BCAA stands for branched chain amino acids. The amino acids owe this name to their branched structure. BCAAs include the three essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. Since the body cannot produce essential amino acids itself, they must be ingested through food. Most amino acids are metabolized in the liver after absorption via the intestines. However, this does not apply to BCAAs. Among other things, these are used directly in the muscles, where they serve as an energy source and building block for proteins. They support the body both before and after sport by preventing the breakdown of the body's own protein and promoting muscle growth.
Athletes often have an increased need for amino acids, which is why BCAAs are a good supplement. Because of their functions, they are particularly popular in strength and endurance sports.
Our product delivers 5000 mg BCAA per daily dose and also contains essential vitamins and trace elements which support the function of the amino acids and thus training.
By interacting with insulin, chromium not only contributes to maintaining blood sugar levels during training. It also enables the absorption of free amino acids into the muscles.
Zinc has an important role in the metabolism of proteins. In addition, it supports the function of the immune system, which is particularly stressed during physical exertion.
The B vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6 are involved, among other things, in the transport and usability of food components such as proteins and thus enable the BCAAs to be utilized in the body.
