Optimizing my morning nutrition with...
Xtend BCAAs and a cup of Bulletproof coffee
Xtend BCAAs: The intake of BCAAs reduces muscle breakdown and increases protein synthesis.
Supplementing with BCAA’s saturates your muscles to provide adequate muscle energy and an anabolic environment.
Tip: supplement with BCAA’s upon waking, during workouts and just before bed, to promote muscle synthesis and to facilitate recovery. Notice: you don't even need a shaker cup because Xtend is of such high quality that it mixes easily with just a glass and spoon! Unmatched mixability!
Next Up: Bulletproof Coffee...I truly feel that it boosts my energy and mental focus and also keeps my appetite level for hours in the morning. The collagen protein that I add is supportive to skin, bone and joint health. As compared to cream, the GRASS FED Ghee Butter has more butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid that possesses anti-inflammatory properties, and some research has shown it can promote brain function and gut health. Butter also has more vitamins, such as A, D, and K2, than cream and is lower in sugar. If you're active and eat a healthy, balanced diet, adding a little fat like that in Bulletproof coffee is perfectly acceptable and it might just give you a bit more energy than your everyday cup. Side Tangent: Demonizing dietary cholesterol and fat was one of the worst mistakes of the mainstream health and fitness industry.
NOTE: I recommend grass fed butter over butter from grain fed cows.
Try it! I was hesitant for several years and dismissed it as hype and now I can't go a morning without it!
