Poll: What is the best BCAA product?

Best BCAA

Page 3 of 4 First 1234 Last

  1. xcell gets my votes, tons of flavors and they listened when we wanted taurine instead of glutamine!

    awesome and responsive company


  2. Xtend just tastes the best, and when you drink the **** 3 times a day, you'll appreciate the flavour varieties.

    I really wish there was Xtend Lemonaid Flavour, but insted of BCAA, EAA/Leucine + Creatine Mono, Beta-alanine, Citruline Malate (all at 5g each)
    Someone bring my dreams to life.

  3. my vote OtheR:

    CORE ABC, taste great too

  4. How does Watermelon Xtend taste?

  5. Watermelon Xtend + bulk BCAA is the way to go for me. I just ordered more Xtend and will be trying grape, lemonade, and orange. I mix equal number of scoops of Xtend and bulk BCAA.

    Yep, crystal lite works great, especially the raspberry flavor, completely masks the flavor if you use enough.

  11. will try it. thanks

  12. Core Nutritionals - Core ABC


    Core ABC was specifically designed to build muscle, prevent catabolism (muscle loss), increase endurance, and enhance recovery when taken before and during an exercise program.

    Each serving of Core-ABC contains:

    A - 10 grams of branch-chain Amino Acids Leucine (5 grams), Isoleucine (2.5 grams), and Valine (2.5 grams) to enhance recovery and build muscle by helping promote protein synthesis. The amino acid Glutamine is also included to help maintain a positive nitrogen balance during intense training.

    B - 2.5 grams of Beta-Alanine, which has been shown to increase skeletal muscle carnosine levels that delay the onset of fatigue and enhance endurance by reducing lactic acid buildup and increasing aerobic efficiency.

    C - 2.5 grams of Citrulline Malate to reduce lactic acid and ammonia concentrations while increasing nitric oxide (NO) and ATP production.

    Whether bulking up or slimming down, the most can be gotten out of workouts when performing at optimal efficiency, and the ingredients in Core ABC are ideal for maximizing exercise performance and aiding recovery.

  14. Watermelon Xtend!!! Green Apple is pretty tasty too
  15. nutraplanet bulk bcaa's?


    so are the nutraplanet bulk bcaa's free form? I heard free form are the best as far as absorption

  16. I may just look in to getting leucine only next time. Iv been reading more that if we are consuming whole complete protein than leucine would be more cost effective.

    Bump to this :-)

  18. Ok, quick question. Xtend states that it would require me to use 6 scoops per serving, due to body weight. I've ordered Bulk BCAA's from NP. Would I use one serving of BCAA to each 2 scoop serving of Xtend.
    Example: My use total for the day =3 scoops Xtend and 3 servings of BCAA?
    Just trying to make my Xtend last longer.
    I hope that isnt too confusing!!!!

  22. Makes me that Core ABC isnt even in the poll but at least its getting some recognition in the thread. The profile really is hard to beat.

    x2. this is really starting to get crazy on how ABC is left out of the mix when the ingredient profile is superior to the others!

    btw, i think Universal's Animal Nitro is not just a BCAA, it's an EAA product
    That is correct.

    For BCAAs, there's BCAA Stack (powdered drink mix), BCAA 2000 (capsules).

    For EAAs, there's Animal Nitro (capsules), EAA Stack (powdered drink mix, no carbs), and EAA Nitro (powdered drink mix, with carbs).

  25. I've done bulk bcaas, bulk leucine, xtend, and xtend+bulk bcaas. The last was my preference of those.

    I can't afford EAA/BCAAs right now, jobless me, but purple wraath and Core ABC both have great ingredient profiles! Definitely kill to give them a try.

  26. Purple Wraath for me and the new lemonade flavor is fantastic.

  27. Lots of good choices here, use a few of them myself..

    But the best BCAA complex in existence imo is MNT's Nitro E8. These things are ungodly good - you can "feel" the difference, and the results are unparalleled.

    In fairness, this is an EAA complex, but the BCAA quality is off the charts. This is the same formula of the old NitroMine, created by Dr. Eric Serrano years ago.

    Good stuff.

    Gram for gram its very expensive so I would really hope someone else had tried it.

  29. xtend hands down

    The best of the best usually is not cheap. This is a product that stands head & shoulders above anything else in it's segment.
    EAA complexes are not inexpensive to begin with.
    Try it for yourself.

    Purple Wraath is pretty awesome. And the Beta Alanine makes you tingle!

  32. Purple Wraath was one of the first supplements I ever purchased (not counting whey), and it has been a staple ever since. I also sip on Xtend throughout the day. I would have long gone to bulk powders by now, but I have some strange loyalty to PW and Xtend...

    DBC5, I agree ABC and the MRP are both top notch! As a result of enjoying Zap, I'm looking into Core more closely.

  33. Purple wraath baby.

  34. Load on L-Leucine leucine leucine...it really does work..others from any kind of decent protein shake.

    just follow bottle directions? I only workout 3 days a week. I think the write up states 5 days.......... 5 tabs pre, 10 tabs post, depending on bodyweight.

    I assume you have experience with Nitro E8? How long did you run them? Do you still run them?

    please and thank you.

    Why ester?

  37. Any bcaa ba Citrulline Malate product with out glutamine?

  38. I dont understand how bulk BCAA from nutraplanet is a better deal than Xtend? I did the math and it comes out to the bulk bcaa costing more and having only 78 servings as opposed to Xtend's 90...

  39. maybe this price was because i got xtend on sale, but it still has way more stuff than regular bulk and has an actaul taste.

    You did your math wrong. I've done this too many times to count lol.

    Supplement Facts

    Serving Size: 2 Scoops (11.5 grams)
    Servings per Container: 90


    Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
    Vitamin B6 (as Pyroxidine HCI) 10mg 167%
    L-Leucine 3.5g **
    L-Glutamine 2.5g **
    L-Isoleucine 1.75g **
    L-Valine 1.75g **
    Citruline Malate 1g

    BCAA's = 7g x 90 servings = 630g BCAA's. Don't count Glutamine, but add that in separate, same with CM. Flavouring is also a nice bonus. In the end the price difference isn't huge and the Xtend tastes awesome, but with the recent price increase in Xtend bulk BCAA's look a bit sweeter. however http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/s...asocharge.html is still $50!!!
