BCAA VS. EAA: AMINO ACIDS
What is the difference between BCAA’s (Branched Chain Amino Acids) and EAA’s (Essential Amino Acids)? And which one should we use?
It is actually a trick question because the three BCAA’s (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) are also three of the nine EAA’s. So all BCAA’s are EAA’s, but not all EAA’s are BCAA’s. Get it?
The reason why essential amino acids are called ‘essential’ is because the body doesn’t produce these amino acids on their own but are accrued in the body via protein dense foods and supplementation.
In the last decade Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) have gathered a massive amount of interest in the world of sports nutrition. Supplementing with BCAA’s was originally just a thearetical idea to boost muscle myofibrillar protein synthesis but has since been proven in studies to increase results & muscle myofibrillar protein synthesis by 22% when used.
But using only the three BCAA’s it is a lot like fielding a baseball team with only a shortstop, pitcher, and catcher. They may very well be the three most important positions, but you certainly can’t expect to win any game without the rest of the team.
The ideal time to take branched-chain amino acids is during workouts by adding 5-10 grams to your shake regimen, both pre-workout or post-workout, to fuel your body and repair your muscles.
What Is Bcaa ?
The supplements typically supply twice as much leucine than isoleucine or valine, which is sometimes referred to as a 2:1:1 ratio. This is because leucine may be especially good at stimulating protein synthesis and suppressing the breakdown of muscle protein (1Trusted Source).
All three BCAAs are directly taken up by your muscles rather than first being metabolized by your liver. As a result, BCAAs may have a faster effect.
However, scientists are still researching whether BCAA supplements offer a measurable advantage for physically active people compared to whole protein powders and whole food protein sources that contain BCAAs (2Trusted Source).
At the least, supplements are a portable, more convenient option.
