There are 22 amino acids. Nine of them are essential, meaning that the body must take them in as food because the body cannot manufacture them on its own. Thirteen of the essential acids are non-essential; we can survive without eating them. Three of the nine essential acids are called Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA). They are called branched chain as they have a chain structure that protrudes from the body of the structure.
This diagram depicts the structural difference between regular amino acids and the branched chain amino acids. The right hand top structure has several branches compared to the first two. The bottom structures are also highly branched.
The groups of people who know about BCAA’s are body builders. The reason is that these amino acids play a critical role in muscle building.

Most people think of preventing or treating bladder infections with cranberry juice or capsules, and it is very effective. A more effective way to treat bladder infections is to use an extract of the cranberry called D-Mannose. This is a simple sugar that binds onto the bacteria, preventing it to adhere to the bladder wall. D-Mannose is 10 times more potent than using the entire cranberry extract.
