MUS­CLE BUILD­ING

Muscle & Performance - - Breakdown -

Mus­cle tis­sue is made of pro­tein, and pro­tein is made up of amino acids. There­fore, it should come as no sur­prise that mus­cle growth is es­sen­tially just the process of com­bin­ing amino acids. How­ever, BCAAS take their role in mus­cle build­ing one step fur­ther. Re­search has shown that BCAAS, and par­tic­u­larly leucine, in­crease mus­cle growth by di­rectly stim­u­lat­ing mus­cle pro­tein syn­the­sis. Leucine acts al­most like a key that sig­nals the body to be­gin string­ing amino acids to­gether to cre­ate mus­cle pro­tein. There­fore, sup­ple­ment­ing with BCAAS can help boost your ef­forts in the gym and help you see re­sults. If your goal is to build mus­cle, take BCAAS dur­ing and/or af­ter your work­out.*†
