    Question Need some input on supplements

    Hey all, I saw that there are forums for ‘best products’ and all that, but I need input on 2 specific BCAA products. And yes, I know BCAA supplements aren’t essential, but I like them during my workouts and have always liked them.

    I’m looking at Xtend BCAA mix currently, as there’s a big sale on it right now. I have been using EVL BCAA Lean Energy for years and have enjoyed it, but I always hear about how great Xtend is.

    Not having the scientific knowledge, I was hoping for some input on which of the 2 would be better to drink throughout a workout, as I can get them at a similar price. From what I can see, Xtend has a better BCAA mix, but EVL has caffeine and beta-alanine (which my preworkout does as well)

    Anyone have opinions on which of the 2 I should go for?

    Which one do you like the most? That's probably all that matters.

    Personally if I am taking a pwo with stimulants I won't also add more stimulants during my workouts.

    Well, there is zero scientific value to BCAAs, and possible downside to use. Plus, if you're meeting your macro daily, you're getting plenty of amino acids. More != beneficial. If you're not meeting your macro, fix that issue with protein which has a full-spectrum of amino acids. As always, nutrient timing isn't wholly relevant to the vast majority of people.

    Beta Alanine doesn't really have value for the general gymgoer. Unless you're an endurance athlete or training multiple bouts per day or training >2-2.5 hours regularly, there isn't much upside, if any real world benefit.

    I wouldn't buy either.

    I second that. However, if you want to buy one, get sample packet and buy the one that tastes better, the ingredients are very similiar.
