Leucine, isoleucine and valine, the three essential amino acids, cannot be synthesised by your body. They are not metabolised in the stomach; instead they are the only amino acids actually metabolised in the muscle, making up 33% of muscle protein. They are very anabolic, they build muscle, and are highly anti-catabolic, they stop muscle breakdown, so are particularly useful for high intensity sport and resistance training. These essential branch chain amino acids (BCAA) are presented in high protein foods such as meat and dairy products.
