It goes without saying – good nutrition is the key to achieving good health and well-being. In an ideal world, we would all get this required nutrition fully from our diet. However, the reality is that often we neglect having nutritious food intake and practising a healthy lifestyle. Hence, diet intake alone may not be enough for your nutritional needs. This is where dietary supplements can come in and help fill the missing gaps.

Today, it is common knowledge that athletes are big believers in protein – from any source – to build and maintain muscle mass. After all, muscles are made of protein and so augmenting your diet with extra protein would surely be beneficial for muscle growth.

Our body needs The Big Three macronutrients – protein, carbs, and fats to carry out the day-to-day physical activities. While attaining a perfect balance between these macros is crucial to ensure your body receives wholesome nutrition, the intake proportion of the macronutrients varies depending on the type and intensity of the activity level that you are engaging in. The macro percentages for strength training, for example, differ somewhat from those for endurance runners. Hence, for athletes and active individuals, calculating the right balance of macronutrients is crucial as it can impact their training and sports performance.
Amino acids are the building blocks that our body uses to make all proteins. There are nine essential amino acids, three of which are the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs): leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
