There was nothing wrong with the dnbjoe’s statement.
With reference to consumption in any large quantities and in reference to aiding muscle, or with reference to any purpose usually intended with BCAA’s, collagen indeed is not the best source of aminos because the amino acid profile is not the best for aiding muscle,
being low in BCAA’s and having quite useless, for that purpose, amounts of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, to the point of ridiculousness.
Probably a good amino acid composition for aiding cartilage, skin, and finger and toe nails, but hardly ideal for muscle in larger quantities. Nowhere near even close.
Interestingly though in small quantities it can enhance biological value of meat protein if that meat is at the lower end of the spectrum in collagen content. It’s possible that this is where you observed your benefit.
But this is a different thing than what is ordinarily intended from BCAA supplementation, and so does not invalidate dnbjoe’s statement.
By the way, a cheaper and much non-nasty way of getting essentially the same amino acid profile as hydrolyzed collagen is to buy plain gelatin packets.
And none of what you’ve stated invalidates my own personal experience. I’ve used such supplements for many years and have gotten stronger and larger on them. So, I reiterate…bullshit.
Too bad you can’t tell where the “bullshit” really lies, and are so closed-minded that anything you can’t understand is “bullshit” to you and you so thoroughly lack a brain/mouth (or brain/hand) filter that you can’t keep comments like that to yourself.
And it’s too bad that you don’t have the manners of a decent human being. Some don’t. Those that don’t, aren’t worth anyone’s time.
Perhaps you need to gain some reading comprehension skills. So long as those are lacking, you’re wasting your time reading what anyone writes. I certainly am not going to waste my time responding further than this to someone that obviously can’t comprehend.
