Top 5 Proven Benefits Of Amino Acids For Strength And Recovery

October 12, 2019 1 By Ewald Bahringer


Have you ever wondered why people who exercise
and want to build muscle often talk about including protein-rich food in their diet? This video aims to widen your understanding
of amino acids, in general, and branched-chain amino acids in particular, and to deepen your
appreciation of the health benefits they provide. It seeks to show you why you need to include
foods in your diet that are rich in branched-chain amino acids, also known as BCAA’s into your
diet. Protein, like fats and carbohydrates, is a
primary macronutrient. It plays a significant role in almost everything
that occurs in the body. Protein is made up of compounds called amino
acids or what we often refer to as the building blocks of protein. Amino acids are sometimes called the building
blocks of life. They figure prominently in many vital functions
and processes in the body. They help build muscle. They repair tissue. They produce energy. Amino acids help carry blood all over the
body. They boost the body’s natural immune system. They help the body absorb nutrients. Amino acids help the body produce hormones,
enzymes, and other chemicals. They help keep the skin, bones, blood, organs,
cartilage, nails, and hair healthy. The body makes use of 20 different amino acids
to grow, develop, and function properly. Nine of these amino acids, including valine,
isoi-leucine, leucine, tryptophan, histi-dine, methio-nine, threo-nine, lycine, and phenyla-lanine,
are known as indispensable or essential amino acids. Your body cannot make or synthesize these
amino acids. You have to get them from food or dietary
supplements. Of these nine, the first three (valine, isoi-leucine,
and leucine) are called BCAAs because of their branched molecular structure. BCAAs are found in meat, eggs, dairy products,
and other protein-rich sources. Research shows that branched-chain amino acids
have the following proven benefits: 1. They enhance muscle growth. BCAAs facilitate the effective growth of muscles. Leucine, in particular, helps to build muscle. It activates the process of muscle protein
synthesis. When you exercise, you stimulate your muscles
by putting them under stress. Leutine helps to activate, regulate, and increase
muscle growth. 2. They reduce muscle soreness. BCAAs reduce the wear and tear that extreme
forms of physical exercise may inflict on the muscles. It is natural to feel sore for about a day
or two following a strenuous workout. Delayed onset muscle soreness, also known
as DOMS, usually occurs between 12 and 24 hours after you do some heavy exercise. The soreness can extend to 72 hours post workout,
particularly if you do a new or unfamiliar workout routine. Although nobody can say for certain what it
is that triggers DOMS, experts speculate that the condition is brought on by the tiny tears
that exercise causes in the muscles during workout. Research shows that BCAAs protect the muscles
and, thus, reduce soreness and damage. 3. Benefit of BCAA’s: They improve recovery. By limiting the effects of delayed onset muscle
soreness, they reduce muscle soreness and help you recover quickly. BCAAs not only hasten recovery; they also
improve the quality of healing. They help muscles recuperate more efficiently. They help repair muscle tissue and build stronger
muscle. BCAAs help muscles become stronger, more well-defined
and well-toned – characteristics associated with progress in physical fitness and strength. 4. They stimulate greater fat burn. Studies demonstrate that BCAAs help stimulate
fat loss. When you go on a low-carb diet or want to
lose body fat, BCAAs help you make the switch. It helps burn more fat by triggering the body
to use fat as fuel. 5. They enhance overall performance in sports. BCAAs help the body respond positively to
physical exercise. In addition to the physical benefits they
produce, BCAAs also increase mental focus. They help you think more quickly and make
better decisions. By combining physical and mental benefits,
BCAAs help you perform better in sports and other physical activities. In summary, BCAAs go a long way to help you
achieve the strong, muscled, and well-toned physique that you want. See to it that you get the physical training
you need, as well as adequate amounts of protein-rich foods like red meat, milk, cheese, and yogurt. Share this video with people who will benefit
