Food and Weight: An Ongoing Journey

Archive for the ‘Product Reviews’ Category


NOTE: I received this product as part of a product test.

As most of you know, I’ve been in cardiac rehab for most of the summer. This product is designed to help people with their workouts, so I figured I would see if it had an effect on mine.

Branch chain amino acids are essential in building protein in muscles. The contents of this particular formulation of branched-chain amino acids includes L-Isoleucine, L-Leucine,and L-Valine. What makes it different from many other formulations though is what it doesn’t have. Completely vegetarian, it excludes additives, artificial ingredients, binders, eggs, excipients, fillers, gluten, preservatives, soy, starch, sugar, or wheat. The serving is two capsules, and the recommended times to take this supplement is either 45 minutes before a workout, immediately after a workout, or between meals. According to the packaging, they can also be taken any time the body needs an extra fuel boost.

So, did I find it had an effect? Yes, I did. I had better recovery times from my sessions, and even seemed to have more energy going about my day – although I am still nowhere near where my brain says I should be, but I know that recovery from open heart surgery is not just a six-month quick thing. ┬áStill, I am making progress, and I honestly can say that I feel this product has made a positive difference in that progress over the last month. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
