    Look into nimbus bodyguard sugar-free. One serving has a full 5g leucine (1g of other BCAAs), plus b-Alanine and the poseidon complex (b-vitamins, electrolytes, taurine, etc).If you want to boost the ratio even higher, SNS Leucine is extremely affordable and I add it to pretty much any BCAA product I may be using before fasted training.

    Very few sites are carrying the Nimbus line (you know of one of them). I've heard they are revamping the line, or something. However, I wish they would keep the boards updated with information.

    Used to be Xtend but now Modern BCAAs. The flavors tastes great. They are not aggressively flavored so the taste is too strong. No artificial coloring so I didn't have any stomach discomfort. It also didn't stain my bottle. Great ratio 8:1:1. And a form of glutamine that has more stability in water. Plus you get electrolytes. Fairly priced too.

    I've dabbled in a bunch of different brands

    Although taste isn't number 1 on modern. Atleastthebflavor I get but it's cheap and I can now tell Te difference after adding it bak in

    Cheap and effective and you get a ton for the price. No need to really try anything else IMO

    I've heard Modern BCAA by USPlabs is really good...I've personally never tried it
    Xtend always a solid choice
    I'm trying silk AA by TN right now, they have worked great so far but only 2 weeks in

    Compete can't really be described as a BCAA and EAA powder with 2.5g of whey hydrolysate. Not that I dislike the profile.

    Another vote for Modern BCAA. 8:1:1 ratio. Good flavours.

    I like aminolast by gaspari, it isn't 4:1 ratio but its a solid product

    As far as EAA vs BCAA, BCAA is what you want since BCAA have glucogenic properties allowing your body to use them as fuel sources like glucose

    They are more useful while dieting but can be helpful in a bulk as well

    Well, insulin release is different when comparing carbs and BCAAs. BCAAs only initiate the first phase of insulin release, and the resulting spike in insulin. However, there isn't the long-term insulin production since BCAAs don't actually affect blood glucose.

    Thank you for clarifying, I knew there was a twist to it but I've always been foggy on the subject matter
