    What is the best BCAA product and why?


  2. Bulk BCAAs, added to either Xtend, ICE, or Excell
    Evolutionary Muse - Inspire to Evolve
    Flawless Skin Couture - We give you the tools to make you Flawless

  3. I am not sure if the Xcell up there is the same just spelled incorrectly or not.

    I f you want samples of Excell you can get them here:

    Whey Protein Isolate Concentrate, Cycle Support, diet, supplements - Trial Samples

  4. I'm going to have to go with Xtend, since that's what I use but they're all pretty much the same.

  5. Excell...hands down.

    I have to say, the bulk BCAA's from NP are excellent. I've ordered from other sites and got poor mixability. NP's are very fine, and mix terrifically.

    Hey Crowler, how do I order an Excell sample as opposed to a whey protein one? The site just says "sample".

    Hey M4gnum,

    Thank you for your questions.

    In the comments section just indicate that you want the Excell and what flavor.

  9. Since Excell and Xtend are the same thing and I can get Excell cheaper and I like my rasberry flavor quite a lot, I'm gonna have to go with Excell.

  10. Bulk L-Leucine w/out the designer bullsh*t to go along with it.

    What is exactly is BS about Excell or Xtend? They're both BCAAs, Glutamine, Citrulline, and B-6. Nothing really fancy: just simple and effective.

    No BS, just too expensive. If your eating right, then bulk leucine is all you need and is king for protein synthesis. CM is cool too, a lot more functional than arginine IMO. Glutamine is super meh...and I personally don't think a person will see any difference from taking it or not.

    NOt really a fan of CM. Glutamine is arguably worthless. But although Leucine is the most important of the 3, I've read that Isoleucine and valine are important in preventing an imbalance.

    I agree. Bulk Leucine does the job . The most important BCaa.
    Research shows it. Pubmed dot com

    The only way to create an imbalance is if you are in a fasted state and only supplementing w/ free form leucine as your predominate amino source. Other than that if your eating a normal diet high in animal protein then you are in no state to create an imbalance with l-leucine supplementation. Many great minds have already beat the imbalance issue to death and l-leucine is king hands down.

    good info. Maybe I'll start paying half as much for my aminos now.

  17. bump for the bulk bcaas. xtend grape taste pretty good though. but for the $$ bulk is the only way to go.

  18. some bulk bcaa added to AI's Excell
    btw, i think Universal's Animal Nitro is not just a BCAA, it's an EAA product

    I think many may be confused and think Excell is simply BCAA's and flavoring. Remember it also contains CM, Glutamine and B-6...all of which are very synergistic. I like the idea of adding Bulk BCAA's to Excell though...

    Glutamine is useless and I can get plenty of B-6 from my diet.
    I do like CM for my cardio.

    But I'd have to say Leucine for the win. (PUBMED)

  21. check out Purple Wraath. Its an EAA (so it includes BCAA as well). you can get a free sample. see the thread int his section or in our company section

    yea ur right, thanks

  25. I recently bought BCAA from BN and had heard about BCAA's mixing so poorly. This didn't have that issue. I mixed it in a shaker bottle w/ waxy maize and V-12 Turbo and everything mixed fine.

  26. Axis Labs BCAA Ethyl Ester with ICE.

    That's how I roll it and LOVE it.

    I also LOVED Controlled Labs Purple WRAATH, very solid product.
    I'm Back...

  27. I love to Xtend my **** into my woman! Im thinking of going the bulk BCAA's next time b/c it will last for a few months! Got to love NutraPlanet so we can remain cheap bastards!

    yes, purple wraath is awesome and the updated ver 3 grape flavor has started shipping as of last week.

  29. Axis Labs - BCAA Ethyl Ester.

    Mainly bc I don't have to mix up another drink. Also use Xtend sometimes too.

    I mix Poseidon with Excell and a few other goodies...EXCELLENT workouts!

    Axis Labs and Controlled Labs both seem to have some interesting products I'm going to have to try mixed with my Pre workout Poseidon/Excell concoction.

    Thats what I'm talkin about!

  32. I love to mix lemonade Xtend with watermelon Xtend.....it is VERY tasty, and is not as tart as lemonade alone.

  33. Yo, do you think that the multi-vitamin Animal Pak contains enuf amino acids where a person really would have to get a bcaa on the side?? (just tryin to save money where possible, but also willin to spend to keep the body healthy, ya know)

    considering most people talk about taking at least 5g/day min, id say u need to get another supp. animal pak only has .1g leucine and .76g valine, but no isoleucine.

  35. I feel that it is difficult to say 'which is the best' ? I think the poll should say 'What is the most popular and what is the most used BCAAs' ?

  36. I currently have bulk BCAAs, but they are pretty nasty tasting so I have to mix with crystal light or tang. I will be purchasing Xtend or Wraath though and adding my bulk BCAAs into it though. Why spending money on a bunck of aspartame or splenda with crystal light when I can buy xtend/wraath for similar price?

  37. Buy bulk n' cap it.

    I thought about that. But then I got wondering how many caps it would take to get like 10grams of BCAA into it? That stuff is so fine, powdery, and light that you'd probably have to swallow 15 of those babies. I could be totally wrong though, maybe somebody with actual experience can correct me.

    They have some capping sets and just buy the biggest caps they have. You put the caps in a slot then run something across the powder till all the caps are full. Then just put on the tops.

    I'm anything I take I always always always opt for pills/caps before mixing powder. Its just more convient for me that way.

  40. Different caps have different amounts of powder so, yeah you might wind up taking quite a few of them. I actually cap my metamucil b/c I hate mixing it up in water or drink..(damn stuff dosen't even dissolve anyway and just sinks to the bottom...lol)
