BCAAs (Branched chain amino acid)
All proteins are composed of 20 difference amino acid. There are eight that the body cannot produce, which are Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, and Valine, these are called essential amino acids. Essential amino acid must be ingested in food, or supplementation, to get them inside the body. BCAAs stimulate the production of insulin. The main function of insulin is to allow the circulating blood sugar to be taken up by the muscle cells and used as a source of energy. BCAAs are also anti-catabolic because they help prevent protein breakdown and muscle loss. In order to maintain muscle, especially after a hard day of golf and fitness, it is important to take a BCAAs supplement to prevent the loss of muscle and maintain energy levels. It is recommended that a person take 0.15-0.16g/kg of bodyweight per day.

The most researched supplement out there is creatine. The general consensus is that creatine is an essential supplement to take. I might even say that it is the number one supplement a person, athlete or not, should take. Here is why:
@ Strength jolt. Creatine helps your muscles build phosphocreatine, which gives you the ability to perform better at shorter, intense, strength building exercises.
@Quicker start. It has been shown that creatine can significantly improve a muscle power production by 10% (think about it, creatine may help you hit the ball farther).
@Boosts testosterone in men. Testosterone help a male keep energy, endurance, strength, and mental sharpness in order. Creatine can boost these elements to improve performance.
@More productivity. Creatine has been proven to help productivity within the day. That means you can get more out of your golf training, fitness sessions and school work.
When we ingest dextrose anhydrous (glucose), it does not have to be digested. Glucose enters the bloodstream directly, therefore making it one of the “fastest-acting” carbohydrates. It is identical to the blood sugar produced by our bodies and is transported by the blood directly to all organs and cells in the body, including the brain. The brain needs a huge amount of energy, and its preferred source is glucose.
The human body needs carbohydrates as a source of energy for the brain functions, for every muscle movement, for supplying the heart, lungs and intestines, and for generating warmth.
The brain is our most important “control center”. There are two reasons why glucose is vital to the functioning of the brain:
When the brain is supposed to work at an optimal performance level, it needs a steady, even and sufficient supply of glucose.
Glucose is the preferred source of energy for the brain and the entire nervous system.
