I am interested in adding an EAA supp. to my arsenal. I have peaked interest in Controlled Labs Purple Wraath and Primaforce EAA(just hit the shelves). I am just looking for a collection of opionions on how useful it is, especially comparing to BCAA. And is everyone using just one scoop(serving) or more, since at $50 it could be expensive if people arent seeing results unless using a ton. So if you have used any EAA product, whether it be one I mentioned above, bulk or just another product please give me some input. Thanks a lot guys.

I've thought about but have never supplemented with eaa but Custom sells bulk 500 grams for less than 30 bucks.

I used 20 grams daily as an anti-catabolic during a cutting phase and liked the results. Taste is pretty bad unless you use some Crystal Light.

The all-in ones like PW will give you more as you have BCAA's, EAA's, Citrulinne etc...

An essential amino acid for an organism is an amino acid that cannot be synthesized by the organism and therfore must be supplied as part of it's diet.
There are ten essential amino acids, but only eight of them are considered essential to us, and three of these essentials we already get from BCAA's so that leaves five that are of concern. Histidine and arginine are essential only in children and possibly seniors so we'll take them out of the picture.
(6) Leucine (BCAA)
(7) Isoleucine (BCAA)
(8) Valine (BCAA)
So when searching for the best EAA product, keep in mind that the first five EAA's listed above are the ones to focus on.
On a side note, you can get.... ALL of these EAA's in pretty good amounts from any quality protein shake, but I'm sure additional supplementation would be of benefit to anyone.

Thanks for all the info guys. I guess I left this out, has anyone tried EAA and compared to a BCAA. Like used Purple Wraath vs Xtend, standalone per say. I have some BCAA's left, but once I run out I was debating whether or not to get EAA's instead and try or just go back with more BCAA's. Any input putting these two against each other. And yes, I am fully aware that EAA's contain the 3 BCAA's. Thanks

I have tried both with added leucine and noticed no difference. I would rather go with BCAA because of the taste of EAA and the effect they have on your breath. I know Primal EAA is as cheap as bulk EAA, but if you look around you can find MRM BCAA+G for under $37. I don't really care about Citrulline Malate as it has made no difference to me.
