  1. Favorite BCAA powder?


    Favorite BCAA powder? Trying to find a high concentration of Leucine. 4:1:1 or 8:1:1 Thanks!


  2. 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.

  3. recoverpro is 4:1:1 and for the price and servings....it's really a good value

    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.

  5. ModernBCAA have an 8:1:1 ratio and tastes awesome & mixes like a gem.

  6. Check out Inner armour bcaa peak its is 12:1:1 Levine loaded and the flavor is good also.

  7. 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.

  8. How a about core nutritionals abc? Or muscle pharms amino 1? Any one try any of these?

    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

    Bulk Modern BCAA (1 kg)

    IMHO You cannot beat it anywhere for price and quality!

  12. 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.

  16. What's everyone's opinion regarding EAAs v. BCAAs?

    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

  27. ENDURANCE By FORMUTECH NUTRITION!!! Best BCAA product I've tried by far. I like it better than extend.

    In my experience, no. Your best bet it so pre-mix your BCAA supplement the night before and store it in the fridge.

  32. modern bcaa def did not mix well at all lol.

    xtend mixes like a beauty, so does aminocore. Both taste great. Dymatize recoup also was good.


    anything instantized will be good, I usually use optimum instantized whey (unflavored). Best bang for your buck

  33. I used Bulk Modern when I experimented with IF. I found mixing it and letting it sit for a few minutes was sufficient.

  34. I've been a huge fan of cytosports monster amino, 8 to 1 ratio and has added citrulline, tastes great and not expensive

    If you follow the label recommendations, it mixes fine. Don't with colder water and less than 10oz of liquid. Shake it for about 30seconds.

    I was virtually not following any if these guidelines and it just stayed pure foam....

    That is exactly how I do it and it has never failed. Actually it's usually fully dissolved long before i wake to train in the morning.

    $/g - I cannot see ever buying anything else but BULK Modern BCAA.

    as mentioned - eaa have bcaa, and so much more. there is more to growth than bcaas only..
    while i too enjoy leucine, it is easy to add bulk in if i need to..in the meantime, i have a more efficient and complete recovery/growth spectrum of aminos.

    no doubt.
