What are BCAA’s?

BCAA’s, or branched chain amino acids, are a group of three essential amino acids: valine, isoleucine and leucine. BCAA’s naturally occur in protein, which is important for building and maintaining muscle. They’re considered essential as the body is unable to produce them, so we must either get them from food (which can be time consuming and costly) or BCAA supplements.

What are the benefits of BCAA powders & supplements?

BCAA’s are the building blocks of protein, so they’re ideal for supporting the growth, maintenance and recovery of muscles across all kinds of training goals. We have a wide range of high-quality BCAA powders, tablets, drinks and capsules available to suit any preference, making it easy and affordable to up your intake of essential amino acids alongside a healthy, balanced diet.

When is the best time to take BCAA’s?

You can take BCAA supplements at any time during the day, although most people prefer to take them around 15-30 minutes before working out. You can take a BCAA tablet or capsule, add a BCAA powder to your pre-workout shake or enjoy a BCAA drink before you hit the gym, track or training field.

Can I take BCAA instead of protein?

As BCAA’s are not a complete protein source (i.e., they don’t contain all nine essential amino acids), they do not count towards your protein needs. It’s perfectly fine to use both BCAA and protein supplements to get the best of both worlds. If you're watching your calorie intake, BCAA's generally have a lower caloric value compared to a protein shake. So, you may want to opt for a BCAA supplement rather than a shake in that case.
