WHAT ARE VEGAN BCAAs?
BCAA’s, also known as Branched Chain Amino Acids are made up of 3 key amino acids, Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, all of which play a key role in the muscle building process. Commonly, BCAA’s are sourced from meat and cheese, however, our Vegan BCAA’s are sourced from animal free sources, making them ideal for anyone following a plant based diet.
HOW DO VEGAN BCAA’S WORK?
After a hard workout, your body will enter into a catabolic state where it starts to break down muscle tissue in order to produce the required energy for muscle contractions. While this may be a great thing if your aim is to lose weight, it does mean a large reduction in muscle mass. To combat this, the simplest and easiest way is to supplement your body with Vegan BCAA’s throughout the day, this will help to reach your leucine threshold as well help support your body with the process of protein synthesis.
WHY SHOULD VEGANS USE BCAA’S?
As we mentioned earlier, BCAA’s are most commonly found in meats and dairy products. As these are not suitable for Vegans, essential amino acids can often be missing from a Vegan Diet. But by using a Vegan BCAA, Vegans can ensure their body is fuelled with the vital amino acids needed to help with protein synthesis.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE BCAA’S?
Maintaining high levels of amino acids within your body throughout the day is essential to stop your body from using muscle protein as fuel. To achieve this, we recommend taking 5g of Vegan BCAA’s throughout the day to ensure your levels are topped up throughout the day as well as ensuring you take BCAA’s 30-45 minutes before your workout.
