“So what supplements do you take?” This is often how we decide for ourselves what supplements we should take – a stratagem that’s based strictly on another person’s results, lifestyle, and nutrition choices, let alone their personal health history. The decision of what supplements you should take should be based on your OWN health history, your unique lifestyle, and above all, your personal health and fitness goals, not someone else’s.

What Are BCAAs?
BCAAs are branched chain amino acids that consist of three essential amino acids comprising nearly 1/3 of skeletal muscle in the body and play a major role in protein synthesis. Why are they essential? They are essential because the body cannot produce them and must get them from an outside source. BCAAs are metabolized in the muscles, have potent anabolic and tissue sparing qualities, decrease recovery time, and increase rate at which lean body mass is gained. Plus, they yield metabolic by-products that boost energy production. The 3 essential amino acids are L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine.

The best offense is a good defense. Supply your body with the nutrients it needs to build up its immune system, the real power to fight off any disease.

Why Do I Need a Multi-Vitamin?
The majority of Americans do not have a good diet. According to the USDA, only 10% of Americans have a “good diet.” Americans have continually failed to meet the RDA for several key nutrients, including calcium, vitamin E, vitamin B6, magnesium, and zinc. Other research shows that more than half of all Americans consume significantly less than the recommended intake for calcium, chromium, copper, folic acid, vitamin B6 & vitamin E. The rest needs improvement. For example, only 17% of the people consumed the recommended number of servings of fruit per day. In short, we cannot get all of the nutrients that we need on a daily basis through consumption of healthy foods, let alone the average American diet.
