Who is suitable for branched-chain amino acid supplementation? When to supplement with branched chain amino acids?

Once you know the usefulness of branched-chain amino acids, who are they suitable for? Simply put, anyone who wants to relieve fatigue, such as athletes and fitness enthusiasts, can take a supplement. Healthy people can easily get enough branched-chain amino acids in their diet, while some people with high consumption need to take additional supplements.

The anti-fatigue effects of branched-chain amino acids have been proven in animal studies for a long time, so athletes have been taking them for a long time. Branched-chain amino acids are particularly suitable for prolonged endurance sports, so they are recommended for marathon runners to delay the onset of fatigue. Some parents may ask their children to supplement with branched-chain amino acids when they are under academic pressure.

There is also something to be said for choosing the right time to supplement with branched-chain amino acids, and different times of day play different roles. The following times are ideal for marathon running.

1. The purpose of supplementing with branched-chain amino acids before exercise is to reserve more BCAAs in preparation for running a horse race.

The main point of supplementation is that the body is almost depleted of energy, but there are still several kilometres to go. Supplementing with branched-chain amino acids at this time can stimulate the muscle cells to take in glucose and prevent protein degradation, and the catabolism of branched-chain amino acids can further strengthen the energy supply, which can enhance exercise capacity and extend exercise time. Supplementation of branched-chain amino acids during exercise can effectively reduce the onset of fatigue.


Supplementation within 2 hours after exercise. After a long period of endurance exercise such as horse running, the glycogen (the substance that provides energy) in the body is consumed in large quantities and the blood glucose level is also reduced, as is the amount of alanine, and the lactic acid and free radical content in the body is high at this time. The timely supplementation of branched-chain amino acids prevents the accumulation of lactic acid in the skeletal muscles and helps to remove it from the body, thus effectively delaying and reducing fatigue, as well as relieving the development of muscle soreness.

Branched-chain amino acids have no toxic side effects, but don't overdo it! Excessive supplementation of branched-chain amino acids can easily lead to an increase in the concentration of ammonia in the blood and brain, which can easily lead to ammonia poisoning, with unimaginable consequences! Therefore, when taking branched chain amino acids, it is better to follow the recommended amount. There are also some chicken essence foods on the market that claim to be anti-fatigue and are certified as health foods. Recently, there has also been a rush to buy "burn amino acid" drinks, which are also branched-chain amino acid drinks. Seeing this, you can see that the mysterious "fitness supplements" are now much more affordable!
