BCAAs for recovery

Hello ladies! I don't use supplements but I'm thinking about getting BCAAs (branch chain amino acid) to take after my surgery. The BCAA help with muscle recovery and I'm going under the muscle and my thought is this will help with recover, is that smart or crazy? I've used supplements like this in the past when I've competed in bodybuilding but wanted a second (or 3rd or 4th or 5th) opinion. Thanks!

Hi there, I take BCAAs regularly (especially after workouts) and yes they ARE awesome for recovery....HOWEVER, you need to clear ANYTHING you take with your PS prior to taking them.

I brought in all of my supplement bottles to my pre-op appt and to my surgery for him to read labels and "approve/deny" everything.

I had to stop taking just about everything 2 weeks prior to surgery and couldn't take anything 2 week post op. This included vitamin D, fish oil, pre workout, BCAA's, magnesium/potassium/calcium supplement...the only thing i was able to take was my vitamin C and bromelien.

There could be compounds in these that increase bleeding (via increased blood flow which is how BCAA's help with recovery) or slow healing times.So its imperitive you bring the actual product you plan on using so he can see whats actually in them.
