BCAA and Fat Loss

BCAASupplementing with branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) have become a stable for those following a fat loss diet and rightfully so. BCAAs are comprised of the 3 amino acids l-leucine, l-isoleucine, and l-valine; making up roughly 1/6th of skeletal muscle protein. While exercising you will increase the oxidation of the BCAAs within your skeletal muscle and the less body fat you have, the greater rate at which this will happen.

Low muscle glycogen that is typically associated with a low carbohydrate diet will also increase BCAA breakdown in skeletal muscle and the faster you oxidize fat, the faster BCAAs are broken down.

Thankfully, supplementing with BCAAs reverses the oxidation of the muscle BCAAs, and enhances fat oxidation.

If your summer diet is already in full swing and you are looking to hold onto the precious muscle you have gained this winter consider supplementing with BCAAs during your training or cardio session for enhanced fat loss and muscle preservation.
