    If I had to pick one I would get the cheapest one. I wouldn't tell the person forcing me to pick one but I would return it and get Scivation Xtend.

    VPX Powershock, not even close. If you want a dedicated EAA product without the nitrates: Purple Wraath

    I have been using purple wraath for a long time now. I got 5 tubs back when it was on sale for $40 at Nutraplanet. However, last month I had to purchase a new tub and its $55 plus shipping. I'm done with it as of tomorrow and don't really have the money for a new one. Think I'll go with something cheaper this time. I used PW specifically for intra workout. Personally I would stay with products with nitrates in them, they are not safe and have not been studied long-term. Nitrates are more for heart attack/heart disease patients and should not be used in supplements.

    well, for starters, im not going to pay over 20 bucks for a tub of amino's.

    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.

    Yeah I'm looking for something cheaper now too. I just can't afford it anymore. Not that could before either though.

    I stocked up on Xtend, LG's BCAA+EAA and RecoverPro awhile back, also stocked up on Protocol when the new version came out. I don't pay more than 20 for an intraworkout drink. But look into RecoverPro its usually a good price. It has my vote.

    Is that for real? 6 g of BCAA nitrates? That comes to around 1800mgs for nitrates alone which is down right dangerous

    The 13-14$ xtend gets my vote.
    Powershock has a very strong flavor. I had the lime flavor. It would flavor 32oz easily...easily.

    i prefer to have bcaa & eaa product.

    im going to give the lime flavor a try.

    like i said, i fill my entire shaker cup with water for 1 serving, and sip on it during my workouts, even when the shaker starts to get about halfway down, i just re fill it.

    it's flavor + a little something extra. i notice a difference in energy during my workout (could be placebo) with or without the amino's so i guess im hooked.

    thanks to all for their input.

    maybe i'll give purple wrath a try after this.

    I use a ton of their products. They sold bulk creatine nitrate for quite some time. Other reputable posters on this forum can vouch for them. Google musclefeast and check out their products, no frills, just 100% quality.

    I've used and never had a problem and check BP regularly, for whatever that's worth.

    I hear you, not sure I can speak to your concerns. My friends have been using their nitrate products for months all without issue and they check BP regularly.

    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.

    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. hisamine_kobayashi@ajinomoto.c 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.

    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.
