There is a misconception among many endurance athletes that BCAAs are used primarily for athletes who are interested in building muscle mass. Nothing could be further from the truth.
While BCAAs are commonly used to increase muscle growth, that’s not their sole purpose. BCAAs have actually been shown to decrease muscle soreness, reduce exercise fatigue and curb muscle breakdown. For an endurance athlete, this offers a big boost to your training regimen.
So what are BCAAs exactly? Branched-chain amino acids, or BCAAs, are a group of three essential amino acids: Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. By definition, essential amino acids cannot be produced by our bodies and therefore must be obtained via food or supplements.
Herbalife24® BCAAs have a 4:1:1 ratio of Leucine to Valine to Isoleucine that helps curb muscle breakdown and support muscle recovery. This enables you, as an endurance athlete, to train harder and recover faster.
The perfect example of how BCAAs can help with endurance training is Herbalife Nutrition Sponsored Professional Triathlete Heather Jackson. Heather incorporated Herbalife24® BCAAs into her daily training routine as she prepared for the 2019 IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, where she regained her title as the top American triathlete.
Heather shared her thoughts with us shortly before the big event. “I’ve been using Herbalife24® BCAAs daily and love them! I feel like I have been recovering way better and have been able to back up my training day after day,” she wrote. “Also, the Green Apple flavor is super light and tastes great!”
To get the most out of Herbalife24® BCAAs, you should consume them before or during your workout.
