BCAA which stands for “Branched Chain Amino Acids” does make 35% of your muscles,

BCAA is an essential which means every protein you eat contains BCAA because there is a non-essential amino acid which is being made by your body itself so if the BCAA are already included in the protein you eat then why you should consume BCAA as a supplement
