Health Tip Of The Day: BCAAs can help you with your gains and recovery. Here’s how to up your intake.

What Are BCAA’s?

We’ll spare you a complicated scientific explanation and sum it up. Branched-chain amino acids are a group of three essential amino acids that can’t be produced by your body, so getting them from your diet is essential to reap their health rewards. BCAA’s are found in protein-rich foods like beef, chicken breast, whey, soy, tuna, salmon and eggs.

Why Do We Need Them?

The benefits of BCAA’s are robust. These essential amino acids help you build muscle, decrease post-workout aches, reduce exercise fatigue, prevent you from losing your hard-earned gains and even benefit people with liver disease. While some prefer to mix a BCAA supplement powder into their workout water bottle, you can get adequate amounts of these aminos through diet alone. [Healthline]
