What are BCAA good for?
BCAA or Branched-chain amino acids are essential nutrients from proteins found in meat, dairy products, and legumes. BCAA supplements are commonly used to treat poor appetite in elderly who are suffering from kidney failure and to prevent fatigue and improve concentration.
Some athletes use BCAA to improve exercise performance. Still others use it as a dietary supplement for people having problems with eating such as diabetic people. BCAA help stimulate the building of protein in muscle and perhaps decrease muscle breakdown which is generally ideal for sick people to prevent muscle loss.
