BCAA Energy is enriched with vitamins B3, B5, B6 and B12, which together with other substances support the reduction of fatigue, in 2 different flavors Citrus with acai and Tropical.
What exactly is BCAA?
BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids) are branched chain amino acids. There are a total of 3 of these essential amino acids namely leucine, isoleucine and valine. Essential means that your body cannot make them itself, so that you can only get them through nutrition. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and proteins are the building blocks of muscles. Research has shown that some amino acids and in particular branched chain amino acids help to prevent fatigue and also help maintain muscle mass and strength during physical stress.
1. Functions of BCAAs
Better absorption of protein by the muscles and extra energy during training.
The BCAAs are of particular importance in a nutritional program because they are not broken down in the liver but transported directly to the muscle. Once in muscle, BCAAs play an important role in transforming by stimulating the body to build muscle as it affects certain aspects of muscle metabolism. Besides the fact that BCAAs play an important role in protein synthesis, it also provides extra energy during hard workouts.
2. BCAAs and muscle mass .
BCAAs reduce protein breakdown by stimulating insulin release. Insulin is an anabolic hormone often associated with the production of various energy molecules in the body. Research has shown that insulin also plays a very important role in preventing muscle breakdown after periods of physical stress, such as weight lifting and running.
3. BCAAs and muscle growth.
BCAAs and especially leucine have anabolic (muscle building) abilities by affecting chemical signals that activate protein synthesis. The body is converted into an anabolic state with the help of available amino acids. To get the most benefit from BCAA supplements, it is important to get enough protein from your diet to support your increased ability to grow.
4. BCAAs and Mental Fatigue.
BCAAs are known to have a positive effect on mood and mental function in athletes. Research supports the fact that BCAAs can decrease serotonin in the brain. Serotonin can cause a feeling of fatigue. BCAAs thus lower mental fatigue and keep you mentally sharp during prolonged workouts.
