    I havent tried it but if our iForce Compete tastes anything like our hemavol or maximize im betting we take the market by storm
    the flavoring used for hemavol was second to none... so I would think that if iForce couldnt get it right for BCAA's theyd be better off scrapping it and starting over then to release such a thing...

    I would love to see how that tastes.


    as for xtend causing an insulin spike..... where did you even read that??? Im fairly in tune with my body, especially in reference to levels of insulin, and I use a 4 scoop serving of Xtend almost daily right now and dont feel it a bit in way of increasing insulin or lowering blood sugar during a workout.

    i honestly can't recall where I had read that and was not 100% sure of the authenticity of it as I have never heard BCAA spiking blood sugar at ALL!

    The Recover Pro is great! I usually mix it a bit before my workout.... then give it a few more shakes just before using to make sure it is all dissolved

    I'm surprised not one person mention Purple Wrath ... That **** was my Go-To 2 years ago and it tastes good as **** while working out ...

    I'm on modern BCAAs right and I like it ... Maybe cuz I take Jack3d so flavors kind of link with each other not making a buffet in my mouth ...

    But like the dude above said ... Look prices on supps are going up like crazy, speacially BCAAs ...
    MIO the water enhanced thing works like a charm I swear and it's like $3 for a good 2 weeks ...
    I sometimes pop BCAA pills and top it off with water and MIO and it tastes like if it was pure MIO while saving me a good $50 a month

    I love Xtend, also recover pro is good. Also I love Purple Wraath but that is way more than just a BCAA supplement and is extremely expensive.

    I've always used Xtend but picked up some Amino X because of the sale at NP. 10g per scoop and some vitamin d. Green Apple is delicious and have watermelon on deck.

    Thanks,
    I got the sample & tried it today. It mixes pretty well & it does taste like Kool Aid. I think I will be getting this & the Recover Pro first & and I'll try to get samples of some of the others.

    All my friends think the Xtend tastes jolly rancher. I kind of agree but never thought of it that way until they told me that.

    Another toss in the hat for RecoverPro. Review I did when I first came to this site.

    D2football's RecoverPro The Review

    Been mixing the RecoverPro lemon with creatines and etc to find great tasting multi-purpose drinks. There is a version of a drink going around called RecreaturePro (12oz of Water, scoops of RecoverPro lemon, scoop of Citrus Creature)

    It was pretty good but I like ReFocusPro better, 1 scoop of Lemon RecoverPro and 1 scoop of Pina Colada Focus XT and I get a delicious and invigerating drink!

    I came up with new one today Prototure, Genomyx Protocol with Beast Creature. A cherry citrus flavor was amazing. But RecoverPro is awesome.

    I got the big 2.2 lbs tub and have been experimenting with it ever since, lol! The Focus XT combo was probably my favorite so far, but I already love FXT flavoring. Just goes to show how versitile recoverpro can be.

    Interesting! I'm not a huge coconut fan so I've been on the fence about getting some Pina Colada flavored in.

    AtLarge Nutritions BCAA is pretty solid. A little more pricey than some of the other products out there but its quality stuff and you get a ton of servings. A tiny scoop is 10g's. Prettt sweet.

    I was too, which is why it took me so long to try it but the coconut is just barely present and kinda more like a tart pineapple taste.

    Just to throw another option out there are the BCAAs from AMS. Blue Razz is awesome and fruit punch is my favorite and lemon is pretty damn refreshing. We have carb, carb free, and with electrolytes.

    I like the addition of the electrolytes without the added sugars. May check this out in the future.

    We have BCAA w/ electrolytes in both the carb free and carb version. For my endurance races I use the carb version and for my day to day lifting I use the carb free.

    I've ran 10ks to half marathons using only water and our BCAA and not touching the Gatorade/powerade they offer on the course.
