NOW Foods Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's) are 3 essential amino acids which are abundant in muscles. The branched chain amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are three of the eight essential amino acids that the human body must receive in food. These amino acids cannot be synthesized in the liver.
The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine and valine are essential amino acids, and thus cannot be made in the body. BCAAs are critical for muscle protein synthesis, and because BCAAs can be used as fuel during intense exercise, BCAA supplementation can help to preserve existing muscle tissue. In addition, BCAAs can support the recovery process by promoting the normal repair processes that take place after exertion. BCAAs also play an important role in the maintenance of proper immune system function and the support of healthy aging.
