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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

    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.

    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.

    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.
