BCAAs for Huge Massive Muscles
The description "super food" gets tossed around quite often and a bit too liberally for my taste in fitness and bodybuilding circles.
Many of the things that have been described as "super foods" in the recent past, like say
raspberries for example, are quite good for you, but "super"?
But one food ingredient that is available as a nutritional supplement which doesn't get its props from mainstream sources as much, but truly does deserve the super food label is the aminoacid combination BCAAs or more specifically branched chain amino acids.
BCAAs Power and Energy Building Aminoacids
BCAAs is the active part at energy and power building, also at regeneration after your daily workout.Since most high quality whey proteins contain lots of bcaas, this is not the same as the full free for of this amino acid. (In a protein, the aminoacids are not free form, they are together in very long molecules, this make this kind of source not so fast and not so good, as the free form amino acid. Also the natural amino acid profile of bcaas in all proteine meets not the needs of your body – they are always in a amount that work not well together)
Now full free form bcaas are available
In highly pure forms perfect as a health and muscular mass
supplement. In the ideal amount of each aminoacid build together in
BCAAs in the ideal 2:1:1 ratio are the three branched-chain amino acids BCAA's (branched chain Amiono acid) L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine, in free singular form.
BCAA's (branched chain Amiono acid) are the main free amino acids, which improved muscle build-up with a lesser reduction in muscle (anabolic and anti-catabolic) and later fatigue during endurance exercise are known.
They belong to the essential amino acids, so can not be produced by the body, but must be fed daily with your food intake.

The three proteinogenic BCAAs are among the nine essential amino acids for humans, accounting for 35% of the essential amino acids in muscle proteins and 40% of the preformed amino acids required by humans
BCAA supplementation has been used clinically to aid in the recovery of burn victims. A 2006 paper suggests that the concept of nutrition supplemented with all BCAAs
for burns, trauma, and sepsis should be abandoned for a more promising leucine-only-supplemented nutrition that requires further evaluation.
BCAAs have been used in an attempt to treat some cases of hepatic encephalopathy.
They can have the effect of alleviating symptoms, but there is no evidence they benefit mortality rates, nutrition or overall quality of life
BCAAs as a dietary supplement are used widely in bodybuilding.Bodybuilders make claims about the effectiveness of using BCAAs to aid recovery after a workout.
These claims from bodybuilders include physical stamina and prolonged mental as well as a
