View Full Version : stocking up on protein

10-06-2007, 05:21 PM
so i'm looking to stock up on protein this month, some whey, casein, and maybe isolate. i have a bit of store credit to use, and there isn't much i really need. i have a creatine, multi, and protein at home. i'm planning to get animal flex (31 day sale) and some fish oil.

apart from that i want to stock up and get good protein to keep my house supplied. right now me, my older bro, and dad all use protein and the stuff is getting expensive, so i might as well put my store credit to use.

for now the only proteins i am looking to get are BSN Syntha-6, Next RX-98, Primaforce Substance.
i'm basically looking for proteins with good cost per serving (preferably in less than a 5lb tub). any suggestions on other brands or even diff supplements?

also, i noticed this one is in the 31 day sale for $25:
http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/est/anaproblend.html
just wondering if its safe to take or not? i know test-boosters are not a help at my age, but was just curious if it actually does something or would it not be worth risking?

thanks

That's a PH, DO NOT take it.



Look into Ultra Peptide, Pro V60 and Protein Component for blends.

yeah thanks, was just checking to make sure, i know about avoiding them, this one was a little sketchy and my bro wanted to try it too. thanks for the heads up and for those blends, i'll take a look at 'em

if you're worried about money you can prob get a more affordable blend than syntha-6, although that stuff tastes amazing. Not sure on the exact price comparison, but look into ultra peptide, high quality (could be more expensive per serving though), substance will be good cause its been discontinued so you can prob find it cheap. ON 100% casein isn't too expensive. VPX ZeroImpact is also good, as well as Labrada ProV60

thnx, i'll take a look at some of those brands. i actually found that syntha-6 is a decent price compared to other blends, most had the same price tag but less servings

i have a question about primaforce substance WPI if anyone can answer
i was just reading through its description and it says


Loaded with BCAAs & Glutamine to help build powerful, lean muscle

does anyone know the values or how much of BCAAs and glutamine is in each serving?

Actually I am logging the Ana-Pro right now and I was concerned about the whole PH thing in the protein but Steve told me the only part in the protein itself is the AI part of the prop so technically its not PH

Yes trust the rep, since he is not biased. Protein supplements should not have that crap in it.

That's not realy a bias statement. Him saying "ANAPRO is better than any other protien powder, bro", is bias.

Run a search on google with this 30 lbs Milk & Egg protein universal , on the third page, the last link, you can get this for 120 bucks. Decent quality of 30 pounds calcium casein and egg white protein from a company that you can trust.

so i was just looking at ErgoPharm GF Pro
it says a bunch of things about growth factors, but says nothing about them on the profile. so is this still just a safe WPI for my age? if it is, whats a good flavor?

Wasn't it you who posted up that pic of all the I-pro? How much protein are you hoarding? Whey prices aren't going up due to gas and milk...it's because PU is getting greedy :)

J/K...wish i could dish that kinda cash out for bulk supplies like that

LMAO my protein goes fast because my clients get free goodies during the 6 months I train them (always give them the good tasting stuff). After 6 months, I no longer charge them any fees, but also no more free goodies ;)

The Isobolic is mainly for ME... my long term plan is to use it as a flavoring system:

1-2 scoops NOW ISOLATE (from 10lb bags)
1 scoop ISOBOLIC (from 5lb tubs)

(this works out to actually be cheaper than chicken)

(this works out to actually be cheaper than chicken) but can you barbeque WPI?....didn't think so. That's quite the system you've got figured out tho. I'll have to devise something similar but on a lesser scale

Thanks for the Idea

You can use it whenever you want. It's Milk and Egg Protein. Tastes good IMO.

errr... I gotta disagree here. Though I'm a Universal/Animal junkie, milk and egg protein has an awkward taste to it. I normally add half a scoop of ONS extreme milk chocolate into it to balance out the taste.

Taste is very subjective, that's why I added the "IMO":)

Sorry I ordered about a month ago and I guess they raised the price, it cost me 120 and 22.95 bucks for shipping so it came out to 143 bucks total.

another question...
since i have a little extra to spend, i was just wondering if either of these are safe for my age/size
Chromium Picolinate
CLA.

in addition to the protein i will be ordering some fish oil and NOW omega 3-6-9

I'm looking around and have so far seen it for ~150 shipped for 30lb. (edit: nevermind is out of stock :( )

BUT....isn't whey protein isolate better than this egg/milk protein?? I have been using ON which has a nice amino acid blend in it. This egg/milk brand does not seem to have any extras.

No, egg/milk protein is superior to whey.


I have been using ON which has a nice amino acid blend in it. This egg/milk brand does not seem to have any extras.

what kind of extras are you looking for? The egg/casein has a better amino acid blend, since it's two different proteins and different digestion rates.

My simplistic breakdown
whey - quick absorption for post workout
whey isolate - like whey but without the lactose
casein - slower absorption for hunger or bedtime

Whey Protein Isolates - Tons to choose from. You could go with the always-popular Optimum Nutrition Whey, or do a search and find 50+ other brands who produce similar/better products cheaper. Very easy to find a good WPI product (especially using the search function).

Protein Blend - A few good ones I'll recommend:

DYA Propeptide
Ultra Peptide (2.0 when it's available)
Micellar Matrix

Pure casein products - Only one in the US I know of is ON's Casein, aparently tastes like crap. Having said that, most pure Micellar Casein products taste like ass.
