    Why would you want to buy BCAAs?

    It depends on how much you're taking. Some people take 5g PRE, 5 g POST but some trainers recommend like 5g 5 times a day, especially when dieting. Dave Tate was taking 100g/day during his diet :eek3:

    I never understood the point in buying BCAA pills/powders though.

    If you're eating 200g+ protein per day, you're already getting lots of BCAAs and EAAs. Most whey powders have increased BCAA/EAA amounts anyway.

    Also (and i'm going to find a source for this), but if I recall correctly from lectures, large doses of one amino acid will interfere with the absorption of others... probably not a good thing.

    well i think your body only absorbs the amino acids, you break down the protein into their respective amino acid profiles and then digest them

    Not sure what we can conclude from this, but it seems that the absorption of an essential amino acid blend isn't going to get broken down while whey is broken down :
