    Digestive enzymes, FOS, sodium bicarbonate, MultiVitamin - all help protein digestion.

    I don't think amino acids are necessary anymore - not with Whey protein available... which often has all the BCAA's in it. Rather than buying amino acids - get a quality whey protein.

    I agree, it seems that BCAA's were the rage back before whey protein (and other protein powders ) became so widely used.

    i actually dropeed whey from my diet and went back to aminos after workout. liquid amino 22222. I take 50g worth right after WO. Its faster absorbed than whey and has the minimum you need in the EAA profile (which is really what gives the anabolic effect post workout). for other times I usually stick with chicken, but before bed i eat two protein bars full of casein for slow absorption. Anyway, I personally like this the best as I got tired of the nasty protein powders, and I don;t fart much anymore. of course Im just maintaining right now, if I was bulking i might add a shake in.

    I agree with Warrior, now if you are one of those that more than enough money to burn, buy 'em. But if you're a poor bastard like myself, stick to the whey....LOL
