      • December 12, 2014 Branch Chain Amino Acid (BCAAs); The Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine

        Branch Chain Amino Acids also known as (BCAAs) are indispensable amino acids whose carbon structures are marked at branched points. They are contained mainly in protein rich foods and make up three out of the eight essential amino acids; Valine, Isoleucine and Leucine. The BCAAs; leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, make up about 1/3 of the muscle protein. They stimulate the protein muscle building and possibly reduce muscle breakdown. BCAAs also play a vital role to prevent faulty message transmission in the brain cells.

      • December 05, 2014 Different Types of Omegas; 3, 6, and 9 Fatty Acids

        Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids are composed of chains of hydrogen, carbon and oxygen atoms. The different between them lie in the molecular configuration, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. They are typically derived from fish and plant oils, and are relatively free from side effect. So, what exactly are omegas 3, 6 and 9? Why are they important?

        Omega-3 fatty acids

        Omega-3 is a type of polyunsaturated fat, consisting of alpha-linolenic acid, decosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid. They are essential because the body cannot manufacture these three acids. You must obtain them from food such as nut, fish and plant-based oils.

        Proteins provide essential amino acids in the body, which serve as the building blocks for the new muscle formation, but not all protein diets are equal. The two milk proteins, whey and casein, are excellent sources of all the essential amino acids. However, the difference between these two proteins are determined on the basis of their chemical properties.

      • November 23, 2014 The Truth about Carbohydrates Supplements for Athletes

        Many studies show that sportsmen and women burn a lot of calories, much more than the ordinary people. Michael Phelps, who did wonders in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, linked his success to taking 12,000 calories a day. (http://www.npr.org/ how-many-calories-do-Olympics-athletes-need). The average person requires just 1,600 to 3,000 calories daily. In highly competitive sports such as the Superbowl, the Olympics and the World Series, participants need a lot of energy.

        Athletes need stamina and perfect body fitness all the time. Carbohydrates supplements are an important part of an athletes’ diet because they are the primary source of the energy required during rehearsals and competitions. However, carbohydrates are classified into simple and complex carbs, and a person taking the supplements must know the carbs that help to maintain body fitness.
