The branched (BCAAs) L-valine, L-leucine, and L-isoleucine enhance protein synthesis in liver cells and muscle cells. Because they can be oxidized in the cell’s mitochondria, the branched chain acids may also provide and may serve as fuel sources for skeletal muscles during periods of metabolic stress. As a result, BCAAs have been used with success to support liver function. A study in 2008 also showed BCAAs supplementation improved insulin resistance and beta cell function as well as and glucose tolerance in certain people. They are also used by athletes. A current mouse study showed restoring hippocampal BCAA concentrations to normal had the effect of reinstating normal brain function by helping the synapses to function efficiently. They are used by body builders to produce an anabolic effect, improve mental and physical performance and repair the microtears that are a normal result of exercise. Branched chain acids also reduce perceived exertion and mental fatigue during exercise.

Quality control ! I used to be a long time customer but the company has changed and not in a good way . I have taken these for years and never had a problem but these smelled and tasted like someone poured rubbing Alcohol on them ! I almost puked on the spot . I am threw with Life Extensions after this bad batch . I am tempted to send these to a lab and have them tested for being laced with something . Just having them in my mouth burned thankfully I spit them out .

I’ve been taking 2 caps before and after doing yoga and have been feeling fine. I did not do so during 3 days … I don’t know how to evaluate if a vitamin is working…I’ve been taking 2 caps before and after doing yoga and have been feeling fine. I did not do so during 3 days straight of yoga and I actually felt sore. So I guess this thing works like a charm. I give it 4 stars bc I have no way of proving this!
