    Arrow ICE vs. Excell


    Any real difference between ICE and Excell. Seems like the same products, but ICE being a much better deal based on the price per servings; comments?

    Ice and Scivation's Extend are about the same amino profile but you also get a gram of Citrulline Malate per serving in the Extend. I also noticed the number of servings listed on Nutraplanet for Ice is wrong, it should be half that or you could say the amino breakdown as listed is for two servings. Excell does have a different amino profile, the BCAA's are about the same in all three but instead of having 2.5g of Glutamine, like Ice and Extend, it has 2.5g of Taurine. They all cost within 1$ of each other per container. 90 servings in the Extend, 90.5 servings in the Ice and 100 servings in the Excell.

    Thanks for the clarification on the servings with ICE. Compared it elsewhere and your right, the specified amount per serving is actually for 2 scoops, not 1 scoop. I was wondering why it seemed so much cheaper.

    Good to know, but any idea why the serving size is incorrect on the label here? Makes it sound like you are getting twice as much, but that is not the case.

    Please clarify, our serving size has always been 2 scoops or 10 grams. This is stated right on our labels.

    Exactly, here is the label according to NP:

    Supplement Facts

    Serving Size: 1 scoops (5g)
    Servings per Container: 181

    Amount Per Serving
    L-Leucine 3420mg
    L-Isoleucine 1590mg
    L-Valine 1830mg
    L-Glutamine 2770mg
    Vitamin B6 10mg

    Shouldn't it be Serving Size: 2 scoops (10g)
    Servings per Container: 90

    Amount Per Serving
    L-Leucine 3420mg
    L-Isoleucine 1590mg
    L-Valine 1830mg
    L-Glutamine 2770mg
    Vitamin B6 10mg

    Makes a BIG difference as the current label on here makes it sound like you are getting twice the amount compared to what you really end up with.

    Knowing Nutra Planet and Xtreme Formulations I am sure it was nothing intentional.

    Definitely, I am sure it is hard enough keeping everything updated and accurate as it is with all the hundreds of products.
