Alpha Aminos BCAA
Alpha Aminos BCAA
Alpha Aminos BCAA is a Branch Chain Amino Acid supplement. Branch Chain Amino Acids, are often referred to as the building blocks of the human body, due largely to the fact that they make up more than 35% of a person’s skeletal muscle mass. Supplementing with our Alpha Aminos BCAA will allow greater rates of muscle protein synthesis, delayed fatigue during workouts and soreness afterward. Adding a scoop of Alpha Aminos BCAA is the best way to end your workout and start the muscle preserving and growing recovery process.
Alpha Aminos BCAA: Leucine, Valine, Isoleucine, L-Glutamine, & Vitamin B6.

Alpha Aminos BCAA
Supplementing with Alpha Aminos BCAA can allow greater rates of protein synthesis and delayed fatigue during workouts and training since most people are deficient in branched chain amino acids. When the body undergoes physical stress, BCAAs can be used as an alternate fuel source to fuel protein synthesis and delay fatigue.
What are BCAAs?
BCAAs, or Branch Chain Amino Acids, are often referred to as the building blocks of the human body, due largely to the fact that they make up more than 35% of a person’s skeletal muscle mass. Not only that, but they are also vital for molecular development and growth to take place as well.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein molecules, so naturally, a great deal of bodybuilders and strength athletes tend to include BCAAs as part of their supplement regime. They are comprised of three amino acids, which are: Leucine, Valine, and Isoleucine, and they get their name due to the fact that their molecular chemical structure resembles the branches of a tree, hence the name Branch, or sometimes, Branched chain amino acids.
How do they work?
BCAAs are known as essential amino acids, due to the fact that the body needs them, but cannot synthesize them naturally. Because of this, they have to come in the form of supplements, beverages, or whole foods.
Each of the amino acids making up BCAAs however, functions in a different way. Leucine for example, is considered a potent muscle building amino acid, due to the fact that this is actually the only protein that has been found to contribute directly to protein synthesis. Because of this, post-workout recovery heavily relies on this amino acid.
However, it also contributes towards the production of sterols, which are essential for the formation of steroidal hormones such as HGH or Testosterone, which also help build muscle. Isoleucine plays a vital role in the utilization and mobilization of fat, in which it helps to body convert it into energy. Valine, however, is considered most useful for energy production purposes as it can easily be broken down and converted into glycogen, which can then be used for energy.
Combine the three together, and you have a pretty awesome muscle-building supplement.
What are the benefits of BCAA supplements?
Muscle growth and repair
As mentioned, BCAAs play a crucial role in the growth and repair of muscle tissue, due largely to the fact that they help assist with protein synthesis, in which the body literally synthesizes new muscle proteins to replace damaged and worn-down ones. On top of that however, the additional energy you receive by using BCAAs, is also beneficial as the more energy you have, the more productive your workouts will become.
Another great benefit of BCAAs is the fact that they can help you to lose body fat, whilst preserving lean muscle mass. This is mainly down to isoleucine, which as mentioned, helps assist with fat mobilization and utilization, which basically means that it helps allow the body to burn fat as a primary energy source. This is ideal because you actually fuel your workouts with your body fat stores, so the more fat you burn, the more energy you have, which means that you can exercise even harder and more intensely.
Another reason why people tend to supplement with BCAAs is the fact that they also help to boost the metabolism and assist with energy production. Isoleucine for example, helps to burn body fat for energy, whereas valine can actually be converted directly into glycogen, which the muscles use as a primary source of energy.
Other benefits include:
How and when should they be taken?
BCAAs commonly come in powered supplement form, although some are sold in liquid form, and/or tablet form as well. Experts recommend around 2 x 5g servings per day, so 10g in total. Some people choose to add them to their post-workout shake, whilst others sip on them during their workout. A second dosage is usually taken late at night, before going to bed.
Health Canada Recommended Dose (powder): 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.
