Use Of Supplements To Accelerate Recovery Of Diseased Muscles?
Hello wr wb and good morning. R n r nDo I have been in fitness for less than 2 months. Well after that I felt my body was very tired and painful or usually in terms of fitness DOMS. Now one of my friends who is a professional has advised me to take BCAA supplements (Branched Chain Amino Acid) and super amino supplements which are said to accelerate the recovery of diseased or damaged muscles and make muscles grow faster. Is that really the case ??? If that’s the benefit, is it safe if I consume it ?? I am a teenager who is 19 years old. And if it’s safe what is the recommended dosage for me to consume ??. R n r nAnd are there any side effects in the use of the supplement ?? r n r nAt attention and the answer later, I say thank you. r n r nWassalamualaikum wr wb and good morning
Hello Akbar, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
BCAA or branch-chain amino acids are nutrients that are obtained by the body from protein in food, for example from meat, milk, nuts. BCAA itself consists of the amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAA supplementation is used medically to treat encephalopathy in liver disease, anorexia in patients with liver disease, kidney failure, or certain cancers, and disorders of muscle movement due to tardive dyskinesia.
BCAA is often given also to improve athlete performance, reduce fatigue, increase concentration, and reduce muscle destruction during high-intensity sports. Some studies show that BCAA can reduce fatigue due to exercise and reduce muscle aches after exercise (due to muscle destruction), but several other studies have different results (so this benefit itself is still controversial). BCAA has not been proven to increase strength, endurance, and speed in sports performance.
This supplement is safe enough for consumption, but because research on the use of BCAA to improve sports performance is still controversial, there is no recommended dosage for this condition. You can consume according to the recommended dosage in your BCAA supplement packaging, make sure you buy supplements that are of guaranteed quality and are registered with BPOM.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
