    Cliffs: Unless you are taking a BCAA supplement with high values of usable l-leucine before or during your workouts, you are wasting your money. You get plenty of BCAAs from your whole food protein sources.

    Which is what Justin Harris has always said, this is nothing new.

    I never took BCAA's and never saw a point.

    I get enough through the protein rich foods I eat and ON whey has some BCAA's in it anyway.

    If it has any benefits, most would be when taken around workouts.

    I also agree with what he says here in bold...
