Why is it important?

This study is a step forward to investigate the weight loss effects of moderate deficit calorie diets. Our findings show that BCAA and vitamin B6 supplementation can be effective in weight loss diets in terms of some body composition features.


People who use different kinds of weight loss diets experience different kinds of complications. They may follow wrong diet prescriptions and use inappropriate supplements which may lead to more complications. Finding new solutions can help them in this regard. I hope this article can present effective knowledge in terms of weight loss and supplementation in weight loss.
