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

Since we don’t plow the fields and milk the cows each day anymore, we have become a modern, industrialized society of sitting. Most of the population spends 10+ hours in the day just sitting, whether we are working in front of a computer, checking messages on our phone, eating meals with friends, or lounging in front of the TV. Of course in an ideal world, all of us would have the time to go to the gym for an hour each day, but if you get too busy and have to skip a day, here’s a few suggestions to get just a little more movement out of each day.

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.
