*Branched chain amino acids 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.
Uses For BCAAs
What Is It?
The branched chain amino acids (Pure Encapsulations 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
Promotes Healthy Muscle Mass: 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?
Isoleucine and valine are produced from corn dextrose fermentation. Leucine is originally extracted from protein and is extensively processed and purified.
