L-Valine is one of three Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). The other two are L-leucine and L-isoleucine. These amino acids contribute to the functioning of everyday life. The BCAAs are typically formulated together to provide maximum support to the body. L-Valine is derived from animal and vegetable protein.
L-Valine is invovled in glucose metabolism, protein synthesis, and the regulation of the immune system. As with the other BCAAs, L-valine could be involved in muscle growth and tissue repair, and stimulant acitvity. There is some evidence that L-valine is involved in muscle metabolism, the maintenance of nitrogen balance in the body, and exercise recovery time.
