iBCAA

Just noticed these are now available at myprotein! £46.99 per KG - anyone tried these? are they worth the extra ££££ ?
 
Wiill be a while before I give these a whirl - I've got bags of BCAAs to get through first!

    I've got no idea what "Ajinomoto" is or why they've put prefixed an "i" to it but they just look like any other BCAA powder to me. 1kg = £46.99 where you can get just over a kilo of Xtend for less than £40. When it comes to BCAAs it's Xtend everytime for me (although I may try out the BBW version at some point).

    iPod, iPad, iMac... generally anything with an 'i' in front is more expensive.

    Google says Ajinomoto... is a well known amino acid producing company in Japan.

    Aye, I had a quick Google out of curiousity. I hear they're a good company but nothing earth shattering.

    its pharama grade bcaa as far as i am aware - the best there is - apparently.

    stats : 5FT 10 tall 104KG
    bENCH = 110 KG 5x5
    sQUAT = 150 KG 5 X 5
    dEADLIFT = 180KG 3 x4
    sHOULDER PRESS = 100KG X 5

    Ibcaa isn't comparable to other BCAA, it is an ultra premium BCAA. Ajin aminos are used in hospitals all over the world as quality is the highest. Read more here:

    http://www.ajiaminoscienc...ed_products/ibcaa.aspx

    It's also soluble in water unlike other BCAA. Watch a video below of instant BCAA (ibcaa):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDSfc6y6ecI

    Truely the flagship BCAA for those who want the best. We of course sell other forms of BCAA for different budgets.

    True. But from a muscle training perspective is what it's intended for better?

    I use these and totally rate them!!
    The "I" is for instantised. See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zoq2T8DwC4E
    It's ingredients and purity are second to none. I remember reading Ajinomoto have a 60% share of the world's medical care aminos. Might try and find it. Taste is practically nil too.
    Yes Predator do them, also for £46.99p a kg. But they do them for £42.99p a kg if buying 3 x 1kgs which is what I do. http://www.predatornutrition.com/pd-ibcaa-1000-grams.cfm Plus you get a free shaker. I use 10g about 5 times a day with 10g pre and isolate post workout and then 10g about an hour after. In between meals is a great time too if training hard. If you diet is good and you add 50g a day (I'm 220lbs so maybe take less if you're lighter) and you'll notice the difference!
    Just hope Ajinomoto isn't near Fukashima! They do produce them in Rayleigh USA too though.

    So these don't taste like gash like regular BCAA's?
     
    Also, if you shake your shaker hard enough, they don't float on top that that video... who honestly stirs bcaa's with a fork?
     
    I'd be interested in this if the taste is better than standard aminos, and perhaps if they did EAA's...

    Great stuff! now all I have to do is get through 4kg of Xtend, 2 kg of Leucine, 1kg of BCAAs and 1kg of EAAs before trying ibccas lol

    No they taste of practically nothing (especially when you're having them regularly!)
    About 20secs after putting a scoop in the water it'll sink. But a simple stir dissolves the powder straight away. It will slowly settle on the bottom again if you leave it long enough but I just neck it straight away. There's no clumps at all ever and they mix fine in a protein shake, you wouldn't even notice them!
     
    And yes, I do mix bcaas with a fork sometimes! Lol!   But if I'm on the go I got loads of little screw cap bottles http://www.ocado.com/webshop/product/Essential-Fruit-Shot-Strawberry/42880011 which I just put 10g in and then just squirt in some water from my bottle, lid back on and shake! Sorted!

    In regards to muscle gains and the effects we want from bcaa i doubt they make much of a difference altho i am very tempted to try them.
     
    the comparison to xtend isnt really fair as 10g of xtend doesnt give u 10g bcaa

    Agreed ^^^ 
     
    You're paying for a premium product (standardised purity, excellent solubility, nil taste) so a higher price is justifiable. 
     
    Arguably, standard BCAAs will do the same job, but it's a bit like the whey isolate vs. concentrate vs. peptoPro etc.  argument.

    You should try them hilly! As I mentioned I take about 50g of them throughout the day with 10g pre and 10g post workout. They (and probably primarily the leucine) are helping prevent normal muscle breakdown assciated with hard training and facilitate recovery. One third of our skeletal musculature is bcaas so it's not hard to see the benefits. All I can say is get a kg and take about 50g a day (with a good diet of course). They will however mean £50 a month outlay at these amounts. I've used (and sold) the standard bcaas before and never noticed similar benefits.
    I'd love to hear your review if you do try them.

    Hi Rick, I've tried Peptopro and again it is really good for around workouts. I've never seen a bad review. Ok some re the taste but it wasn't any biggy really. The £40 a kg though is perhaps too pricey though considering I can get cfm isolate for £8.44p a kg.

    Hmmm are u dieting pal?
     
    I really cant see the need for 50g bcaa during the day when im consuming 370-400g protein from pretty good quality sources.
     
    I actually tried last year supplememting with liquid beef aminos at 4 tablespoons between meals so 3-4 x a day as the idea would be similar to the way u are using the bcaa and noticed no benefit.
     
    when dieting yes great idea but i cant see why you would do this during the off season.
     
    would love ure thoughts
     
    i am however a big believe in bcaa and eaa around workouts
