Gary Brecka with Streamline Medical Group and today's discussion is about (BCAA) branched-chain amino acids. Most of us have heard of amino acids because these are the essential building blocks of proteins that are found all throughout the body. There are 22 amino acids in the body of which nine of those amino acids are what they call essential amino acids.
What is essential mean? Essential amino acids are an amino acid that your body does not synthesize and therefore that amino acid must come from diet or supplementation. Within those nine essential amino acids are three critically important amino acids. They are so important that Streamline Medical Group isolated these three into a singular injection.
