Branched chain amino acids by Now Foods is a pharmaceutical degree product that will provide you with the BCAA´s you need to ensure optimal performance. Branched chain amino acids (BCAA) are essential from two points of view:
- Firstly, because our body is not capable of producing them.
- And secondly, because the muscles use these amino acids first due to stress (for example, after a workout or due to lack of nutrients).
Leucine is an essential amino acid from the BCAA group. Some of the most recent scientific results reveal that leucine is one of the most important amino acids, as it directly stimulates the synthesis of proteins from the muscles. As well as high levels of leucine also sends an anabolic signal to the muscle cells.
Leucine also activates regeneration and prevents destruction of the muscle (anti-catabolic effect). Together with the consumption of high doses of proteins or quick absorption protein shakes, leucine is also effective. BCAAs have energizing, anabolic and anti-catabolic effects.
