Types of BCAA's?

I was reading about BCAA’s and there is a company that claims to sell a natural version of BCAA’s from milk. They claim that the natural version is much better absorbed and it works, and that the other “synthetic” versions are proven to have no effect on the body. I find the claim hard to believe, but I wanted to see what you all thought.

Fact or fiction?

Not wanting to hijack but im after studies on the BCAA with esters, while we are on the subject.

There’s a good chance they’re just selling milk protein labeled as BCAA.

I’ve seen this before.
