I recently ordered some BCAA to use in conjunction with occasional heavy lifting days (meaning I'd be probably consuming one serving once or twice weekly).
I didn't see any indicator in the product info on the retailer's site about contraindications, but when the BCAA arrived it said on the package that it shouldn't be used by pregnant or nursing mothers.
I wouldn't consume BCAA while pregnant (that is kind of a duh one to me), but I'm still nursing my just-turned-two-year-old regularly throughout the day. Is the BCAA just covering its bases, or is there a real / known risk to consuming BCAA while nursing a toddler?
