Product Information

Description

THE BIGGER PICTURE OF BRANCHED CHAIN AMINO ACIDS (BCAAs)
L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine are commonly grouped together and referred to as Branched Chain Amino Acids, or BCAAs, because of their unique branched chemical structure. BCAAs are essential, meaning that they must be consumed through the diet, since the human body cannot make them from other compounds. BCAAs have long been used by strength-training and endurance athletes alike to activate muscle synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown caused by intense training.

It really works.
I started taking these about two weeks ago and I wish that I had been taking them years ago. I am now doing workouts with ease that a month ago would have figuratively killed me with no soreness afterwards. A couple of words of caution though. Don't take them after about 6 p.m. unless you are going to do a workout because they will keep you awake all night. If you workout then no problem. The other issue is that you need to take a good quality daily multivitamin because BCAA's will deplete your B vitamins. Otherwise I have not been able to find any negatives to them. This brand is particularly helpful if you are an older adult because of the 50% amount of Leucine.
