3 Delicious BCAA Treat Recipes!
Feeling sore? Looking for new ways to enjoy your muscle-building BCAAs? Mix up your aminos with these incredibly tasty, oh-so-easy recipes!
Feeling sore or tired during your workouts? It might not be a matter of overworking, but of under-recovery! The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine, and valine can help. They may help prevent muscle breakdown, can function as an energy source, and may even help reduce exercise-related soreness. They're great on their own, but they're also incredibly versatile in drink recipes!
If you're looking for a new and refreshing way to get your daily dose of muscle-building amino acids, you're in the right place. Try these sweet recipes that help serve up the taste of summer even during those cool, fall months!
