The Importance of BCAAs in Recovery

Bcaa blog post

Strenuous workouts can lead to sore muscles, lingering pain, and even damage to our bodies. We work out so that we can improve our health, but if we’re not taking care of both the inside and outside of our bodies, we could be doing long-term damage.

Did you know that there are 20 different amino acids that make up the many thousands of proteins in our bodies? That’s why amino acids are vital for muscle growth and for our overall health.

Branched-chain amino acids—or BCAAs—are three of the nine essential amino acids that our bodies need. These branched-chain amino acids—so named because of their branched molecular structure—are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Leucine is essential for protein synthesis. It helps with muscle growth, and it repairs and helps regulate blood sugar. Isoleucine helps in wound healing and stimulates the body’s immune function. Valine helps in energy production and the prevention of the breakdown of muscle. We need these if we want to recover properly from our workouts.

Unfortunately, our bodies cannot make these essential amino acids, so we must get them from our diets. Foods such as meat, eggs, nuts, fish, dairy, and legumes all contain these essential nutrients. But even diet is sometimes not enough to give our body what it needs. That’s why Performance Inspired created a BCAA powder with electrolytes.

PI’s post-workout BCAA helps improve your overall health. Not only is our BCAA the best tasting on the market, but it’s made with only natural products. Plus, we added extras to give you the best product possible. Along with the addition of electrolytes, we added 5g of L-glutamine—an important element for muscle recovery and lean mass growth. And we added 500mg of taurine for metabolic support, muscle strength, and endurance.

Did you know that you can damage your body when you don’t allow it to rest and heal after a workout? Allowing your body time to heal, and then building it up with essential nutrients, aids in muscle growth and facilitates the healing of tiny muscle tears that come as a result of strenuous workouts.

When you take our BCAA supplement after a workout, it not only helps with recovery, but it helps reduce fatigue and improves endurance as well. Another benefit is that it may help the liver. A 2011 study of people with liver disease found that “BCAAs may also help improve how people with liver diseases are able to process proteins. Liver disease can disrupt how the body metabolizes proteins, often leading to a protein deficiency. . . . BCAA supplementation improves the prognosis and quality of life in patients with liver cirrhosis.”

BCAAs are vital to so many aspects of our health and recovery. So we encourage you to try our BCAA powder. It comes in two delicious flavors: Berry Fruit Blast and Tropical Mango Delight. As with all our products, the BCAA contains no artificial sweeteners, colors, or flavors. We use only natural ingredients that are good for you and that taste great. Plus, our BCAA powder is stimulant-free, so you can drink it anytime and not feel jittery.

Adding BCAAs into your diet is integral for continued health and for recovery after a workout. Your body will thank you, and you will feel great!
