What are BCAAs?

BCAA stands for Branched-Chain Amino Acids. The term branched-chain refers to the branched chemical structure of the amino acids. It includes three essential amino acids that our bodies cannot synthesise and therefore we must get them from our diet. They include, Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. Our BCAA powder is made up of these amino acids in the ratio 4:1:1. They can be found in protein-rich foods and if not consumed via our regular diet, supplementation can be useful. It is important that we consume enough BCAAs as they are responsible a number of bodily processes.

What are the benefits of BCAAs?

There are a number of benefits of BCAA powders. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and therefore, play a vital role in building and repairing muscle. Studies show that BCAA’s aid in increasing muscle mass and easing muscle soreness thus resulting in improved recovery. The BCAA Leucine activates a pathway that is responsible for muscle synthesis which is the process of building muscle. However, despite BCAA’s being helpful for making muscle, they are not as effective as whey protein which contains the other essential amino acids, making it a complete amino acid source.

When should I consume BCAAs?

BCAA powder can be consumed at any time throughout the day, however, most people prefer to have BCAA’s before a workout. BCAA’s may help fuel your workout and provide you with increased stamina throughout your session. You might also find drinking BCAAs during your workout is a tasty way to stay hydrated. Post-workout or towards the end of the day is also an acceptable time to consume BCAA’s particularly if you have not consumed much protein that day. Check whether your BCAA product contains caffeine as this may have some unwanted side effects (for example, not being able to sleep that night). Fear not, True’s BCAA 4:1:1 does not contain caffeine and can be enjoyed at any time of day. One serving per day is recommended.

Where are BCAAs derived from?

True BCAA 4:1:1 contains BCAAs from Japan which are produced from vegetable-based fermentation as opposed to inferior animal-based extraction techniques that are common in China.

How do Japanese sourced BCAA's differ from regular BCAA's?

Japanese BCAA's are manufactured in a very different way to alternative BCAA's and are completely different in terms of appearance, taste, density and texture. Through the patented Ferment-A-Pure Technology these Japanese sourced BCAA's deliver the purest non-GMO form of amino acids available in the market. Ajinomoto amino acids are so pure that they are often used for pharmaceutical and clinical research. While the price is higher, than the more common Chinese BCAA's that are widespread in the market, the quality difference is significant. True Protein strongly recommends our Japanese sourced BCAA's as the best option in the market for your BCAA requirements.

Are Japanese BCAA 4:1:1 amino acids suitable for vegans and vegetarians?

Yes, amino acids are simply the individual building blocks of protein itself. Protein comes from various sources such as meats, whole grain carbohydrates and many vegetables. While amino acid profiles will vary in different foods, the actual amino acids are generic whether it comes from an animal or vegetable source. Many vegetarians and vegans may struggle to get adequate amino acids due to their dietary options and by having amino acids in supplement form, optimal levels can be guaranteed regardless of any restrictions faced when choosing wholefoods. Our Japanese sourced BCAA 4:1:1 is extracted from solely vegetable based raw materials making it the cleanest and purest end product in the market. Many Chinese BCAA products are extracted from raw materials of animal origin like horse hair or duck feathers.

How do I know True Japanese BCAA 4:1:1 is good quality?

True Protein's range of Japanese sourced amino acids represents the highest standard in the field of amino acids. The manufacturer is considered a world leader in the field of amino acids and is regularly chosen for advanced scientific and clinical trials.

Are True Japanese BCAA 4:1:1 soy free?

All our Ajinomoto amino acids are certified soy free.
