What Is The Best Ratio Of BCAA's?
Use an amino acid product that uses a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine to Isoleucine and Valine. Many products bump up the ratio much higher in favour of leucine, with some coming in at as high as a 10:1:1 ratio!
In these high ratios you might well buy a single ingredient Leucine product as you are hardly getting any Isoleucine and Valine? What's the point in buying a BCAA then if you don't get a productive spread of the core BCAA's.
Yes, you want ample Leucine to trigger muscle protein synthesis because Leucine is so critical for muscle growth but Isoleucine and Valine definitely have their own benefits.
Having higher serotonin levels during exercise signals the brain that the body is fatigued, which leads to a reduction in muscle strength and endurance. Valine slows down these elevated serotonin levels thereby allowing you to maintain better strength and endurance in the later portion of your workouts.
Isoleucine plays a major role in providing BCAA supplements their well known and researched fat burning benefits due to Isoleucine's ability to activate special receptors, known as PPAR, that increase fat burning and inhibit fat storage.
So a good BCAA should activate muscle building protein synthesis, increase your energy levels and amplify fat metabolism, so make sure you're getting the most productive ratio possible.
