Supplements or steroids, your desi gym coach will try trading you everything. If you are slender, he’ll shove a mass gainer down your throat. If you are overweight, he’ll hand over a fat reducer. And for god’s sake, if you a Hrithik Roshan wannabe, you’ll end up consuming oral drugs more than food.
BCAA (Branched Chain Of Amino Acids)
If your protein consumption is on point i.e. 1.5-2g as per body weight, you do not need BCAAs. The key amino acids that this supplement gives are leucine, isoleucine and valine.
Glutamine is not a required supplement and especially if you are taking it with an intention to pack on muscle mass. The human figure itself produces glutamine, and that is the reason it is reflected a conditionally essential supplement.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
CLA is a non-stimulant fat burner. Imagine what; this supplement hardly hurts any fat. CLA is naturally produced in the human body and can be inferred from dairy and animal proteins, externally. CLA as a fat burner is blank but just a placebo. Create a calorie deficit if your goal is fat loss. That works way better.
Zinc Magnesium Aspartate (ZMA)
ZMA grows testosterone, enhances muscle mass and increases sleep quality. All these are obvious lies! According to research, increasing with ZMA shows almost zero effects on your testosterone and muscle mass.
