Why do you include BCAA’s in Thersty’s drink mix?

Each serving of Thersty’s drink mix includes L-Leucine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine.  BCAA’s (Branched-Chain Amino Acids) are essential, which means they cannot be produced by your body and must be obtained from food sources.  BCAA’s have been shown to decrease muscle fatigue and alleviate muscle soreness.  They are also a useful transportation system for electrolytes to absorb in your body in the absence of glucose.

Are BCAA’s harmful?

BCAA’s are completely safe, they are found in the daily foods you eat such as chicken, dairy and legumes.  Understanding how much you should consume is the case with any food or drink product; whether it is sugar, salt, trans fats, artificial food colouring, etc.
