Do I need to have BCAA’s?
Answer: Yes, you absolutely need to consume BCAA’s or Branched Chain Amino Acids. They are critical to your muscle tissue as well as most other tissues in your body.
What is the best way to get BCAA’s?
Answer: Eat your protein. Protein is, by itself, a substantial source of BCAA’s and no further supplementation is required nor helpful. Eating sufficient protein is a cornerstone of tracking macronutrients. You get all the BCAA’s and EAA’s you need in your meals.
Do BCAA’s help with energy and recovery?
Answer: BCAA’s, nor protein, aid in any feeling of recovery, added perceivable energy (beyond the calories consumed) nor any other of the fancy terms thrown about by the marketing press. They are merely a small but essential part of protein as a whole and work silently to build various tissues in the body.
