    Lots of "IMO"s in this thread. OP, check out some of the articles and studies on BCAAs by Layne Norton.

    He had asked the better of several brands/manufacturers. Making the assumption that they all meet CoA then the issue is price and maybe ratios.

    USPowders Modern BCAA is 8:1:1 and $25/kilo. When you beat that price let me know.

    NutraPlanet BCAA's is 2:1:1 and $40/kilo.

    AI RecoverPRO BCAA is 4:1:1 and $50/kilo.

    Do they all have to be mixed in a shaker or can they just be stirred in a glass?

    Is the raspberry recover pro a nice flavour?

    I Usually just use a glass and stir with a fork,who cares about a little bit of floating leucine on top.


    Raspberry recoverpro is awesome tasting, that being said I haven't tried modern bcaa yet, mines on the way in the mail.

    anything using ajino bcaa's gets my vote. XF ICE and Omega Strive both kick ass, ICE tastes MUCH better, Strive is a more well rounded formula.

    Yea, shipping will be to expensive on 1kg of supps, and i will get import taxed also, as i did last time on 4 bottles of ursobolic i ordered from nutra got taxed about 30 dollars on top of the shipping here, big big waste of money that lol

    Looking at-

    USP
    OLIMP BCAA EXPLODE
    OPTIMUM NUTRITION
    A.INNOVATONS RECOVER PRO
    SCI-VATION EXTEND

    To much choice, never used b4 but want to start with them pre-workouts

    Thanks FOR HELP
    Eventhough I rep for AI, I still think this is my favorite BCAA. Tastes great, mixes well, and really helps recovery. Feel free to PM me for some free samples

    I forgot about ICE . I probably haven't used it in about two years.
    As for the Ajinomoto thing, I dont get why evryone praises their stuff so much. Yes they do have some of the best quality control programs in the industry BUT they have also brought some really screwed up ingreds to the market(foods , not supps)

    I'd say most likely 2 servings is enough at one time, and i'd go with intraworkout personally, or in the middle of whatever is your biggest gap in hours between meals.

    Why would you mix it in a protein shake though?

    Aminos on top of aminos

    Best way to use it is fasted or immediately post workout on an empty stomach, then have your shake. Just my .02 from anecdotal feedback

    Agreed, I only drink it intra or during meals to spike mTor levels.

    no i meant to reduce being catabolic by having the bcaas freshly ingested, neththeless i find pre-workout gives more piece of mind, then have the usual whey postwkt

    You wont go catabolic that fast. To reach a catabolic state you'd need 48-72 hours with minimal nutrition.

    Used the recover pro 3.5 servings intra workout in last 2 workouts,
    i am sure they helped me perform better giving me more endurance and not to feel fatigued like i usually feel as my carbs are moderate and my workouts are high volume so i am constantly in a semi glycogen depleted state so i can notice any change in performance i know that and my body very well, could be placebo/early days but it looks like it may be the bcaas, see how it goes it seems promising if they appear to enhance and increase workout performance they will become a staple of mine, hoping the only regret is i should have used them long ago in times of dieting etc, and the red raspberry dont taste bad either, may try lemo flavour next
    I will update when been using them a little longer.

    Just received my Modern BCAA from nutraplanet ... that is some seriously nondissolving stuff... nothing I could do would make it dissolve,, even used a stick blender in warm water,,, the flavor (grapple) was palatable though
