    BCAA or EAA !?

    Starting my research a bit with BCAA vs EAA. With so much conflicting information and the "you-tube experts" I wanted to get some actual product feedback from the community! If you could, please support this by adding your choice of product and why it works. Thanks!

    I highly recommend BCAAs intra-workout as they absorb almost instantly, protein from whole foods take hours upon hours to digest. As stated above, BCAAs and EAAs are both found in protein and most feel if you're consuming enough protein your getting enough of both aminos

    I personally feel BCAAs are critical and much needed during training, but the only way to determine if they're necessary for you is by testing them out

    DO NOT waste your money on free-form amino acids. There is zero reason to use free-form aminos if you're meeting your macro. If you're not meeting your macro, you need to fix that issue protein.

    There is ZERO evidence of value to orally consumed bcaas or eaas in healthy individuals or for the vast majority of people training. Even then, more != beneficial.

    Disregard the marketing BS above me. That disregards digestion and how it works.

    If you want to save money but still want to use BCAAs, you can find bulk supplement companies that produce big bags of things like BCAAs, creatine, agmatine, citrulline, etc.

    I've been brewing my own intra-workout for over a year now using bulk bags. Saves me a LOT of money getting the "good" or worthwhile supplements separately and mixing them myself, rather than dumping $40 at a time on some small 30 serving pre/intra workout that also has a bunch of chit mixed in with it.

    This is a good route if you have a large chunk of money to spend upfront. And don’t care about flavoring though I guess you could add it to things.

    I usually find bcaa to be more about recovery during the workout or after. If I’m wrong someone correct me.

    In one case it doesn't matter. In another it doesn't matter. Digestion is a process that happens over time, up to 48 hours. You don't need instant magic, nor is there any value in it regardless of how much your overlords at BPI want you to push it. Sell that product to ignorant noobs baby!

    There is zero reason to do this as there is zero value to using free-form aminos at any time. Nor is the use of any of those other ingredients "intra" of any value. Pre for two of them, sure, but intra...naw.

    BCAAs arrest muscle wasting in people who are confined to bed. Athletes use branched-chain amino acids to improve exercise performance and reduce protein and muscle breakdown during intense exercise. These amino acids are absorbed and rapidly broken down during training, which makes their presence mandatory during workout sessions for optimal absorption and replacement.

    .When you exercise intensely, your serotonin levels go up, which induces a feeling of fatigue. BCAAs interfere with the production of serotonin, thereby delaying the feeling of fatigue.
    .Each training session injures your muscle fibers. BCAAs supplementation before and after exercise helps reduce muscle breakdown, reduces muscle soreness and repairs damaged muscles.
    .Weight trainers have found an increase in the rate of new muscle synthesis with BCAA supplementation, as it triggers mTORC1, a signaling pathway, essential for muscle building.
    .BCAAs have a significant role in increasing the rate of fat burn and also helps support fat loss. Surveys go on to show that people with a higher BCAA intake in their diets will have less of body fat and more muscle.
    .No denying the fact, that BCAAs are a critical supplement for bodybuilders who are cutting before an event or show. Before a bodybuilding show, the bodybuilder wants to shed the body fat percentage but at the same time retain his muscle mass. BCAAs with its anti-catabolic effect becomes a must-have supplement for all such people.

    A great addition to the supplementation schedule during periods of intermittent fasting or when you are on a calorie-deficit diet, BCAAs help in delaying the feeling of tiredness in the athlete or bodybuilder.
    However, like most supplements you need to use it the right away to get the maximum advantage of a BCAA supplement.

    As to your, as always, brilliant copy paste job, none of that supports using free-form amino acids. You can claim that "X" does "Y", but correlation != causation, nor does any of that support that using free-form aminos does anything for healthy individuals already meeting their macro. Nor does it change that anyone training for athletic goals is not fasting >24 hours. Digestion is a process, and just adding a little extra pixie dust doesn't = better.

    So much of that is made up BS with zero support. But keep on keeping on lil tiger. Keep selling.

    Let's keep it civil, but then you said, "Let's back up your statements and then I'll listen."

    You already had the information/link to what really is the most current (and he keeps it so) information on the research around amino acids, but you'll take the free stuff because why not?

    You said you wanted to be corrected if you were wrong and you were. People don't need to prove you wrong. You need to prove you're right. Proving a negative isn't how discussion works.

    You make a claim, and someone says, "Naw son, that ain't right."
    You are then required to show that you are correct.
    Once you have provided your information, then the other party refutes it, agrees with it or poses other theories.

    You had no leg to stand on other than, "I usually find bcaa to be more about recovery during the workout or after." Which has no basis in science. Don't be like the Fug. At least his ignorance we know is fake. He's just trying to hawk product.

    Do note that he sent me some glutamine a few years ago to prove that supplemental glutamine was like magic muscle fertilizer. Lo and behold, nothing other than flavored water.

    Hey Raigs,
    The amino acids Leucin, Isoleucin and Valin make up BCAA. If you want to increase muscle protein synthesis 5g of leucine are better than 5g of BCAA. (Isoleucine and valin are much weaker to activate mTOR.)

    When it comes for recovery and ”anabolic window” you can read about it on the links in the post above. but to make a summary; a meal before or after with sufficient protein will be enough for recovery. (If you have a overall good diet)

    My problem with BCAA is not the amino acids itself but how its advertised by some companies. Its not a miracle product. You get a better micro profile from whey as a pre/post workout shake than intra bcaa. So instead of $30 (BCAA) for 0,6 lbs you can get 2,2 lbs (Whey) for $10-15 with a better amino profile.

    The majority of studies are opinion based, and they're very easy to manipulate in your favor

    Here's another from BB.com

    I notice that when I use BCAA muscle soreness the following day is less plus I feel much less tired toward the end of the workout.

    Keep in mind that I usually train high volume.
