Product Description
  • Supports protein synthesis and muscle recovery
  • Featuring L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine
  • Pharmaceutical grade branched-chain amino acids

NOW Foods Branched-Chain Amino Acid Powder delivers L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine to promote muscle strength and recovery.

Of the eight essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the body, the three branched-chain aminos leucine, isoleucine and valine are of key importance. Based on their unique structure, activity, storage and metabolism, BCAAs have become a staple in the lives of many athletes and physically active individuals. They account for nearly 1/3 of the amino acids in muscle protein, and play a number of key roles in the growth of muscle tissues.

Horrible flavor!

It tastes horrible! I’m not even sure I will be able to use it. It’s hard to mask the flavor.

Increases Rate & Capacity for Protein Synthesis

It's well established that branched chain amino acids (particularly leucine) stimulate protein synthesis, and might do so to a greater extent than a normal protein on its own. BCAAs also increase synthesis of the cellular machinery responsible for carrying out the process of protein synthesis. Thus, BCAAs not only increase the RATE of protein synthesis, but they also increase the cell's CAPACITY for protein synthesis! BCAAs also work in your favor by reducing the rate of protein breakdown. They do this (primarily) by decreasing the activity of the components of the protein breakdown pathway, and also by decreasing the expression of several complexes involved in protein breakdown
