Hey Guys, I wanted to find out what the best BCAA product would be to take post workout, I've heard great stuff onbut have taken Twin Lab Amino fuel in the past, anyone know a popular one that's better?
ModernBCAA is my choice.
no artificials. 8:1:1 ratio. and white blue raspberry is delicious.
AI's recoverpro is also a good choice. im really liking the new version in red rasp. i also like modern bcaa by usp labs. price wise id go with recoverpro
I'll mix up some in a gallon too and sip on it once in awhile during certain days.
It really is personal preference of course, I personally use Athletic Xtreme's Axcell. I'm currently mixing the arctic berry in a gallon jug because it waters down better than the orange. The Orange flavor I use pre and intra workout.
Flavors are going to vary even within the same brand so you'll prob end up trying quite a few yourself over time.
Some people like to take the BCAA bulk and flavor it themselves.
But it's not just about flavor, it's content too. Read the facts and ingredients to make sure the product has exactly what your looking for. Most BCAA products aren't just BCAA I've seen one or two ppl repeating certain ingredients with different supps that just isn't necessary. So read and shop around and find what sounds best
As mentioned by others you can buy in bulk.
But if you want you can also design your own mix if you want to research and determine what you want in it.
I created my own Custom Mix of the Amino Acids and other supplements I wanted creating my Post-Workout-Recovery-Drink.
I also ordered bulk Creatine that I mix with Dextrose( I purchased from a local Homebrew & Wine Supply) myself so I get the ratio I want.
There are all kinds of options. You don’t necessarily have to buy a ready made mix. I’m sure there are many companies that offer this.
Thanks for the info, im glad to hear all of this
I just ordered Optimum Nutrition
BCAA 5000 Powder, Instantized, Unflavored for $23.
It was recommended to me by a very good source at a local vitamin store (college grad, BBer and nutritionist) that actualy steered me away from their products.
I actually say Modern BCAA is the worst BCAA in this planet why ? Because you know the company is up to something when they put proprietary blend on the label, and MOdern BCAA comes in a big jar, plenty of space
it could be 9.5 grams of the cheapest ingredient and .5grams of the rest...
