their molecular structure, include the essential amino acids valine, leucine and isoleucine, and can be taken in supplement form before, during or after a workout to help improve exercise performance and endurance in addition to potentially aiding in muscle recovery.

Product Description

During exercise, increased levels of serotonin, the hormone that regulates mood, can cause fatigue. As a neurotransmitter, serotonin signals the brain that the body is tired as the amino acid tryptophan travels to the brain. Several studies have proven that BCAAs, specifically valine, can potentially help reduce serotonin levels and help prevent tryptophan from entering the brain as a means of bypassing exercise fatigue.
