Amino Acid Sups

Is anyone taking amino acid supplements? If so, what type and when are you taking them and are you noticing any benefits from taking them? Thanks!

Beverly Nutrition Mass Aminos, I take 4 with whole food meal (around 20 a day). Helps you stay in a positive nitrogen balance.

You would likely get the same effect by just consuming a bit more protein with each meal.

I think I get enough from Surge and Grow! alone, not even counting the real foods I also eat throughout the day. Surge itself has something like 13g of BCAA.
