BCAA and weight loss - What's the relation?
Exercising is the inevitable aspect in any weight loss regime to achieve aesthetic, competition or health objectives. But avid exercising and tedious workouts are not the only challenges one has to beat while taking on a weight loss program. Taking control over hormonal changes namely hunger and cravings, while maintaining muscular strength, is the actual challenge.
Lately, BCAA (branched-chain amino acid) supplements have made a predicted comeback to fitness groups, which crave a leaner body and with fat loss. Extensive research, studies and experiments have been conducted that support the utilization of BCAAs than most different supplements available in the fitness supplement markets.
towards gaining a muscle mass. Branched chain amino acid or BCAA is present in the food substitutes which include luecina, isoleucine, valine which are the essential amino acids, which can instantly increase the muscle protein about 19%.
5-For people who can not take the dietary foods may use the food supplements enriched in protein so that they can keep a healthier physique. To know what are food supplements which are effective in improving the immunity system of body and accessible along…
Amino acids are building block s of proteins. Each amino acid contains main three structural components.
1) Amino group
2) Carboxcilic group
3) R group

R can be hydrogen or any other functional group .in world there are around 182-200 found to be present in nature but we can find 20 aminoacids in…
Inborn errors of metabolism are a group of rare disorders characterized by metabolic pathway abnormalities. One such disorder is Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD) otherwise known as Branched-chain Ketoaciduria, a dangerous condition in which over saturation of amino acids in the blood can lead to toxicity progressing to encephalopathy, neurodegeneration, coma or respiratory failure (Haldeman-Englert, 2015). MSUD results from a malfunction of the branched-chain alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase complex…

In this post you will learn some basic information about what BCAA is and what it does. The brand I use is called Xtend .
What is BCAA?
BCAA stands for Branched-Chain Amino Acids , meaning branched chain amino acids.
Protein (eg protein in your muscles) is made up of amino acids. There are many different amino acids, and particular BCAA includes:
These three amino acids are essential . This means that they are essential to life and the body…
candidate conjugated polymers, both natural and synthetic materials are used, e.g. polysaccharides, gelatin, amino acids, polyethyleneglycol (PEG), and numerous polyacrylates (Rock, and DeMichele, 2003). These…
defined amino acid sequence which gives rise to its three dimensional structure which is essential to the protein’s function. These amino acids interact with one another to produce a specific folding pattern that produces the conformation of the protein. When one looks at the progression a protein makes in its folding complexity, it is clear that the folding is driven by the amino acid sequence alone.
To understand this concept it is best to start with the primary structure of the protein,…
An insight in the biophysical properties of bio macromolecules
Natural biopolymers such as nucleic acids, proteins and carbohydrates are essential for life as we see it today. It is incredible to think how this vast set of molecules that are in every living thing, from bacteria to human beings, are mostly made up by six elements (carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur and phosphorus). These biopolymers have the properties to, from small monomers, build giant tridimensional structures with a…
Using your knowledge of protein structure
And “R” groups explain why these are necessary.
Matter cannot be destroyed nor created there for proteins are broken down into amino acids and then go through the anabolic reaction which builds them back up
8) Would you hypothesize that the meat tenderizer would still work if it were?
Meat tenderizer is an enzyme. Enzymes denature in extreme heat but work really good in room temperature 37c. So it depends what the temperature…
The assigned sequence was most closely matched via the BLAST algorithm with the retrieved sequence of Trypsin-1, accession no P07477.7  (Appendix 1).
Trypsin-1 is a 247 amino acid long protein  (Appendix 3) of the serine protease family, with a molecular mass of 26,558 Daltons  (Appendix 2). It is globular in shape and contains two regions of α-helices and multiple regions of β-sheets, as seen in Figure 1. It contains disulphide bonds at residue positions 30/160, 48/64, 139/206,…
