If you are serious about your fitness you might consider BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) as your personal activity and recovery support crew. Taken before, during, or after a workout, a BCAA supplement may be able to protect you from muscle breakdown and kick start the recovery process
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are now one of the most popular supplements around, earning a place in millions of homes and gyms, worldwide. Numerous studies show a direct link between BCAA intake and improved strength and recovery, fuelling sales growth which shows no sign of slowing.
BCAAs are beneficial for athletes, individuals engaged in high volume or prolonged exercise, those on restrictive diets who may not get enough from whole food sources, or for anyone otherwise at risk of lean tissue breakdown.
Why do we need to supplement amino acids and are they specifically for fitness fanatics?
The human body does not produce the amino acids Leucine, isoleucine or valine contained in TransChem’s fast-dissolving BCAA products. BCAAs account for more than 1/3 of our body muscle mass. These amino acids are not manufactured by our bodies and must be ingested, TransChem can supply them as a plant-based, high quality, organic and ethically sourced supplements with broader application.
The development of flavours and tastes makes the product appealing to functional foods as well as sports supplements. The faster dissolving product means quick blood absorption to boost exercise which also activates protein synthesis and boosts metabolism.
To counteract the punishing you’ve given yourself in the gym, on the running track or around the road circuit on your bike, BCAAs can be beneficial in providing energy fuel enabling you to exercise for longer as well as supporting a rapid recovery.
Importantly, BCAA’s can also be incorporated into functional foods. Recent media coverage on the cognitive health benefits of incorporating weight lifting in daily exercise regimes points to the broad benefits of ongoing muscle development and maintenance across all age groups. Increasing research and knowledge of the correlation between “food and mood” means daily exercise and muscle mass, and therefore amino acids, are important elements of sustained, life-long mental health and wellbeing.
Reflecting its mission statement to care not only about its markets but what it supplies, TransChem’s BCAAs are halal and kosher certified and specifically plant-based to cater to the strengthening global market for vegan and vegetarian products.
