After fitness workouts, metabolism remains elevated and the build-up of muscle protein is stimulated. Amino acids are the building blocks of these proteins. Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) belong to the 9 essential amino acids, which cannot be synthesized by the human body itself ? thus the intake needs to be covered through nutrition. The BCAAs L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine make up approximately 20-35% of human muscle protein! Unflavoured and powdered Dymatize? BCAAs can be added to water or your favourite drink in the morning, before or after training and deliver these three essential amino acids in a 2:1:1 ratio.
