    Alanine is a solid one that often gets overlooked
    My apologies, I didn't mean to overlook other BCAA/EAAs. I simply was skimming through the thread and saw a post about dosing Leucine 2hrs post meal for the protein synthesis spike as indicated by Layne's research so I was just meaning to comment for that.

    I'm surprised this isn't mentioned more in this thread. Taste aside.

    I never saw the benefit of paying a premium price for Ajinomoto certified bcaas, so ModernBcaa makes the most sense. It's simply too good and too cheap not to use. As far a mixability, let it sit for a few minutes and foam and particles won't be a problem. I mix water, Gatorade, and Bcaas in a 2liter plastic jug the night before I golf, and in the morning it's no problem as far as the powders dissolving.

    Modern BCAA is my only go-to amino acid supplement. As others have mentioned, bulk mBCAA is a ridiculous deal.

    Why even bother with a 10:1:1 ratio? Just take bulk leucine.

    5g glutamine is also a waste of calories.

    And a 500mg EAA blend is worthless.

    Random question:

    How many calories are in 1g of BCAA? Say, 4:1:1?

    I'm only asking because I've just been looking to Try something new BCAA wise and with my buy one get one plus my employee discount it would come to $15 so at that price you think it'd be worth a try?

    Look into USPlabs bulk modern BCAA or SNS bulk leucine. Although $15 isn't a bad price
