BCAA which stands for “Branched Chain Amino Acids” does make 35% of your muscles,
BCAA is an essential which means every protein you eat contains BCAA because there is a non-essential amino acid which is being made by your body itself so if the BCAA are already included in the protein you eat then why you should consume BCAA as a supplement
2. Why you should consume BCAA Supplements?
Although if you eat protein food and whey protein isolate there is not enough BCAA in there, that means they are not enough to build your muscles and you are still missing some nutrition. Specially if you work at high intensity then you need much high BCAA than any other athletes.
3. What is the benefits of BCAA?
BCAAs makes up one third of the total amino acids that your body needs to build muscles so
The main benefit is during workout it gives you energy and post workout it feeds your muscles and recover them, lets see what are those amino acids in the BCAA
The main three amino acids are leucine, isoleucine and valine
