    The question I have is, is 5g all you need in one day or should I take one serving in the morning and another one after workout? And should you wait 20-30 minutes after you take it to consume your shake/food? The label didn't give any info on that.
    I think 5g a day is enough. Once you take it for a say a week it becomes saturated in your muscles and any excess you take won't be absorbed. You'll just piss the excess out. Some people do a loading phase where they take say 10-15g per day for the first few days to reach the saturation point faster, but its probably not worth the extra bloat

    Mixes fine if you have a blender bottle. Might have to shake once or twice after initial shaking if some settles. I've never had an issue with it.

    At 5g a day is it better to take 2.5g in the morning and the other 2.5g after workout?

    I don't take just straight bcaa, the only time I get that is with my protein drinks and cell mass.

    BCAA= Branch Chained Amino Acids. It is a complete protein. Absolutely critical in building muscle and maintaining size.

    I have BCAA in my whey already, is that enough for the day or is the cell tech/ cell mass worth/ needed?

    Completely incorrect.

    Bcaa's are incomplete proteins.
