What are BCAAs and what are they for?

[divider width=”1200px” margin=”0.2em” color=”rgb(217, 217, 217)”]

BCAA is a unique complex of three essential amino acids with a branched side chain structure, specifically leucine, isoleucine and valine. They act as a building material for muscle tissue and more than 30% of the human muscles are composed of them. The term “indispensable” itself means that the body is not capable of synthesizing these substances on its own and can only receive them with food.

What are the beneficial properties of BCAAs?

  • Prevent muscle breakdown (catabolism) during intense physical exertion;
  • Stimulate and provide muscle growth;
  • Facilitate recovery;
  • Provide the body with energy, increase endurance;
  • Contribute to the improvement of power indicators;
  • Helps fight body fat;
  • Enhances the effect of other sports supplements.

Types of BCAAs and Variants of Release Forms

Under the acronym BCAA, packaging may hide either the amino acids themselves with the branched side chain structure, or a complex based on them with the addition of other auxiliary components.

Another common difference between BCAA supplements is the different ratio of leucine, isoleucine and valine in them. The classic version is 2: 1: 1, but there are 4: 1: 1, 6: 1: 1, 8: 1: 1 and even more. Which BCAA is better to choose? There is no single answer. Everything here is purely individual. Many experienced athletes believe that the “classic” is better, and increasing the concentration of a very effective, but not particularly expensive leucine, allows manufacturers to raise the price to the maximum possible cost at a low cost of the additive.

Forms of release are already familiar to sports nutrition:

  • Powder;
  • Tablets;
  • Capsules
  • Liquid.

In terms of speed of assimilation, there is no difference. Of greater importance are price and ease of use. The most popular option is powder. It is cheaper and usually has a higher concentration of BCAA per serving. Capsules and tablets are more expensive, but more convenient to take. The liquid form is not very popular due to the high price without any efficiency advantages.
