I’m currently taking Protein, CEE, Multi-vitamin and Fish Oil and am looking to add something else to aid with recovery etc.
I’m considering either BCAA or ZMA and I’m just wondering what your opinions are as to which would provide the most benefit for the money.
The rationale for ZMA is that most hard training athletes are deficient in zinc and magnesium which can inhibit natural testosterone production.
By supplementing with it you are creating a more favorable environment for your body to produce test and your are boosting your immune function as well.
BCAA’s as stated in the thread for it are the essential building blocks of muscle. By using them you are keeping your body in a highly anabolic muscle building state. This will kick recovery into high gear and put on muscle and decrease soreness.
You should try to budget for both especially since they are both extremely affordable here at T-Nation.
