BCAAs Definition
What Are BCAAs?

Branch Chain Amino Acids. BCAA s have been shown to increase nitrogen retention, protein synthesis and muscle growth. BCAAs or Branched Chain Amino acids are a group of three essential amino acids: isoleucine, leucine, and valine. The combination of these three essential amino acids make up approximately 1/3 of skeletal muscle in the human body, and play an important role in protein synthesis. BCAA’s are currently used clinically to aid in the recovery of burn victims, as well as for supplementation for strength athletes. They are responsible for promoting muscle growth and repair, particularly after strenuous training. It is now used in sports drinks also, it reduces perceived exertion, but that it has little effect on performance. In general terms, after a bout of resistance training the muscle will be in a catabolic state, with a protein synthesis deficit, it synthesizes protein. This is because post exercise the MAPK signaling pathway is activated to induce muscle growth.
