    BCAA vs multivitamin?

    Should i take BCAA supplement and a Mulitivitamin?One or the other? It seems like they have alot of the same ingredients in them.

    I'd stick with a good multi. Chances are you're getting enough BCAAs via your protein consumption during the day.

    I would make sure you have a multi first, and if you feel BCAA's could help you, then go for it.

    ^^This.

    What multi are you looking at that has a ton of BCAAs in it? Only two I can think of is BB.com foundation series (really low dose) and Opti-men (still low). Animal Pak has an AA pill in it too.

    I would do a multi, its like your insurance policy! Especially if you are eating like a competitor...we eat the same things day in and day out and we miss out on some vitamins and minerals with the lack of variety of veggies and protein. Now there is multi's out there that have a BCAA complex so maybe these would be your go to.

    Why before bed? Don't you just down a protein shake close to bed time?

    multi vitamins and BCAAs are pretty different. A good multi is good to add.

    BCAAs are more contriversal... some love them some hate them. I personally love them. PM me for some samples of our Recover Pro and I'll mail you some

    He must have seen a BCAA with electrolytes (calcium, potassium,sodium, and magnesium.) and thought that those 4 minerals are enough for healthy body functions.

    As everyone said they are different you can't compare. I know I eat enough meat, dairy, and poultry to get amino acids. I do not eat enough vegtables to get enough Vitamin K daily. So for me multi vitamin it is. Now OP if you are vegeterian and eat your greens and fruits all day then maybe you need the extra BCAA.

    Just a note, the vitamin K you get from veggies isn't really the kind your body needs much of (K1). Your body actually needs a lot of vitamin K2, that comes from animal products.

    With that in mind, the whole notion of kale being a superfood is complete bunk. Kale is looked at as being high in calcium (yeah, for a plant, but calcium is still better sourced from dairy), high in beta carotene (great for eye health but the whole idea of it being able to fight cancer is complete hyperbole), and it being high in vitamin K (yeah, high in vitamin K1 which is NOT the same as vitamin K2). So, there is that :P Not saying that veggies are not great, there's plenty of other micros in them that we really do need and should get plenty of, vitamin K however is not one of them.

    Yep my thoughts exactly. A multi is more important IMO.

    What is your goal with those supps?

    BCAA: will only reduce post-workout inflammation (DOMS) - THIS IS SOMETHING I EXPERIENCED!! (some articles confirm this also)
    MVs: are useless unless you have some deficiency or if youre a elite sportsman that is depleted of micro after every training session,

    Anyway there are articles that confirm decrease in soreness (if you take them during workout), so i tried it. And to my surprise it worked, no soreness!! Im very skeptical to supps, so i stopped taking them and the soreness came back after a while, so im taking them again haha. It might be a placebo effect. I should have mentioned that the reduction in soreness is something I experienced!!

    No soreness? You sure you were training properly? LoL. I get so upset if I don't have any soreness by the late evening (I train at around 5:40 in the morning, by around 9 at night or so, I usually am able to feel some soreness in the muscles I've hit in the morning).

    haha i think i did train properly (maybe i didnt, have to to my own research article...), anyway i meant soreness as: can barely walk down/up the stairs or lift things and pain on touching, that i did not have.

    Here are the articles i was talking about
    Branched-chain amino acid ingestion can ameliorate soreness from eccentric exercise.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19997002

    Branched-chain amino acid supplementation before squat exercise and delayed-onset muscle soreness.

    Branched-chain amino acid supplementation and indicators of muscle damage after endurance exercise
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18156664

    Branched-chain amino acids activate key enzymes in protein synthesis after physical exercise.

    I have not had that sort of soreness since when I first started training. Ha ha ha. I miss those days when I can get that sore, it meant that I didn't have to work as hard at it to get sore :P
