Branch Chained Amino Acids are the building blocks for protein synthesis and energy production. BCAAs enter directly into the blood stream and are then burned for energy during a workout.
Consuming prior to workouts can increase uptake to muscle tissue, which has many benefits including:
-Improving muscular oxidation
-Increase growth hormones leading to muscle gains
-Decrease muscle damage and increase recovery time
BCAAs have been proven to inverted performances and alloy individuals to train for a longer period of time without losing energy.
BCAAs are found to have a positive effect on fat loss. They play a role in sparing glycogen and increase insulin levels, speeding up fat loss. While on a calorie deficit diet, BCAAs will help preserve the muscle while shedding the pounds.
Testosterone tend to rise during an intense training session. Post-workout those levels will decrease significantly, which is where BCAAs come to play. Studies show that consuming BCAAs prior to a workout will cause testosterone levels to remain the same after a workout leading to maximum muscle growth.
For optimal use: take between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, during workouts, and/or immediately after workouts.
