USP Labs Modern BCAA+ is one of my favorite products. BCAA's are effective against lactic acid buildup, supplementing prevents lean muscle from being broken down to supply them, increase recovery, and help fight fatigue during workouts by limiting tryptophan uptake in the brain. 

Most BCAA supplements rely on the "clinically studied" 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine:Isoleucine:Valine. Though research shows this ratio aids in preventing lean muscle breakdown and is effective in increasing endurance during strength training, there is a widely held belief that this may not be the "best" ratio. The flaw in the "Clinically proven" dose is that they only compared leucine by itself, BCAA's in the 2:1:1 ratio, and no supplementation. Many people believe Leucine to be even more effective at higher doses when the other 2 amino's are present. USP Labs agrees and doses their Modern BCAA at an 8:1:1 ratio, giving you a massive dose of leucine when compared to other companies.

Any good BCAA supplement should also help with hydration during workouts. USP Labs also included L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine to aid in hydration and further promote recovery. Adding to that there is a good dose of Sodium Citrate and, Potassium Chloride, key electrolytes to ensure your muscles aren't going to cramp up during the toughest of workouts.

A good BCAA supplement can be one of the most important pieces of your supplement regimen. It's efficient. It's effective. Stop losing valuable training time waiting for muscles to recover.
