*Pure Encapsulations Branched chain amino acids (BCAA) provide safe
nutritional support for athletes and individuals seeking optimal lean
muscle mass. The three branched chain amino acids, leucine, isoleucine
and valine, boost energy while helping to counteract muscle protein
breakdown during exercise. In addition, the ingredients in this product
promote the biosynthesis of other amino acids, nucleotides, and
biological amines. Branched chain amino acids are unique in that they
are not metabolized by the liver. Pure Encapsulations BCAA promotes
healthy muscle mass by boosting energy metabolism in working muscle and
by inhibiting protein breakdown during exercise.
What Is It?
Pure Encapsulations branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
These essential amino acids provide nutritional support for athletes
and individuals seeking optimal lean muscle mass. Branched chain amino
acids are unique in that they are not metabolized by the liver.*
Uses For BCAAs
Healthy Muscle Mass: Pure Encapsulations BCAAs may play a role in athletic support by
promoting muscle nitrogen, enhancing alanine and glutamine production,
decreasing lactate production and boosting energy while attenuating
protein breakdown These actions help to sustain muscle work capacity and
recovery. Studies have reported that post-exercise protein intake helps
to enhance the repair of muscle protein. Additionally, some research
has suggested that BCAAs may moderate the progression of central nervous
system fatigue during exercise, supporting mental performance.*
What Is The Source?
and valine are produced from corn dextrose fermentation. Leucine is
originally extracted from protein and is extensively processed and
