Protein and BCAA

Protein and BCAA Broken Down

Talk to any bodybuilder about supplements and the topic of BCAA’s (Branched Chain Amino Acids) and Protein will come up very quickly… but what do they do and how do they work?

  1. Should women take protein and BCAAs?
  2. What are BCAA’s and why are they important to take?
  3. What about other amino acids like glutamine and citrulline malate?
  4. What about Vegan protein?
  5. Isn’t eating chicken good enough?
  6. Can I have too much protein?
  7. Is soy protein bad for me?
  8. What is the difference between Whey, Whey Isolated, and Whey Hydrolized
  9. What are essential amino acids?
  10. What are difference between brands? (taste, toxins, dissolvability, cramping.) We only sell two brands of protein Metrx and Sunwarrior.  Vastly different proteins, but both represent two of the best protein you can buy in their respective markets.
