More specifically, you want help with Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) Do NOT Make Muscle?
hey guys today we’re gonna talk about branch chain amino acids okay a lot of times people take them to think that they’re gonna build muscle and that is a total myth the first thing I want to talk about is what is an amino acid amino acid is the building block to proteins okay so look at it like alphabet you have all these letters that make words that form a language in the body with amino acids you have all these different combinations from simple to very complex protein structures made from amino acids I mean from muscle to skin to enzymes to hormones to bone almost the entire body is made out of amino acids so there are actually three branched chain amino acids leucine isoleucine and valine okay now normally we have nine essential amino acids that means this they’re essential because your body can’t make them you must get them from the diet okay so we’re talking about three we’re missing six we need nine to build muscle now there are actually no human studies that show that taking a branch amino acids either in a powder form or a pill form will increase muscle synthesis or a muscle building now not only will it not build muscle but it won’t even prevent muscle loss now there are actually two intravenous studies that showed that it decreased protein synthesis okay so what does it do it turns into fuel so you may experience a little bit of energy while you’re working out maybe a little improvement in performance but no muscle growth so you need all nine essential amino acids for recovery for repair for growth of proteins and as a side note seventy percent of the muscle loss that you get is recycled alright so the amount of protein that we need actually is not as much as you think now when you do fasting and you get your body into a tofu G which is the recycling of old damaged proteins this number does go up we don’t know to what degree but it is higher than 70 all right guys there you have it that is the myth of the branched-chain amino acid thanks for watching I’ll see you in the next video when you have all nine you get recovery you get repair whoops [Music]

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA). Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Most of the time people would take BCAA to build muscle, but it is just a total myth. There are no human studies that show taking BCAA will increase muscle synthesis and it won’t also prevent muscle loss.
3 Types of Branched Chain Amino Acids
There are two intravenous studies that showed it decrease in protein synthesis. BCAA turns into fuel that may give you a little bit of energy while you are working out. The body needs all 9 essential amino acids for recovery, repair, and regrowth of proteins. 70% of muscle protein breakdown is recycled.
