Where is the BCAA needed?
35% of muscle is made up of BCAAs, so it is understandable that amino acids are essential for building muscle. Even after a few minutes of exercise, the body’s functional amino acid pool (“pool”) can be found to be deficient in these BCAAs, especially L-leucine. Failure to correct this deficiency or too late will prevent or delay the desired muscle growth.
The amino acids of BCAA
Effects on the immune system
The first thing to notice when taking BCAAsupplementation is a healthy immune system. Every time spent in the gym is a huge stress for the body. If the body is unable to tolerate this, problems such as slowing regeneration and a weakened immune system will soon appear, making it more common.
Because essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body, a deficiency in them can affect the immune system. Consumed before and after workouts (because training, as we wrote earlier, is an extreme stress on the body) contributes to maintaining a healthy immune system.
The popularity of BCAA amino acids is growing steadily among strong athletes and there is a keen interest in research into their effects. Its 3 amino acids, leucine, isoleucine and valine, have been shown to be effective in both the weight gain phase and fiberization. The best results were obtained with high doses. It is not uncommon for athletes to consume up to 20-30 grams or more per day to reach their goal.
How does the BCAA supplement work and why does it work so well?
Leucine regulates protein synthesis by keeping the protein in usable form. It prevents the body from using protein as an energy source. At the same time, it helps the body use glucose as a fuel. Incidentally, all three amino acids play an important role in protein synthesis.
When used during training, it acts as an insulin mimic. Insulin is an extremely anabolic hormone and is very useful in building muscle. Growth hormone production is also increased by BCAA supplementation during exercise. An increase in these hormones keeps the body in an anti-catabolic state, meaning that there will be no loss of muscle mass during a hard workout, which is basically a completely normal process.
During the diet, BCAAs are a great source of energy. Used by all bodybuilders. It prevents muscle mass loss with low calorie intake. However, it encourages body fat to decrease.
Additional benefits include lowering cortisol levels, reducing muscle pain, and increasing strength.
