    Core ABC


    Core ABC

    Anyone tried? The amino profile looks pretty good, but how's the taste?


    I like the direction they are going, especially with the MRP they are offering with no maltodex, just oat and barley flour.

    If you did that in bulk from np products it would be:
    500 grams BCAAs ($19.95 for 500 grams) $19.95
    125 grams Glutamine ($4.99 for 100 grams) $6.24
    125 grams Beta-Alanine ($7.95 100 grams) $9.94
    125 grams CM ($12 for 100 grams) $15

    For a total of a little over $50 and thats with no flavoring, compared to $45 for the Core ABC.

    If you are planning on needing/wanting all the products contained in it, I'd say go for it.

    i must say props to you for doing this math and stuff but you really missed the big picture.

    you dont buy 125g of stuff. you buy a 1kilo if thats proper term for 1000g. 1000g is a lot cheaper then buying 125g intervals.

    if your bored enuff redo the math. make the equilvent of 5bottles of abc or something and then COMPARE THE PROducts and prices.

    I personally would go with xtend where you get 90 servings, and same profile minus the beta alanine. You'll get good flavoring, plus twice the servings. If you really wanted the BA, just pick up some in bulk that way the xtend flavoring would cover up the bulk flavor.

    Actually the profile is not quite the same

    CORE ABC
    Serving Size: 2 Heaping Scoops
    Servings per Container: 50

    L-Leucine 5.0g **
    L-Isoleucine 2.5g **
    L-Valine 2.5g **
    L-Glutamine 2.5g **
    Beta-Alanine 2.5g **
    Citruline Malate 2.5g **

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

    Vitamin B6 10mg 167%
    L-Leucine 3.5g **
    L-Glutamine 2.5g **
    L-Isoleucine 1.75g **
    L-Valine 1.75g **
    Citruline Malate 1g **


    to get the same in Xtend you'd probably end up with 60-70 servings instead of 90; compared to other BCAA powders out there this looks like a promising mix.

    What flavors does core come in? Either way, in my opinion xtend is a better deal, but I definitely would love to hear feedback about core.
