BCAA Plus Vegetable Capsules contain the essential Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are needed in several internal functions of the body. They are classified as "essential" or "non-essential", with essential amino acids meaning they cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet to maintain good all-round health. Amino acids can be further used by the body to create hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters, antibodies and nutrient carriers. A suboptimal intake of the essential amino acids increases the body's need for the non-essential amino acids either through diet or supplementation. Foods that increase amino acid intake are meat, beans, cheese and eggs.
BCAA Plus is one of Solgar's premium-quality amino acid range products, to be taken as 2 vegetable capsules a day for easy absorption.
