This can be taken throughout the day or before and after a workout to help with the growth and maintenance of lean muscle mass.
Who are BCAA 4:1:1 Suitable for?
These are suitable for anyone taking part in intense training or exercise, or for anyone looking to increase lean mass with reducing body fat levels.
As a dietary supplement we recommend consuming 5 grams 2 - 4 times daily for optimal results.

Very good product. I personally buy the unflavoured product because I like to avoid to the colours/fillers/etc. I mix with my pre-workout and intra-workout shakes and I don't taste the product at all. BCAAs by themselves taste pretty horrible - so mix it with something!
I think BCAAs are so essential for anybody who is in the gym and working hard. It is essential for anybody who is on a contest prep.
The main reason I love this product is because of the higher content of L-Leucine in this product which as been shown to be the key in initiating protein synthesis. For this reason I buy the 4:1:1 product over the typical 1:1:1 prodcutGoes Well With:Pre-workout (ex. Pulse V4)
Any juice/water flavouring
BCAA's make all the difference
- (10 / Feb / 2014)
This is the second lot of BCAA's 4:1:1 I have purchased. If you're training hard and looking to increase your recovery rate, plus see results with lean muscle growth, this product makes all the difference when you need your body to go that bit further day after day. Protein has the BCAA's anyway but not to this degree. Take on waking, during the day, throughout and after training.
For me taste is the least important, so i use unflavoured and save the money on the flavouring and actually it ain't that bad. The only minor criticiscm i have is the mixability which, although easily solved with a good shake and a top up, is not as simple as with ther MP products.Goes Well With:Impact Whey / Whey protein.
Cut down recovery time
- (05 / Feb / 2014)
Ever since I've been taking this supplement my recovery time has become much quicker, and it seems to be improving my gains again!!!Goes Well With:Impact whey
Works like a treat especially improved recovery
Excellent product. Will definitely buy again.
a very good product from myProtein.
well done Goes Well With:instant whey
- (04 / Feb / 2014)
For the Price, this is a fantastic product, and I will keep buying it and using it. I did not like the taste to start with, but it has grown on me a lot (tropical) and mixes better than a lot of other branded BCAA's.
- (30 / Jan / 2014)
Great product, great taste and i really recommend it!
I workout 6 times a week and this is perfect before and after every single one of them.
Easy to mix and even enjoyable!Goes Well With:Recovery EVO, impact whey isolate, water & milk.

Great product to help with lean muscle growth. RECOMMENDED.
- (23 / Jan / 2014)
Been taking protein for months and months trying to gain that bit of extra weight with progress but slowly.. Thought id give this product a try as it says it helps protein synthesis.. Stuffs amazing, went from 70 to 75kg in about 3 months, definitely worth a buy if your looking to gain that extra bit.. can feel the difference.. Must have in my opinion !!Goes Well With:water
Does what it says on the tin!
- (21 / Jan / 2014)
Great product, unflavoured, mixes well, sustains workout intensity and vastly improves recovery rates. Top notch! Goes Well With:Creatine monohydrate, maltodextrin, impact whey protein.
- (20 / Jan / 2014)
I habe recently added these as a post workout drink. I have elected not to take them as recommended as a good diet would more than provide these via food and supplementation would be extra expense. I hope to therefore get these to last and take them only immediately I have exercised.Goes Well With:maltodextrin

The only problem is the mixing. I tried dissolving in a glass, but it didnt work at all, the powder floats and clumps together.
After a while I discovered that the best way is to put the powder into a bottle and shake. Then leave for 5 minutes and shake again. Repeat this one or two times and the mixture completely dissolves and you can drink as normal. I got the tropical flavour.
Does it work? Who knows. I'm currently at the gym 7 days a week so I'm obviously making gains and I think I feel a bit better in terms of recovery. There's a hundred different opinions on BCAA and they all contradict each other. Some people say you get enough natural BCAA within Protein supplements, but I just wanted to try this out for a month to form my own opinion.

Great taste and mixability. Results seem decent so far but will have to wait longer to see full picture.Goes Well With:Anything.
perfect if you fast
- (13 / Dec / 2013)
ideal for me as a preworkout, as i work out in a fasted state.
tropical is the nicest but berry is still lovely
i wont buy anything else now
- (10 / Dec / 2013)
I take it immediately before training and find it much easier to do the workout. No matter because of it's bad taste or poor mixability, I put the unflavoured powder with the spoon directly in my mouth a flush it with a water, that bad taste lasts for a milliseconds.
BCAA Tropical Storm
- (05 / Dec / 2013)
I started incorporating intermittent fasting into my bulking and cutting routines so naturally I wanted to invest in a quality BCAA product.
I tired the Tropical Storm flavor and absolutely loved it. It doesn't taste fake or over powering like alot of supplements do. Very refreshing in my opinion.
Powder is very fine and mixes very well. No froth/film on top like other samples I have tried.
I noticed substantial recovery after and during workouts. My muscles fatigued less and I was much less soar than usual, especially after leg days. Keep in mind I also used 5 grams of glutamine after post workout every day
Tastes good, and works!!!
- (05 / Dec / 2013)
Having bought the iBCAA (berry blast) I was keen to try the 4:1:1 version, esp as Leucine has been scientifically proven to enhance protein and muscle synthesis. The tropical flavour is nice, not overpowering, and unlike berry blast you cannot taste the sucralose!!!
Been using this stuff for about 3 months now, and noticed definite improvement in recovery, and moreover my muscles stay hard for longer, and look more defined. I simply take a 5g scoop in the morning, pre-WO, post -WO, and at bedtime...straight into the mouth and wash down with a gulp of water!! (on non-workout days take just morning, afternoon, bedtime)...
Ultimately, this is a supplement - there is no substitute for a good diet high in protein, proper calorie calculation, lots of water, and rest...throw in some very intense weight sessions and you will see results!!!...SIMPLES!!!Goes Well With:Straight in the mouth...gulp with water!!

Buy the flavoured one unless you like to shudder.
Well worth the money
- (12 / Nov / 2013)
This product was recommended by my PT, I previously used High 5/Zero Caffeine products as I do a lot of cycling so need the carb boost.
Very impressed with this BCAA (as with other BCAA goods) decent energy levels, both in the gym and out on bike rides. No aches after heavy workout.
I had the mixed berry (I think) decent flavour. It also mixes very easily and I was surprised as to how much (or little) was needed as the scoops seem far too small!
Will be using this going forward, as is a very good protein/carb drink. Highly recommended!

Ordered BCAA 4:1:1 Tropical Flavour. It tastes good, needs to be shaken in order for it to mix, and noticed immediate results with it.Goes Well With:Glutamine
- (31 / Oct / 2013)
i first bought the unflavoured one and found it would mix with anything it just sat on top like a lumpy mess.
But i have just got the berry blast flavour and its great it mixes with water really well and tastes good.
- (15 / Oct / 2013)
Excellent pre and post workout. Unflavoured taste and texture is a bit weird so the best way to take it is in a shake with creatine, wazy maize and some flavouring. Very happy and good resultsGoes Well With:Creatine

This product on a whole is great, first of the delivery time was great, came the next day which was very much needed. the taste is awesome, i purchased the tropical flavor, just tastes as a good as a normal fruit juice. Not been using the product that long but it has helped recovery a lot
Great product.Goes Well With:Fruit juice/ water
- (07 / Oct / 2013)
Mixes well, taste isn't great but not too bad compared to similar products. It seems to be helping muscle development, however it is still quite early in my trial of this product. With this product I've been taking whey protein, twice - three times daily. Casein protein before bed and creatin mono hydrate. I've put on weight and developed lean muscle within the first two weeks of taking these products. This is the first time I have taken BCAAs where as I've trialled the other products before, BCAAs do seem to help, however like I said it is early in the trial. Goes Well With:Protein shake and water.
- (05 / Oct / 2013)
Some damn good BCCA right here, I mix mine in with protein shakes but I also have 1 scoop with a small amount of Juice and sip it as a home made intra work out (works really well for my 2 hour workouts). By itself it tastes like absolute death, but then it's unflavoured so what do you expect, but it mixes superbly and I have never noticed it even when I've just used 100ml of juice.
As for results obviously there is a lot of factors so I can never truly say just how good it is but it gets me through my workout more than just juice by itself and I've been using it for sometime now with protein shakes or meals and I have made some significant improvements over that period in both size of muscles but also and most prominently in density and quality of muscles. They look and feel so much better now even if overall mass has only increased slightly (but still more than the expected gain for the period in question).Goes Well With:Orange or Mango juice.
Take for Results
- (01 / Oct / 2013)
I have taken BCAAs for a while now from Myprotein. They are simple and they work. It's definitely a no nonsense supplement which provides help with results after training. Take it on a spoon with a gulp of water straight after is the best method to take it pre and post training.

Mixability is no good
- (30 / Sep / 2013)
BCAA 4:1:1 has poor mixability and unflavoured in juice is really not very nice.
- (25 / Sep / 2013)
Very good product. Felt so much better since taking the prdouct. Would advise putting the powder on your tongue and washing down with a flavored still drink, may sound like effort but its the best, easiest and quickest way to take it.
- (19 / Sep / 2013)
Cheap, cheerful and does what it says on the tin and very affordable price.Goes Well With:Water
Make sure it mixes
- (17 / Sep / 2013)
BCAA 4:1:1 is a pretty good product. If it doesn't mix well it tastes disgusting, so make sure there's no lumps. I'd recommend using a a shaker and a metal ball. Goes Well With:Water, not milk!
- (16 / Sep / 2013)
This BCAA 4:1:1 is quite good, I say quite as it has an awkward taste. I have resorted to adding the powder into my shakes. Doing this hides the taste of the powder. I bought the berry flavoured pouch and I am using it pre workout, post workout and before bed. Every morning after a training day I wake up to no muscle soreness. For this reason, I give the product a 4 in overall rating as the taste is not great and the length of the scoop handle is too short. This is something I would buy again in a different flavour.
- (16 / Sep / 2013)
BCAA 4:1:1 is a great product. It definitely makes a difference in terms of recovery and DOMS. I find mixing 15-20g or so with 500ml of water makes it less of an issue in terms of mixability and taste.
- (16 / Sep / 2013)
Found this product to really make a difference with my recovery which is essential training 6 days a week. Taste was ok but best mixed in with my post workout shake, impact whey.Goes Well With:Strawberry and cream impact whey
Berry Blast vs Tropical thunder
- (12 / Sep / 2013)
I decided to try the 4:1:1 BCAA after using the normal BCAA, I like to use the powdered ones to the capsules as I like the drink.
I find the berry blast flavour a bit weak so you have to be a bit heavy handed to get a good initial flavor, but I then find the aftertaste is a bit weird.
I usually mix mine then give it a few minutes just to settle and don't find too many issues with the mixing.
The tropical flavour however initially can be very acidic and sweet to the taste so don't go too heavy handed with this one but there is no aftertaste.
I will continue to use the product I have had a small body fat percentage drop and a little weight gain so it's all going in the right direction. Plus I like the drink which I have before I train but sometimes during as well.
But I will stick to the tropical flavor.Goes Well With:Water.
- (29 / Aug / 2013)
BCAA 4:1:1 tastes pretty nice (tropical flavour), although mixing takes a while. I'm happy with the purchase. I will certainly get it again. Goes Well With:Water
