Branched Chain Amino Acids are in a lot of the foods we eat.

I've seen the claim by various individuals that it helps in the building and maintenance of lean muscle mass. The more BCAAs in your diet the more "happy" your body will be with maintaining its current mass and the less your body will use your muscle tissue as fuel.

Especially important are leucine, isoleucine, valine, and glutamine.

I'm no expert. Just my 02.

IMO not really. But then you're asking someone who thinks supplementing anything not essential to your health isn't really that natural.

Others probably feel differently. I've definitely had that discussion with meat eating bodybuilders! haha

But if you still want to try it I don't see the harm.

Ah ok if you are supplementing with a shake then you'll be getting extra in that alone. I def wouldn't spend money or effort on any extra.

If you buy some Soy Protein Isolate, there is no need for buying BCAA's, as Soy Protein Isolate is very abundant in BCAA's.

Pretty sure that a pea/rice blend also is pretty solid on BCAAs. I'm also starting to think that a lot of the BCAAs hype (as in buying a completely separate supplement) is a lot about selling product - if you have variety in your diet, you're going to be getting them in.

I do a pea/rice protein blend which has a great amino acid profile but I also take Xtend. I upped my dose to what is recommend on the bottle and I am not sure if it's me or the Xtend but I feel like I have been recovering better over the past few days.

Plus it tastes really good.
