BCAAs are three essential amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) meaning that they must be obtained through the diet. The BCAAs are especially important as they activate (especially leucine) the process of muscle protein synthesis as well as contributing as the building blocks of new proteins formed in the recovery period after exercise. As such, they compromise around a third of the protein within our muscles and therefore help to contribute to the growth of muscle mass. In addition, the BCAAs are also used as energy source during endurance exercise, especially during high-intensity and carbohydrate restricted exercise (i.e. low carb training).
L-Glutamine is the most abundant non-essential amino acid found in muscle tissue. During periods of prolonged and intense exercise, both blood and muscle stores of glutamine can become depleted in the post-exercise recovery period. Glutamine supplementation before and after exercise may therefore improve muscle, immune and gut function.
L-Arginine is a non-essential amino acid that may help increase muscle blood flow to allow the greater delivery of nutrients to the working muscles.
