BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids) are three essential amino acids—leucine, isoleucine and valine—that work together synergistically. BCAAs are classified as “essential” amino acids because the human body cannot make them and they must, therefore, be supplied through diet and/or supplementation. BCAAs are essential for human health and account for 35% of the essential amino acids in muscle proteins. They are also the most abundant essential amino acids in the human body. Research has shown they are important for the maintenance of good health, increase muscle protein synthesis and promote muscle recovery following exercise. BCAAs are the most sought-after amino acids for performance and active lifestyles, as they also act as an energy source.
