How should you use it?
There are essentially two ways to supplement with BCAAs:
Method 1: Take them in between meals. Most meals contain at least some protein, which means they contain at least some BCAAs. Thus, after eating a protein-containing meal, your blood BCAA level rises, as does muscle protein synthesis. This is good news from a muscle-building standpoint. Eventually, however, your blood BCAA level starts to fall, as does muscle protein synthesis. The idea behind supplementing with BCAAs in between meals is to prevent this. Over time, this is believed to encourage greater gains in lean muscle and enhance recovery.
Method 2: Take them with meals. The idea behind taking BCAAs with a meal is to “maximize” muscle protein synthesis, just in case the meal itself wasn’t enough (i.e. it didn’t contain enough BCAAs) to do so.
Which method is best, 1 or 2? Both can work, though we think Method 1 makes the most sense.
Having a protein shake like Vintage Brawn™ after you lift weights helps stimulate muscle protein synthesis, and thereby promote muscle growth and recovery. Since Classic BCAA provides similar benefits, it is better suited for use in between meals, when muscle protein synthesis tends to be the lowest.
Taking BCAAs before and/or after cardio can help preserve lean muscle and enhance recovery. Keep in mind that if you’re looking to actually gain muscle, then you’ll need to be doing plenty of resistance exercise, i.e. lifting weights.
Any time you lose body fat on a calorie-reduced diet, you’re almost certain to lose muscle alongside. Taking Classic BCAA and a high-quality protein like Vintage Brawn will help you protect, and even enhance, your lean muscle while you melt off the fat on top.
