ARE BCAA’s USELESS?
▪️BCAA’s (Branched Chain Amino Acids) are compounds that form chains (polypeptides) in order to create proteins in the body. As we all know, protein is essential for muscle growth and repair.
▪️However, supplementing with BCAA’s are useless once you examine what’s in the supplement vs what you’re already consuming. After you eat a meal that has protein in it, your body will shift into an anabolic state where it rebuilds the muscle broken down after a workout, given the meal contained all 9 essential amino acids.
▪️So putting more BCAA’s into your body won’t really do anything. Besides, only taking in 3 of the 9 amino acids is not optimal either.
▪️Save your money on something that works like getting your aminos from real food or a meal program.
