Why You Should be Taking BCAAs

Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) are known for increasing muscle growth, reducing physical and mental fatigue, speeding up recovery time, and decreasing muscle soreness after a workout. Of the 20 amino acids that form the thousands of proteins in our bodies, nine are considered essential, and of those nine, three are considered BCAAs - leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These are found in high-protein foods, and have the distinction that our bodies cannot produce them on their own. For this reason, we offer a BCAA supplement that combines leucine, isoleucine, and valine with Cluster Dextrin to boost energy and endurance while optimizing performance.

BCAAs are every athlete's best friend. Here are three reasons you should consider taking them right now:

Helps Build Muscle

BCAAs support muscle metabolism and build muscle tissue protein. Leucine alone is responsible for lean tissue growth and reducing excess nitrogen from the liver (it supports liver health as well). It boosts muscle mass, improves athletic performance, and can also slow down muscle deterioration. A major proponent in muscle synthesis, it prompts muscle growth and ensures you get the most out of your workout.

Aids in Weight Loss

BCAAs aid in the building of muscle, reduce fatigue, and improve endurance leading to longer, harder, more effective training sessions. This combination improves metabolism, and helps burn unwanted fat, keeping you healthy and supporting your weight loss goals. During an intense session your muscles need to access additional fuel once the glucose in your muscles have been exhausted, and with BCAAs the tissue in your muscle is guarded against being damaged, forcing your body to burn fat instead of potentially tearing muscle tissue.

Increases Endurance and Reduces Fatigue

BCAAs break down glucose effortlessly, regulating blood sugar and energy levels, using extra glucose to boost energy when needed. This improves endurance, reduces fatigue, and helps maximize your workouts. The addition of Cluster Dextrin adds an extra boost of energy, as it is absorbed slowly allowing your body to use fats to fuel itself throughout your workout or entire day.

BCAAs are every athlete’s best friend for a reason. The consistent energy supply, the reduced muscle soreness, the boost in endurance, the burning of fat, mental clarity, and diminished fatigue guarantee the best workout experience for every training level. JBN’s BCAA formula is a notch above the rest, with added Cluster Dextrin to the perfect dose of leucine, isoleucine, and valine to optimize your experience.
