BCAA:Benefits of Branched Chain Amino Acids

BCAA:Benefits of Branched Chain Amino Acids

If you are new to the fitness world the words Branched Chain Amino Acids seems a bit long and confusing. So if that may be the case for you Im about to make this topic a hell of a lot more simple.

If you are a busy person, and take your muscle gains seriously, these acids will help you a lot!

Bellow I will list off all much needed content to fully understand the BCAA.  For the sake of me typing that over and over again, BCAA stands for Branched Chain Amino Acids for those of you that may have just woke up haha.

What is a BCAA you might ask?

They are part of the building blocks of protein itself, its what muscle is made off, and any muscle is made of really.  Its also contained in foods that have eyeballs, and also eggs.

If you’re totally agains taking supplements, but want to get some good amino acids and are a vegan or vegetarian, I would suggest  Quinoa!  Its packed with good BCAAs.  However its not as much as you would find in meat or poultry.

Here are some other substitutes if you are vegetarian or vegan.

Leucine: soybeans and lentils
Isoleucine: almonds, cashews, and chickpeas
Valine: peanuts, sesame seeds, and lentils.

What are the benefits?

  1. Help with muscle preservation

If we can’t find food, or go a period where we can get the calories we need to maintain our mass, BCAAs will help preserve the muscle tissue from braking down.  For example if you are fasting this is the perfect supplement to take on the fasting day, along with a green tea, or a vegetable greens drink! So for all you body builders, and fasters out their, get some BCAAs to help you out!

2. Helps with muscle repair

Not only does it preserve the muscle it repairs it as well.  Why does it do that?

Muscle is composed of amino acids, because they are the building blocks to protein.  So the more we have the more protein synthesis can occur, and the more muscle we can repair and put on!  This also means less muscle soreness due to DOMS,(delayed onset muscle soreness. Usually soreness the day after a workout).

3. Prevent Fatigue

Yes it can help prevent fatigue in muscles.  The whole idea behind this is that since amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and that we can have better protein synthesis wile they are in our body, our muscles will be a little bit more resistant to fatigue.

4. Helps promote healthy hormone balance

Having the readily available supply of BCAAs can help with hormone balance in the body.  Protein that is built helps with the production of many hormones, as well as the BCAAs them self.  They are also used to create red blood cells in the body, and are involved in many other countless regulatory activities.

5. Helps promote increased metabolism and fat loss

Studies have shown that the people who take BCAAs on a regular basis have a significantly lower fat percentage than people who don’t.  Researchers are also thinking that isoleucine increases glucose intolerance, and leucine increases energy expenditure and fatty acid oxidation (process in which the body oxidizes fat to break it down for energy).


So thats the end y’all, hope you learned a thing or two with this blog post, be looking out for the video to this, and the podcast!  Well see you on the flip side.
