  • bcaas from true protein?

    I have finally decided to give up the vitamin shoppe and buy online due to cheaper prices!

    Im wondering about the bcaas by true protien, is there a certain brand that is better and more cost effective?

      Instantized is better as it mixes better. The regular is more cost effective but does not mix as well. If you don't think you can stand a bit of grit go with the instatized. If you can deal with the grit and are on a budget go with the regular.

          Same as Heckman for me...just ordered (another) 10lbs of it. I add it with crystal lite for flavoring, so no issue there.

              how much does everyone take? Do you mix up a gallon jug and drink it through the day or just throw a scoop or two in your pre or post or intra workout drinks??

                I noticed better recovery (less DOMS) with ~20g 4:1:1 BCAA sipped during workout. I would mix with about 2 cups water. From my understanding higher leucine ratio would be better but 4:1:1 is all I have experience with.

                        I was talking about True Proteins BCAAs. Instatized is special and non-intatized would be what I am calling regular.

                          I am a huge fan of the BCAA Plus in grape. Mixes well and has good "stuff" in it.

                            I am sipping some BCAA Plus right now! Limeade flavor. I toss it in a shaker with some ice and find it quite refreshing. On my next order I am going to get some of the regular BCAAs and give them a go 'round too.

                              Don't do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not sure why, but they no longer sell the INSTANTIZED version of their BCAA's (at least they don't show up when I pull up trueprotein). I wasn't paying attention this last month when I ordered so I didn't realize I was buying regular BCAAs. They taste like a dirty, frothy vagina, take forever to mix up, and there are always little BCAA rocks in the bottom I have to swallow. I'm not saying that specifically TP BCAAs are bad or anything. I just wouldn't buy non-instantized BCAAs from anyone in general.

                              Edit: I should add that I had been buying the instantized BCAAs for several months from TP. They tasted fine and were very easy to mix in.
