“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.

So we know that amino acids are organic compounds that serve as the building blocks for proteins. We know that some amino acids are considered “essential,” because the body cannot make them on its own.

But how do they help us lose fat and lean out? Continue reading Lean and Tone with Aminos

If your lymphatic system or adrenal glands get burned out due to environmental stressors, poor food choices (i.e. Halloween candy), or excessive use of stimulants, your body won’t be functioning in optimal condition, and that IS going to put a hamper on your upcoming holidays.

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.
