🌿✨Are supplements needed? Specifically do vegans need BCAAs. 🌿✨
✨There are many forms of supplements, such as protein powder, BCAAs, Pre Workout, etc.
Today I will be talking about BCAAs. BCAAs are known as Branched Chained Amino Acids. Amino acids are the building blocks to make protein in your body. Proteins function to break down food in your body, allows your body to grow and repair body tissue.✨
✨Amino acids come in 9 essential forms in the body which are required for you to have to grow whilst training. When you train, youre continously breaking down muscle fibres. It is the food you consume afterwards that help build these muscle fibres back again, potentially bigger and stronger. ✨
✨For vegans, people often assume that we dont get the essential amino acids. But thats not true, we do. Leucine specifically is the most dominant amino acids and comes high in chickpeas, lentils, quinoa and tofu specifically.
So supplements are there supplement your diet, not replace foods. They are there to help gain maximum levels of substances your body requires. In terms of BCAAs and whether you really need it. The supplementation of it allows you to maximally stimulate protein synthesis, but really if you are eating whole, natural foods and enough of it, you will meet the requirements your body needs.✨
