Are there any supplements that act as an alternative to steroids?

Q. I am a professional athlete. Are there any legal and natural supplements that act as an alternative to steroids?

Yes there are.

Called branched chain amino acids (BCAA's), these are compound of leucine, valine and isoleucine.

Considered natural anabolic muscle-building supplements, they are a principal source of calories for the human muscle, especially effective during an intense workout.

BCAAs can also reduce the appetite while producing glycogen which balances insulin secretion.

More importantly, it promotes lean muscle mass and distribution.

Supplements should be taken 30 minutes before a workout.
