My preferred bcaa, good value for the money.
The best! I really like knowing exactly how much BCAAs I'm using.
This is a great value and when you pick up one of the flavor tubs for so cheap, you can make your own intra product or just use it start off your morning or use before fasted cardio. I love that there's enough to last a good while, but it's not a giant bag or tub. It fits easily inside of a cabinet, cupboard, or on the counter without taking up space or looking ridiculous.
