L-valine is a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) that supports muscle growth and repair.
L-valine is a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) that can enhance energy, increase endurance, and support healthy muscles. Like all essential amino acids, L-valine is not produced naturally in the body. That means you need to get it from foods like cheese, peanuts, mushrooms, whole grains, and vegetables or supplements like Re-Lyte Pre-Workout.
We included L-valine in Re-Lyte Pre-Workout because it aids muscle growth and repair. It does this by supporting the production of an enzyme called creatine kinase. Research also shows that it brings more glucose to the muscles, which can help energize your muscles during vigorous workouts.
In addition to L-valine, Re-Lyte Pre-Workout contains the BCAAs L-leucine and L-isoleucine. These three amino acids work together to aid overall muscle health and support your muscles against damage or injury.
The BCAAs we use in Re-Lyte Pre-Workout come from plant rather than animal sources, so they're vegan-friendly. Want to learn more about L-valine? Check out these resources:
