New and exciting research is still being conducted on BCAAs and their applications to muscle growth, fat loss, and performance. There are not many supplements in existence that have the ability to affect growth and performance through as many different pathways as BCAAs. While BCAAs have proven benefits as a building block of muscle tissue, their benefits as signaling molecules are truly just being understood. In time BCAAs may just prove to be the most valuable supplement at our disposal. So the next time someone accuses you of being just another meathead talking about protein all the time, you can show them that it is more than just eating plates of chicken and beef…it’s science!
I would like some feedback on my stack please I am currently trying to cut fat and to e and build muscle.

Two hours later another protein shake. I workout at 530pm at5pm I take my second oxy elite and eat some type of carb like an apple or some trail mix and a tablespoon of l carnitine. For my workout I lift weights and spend 30 min on the elliptical. Post workout i take another tablespoon of l carnitine and I drink a whey isolate drink. For dinner I would have something like grilled chicken broccoli and black beans. I track everything on MFP. Do you have any suggestions or comments I would like to get to 19%body fat
Every product class has its individual flaws — flavored powders are mostly gushing with artificial sweeteners and dyes; unflavored powders taste utterly repulsive; and if you’re taking BCAAs in capsule form, you’ll need to down 10+ pills just to get an adequate dose. We recommend taking a flavored powder that sits on the natural end of the spectrum. Unflavored varieties are REALLY hard to stomach. Like, I-need-to-vomit-everywhere bad. But hey, if you’re game, it’s a healthier route (try tossing a scoop in a glass of OJ, or anything else acidic).
