I saw this article by Michael Matthews, author of Bigger Leaner Stronger, basically says that BCAA does not live to the hype except if you're using it during fasted cardio/training. He also said:
"All we currently have is an unpublished study paid for by Scivation–the creator of the popular Xtend BCAA supplement–and headed up by Jim Stoppani, that…cough..demonstrated?…some remarkable results" https://www.muscleforlife.com/bcaa-supplement/
“The skeptic in me is tempted to chalk up some of the results to not just funding source (Scivation), but also the longstanding friendship between Jim Stoppani and the Scivation staff. The fact is, there’s no way to quantify the degree of commercial bias inherent in this trial – or any other for that matter.” https://www.muscleforlife.com/bcaa-supplement/
- What are your thoughts on his claims?
- What are your thoughts on the 10:1:1 type of BCAA's and how is it different from the 2:1:1?
