    "Best BCAA supplement" ?

    With several BCAA threads going on at this time, I was hoping to get some advice on what to get. I'm looking at:

    Xtend, Nitro/Nitro G, or Universal BCAA Stack AAC

    but am also open to other recommendations.
    I am leaning toward Xtend -- not too badly priced for the large size: 90 "servings" for $50. I'd take one serving pre and one serving post workout, so this would last me 45 days... not too bad.

    On the Nitro vs. Nitro G (or any pill vs. powder for that matter), what is recommended? I'd like to get only one product this go around, but I can see the convenience of caps or tabs for taking BCAAs any time other than postworkout (when I'd want to take a powder).

    Thanks, and tho I know it's sort-of been answered in other threads, hopefully this consolidates the thinking a bit and helps others out too...

    My favorite is Scivation Xtend, Ive also tried Bulk BCAA and I regret that because they tasted horrible. Scivation xtend taste great and works great. I recommend watermellon over grape but both are good. Here is some feedback from people who have tried xtend

    My favorite is Scivation Xtend as well ... the taste is amazing and I would pretty much live off the stuff if I could afford to do so! Until then though, I just sip on it throughout the day at school and use it before/during my workouts. I, like young_squatter, recommend the watermelon over the grape.

    It tastes like Kool-Aid.

    Slated,
    Thanks for mentioning All In One -- I thought it was another kitchen-sink type product until you made me take a closer look. You know, an NO, creatine, pre-workout stim, and all that rolled into one... I didn't know it's an EAA/BCAA product.

    Just to confirm: That's all it is, right? And some carbs... but not a bunch of other stuff.
    How's the carb-free? I notice bb.com doesn't carry it.

    I'm yet to try the carb free, but personally I've become immune to the taste of most stuff because I drink so many bulks. What I always tell my friends when they ask about something new to try is that $30 is nothin in comparison to most of the products out today, and at least with all in one, you will see results.

    If your looking for a pure BCAA product then I would go with xtend because it has more bcaa without the carbs.

    1 serving of all in one has 170 calories
    2903 mg leucine
    1452 mg isoleucine
    1452 mg valine

    1 serving xtend has 40 calories all from aminos
    3500 mg leucine
    1750 mg isoleucine
    1750 mg valine

    unless you get the carb free of all in one
    So the choice will depend on what your looking for.

    Sweet, thanks. That pretty much sums it up!
    ... and confirms my order of Xtend this time around. Fits my goals of more or less straight BCAAs to add to the stack while cutting. Trying to keep it clean, and I'm trying out some new supplements so I want to add in the least amount of stuff as possible at a time to play chemist and tweak things individually if needed.

    Next time around I think I will try out the All In One to feed an all-out bulk in the late fall. Looks like a solid product too.

    I will be talking Xtend preworkout and Xtend/Storm post workout, then a shake ~30 min after.
    On non-workout days probably take Xtend once per day -- better to take in the AM or PM before bed? Or does it matter much?

    Next time around I think I will try out the All In One to feed an all-out bulk in the late fall. Looks like a solid product too.

    I will be talking Xtend preworkout and Xtend/Storm post workout, then a shake ~30 min after.
    On non-workout days probably take Xtend once per day -- better to take in the AM or PM before bed? Or does it matter much?
    to me mrm bcaa+g and then xtend. xtend if you want a drink.

    I would sip the servings xtend pre/during/post workout, take the storm 30 min pre workout, and then again post workout. You can also take xtend any other time of the day, I recommend breakfast and before bed. On off days take 1-2 servings of xtend, timing dont matter much.

    I'm using the watermelon Xtend right now. I like the addition of glutamine. I just wish I could afford to keep taking it after this tub.

    Cool, thanks. I'll watch for it. Yeah, I can pretty much down anything if it's in a gulp or two. For something I might sip throughout a workout, I'll wuss out and go for something smoother... I can handle a nasty shudder when the stuff's going down, and the occasional "supplement burp" while lifting, but minimizing the nastiness is a new goal of mine

    I've been using BCAA AKG for the last couple of weeks and like it so far- softgells are easier for me.

    haha, sounds like me ... but what i do is really sad ... i have to use a notecard as a funnel to get the xtend into my water bottle the night before and then i usually discover there is some xtend left on the notecard afterwards ... since it's so good and so expensive, i can't just throw it away ... so i have to lick it off.

    it is so good. i like this stuff more than diet coke, and if you knew me, you'd know that is HUGE!

    here's to xtend and wishing it came in IV form ... (except then we couldn't taste it, so, hmm ... i guess drinking it really is best) ...

    Universal atomic-7, bcaa, and the uni-livers. the uni-livers are horsepills but 2 of those have 6 g's of protein in them. That throughout the day adds up big time.

    BCAA's That Your Body Can Actually Assimilate

    Okay, this is going to seem like coming out of left field but I have found better results focusing on BCAA's that have high assimilation rates rather than just high amounts. I have found that plant based BCAA's are more effective and reduce my recovery time. These are my favorites:

    1) Bee Pollen
    2) Spirulina
    3) Marine Phytoplankton
    4) Sunwarrior Protein Blend
    5) Vega Sport Performance Protein

    Load these into a smoothie with frozen banana's and spinach and you should be good to go my friend!

    Originally Posted by RichardRussell View Post

    I am leaning toward Xtend -- not too badly priced for the large size: 90 "servings" for $50. I'd take one serving pre and one serving post workout, so this would last me 45 days... not too bad.

    On the Nitro vs. Nitro G (or any pill vs. powder for that matter), what is recommended? I'd like to get only one product this go around, but I can see the convenience of caps or tabs for taking BCAAs any time other than postworkout (when I'd want to take a powder).

    Thanks, and tho I know it's sort-of been answered in other threads, hopefully this consolidates the thinking a bit and helps others out too...

    I have tried xtend. it's good and my favourite flavor was green apple. i like to make it chilled and icy and it's very refreshing. i tried also aminolast it's good but gets too foamy. I am ordering muscle pharm animo1, any feedback on this one?

    1452 mg isoleucine
    1452 mg valine

    1 serving xtend has 40 calories all from aminos
    3500 mg leucine
    1750 mg isoleucine
    1750 mg valine

    unless you get the carb free of all in one
    So the choice will depend on what your looking for.


    Well, never thought about 100% Beef Aminos?
    If you checked its supplement fact, you'll find that it has more amount of BCAA in it.
