Cellucor is a big player in the sports supplements industry and we’ve always loved their dedication to offering the most variety in workout supplements and supplement flavors. Though, if your interested in stocking up in amino acids from Cellucor; then you may be unsure about which of their 3 amino acid supplements is right for your specific goals. Well, we’ve done our research and here are the facts that separate these 3 amino acid products and who they are designed for.
Cellucor COR beta-BCAA vs. Best-BCAA vs. Alpha-AMINO
Below we have summarized each of the amino acid supplements by Cellucor to the best of our knowledge. We hope that this helps you to make your decision when choosing your next amino acid supplement. If you are still undecided, you can view our Best Intra Workout Supplements list for additional options on amino acids to add to your bodybuilding supplement stack.
COR performance Beta-BCAA
Beta-BCAA contains a standard branch chain amino acid profile along with university studied HICA and beta-alanine. Over 25% of the active ingredients in beta-BCAA are Leucine: the most anabolic amino acid. Pair this with HICA (an anabolic metabolite of leucine), and it is easy to see that this BCAA has muscle building potential. In our opinion, Beta-BCAA is most effectively directed towards individuals concentrating on gaining muscle mass; though it can also be taken during dieting or standard recovery.
Best BCAA contains the standard amino acids found in any branch chain formula; however, they are delivered in very specific sequences. Many of the important, anabolic amino acids have a hard time absorbing into our bodies due to acidity preferences and general solubility. We articulate that this is the basis behind Best-BCAA’s unique chains. By sequencing these hard-to-absorb amino acids with easily absorbed amino acids (acting as transporters); the efficiency of amino uptake can be greatly increased. This BCAA is also paired with 1,000mg of CLA, suggesting its preference towards lean body preservation and fat metabolism. Therefore, we recommend this BCAA for those dieting or in cutting phases.
This BCAA is a true intra-workout supplement. Alpha-AMINO contains a multi-form leucine matrix along with complimenting amino acids and a hydration/endurance formula. We pair this supplement to be another BCAA for those seeking to stack on muscle gains like beta-BCAA users. Though, we strongly wish Cellucor would have combined the ingredients of Alpha-AMINO with Beta-BCAA for a powerhouse of a muscle building BCAA supplement; that would have been epic.
