BCAA are branched chain amino acids. Our body cannot make them and they should be taken in with food or as a supplement. Our body needs them to maintain muscle growth, preserve muscle and break down protein.
There are three main BCAA’s: Leucine- the key amino acid that maintains insulin levels, preserves lean mass and boosts muscle growth. The other 2: isoleucine( protein break down, muscle maintenance) and valine( same effect) are there to support leucine’s work.
Most people get these essential amino acids from lean meat, eggs and nuts or any protein-high foods. Athletes take more of them as supplements, as they use the ones from food up and need extra to support their high intense exercise.
There are a tonne of mixtures of BCAA’s out there, but there is no real necessity to take them, unless you are on a low-calorie( or low-protein) diet or are an athlete. Although, from personal experience, my body feels much better after having BCAA’s during exercise. It is good to change brand from time to time, as well. The best proportion is 2:2:1.
Do not take too much amino acids, as they are just useless in overdose, as your body will only use as much as it needs. It is all about BALANCE, but, in this case, your body can balance it out on its own.
Branched chain amino acids don’t usually have any side effects, although sometimes loss of coordination or fatigue may occur.
