All your BCAA questions answered!

BCAA’s is often one of the most talked about supplement. Do I need it? When should I take it? Does it work? What does it do?.. the list goes on.

To simplify it, BCAA’s (Branched Chain Amino Acids) are composed of 3 essential amino acids (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine) that cannot be produced by the body. As a result, these must be consumed through food sources, or through supplementation.

BCAA’s have many benefits that span from helping to build muscle through protein synthesis, reducing exercise fatigue, improving endurance and aiding muscle soreness. Over time, with all the above in mind it becomes apparent that BCAA’s can assist with building lean muscle mass, can assist in improving endurance and can also prove beneficial while you aim to build strength. When discussing BCAA’s, it is often noted that they prove extremely beneficial for those following a plant-based diet due to the lack of branch chain amino acids in your typical vegan based diet.
