Branched-chain amino acids are neuroprotective against traumatic brain injury and improve recovery rate: prophylactic role for contact sports and emergent use.
This is the first study to demonstrate the neuroprotective effects of prophylactic BCAAs in TBI.. Previous findings in both animals and humans strongly support the neurorestorative benefits of BCAAs after traumatic brain injury..
BCAA treatment clearly provided a protective effect for both motor and cognitive function after traumatic brain injury.. Besides, previous work provides further support for the findings reported here and explains the mechanisms of action of BCAAs.
Early intervention for the reversal of the complex non-linear pathobiochemical cascade is essential to stop or reverse the damage..
