BCAA (branched-chain amino acid) dietary supplement, otherwise branched-chain L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine, accounts for around 35 % of all the amino acids that make up muscle tissue. It is an irreplaceable essential amino acid (occurring most in dairy products and red meat; however, there is not usually enough here for sportsmen and women when they have a normal diet). The body is unable to produce it itself and the energy supplies created by glycogen are exhausted during demanding activity, considerable physical strain or exacting sporting activity. The body begins creating energy from the branched-chain amino acids occurring in the musculature and they are burned up more. In order to avoid any negative phenomena (decrease in musculature, slow regeneration), it is a good idea to supplement BCAA in larger amounts before and after demanding physical activity.

BCAA help the quality and quantity of muscle tissue, strength and performance. They also delay muscle pain during exertion and help the subsequent regeneration of the musculature thereafter. They take part in the process of forming new muscle mass and influence the protection of muscle mass during physical exertion and slimming/weight loss. BCAA intake is suitable for people faced with physical exertion, sportsmen and women and people with an insufficient protein intake. Regular intake is also useful in reduction diets, when excess weight is reduced using a combination of increased physical activity and a reduction in food intake. BCAA prevent the musculature from disintegration at this time. Sportsmen and women that train a lot usually use 5 g of L-leucine, 4 g of L-valine and 2 g of L-isoleucine a day. If you are less active than this, you can adjust the daily intake of BCAA as required.
