I’d really appreciate it and would be great to have your support. Alright, so with housekeeping and shameless pitch out of the way, let’s get to the BCAA benefits… Benefit #1 BCAA supplementation prior to exercise seems to reduce delayed-onset muscle soreness (also known as DOMS) and muscle fatigue. Benefit #2 Taking BCAAs during restrictive diets, cutting phases or intermittent fasting appears to reduce the risk of muscle loss. Benefit #3 Supplementing with BCAAs during a workout may reduce fatigue. Exercise-induced depletion of BCAAs may also contribute to central fatigue by allowing more tryptophan to cross the blood brain barrier. By elevating BCAAs levels, less tryptophan can cross over, which reduces fatigue. Benefit #4 Supplementing with BCAAs can reduce the breakdown of skeletal muscle during exercise. Benefit #5 The branched amino acid Leucine serves an important function as an initiator of muscle protein synthesis. This underscores the need for an adequate supply of leucine and other essential amino acids to capitalize on the effects of exercise on muscle growth. Benefit #6 It’s been estimated that BCAAs account for 35%–40% of the essential amino acids in body proteins and make up about 14% of skeletal muscle. In addition, BCAAs are needed for the synthesis of the non-essential amino acids. As a result an adequate supply of dietary BCAAs is necessary to maintain basic physiological processes essential to general health and well-being. Benefit #7 BCAAs can even be used to treat some illnesses. Some examples are anorexia, poor brain function related to liver disease and a movement disorder called tardive dys-kinesia.

    I use 10grams bcaa preworkout combined with citruline Malate and since doing this for the past 3 weeks I’ve definitely noticed a bit more energy in my workouts and a lot less soreness especially in my legs! I’ve heard a lot of people saying there a waste of money and that there a scam! But I find them very beneficial and definitely works for me! πŸ™‚

      Im in my 50s and Ive been taking the same supplements together for 5mo now. I work out in the gym and do Jiu Jitsu. I have noticed I don’t have the soreness anymore. I recover quickly. I take bcaa 10g, citrulline 3g, I can definitely feel a difference on performance and recovery. I also take createn 5g, Arginine 6g, and glutamine 5g. Maybe not for everyone but bcaa work for me

    • UltimateFatBurner.com says:

      The reality is many relatively safe and helpful supplements can have side effects – when taken in large doses, or by individuals with sensitivities. That’s true for ALL sorts of supplements, herbal remedies and even WATER.

  2. Ahmed Tokhi says:

    Hello, am 15 and I am around 76 Kgs and 170 cm and now am going to the gym to lose weight and the same time to build muscle. My question is, is ok for me to take bcaa???

    • UltimateFatBurner.com says:

      Ahmed, generally supplements aren’t recommended for anyone under the age of 18. Plus, your goals of building muscle (which requires a caloric surplus) and losing weight (which requires a caloric deficit) is extremely difficult to do (which is why bodybuilders have “mass” and “cutting” phases). My recommendation is to choose one or the other.

  3. Jackson says:

    Paul, I love your work here. Do you take a BCAA supplement yourself? I have noticed that all the benefits listed for non-pathology benefits are proceeded the the word “maybe”. In other words, the jury is still out.

    • UltimateFatBurner.com says:

      Jackson, thanks for the kudos. I do my best. πŸ™‚ I am currently using Isatori’s Amino Gro and I like it, but I have also used (and like) Scivation’s Xtend and Allmax’s AminoCore. Pretty much any of those are fine. Yep, on the “may.” I always use clinical references to support the statements in my videos, but 1 or 2 studies does not constitute absolute proof, hence the “may.” I don’t want to mislead anyone. No false promises from this guy. πŸ™‚

    • UltimateFatBurner.com says:

      The clinical data I reference to present these benefits refers to taking BCAAs on their own, not in combination with other aminos. Of course if your diet is halfway decent, most other essential and non essential aminos will be present already. I can’t imagine it’s likely that BCAAs are ever really consumed in isolation if you consider the aminos present in the diet…

    • Travis Williams says:

      UltimateFatBurner.com given the fact that BCAAs are being put in isolation in every supplement possible the distinction should be made. BCAAs taken on their own do not function as the supplement industry advertises.
