BCAA is an anti-catabolic agent consisting of three essential amino acids including Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. This supplement is mainly used for its potential to support muscle recovery.
Branched chained amino acids (BCAA) are made up of a group of amino acids namely: Leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These three amino acids form part of the nine essential amino acids which are those that are not synthesized by the body and, therefore, have to be taken in through our diets. As an anti-catabolic supplement, BCAA utilizes free-form amino acids (the most readily absorbed form of amino acids) to support the recovery of muscle fatigue.
During periods of low-calorie intake or intense weight training, the muscles are broken down and this results in the loss of muscle mass. BCAA supplementation, acting as an anti-catabolic agent, supports the sparing of muscle mass and this aids muscle recovery. When muscle mass is preserved, body muscle composition and exercise performance could be enhanced in conjunction with a proper weight training program.
Some natural sources of BCAA include: chicken, eggs, fish, beans, nuts and lentils and another good source of BCAA is soy protein.
