    No. Protein shakes are considered to be meal replacements; providing a usable amount of calories and macronutrients. BCAA's will provide the isolated Amino Acids.

    The 3 AA's that make up BCAA's don't need the liver for protein synthesis. That makes them readily available in your blood very quickly. So fast, that you should supplement immediately before and halfway through your workout. Note that speed of delivery is just speed and does not mean it will give you any better results.

    Technically, you can supplement anytime. If you're not concerned with using/spending too much, take it before, during and after .

    What kind of shake are you taking? And have you tried other brands?

    A high quality whey such as hydrowhey or isoflex will digest very quickly.

    Even a cheaper whey like O.N.'s 100% Gold Standard will digest quickly
