Branch Chain Aminos
The BCAAs (leucine, valine and isoleucine) are perhaps the three most important of the essential amino acids. As a supplement, taking BCAAs has been shown to prevent or decrease muscle proteolysis or breakdown. Also, recent research has shown that leucine is an essential element in promoting muscle protein synthesis. BCAAs have long been used by bodybuilders to help enhance muscle growth and are considered an important part of any intense training program.
