    Isn't it cheaper to get those amino acids form meat and milk ? Of course that way the supplements industry doesn't make profit from us like selling noxplode to some stupid teens.

    It was actually posted the other day by someone else.

    This thread's main value is its Madmick content. :D

    Yeah, Xtrainer, been gone a while. I've been posting lately mostly in OT. I'll probably start posting more in the Grappling and Standup forums, now, as I'm training full speed again...not sure about posting in here. Probably if I end up reading some new material on nutrition, but I haven't read any new books since I stopped posting. And I feel like I've got what I need to figure out figured out- which brings me to...
    I like you already, Jaedong. Yeah, whey protein supplements (among myriad other complete proteins) are already rich in BCAA's, so I don't really recommend separate BCAA supplements. Too pricey.

    This is what I take:
    1) Multivitamin
    2) Protein Powder
    3) Fish Oil
    4) Creatine Monohydrate
    5) Greens Superfood

    The last is the most pricey; if you eat like 2-3 Spinach & Chicken salads a day (or just something dark, green, and leafy in a massive volume), then you really don't need it. Since I operated on 6-7 meals a day, I often drank 2 of those meals as food shakes (I put Spinach in all my shakes). But when I did that, or had other meals not so rich in greens, I would take the superfood. The one concrete thing I was after was the net anti-acid load to my bloodstream. I wanted that at every meal. Well, and I also liked the whopping amount of added micronutrients from a food source (even if it isn't a whole food source).

    I found I spent more than enough money just procuring those things.
