Branched-chain amino acids, or BCAAs, are essential nutrients that must be consumed through diet. BCAA stores are rapidly depleted during exercise, leading to fatigue and slow recovery. Optimum Nutrition BCAA Capsules provide active adults a versatile, reliable option to replenish crucial BCAA stores for greater muscle building and recovery. These convenient capsules supply over 1000mg of BCAAs in a 2:1:1 ratio for daily muscle support.
BCAA Capsules can be taken between meals, before training, or after your workout to augment your daily intake of amino acids for anabolic support. BCAAs are metabolized directly in muscle, prolonging endurance and strength while you are in the thick of your workout. BCAAs also spare other amino acid groups for repair and rebuilding, preventing catabolism and speeding recovery.
The true strength of BCAAs is still being uncovered. One of their many benefits includes increasing phosphorylation of key enzymes in protein synthesis, resulting in a substantial boost in muscle growth and size. ON BCAA Capsules are the leading choice of strength training and endurance athletes alike for their anabolic and anticatabolic benefits.
Used with protein powders or protein rich foods, these 1000mg capsules help maximize muscle recovery and protein synthesis.

Leucine – Leucine is a stimulator of protein synthesis in muscle and is essential for growth. Leucine also produces energy, increasing strength during exercise, and plays a key role in muscle recovery following exercise.
Isoleucine – Isoleucine contributes to the biochemical processes that produce energy. It works in combination with leucine and valine to help build lean muscle mass and reduce fat.
Valine – Taking valine in a BCAA supplement has been found to improve building muscle and repairing tissue damage from exercise. It prevents muscle catabolism and helps speed recovery.
Q. Why Do I Need BCAAs?
A. Branched-chain amino acids, or BCAAs, are essential nutrients that stimulate the building of protein in muscle and reduce muscle breakdown. Intense exercise depletes BCAA stores, making it essential for athletes to replenish BCAA stock to prevent catabolism and fatigue.
Q. How Many Servings Can I Take a Day?
A. You can safely take up to 4 servings per day. Consuming more than 4 servings per day will not likely result in any additional benefit.
Q. Do BCAA Capsules Cause Any Side Effects?
A. BCAA Capsules are formulated with a pure, concentrated dose of BCAAs, nutrients the body needs in order to function properly. They are 100% safe, natural, and side effect free.
Q. Do I Need to Diet and Exercise to See Results?
A. BCAAs are an essential nutrient, meaning the body needs them in order to function at maximum levels. Because of this, taking BCAA Capsules will provide benefits regardless of activity level. Combining BCAA Capsules with a balanced diet and frequent exercise will amplify these benefits, resulting in greater muscle gain and faster recovery.
