P0005 - BCAA 2:1:1 (Replaced - Do not use)
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) is made up of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. These are three essential amino acids which can't be produced by the body so must, therefore, be acquired through the diet and supplementation. Natural dietary sources of BCAAs include beef, chicken, fish, eggs, chickpeas, lentils and brown rice. Most protein powders and protein foods contain BCAAs due to their content of whey, milk and soy protein. The three amino acids work in conjunction with each other to make up approximately 35% of the body's muscle protein.
We recommend taking a BCAA complex at times of low calorie intake, such as in times of dieting or intense weight training. During this time, the body�s metabolic energy profile shifts from utilising carbohydrates and fat stores to breaking down muscle. BCAAs help to preserve the glycogen stores within the muscle, which provides energy to fuel our muscles while exercising. In addition, BCAAs fuel skeletal muscle during training to maximise your workout.
