APS Nutrition Chain'd Reaction
The most effective BCAA supplement, period.
Just when you thought about giving up on BCAA supplements, APS Nutrition has dropped a bombshell on the BCAA category in the sport nutrition industry. They have released Chain'd Reaction, single handingly destroying any other BCAA supplement available. In today's market, you are going to see all sorts of hype to see who can have the biggest ratio of BCAA's in their product, but it's all hype. APS Nutrition uses scientifically proven 2:1:1 ratio of BCAAs - Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine in Chain'd Reaction. If it's not scientifically proven, why use it? This is why this product is the most advanced post-workout performance supplement available for those putting their body through stress and physically demanding workouts. No matter beginner, weekend warrior or advanced bodybuilding, this product will work for you!
Time Released: Unlike other competitor BCAA products, APS Nutrition uses a time releasing matrix (APS's Micro-Rx™ and Extend-Rx™ technologies) of L-Leucine to help your aminos get into the muscles quickly, but also to make them stay there longer. This means less time for catabolism.
Other Ingredients: Along with Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, APS Nutrition added Glutamine and a high dose of it. They also added Sustamine, which can help with water and electrolyte absorption. Both of these ingredients will help you recovery quickly and help fight off fatigue.

Good but average
APS Nutrition is a pretty hardcore supplement brand. I like the brands that support athletes who are hardcore and really put in the effort to be where they are. There are a few different supplement companies like that, and APS is one of them. Chain'd Reaction is a cool supplement because it will give you some decent energy as long as you do not have a very high caffeine tolerance. However, it is pretty much going to be like most other pre workout supplements that you will take.
