Whats the difference between protein powder and bcaa's??

  1. Whats the difference between protein powder and bcaa's??


    ??....thanks for the help


  2. protein powder contains protein and bcaa's are branch chain amino acids. some protein powders, usually the good protein powders/weight gainers, contains bcaa's within them. even some multivitimans like animal pak, contain them. protein powder helps create lean muscle, and bcaa's usually help in training performance so that u can make lean muscle possible. thats what ive been told.

  3. BCAA's are just 3 specific amino acids (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine ) They are important because they are metabolized in the muscle and not in the liver. THey are absorbed the quickest at about 20mins from what I've read. Good reading about it at http://ezinearticles.com/?Know-Your-...-BCAAs&id=4453

    Protein powder comes from different sources (Milk, Whey, Soy, Hemp etc) and usually contains all the amino acids, and depending on the type has different properties like absorption time and growth fractions etc.

  4. Protein is a polypeptide which is a strain of amino acids. The body has to break protein down into amino acids to use within the body. This obviously takes energy and time. BCAA's are fast responding and require little energy to appropriate.

    This people like to bash bcaas by claiming that protein already provides them but what they fail to realize is that the bcaas in protein are peptide bonded and it will take more time to break them down where as bcaas are already broken down and ready for absorption

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES
