BCAA consists of three essential amino acids from a degraded chain (leucine, isoleucine and valine).
They are essential because the body can’t create them, so it is necessary to import them through your diet or supplements.
It is important to import them because they present 40% of the body’s daily requirement of the 9 essential amino acids.
The biggest amount of BCAA in food is found in: chicken, beef, eggs and whey protein. But they can also be used as supplements from which athletes have a great benefit, because these amino acids, in addition, have a free form that passes the liver and stomach and goes straight into the blood.
BCAAs are well known for stimulating protein synthesis. BCAA supplementation followed by weight training results in maximum protein synthesis, as this combination doubles (mTORC1-kinase that regulates the key functions of cells associated with the promotion of cell growth and metabolism) which is essential for muscle growth.
Also, BCAA supplementation results in increased loss of body fat and regulation of glucose tolerance.
Isoleucine improves the glucose tolerance while leucine increases energy consumption and fat oxidation. Increased fat mobilization allows more flexible metabolism, which increases fat loss.
BCAAs act most impressive in reducing fatigue and increasing endurance in extensive workouts. They increase performance through two mechanisms.
The first is the ability to be used as energy and maintain the level of ATP energy in workouts which reduce the level of glycogen in the muscles.
The second one acts preventively in the exhaustion of the central nervous system by inhibiting the uptake of tryptophan in the brain.
Tryptophan is used by the brain to produce serotonin, which is responsible for the feeling of fatigue and exhaustion.
With this we can conclude that BCAA supplementation plays a major role in people who are in caloric deficiency because with the increase of protein synthesis in the muscles they will be able to prevent loss of muscle mass and also have the benefit of increased energy and easier melting of body fat.
