Bcaas?

Branched Chain Amino Acids are in a lot of the foods we eat.

 

I've seen the claim by various individuals that it helps in the building and maintenance of lean muscle mass. The more BCAAs in your diet the more "happy" your body will be with maintaining its current mass and the less your body will use your muscle tissue as fuel.

 

Especially important are leucine, isoleucine, valine, and glutamine.

 

I'm no expert. Just my 02.

IMO not really. But then you're asking someone who thinks supplementing anything not essential to your health isn't really that natural.

 

Others probably feel differently. I've definitely had that discussion with meat eating bodybuilders! haha

 

But if you still want to try it I don't see the harm.

I do a pea/rice protein blend which has a great amino acid profile but I also take Xtend. I upped my dose to what is recommend on the bottle and I am not sure if it's me or the Xtend but I feel like I have been recovering better over the past few days.

 

Plus it tastes really good.
