    Mike you are a man after my own heart! Get some of the BSL flavoring in, I hear they are good.....and what is the culprit for the bad taste?

    eh, tastes decent, i actually bought 12 PET 2 ounce bottles, they're like 50 cents a piece with caps, and I put a teaspoon of bcaa powder and a teaspoon of gatorade powder, definitely doable, i drink 6 a day on lifting days and the taste isn't bad at all, the texture is a little gross as the bcaa's fight for their lives to not absorb, but o well, cheap as hell to do too

    i think high dose of Leucine alone is enough for increased muscle synthasis (if theory is true)

    i dont know if Valin have an added value it can be used as an energy source in the muscles when muscle glycogen levels is low so it could be anti-catabolic while dieting, but not anabolic.it maintainthe nitrogen balance in the body, and that maybe thats it for the muscle.


    Isoleucine is necessary for hemoglobin formation and in stabilizing and regulating blood sugar and energy levels so it has small role in protein synthasis.

    i dont think if you take high dose of one amino acid that will cause an imbalance. people have been taking isolated amino since years and nothing happened (arginine, glutamine, l-carnantine). i dont know if high dose BCAA is worth the money, when coasts more than my AAS cycle.

    but maybe taking high dose of Leucine alone is worth the experiment. truprotein sells it for cheap. 100g for 4.8$

    here is a study and descusstion about Leucine supplementation.

    Yes but not everyone wants to muck around with their endocrine system
    I do wish BCAA price dropped though.

    the one's I got were blue 2 ounce bottles, cant remember where i got em from but they're easy to find

    PET is just a special type of plastic i think, mega cheap, won't break, being a college student makes having these things awesome, i take one at about 6am then i just bring a couple to the rec center for immediately pre workout at about 645, then have one about midworkout, then space the final 3 out throughout the day, i just dont like carrying around gallon jugs all the time, plus having it in small doses in a 1:1 ratio with gatorade powder makes it easy to take

    Someone (X Muscle) should do a test with just Leucine to see how it works, though if Beast feels that the other two are needed I will trust his judgement....I need to start rereading all the BCAA's studies again!

    is leucine on its own that much cheaper? a kilo of all 3 bcaa's for 40 bucks will last about a month, not too expensive really compared to some of the other stuff you could pay for

    Dammit I wish Scivation was in my pricerange. Neurostim is one of the best products I have ever tried. However, I am a dedicated Primaforce user. Grape Substance WPI is like a cheat treat for me, but I get it every time I workout.

    Look at Derek shelling out the science...

    is leucine on its own that much cheaper? a kilo of all 3 bcaa's for 40 bucks will last about a month, not too expensive really compared to some of the other stuff you could pay for
    You can easily get a kilo of straight l-leucine for $50.

    You can less easily get ones a lot cheaper than that.
