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.
As a dietary supplement we recommend consuming 5 grams 2 - 4 times daily for optimal results.
Best consumed with your preferred amount of water or fruit juice.
Add 2 heaped MP small scoops (5g) to your preferred amount of water or fruit juice and consume immediately.
1 x level MP Plastic Scoop (small) weighs 2.2g. (not included)

The only thing about this is that there may need a little more flavour to the BCAA else it is good, giving the feeling of wellness when training
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.
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
very nice flavours. mixes well. a nice addition to my PWO shake.

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.
Hi.. I have been using this item for the last 3 weeks and it does what it says, at a brilliant price although its a bit of a pain to mix but once its down the hatch it ok no big dramas..
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
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
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.
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
