Did you know that every action you take, including thinking, requires energy and excursion. Whether you get out of bed in the morning and walk to the kitchen and drink a glass of water, lift weights, or engage in manual labor in the great outdoors. Each of these activities, and a multitude of others will tax your bodies resources to get the job done.

When it comes to sports and exercise, the body is forced to dig a lot deeper into its reserves to fuel a workout or movement. Depending upon the amount of excursion required will determine the duration of your recovery. If you lift heavy weights intensely, it may take your energy reserves and muscles days to recover entirely. So, the question begs, what can we provide our bodies that will help them repair and recover quicker, and what is a safest, and of course, most legal option?

BCAA’s (Branch Chain Amino Acids) is a term used to describe essential amino acids. These are valine, leucine, and isoleucine. But before we delve into the topic of BCAA’s and how they help anyone recuperate from exercise or day-to-day-living, let’s define the amino acid.


Amino acids are molecules that combine within the body to form proteins. If you are not aware, amino acids and proteins are the building blocks of life. Without them, we would simply cease to exist. When proteins are digested in the body, amino acids become their result. The body then uses amino acids to make proteins to help the body break down food.

Amino Acids are metabolized by the body and used as a source of muscle energy. The reason they are referred to as, “Branch Chain Amino Acids” is due to their molecular structure and the fact that they include branches.

BCAA’s can be found in food sources such as meat, legumes (beans, lentils), and dairy. The BCAA’s stimulate the building of protein in muscle, hence, they are vitally important to anyone who works out or plays sports regularly. During activities such as weight lifting and sports, muscle tissue is taxed and broken down extensively. BCAA’s have been more recently identified as very important to muscle, since they are found in large quantities specifically within muscle protein.

So, now you are more familiar with what an amino acid and BCCA’s are, and how they are important to your recovery, and muscle building goals. The beauty of these supplements is that they are legal, and are amply available.
