Valine is one of the 9 essential amino acids needed for normal growth. Valine, along with leucine and isoleucine, is one of three branched chain amino acids (BCAA). We ingest valine through foods high in protein such as meats, dairy products, soy products, and legumes.
When taken properly, intake of valine can:
Help Build Muscle
Help Repair Muscle
Serve as a Stimulant
Protect the Nervous System
Stabilize Blood Sugar Levels
WHAT IT DOES
Helps Build Muscle: Valine assists with the maintenance of nitrogen levels in the body, an essential component of amino acids and proteins.
Serves as Stimulant: Its stimulant effects make valine a coveted amino for suppressing appetite as well as for providing a boost of energy.
Preserves the Nervous System: Valine is instrumental in maintaining the myelin sheath, which facilitates and protects transmissions between neurons.
Produces Energy: As a glucogenic amino acid, valine can be converted into glucose. This process aids endurance athletes and builders looking to minimize muscle breakdown and maximize body functions during exercise. Because of its sugar-producing properties, researchers are exploring the use of valine to treat diabetes and other blood sugar diseases.
Tissue Repair: its is an important tool in treating hepatic encephalopathy and some forms of degenerative neurological disorders related to drug and alcohol addictions - rectifying and sometimes reversing the effects.
HOW TO SUPPLEMENT
It is best taken as a BCAA with a ratio of 2:1:1. The following is a suggested daily regime.
Take 15 minutes before fasted morning cardio.
Take during and after training. Ideally, you have eaten a high-protein meal within an hour of training – the aminos in your food will provide your pre-workout valine.
Remember, always ask your doctor before taking any supplement.
