Properties of BCAA Caps
The BCAA's are essential amino acids that cannot be missing from the diet of athletes, since they make up a 33% of all the muscle protein.
The BCAA's perform several functions in the organism, but they are known for stimulating the muscle protein synthesis and reduce its breakdown during physical exercise. The amino acid leucine seems to be the most important of the three in order to stimulate the muscle protein synthesis, even though they are all fundamental to improve the protein synthesis.
Branched chain amino acids are a source of energy during muscle contraction if there is no glycogen available; if this happens, it can lead to a loss of amino acids, which will hinder the athlete's performance and, consequently, prolong the muscle recovery period. In order to avoid this situation as well as the protein loss, taking BCAA's will be very important.
Probably, the most important benefit of branched chain amino acids for athletes is the post-workout recovery. After training, the body needs amino acids in order to meet the demands for the muscle building process. BCAA by Reflex Nutrition provides a perfectly balanced amino acid supply of an extra-fast absorption.
