Amino Acids are the building blocks of proteins, aka, they’re what protein turns into when broken down in your body. When you consume any type of protein in your diet, your body will digest it and break it down into amino acids.
Without amino acids, your body won’t be able to function properly. They have many functions, like repairing and maintaining muscles, organs, nails, hair, skin, ligaments, connective tissues, glands, etc.
The three Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) are Leucine, Valine, and Iso-leucine. Together they make up one-third of muscle protein and are responsible for stressed muscles, promoting quick recovery, extra energy, and preventing muscles from breaking down and even fat loss.
