Branched chain amino acids, or BCAAs, are 3 of the 8 essential amino acids your body needs for muscle repair and other various purposes. The three essential amino acids in question are:
Amino acids can be divided into essential amino acids and non-essential amino acids. Your body is able to make the non-essential amino acids itself, so this does not apply to the essential amino acids. You will have to get these yourself through your diet or supplements.
BCAAs are important for your body, they play an important role in protein synthesis. The amino acids ensure that your muscles recover faster after an intensive training. They can also ensure that you have less muscle soreness during or after training. It is important to get enough protein for this.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, the BCAAs also have a positive effect on fat burning and prevent muscle breakdown. We can therefore conclude that the amino acids positively support many processes for your body.
It is not always necessary to take your BCAAs separately in the form of a supplement. This very much depends on your daily diet. At Loyalprotein, the BCAAs are already in the vegan shakes, which means that you get a complete protein blend with the essential amino acids.
