Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are an extremely popular product as this supplement is known to build muscle growth as well as increase exercise performance. The importance of BCAA’s for muscle recovery has been confirmed time and time again, but did you know that this supplement found in dietary protein, such as meat or eggs, also offers additional health benefits not just to athletes and those looking for muscle growth? Let’s look a 5 ways to benefit from BCAAs.

1. Fat Burning

BCAAs increase fat burning, as it contains Leucine, and glucose tolerance, thanks to Isoleucine. It helps those looking for a leaner body composition as increasing BCAA intake has an immediate impact of the amount of fat loss during training periods and exercise.

2. Reduce Soreness

BCAAs preserve the integrity of muscle fibers, decreasing muscle soreness. Of course this is often a primary target for athletes but it can also help anyone with muscle soreness. From muscle pain from work or extra physical activities to promoting muscle recovery for weekend warriors or those who wish to decrease their recovery time and soreness after endurance exercise, such as running or cycling, anyone can benefit from BCAAs.

3. Regulate Immunity

BCAA supplements can help regulate the immune system. This may be particularly helpful in avoiding illness, as immune function can be weakened after intense or prolonged exercise.

4. Anti-Aging

BCAAs have anti-aging properties and have been used in cancer and liver disease treatment strategies. They increase the formation of new mitochondria and thus reduce age related muscle loss.

5. Risk of Diabetes

BCAAs improves insulin health and metabolic rate for an advantageous body composition. Insulin sensitivity may also reduce the risk of diabetes.
