Branched Chain Amino Acids are Essential Fuel For the Athlete.
NZ Protein's Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) is a 2:1:1 blend of the amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine respectively.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and these three branched chain amino acids make up about 1/3 of amino acids present in our body. The body cannot produce them so they must be obtained from dietary consumption.
While other amino acids are metabolised in the liver, branched chain amino acids are metabolised in muscle.
BCAAs can be depleted from muscle under intense training or dieting, and a deficiency in any one of them may cause muscle loss (catabolism). Exercise can increase BCAA requirements.
Mix one scoop (~5g) in 250-500ml of water or other beverage, or use as directed.
