4 study proven benefits of taking BCAA’s / EAA's if you are training…

Fights Physical and Mental Fatigue

When BCAAs enter your system they are taken in rapidly by the muscles providing another energy source during workouts. Not only do they fight physical fatigue but they also block the amino acid tryptophan from accessing the brain… tryptophan is a precursor for serotonin which makes you feel relaxed or sleepy.

Reduce Soreness

Studies have shown that taking BCAA’s prior to your workout reduces the severity and length of soreness the days following a workout. (Link to Study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7810616)

Promotes Muscle Growth

3 grams of leucine, one of the amino acids found in our BCAAs, is responsible for maximally stimulating muscle protein synthesis. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28638350)

Prevent Muscle breakdown

Studies have repeatedly shown that supplementing BCAAs inhibits muscle protein breakdown. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2267397/)
