    So, i while ago i went to MyProtein website and called an assistant online to chat with and asked where do they get theyre BCAAs from. He answered "from duck feathers".

    i had read about it before online.

    isnt this crazy shit? i mean...BCAAS are nothing else than protein...and they use friggin duck feathers? I imagine what kind of chemicals they use to extract the BCAAs from the feathers. This must be why BCAAs smell so bad...its disgusting.

    And i wonder if we can absorb this aminos takens from feathers...i mean, whats the bioavailability of nasty duck feathers aminos?? hell!! im never buying BCAAs no more

    I find this to be the case with the entire supplement industry. Either it works, but minuscule to what advertised, or doesn't work at all. Whey and Vitamin C are really the ones I find that makes a significant difference, and even then its not alot. Whey practically is food for me

    Yeah I don't really count protein as a supplement. It's more of a convenience food.
    The only things I think that are worth your money are
    Caffeine
    Whey
    Creatine
    Multi vitamin
    Vitamin D
    Fish oil

    It actually wouldn't necessarily need chemicals to be extracted (though they may i'm not familiar with their methods). I get a lot of my collagen protein from boiling bones/making broths/soups. Just a lot of slow hot water, sodium and voila.

    Lots of people turn away from good aspects of the animal rather than consume it such as liver, joint articulation parts like the cartilage and tendons (chewy and don't taste well typically), bone marrow, hearts, giblets, etc.

    Most supps are BS, and if you aren't doing fasted training or prolonged endurance training/event, perhaps extreme cuts where actual protein interfere's with your calorie reduction, they are a waste of $$$$.

    Everyone worrying about protein intake these days is absolutely ridiculous.

    The amount of beef you have to eat to get 5 g of creatine monohydrate is astronomical.
