What’s the difference between protein and amino acids?

Question:

I am definitely a hardgainer. I’m considering taking some sort of supplement, but don’t want to pour a ton of cash into it.

Would you recommend I take a protein shake supplement after workouts or amino acid pills?

Thanks,
Trev

Answer:

Trev,

Just stick with the protein shakes. Protein is made up of amino acids. In my opinion, an amino acid pill or liquid aminos, are not much more then an expensive protein shake.

    A Protein Substitute made of Essential Amino Acids is NOT the same as a protein shake! First, it’s not a protrein supplement but an amino acid subsitute. AND if it’s pre-digested, it produces almost no metabolic waste and no fecal residue. To see this product and read all about it, go to: http://www.masteramino.com – especially good for muscle mass enhancement & strength production.
