The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) L-valine, L-leucine, and L-isoleucine help replenish membrane potential,enhance cellular protein synthesis and stimulate the synthesis of potassium channels in hair cells. Because they can be oxidized in the cell’s mitochondria, the branched chain amino acids may also provide energy and may serve as cellular fuel sources during periods of metabolic stress. As a result, BCAAs have been used with success with other cofactors to facilitate hair growth. A study in 2008 also showed BCAAs supplementation improved insulin resistance and beta cell function as well as energy metabolism and glucose tolerance in certain people. They are also used by athletes. A current mouse study showed restoring hippocampal BCAA concentrations to normal had the effect of reinstating normal brain function by helping the synapses to function efficiently.
