    The article focuses on food supplements that accelerate muscle growth. Nitric oxide is a molecule, which allows blood vessels to relax so that more blood, oxygen, and nutrients can flow through system, reaching muscle tissue. Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a category of three aminos that...
