BCAA

Product Name: BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acid)
Product Numbers: VNV636
Product Count: 120/CT
Product Form: Capsules
Sizes Available: 120 Capsules

Overview
Of the nine essential amino acids, valine, leucine, and isoleucine have branched side chains; these are called branched-chain amino acids or BCAAs. These BCAAs play important roles during exercise and in the maintenance and growth of skeletal muscle. During exercise, BCAAs are used as an energy source and also play an important role glyconeogenesis – a mechanism for reusing the glucose used for energy in muscle. Because the body requires increased amounts of energy during exercise, BCAA oxidation is increased; therefore supplementing with additional BCAAs will preserve muscle tissue from being broken down to acquire BCAAs. BCAAs are energy-rich in the sense that their oxidation produces increased amounts of adenosine triphosphate or ATP. ATP is used by cells as an energy carrier. It is often referred to as “molecular currency” and is responsible for transporting energy within cells for metabolism.

Our BCAA delivers leucine, isoleucine, and valine in the ideal ratio of 2:1:1 with the convenience of a 2 capsule serving size.
