What do BCAAs actually do?
Today I want to talk about the correlation between a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) supplementation and hormones. Do BCAAs create an anabolic environment?
Training causes big-time stress in the form of continuous damage to muscle tissue. The body reacts to this by increasing its production of the muscle-destroying hormone cortisol and reducing its production of testosterone. So could you do something about this by providing the muscles with the amino acids they need most? As it turns out, research suggests that BCAAs not only stimulate muscle growth but also create an anabolic hormonal environment in the body.Read More
