Justin, in regard to your recent qa post on your current intra drink, what is the purpose of the baking soda? And also why the addition of the bcaa's if there is the hydrolyzed casein? Just trying to understand the why behind your concoction. Also do you think just plain leucine added to an intra drink with hydrolyzed casein and hbcd would be beneficial?

The baking soda is for the sodium.

The BCAAs are 4:1:1 Leucine:isoleucine:valine
They're primarily for the Leucine (trigger for protein synthesis). That's the reason for including them in addition to the casein.

Plain leucine is a good addition to any supplement mix. It's been shown to be the specific trigger for protein you can't go wrong by including it.
