BCAA’s are a blend of the three amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine which have been researched to show that they improve recovery from intense weight training and more importantly help with lean muscle growth.
L-Leucine is responsible for enhanced muscle protein synthesis. What this means is that all the protein you consume; whether it be from whole food sources like chicken, beef, fish or from your protein shakes, your body is able to utilise the protein more efficiently for repair and building of lean muscle.
Think of it as a turbo charger for your body!
The best time to use a BCAA product is just before or during exercise. By sipping on BCAA’s during training you are preventing any muscle loss which may occur and priming your muscles to utilise the protein in your post workout shake a lot better.
BCAA’s are inexpensive and a powerful ally in your fitness arsenal.
