BCAA’s help combat Obesity Britain’s premier medical journal, The Lancet, reported that 1.1 billion adults and 10% of children are considered overweight or obese. The Lancet went on to further report that the main causes of death stemming from obesity are cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and several cancers. Many factors play a role in obesity and a recent study published in the Journal of Nutrition showed the benefit of BCAA consumption on glucose homeostasis. BCAA supplementation helps modulate blood sugar by enhancing the glucose-alanine cycle and regulating protein synthesis. Lowering blood sugar is a critical step in preventing belly fat.
