The core ingredient in the All Day You May formula is 6 grams of branched chain amino acids.
Although BCAA’s remain as one of the most popular bodybuilding supplements being sold today, the basic fact remains that they’re simply unnecessary for the vast majority of trainees in most situations.
This is because as long as you’re consuming sufficient protein from your regular diet (around 0.8-1 gram per pound of body weight daily), you’re already getting in more than enough BCAA’s to max out their benefits. Typical high protein bodybuilding food sources already contain around 15-25% BCAA’s per gram, yielding somewhere around 4-6 grams for every standard sized serving you eat.
Keep in mind that just because some BCAA’s are good doesn’t automatically mean that more is better, since your body can only utilize so much in a given day.
Excess amounts in supplemental form are not going to magically increase your muscle gains; all they’ll do is increase your credit card bill.
BCAA’s might have some minor benefits for those who are training fasted and want to preserve as much muscle as they possibly can during those periods, but for everyone else, they’re just not a necessary investment.
It should also be noted that All Day U May uses a BCAA ratio of 10:1:1, meaning you’re getting 10 parts leucine to 1 part isoleucine and 1 part valine.
Supplement companies using these higher ratios will claim that it’s because leucine is the most “anabolic” of the 3 BCAA’s.
In reality, it’s because leucine is the cheapest of the 3 and thus represents yet another opportunity to drive down production costs.
The purpose behind branched chain amino acid supplementation is to mimic the ratio found in muscle tissue, which is 2:1:1.
At 10:1:1, you might as well just be supplementing with pure leucine.
Conditionally Essential Amino Acid Blend:
This next proprietary blend delivers a combination of l-glutamine, l-carnitine l-tartrate and n-acetyl cysteine.
Just like with BCAA’s though, sufficient daily dietary protein already provides all of the glutamine needed to optimize muscle recovery and growth. [Suggested Reading: The Benefits Of Glutamine Debunked]
In addition, most orally consumed glutamine in supplemental form (around 65%) never even makes it into the bloodstream in the first place and is instead used up by the intestines for energy.
None of that even matters anyway, since All Day You May only provides a 2.8 gram dosage for the glutamine plus two other ingredients combined.
The standard glutamine dosage for bodybuilding purposes would be in the range of 5-10g+, and so even if glutamine were a useful supplement you still wouldn’t be getting nearly enough here to see any real benefit.
Essential Amino Acid Blend + Conditionally Essential Amino Acid Blend
These next two blends provide a combination of various amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein used to facilitate muscle growth.
While the list of 9 different aminos looks good on paper, a quick glance at the dosage shows an amount so small (around 1 gram for all 9 combined) that it might as well not even be included in the first place.
Your regular protein intake will provide ample amounts of all of these amino acids throughout the day, and in far higher amounts.
Intra-Cellular Buffer Blend:
Next up is a combination of creatinol o-phosphate and beta alanine at a total amount of 1.5g per scoop.
Most of the research on creatinol o-phosphate is a few decades old (note that creatinol o-phosphate and creatine are not the same thing) and primarily examined its effects as a cardio-protective drug.
In addition, the studies were conducted using direct injections into the muscle rather than oral consumption. It’s not even known at this point whether creatinol o-phosphate is bio-available in humans when consumed orally and what its specific effects would be.
And while beta alanine might have some minor benefits to squeeze out a bit more work on those higher rep sets, the minimum dosage needed for a clear performance boost is at least 3.2g daily.
Since All Day You May only provides 1.5g for the creatinol o-phosphate and beta alanine combined, you already know you’re being significantly short-changed here.
Joint Support Blend:
Lastly is a joint support blend providing 600mg of glucosamine sulfate and MSM.
The research on these two compounds is fairly mixed, and most of their joint alleviating benefits are likely only reserved for those suffering from osteoarthritis rather than those with weight training induced aches and pains.
