    Well BCAA and Whey should be taken after every workout, and BCAA really help with recovery.

    BCAA's are great for recovery, We at AI sell Essentials which contains BCAAS, beta-alanine, multi-vitamin and creatine mono which are all great for recovery and buffering lactic acid.
    doing my own thang!

    Its in powder form, tastes a bit bitter due to vitamins and digestion compounds. Try mixing it milk or whey protein and something sweet.

    BCAA/EAA supplements are a staple for me. Also, LG Science's I-GH-1 works wonders for recovery IMO.

    Yeah, let me jump in on the taste, especially since I am running a sponsored log on Essentials. Not to exaggerate, but the taste is horrible, you really need something sweet to try to camouflage the taste. But I will say this, I am loving the other aspects of it. I can't comment too much on how it aids my recovery, too soon to tell. I am taking ZMA and I feel it helps me with my recovery pretty well.
