Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and help support muscle endurance during training sessions, boost muscle recovery post-workout, and make sure you look jacked year round even as you cut. There are twenty amino acids total, and nine of those are essential to the human body meaning they can't be synthesized and produced naturally by the body. Instead, they must be sourced externally through eating protein-rich foods like eggs, fish, and of course meat. However, amino acid supplements are an easy and tasty way to get amino acids throughout the day as well.
Most commonly you'll hear aminos referred to as BCAAs, or branched chain amino acids because those are the most popular aminos and refer to the essential amino acids isoleucine, valine, and leucine. Your muscles primarily use these aminos for growth and cover most of your bases in one shot. Amino acids have a phenomenal anti-catabolic function that prevents muscle breakdown and boosts the body's rate of protein synthesis simultaneously leaving you with the perfect mixture of sustaining and increasing lean muscle mass.
Amino acids are safe to take daily and typically come in pill or powder form. Powder form come in a variety of flavors and are the most common. For men, the recommended dosage of BCAA's in particular, is 15 to 20 grams a day, and 3 to 5 for women. These can be taken all at once in one shake or spread across your pre, intra, and post workout shake.
