The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are l-leucine, l-isoleucine, and l-valine. These essential amino acids provide nutritional support for athletes and individuals seeking optimal lean muscle mass. Branched chain amino acids are unique in that they are not metabolized by the liver
Promotes Healthy Muscle Mass: BCAAs may play a role in athletic support by promoting muscle nitrogen, enhancing alanine and glutamine production, decreasing lactate production and boosting energy while attenuating protein breakdown These actions help to sustain muscle work capacity and recovery. Studies have reported that post-exercise protein intake helps to enhance the repair of muscle protein. Additionally, some research has suggested that BCAAs may moderate the progression of central nervous system fatigue during exercise, supporting mental performance.
L-Isoleucine and l-valine are produced from corn dextrose fermentation. L-leucine is originally extracted from plant protein and is extensively processed and purified.
Pure Encapsulations recommends 1200-3000 mg per day, in divided doses, between meals.
If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product. Until more research is conducted, individuals with ALS, a history of depression, or kidney or liver disease should consult a doctor before supplementing with BCAAs.
