    I use the 1900 MG amino acid tablets by genesis nutrition. 30 bucks for a jar of 325 tablets on their website. Everything is always buy 2 get one free. So 60 bucks for almost a thousand tablets. 1900 MG is pretty big too. I take 10 a day. 5 when I go to sleep and 5 when I wake up.

    nothing beats IBCAA- for shear sake of mixability. if it floats and i cant get it to settle then i cant drink the stuff damn it! so for me its primordial performance's IBCAA all day baby but yes buy stock in crystal light as you'll use a ton of it, i use about 2g IBCAA daily, but have also used modern BCAA, xtend, and chaind out as well....

    I've been using LG's BC+EAA for some years now - cheap, convenient, and effective.

    Have recently used Primordial's Maximum Absorbed Protein, which I am considering changing to/alternating between once I run out of my supply of BC+EAA.

    when do you guys usually take BCAAs? i eat so much eggs/meat and whey that i feel like i get more than enough. i mean protein does break down at a fast rate during the workout but the post workout shake should be enough to restore a positive nitrogen balance, no?

    i can see if you were riding a bike for 50 miles it would make sense...or maybe going without food for awhile. otherwise the average guy that eats lots of meat is probably wasting his $ on bcaa's...

    actually, if preserving maximum muscle mass is the goal.. taking them first thing as you wake up would probably make sense. whatever breakfast you eat still takes at least an hour to digest and hit the bloodstream so i guess there is some benefit there.

    I dose immediately post-training, post-meals several times throughout the day, and pre-bed, but really, you can use them whenever you want.

    ok so im looking around to see any research done using BCAA vs. whey or whole foods but i cant find any. they all compare bcaa's vs. placebo or carbs, but i read somewhere before that a daily intake of 20g or more is definitely adequate. so given how much beef/eggs/whey i consume im trying to figure out if that in between meal catabolism is really that serious..

    Well, 1g of BCAAs is the equivalent of 2g of protein. I personally consume ~54g of BCAAs daily, but I also do not use protein powder. Like I said, whether you use BCAAs is entirely up to you.

    My USP Labs Modernized BCAA doesn't have the calorie content on it. Using a 1 Gram of BCAA's =2 Grams of protein should I calculate that that 1 gram of BCAA's = 8 Calories?

    hmmm must have a bad batch, i have grape and unflavored and it mixes just as bad as xtend.... it takes me 3 different times to get the stuff down becaue the head on it floats too much, i let it sit in a constant stirring shaker for 5min and then it kinda works but still no where near instantized stuff like IBCAA or even pro bcaa ive used at max muscle before....

    Nope - technically BCAAs have "no" calories, even though they have protein equivalents.

    IBCAAs are a lifesaver in terms of mixability. Most I have used are so hydrophobic (especially flavored ones) that its like you eating powder on top of a drink!

    I use cheap supplements Bcaa. I've tried other kinds but in terms of cost it's the best IMO.
