BCAAS are classified separately from other amino acids. The three amino acids in this category are leucine, isoleucine and valine. They are the major amino acids that are oxidized or broken down in skeletal tissue during ATP production.
BCAA levels can increase the availability of carbohydrates and help protect the muscles from exercise-induced protein breakdown.
These amino acids can then be converted into glucose (gluconeogenesis), pyruvate or
even various intermediates to produce more ATP. Even though the output of ATP is not
high in regard to energy production in the muscles (3-18 %), it is another avenue for energy production that can be capitalized on.
BCAAS are unique partially because of their composition, but also because these amino acids are highly prominent in muscle tissue and can account for around fourteen to eighteen percent of its amino acid make-up.
For this reason, BCAAS are important for muscle protein synthesis.
BCAAS are metabolized differently than other amino acids, and can be oxidized in the muscles during exercise for energy. Having BCAAS in your diet may help support optimal muscle size, strength and performance.
