Vegan BCAAs are vegan-friendly branch chain amino acids that consist of leucine, isoleucine, and valine. They are also enriched with non GMO sunflower lecithin, which is a fat soluble molecule which forms a vital component of cell membranes. As you may expect, this makes vegan BCAAs absolutely ideal for those of you looking to build muscle and maintain optimal cellular health and function. The BCAA powder contained in this supplement are sourced from natural and 100% vegan-friendly sources, and have proven incredibly effective for people looking to build muscle and improve their athletic performance in the process.
Vegan BCAA powder works in a whole variety of different ways, because it contains such a potent mixture of three separate amino acids. In terms of regulating the metabolism of protein, BCAAs are key. Vegans and vegetarians need protein to build muscle like anybody else, the only difference is that their protein sources have to come from slightly more unique sources. The protein however, still has to be utilized by the body to build muscle and retain muscle, which is where BCAAs come into the fold. They suppress the breakdown of protein in muscle tissues, plus they promote protein synthesis, which is where the body naturally creates new muscle proteins. What’s more, they also serve as a viable energy source intra-workout, and can assist with post-workout recovery following a workout. What’s more, they can ward off fatigue by lowering tryptophan and serotonin when we workout, which can also assist with mental health and well-being. In terms of protein synthesis, leucine in particular, has been found to be very potent.
Some of the primary benefits associated with Vegan BCAAs include the following:
BCAAs are the building blocks of protein molecules, and as protein is so vital for muscle growth and repair, as well as cellular health and function, having enough BCAAs in your system is absolutely essential. BCAAs will help to initiate protein synthesis and will speed up muscular recovery after a workout.
As mentioned, BCAAs can also help to fight fatigue by naturally lowering tryptophan levels in the body. Tryptophan is a chemical that is responsible for making us feel tired and sleepy, and it is found in certain foods, which is why we often feel tired if we consume it in dietary form. By lowering tryptophan levels whilst you train however, you feel more energized and more alert.
When exercising, having your head in the game, as it were, is also very important, as you need to ensure that you are able to focus on the task at hand, and that you’re motivated. Vegan BCAAs also have beneficial effects on the brain, as they assist with the production of neurotransmitters and hormones responsible for putting us in a good mood.
Other benefits include:
Vegan BCAAs should ideally be consumed Intra/post workout, although some people actually begin sipping on them before they train. Ideally you should mix 5g of vegan BCCA powder with water, give a good mix, and begin sipping on it when you begin your workout. By the time you finish training, you should have consumed nearly all of your amino acids, and you should notice improvements in strength, focus, and energy levels, as well as recovery rates.
