    BCAA Whats The Best?


    So I tried Nutraplanets bulk BCAA and have had nothing but problems. The bcaa's won't mix with water, crystal light, juice...nothing....it just clumps up on the top and won't mix. So I am trying to figure out a different BCAA to try. What is the best one and why?

    alri chain'd out is my favorite, 1 tub lasts 4 months and the appletini tastes amazing, everyone loves their xtend, i thought it went to quick, and i'm currently trying out recoverpro, not as good on taste but the amount of servings sounded awesome, i don't think it's gonna get me that many servings though

    IBCAA are the purest BCAAs you'll find on the market. The mix unbelievably well and are virtually tasteless, even in just plain water!

    Xtend - Best tasting

    RecoverPRO - Best value


    These are the two I use. And mixing and matching makes both of them last a very long time.

    I didn't like the taste of Xtend myself, if I had to choose a pre-flavoured BCAA/EAA-containing product, it would either be PreMax or Purple Wraath.

    the trick is try shake then refridgerate for about 20-30 minutes... then get it out and shake it more, and it should be fully mixed...

    i use custom capsule's Extend lime flavored BCAAs and i like it.

    PP's instantized is awsome in regards to mixability and tastelessness.
    RecoverPro is a close second - very good!

    The NP Bulk BCCA's as another memebrs stated is not a 'stirable' - 'soluable' powder. It needs to be used in a shaker bottle, vigorously shaken, again, and again. It will disolve in time.

    $/LB NP Bulk BCAA's price is an unbeatable value.

    I have tried ALRI's Chain'd Out as well and have to agree with YG-very well-flavored BCAA product. I believe it also contains a few other beneficial ingredients in addition to the BCAAs tho. Might be something worth looking into. I remember tasting 1fast400's Bulk BCAAs and after tasting those, now I know I can tolerate any terrible tasting powder supplement lol. I will always prefer powder over pills as powders tend to be far more cost effective than pills + it is easier to consume an effective dose using powder w/water than popping 6 pills at once. Not that I have a problem taking pills but I take a multitude of pills as it is. If I can avoid increasing the already large # of pills in my arsenal, I will

    ATM, my BCAA supplement of choice would have to be Scivation's Xtend. I have a 90 serving tub of Watermelon with plenty to go. I'd like to try Apple flavor once I am done with it.

    I was using Xtend+DGC for quite a while intra-workout but I have decided to drop this combo and leave the BCAAs for PWO. Xtend does tend to play with my stomach a bit and that's def. something I can do w/o-especially during a workout. I'll deal with it PWO: the benefits of BCAAs are worth the temporary discomfort PWO. I've decided for intra-workout, I'm going to go with AEN's Intrabolic. Its a very solid product and does right by me. It has proven to be superior in terms of effectiveness when compared to my BCAA+dextrose combination.

    I truly think Purple wraath is the best there is, for all around purposes. Out of all mentioned the only one i have yet to try is the iBCAA's by pp. however, out of everything I think Controlled Labs purple wraath is the best!

    If you want quality, soluble BCAAs, then Primordial's are the best. I have tried several amino powders and I will only order PP's.

    I have to throw down my choice as Body Mortar from AMS. I'm using the fruit punch right now and I tell ya, hands down it is the best tasting. I place it over Xtend in that department. It mixes perfect and follows the 4:1:1 formula. I've decided that it'll now be my staple for sure.

    Exactly.

    RecoverPRO is an insane value. I like mixing Xtend and RecoverPRO to make some novel flavors.

    So I bought some Xtend and it's awesome. Mixes well and tastes good. I bought the grape flavor. I am thinking about getting some recoverPRO as well to make the xtend last longer. Does the recoverPro mix just as well as xtend?

    i used bcaa's for a year, and i stopped taking them and just took a 25gr protein shake pre-workout instead. you will get your bcaa's in the shake along with all the other fun amino acids. fun stuff!

    i honestly can tell you bcaa's dont make much of a difference if you have your nutrition correct around the workout.

    the best bcaa's are just drinking a pre-workout shake. it may have a much better absorption rate that bcaa's, read that in a research once, but i cant locate it (thats why i say "may"). plain bcaa's are the most over-rated supplement on the boards.

    yea yea science, great.........but this is just mho. i gotta go by how i feel on it and 18 years training experience.

    I use amino's currently as a break in the monotony of drinking just water (and milk with shakes here and there). Its much better for you than diet soda (and bloats you less), and helps when you're trying to cut and not take in extra cals.

    Xtendand iBCAA's. Xtend has a nice flavoring but iBCAA by PP are really pure and qood quality. Recoverpro is also a good choice. Those are my top three.

    I wondered why BN BCAA's gave me diareah. I guess it's whatever made it taste so bad.

    i think it serves it purpose for the elite athlete, especially to preserve muscle mass during alot of activity, basketball players etc...i mean you cant keep chugging protein all day long, especially during long training sessions protein doesnt sit well in the stomach.

    but your right, it can be a nice drink, lg bc+eaa is mighty delicious i may start buying it again just for the taste!!!

    i never liked cutting my calories too low, ive lost 46 pounds in 2 years, i like to do it nice and slow to preserve muscle, but i can see how bcaa's can be beneficial should you need to extreme cut. i would never take bcaa's without eaa's, that is why i would pick the LG product.

    I've tried xtend and purple wraath. I've gotta vote for xtend. Grape and watermelon is great. Definitely more enjoyable than water during workouts. Purple wraath isn't bad but it's hard to beat xtend taste-wise.

    Not all of Xtend is BCAA or EAA nutsack. Keep doing your math and you'll come up short. The products are not gram for gram comparisons. Not to mention Xtend is not at all hydrolyzed, and the ratio is an inferior 2:1:1.

    They are both really good products, I like the addition of hydrolyzed proteins, since they have a lot of good data behind them for building muscle and even increasing testosterone levels. Nothing wrong with straight BCAA either, but why not do both?
