I think these tablets are making a difference, however the same as everyone else they are far too big on more than one occasion I got the tablets stuck in my throat. Not great when your at the gym trying to find some bread to chase it down as waters just not doing it. I have since grinded them up and added to two soft gels bought on line. I will not be buying again I will buy in powder form from now on. I would rather take 4x smaller tablets than 1 of these. Goes Well With:All supplements
These tablets will kill someone. They are far to large and nearly impossible to swallow even when you break them up. Contacted my protein, they couldn't care less. STAY AWAY FROM THESE.
Tablets are a little hard to swallow whole. Found it easier to break them in half. The only problem then is that im taking a range of 13 smaller tablets (combined with other multivits and creatine). I get some funny looks at work, when Im gulping down so many tablets and washing them down with a protein shake, but as long as they do the job, who cares? Im more interested in the gains than what other people think ;-)
So I got these tablets upon referral and when I looked at them they looked pretty huge compared to all the other supps I had bought. Under the directions there was no mention of difficulty in taking them so I tried. When I tried to swallow a whole tablet I almost choked to death, luckily I was with someone!! Even cut in half they are difficult to swallow, they are so big and chalky! there should definitely be a warning on them! Once I've finished them I'll see if there's an alternative out there!
Hard to swallow need a lot of water to take them
I was very disappointed with these, they are so huge I cannot swallow them. I started choking on them so then tried to cut them in half but had same problem, feel like I wasted my money on them as I can't use them. I was recommended to take 4 at bedtime - can't even take 1. I take a lot of vitamin supplements so am used to taking pills, feeling disappointed.
Sorry it's not a review, I am just trying to find out if you can crush these tabs down to powder then take as I can't swallow them even in thirds, any help much appreciated.
These tablets are effective but should come with a choking hazard difficult to swallow even when halved may go for powder form next time.
Hi guys I have now been taking these bcca tablets for a week and within the week I can see how much it helps me recover ! I was very ware that it wouldn't make any difference at all. I work shift work and I have found taking theses have also improved my energy levels at work so I would defo recommend them. The only down fall is they are hard to swallow.
The only minus is that is difficult to swallow. You should put it really back on your tongue and then swallow with water or you should brake it to some smaller pieces. and than take with water.
If you wish to choke to death then by all means purchase this product. Cant believe MP actually continue to sell this. Tablets are huge and are very difficult to swallow. I successfully managed to swallow one (with great difficulty) and then choked on the second. Threw the rest away due to fear of death. Shocking product. Complete waste of money and I wish I read the reviews before I bought it. DO NOT BUY.Goes Well With:Death
I find these tablets incredibly difficult to swallow and even breaking them in half still find them lodging in my throat. Would prefer a gel coated version to deliver amino acids slowly to compliment the quick release powder. I am crushing them up which defeats the object of slow release.
I cannot yet comment on the effectiveness of these. However I can say that they are very big pills and extremely difficult to swallow. I'm not sure I'll be buying them again because of this.
Do what they are supposed to, big enough to choke a donkey though!
I have been doing a health plan for the last 4 weeks now and as part of it I have been taking BCAA tablets. After intense exercise I have been taking them and I firmly believe my recovery has happened so fast and I am ready to hit the gym the next day again with no aches or pains. Goes Well With:Omega 3, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium
stay well clear of these - giant tablets impossible to swallow*********
As the title says do not try to swallow these whole, you must break them up by chewing and then down them (in parts) with water or you risk choking if you don't...trust me. They are good however as you get a whole gram of leucine in just one tablet and no need to measure out etc. so very convenient, i just take 1-2 tabs 2-3 times a day when needed. I do think however the 2:1:1 ratio would be a better choice as studies show that this is the best ration. Leucine will deplete the other two amino acids and that will stop muscle protein synthesis which would be the opposite of what you want. The B6 vitamin is also a good addition however I worry that as i would like to use these long term the B6 could built up over time and cause problems, not to mention all the other things that i take with B6 added.Goes Well With:water and meals low in BCAA's
Quite large tablets, a little difficult to swallow
Quite big tablets. I take 4 at bedtime (my current programme requirement) so take a bit of swallowing! Perhaps it's because of the volume I take. Ok taste tho.
I use these every morning before I hit the gym to fight against breakdown of lean tissue and they have become a cornerstone of my pre workout mix. Using for 9 months and have 115% increase in strength and reduced body fat 20-25% losing minimal lean mass. Lifesaver for cutting.Goes Well With:Creapure/vitamin c/ thermo extreme
The taste of these tablets if awful. I need about a litre of water to be able to swallow them. But in saying that I am starting to see results. Still not sure if I would purchase again.
I will never recommend anyone take these! My Protein should be ashamed at their lack of care. Ridiculous tablets, fit for horse size people only...& they simply stick in your airway (be it whole, or divided into 3rds!) I ain't no wuss! These are sooooo poorly made & incredibly dangerous. I won't even tell my story about them....you can leave that to your imagination. Take at your own risk.
They are huge tablets and not a capsule either, so extremely difficult to swallow. When they do get stuck, there isn't much flavour (like some chalky paracetamols for instance), which is a bonus. But overall, tablets are just too big and non-capsule
These tablets really do the job, I take them before bed on the days I train and they definitely have a good effect on my muscles. I also have a BCAA pre and post workout drink and in combination with these tablets I never have sore muscles the next day. The only negative I can find is the size of the tablets. They are quite big and when you are taking 3 or 4 one after another it can be a bit much. Goes Well With:My protein BCAA powder
I've nearly died 3 times taking these enormous tablets, even when cut in half they still stick in my throat and end up regurgitated! I really want to feel the benefits, but they just won't go down! Please, please, please my protein.... make them smaller or in capsules.
Pills are big and chalky on the outside but if you take with a lot of water then they go down fine. I take before bed.Goes Well With:Water or squash as they do taste chalkified if they stay in your mouth too long!
Highly beneficial supplement. All new members use my code MP26870082 for triple loyalty points on your order!
These are big tablets but I don't have any problem swallowing them with water. I take 3 after my workout to keep me going until my protein shake, which is often delayed. I have been taking them for a while and I think they help to reduce DOMS. I used to take 3 pre-train too, and at the time I thought it extended my time to fatigue.Goes Well With:water, training
Recommended by The Body Coach and works a treat
Great product, a bit big but it's nothing you can't swallow whole
Love the mix of 4:1:1 in these tablets. And they work for me; I have noticed a reduction in DOMS which is a real relief, and was the main reason I take them. However.......as many have said there are issues with the size of them. If I had the gag reflex of a sword swallower then it would be fine but alas life had other career plans for me. I have just reordered BCAAs from myprotein but this time have opted for the powder.
I have definitely noticed a difference in recovery since taking these on training days. However they are not the easiest to swallow due to their size. Would be much easier if they were capsulated.
easy to swallow. no nasty taste. my recovery time after an intense session is decreasing every day. get a great pump when stacked with my pre and creatine !! would buy again!!Goes Well With:my pre mp l leucine mp electrolytes
I found that the pills were too big and struggled to swallow them a lot of the time. Although they are of really good quality and pretty effective, especially at that price! Would buy smaller pills next time
Great Lucien ratio, good value for money. These tablets are quite chunky but not bad tasting. The best BCAA's I have come across and I have noticed massive improvements in my workouts / recovery.Goes Well With:Muscles
I find these tablets nearly impossible to swallow even if broken into small pieces. They seem to stick even after downing a pint of water! I think I will by powder form next time because the only way I can take these is by grinding them to dust!
Great product. Saw noticeable results. More definition and better recovery
Not sure how efficient they are as I cannot swallow them even if I break them u in to smal pieces they seem to scratch My throat and sometimes get stuck
Overall, I was fond of this product mainly because of its high Vitamin B content which is something I lack due to my low carb diet I am doing in order to lose weight. This is a very good product for recovery. I really did feel the significance as I started taking 3 tablets twice a day. 3 tablets in the morning after a light breakfast, and the next 3 straight after my workout (I take 5 grams of creatine pre-workout). I really feel the difference when I take these tablets. Primarily because my body doesn't ache as much the day after I excersize, which is what usually happened. Mixibility? There isn't any. The creatine tablet can even dissolve in water yet this doesn't. Its not as big as the MyProtein creatine tablets though. These tablets are generally easy to take in with water anyway. Goes Well With:Water,
Big problem with these is the fact that they're so big that i don't think you can digest them quickly enough. get the soft gel ones!!!
These tablets are working very well for me, they are effective throughout the day and supply me with energy for the gym and while at work highly recommend them to peopleGoes Well With:Goes very well with all my other purchases I bought love them!
Actually not so bad, but if be honest BCAA 1500 better to me. However rating 4 stars.
Very good product which is an essential part of building muscle, delivery time was excellent and had no issues. Will be ordering more.Goes Well With:creatine, beta alinine, whey
Really happy wih the delivery was fast and also communicated when it was arriving. Great product would reccommend
The tablets are great in terms of effectiveness and the high quality expected of myprotein products but their size is humongous and often times very hard to swallow. It takes me almost a litre of water and repeated attempts to swallow four tablets and even then sometimes I worry i might choke and I'm seriously considering from now on smashing them and mixing on water to drink, it might be the shape of the tablets or their size but just a friendly recommendation to look into this in detail
product is great it certainly helps recovery and protein synthesis in the muscles. I got 2 units from a friend who visited India. I need some technical information. why B6 is added and how 4:1:1 is better than 2:1:1 ratio?Goes Well With:my Whey Protein
Do what they are meant to do help with recovery and muscle maintenance.
A great all round product that helps give that edge when training and recovery. Using this product has boosted energy levels and decreased my recovery time significantly!Goes Well With:Impact Whey Protein - Cookies & Cream
next time i will take bcaa 1500 because i felt more energy and rest after intense workout..these are not also bad but...
