it does help thx a lot mate. thx, will switch a while do liquid aminos see how that goes :)
Liquid aminos are not worth the money. They will all end up the same. When people talk about digestion rates, if you are to take your aminos in any form, we are talking about minutes of difference between the digestion points.... I would go and find some cheap aminos...See if that helps.Originally Posted by pretzeL
for the other person....liquid creatine is fine, but dont waste the money, just stick with the powder, preliquid is more expensive ( i work at GNC i know lol )
Liquid Creatine is not fine. It is very unstable and has an asobrtion rate that is much lower than powder and caplet form (about 37%). Caplet form is the best and most expensive way to supplement creatine. however, pure Creatine Monohydrate (powder) is the best option. 1000 grams should run you 20 bucks online.

Recently had a creatine freebie that lasted a month. I thought it did nothing, or that it wasn't actually creatine (it was a creatine "delivery"system mix). Didn't notice any strength or stamina gains, but when I finished the container I noticed a drop off over the next week and a half in 'recovery'.
Not what I was expecting from the reading I had done.
Mango, quit insulting CWU, this is HIS thread, not yours. He has 6 years experience and you have what? not even a year, maybe 2 years, that doesnt even matter. You work at GNC, stop trying to take CWUs thread over.
Ive deleted your post because its a direct insult to CWU, we know you work at GNC and "know it all" but please stop, k thanks
Mango Response...Minus the bad... "muscle milk is a good protein, also a good fat burner according to what customers have told me...Originally Posted by miniduck
the syntha-6 ive heard isnt any better than musclemilk, gnc brand protein, nitro-tech or whatever"
I would agree with the idea that muscle milk is a good protein...as is syntha-6...however, I think some people might be a little confused about protein shakes...so lets break 'em down...
When someone asks..."Is ***** a good protein?"...you have to say.."For WHat?"
All protein is good. It matters what your goals are however... While most bb'ers are looking for a good supplement to your protein intake for post workouts...take the cheapest stuff you can find. ON 100% whey. Its fast, easy to take, cheap and high quality. When you start getting into the MM and Syntha-6...you are starting to get into that MRP realm. I wouldn't recommend either as a post workout shake, unless you can't have a post-workout meal. You need to think...okay what do i need after my workout?...prolly 30-50 grams of whey...nothing more or less....Maybe some simple carbs.
then 40-60 mins later, you eat your meal.
When you can't eat though, then look at these other shakes. MM is more of a morning shake cause I am a fat ass and need to cut out a meal....not a post workout...and Syntha-6....save you money.... KEEP IT SIMPLE!...I say when it comes to protein...you should take three things into consideration..
What you need? Straight Protein? MRP's?
How much you need? Am I gonna be pounding 3 shakes a day?
What I can afford? BSN...MT...or Bob's Protein?
Then lastly...taste...whatever you get make sure you can drink it...if you aren't gonna drink it..your wasting your time...lord knows i have thrown more strawberry flavors away....
Thanks for the response. I use the syntha-6 before bed to help me through the night. It tastes like crap (chocolate), but I cut the scoop in half and add a little more each time to get used to it.Originally Posted by CWUTrainer
For my whey protein, I get it for about $25 at Costco. Sportpharma, low carb whey protein shake. Chocolate flavor (decent taste once you get used to it), and it's 6 lbs. Best one I've found yet. For my pw carbs, I have whole grain bread.
I only got the syntha-6 because it's the only casein protein I could find in gnc/vitamin world (nothing else around here). I need to find a better one. Is there cheaper/better tasting stuff I could find on the internet?
Try Pro-Complex PM....or any "Nighttime Protein" Links Below...Originally Posted by miniduck
Pretty Good prices...might get on that second one.
CWU I have a question about the value of micellar casein.
As far as the night time blends that incorporate caseins and caseinates is there any real difference in the quality of the these proteins to suggest that you should buy 'blend x' because it has micellar casein instead of sodium caseinate? Is there really a difference between them? What's the low down on choosing a night time blend, or is a straight up casein better?
I know some are cheaper to produce, and that there is some concerns about the health effects of some (from memory it was calcium caseinate, not 100% on that).
I always say, if you can afford it...start off cheap for a while and see what upgradeing does. I did this with Nitrix. I started off with straight L-Arginine, then went to an A-AKG...then Nitrix, and with each upgrade, I could feel the diffrence. However, with something like protein, what matters most is what your getting. Go to a store and look at the facts on the label. Then decide. Here is the deal with protein though. If you were to take the most expensive protein on the market, and compare it to "Brand X" as you put it, you will probably notice nothing in actual gains. However, along the way you may notice things like inigestion, gas, and otehr irratations that can come from low quality proteins. I always say try something...and see what you think. We all react difffrently. I highly doubt though your micellar casein will provide results any more beneficial in terms of gains than sodium casienante.Originally Posted by tim290280
