I remember my father swallowing handfuls of amino tabs back in the 80s and 90’s…… I used to laugh at all the old guys taking amino tabs…..

But now that I’m old, I’m thinking that if I had a pill box filled with them in my pocket I could take 2-3 grams of aminos every 2-3 hours and maybe get some real benefit. So has anyone try this? It should help right? They are pretty damn cheap.

Help with what exactly? As long as you are getting enough protein you should be golden. Also, most of those amino products are just protein powder in tab or cap form.

Maybe desiccated liver tabs? Similar concept. Universal has had desiccated liver tabs forever. 250 tabs with 3g protein per two tabs. Plus micronutrients for $25. Just like every other company, comes from grass fed Argentine cattle. Just ordered a bottle for the first time. Figured some extra protein and nutrients can’t hurt

The idea would be to keep my amino blood levels constant all day.....

I ordered a 400 tablet bottle of Universal 100%Beef Aminos for 25 bucks the other day (hence my post here)....... But I like your idea too...... Plus the Uni-Liver ones you have are 1500mgs of protein per tab instead of 1 gram per tab in the ones I ordered.... I will def upgrade to the liver tabs next time.

If your eating 5-6 meals a day you always have amino acids in your bloodstream, but you do realize you could just put a scoop or 2 of eaa's in your water bottle instead of walking around popin pills all day.

Either way, it's not going to make any significant difference in anything unless maybe your someone who only eats 1 or 2 times a day. Then I could see it having some benefits in-between meals, still less benefits then just eating more frequently tho

I am just getting back to a very low calorie diet so I can hit 8% BF....... So yeah I figure I will pop these things all day between my measly meals.

I actually felt like these worked very well for me.

Just remember something, aminos still give you a insulin spike, if your goal is loosing fat you what your glucose levels low and stable, not spiking 10 times a day

Others in the past seemed to give me a nice boost. I know that it’s the fad now but liver is very healthy but I just hate eating it. I know liver tabs aren’t as good as the real thing but they are at least cold processed and have some good nutrients. Better than no liver I assume and if I get some extra protein from it as well so be it

You don’t want to constantly keep amino levels elevated all day, you want them to dip some to maximize protein synthesthis during your next meal

But I have a tub of amino tabs that I find useful when…you have a meal that may not be as high in protein…example, you are in a rush, throw something together that’s 15-20g of protein…take some tabs with your meal to in theory maximize the protein synthesis
