Amino acids - BCAA

The amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine are very popular nutritional supplements as BCAA (Branched-Chain Amino Acids) . Because they are essential, i.e. cannot be produced independently by the organism, a daily intake through the diet is necessary. The effects of BCAAs are varied and positive - especially when building muscle.

The triad of proper nutrition

Optimal training, the right nutrition and sufficient regeneration phases are the three cornerstones of successful muscle building. New muscles are built up when the rate of muscle protein synthesis is higher than the rate of muscle breakdown, ie the "destruction" of certain muscle layers. Hard resistance training boosts muscle protein synthesis. If the exercises are carried out, the muscle cells experience trauma and are injured.

The degree of injury achieved enables satellite cells on the outside of the muscle fibers to be activated. The satellite cells then repair the damage during the regeneration phases by joining the cracks: the volume of the muscle cells increases and the muscle fibers become thicker. This can increase muscle mass. As a result of the training, certain growth hormones are released, which build proteins from the available amino acids and force muscle building. It is therefore important to train hard in a balanced triad and to give the amino acids in the regeneration phase the opportunity to build new muscle mass.

The entire amino acid spectrum should work for this. The amino acids relevant for the organism are the so-called L-amino acids from the pool of twenty proteinogenic amino acids. The three branched chain amino acids isoleucine, leucine and valine are of particular importance. There are three from the group of essential amino acids: the BCAAs.

How BCAA works

BCAAs have a special property: in contrast to the other amino acids, they are not processed in the liver within the metabolism. Rather, they are mostly used directly in the skeletal muscles. The direct availability is the big plus of the BCAAs.

BCAAs support protein synthesis for the targeted build-up and maintenance of muscles and also the reduction of body fat. In diet phases, they ensure the maintenance of existing muscle mass, while body fat can be reduced in a targeted manner. In addition, studies assign BCAAs balancing effects on blood sugar levels , active support for healthy brain functions and positive mental moods. All advantages ensure that BCAAs are growing in popularity. The support of new formation and the maintenance of muscles make them so valuable as supplements.

Use and dosage of the BCAA

A balanced, healthy and protein-rich diet is the be-all and end-all - the positive results are effectively supported by the supplementation of BCAAs. Taking BCAAs at the beginning of the day can immediately suppress feelings of hunger immediately after getting up or shortly before the start of a training session. Because many never like to exercise with a full stomach. This has the advantage that the body does not have to spend energy on digestive processes. All the strength is available for the training. BCAAs are particularly useful during long training sessions, especially since cardio sessions are often followed by demanding strength training sessions.

After the end of the training, supplementation makes sense anyway. Because the BCAAs generate an optimized protein synthesis, i.e. safely supply the muscle tissue with growth components, the organism does not have to be confronted with an additional calorie intake inevitably. BCAAs also support good physical regeneration. A daily dose of around 5 grams of BCAA is recommended.
