Uses For BCAAs
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.*
What Is The Source?
Isoleucine and valine are produced from corn dextrose
fermentation. Leucine is originally extracted from protein
and is extensively processed and purified.
