Why do you need BCAAs?


About 1/3 of the protein found in your muscles is made up of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). These special amino acids cannot be produced by the body and so must be obtained through your daily diet. When you take BCAAs, they get straight to work in your muscles, as they do not need to be processed in the liver like other essential amino acids do. The 3 BCAAs are:

  • Leucine
  • Isoleucine
  • Valine
While a complete protein source, like soya, diary or meat will naturally contain these BCAAs, it can be effective to top up with a BCAA supplement.


What are the benefits of BCAAs?


BCAAs can be helpful for all types of sports and exercise workouts, whether you are cardio training or weightlifting. They are the key components in protein synthesis allowing you to maintain and build your muscle efficiently so you can go again and smash your fitness goals!


When should you take BCAA powder?


The general consensus on when is best to take BCAAs is to consume them immediately before and after your workouts, as well as during. That is why this BCAA powder has been formulated so you can increase your workout potential with 1 scoop of BCAA before, during and after your workouts.
