    Well, I mean people seem to like modern BCAA and it is an 8:1:1 ratio as opposed to others that are 2:1:1 or 4:1:1, so it's possible that ratio may have something to do with it. You never know. But you're right it is unlikely considering it is Leucine that has the most effect and obviously modern BCAA would have more leucine than others with that ratio. So it is more the amount of one amino as opposed to the ratio itself . So basically, I think SAAs definitely have some beneficial effect that many other products don't have, but that rratio thing is BS

    BCAA's like recoverpro that don't mix very well, I mix up in warm water and then let it sit for a bit. It will usually mix in then. Kinda a pain if you're in a hurry though. My favorite is probably Axis Labs N'Gage because it mixes instantly with no problems and tastes great.

  4. Yeah the high leucine content of RecoverPro makes for a bunch of luecine floaties but it mixes pretty good for not being instantized. If you put it in cold water in a shaker and shake it up then wait 5 minutes or so and shake it again it normally gets rid of them.

  6. How's InnerŽ Armour BCAA Peak blue rasberry for $10.97 for the first tub and $5.48 for the second tub?

  7. I use HumaPro for my EAA and Chain'D Out for my BCAA.

    Every morning I consume 1 scoop of HumaPro, 1 scoop of Chain'D Out and 2 scoops Alphamine..

  8. Thanks, I'll check them out.

  9. What do you look for in a BCAA supplement? what amino acids and what quantity per serving? I notice they tend to be L-Leucine, L-Valine and L-isoleucine. Some include others. Is the quantity user weight dependent?

  10. Most supplement studies are severely flawed. They contain a few hundred participants, are done quickly (less than 2 years) and are thin micro analysis's at best. With that being said, things that have worked for many years in the sport (bcaas) are probably the best.

    No, they actually contain far less than a few hundred participants, which would have been ideal.

    Shoot for about 4-5g leucine in a single bolus.

  13. BCAA consist of Leucine IsoLeucine and Valine. TRhe most important being Leucine. when you see a ratio it is the Leucine first followed by the other two. Such as 3:1:1. If leucine is doseded at 6g then Iso and Valine would be 2g.

    I personally use BCAA different when cutting compared to bulking. With cutting I drink three times a day, when bulking I eat so much I usually take first thing in the am while I get ready and drive to work before I eat my first meal which is as soon as I get there and then intra workout.

    Damn bro you are spending some money on dem der Amino's. HumPro, which I am a huge fan of for cutting is very expensive. However, it provides the equivelent of 24g of protein without the calories. Keeps those muscle fed.

    I know thats the norm, but this is not a complete protein. It's science over my head so heres the link to check out. I ve used this pre comp and cut down fast.

    HumaProŽ: HumaProŽ is a protein matrix with a Net Nitrogen Utilization rate of 99:1. In short 99% is used purely as proteins to repair and increase protein mass (like muscle, soft tissues etc). In short if you eat a day’s supply of protein shakes, meats, eggs, foul etc., the stomach breaks down the bulk of it, then it goes into the intestinal track for further break down into amino acids, glucose and fat (protein does not have calories, by-products do) and the waste products of each. Next stop is the liver which further breaks down the protein chains and creates an amino acid ratio (matrix) meant for the human body. In short, the end result is what is left over with the waste removed (then the waste sent to the toilet or deposited around your waist)…what is left over with the waste removed is HumaProŽ. It allows the body to focus upon other processes like health, recovery and growth rather than detoxification and screwed up body compositioning. Oh, and its 100% pre-digested. 1g of HumaProŽ is equal to 5.6g of pharma-quality whey isolate. But without the 4.6g loss to waste and waist.

    As great as that sounds, is there any clinical reference to support these claims? I'm not arguing with you. I just question the validity of this manufacture's claims without reference.

  18. There was a huge argument on a UK forum when ALRI offered HumaPro as a sponsored logging opportunity regarding those claims.

    Mr. Cooper, I read in a bb forum that you like Power Shock. I am wondering what your opinion is on amino acid nitrates. I'm wondering if the nitrate moiety does something other than acting as a donor to the amino acid. If it just acts as a donor, would it increase the bioavailability? Or would something like 'leucine nitrate' just seperate molecules to allow leucine to do it's thing and the nitrate to go do it's thing?

    I cannot image how any of these claims can be substantiated outside a clinical/physiological testings environment. This is quite beyond anecdotal or even regular laymen analytical assessment or sponsor logging. Neither of which can tell me what is taking place in my digestive/intestinal bio/physio process. The things he (Author) is claiming can only be validated or quantified in a clinical laboratory environment IMHO. Hence - reference?

  21. With creatine nitrate, I love the vascularity it provides at 1 gram of it. 1 gram seems to be the standard. I know that the vasodialation is from the nitrates.

    With a product I just saw from App Nut called 'NO Uptake', I noticed the 'leucine nitrate' as part of the proprietary blend. An amino acid nitrate in the proper amount, would alone give a really great pump and great vascularity, let alone any of the other ingredients.

    I'm also wondering if there's a reason why they chose 'leucine nitrate' over something else that's gotten great user feedback like 'creatine nitrate', or maybe something else like arginine nitrate or citrulline nitrate? Is it because they could be the first to use the designer 'nitrate' of 'leucine nitrate', but it really doesn't matter?

    Nah, it doesn't increase the bioavailability of the amino acid (which is near 100% anyway). But the nitrate obviously has performance enhancing effects.

    Thanks, Coop. It didn't seem like it would do much more than that, just checking with you.

  24. I've been using Amino1 by MP. It taste amazing and I feel it has been helping me a lot with recovery. I have the fruit punch and also some orange mago that I have yet to try. Anyone else tried this product before?

  25. I was curious on MP Amino1 as well, haven't seen much review about it...
