BCAAs: the branched amino acids, combine the three essential amino acids valine, leucine and isoleucine.
The BCAA are one third of the muscle proteins and our body is not able to produce them, they can only be introduced with the diet.
How do I use them?
They can be used before, during and immediately after training to protect muscle integrity:
- 45 minutes before, tablets or powder
- During: as energy gel, in addition to maltodextrins
- Immediately after: powder to speed up recovery
