The number one most requested product of my sports nutrition company, Legion, is something I refuse to sell.

That product is BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids), and it’s one of the most popular supplements in the body composition space.

So, click play and stay tuned as we explore the world of BCAAs, discuss their perceived benefits, and uncover the reasons why you might want to skip them altogether.
