BCAA’s or branched chain amino acids are grouped in with the most beneficial, most effective supplements in any sports nutritional program. The essential BCAA’s l eucine, isoleucine , and valine are of high importance for all athletes, as they are metabolized in the muscles, not in the liver. All the other amino acids are regulated by the gut and liver then circulated in the body. BCAA’s essentially are protein that is used as “fuel” and when the stores of BCAA’s have been depleted, the body catabolizes the lean muscle to get more energy. Keep your BCAA’s high, the body will not eat your lean muscle, thus allowing you to have continued muscle growth, keeping the body in an anabolic state.
