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
  • Contributes to the growth of lean mass
  • Great value for money

Suggested Use

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

Choose the 4:1:1 option

Overall:

5

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.

Excellent BCAA

Overall:

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.

I take 3 scoops pre workout, for me personally nothing else even comes close. I mix it in a small water bottle and shake the life out of it for 30 second's, seems to be the best way to make them mix up, taste is nothing to get excited about but I couldn't care less about the taste, just drink it and be done with it. Buy this and watch the gains, just make sure you have your diet in check and you will be good, clean bulking is way to go in 2016.

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.

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.

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 : )

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.

This stuff is absolutely disgusting!! Bought in error as my PT recommended it but also advised not to buy the unflavoured as it is unpalatable! It truely is!! The only way to drink it is to mix it with squash. It tastes like drinking diesel and it takes ages to mix properly. Can't comment on its effectiveness as I have no idea what I am supposed to look for. DON'T buy this - buy a flavoured version instead.

This BCAA is not only good for post workouts where I suffered lesser DOMS but I can have these beforehand and I perform so much better than my previous workouts. A lot of my barbell weight lifting I've PB myself by up to 10% increase on rah training! I also workout long especially Crossfit is my main training! This is a supporting aid for weight loss and/or fitness improvement! I take 5g 3 times a day of preworkout/during/post workout.

If you're on a intermittent fast then using BCAA's is a great way of maintaining muscle mass. I just add a scoop to water drinking throughout the day. Mixing isn't the best unless you use a shaker with the gizzmo. I don't see the point in having the flavoured version. It costs more and it's just additives, no real benefit.

BCAAs are a fantastic weapon against catabolising muscle tissue and necessary for a fast recovery.Because they are very beneficial for the immune system ,they are also used for several medical reasons.In my experience, the analogy of 4-1-1, has been proved wisest than others.I use this product for myself and for everyone that I train.

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!
