BCAA fuel: Made by twinlab, bcaa fuel is a food, not a medicine. Effectiveness of this product has not been studied in any formal way. Also on the marketing web site it says, "these statements have not been evaluated by the food and drug administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease." i suggest asking your doctor to check your kidney & liver function first.
