who take them? notice better results? I'm trying to increase protein synthesis and want to know if I can get what the pills have to offer through easy nutrition...
I pop powerchews usually pwo, and often in between meals when a little sweet tooth urge arises
I take none, waste of frikken money. If you consume protein shakes they have BCAA's in them, and between that and food it should be all you need. I dont even waste my money on this crap anymore

Why is the 8:1:1 ratio better then a 2:1:1 or 4:1:1? I thought there needed to be a balance between the three bcaas?
Bcaa's are Godsend for musclegrowth. 5 grams equal about 20 grams protein ONLY you only have the aminos that stimulate muscle growth and takes the other aminos out-which add more calories.
I take them and have noticed nice results since I first started taking them. There is a lot of science behind them. My favorite is - amazing taste and low price best bang for the buck on the BCAA market- my fav flavor is probably lemon

Can you explain why a 4:1:1 is better then the 2:1:1? I never got the differences lol.
More Leucine=Opening mTOR=More protein synthesis. You probably wont see over night results, heck I know you wont. But over time BCAA;s will help muscle growth, metabolism, and much more. Should be a staple in my opinion.

You cant take just leucine and get full benefits from it. The others need to be present at least at saturation levels. Some people might be getting enough from diet, but there is no way to really know.
So its best just to roll with 8:1:1. It is what you want if you want muscle. 2:1:1 and 4:1:1 are good for anti-catabolic purposes IMO
The key is simply 0.045gleu/kg bw 2 hours or more postprandially.

The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES
For every two molecules of leucine metabolized, a molecule each of isoleucine and valine is required. This is why the original ratio has always been 2:1:1. If you take leucine alone you can deplete concentrations of the other two BCAA from the amino acid pool.
hmm, thanks guys. I guess since im bulking and eating 4-5 meals a day ill just go with a 4:1:1 or 8:1:1 product
best 4:1:1 product?
recoverypro for 4:1:1, usp modernbcaa for 8:1:1
I use them and find them effective, particularly in a caloric deficit.
