BCAAs as Branched Chain Essential Amino Acids enhance the metabolic processes that form long protein molecules the type that forms muscles in our bodies. BCAAs build and repair muscles with resistance training, leading to more productive exercise and less soreness from workouts.

WHAT ARE BCAAs? Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins in our body. Amino acids are also indirectly responsible for muscle growth in our body because all muscles are made of proteins. Research has revealed that certain amino acids, specifically the Branched-Chain Amino acids (BCAAs), help prevent fatigue and maintain muscle mass and strength during times of physical stress, even during intense workouts. The BCAAs, namely Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine are the three essential amino acids. The ‘branched chain’ designation refers to their unique chemical structure that cannot be replicated inside our body; hence they must be obtained from our diet. The combination of these three BCAAs makes up approximately 1/3 of the skeletal muscle in the human body.

Branched Chain Amino Acids have a non-continuous link of carbon bonds. That means, the BCAAs have one carbon atom that is not in a linear fashion that makes it a branched point. All Branched Chain Amino Acids have one or more points of non-continuous links. The other five Branched Chain Amino Acids are Phenylalanine, Methionine, Tryptophane, Threonine, and Lysine. Some authorities suggest that there are a total of ten essential amino acids that include Arginine and Histidine. Other studies suggest that Arginine and Histidine are conditionally essential. The Branched Chain Amino Acids make up to 40% of the daily requirements of essential amino acids.

At one point, the safe levels or the RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) for BCAAs were 20% of the total amino acids required for daily needs. The established values for amino acids come from the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) and the National Research Council (NRC). The FAO and the NRC are the two bodies that are concerned with the studies related to the growth and development of infants and children. After closer evaluation of human needs, the requirement of BCAAs went up dramatically to the current levels of 40%. The changes in RDA levels and the BCAAs have changed dramatically in the last years.  A number of studies that established the levels for BCAAs involved individuals fasting and living a normal lifestyle, and not in the quest to achieve more muscle mass or energy. Athletes are commonly one of the primary groups using BCAAs in supplemental forms.

 

METABOLISM OF BCAAs

General metabolism: Proteins are the foundation of amino acids. In order to render amino acids from protein molecules, proteins must be digested via the gastrointestinal tract, the GI. This involves the stomach, the Hydrochloric Acid that is secreted inside it, its reaction with large protein molecules; then the secretion of protease inside the pancreas that helps in the breakdown of longer amino chains; and finally the breakdown into smaller fragments in the small intestine to form free amino acids and some small peptides containing the enzyme peptides. Most amino acids are then subjected to transportation to the liver and undergo further metabolism in the viscera (splanchnic) area and the stomach mucosal area.

 

Free BCAAs are a little different in the way that they are directly carried by the blood through the liver. Whereas, some are exchanged in the intestinal viscera and eventually mix up in the bloodstream directly. Almost all amino acids can be degraded and broken down in the liver effectively with the exception of BCAAs. The liver oxidizes the BCAAs from their converted form called Oxo-Keto Acids. This means that the basic BCAAs are not metabolized by the liver directly. Ultimately, large percentages of the BCAAs are oxidized by the muscle tissue and some by fat (Adipose) tissue. But a large percentage of oxidation occurs in the muscle tissue (Organ Specific Muscle).

EXERCISE AND BCAAs Six amino acids are taken from the muscle tissue for energy that includes Alanine, Aspartate, Glutamate, and the BCAAs. While the BCAAs have the greatest metabolic potential for energy use in the muscles, muscle tissues have 60% of the specific enzymes needed for the oxidation (burning) of amino acids for energy. In essence, the muscle is designed to burn BCAA amino acids for energy. During exercise, the body uses BCAAs as energy. The longer and harder the workout, the more BCAAs that are used by the muscles for energy. It is estimated that 3% to 18% of all workout energy is provided by the BCAAs.

 

The body's need for BCAAs, especially Leucine, is 25 times greater than the free amino pool or the readily available Leucine. The free amino pool is free of single amino acids found in the skeletal muscle, blood, and cell plasma. (75% is in muscle). Free amino acids are amino acids that are not bound but are waiting to be used. Because of the great need for Leucine, the body must catabolize or break down the muscle for the Leucine needed during a workout. BCAAs can also be converted to Alanine or Glutamine inside the muscle. Alanine and Glutamine can go through gluconeogenesis in the liver to form Glucose.
