BCAA Maximum Dosage

I just got a bottle of Biotest BCAAs and I noticed that you shouldn’t take more than 30 tablets per day…

Does anybody know why this would be bad?

Probably because it is not needed. Just follow the manufacturers recommendations, and you’ll be fine.

It’s called diminishing returns.

Too much can cause sever depressive episodes. BCAA cross blood brain barrier and can accumulate.
