You can take BCAA supplements at any time during the day, although most people prefer to take them around 15-30 minutes before working out. You can take a BCAA tablet or capsule, add a BCAA powder to your pre-workout shake or enjoy a BCAA drink before you hit the gym, track or training field.
As BCAA’s are not a complete protein source (i.e., they don’t contain all nine essential amino acids), they do not count towards your protein needs. It’s perfectly fine to use both BCAA and protein supplements to get the best of both worlds. If you're watching your calorie intake, BCAA's generally have a lower caloric value compared to a protein shake. So, you may want to opt for a BCAA supplement rather than a shake in that case.
