–Essential amino acids can actually increase protein synthesis above basal values.
This is what you want to use before and after training to gain muscle mass.
–BCAAs do not increase protein synthesis above basal values, but they reduce muscle degradation.
They are valuable during cutting and may even stimulate fat burning. BCAAs are the perfect supplement for people who choose to use a "midnight shake". They only give a few calories. (20 kcal. Since 5 g of BCAAs is probably enough), so you don't have to worry about the possible fat mass that you could gain from a protein shake at night.
