Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine.*
These amino acids are grouped together because they are the only three amino acid to have a chain that branches off to one side.*
BCAAs make up a large chunk of the body's total amino acid pool.*
Together, they represent around 35–40% of all essential amino acids present in your body and 14–18% of those found in your muscles.*
Your body can use BCAAs to build muscle protein and produce energy. They may also have an effect on your brain that reduces fatigue.*
BCAA supplements are commonly taken in order to boost muscle growth and enhance exercise performance. They may also help with weight loss and reduce fatigue after exercise.*
