Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) 4:1:1 tablets contain three of the 9 essential amino acids, Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine in a 4:1:1 ratio. These amino acids are considered to be essential amino acids as they cannot be synthesised in the body and therefore must be consumed through the diet.
BCAAs are not like other amino acids as they are not metabolised in the stomach, and are instead metabolised directly in the muscle. BCAA 4:1:1 can be taken throughout the day or before and after a workout to help with the growth and maintenance of lean muscle mass.
Generally BCAA 4:1:1 can be taken by active individuals and are suitable for anyone taking part in intense training, looking to increase lean mass whilst looking to reduce body fat levels.
5 grams of BCAA 4:1:1 can be taken 2-4 times daily with your preferred amount of water, whereby for best results we suggest adding two MP small scoops to your favourite fruit juice.
Add your preferred amount of water or fruit juice into our shaker. Then add 5g, shake and consume. Use 2-4 times daily for optimal results.
Note: We advise that all servings are measured using an accurate set of scales. While we make every attempt to provide an accurate equivalent measure using our Myprotein scoops, these are only approximate and are not a substitute for using a standardised measuring device.
Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dose. This product is a food supplement and therefore should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. Store in a cool dry place, out of the reach of young children.

Let's be honest, we all know why we're here. We know the effects of BCAA and we know it should be a staple in our supplement stacks, BUT if death had a taste, it would taste like BCAAs! Well, not anymore - I'd just about given up on raw BCAA powder, opting instead for capsules, but prohibitive costs forced me to reassess the powder situation. I'd heard this was a stomacable so gave it a try, just to be on the safe side, I ordered some extra just in case. Yeah I didn't need the extra flavouring! I mixed 20g with 1.5L of water (additional 20g of pepto pro as well) and started shaking, low and behold it wasn't soluble, foamed at the top and "here we go again", I thought. Got in the car, headed for the gym and by the time I'd got there (about 10 mins) the liquid was spotless! Everything dissolved perfectly. The taste is non existant (MyProtein's berry blast flavouring isn't the best in the world, but if this was the extent of my worries, I was happy). I kid you not, BCAAs are now, not only tolerable, but quite enjoyable. Top tip - add the water on top of the BCAA powder, shake and then let stand for 5 mins, shake again and you'll be good to go! Wizard!
im a regular lifter and always taken bcaas as part of my diet. I've found it has helped me with steady gains and I've not really had any complaints... However as the summer fast approaches and like everyone else I've started my shred phase, whilst trying to maintain size. Being a ' normal' lad, working shifts, not being able to get in meals every two hours or train at the same time every day is hard work and the final result we all look for seems impossible to achieve. However I recently purchased this product and I've not been disappointed.. I've found that taking this 4 times a day with meals and combined with my diet, supplements and training has given me the lean mass and look I'm aiming for. if you want to jump on the gains train, I'd recommend this product.. Well done my protein
Recently bought these after making the switch from regular BCAA powder. The 4:1:1 option is noticeably better for helping my aches and pains after hard gym sessions. Recovery is reduced a little more than the BCAA 2:1:1 for me personally and I've noticed a difference in reduced body fat % so I'm guessing this played a role with acetyl l-carnitine. I'd recommend starting with the 2:1:1 powder for beginners still, but when progress starts showing I'd definitely recommend changing to the 4:1:1 formula.
I got unflavoured as I hate the sickly sweet taste of sweetened supplements. WOW did these BCAAs taste bad! At first I wondered if it made my breath smell even! It doesn't mix in particularly easily either - I mix with water and it will take some good shaking to stop it from just sitting on the top there in an unattractive lump. Keep shaking and it eventually mixes in (or leave for a bit and shake again). Having said all this I did think this supplement was particularly effective. Perhaps it was psychosomatic but I felt like I was working out harder and more effectively when I used the BCAAs. I am small and find it hard to put on muscle and maintain weight, which is why I tried this product and my perception has been that they are effective and I would purchase again. Goes Well With:Just shut your eyes and think of England
Product did exactly what it said on the website, so no complaints there. In fact, I am very impressed with its effectiveness. I went for the unflavoured option, and it tastes terrible! So if taste is a big issue for you I would recommend the berry blast. I just mixed it with a bit of water and chugged it like medicine.
At first I wasn't sure about buying this, but eventually I've bought this product and man, I wasn't disappointed. I have gained some mass and my muscles are leaner and denser. I would recommend this to anybody who tries to get leaner muscles and muscle mass + it helps to keep muscle when doing cardio training. The only downside of this product is its taste and mixability, but this can be easily fixed by mixing the BCAA with protein powder or any type of other supplement. If your not sure to buy this product just go for it, you wont regret it.Goes Well With:Protein powder, dextrose, oats, fruit juice or water.
Do not order the unflavoured one under any circumstances, tastes disgusting!
Mixed in a protein shake with my normal combos, but this even powers through the flavour. Not enjoying this at all, next time back to the tablets! Goes Well With:Lack of taste buds, maybe a lot of flavour to overcome bitter gravel taste.
Excellent gains when used alongside whey protein. Great tasting and mixes well
Great taste and fantastic product. Can't recommend enough.
got the unflavoured version, kinda wish I hadn't, tastes like salt, however if mixed with some juice its ok, been on it three weeks and noticed a difference, would recommend
Been using BCAA 4:1:1 as a pre and intra works well less doms the next day,! I recently had acute food poisoning I was in bed for 4days couldn't stomach any food or my protein shakes was on rehydration salts and antibiotics I was worried about losing muscle mass and going catabolic because I couldn't eat anything fortunately I could still manage some fluids. I had 4 BCAA's drinks a day and hoped this would maintain my muscle mass and keep anabolic whilst not being able to eat. The following week I felt so much better if not a little tired I hit my gym and to my surprise my strength had not decreased at all And as for muscle mass no decrease in size lost a little fat though which isn't a bad thing. Overall great product even if you just buy a bag in case you ill sometime : )Goes Well With:Water
I have tried traditional 2:1:1 BCAAs and 8:1:1 of another brand however I have found that 4:1:1 BCAA have given me the best results. I have read a variety of information that there is no scientific research to show that a higher Leucine ratio is more effective but personally it appears to work for my body. I drink them throughout the day and have found that pre and intra they give me greater energy and endurance and with post workout they appear to aid my recovery very nicely. Taste gets a 5* as I like both the Tropical and Berry Blast Flavours and can drink them freely and as anyone who has ever tasted unflavoured BCAAs will know, anything that makes them taste less of pure evil is a good thing. However, be aware that the taste is strong so anything you add it to (e.g. protein shake, Greek yoghurt, etc.) will end up tasting of the BCAA flavour. The mixability dropped a mark as in a water bottle it appears that if you use water that is too cold (as it is from most water fountains in the gym) the mixture goes a little clumpy. But that's not really anything to complain about as they break up in the spout so I can tell you for sure I will continue to use this product. Goes Well With:Water, Protein or Greek Yoghurt.
I have been extremely happy with this product. Mixes well, tastes nice. I add it to a litre of water and use it during workouts and also sometimes take it to work and sip it throughout the day. EasyGoes Well With:Water Can imagine you could add creative easily
Does what it says on the tin! Regularly buyGoes Well With:Mix with flavoured protein as unflavoured is a horilrid taste
I have been using this for just under a fortnight now and have been pleased so far. Seems to help you give a little more during workout compared to plain water. I'm also on a highish protein phase as well. I have the Berry Burst flavour and it's perfectly tolerable, a bit like a berry version of those little parma violet sweets you had as a kid! I do not use a conventional shaker for this but add it to my water container and use a battery operated cocktail mixer wand and it mixes perfectly. The powder is VERY fine and after rooting around in the pack I found the little scoop, I do however always weigh my supplements on a digital scale out of habit anyway. Only given 4 stars for effectiveness as I haven't been using the product for long enough but I haven't experienced anything untoward or spontaneously combusted...yet. lol! Goes Well With:Just water at the moment.
Effective for recovery and tastes nice to boot
This Bcaa's taste amasing and they give me extra energy and a faster recovery during my workout. Regarding mixability, they don't mix well with a lot of water.
This seems to be really making a difference. I add it to my regular whey protein mix and my muscles seem to recover much quicker. Great progress so far! I am looking forward to trying the other flavours.Goes Well With:regular whey protein shake
This seems to be really making a difference. I add it to my regular whey protein mix and my muscles seem to recover much quicker. Great progress so far!Goes Well With:blueberry cheesecake whey protein :)
Great mixability with good taste - berry blast Useful before, during or after training Recommend
I love this protein, but its a shame to not to be able to choose the flavor you want when you get a bundle. This product is cheap and really effective!! Everyone should try it! In order to get a good mix you need a lot of water!! After of using it for 2 weeks, my muscles recover must faster and i dont feel tired( as i was feeling before i started using this product)Goes Well With:Impact Whey
Works a lot better than just normal bcaas. Berry blast flavour tastes good and is brilliant for rehydration as well as helping during long workouts. Preserved muscle mass while cutting down also so does the job.
I ordered the unflavoured by mistake instead of tropical and is it awful! Can't drink it no matter how much water I mix it with just an unpleasant taste! Goes Well With:The drain
Awesome taste, easy to mix, great supplement to take during the workout and prevent muscle loss Goes Well With:Water
This is one of the best tasting bcaa powders out there, I chose tropical favour and it tastes like squash! I'm definitely not suffering with DOMS as much either! I have and would recommend it ! Goes Well With:Water
Sick products absolutely love them! Wouldn't go anywhere else. Had the best results for years with these products. Goes Well With:Impact whey isolate strawberry cream
Awesome product, mixes really well with water and the berry flavour is really nice. Delivery also very good!
had been using the pill form which was great but find that mixing this stuff into water with or with whey works great. I feel good pre and post GYM. will continue to use :)Goes Well With:Chocolate Brownie Instant Whey Protein
after first purchasing this product, i have ordered two extra bags due to it being very effective in my training and tasting incredible before, during and after training. 10/10Goes Well With:water, pre-workout and post workout
After running out of the pills I decided I wanted to go more cost effective and get a kilo of powder, especially as it was on sale. But sweet mother of god I wish I'd read the reviews first and got flavoured! The effectiveness is great but unflavoured just tastes somewhere in between crushed paracetamol and chlorine. Basically, worth buying? YES BUT NOT UNFLAVOURED!Goes Well With:Anything strong enough to drown it out!
Does the job but doesn't mix particularly well and tastes rank. I usually mix it up with my protein and although it does have an effect on the taste it's not enough to worry about.Goes Well With:Protein shake
I tried this, I didn't feel that much effect of BCAA. taste is fine, but with very good mixing quality.
This product seems to do what it's meant to, slight increase in strength/energy and noticeable decrease in soreness after workouts/increased recovery. Doesn't mix well at all though, needs to be put in a shaker and really shaken well, won't mix with spoon/fork.
Very good seen good resultsGoes Well With:Creatine power take both with water at the same time in the morning then 45 mins before gym
Product is of high standard good quality as always with MP products, great results with BCAA 4:1:1 will be making a purchase again, well done MP. Goes Well With:My whey protein.
This product satisfied me but there are flaws. The label doesn't tell me how many calories it has. The mixability is pretty low. The taste is meh. But the only issue to me is the label.
I can't comment on performance yet but the taste is good I got the orange favour an it taste like orange juice if not abit sweet. Goes Well With:Water..
They work really well, feel a lot better in the gym when ive had them, you can tell they're in your drink with unflavoured one and sometimes take a little bit longer to dissolve but All in all absolutely great, already reordered!Goes Well With:Your favourite squash and creatine monohydrate
Having always had flavoured BCAAs in the past I was reluctant to get 'unflavoured', especially after trying some before and feeling like is just drank something from the washing up cupboard. However, I bit the bullet and bought unflavoured. In all honesty I could drink it on it's own when needed, I only add a touch of dilute juice to take the slight weird taste away. With cordial you don't even taste the BCAAs, no funny after taste that makes you pull a face and effective! Good purchase very happy! Goes Well With:Orange or black currant juice!!!
I really like the 4:1:1 mix, and it tasted great. Using it intra workout every day.
I'm on the body coach plan so this is part of my routine pre & post work out. The flavour takes a bit of getting used to but after a few days it was fine. Hardish to mix together without getting a froth on top. Worked out shaking up in a bottle that is held upside down is a good way to go it. Would buy again!
One of the best price/quality Bcaa on the market. Good mixability, little too sweet ( melon ). Im using durnig workout and like it!
Been taking this product for around a week now and must say, Ive grown to love the taste. I take this in a morning with my breakfast as well as having it as a pre/during workout drink with a scoop of tropical creapure. It mixes well in a 'My Protein' shaker and is actually very refreshing. As for results, Ive not been taking this for long so haven't noticed any change although, I don't believe any results can really be put down to the use of a single supplement anyway. For the price of a 2kg bag and the amount of servings you get, the cost is negligible, theres no reason not to give this a go. Goes Well With:Tropical Creapure, water.
Mixes well and cheap enough to mix in with my drink that I have thoughtout the day to keep my aminos up
used during my cut, 5g whilst doing morning cardio, then 5g inbertween meals. 10-15g during workout. consumed when ever there is no food in your system, helps promote muscle synthesis and prevents muscle wastage. noticeable more energy in my workouts, stomach wasn't growling halfway through work out. Draw backs -first week when consuming, lips dried out a lot, purely down to the bcaas, after a few weeks completely fine. -dependent on food intake during the day, sometimes feel bloated when consuming BCAA's during my work out Overall great product and should be a staple in anyones plan. Food is the most important then BCAA's! Goes Well With:water, juice
This review isn't a reflection of MyProtein at all - I love a lot of their products and delivery is always quick and prices reasonable. However the taste of this in the summer berry flavour is grim! It does mix well with water but i honestly nearly made me sick the taste was so vile - very synthetic and chemically. I didn't try it with juice, so that may make it better, and also I can't comment in its effectiveness because I only used it once and couldn't face using it again! Goes Well With:definitely not water!
Haven't been on this combination that long but I have already noticed an improvement in recovery and I seem able to work with greater intensity. Goes Well With:Water, yoghurt
Great all rounder BCAA, use it during my workout to help with endurance
Bought this as it was a great offer for BCAA. Love the taste got the tropical punch. Mixes really well with water. I use this during my workout. Only thing that I was very unhappy with was that it had no scoop. Where is my scoop myprotein? :( Goes Well With:Really cold water.
