    the flavoring is good but the aftertaste isn't and lasts.

  2. Once you can drink bcaas, CEE, and citrulline malate in water without flavoring..everything tastes good.

    together or separately? I kinda like the tart taste of citrullene solo.

    Together. Just CEE by itself is enough to make me want to puke even mixing it in grape juice.

  5. This thread has inspired me. I'm buying bulk BCAAs and bulk DAA tomorrow and mixing to see if the DAA masks the BCAAs. And then I will chase it with a shaker of Lemon RecoverPro.

    Sounds like one form of hell following the other. Actually I've taken DAA with BCAA's. It gives it a little more tartness but doesn't enhance the flavor much or mask anything since most DAA powders are unflavored anyways.

  7. Both.
    Modern for intraworkout and xtend for daily consumption
    IMO modern is good if youre on anebeta

  8. Xtend. Uses the university studied ratio's. If these other variations were better, surely one of these companies would spend the money to show it via a study. Since it goes against the grain of research. You can get the previous version of Xtend on sale at Nutraplanet CHEAP right now. The new version uses bonded CM and added electrolytes. Totally changed flavor system as well. In the new, the best flavors are blue raz, apple and lemon sour (if you enjoy gatorade flavor).

    I'm CEO of Scivation for full disclosure.

    Yes, I agree on the 2:1:1 ratio.

    A single serving of Xtend is 11.5 of which only 7g is actual BCAA. Of the 1035g volume of their product it contains only 630g (60.89%) of actual BCAA's. At $49.99 a tub that equates to $0.08/g.

    NutraPlanet BCAA's is 1000g (1 kilo) of 100% BCAA's for $39.99. That equates to $0.04/g.

    NutraPlanet BCAA's are HALF the price of Xtend.

    Of course bulk materials will be cheaper than a flavored multi piece formula. To at least make it fair, you should mention that Xtend has Bonded CM, glutamine and electrolytes. It's also the only bcaa product that fully passes prop 65 compliance .

    You bet. It would not be 'fair' to compare them apples to apples.

    I have used Xtend and it is a high quality product.

  12. Bulk BCAA plus one effervescent vitamin C tablet works well.

    The orange flavoured ones I use are aspartame free and can flavour the 35g~ of aminos I use post workout. It works out much cheaper than flavoured versions.

    I thought you used RecoverPro, though.

  14. Not anymore, when I realised the new lemon flavour had over 20(?) servings less than the last one I took my business to a bulk supplier. I just don't want that many artificial additives if I have the option.

  15. Xtend is my BCAA of choice. It costs a little more than Recoverpro, but has a proven ratio, better taste, and added goodies that recoverpro doesn't (glutamine, citrulline mallate, B6)

    There is also a lot more variety to the flavors than just 2

    Ever since I added citrulline malate to my intra workout drink I have not looked back! Fantastic pumps

  19. Guys I heard bdcc was paid by Scivation to denounce RecoverPro. I just got back from the gym with him and watched him pour water straight from the tap into a jug of RecoverPro lemon and slam it. He still takes it, prefers it, loves it, he just doesn't talk about it anymore.

  20. No clue if the above post is serious, as I'm sure there is some internal joke aspect. All I will say is we don't pay people to bash products.

    Haha, yes a long, ongoing joke that stems from bdcc's creation of a 50+ page thread about which flavor of RecoverPro is better.

    I haven't tried the new formula, yet, but I've gone through several 90-serving tubs of the original Xtend -- good stuff

    So what was this check I got in the mail for?

    Kidding...kidding. I know you guys don't bash.

    I'm honestly not picky at all about my BCAA's. I don't feel like they do enough for me to worry about it.

  23. I can tell a difference with the new formula from the old. Not sure if it's the bonded CM (vs blended which is what everyone uses) or the electrolytes. An MMA fighter I work with had his first fight since working with us about 12-16 weeks ago. A lot of his training partners came up to me while I was down there and comment on how much stronger he had gotten. Dude is pretty anal and hasn't changed a lot, other than taking a ton of xtend. I don't credit all of his results to that, but for someone that has to train at the volume those guys do, essentially 2 a days 5x per week, I think they have merit. We're already working on the 3rd version, which is 18 months away. Totally new technology and will have a full legit university study behind it before it's released.

    ... did you used to own the old BN site??? if so is this MM???

    Also if the former 2 are true why not get SP a sponsor spot over here??

  25. Yeah I used to own BN, sold it in 06. Yes, it's MM. I'm not here to promote SP. Nutraplanet is a sponsor here and sam and I have a great business relationship. I'd rather promote sci/pri through him. He supports us, I support him. Which is why you can get previous version of Xtend through him cheap

    understandable....

    Kind of figured that there was going to be the NP clause in effect since i guess you do more then just bulk.... personal relationship aside AM and NP are exclusive as I understand it.

    Glad to know that you DO have a personal relationship though with NP and I can find your brands for CHEAP over there.... just one question then while your in here... didnt Primaforce have a L-dopa product? I thought you did at some point....

  27. No we did not.

    Very well... I think you should make one... I quite like the quality of your products

  29. Mike may not pay people to bash other supplements, but his Viper intimidates the other supplements into being worse. Is this true MMMMMike?

    I'll offer you the same deal I offered AI Sports. For a small fee of free form aminos I will write "I <3 Scivation" on my body in marker and put the picture in my Avi.
