BCAA amino acids – BCAA or branched chain amino acids, are often sought after by athletes seeking optimal muscle mass. The branched chained amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine, are known to help boost energy levels, while offsetting the breakdown of muscle protein breakdown occurring during exercise. Pure Encapsulations offers BCAA in an easy to swallow vegetarian capsule. Best seller for athletes, please call us to speak with one of our vitamin experts, we are happy to help.
Provides safe nutritional support for athletes and individuals seeking optimal lean muscle mass. The three branched chain amino acids, leucine, isoleucine and valine, boost energy while helping to counteract muscle protein breakdown during exercise.
What Is It?
The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These essential amino acids provide nutritional support for athletes and individuals seeking optimal lean muscle mass. Branched chain amino acids are unique in that they are not metabolized by the liver.*
Uses For BCAAs
Promotes Healthy Muscle Mass: BCAAs may play a role in athletic support by promoting muscle nitrogen, enhancing alanine and glutamine production, decreasing lactate production and boosting energy while attenuating protein breakdown These actions help to sustain muscle work capacity and recovery.
Studies have reported that post-exercise protein intake helps to enhance the repair of muscle protein. Additionally, some research has suggested that BCAAs may moderate the progression of central nervous system fatigue during exercise, supporting mental performance.*
What Is The Source?
Isoleucine and valine are produced from corn dextrose fermentation. Leucine is originally extracted from protein and is extensively processed and purified.
Suggested Use: 1/2–1 scoop per day, mixed with 10 oz. of water or juice.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
