So you’ve probably hit this page up because you are thinking hard about nutrition and supplements after all that’s what we’re here for. If you are looking to invest serious time in a weightlifting program you need to get your nutrition in order and take advantage of all the research through the years that help you to achieve your goals.
Now headlining that nutrition programme will be protein but i’m about to go through the reasons why you should consider BCAA’s as being part of that process.
BCAAs is the acronym for Branched Chain Amino Acids and these makeup around 1/3 of muscle protein. So with this being such a key factor its clear that in the list of supplements this needs to be near the top of the list for you to get achieving the results that you want.
BCAA – Protection for your immune system
Supplementing your diet with branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) is the vital help it will give you with supporting your immune system. Not the first thing that people think needs help when you want to go weightlifting, but consider the huge stresses that you will put on your body.
Having this supplement of BCAAs will support muscle recovery and improve your bodies ability during this recovery to protect you from illness.
BCAAs aren’t produced naturally by your body and are taken into your system through nutrition. If you fail to get these through your normal dietary plan you leave your body short of the building blocks it needs to maintain itself while you continue to stress it with load.
BCAA – Protect Against Amino Acid Deficiencies
Taking on a plan would mean that you will probably have some dietary restrictions and that can mean sticking to some key foods. Having this kind of food control can mean not having the right intake of amino acids. Having these will ensure you maintain the right amount of input needed for the key parts of muscle recovery as already mentioned.
BCAA – Supporting Protein Synthesis
BCAAs are thought to not only stimulate protein synthesis possibly to a greater extent that normal protein on its own, but they also support the body in carrying this out. So not only do they increase the rate of synthesis, but they also increase the cell’s capacity for the protein synthesis to take place. Sounds like a pretty good deal right?
BCAAs Reducing Protein Breakdown
Protein breakdown is the battle we are working against while pushing our body through the barriers to build more muscle. BCAAs work to reduce this too. By decreasing the activity of components in the protein breakdown pathway, combined with decreasing the expression of several complexes involved in the breakdown of protein.
BCAAs can also help with the perception of fatigue, when you are exercising your body produces serotonin and when this rises this is what gives the message to your brain of fatigue.
If you are motivated and working i think this will undoubtedly allow you push harder for longer in a workout and therefore achieve more in the same workout than without these amino acids.
