    I haven't studied or looked this up, but I am almost positive you can't overdose on BCAA's. You can't overdose on protein, right? Eating too much protein won't kill you, and protein has BCAA's, so I do not see how taking a lot of straight BCAA's is bad.

    Overrated Megadose of BCAA's around here. You don't need that much if youre diet is ok, since BCAA's comes from food too.

    No problem with your doses, specially if youre cutting.

    Most of your protein (steak, eggs, etc...) contains the BCAAs as intact aminos. Your FREE FORM intake is fine most likely

    But yes, you can take too much FREE FORM. If you have depression symptoms or anxiety disorder, overloading BCAA's may worsen the condition due to their competition with other compounds in crossing the BBB and through other mechanisms.

    Another is with Leucine / BCAAs and their potential oxidative metabolism upregulation.

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
