Branched chain amino acids

Valine, isoleucine and leucine form the group of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). They are essential (EAA) are therefore not formed by the body itself and must therefore be supplied through food.

Known as BCAAs, branched-chain amino acids are a popular dietary supplement in strength and endurance sports. Supplementation is expected to help build muscle and counteract fatigue after exercise (muscle soreness) and in endurance disciplines. The benefits have not yet been scientifically proven.
