    Not sure what to tell you, other than 100% of my friends "have yet to suffer through any headaches", or experience any other issues.

    sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet, me (im probably the only one with his hand raised, again).

    any how, i looked to see if you guys had some bcaa's, didn't see any.

    but, i waited too long, and so, i had to stop by the v shop and grabbed a tub of amino x. watermelon.

    taste like a jolly rancher. mixes great with orange gatoraid.

  4. I always go for EAA product, and this is why

    J Nutr. 2006 Jan;136(1 Suppl):234S-6S.
    Modulations of muscle protein metabolism by branched-chain amino acids in normal and muscle-atrophying rats.

    Kobayashi H, Kato H, Hirabayashi Y, Murakami H, Suzuki H.

    Applied Research Department, AminoScience Laboratories, Ajinomoto Co., Kawasaki, Japan. [email protected] om

    It has been shown that BCAAs, especially leucine, regulate skeletal muscle protein metabolism. However, it remains unclear how BCAAs regulate muscle protein metabolism and lead to anabolism in vivo. We examined muscle protein synthesis rate and breakdown rate simultaneously during BCAA infusion in muscle atrophy models as well as in normal healthy rats. Corticosterone-treated rats and hindlimb-immobilized rats were used as muscle atrophy models. Muscle protein synthesis rate and breakdown rate were measured as phenylalanine kinetics across the hindlimb. In anesthetized normal rats, BCAAs stimulated muscle protein synthesis despite low insulin concentration and did not suppress muscle protein breakdown. In corticosterone-treated rats, BCAAs failed to restore inhibited muscle protein synthesis, but reduced muscle protein breakdown. Immobilization of hindlimb increased muscle protein breakdown within a day. BCAAs did not change muscle protein metabolism, although essential amino acids (EAAs) suppressed muscle protein breakdown in hindlimb-immobilized rats. We also evaluated changes of fractional synthesis rate (FSR) of skeletal muscle protein during infusion of leucine alone or EAAs for 4 h in anesthetized normal rats. FSR showed a transient increase at 15-30 min of leucine infusion and then declined, whereas FSR stayed elevated throughout EAA infusion. We concluded that

    1) BCAAs primarily stimulate muscle protein synthesis in normal rats independently of insulin
    2) EAAs are required to maintain the BCAA stimulation of muscle protein synthesis and
    3) The effects of BCAAs on muscle protein metabolism differ between atrophy models.
    That alone makes me prefer EAAs!

    They do still work, but that study, and other research I've done, makes me question why COMPLETE protein sources contain EAAs and INCOMPLETE protein sources do not.

    Me personally I just don't even want to risk it. Why short-change yourself, when EAA products are roughly the same price.

    get thru that tub of aminoX, then perhaps check our web site again & you might....might...just be pleasantly suprised...

    well, i was thinking of ordering purple wrath, but it was 46 bucks at the v shop, and im not paying 10 bucks more to have it now.

    next time i'll give it a try.

    i just finished a tub of their eaa +bcaa, yea, it taste like other intra w/o products, but better than intra aid, and another one i tried.

    sounds good bro.

  15. I've found both for the same price and serving. I used vpx powershock in my last contest prep and loved it.. never lost muscle.. it was my dedicated intra-workout.. now I prefer no-synthesize by them.

  16. Between those two I would go with VPX but I personally use this vvvv and it's a really good product and the price is much better

    I've used powershock, in fact I have another tub on my counter. It doesn't compare to Anabolic Competition, just compare labels and look at the dosages. In AI you're getting a full gram of Agmatine, most competing products sprinkle it in. You're also getting more nitrates as well.

    Only problem is that if one eats a meal 1-3 hr pre-wo there will be all the eaa's still in the blood to fuel the full effects of bcaa's. So if your not training fasted a bcaa product is just as good as an eaa product.

    I have agmatine on hand, actually is by MF lol, but I'm too lazy to measure it every time so having in that would be great.

    How does it taste?

    Solid point for sure, something I have read many times.

    This is true, but i see two flaws:1) the food eaten must be a complete source of protein2) the amount of EAAs in said food is potentially lowFor example, theres only 18mg of Histidine per gram of protein in complete food source.Taking an EAA product you would absorb them all at once, in much larger amounts. And we know timing of nutrients around a workout is essential to success. Theres too many variables to factor in for this to be a legit reason to pick BCAAs over EAAs.

    funny how you started a thread asking about picking specifically from two and people still ignore that and recommend something else!

    i get lg's bca+eaa for 14 bucks, and the kiwiwatermelon isn't the most delicious stuff, but taste okay.

    i fill my shaker to the brim, so w/e it is will be watered down for sure.

    but i was looking at those too. im sure the vpx stuff will taste chemically, like their shotgun and synthesize, which were good products but tasted awful.

    anyhow, open for 20 and under recomendations. but 55 bucks, no thanks.

    also thought about xtend, i know that stuff taste pretty good.
    I agree, VPX does have a chemically nasty taste. I didn't like their Power Shock and their Synthesize was even worse, like drinking concentrated Robitesum cough syrup, flavor wise. I did a very comprehensive review on BSN's Amino X on bb. Formula is ok but taste is much better.

    Me! If i'm going to be drinking it all the time, I shouldn't have to gag it down and try to keep from puking. There has been some wonderful advances in flavoring and with the large diversity of products out there now, there's no need to settle for junk IMO.

    I have to agree with you on taste... can completely derail a workout if you are sipping on cow piss.

    That said my post workout shake sometimes makes me wanna puke.. I guess thats why sometimes I stretch out my workouts... I just have a hard time drinking 10g bcaas mixed in a casein shake.... (also my stomach cant handle milk proteins... just drinking it up cause my mom sent me a bottle cause she thought I wanted protein from america....)

    I understand the use for eaa's. The debate will never end. I was just throwing some food for thought out there. I got that knowledge from layne norton myself. The "truth" is always different depending on who you ask lol.

    I tend to agree with your approach here when bulking.
