Branched chain amino acids are one of the most effective supplements on the market. BCAA are of special importance to athletes, because there are metabolized in the muscle, rather than in the liver. BCAA are the most abundant amino acids found in muscle tissue and are the most readily absorbed group of amino acids.
A deficiency in any one of these aminos will cause muscle loss. BCAA 5000 contains the ideal ratio of 2 parts Leucine to 1 part Isoleucine and Valine. These amino acids increase nitrogen retention, essential to building lean muscle. BCAAs are considered “essential” because the body can not build them from other compounds. Instead they must come from diet or supplementation.
BCAA's are also excellent anti-catabolic because they can help prevent protein breakdown and muscle loss, which is significantly important to those who are pre-contest diets.
