There are 20 amino acids out of which 9 as essential i.e. they are not produced by the body and have to be supplied through diet or supplements. Out of these 9 essential amino acids, 3 are branched chain amino acids (BCAA) namely leucine, isoleucine and valine. 35% of body’s muscle protein is BCAA. It is not only required to build protein but also preserves muscle glycogen stores. As a result, this fuels the muscles and reduces the protein breakdown during workout. Thus, it adds on to more energy, exercise repetitions and consecutive better results. Taking about an athlete or post workout, BCAA’s if taken along with good carbohydrates, results in increased muscle protein recovery. A typical daily dose includes 39 mg of leucine, 26 mg of valine and 20 mg of isoleucine per kg body weight. Since, Leucine helps in protein synthesis, it’s found in a higher ratio in supplements than the other branched chain amino acids. Isoleucine helps in glucose uptake by cells. Food sources of leucine include brown rice, whole wheat products; seeds and nuts like almonds, cashews are a rich source of isoleucine and milk, curd cottage cheese, mushrooms & peanuts are packed with isoleucine. BCAA supplements can be consumed before, during and after exercise. BCAA supplementation is useful if the dietary intakes of protein are very poor. Other benefits of BCAA include
