This does the job you want a BCAA to do and a bit more. Before trying this I was buying glutamine on the side to boost recovery but the 5 grams packed in ON Pro BCAA gave me no need to purchase the separate bottle. The taste was a bit sweet for me at first when I was using 10oz of water but at 12 oz it tasted fine. This helped a ton during those long workouts (especially leg day). While the serving size makes it a bit annoying to have to restock so frequently, the price is great due to the amount of glutamine packed in it. Sitting at about a dollar per serving, it makes this cheaper than a Gatorade while provide the correct BCAA ratio (2:1:1) and boosting recovery via glutamine.
