3 Unhealthy Health Foods

Are Branched Chain Amino Acids Effective?

Are Branched Chain Amino Acids Effective? Are they worth the expense (cause they're sure as hell not cheap)? A question I’ve received a lot lately is about Branched Chain Amino Acids and whether they’re worth the cost.  BCAA's are nothing new.  I took them about 10 years ago, but evidently they're becoming more popular.
