WHAT ARE BCAA'S

Amino Acids are often described as the “building blocks” of protein, and although there are 20 in total that your body needs to help build and repair muscle, nine of them cannot be produced by the body – these are considered the essential amino acids, and must be obtained from diet .

Three of those nine are the Branched Chain Amino Acids (or BCAA’s) which have a different structure to other essential amino acids, allowing them to be oxidised directly by skeletal muscle and used as energy during training.

Our Whey Protein contains all essential amino acids, with 8.9g of BCAA’s (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine), helping you maintain peak performance by alleviating muscle fatigue and soreness.

WHAT DO BCAA'S DO?

BCAA's are essential in the synthesis of protein, and support your body in being able to both grow new muscle, and to repair and renew existing muscle. They are also crucial in preventing the breakdown of muscle tissue, and reducing muscle soreness post-workout.

Taking BCAA'S pre-workout can also help you to boost your performance, by providing more energy and delaying fatigue, helping you to increase the intensity and duration of your workout.
