Branch Chained Amino Acids BCAA

Amino acids come from protein rich sources such as meat, fish, dairy products, and vegetables such as legumes, peas, and grains.  And you probably already know that amino acids are the building blocks of protein and absolutely essential for the human body to function optimally (i.e., normalizing moods, concentration, aggression, attention, and sleep). 
Bodybuilders, elite athletes, sports enthusiasts and week-end warriors can ALL benefit from supplementing amino acids because they aid in the repair, growth, and development of muscle tissue.

What do they do and what are they?
When we consume protein, it is broken down by the stomach and intestines into individual amino acids and short chains amino acids and transported around the body by our blood.  These individual amino acids have far reaching effects in the body from building tissues, to producing chemicals that enable the brain to function optimally.

There are two types of amino acids:
Essential and Non-Essential. 
Essential amino acids cannot be made by the body, so they must be obtained by eating complete protein foods or a combinatioon of incomplete vegetable foods.   
Non-essential are in fact essential to the body even though the name implies otherewise and all are required for proper metabolism.

9 Essential Amino Acids                         13 Non-Essential Amino Acids
Histidine                                                     Alanine
Isoleucine                                                  Arginine
Leucine                                                     Aspartate
Lysine                                                       Cysteine
Methionine                                                Cystine
Phenylalanine                                           Glutamate             
Trytophan                                                 Glutamine
Threonine                                                 Glycine 
Valine                                                       Hydroxyproline
So, during intense weight training the body is normally in a highly catabolic condition.  At this time glycogen stores are being rapidly depleted and the liver in turn must synthesize glucose by a conversion of L-Alanine.  Alanine along with Glutamine make up over half of the amino acid content released from muscles during exercise.  Glutamine is released from the muscles not only from free form amino acid stores but also through deamination of the BCAAs within the muscles themselves. The release of Glutamine is generally recognized as the signal to the body to stop protein syntheses in the muscles, especially during times of stress.  Providing Glutamine and the BCAAs, especially during those times of stress may profoundly affect this signal and allow protein synthesis to continue onward.  Following intense weight training the proper recovery process requires an abundance of the specific amino acids which are most affected by training, ie: the Glutamine and BCAAs.

Muscle soreness is felt in the days following your gruelling workouts (a sign that you have put in the effort).  So, if heavy training stimulates muscle growth and at the same time causes muscle breakdown and catabolism.  What do we have to do to maintain positive nitrogen status throughout our training?  The answer is no secret, scientists have known for many years the powerful anabolic effects of BCAAs.  BCAA have the capability to independently stimulate protein synthesis within muscles and crerate an anabolic environment during intense training that reduces muscle soreness in the days following your workout and therefore speed recovery - utmost importance to all athletes.
