Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are amino acids named for their chemical structure resembling branches on a tree. It is important to note that these essential amino acids are not made by the body, which means they have to be obtained through diet or supplementation. BCAAs are specific amino acids that have the most significant role in stimulating protein synthesis since they upregulate enzymes that are responsible for muscle growth. The three different BCAAs do not all behave in the same way as each other. Each one prefers building certain areas of the new protein structure.
BCAA’s make up about 25% of animal protein and occur in a 2:1:1 ratio (leucine: isoleucine: valine) in nature. High quality supplements should reflect this ratio
BCAA supplementation has been linked to muscle growth, to reduce muscle soreness and fatigue and to prevent muscle wasting. There has been some research on BCAAs protecting the liver in those with liver diseases.
