    So are BCAA's still worth it to take?

    Hi bros and sis, I have been searching online for supps over the counter since I want to start a cutting cycle again all natural, I was interested in BCAA's but I have seen many post online saying they are shitty today and expensive piss. It seems like protein makers got whey down to really small aminos so BCAAs are a waste. Okay so I might skip on those, what's your opinion on this guys? do you still use them? or it's better and just go with a healthy diet and training with discipline? thanks.

    Whey protein supplements and BCAA supplements are very different.

    BCAAs are the amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. They are free form amino acids that don't require digestion. They are rapidly absorbed as soon as they reach the intestines. This makes them optimal to supplement with immediately before/during/after your workout. The amino acid L-leucine also directly signals protein synthesis through the mtor pathway.

    Whey protein is a milk derived whole protein source. It is basically just a protein supplement to help you meet your daily dietary protein requirements. Since whey protein is a complete protein source (just like all animal protein sources) it contains all the essential amino acids. There are 8 essential amino acids and BCAAs are 3 of them. However, whey protein needs to be digested by the body in order to break the protein down into individual amino acids.

    Truthfully, you dont need BCAA if you are eating a high protein diet but they are a good supplement to take. Especially before things like fasted cardio because they are very anti-catabolic. A good BCAA dosage before fasted cardio is 5-10g. Just make sure to read the ingredients carefully because a lot of the flavoured BCAA products on the market have a lot of added sugar and carbohydrates per serving. This will blunt the fat loss response that you would of gotten from the cardio other wise. I personally use the capsulated BCAA product gear from n2bm.com.

    you aren't going to get big off BCAA's.

    I don't need to type out a long response to explain why, just go ask the bigger dudes in your gym and find out what they take. the secret to getting big is knowing how to eat, knowing how to train, and yes having good genetics. you can't pop some BCAA's everyday and magically grow muscle. essentially you are wasting your money and should instead spend that money on better food choices.

    Hard training and healthy diet with discipline will always be the #1 reason for your gains, whether you use BCAAs or not.

    They are good and they have their own time and space. Usually its for people who train fasted in the morning (without eating breakfast). In other cases its for competitive bodybuilders who are on very low calories and need to get BCAAs additionally to keep their muscles safe from catabolism.

    For an simple average joe, BCAAs are kinda useless and Id rather suggest to invest the money into food.

    BCAA are really good if you train fasted or eat a lower protein diet. It will help prevent catabolism in those cases. In the end you want a good BCAA product that is not filled with extra ingredients. When cutting the last thing you want is sugar, and more calories. I would rather just get GEAR which is a great product from N2BM. It is also in tablet form which makes it easy to take and does not have any added ingredients.
