Branched Chain Amino Acids

The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) L-valine, L-leucine, and L-isoleucine enhance protein synthesis in liver cells and muscle cells. This combination helps improve mental and physical performance. Because they can be oxidized in the cell’s mitochondria, the branched chain amino acids may also provide energy and may serve as fuel sources for skeletal muscles during periods of metabolic stress 

Benefits:

  • Increasing Engery
  • May Help Increase Workout Intensity
  • Helps Maintain Muscle Mass

 

Suggested use: To be used by adults 18 years and older. Take four (4) capsules daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.

Asked on: May 29, 2013
Question: Do you need these amino acids if you are taking ppq?
  • A: Branched Chain amino acids may be good for a number of things such as the liver and the muscles.  Because L-valineL-leucine, and L-isoleucine can be oxidized in the cell’s mitochondria, the branched chainamino acids may also provide energy and may serve as fuel sources for skeletal muscles during periods of metabolic stress.61-66 As a result, BCAAs have been used with success to support liver function.67-72 A study in 2008 also showed BCAAs supplementation improved insulin resistance and beta cell function as well as energy metabolism and glucose tolerance in certain people.73,74 They are also used by athletes.61,75-82 A current mouse study showed restoring hippocampal BCAA concentrations to normal had the effect of reinstating normal brain function by helping the synapses to function efficiently.  You may want to discuss with your physician if this supplement is needed if you are taking ppq as they can best advise.
