I know BCAAs also aren't the cheapest supplement and are probably best used around workouts as far as bang for buck is concerned.. but re: overtraining / keeping stress down I wonder if they can play a role.

My new job sometimes has me so busy during the day that I find myself at times having to push back meals a bit further than I'd like, given that I'm trying to recover from overtraining symptoms.

Would taking in some BCAAs when feeling particularly stressed/underfed have value in controlling cortisol/stress?
