    When I take my BCAA's, I usually do half BCAA/half luecine since leucine is cheap as hell and most of the benefits of BCAA's are due to the leucine content.

    Interesting. I wonder if the 2531mg in ON Whey is enough, if more supplementation is needed?

    I bought 100g from an online store and I've been adding it.

    Can't say I've noticed anything in particular.
