BCAA in Capsules


#1

So, I took in around 20 BCAA caps after working out today (not Biotest as I'm not in the country at the moment). Anyways about a minute after downing the pills I burped up a cloud of powder presumably from the caps. Suffice it to say it wasn't particularly pleasant. Apart from the poor taste is there anything bad about that with regards to quality of the caps and such?

drink a glass of water after taking the pills

nothing wrong with the quality, just not enough liquid in your stomach to keep it all down. imagine a scoop of protein with just a few sips of water. yuck.

like pf said, drink more water. i found it also helps to drink more water a few minutes after you take them as the gelatin capsules are breaking down more.

Thanks for the replies- I'll give it a shot.
