I AM CONFUSED WITH ALL THESE ADD-ONS TO BE BOUGHT WITH WHEY PROTEIN HAVING FANCY NAMES AS BCAA, CITRULLINE, GLUTAMINE, CREATINE AND SO ON?admin
Proteins are chains of amino acids which are 20 in number. Of these 9 are Essential Amino acids which are not made by the body and need to be ingested by way of diet / supplementation. 3 of these 9, namely leucine, isoleucine and valine are the BCAA or Branched Chain Amino Acids
. These are critical and essential for muscle repair and toning. Unless mandated by a very vigorous exercise regimen the others need to be consumed judiciously under expert advice. Most protein powders in the market are adequate in terms of BCAA, either naturally occurring or added.
