What are BCAAs and why are they so vital for a successful keto diet?
It’s no secret that early into a keto diet it can be tough transitioning into ketosis. Especially if you’re accustomed to eating a higher carbohydrate diet and suddenly cut them completely out of your diet.
One easy keto hack is sipping on XTEND Original BCAAs.
BCAAs or Branched Chain Amino Acids are essential amino acids that play an important role in muscle protein synthesis and recovery. If you’re just starting a keto diet or struggling with staying in ketosis, here are some ways XTEND Original can help you out.
1.) Zero Sugar, Zero Carb, Craving Crushers
It can be challenging finding foods to satisfy your sweet tooth that aren’t loaded with sugar. This is especially true if you’ve traditionally relied on higher sugar foods to satisfy these cravings. Whether you want to replace sugary drinks or attack sweet tooth cravings, XTEND Original comes in clutch. XTEND Original comes in a variety of fresh fruity flavors that taste amazing and make it easy to drink water. Best of all, they’re made without sugar, carbohydrates, or artificial flavors.
2.) Hydrating Electrolytes
You’ve probably heard of the “keto flu”, this occurs for some people early into a keto diet as their bodies begin to flush out electrolytes and water. The symptoms associated with the keto flu are no fun, these can include nausea, headaches, dizziness, and muscle cramping. An important way to stay ahead of this is by providing your body with key electrolytes like those found in XTEND Original, electrolytes support vital functions in your body to help you stay hydrated and perform at your best.
3.) Decrease Soreness
Some people that are used to having a higher carbohydrate meal after workouts complain about feeling a little more soreness when they first drop carbohydrates from their diet. Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) can leave you in pain and disrupt your daily routine. When you consume enough BCAAs in your diet you can help reduce DOMS. Reduce DOMS and speed up your recovery time with a scientifically studied dose of 7 grams of BCAA found in XTEND, higher than most brands, so you can get back to the gym faster.
4.) Support Muscle Recovery
