If you own, for example, a home recumbent bike, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard BCAA can help you prolong cardio sessions and can help with recovery, helping the user train more often and with more intensity, in the end burning more calories, and thus losing more fats.
If you are a gym addict, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard BCAA can help you make more reps and series, even lift more weights - just be sure that whatever you do, you stay safe.
So, next time prior to your workout, just add a serving of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard BCAA in a fully dry protein shaker/bottle and take it with you. At the beginning of your workout session, add some water, shake it, and a lightly flavored refreshing beverage is ready.
Amounts of vitamin C, magnesium, sodium, and potassium are modest, to say the least, however, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard BCAAs are not intended to be used as the principal source of these micronutrients - well designed and balanced nutrition is the foundation for any sporting success, with proper supplementation just building on top of that.
Some people try to 'improve' BCAA powders like these by adding some fast carbs for energy, C vitamin powder, they take B vitamins complex tablets before workouts, etc.
All these actions make sense, of course, but 'Keep It Simple&Stupid' (famous KISS principle) - if you need something to help you endure your workouts, try this supplement, add it to your shaker (dry shaker!) and add water when you need it ... And that is all...
