BCAA Questions...


Recommended Posts

I ordered a bunch of BCAA powder thinking I'd try using it when I decide to really focus on cutting.

 

I've read it's good to sip this stuff mixed with creatine during lifting, especially when you are restricting caloric intake. I'm not restricting my caloric intake right now, but I'm wondering if it would be beneficial to supplement with this, even though I'm already getting lots of protein from various sources and eating lots of calories???

 

BTW - I was comparing the BCAA content of some of the proteins I use... I thought I'd share my findings:

 

30g Manitoba Hemp Protein:

 

L-Leucine: 828mg

L-Isoleucine: 492mg

L-Valine: 609mg

 

36g Supro Soy Isolate:

 

L-Leucine: 2550mg

L-Isoleucine: 1520mg

L-Valine: 1560mg

 

30g Nutribiotic Rice Protein:

 

L-Leucine: 1996mg

L-Isoleucine: 1056mg

L-Valine: 1420mg

 

5g ON BCAA powder:

 

L-Leucine: 2500mg

L-Isoleucine: 1250mg

L-Valine: 1250mg

 

I don't see an amino acid breakdown on my stash of chocolate Vega, and I haven't figured out the amount per serving in my Gemma Pea Protein... Maybe someone else has this info???
