Probably best to shake it a couple times then let it sit for a minute or two. I've left 15 grams of bcaas mixed in a bottle of Gatorade overnight and the next morning there were no leucine floaties. Then I took my Gatorade, put it in my golf bag, and off I went!Originally Posted by grngoloco
Even when I use NutraPlanet bulk BCAA (not ultra-micronized) I use cool/room temperature water then place in refrigerator overnight - dissolved. I make mine up before bed and place in the fridge. In the morning take it with me on the way to the gym at 4:00AM. They're BCAA - they don't dissolve instantly or quickly - plan ahead if it is necessary.
I know with a lot of stuff, if you let it sit in water too long it begins to break down and lose efficacy,,, is this not the case with BCAA's?Originally Posted by David Dunn
I was going to pour it over ice if and when it dissolved... even with the foamy, chunky leucine, it was palatable,, my powdered arginine is much much worse, for taste at least,,Originally Posted by jiggamanbill
If it breaks down molecularly it could turn into a completely different chemical,, take olive oil, for example, when over heated the molecular chain breaks apart and it turns into a completely different chemical that's carcinogenic ... this is just an example of what happens with olive oil... I have no idea if this could possibly happen with bcaa'sOriginally Posted by David Dunn
On the flip side it could break down, but not molecularly, and absorb more readilyOriginally Posted by grngoloco
That makes perfect sense,, the same as with any freeze dried substance, such as HCG,, definitely a valid question, but definitely a plausible answer as wellOriginally Posted by David Dunn
