Why you should consider adding amino acids to your supplement stack
Amino acids are a popular supplement in the fitness world. If you have been looking at implementing an amino acid supplement to your routine but unsure on why or which to choose, this blog should help you make a final decision.
What are Amino Acids
Amino Acids are often referred to as the building blocks of protein as Amino Acids are the molecules that form proteins. When proteins are broken down or digested, the body uses Amino Acids to make proteins. The body can use Amino Acids as a source of energy and there are different types of Amino acids with some being essential Amino Acids and non-essential Amino Acids.
How to take Amino Acids
Amino Acid supplements can be taken in many ways. If you are using a powdered form, they can be mixed with water, Post workout shakes and Intra-workout shakes. If you are using a flavoured BCAA mixing it with water is usually the preferred option. To mix your BCAA it may be useful to get yourself a shaker, these can be found on the Warrior website. If you are someone who would rather take your BCAA's in tablet form, this is also an option. It just comes down to personal preference on how you would like to take them as they both have the same benefits.
