BCAA Powder

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) can help repair and build muscle even when you can't make it to the gym! Muscle burns at least three times the number of calories as fat, which makes building muscle a priority for boosting metabolism. BCAA does just that by helping your body repair and rebuild muscle. Get the benefits by adding 1000 mg of BCAA powder to your morning smoothie. Always ask your doctor before starting a new supplement.

Exactly How to De-Escalate Aggression From a Stranger

Follow security Expert Bill Staton's important advice to keep yourself safe.

Have you ever had a tense interaction with a stranger in public? Perhaps your shopping carts accidentally knocked into each other or there was a misunderstanding in communication and the other person gets angry. You may wonder how you can de-escalate the aggression and exit the situation safely.
