  2. Can't say I rely on strict BCAA supps, I usually just use my Whey which has a helping of BCAA within. I did buy some 'Holland and Barretts' High Performance BCAA Tablets, but those tablets are nearly an inch long and 1cm in diameter. There's no way I can down them!

  3. Layne said 3 grams per hour peaks so I think its pointless to take it at a 100% serving but I think if addded 1 or 2 grams to a whey shake to make 3 grams sure but any one healthy should be getting ample amounts of leucine threw out the day from food any way.

  5. Eat right and no need for supplementing. It reminds me of the glutamine scam.

  6. I work 12 hour shifts so the extra bcaa as a drink would work wonders. If its in 25 dollars range I'll buy it today.

    Understand the situation - some of us don't have time to focus on our body 18hrs a day and unfortunately must do mundane tasks to earn a living !!

    I, personally, wouldn't go over an 8:1:1 ratio, unless there's more research to show this being beneficial.

    For the longest time, 2:1:1 was the go to.

    Then came 4:1:1.

    And now 8:1:1 was brought up.

    Now this?

    I still use 4:1:1 and am happy with that. The bigger this ratio gets, the closer it comes to supplementing straight leucine, which if my memory serves me correctly, isn't what you want in the BCAA product, because the other 2 need to be there for the leucine to have its effect, as well.

    That's exactly how I feel about it. 4:1:1 is good and no need for a higher ratio IMO

  11. Seems pretty dumb since leucine needs both valine and isoleucine to work. It would be taking them from your body/food. I prefer 2-1-1

    thats why i take PP iBCAA

  13. I always thought the 2:1:1 ratio was the tested, proven one..

    I take a ridiculous amount of BCAA a day is not even funny, and if I had to pick ONE supplement
    bulk BCAA would be it..

    Don't mean to jack the 3d but, do you guys notice difference/improvement in
    what taking higher ratio?

    Because I know perfectly what BCAA do for me in the gym and
    overall, I'm curious to see what a higher ratio gives more then the standard 2:1:1

    I agree that sipping on a BCAA product throughout the day can be beneficial. I'd just rather see it as a 2:1:1 or 4:1:1 ratio (like what you're doing, Mike).

  19. Yea but its not that expensive 25 buzz for 40 servings I believe so I figure why not try it.

  23. Looks like yet another BCAA product. BCAAs are good, for anti-catabolic and mild anabolic purposes if you use them right

    Something like 8:1:1 is definitely better than 2:1:1 IMO, but I do believe the differences we are talking about are marginal. There is no set in stone ratio. It is just a matter of:

    Have saturated levels of valine and isoleucine (some get it through diet, not everyone does), otherwise leucine cant give maximal effects

    More leucine the better

  24. I don't care about if its 4:1:1 or 2:1:1 or 8:1:1 i take whatever is the better sale at the time like when Modern BCAA's came out for inner circle i bought them, or when AXcell was dirt cheap i loaded up or Xtend now being cheap. I just load up on brands i trust and go with the sale, no point in worrying what the ratio is,

  25. Why do I feel like this is going in the same direction as razor blades. Since when was my four blade razor not good enough? This is getting a bit out of hand. Although for 25$ it might be worth my minimal curiosity. If anyone picks this up please post your thoughts.

    lol that is such a good analogy

    2012 - 6 blade razors

    I still think the 1 blade the barbers use are best. But i stick to the electric

  27. That's like saying you prefer food over bcaas. Which is my viewpoint too. That single blader barber shave is like nothing else.

    Nice analogy and point. I agree.

    And as a minor hijack, the Schick Hydro 5 is the best razor I've ever used. I only bring it up since razors were mentioned and in case any of you hate all of them as much as I do lol. I'd always been a Gillette man, but this is my favorite hands down.

  30. Hats off to you guys on that. I'll just stick with my 7-3 in the lab. I'm good. Too bad my commutes a hike.

  31. I Mega dose bcaa anyway so 12 1 1 is not bad especially if it tastes good. So far this company looks good and im betting I might like it. But thats untill....stay tuned.

    It would take longer then one tub and I'm sure the results are a bit better. If its the same price as 8:1:1 why not drink it?

    I recall reading some possible problem with a higher ratio, but I don't remember exactly where and what tbh.
    I just know that the standard ratio works wonders on me so, why fix something that doesn't need to be fixed?
    Dunno, I'll be honest the higher ratio BCAA always sounded like bs to me
