I don't use this particular flavor of BCAA's (I use the Sour Candy flavor), but I do use this brand, and I absolutely love it. I went to my local Vitamin Shoppe and was actually looking into purchasing XTEND BCAA's, and asked the sales associate for flavor recommendations, when she told me she prefers BPI BCAA's. She told me the ingredients are better, and that the flavors taste better than XTEND. Since they were the same price, I decided to give these a try (since I typically like the products and flavors they recommend to me). I take this every time I work out (about five days a week) and it seriously makes such a difference. Not only does it taste good, but I have no muscle pain the next day.
