Amino acids are the buzz in the health and fitness industry, and many people take them for various benefits. There are so many different options available with some being “essential” and some described as “branched chain.” What part do they play in the body and what benefits do they provide?
What are Amino Acids?
First, amino acids are organic compounds that serve as the building blocks for proteins. There are twenty amino acids that exist naturally. These compounds are made up of a central carbon atom, a hydrogen atom, an amino group, a carboxylic group, and an R-group or side chain.

What Are BCAAs?
BCAAs are branched chain amino acids that consist of three essential amino acids comprising nearly 1/3 of skeletal muscle in the body and play a major role in protein synthesis. Why are they essential? They are essential because the body cannot produce them and must get them from an outside source. BCAAs are metabolized in the muscles, have potent anabolic and tissue sparing qualities, decrease recovery time, and increase rate at which lean body mass is gained. Plus, they yield metabolic by-products that boost energy production. The 3 essential amino acids are L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine.
