BCAAs… What is that? Do they work? What exactly do they do? Can they harm your body?
Many people take supplements without truly understanding the purpose of using them. They just buy the outfits or the supplements because that’s what fitness gurus say to do. Do you think that is really going to help you lose weight if you don’t know how to use them properly or what exactly their purpose is?? #false
To define BCAAs (Branch Chain Amino Acids) refer to three amino acids consisting of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. They are utilized for muscle growth and recovery. These amino acids can be bought at Wal-Mart or any fitness store around your area in a powder or liquid supplement form. You will want to ingest approximately 5-10 g per dose. (Sarah Mattison Berndt )They range at about $19 and up. You can also find them online at different fitness websites: Bodybuilding.com, supplementwarehouse.com, just to name a few. However, these amino acids are in everyday foods, such as meat, eggs, poultry and nuts.
BCAAs can be used for those looking to gain muscle mass and to shred body fat while maintaining lean muscle. BCAAs do work when used properly! Those who are cutting calories would want to ingest BCAAs because muscle loss will occur during this phase. The BCAAs will increase the protein synthesis and reduce protein breakdown. (myprotein.com) Jack Crabtree states, “BCAAs are incredibly beneficial to take pre-workout during a fast to fuel your muscles, giving you energy and encouraging them to grow whilst you burn fat!”
The great news is BCAAs are not harmful! [consult your doctor prior to taking any supplements and always listen to your body] Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing as the saying goes!! Be moderate and balanced in all aspects of your life: mental, physical and spiritual health. Remember, just because you’re taking a supplement does not mean, it is a cure-all. Some believe that taking a pill, drinking protein, using BCAAs, or taking vitamins one time will do the trick to reaching your goals. This is a lifestyle change guys! Research the facts before doing anything or putting anything into your body!
