Some of the most essential and fundamentally important amino acids for strength training, the benefits of BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids) are increasingly being recognised by the scientific and sports nutrition communities.
BCAAs are comprised of three essential amino acids - leucine, isoleucine, and valine. As these are essential amino acids, they are typically found within dietary sources, but often athletes, bodybuilders and other fitness enthusiasts will want to supplement their intake. At SCI-MX, we have developed a range of BCAA fortified powders to help you do exactly that. Any individual passionate about fitness and bettering his or her physical performance when training can benefit from BCAA powders.
What are the benefits of BCAAs?
BCAAs can help the body experience less fatigue during training, something that has made it a popular choice among athletes who want to have punishing or extreme training regimes.
The amino acid tryptophan has been shown to lead to the development of the neurotransmitter serotonin. At times when the body has high levels of serotonin - such as during exercise - the body can experience fatigue. This means you feel tired, and don’t necessary reach optimum performance when it comes to training. By limiting the amount of tryptophan that reaches the brain, you can reduce serotonin levels and enjoy more energy, which is where BCAA supplements can help.
There are a number of other benefits to BCAA consumption as well - they can boost your immune system, support your anabolic drive, and increase rates of recovery and muscle growth. Whether you want to bulk up your muscle mass, reduce levels of body fat or increase your endurance to conquer a new physical challenge, fortifying your nutrition plan with additional BCAAs can help you achieve your goals.
