What Are Branched Chain Amino Acids?

Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. These nutrients are usually obtained through protein-rich foods. While they are a popular supplement for athletes and exercise enthusiasts, their muscle-support benefits can be had by anyone.

There are a variety of amino acids, but only leucine, isoleucine and valine are called “branched chain amino acids.”

Branched Chain Amino Acids Benefits

  • Supports protein synthesis in muscle & liver
  • Enhances exercise performance & recovery
  • Encourages healthy brain function & immunity

Branched Chain Amino Acids

For Fitness and Beyond

The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) valine, leucine and isoleucine are essential nutrients that your body usually gets by digesting protein-rich foods such as meat, dairy and legumes. BCAAs encourage protein synthesis in skeletal muscle and the liver, promote muscle function, support exercise performance and muscle recovery and support healthy brain and immune function.

Promotes muscle strength, endurance and recovery

BCAAs are used by athletes for a reason: Research shows that BCAAs help to both maintain and build muscle strength and endurance, support physical performance and brain function and promote muscle recovery.1,2 But it is important to note that BCAA supplementation can be advantageous for anyone — not just strength or endurance athletes.
