After reading about bpis's new "BLOX" SAA product, I just wanted to see what the BB.com folks consensus about silk amino acids is, and how they feel they could be used compared with regular EAA or BCAA products.
Here is there advertisement for BLOX..
BLOX™ - NEW DISCOVERY!
SAAs -- the perfect protein that you've never heard of ...
What exactly are SAAs?
SAAs (Silk Amino Acids) are a remarkable and innovative Amino Acid Sequence just recently discovered by a bold team of scientists. You see, SAAs are a chain of eighteen plus particular amino acids -- but, it’s not so much the eighteen that researchers found to be of greatest import … it’s five -- yes, five -- in a precise sequence and precise ratio that matter! And, when these five SAAs are in this precise sequence and precise ratio … it’s like turning on football stadium lights in pitch black darkness!!!
This Exact Sequenced Composition And Precise Ratio produces optimal pro-anabolic results!
SAAs: more muscle, more stamina, more testosterone boosting...
A rly reliable source (wikipedia), states the following:
Predominant composition of silk amino acids (by weight*):
I'm trying to figure out how viable this supplement actually is vs. standard bcaa/eaa and what not... and seeing the above ratio's just has me wondering all together about this product.
This study below looks to be somewhat promising, in mice at least.
