We've made it to our BCAAs!
It's time to boost our muscle growth, kill the fatigue from our high volume training and enhance our overall performance levels!
I mean, who wouldn't want all of that, right?
We've been making our way through the Top Supplement options here at SHJ, and a lot of people are now asking for The Top BCAA Supplements on the market.
And that's essentially to add it into my day whenever I feel I need an extra kick in the butt.
With BCAAs I generally add it in for a few day span where-as it's not really like pre-workout with the caffeine kick you're getting, but nevertheless I do see it as a similar functionality for my own supplement stack.
But, okay, before we get ahead of ourselves, let's grab a definition for BCAAs and discuss what they actually are.
Healthline explains BCAAs as such:
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine.
BCAA supplements are commonly taken in order to boost muscle growth and enhance exercise performance. They may also help with weight loss and reduce fatigue after exercise.
And, to clear things up: BCAAs don't HAVE to be used the way I use them, and actually, if you're following our intermittent fasting protocol we love to use in our programs like The Superhuman System: BCAAs and fasting are actually a match made in heaven.
Here's another big point Healthline gives us to sell you (and me, actually) on using BCAAs: "Your body can use BCAAs to build muscle protein and produce energy. They may also have an effect on your brain that reduces fatigue."
How I'm Ranking The Best BCAA Supplements On The Market:
- The Most Effective BCAA Supplement Powder
- By “most effective” I mean I’ll be also taking a look at the ingredients and making sure they’re up to par. If not, they’re immediately off the list.
- The Best Bang For Your Buck
- Yes, there can be "better" mass gainer powders than other, but that does not mean one powder should be insanely expensive compared to the others; a big component of this ranking will be based on getting the most out of our hard earned dollars.
- The Best Taste
- Let's be honest: we all care about this part. If we're going to be drinking it every single day, we want it to taste good. So this will be a deciding factor on the placement among The Top BCAA Supplements as well.
THE TOP BCAA SUPPLEMENTS
XTEND Original BCAA
XTEND has always been my go-to BCAA and it has never let me down once.
It hits all three categories of price, effectiveness and taste, so it's an absolute no brainer if you're looking for a BCAA supplement to add to your lineup.
MusclePharm Essential BCAA Powder
MusclePharm's BCAA Powder come in at $14.99 for a 30 serving container and only $22.99 for a 60 serving container making them a clear winner among a known brand in the supplement industry.
BPI Best BCAA Supplement
Many of you likely know I'm also a fan of BPI. They always come in at a low and affordable price while providing a great and tasty product.
I don't personally think they're THE BEST product, but they're good enough to make the top five in the BCAA category!
REDCON1 Breach BCAAs
I'm slowly becoming a fan of REDCON1, but they still aren't my number one choice being that I already have my "go-to" options to rely on.
That being said, they have some fun flavors and they make a great product at a very reasonable price!
Optimum Nutrition BCAA Capsules
Twenty six dollars for TWO HUNDRED SERVINGS!
I always like to give an alternative option for each of our supplements (that being a capsule form), and Optimum Nutrition is a CLEAR winner in this category almost every single time.
Not only am I an ON fanboy, but their price points are unbeatable for their amazing product.
That’s a wrap.
Either way, get out there and begin unleashing your inner superhuman!
