|Doctor’s Best Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) refers to the essential amino acids: Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. These amino acids are considered essential because they cannot be synthesized by the body, therefore they must be obtained through dietary intake. BCAAs can be found in many protein sources, such as milk, meat and eggs, but these sources may not provide an optimal amount of these essential amino acids. BCAAs have been shown to be vital for muscle protein synthesis. BCAAs act as constitute proteins for the building of muscles, but more importantly, their presence activates signaling pathways for muscle growth1, 2, 3. Supplementation of BCAAs prevents fatigue during exercise by attenuating the decline of circulating levels of BCAAs, a process which can result in fatigue. BCAA supplementation has been shown to improve athletic performance during both strength and endurance exercises, as well as increase preferential loss of body fat4, 5 6, 7.|
|Doctor’s Best Instantized BCAA Powder contains a blend of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine, which are essential amino acids that the body cannot synthesize on its own and therefore must get through dietary sources.* |
BCAAs, unlike most other amino acids, are metabolized within muscle tissue, allowing them to be used as energy by muscle cells to produce cellular energy in the form of ATP. *
