Product Overview

Product Overview

What is BCAA 4:1:1?

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.

What are BCAA 4:1:1 Benefits?

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.

Who is BCAA 4:1:1 Suitable for?

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.

How to take BCAA 4:1:1

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.

Key Benefits

  • Helps with the maintenance of lean mass

Not bad

I'm yet to see any gains from this product but I've only been using it for a few weeks. The taste; well it's unflavored, it's difficult to mix but eventually it does dissolve in juice and I was able to drink it. I would probably get this product again

4:1:1 perfect ratio

Awesome product again. Was pleasantly pleased when I spotted this addition to the stock. I usually add a leucine product to my bcaas to increase to content. Now there's no need. Solid taste . Well recommended. I would never train with out bcaas

Excellent BCAAs, pills very large but easily broken in two

These BCAAs are an excellent product, very large pills but exceptionally easy to break up smaller. I presume that if you're buying these you have done the research about BCAAs and if not then make sure you do because you do not want to take supplements that do not fit your goals. I feel much more energised on them, I don't suffer from DOMS in the days following a workout and I've maintained considerable size on my cut. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND these products for those cutting or bulking, excellent to maintain muscle integrity. No side effects, unlike protein shakes etc that at the very minimum will increase urine output through the roof! very good price also.

4.1.1. BCAA

Difficult to say how effective it is in such a short time. I find its best to add 10g into green tea and stir vigouresly until it dissolves (even with boiling hot water it still takes a lot of mixing). I then add some fresh orange juice (BCAA's does not taste that great so I add plenty of the juice) and I am good to go, sipping on it throughout my workout. Giving me a constant supply of BCAA's as I break down muscle.

Goes Well With:

Green tea, orange juice

Good value for money.

Really happy with this purchase, great price for BCAA when compared with other companies. Will be reordering when finished.

Goes Well With:

I use it with Beta Alinine, AAKG and citruline malate for a pre workout as good as Grenade.

BCAA 4:1:1

Yeah, its the flavorless version, so no surprises about the taste. I'm not complaining. Taste was never an issue. I found it doesn't mix at all, but I just down it in one! Most importantly of all, I am actually finding it makes a difference to my workouts. Still early days. Time will tell if the effect persists.

Goes Well With:

I just have it with water before meal.

Excellent BCAA

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.

Does exactly what it's meant to

Taste pretty rank on it's own but when you mix it with a protein drink or anything with a bit of flavour it's manageable. Definitely seem to do the job, I'm now able to increase the amount of times I go to the gym as my recovery is much faster.

It works

I mix a heaped teaspoon of this with my hot porridge oats (6 tablespoonful's) and protein powder( 1 large scoop) every morning and have noticed the difference in my muscle tone. It seems to help your body keep its muscle gains. I use a teaspoon of honey mixed in the porridge to help the taste. A few raisins and natural yogurt on top and your not feeling hungry for at least five hours. Great stuff. Give it a try. RJ

Very fine powder. Does not mix well on first shake. mixes better if left to settle. Tastes foul! Used for a while and seems to aid Recovery.

Goes Well With:

Nothing. Just gulp down and get it over with!
