Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein and a key part of every human cell. There are 20 amino acids in total, split into essential (must be acquired from food) and non-essential (can be made by the body).
Then you have the 3 Branch Chain Amino Acids. BCAAs can help increase muscle size and strength, and enhance recovery by promoting protein synthesis, preserving lean body mass during times of strenuous exercise. They are near vital to use if you are on a diet and looking to hold onto as muscle muscle as possible.
Supplementation can help achieve the right balance and T-Nutrition is here to help with a variety of products to optimise healthy protein maintenance.
