Review: NOW Foods BCAAS

Disclaimer: I received NOW Foods BCAAS to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

I’m always interested to try new things that will help me recover, especially after a long run.  When I am marathon training, the runger that comes after a long run can be a bit ridiculous, like I basically eat all day.  So trying something that actually helps calm down my runger was great.  I would drink the NOW BCAAS right after my long run, and obviously help get water into me, but it really calmed down the runger.  I’m not saying I didn’t eat at all, I did, I just didn’t need to eat everything all day, which is nice, and helps my grocery bill.

The NOW BCAAS come in 2 flavors, grape and watermelon, and I have to say I prefer the grape.  The watermelon didn’t taste bad, I just found it had a bit of an odd aftertaste, that the grape did not have.  Also, make sure you either get the NOW shaker or have a good water bottle to shake this up in, because it really needs to be mixed like that,. stirring just doesn’t work as well.

Branched Chain Amino Acids are essential amino acids that serve as the building blocks of protein, which helps to fuel your muscles during workout and can also help support muscle recovery post-workout. They’re called essential because the body doesn’t make them on its own, so you need to supplement or get from them from your diet.

There is a discount if you would like to try some, you can go to Amazon.com and use code 20NOWBCAA or you can use this link https://www.amazon.com/promocode/A1G65M39SCQHX5 and you get 20% off (one time use only) and this is only good until November 15th, so hurry up

If you are looking for some extra help in run recovery I would give this a try, I am excited to keep using it to help with all my training.
