 BCAA or EAA Amino Acids - Which Amino Acids to Choose as a Training Support?

The dietary supplement market offers many products based on different ingredients, which can be a valuable support during the training being performed. Very often we notice products containing amino acids, which are often considered the basis of supplements for people who exercise. Which one deserves to be chosen? BCAAs or EAAs?

Which amino acid to choose? Differences between BCAAs and EAAs

The name BCAA refers to amino acids whose main property is branching of the aliphatic side chain (hence the name branched exogenous amino acids). This complex contains three essential elements: L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine. According to current knowledge, they constitute up to half of the essential amino acids present in the daily diet. In addition, they are credited with approximately 35% of all exogenous amino acids that participate in the formation of muscle protein.

In the case of essential amino acids, we refer to a group of eight amino acids, which also have an exogenous character and must be provided to the body through the daily diet. What are these amino acids? Besides the BCAA compound described above, it is important to mention: L-lysine, L-phenylalanine, L-methionine, L-threonine and L-tryptophan. So it's easy to see that the two amino acid groups overlap, thanks to the three components mentioned above.


In both cases, protein of animal origin is a rich source, although some plant products (such as pulses) are also more often mentioned. Despite the significant differences in the amount of amino acids present, BCAAs and EAAs are also an interesting option for action on the athletic figure, which is linked, among other things, to mechanisms of new muscle protein synthesis or influence on nitrogen balance.

BCAA or EAA - which one to choose in supplement form?

In the offer of the Olimp Sport Nutrition brand, there are a variety of products that allow to supplement the daily diet with BCAA amino acids and an EAA complex. All products are prepared in the modern laboratories of the pharmaceutical company Olimp Laboratories, from high-quality raw materials, which have previously undergone microbiological purity analysis. All this to ensure a high level and necessary safety during use.

Which products to choose? In the case of branched-chain amino acids, it is worth looking for a BCAA Xplode product that, in addition to the BCAA complex, contains a valuable addition of L-glutamine. In the case of EAA amino acids, Amino EAA Xplode will be a huge booster, providing over 9g of the most important and valuable ingredients per serving,
