NutraKey BCAA

Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) is the name given to three of the eight essential amino acids needed to make protein: leucine, isoleucine and valine. They are called branched-chain because their structure has a ‘branch’ off the main trunk of the molecule. The combination of these three essential amino acids makes up approximately one-third of skeletal muscle in the human body. The body cannot produce BCAA’s on its own, but must obtain through diet or supplementation. In order to get energy, the body can actually break down muscle to get these BCAAs. By supplementing BCAAs during and after your workout, you can prevent muscle tissue breakdown, which occurs as a natural part of metabolism.

Almost 1/3 of muscle tissue is composed of BCAA, which are needed for muscle growth, the maintenance of muscle tissue and to preserve muscle stores of glycogen. BCAA’s can turn on the main muscle growth pathway in muscle tissue, which can increase protein synthesis and help prevent muscle tissue breakdown after strenuous exercise. Each serving of NutraKey ultra-micronized BCAA provides the three free form branched chain amino acids; L-Luecine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine in the proper 2:1:1 ratio.
