    You have to specify a little more than just amino acids. Is it a BCAA supp or is it essential amino's or something else? Also if you drink a few whey protein shakes a day, along with a solid protein source, then your most likely getting all the amino's your going to be needing to grow.

    I once read Supplementing with amino acids is like throwing a bucket of sand on the beach. I don’t now how much of this is true. of the 22 known amino acids 8 are essential and must be obtained from food or ells where,,

    Usually they are just a waste. Eat more protein.
