These are histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine.
Unlike nonessential AA’s, essential AA’s can’t be made by your body and must be obtained through your diet.
The best sources of essential amino acids are animal proteins like meat, eggs and poultry.
When you eat protein, it’s broken down into AA’s, which are then used to help your body with various processes such as building muscle and regulating immune function.
Research also shows that having the correct balance of essential amino acids in your body will help you with post workout recovery.
The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential AA’s: leucine, isoleucine and valine. They are essential, meaning they can’t be produced by your body and must be obtained from food. BCAA supplements have been shown to build muscle, decrease muscle fatigue and alleviate muscle soreness.
