T-Nation, after all is funded by Biotest, so it's no surprise that they tout Biotest products at every given opportunity. Fair enough I'd say, so that not a dig.
I've not tried Plazma (I live in Bangkok so I'd be getting my pants pulled down left right and center for shipping and import tax), but I've concocted something similar with cyclic dextrins/palatinose, CHO, leucine etc and I must say that it's pretty damn good.
Plazma - 'game changer' - If you are TRAINING HARD AND FREQUENT I would not disagree, as I'm doing just that and getting good results with my home brew.
Pricey, but you get what you pay for
