    Homemade BCAA mix to save money


    So here is what Scivation has in their Xtend per serving....

    so in a 20g serving u'd get...

    Vitamin B6 (as Pyroxidine HCl): 20mg 500%
    L-Leucine: 7 g
    L-Glutamine: 5g
    L-Isoleucine: 3.5 g
    L-Valine: 3.5 g
    Citrulline Malate: 2 g

    While a 20g serving of the home made one would be...
    Vitamin B6 30mg
    L-Leucine: 7.5 g
    L-Glutamine: 3 g
    L-Isoleucine: 3.75 g
    L-Valine: 3.75 g
    Citrulline Malate: 3 g

    Wouldn't it be the same if i went out and bought 1000g of BCAA mix, l-glutamine powder, and some citrulline powder from custom, and added some B-complex for the vitamin b6 to help absorption.... put it in a shaker bottle w/ some crystal light and WOLAH, same exact stuff? or am i wrong...

    cuz if i'm right its cheaper this way, jsut someone lemme know if its the same as far as effectveness n such! thanks guys!

    I looked into this a while back, in the end I'd rather just pay 5 more dollars.

    BCAA's are good to use for sure. But, IMO, the benefits of use and difference in formulas is so minescule to your average fit recreational athlete I would go with the score of bulk BCAA's from whichever sponsor you choose. If taste and other minute things are that critical to you then drop the extra bucks on what you want.

    Unless you are going to be examining the difference at the cellular level...no big difference IMO. Keep in mind it is just that...my opinion.

    I looked at the same solution - easier to pay for it all mixed already, less hassle for $5 more. The cheapest solution is to find foreign bulk powder suppliers that all these guys get them from. But in the end you have to buy a decent supply amount - it's also not that easy to find.
