Description

Leucine is an amino acid and is one of the essential amino acids and is 1 of the 3 BCAAs. BCAA stands for branched-chain amino acid and means 'branched-chain amino acids'. The 3 BCAAs are leucine, isoleucine and valine. Of these three amino acids, leucine is the most important amino acid and plays an important role in the recovery of your muscles.



Amino acids are called essential if the body cannot make them itself. They must then be obtained from food (supplements).

How does BCAA work?
When a muscle has run out of energy and still has to train for a while, the muscle enters a very difficult phase. The muscle urgently needs fuel, namely carbohydrates or glycogen that is stored in the depots between the muscles and the liver. When this stock is also used up, the body can start on the fat reserves of the body. However, this process takes time and the fats are not converted into energy as quickly. What now?

Then the body can claim the proteins and the proteins of the muscle. The easiest muscle proteins are then addressed. Proteins that provide energy the fastest and are easy to convert are the 3 valuable and essential amino acids: the Branched-Chain amino acids, or BCAAs.
