Biochem/physiol Actions

Valine is an essential amino acid, involved in the biosynthesis of glutamine and alanine. Valine being a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) maintains a balance among the BCAAs. L-Valine serves as an energy fuel. Long term deficiency of L-Valine leads to growth failure, organ damage and loss of muscle mass.
