What Are Branched Chain Amino Acids [BCAAs]?
Branched Chain Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein. These building blocks refer to the three essential amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. The human body cannot manufacture essential amino acids, therefore, they must be obtained from food sources in your diet, or through supplementation.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) are one of the most popular and effective sports supplements on the market. Research suggests, that BCAAs have a positive impact on muscle protein synthesis, the muscle-building process, and prevents protein degradation or muscle mass breakdown. If you’re sore after your workout, then BCAAs might be exactly what you’re looking for to speed up your recovery and get you back under the squat rack faster. Plus, they make a great healthy treat like BCAA popsicles.
BCAA Benefits Include
- Improved Muscle Recovery
- Reduced Muscle Mass Breakdown
- Rebuilding Lean Muscle Mass
- Reduced Exercise-Induced Muscle Soreness
- Delays Muscle Fatigue
- Increase Energy Levels
- Improve Endurance
- Improves Body Composition
Should You Take BCAAs On Non-Training Days?
Duration matters, meaning that the longer you supplement with BCAAs the faster you’ll recover and help the muscle rebuilding process. Not to mention Swolverine’s lemon-lime BCAA is outrageously delicious. If you are not consuming an adequate level of protein, then we recommend taking BCAAs between meals and throughout the day on non-training days.
Even if you’re supplementing with protein, it’s still a good idea to use BCAAs to help improve your performance, especially when you use them to make BCAA popsicles!
