Branched medium-chain essential amino acids, or BCAAs, that humans cannot produce and need to be ingested through the diet. As its name indicates, they have a branched molecular structure, there are three of them; valine, leucine and isoleucine.
They are branched medium-chain essential amino acids, or BCAAs, that humans cannot produce and need to be ingested through the diet. As its name indicates, they have a branched molecular structure, there are three of them; valine, leucine and isoleucine. They make up 35-40% of the body’s protein and 15% of the amino acids in skeletal muscle.
BCAAs carry out various functions in the body, among them providing energy to the muscle in situations of intense exercise, favoring protein synthesis and stopping the catabolic (destroying) muscle effect of intense exercise.
Physical exercise generates muscle damage, which can be repaired after physical activity. BCAA amino acids, especially leucine, stimulates the amino acid absorption signal that insulin exerts on cells, while generating an anabolic effect that favors muscle protein synthesis (construction) before and after exercise.
An important feature of branched chain amino acids is that they are not broken down in the liver, but pass directly into the bloodstream and are therefore readily available to skeletal muscle and other tissues.
They stimulate protein synthesis: Through stimulation of insulin production, mainly due to leucine, muscle cells are able to capture more blood glucose to use as an energy source. Since branched-chain amino acids are also found in the bloodstream, the supply of amino acids allows a greater entry of them to build muscle.
They reduce protein catabolism: When consumed as an aid to energy production, they become available directly in the bloodstream and are then used as an energy substrate in the muscle fiber, thus alleviating possible catabolism.
Reduce fatigue: allowing an increase in performance in a sporty way.
