In brief: Let me explain

The essential branched chain Amino Acids (bcaa's) include leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
The above "essential" Amino Acids will be used for protein synthesis which is optimal for advanced human performance. It should also be noted that essential Amino Acids are not produced in the body such as non-essential amino acids, but rather obtained through proper nutrition.
