    Leucine and other amino's lack of MIXABILITY


    Anyone have any tricks to get them to dissolve into the water better. The stuff sits on top of the water noio matter what I try (blender, spoon-mixed, etc). Anyway to get it into the water better? A touch of oil maybe?

    Not sure why this is, but I've heard true bcaa's just won't mix in water.

    Keep shaking vigorously, might also help to let it sit in the fridge for 20-30mins if you can, or longer to give it a chance to dissolve, otherwise, just chug

    The vigorous shaking will do the trick, just make sure you have enough water. I've heard that if the water has a lower PH (eg by adding some lemon) it causes them to dissolve. Unfortunately I've also heard about there being some sort of negative side effect on muscle growth from low PH (I wish I could be more specific, but I honestly can't remember off hand).

    k

    Riddle me this. How does scivation make their xtend so mixable? Are they using some type of space-aged BCAA's that we dont know about? I mean, xtend mixes without any problem at all, but when trying to mix bulk BCAA's, its pretty much a disaster. Im thinking of adding CM, TAURINE, ETC....then dumping lots of propel or crystal light and see what happens.

    I found that adding lemon helped me dissolve stuff, and it really doesn't have to alter the pH that much to make it more soluble from my past experiences. I don't usually bother with that though, I just throw a mound of BCAA's in water and keep giving it little shakes, by the time I'm at the gym there's only a few snowflakes on top of the water.

    Crystal light + 30 grams bulk BCAA's + a gallon of water = No problems at all.

    The vigorous shaking is right. You gotta shake it like a polaroid picture.
