    Products I can mix with my water

    Looking for some stuff that I can mix with my water and drink all day. Sadly, I am sick of the one flavor of hydra charge. What else is out there?

    Well since you're asking about actually supps and not just flavoring agents.

    I honestly cannot think of anyone that beats MANsports Iso-Amino in terms of flavored BCAA's:

    Sour patch kids (called sour batch)
    Skittles (called fruit smash)
    Nerds (called dorks)
    Starburst (called sun blaze)
    Swedish fish (sweet delish)
    War Heads!!!! (called sour nukes)
    And some other great, non candy flavors [Grape bubble gum, green apple, pineapple, tiger's blood, strawberry kiwi, etc.)

    I do this a lot. Sun tea at least 2 glasses a day during the summer. Mio or the generics are good too.

    Just get Coke zero? , not srs, kinda srs.


    BCAA's are great to sip on throughout the day, I often find myself mixing a scoop or two at some point during the work day. Take a look at N'Gage amino, or maybe even our N'Ergized version.

    Aside from BCAA's, I was hooked on ON amino amino energy years back when it came out!

    iso amino (any flavor), ergo bcaa (big fan of the raspberry passionfruit), MP BCAA 3:1:2 (big fan of the watermelon, lighter and more natural tasting compared to other supps).

    I'd go with Bolero. Large variety of flavors and a great taste!
    But I'm not sure if it's available in the US.

    Interesting - I hadn't realized that BCAAs alone would spike insulin. Any links or anything?

    Sure. I should also clarify that insulin resistance appears to be a larger issue. Too great an intake of BCAA seems to provoke insulin resistance which, of course, could negatively impact hypertrophy.

    Here are a couple of studies to check out for a start on the subject:

    Newgard, C.B., An, J., Bain, J.R., Muehlbauer, M.J., Stevens, R.D., Lien, L.F., Haqq, A.M., Shah, S.H., Arlotto, M., Slentz, C.A., Rochon, J., Gallup, D., Ilkayeva, O., Wenner, B.R., Yancy, W.S., Jr., Eisenson, H., Musante, G., Surwit, R.S., Millington, D.S., Butler, M.D., and Svetkey, L.P. (2009). A branched-chain amino acid-related metabolic signature that differentiates obese and lean humans and contributes to insulin resistance. Cell Metab 9, 311-326.
    Full text: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3640280/

    Granted, it appears that this is more negative for obese folks, but still. Further research might be interesting.

    This image shows a bit how insulin sensitivity is affected by BCAAs. Obviously, the obese folks saw a larger effect, but the lean folks also saw insulin reaction to BCAAs and metabolites.



    Doi, M., Yamaoka, I., Nakayama, M., Mochizuki, S., Sugahara, K., and Yoshizawa, F. (2005). Isoleucine, a blood glucose-lowering amino acid, increases glucose uptake in rat skeletal muscle in the absence of increases in AMP-activated protein kinase activity. J Nutr 135, 2103-2108.
    Full text: http://jn.nutrition.org/content/135/9/2103.long

    Okay, so to start, rat study, and rats that were deprived of food.

    An interesting statement from the study:
    In such cells, the signaling pathway analysis using a phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitor (LY294002), a protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitor (GF109203X), and an mTOR inhibitor (rapamycin) suggests that PI3K and PKC, but not mTOR, are involved in the enhancement of glucose uptake by isoleucine. These data suggest that isoleucine assumes the role of a signal for glucose metabolism, thereby stimulating insulin.

    Nothing concrete, but a good indication.

    Further, if you continue to read it appears that inactivation of AMPK lowers the capacity that AMPK has to augment the insulin signaling pathway which then results in weaker overall insulin response that would/could reduce the capacity to better stimulate hypertrophy and add mass in an effective manner.

    Hope that helps.

    Interesting. I admittedly don't have a huge scientific base of knowledge to go on but I'll dig into that later. Thanks!

    Grape and Blue Rasp compete bro, I could literally no joke.. Drink it endlessly. Ice Cold.. especially grape.. non stop. Blue Rasp is tartish.. not super sweet so it has a nice kick and twist to it. So if you want something with a little sour kick, go for blue rasp.

    I'm with Mike on this, I love the Blue Razz compete.

    I'm guilty of this as well (needing flavor in my water each day) because I have a desk job, and I'm constantly eating/drinking it's nice to pick up a tub or two of BCAA's/EAA's each month (in different flavors) to take a scoop or two to work each day and flavor my water.

    I use Compete by iForce, I use Xtend by Scivation from time to time, AminoLast by Gaspari (Watermelon) and other flavors to keep it switched up and interesting. I honestly couldn't imagine my life without flavored Amino's

    Is it the fact that you're drinking them all day or is it drinking them in excess all day? Say I put a scoop in 35 oz of water and just drank that all day? Instead of having numerous scoops throughout the day

    As I read? Similar effect either way. By sipping all day though you're perpetually spiking MPS and insulin which is not good.

    Plus potential of other issues with higher dosages. Interesting reads from this post in another thread:
