Does Whey Have BCAAs?


#1

I just got a 6pd container of Whey Protein from GNC, and was going order some BCAAs from this site tomorrow.

However, after looking at the Whey, it says it contains BCAAs.

Do I still need them?

Thanks,

David

Protein is made up of ammino acids, so any complete protein source will have BCAA's. BCAA's are 3 types of amminos. While they are in whey, there are reasons for taking them by themselves. Read up on why they are used, and that should clear things up.
