What are Vegan BCAAs?

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.

How do they work?

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.

What are the benefits of vegan BCAA supplements?

Some of the primary benefits associated with Vegan BCAAs include the following:

Muscle growth and repair

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.

More energy

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.

Improved mental health

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:

  • Increased muscle mass
  • Improved protein synthesis
  • Enhanced post workout recovery
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved mental health
  • Improved immune function
  • Less fatigue
  • Increased strength levels
  • And more...

How and when should they be consumed?

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.

Health Canada Recommended Dose: Adults: 1 Scoop(s) 1 time(s) per day. Mix product well in 1-2 cups of liquid (water, juice, etc.) immediately before consumption. Store in a cool, dry place.

What can they be stacked with?

A popular vegan bodybuilding supplement, ideally for the ultimate vegan-friendly supplement stack, you could go with: vegan BCAAs, vegan protein such as hemp or pea protein, and a multi vitamin.

ON POINT!
Anne-Marie B. on 26/05/2017
I just have to say that I am so happy to finally have found a vegan BCAA that is fast shipping, affordable and that does the job!
Yes, there's no flavor and it taste weird, but I just put in a one or two drops of Dasini Drops (sweetener) and it taste amazing. It helps a lot on my workouts.
Thank you for this product! Hopefully, there will be new flavors soon :D

No idea - seems good

I've only tried BCAA's once in the past and I have no idea how to rate the unflavoured ones. I am doing a 12 week muscle-builder program right now so I am supplementing with BCAAs, but don't really know for sure if it works or how it compares to others. I believe there are plenty of studies that show they help, but it could be a placebo effect.

Either way, the price is decent and I mix it with an electrolyte blend to sip on during my workouts so the taste doesn't bother me at all. I've heard that quality BCAAs should float in liquid, and this does, so I'm sure this is legit. Hopefully it helps me get swole. ;)
