BCAA provides the branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. Branched chain amino acids are unique in that they are not broken down by the liver; they are primarily metabolized in skeletal muscle cells. These amino acids stimulate protein synthesis necessary for muscle formation. Studies have reported that post-exercise protein intake helps to enhance the repair of muscle protein. Specifically, research has shown that branched chain amino acid intake after resistance exercise results in a positive protein balance (a greater rate of protein synthesis than breakdown). One trial found a greater level of protein synthesis after a resistance workout when leucine was added to the amino acid mixture than a protein formula without leucine. Branched chain amino acids also stimulate protein synthesis in muscle to help in the recovery period after endurance exercise.
