1 ) What is BCAA?
Instantized BCAA powder is a blend of the three Branched Chain Amino Acids (L-Valine, L-Leucine, and L-Isoleucine) in every serving. The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's), so named because of their unique branched chemical structure, are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds.
2 ) How does it work?
BCAA aids quick muscle recovery and protein synthesis by supporting anti-catabolic activity that prevents muscle breakdown and also supporting anabolic activity that aids muscle building.
3 ) Why do I need BCAA?
BCAA is needed for quick muscle recovery and protein synthesis.
4 ) Does it have any side-effects?
Branched-chain amino acids are possibly safe when taken by mouth appropriately. Some side effects are known to occur, such as fatigue and loss of coordination. Branched-chain amino acids should be used cautiously before or during activities where performance depends on motor coordination, such as driving. Children (up to 6 months) and in case of certain conditions like pregnancy, breastfeeding, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease), branched-chain ketoaciduria, chronic alcoholism, surgery, or low blood sugar in infants need more precautions.
5 ) What is the best time to take BCAA?
It is best when taken pre-workout or intra-workout to increase performance and post-workout to enhance recovery.
6 ) How much BCAA do I need?
With BCAA's 4-8 grams before a workout and 4-8 grams after is optimal. Lesser amounts are effective but if increased performance and recovery are needed a higher dosage is more effective.
