Amino acids are crucial building blocks for proteins in the body, which are important in muscle performance and recovery. Making up 3 of the 9 essential amino acids are the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs): Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.
BCAAs can promote muscle protein synthesis, which is the process of growing muscle. Whilst also being shown to reduce protein degradation.
BCAA Capsules provide 4g of Branched Chain Amino Acids in a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. Packed into a convenient capsule format, these can be taken pre, during or post workout or anytime throughout the day.
MORE ABOUT THE SCIENCE
Increase muscle growth
The branched chain amino acid, leucine, is responsible for making muscle, by activating a pathway that stimulates protein synthesis.
Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is thought to be caused by tiny tears in the muscle caused by exercise. Studies have shown BCAAs are able to reduce protein breakdown during exercise, and therefore reduce the length and severity of DOMS.
Prevent muscle breakdown
Muscle degradation occurs when protein breakdown exceeds muscle protein synthesis. Because BCAAs account for 35% of the essential amino acids found in muscle proteins, it’s important that the BCAAs and other essential amino acids are replaced during times of muscle wasting to halt it or to slow its progression.

WHAT ARE BCAAS?
BCAAs consist of 3 essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. They’re classed as essential as your body cannot make them. The main purpose of BCAAs is as building blocks for your body to use to make proteins.
WHAT ARE THE KEY BENEFITS OF BCAA?
Studies have shown BCAA to help build muscle, decrease muscle fatigue and alleviate muscle soreness.
WHY TAKE A TABLET OVER A POWDER?
It’s a quick and convenient option to take either pre or post workout, or when you’re on the go.
IS IT INFORMED SPORT TESTED?
Yes, as per all of our products, Science in Sport Performance Multivitamin is tested under the Informed Sport programme.
