The Benefits of BCAAs

 In Blog, Health, Muscle

There’s a lot of hype about BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) in the athletic and fitness world today. Bodybuilders and nutrition experts boast of BCAAs’ energy production and metabolic properties. Can the regular gym-goer benefit from these much-touted essential amino acids? Are the three BCAAs all the body needs to improve strength and endurance and get the most out your workouts?

 

What are BCAAs?

BCAAs consist of three amino acids—leucine, isoleucine, and valine. They activate protein synthesis and help prevent the breakdown of muscular tissue. The body cannot synthesize these essential building blocks; therefore, they must come from a food source.

BCAAs are widely used as an exercise recovery supplement because they help preserve muscle glycogen stores that fuel your muscles and minimize protein breakdown. Therefore, they can help anyone get the most of their gym sessions—especially those who practice high-intensity interval training and weight lifting.

 

Check out the additional ways BCAAs can help the daily gym-goer:

  • Curb hunger and improve metabolism
  • Reduce fatigue and increase endurance
  • Help increase fat loss
  • Help increase lean muscle mass
  • Reduce muscle soreness from physical exercise

 

BCAAs and general health…

With all of the performance-based attention on BCAAs, many are unaware of the general health benefits they provide. Several studies indicate that BCAAs can…

  • Improve kidney and liver function[i]
  • Help prevent heart failure[ii]
  • Improve insulin resistance[iii]

 

Are BCAAs all you need to help with recovery?

BCAAs undoubtedly contribute great benefits to the human body, but there is more to workout recovery than BCAAs. These mandatory amino acids are only part of the recovery picture.

The other six essential amino acids, for some reason, seem to have been forgotten in the world of fitness recovery. The truth is that your body needs all nine, every day, to be at its peak and to perform physically and complete basic body functions.

More and more daily exercisers are using supplements to feed their bodies the desired amount of nutrients. Wouldn’t it make sense to take a supplement that provides numerous nutrients along with ALL nine essential amino acids, which includes BCAAs?

A supplement such as Dead Sea Moringa, which contains 90 nutrients, 12 vitamins and minerals, 46 antioxidants, 18 amino acids, and a high concentration of all nine of the essential amino acids.

There are other companies on the market that make big claims, but it’s important to look at the contents of their supplements and their reputation before you buy. Do your research so you don’t spend unnecessary money, or worse, give your body useless or potentially harmful ingredients through supplementation.

Dead Sea Moringa plants the “Tree of Life” in the mineral-rich soil of the Dead Sea region. Combining the high mineral content of the Dead Sea with the nutrient-rich moringa plant provides the body with a powerful superfood.

Dead Sea Moringa is known for mental clarity, anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and weight loss.

Get the most out of your recovery and strengthen every aspect of your health. See for yourself how this superfood can supercharge your workouts today.
