acids are the building blocks of proteins. They include essential amino acids, which the body cannot produce on its own, or
non-essential aminos, which the body can produce endogenously. They can all be adequately gleaned from the protein we ingest,
but may be supplemented cheaply and conveniently.
Branched Chain Amino Acids
BCAA’s include Leusine, Isoleucine, and Valine. They are
most critical to protein synthesis. They occur naturally in both animal and vegetable protein sources, but may be cost effectively
supplemented as well.
Essential Amino Acids
Essential aminos are critical to protein synthesis but cannot be produced by the body. They must be taken from an outside
source. Not to worry. If you are taking in 300 plus grams of protein each day you will surely get plenty. They can also be
cheaply and naturally supplemented and are abundantly present in all whey, egg or soy protein powders.
Time-Release Protein Supplements
This is ordinarily taken at night. Normally you would only go 1-3 hours between protein feedings under ideal conditions.
At night, however, you can either choose a time-release protein or set your alarm to avoid losing mass in the later hours
of your sleep.
Fear not. Though convenient, expensive, time-release nighttime protein products are not altogether necessary.
The manufacturers try to lose you in their jargon- nocturnal anticatabolic protein supplement. This is nothing more
than a fancy word for a bedtime snack; don’t let yourself get fooled into thinking it is anything more.
