Are they necessary? Nope. Are they worth your money? Yes, but honestly only if you don’t have a sufficient amount of protein in your diet already/a good diet in general. If you’re not comfortable with taking supplements, some foods that are high in leucine (the strongest of all 3) are: fish, chicken, beef, soybeans, cheese, nuts, seeds, beans, etc.
Although there is quite the controversy on BCAAS (and honestly on all supplements bc people will always find flaws), I do find them helpful.
In the long run, they are effective in helping repair and build new muscle tissue. BCAAS are also easier/more convenient to take than eating a meal. With all being said; I always recommend getting your essential nutrients from food & diet. Supplements come second and should be here to aid/enhance your diet (not replace it!)
Let me know if you like these kinds of videos and if you’d want more! ps. @ansperformance has a delicious flavour of BCAAS with 3600mg of leucine & 1800mg of both isoleucine & valine.yum.
