Just died and went to heaven! Been wanting to try these two flavors for a long time... Yumm! 

I love switching up my BCAAs 😋💪🏻 People always ask me why I take BCAAs (aka branched-chain amino acids) here is what I tell them: amino acids are the building blocks of protein. 

Because we break down muscle tissue while exercising, supplementing with it can only be a good thing. It also helps with lean muscle mass and recovery!
There you have it, add some BCAAs to your daily routine and your body will thank you!

My favorite brand is BPI Sports! You can find it for a great deal on Amazon!
