You Don’t Need a BCAA Powder with BiPro

There is a lot of literature touting the health benefits of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), and for good reason. The three BCAAs – leucine, isoleucine and valine – have been shown to improve exercise performance and reduce muscle breakdown.

But you don’t need a special BCAA powder to take advantage of leucine, isoleucine and valine’s benefits. All you need is BiPro.

BiPro protein powders and waters are complete proteins, meaning that they contain all nine of the essential amino acids that must be consumed through food. And three of the nine essential amino acids are the three BCAAs.

Every serving of BiPro product contains at least  2.3 grams of leucine, 1.1 grams of isoleucine and 1.08 grams of valine. Leucine carries some unique benefits in particular. An article from the Whey Protein Institute describes the amino acid as a “metabolic trigger” that initiates muscle protein synthesis.

“Not all proteins are created equal nutritionally. They do not have the same amino acid profile,” according to the article. “Higher quality protein sources with more leucine will require lower consumption of protein per meal.”

The next time you’re looking for a protein supplement, don’t buy a protein powder and a BCAA powder. Just order a high-quality protein powder like BiPro, which already has all three BCAAs in it.
