Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are critical for muscle protein synthesis.* Because BCAAs can be used as fuel during exercise, BCAA supplementation can help to preserve existing muscle tissue, so athletes should take before and after exercise.* Easy-to-swallow capsules are convenient before workouts or add BCAA powder to post-workout recovery smoothies*. BCAA Big 6 flavored powders are perfect for mixing up a sports drink for during workouts.
BCAAs are added to many protein powders thanks to their ability to stimulate protein synthesis as well as optimizing the capacity of cells to synthesize protein.* Utilize standalone BCAA products to create your own supplement stack or maximize targeted intake for superior sports nutrition.
