Leucine vs BCAAs

  1. Leucine vs BCAAs


    Is Leucine just as good as BCAAs?

    I usually just put 5-10g of BCAAs in my workout drink. I'm thinking of either substituting it w/ leucine or simply using like 5g BCAAs & 10g Leucine. Possibly trying the whole Megadose thing, but w/ leucine instead.

    Leucine's about 30% cheaper than BCAAs.

    Here's a good Norton article:

    Interesting article man.. I am taking xtend now, and I love it. I would also like to know what's the difference with the two, and if there is a synergy between them..

  3. Leucine is one of the BCAAs...that is the relationship between them.

    I will dig some things up as far as the role of Valine and Isoleucine (the other two)

    Hmmm. So Xtend HAS some in it... Interesting

  5. xtend watermelon is good stuff..they also just came out with lemonade xtend but havent tried it yet

  6. Xtend uses the same 2:1:1 ratio of BCAAs as our bulk product, with added b6, Glutamine, and Citrulline Malate.
