Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are referred to as Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) and are a part of the Essential Amino Acid family. BCAA's are important for muscle recuperation, muscle energy and muscle growth.BCAA's cannot be produced by the body and must be supplied through your diet. BCAAs enter your bloodstream and attach directly to muscle where they repair damaged muscle tissue. This process helps promote muscle recovery and growth
