The body uses these amino acids to promote healing of injured tissue, speed recovery and protects against catabolism (muscle tissue breakdown).
BCAA account for one third of all the protein in muscle tissue, this makes them highly important in helping to build muscle and provide energy to muscle cells.
BCAA are particularly present in muscle tissue. They play critical roles relevant to exercise performance and the maintenance and growth of skeletal muscle tissues.
BCAA furnish major sources of constituents for the biosynthesis of other amino acids, such as L-Glutamine and L-Alamine, which are important carbohydrate precursors and fuel for the gut.
- Muscle building
- Prevents muscle loss
- Important for protein synthesis
- Isoleucine is needed in the formation of hemoglobin
- Leucine is necessary for wound recovery in skin and bones, helps protect muscle tissue
- Valine aids in balancing nitrogen content in our bodies
