    How many grams of BCCA per day?

    I know what the recommendation is as far as 6 scoops or so during training and as much throughout the day as possible. But, I notice that BCAA on the packaging doesn't say how many grams I am taking in, perhaps I'm reading it wrong? Is there a recommended amount such as the old protein 1.5 g pr lb of body weight?

    The megadosing seems to have worked very well for many of the guys on here. So well that I am actually thinking of upping my intake this off-season. Specially with how crazy my schedule will be.

    That's a BOUND amino and it functions way differently within the body than a FREE FORM amino.

    I'll recomend to all of you the BCAA
    From optimum nutrition. Is powder and each service has 5gm. And you should take 1 in the morning when you wake up, 1 before, and after work out and 1 more before go to bed.

    Xtend has 7G per "service". ANd has a good taste. Not the natural bitter flavor that BCAA's have to offer.

    I think 25g whey protein has like 6g BCAAs.

    BCAAs in whey protein are bonded via peptide bond. Once liberated by trypsin,pepsin,and these major protease enzymes they are in their "free form"- just like the BCAAs in Xtend. The idea with Xtend is you can take them right in the free form and at higher concentrations. Free form aminos bypass all enzymatic digestion and can hit the blood very quickly whereas a protein must first be degraded into peptide subunits and then further broken down into free form amino acids by enzymes in the small intestine.

    Cliffs:

    Xtend: Bcaa's go right in teh blood
    Whey: BCAAs may take around an hour or so to hit the blood
    Your achievements in life mean NOTHING without aesthetics

    So the obvious question would be is there protien out there that has free form BCAA's in it? While I'm sure that would drive up the price, and make the mixibility go down, that it would be very popular, yes?
