    Perfect Amino XP - What's the scoop?

    Hey guys!
    I'm hoping someone smarter than me on this topic can help out...If any of you are on Facebook, you might have also been bombarded by the ads for "Perfect Amino XP" by "BodyHealth"...They advertise like crazy, and although I usually steer clear of so many gimmicks, this one got me, and I wanted to have an idea if I got screwed or not...

    The Claim is that they essentially mix the proper amount of amino's (you take pending your weight, etc.), so that you get approx 30 grams of Protein, almost 100% digested, simply from this drink you take pre-work out...The explanation is below, and SEEMS to make sense as they sell it as a pre-work, so essentially I would not take protein before (or likely right after) the workout I'm thinking, as it's essentially already broken down, and proportionate to what I need...

    I often take an intra-workout, like XTend or some BCAA's (2:1:1), so I'm trying to figure out a couple questions:

    1. Have any of you tried this? Your thoughts?
    2. Are you actually getting the equivalent protein of 30 grams during that workout? Just seems like there wouldn't be much sense to even take a good whey supplement if so, but I have my doubts obviously.
    3. How would this differ from a good BCAA that you would take intra-workout, as they are persistent that you take this about 30 minutes beforehand...

    I am adding their "Pitch" here, so you can be aware of what they are claiming, and I don't think I can post links, so I'll leave this in your hands, if willing to take a look, or if you already have - Thanks for any insight you can give!!!

    Always learning!

    Their Pitch (taken off the FB ad I get like 10 times per day, lol):
    Warning, it's long, so don't feel you need to read it, unless you are into this stuff...I did break down and pick up a couple bottles, but I figure if it isn't like they advertise, I can always probably just use it as a regular intra-workout and sip away I guess?

    Did you know there is a way to bulk without having to cut? To add lean muscle without the excess fat and potential overload of the liver and kidneys from too much protein waste?
    It’s real. And it’s not hard. Just not with the protein sources most of us use which are generally over 80% converted to glucose, spiking insulin production, triglyceride production and nitrogen waste.
    There is actually a lot of misinformation that goes around about protein sources and the need for bulking and cutting.
    In reality, with the right protein source you wouldn't need to bulk and then cut, trying to save as much muscle as you can while losing the excess fat. It really isn't necessary.
    This comes down to protein utilization. There is a datum that 1 gram of protein has 4 calories. But that's a generalization. In reality every protein sources has a different caloric profile depending on how much of the protein is used for building new protein in the body… and how much is converted to sugar or fats - the actual effective calories.
    When you consume protein it's broken down into its basic building blocks, the amino acids. Your body then sifts through these for the essential amino acids - the amino acids it can't make on it's own.
    If all are present, and in the right ratio one to another, your body then uses them not only to make protein, but to make any of the other non-essential amino acids necessary to make different types of protein.
    But if there are extra essential or non-essential amino acids left over, that couldn't be paired up to make new protein, then your body doesn't store them for later like it does with fat. It has no way to.
    Instead it converts them into glucose, sugar, through a process known as gluconeogenesis, either storing them as glycogen for energy in the muscles and liver, or converting them to triglycerides - body fat.
    How does this play out with different protein sources?
    Well, BCAAs are only 3 of the Essential Amino Acids. But for your body to make new protein you need ALL of the EAAs. So BCAAs for the most part are converted straight to sugar. That's the energy boost you get but also the sugar low later on.
    Whey, pea, and soy have enough essential amino acids to be 16%-18% utilized in making new protein for muscle with the other 82%-84% converted to sugar or fat.
    Meats are 32% utilized for protein building and whole eggs are 48% utilized. (But they have to be whole eggs. Egg whites alone only have enough EEAs in the correct ratio to be only 16% utilized for new protein).
    As you see, each of these provides a large source of calories when taken, and it is this that makes it necessary to bulk and cut.
    That’s where PerfectAmino comes in.
    PerfectAmino is pure essential amino acids (and nothing else), in the exact ratio necessary to build new protein in the human body. Because of this it's 99% utilized for the manufacture of new protein and collagen - without the calories or nitrogenous waste.
    How does it compare?
    One serving of PerfectAmino is equivalent to 30 grams of whey protein - but instead of 120 calories... you get 2.
    Taking PerfectAmino allows for a true Lean Bulk, where one can just keep adding lean muscle without having to cut, keeping all their muscle mass along the way.
    In fact, when taken 20-30 minutes before a workout, PerfectAmino is fully absorbed into the bloodstream within an average of 23 minutes and able to help repair micro-tears in the muscle as they occur, leading to increased endurance, faster recoveries and no muscle loss.
    Also, as there are only 2 calories per serving, it’s perfect for Intermittent Fasting as it won’t break a fast and prevents muscle loss during fasts. We’ve even had some customers report that during 3-day fasts, taking only PerfectAmino and water — and still working out — they not only lost no muscle, but continued to gain.
    For building lean muscle - without the calories or need to cut, and without any additives - there is nothing better. PerfectAmino truly is the perfect protein source.

    Okay, I'm an idiot - When giving them a swerve, you mean give them a try, or stay away?
    Assuming you are meaning to steer clear of em', but just want to be sure - And if so, why? I would often sip BCAA's intra-workout, and from what I understood, it was helpful, but all ears - I'm pretty old school, and things have changed a lot over the years, and I am certainly not up to date on all the new stuff!

    Thanks for your response!
