5 reasons to take (BCAA's) Branch Chain Amino Acids

March 14, 2015 1 min read

BCAA’s or Branch Chain Amino Acids have made a huge comeback in the fitness industry.  With many scientific studies backing the benefits, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise either.  So what are the ways that you can benefit from BCAA supplementation?
  1. BCAA’s Trigger Muscle Protein Synthesis for greater muscle growth and help retain muscle when you are absent from exercise
  2. BCAA’s increase fat burning and support fat loss: Studies show that people that take BCAA’s as regular supplementation have less body fat, more muscle and better body composition
  3. BCAA’s may improve strength during weight training: BCAA’s improve neuromuscular adaptions leading to enhanced strength gains
  4. BCAA’s enhance endurance activities and prevent fatigue: BCAA’s can be burned as energy to maintain ATP energy levels and they also prevent fatigue of the central nervous system by inhibiting the uptake of tryptophan into the brain
  5. Decrease muscle soreness and DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) so you can train more frequently
You can find BCAA's as a single supplement or find protein or pre-workouts with BCAA's already added in.  For best results you will take 5g of BCAA's either pre or post workout.
