Branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a great way to enhance recovery and build muscle. If you’re training hard and but aren’t taking BCAAs, you risk losing muscle mass especially as you get leaner, since dieting is catabolic.

There are major benefits to taking a product like BPI Sports’ BEST BCAA™ includes reduced muscle soreness, increase in energy and endurance, as well as better performance when you train. BEST BCAA™ comes in a variety of delicious favors, from grape to watermelon and fruit punch, which makes it easy to include in creative recipes for those days you rather not just have a water and powder drink.
Try the following recipes from Chef Geo to reap all the benefits of BCAAs:
