Some users can't tolerate bulk DAA. For that, we have sodium-DAA (SNS brand) or chelated (testforce 2).

I am currently taking Formula-X too and I am having exactly the same problem even though I have had BCAAs and bulk DAA (mixed it myself with sodium bicarbonate for better solubility) before. Don't know whether the other components (L-carnitine-L-tartrate and N-acetyltyrosine) could be a problem or whether it is the combination of BCAAs and DAA that is too much for my guts.

What has helped me a bit with this problem although not completely eliminated it was drinking it over the day and not taking it at once. So, I took it to work and was sipping on it all day long.

[QUOTE=redms;3728277]Just got two tubs of formula x started Monday and about 1 hour after I take it I'm running to the toilet. What I can't work out is that I've had all of the ingredients before in other products. Anyone know what it could be.[/QUOT
don't know what it can be but i had the exact same experience through-out entire tub.

I know that amino acids have different solubilities per se and different pH values at which they have their greatest solubility. Anyways, all BCAAs (which only have aliphatic side chains) have similar pKa values, so their optimal solubility is at similar pH values. And when I do use BCAAs separately, I generally use micronized BCAAs, which are supposed to have a better solubility than non-micronized BCAAs.

Thanks for all the input. I'm glad I wasn't the only one having this problem. The last DAA was SS caps and was spread out over the day. If I was to do this with formula x would this make the other ingredients redundant. Cheers

N-acetyl-tyrosine is a more bioavailable form of tyrosine, and tyrosine is a precursor of dopamine and norepinephrine. So, it may improve mood and according to Athletix increases aggression. Therefore, on training days taking it before a workout would be best.
I don't believe in any form of carnitine being very helpful for fat loss but certain forms of carnitin definitely have their merit. L-carnitine-L-tartrate, for example, has been shown to improve recovery after workouts. Here, timing doesn't seem to be as important.
BCAAs should generally be taken pre- and/or post-workout because they are the most important amino acids in the induction of muscle protein synthesis (especially leucine). On a strict diet, they can also be taken during other times due to their anti-catabolic effect.
