A buyers guide to Branched Amino Acids


Branched Amino Acids or BCAA (Branched-chain Amino acids) are compounds created through the mixture of three types of essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine (responsible for the synthesis of proteins by the muscle fibres). Essential amino acids are those that the body cannot produce autonomously, therefore they must be obtained through diet. They are available in different formats and flavours so that each user can consume whatever suits them best.

Branched Amino Acids

Benefits of Branched Amino acids

  • · Increase protein synthesis to a greater extent than a protein does.
  • · Provide energy to the body muscles and avoid wear and tear as well as muscle fatigue.
  • · Help to develop muscle mass.
  • · Speed up the recovery process following a hard workout.
  • · Reduce damage to muscles thanks to their analgesic properties.

Format of Branched Amino Acids

Branched Amino Acids are available in three formats: powder, capsules and pills. The format does not affect the benefits of the product at all, so you should choose whatever you find easiest to take.

Ratios of Branched Amino Acids

At present there are Branched Amino Acids in different ratios: 2:1:1, 4:1:1 and 8:1:1 (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine). The choice of one ratio or another (the proportion of the three amino acids), will depend on how advanced the user in question is with regard to the intensity of the exercise they usually carry out. The ratio the products are designed for and the most advisable is 2:1:1, as it is nearer to the relation of BCAA that is found in animal protein.
