    I meant to say Bpi not 1MR but they are very similar to modern BCAA but are known to have better results and recovery. I personally like BLOX but honestly whatever works for the user

    can you explain this further?

    I don't see how they would be similar. I'm not doubting you I just haven't looked into saa's since bpi is the first (that I have seen) to really push them

    Without getting detailed in the science behind each, not enough research has been done on the SAA to show a great difference, but IMO after taking the two, i felt a better Pump and "fuller" during my workouts with the SAA. Like i said, its all in the users opinion

    how about the detailed science?

    or a link to it.

  7. well since i joined this forum recently it won't let me upload links. but search "Could this be the end to BCAA's?" on google and its the first article on google under PB forums. The first guys shares a link to a study.

  8. Any reputable brand will be fine. I prefer the higher leucine content though. *** or Vitamin shoppe always has bcaa's on sale. but can't beat bulk bcaa's thats for sure.

    I agree with 808.. buying bulk BCAA's is a good route, especially the price difference. BPi BLOX is a little costly around $30 and BCAA are roughly about $20, which include more serving. I always say if something is working for you, stick with it but SAA are something maybe to try down the road

    are you affiliated with bpi?
    or is this from personal experience?

    no i am not. as a matter of fact I'm not a user of Bpi products except for BLOX. i think the 1MR PWO sucks. but yes its from personal experience. like i said, if you have a couple dollars laying around, give it a try

    Honestly the only reason to go with ajinomoto is if you want the source material. There is no other appreciable difference (even mixing and taste is varied among products)
    Or maybe they are insinuating other products are only 1/6th as pure as their 100% pure product, meaning 16.6% purity :O

    lol

  13. Bulk modern bcaas are such a killer deal as mentioned it's hard to go for any other source. 1 kilo for 29.99. Problem is it tastes pretty bad and has such a strong tinge of medicine in their peach flavor. Definitely going to try grape next time. Mixes incredibly well, too! 20 seconds, boom! 12g fully dissolved in 22oz.
  14. Thumbs up

    The Wraath is da bomb
    Lift Hard, Love Long, and Live Happy

  15. Anyone try ALRI chain'd out?

  16. Nutra planet bulk BCAA and body mortar! Ftw


  17. Body Mortar is the shi###$.. everything I need and little more!!

    Agreed, taste is important and PW tastes great, not to mention works very well.
    Xtend is also good, as well as RecoverPro. All 3 would be great picks.

  19. Blox looks promising. It looks good enough to try it.

  20. I really like xtend and Modern bcaa from personal experience. I like xtend a little better because the flavors I've tried so far (watermelon and green apple) taste like jolly ranchers which is refreshing intra-workout imo. Also I would like to give purple wraath a try because minus not having glutamine, the profile looks legit!

  21. Modern BCAA for sure; great profile and I like that it has the sustamine in it, rather than glutamine, which is rather unstable

  22. I tried a few samples of BPI blox and I have to admit that stuff tastes better than any other Amino acid product.

  23. Dymatize Elite Recoup orange is pretty good and AI Recovery Pro Raspberry is also good.

    Question, can u cap the powder & avoid drinking it?? I know that would add up to a bunch of caps per serving, but this would bi-pass the taste & be more convieniet. The real question is, would i get the same benefits or will capping it make it less effective??

    Good taste, mediocre results. Recovery with modern bcaa is much better!

    it wouldn't make it less effective, it would be a pain in the ass to cap it tho...

    you could get generic bcaas already capped but then you're not gonna get the sustamine, 8:1:1 ratio, or price point.

  29. i love bcaas they awesome
