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.

Beat tasting BAR out there!

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!

Choose the 4:1:1 option

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.

Great for preventing DOMS

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.

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.

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 : )

Works for me!

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.

Quality.

Great product. Ordered the summer fruits flavour mixed it will 2 litres of water and consumed throughout the day. Seem to have a slight powdery taste to it so just dropped in a bit of cordial and good to go. I would also put some in the protein shake but I have chocolate so don't think it would taste right.

When taste and performance mix well in water!

Having had BCAA before, although I am not sure what brand, I expected to have to choke this down during bike rides or a workout, teeth clenched to keep my mouth from spontaneously ejecting it whilst willing my tastebuds not to revolt and throw themselves down my throat hoping to drown in the vile swill I had subjected themselves. Colour me deliriously surprised!! The taste is actually quite nice although I only add it to water, so it isn't masked by juice. In terms of mixing, I simply add to water in my bottle and shake. Mixes well. Been using it for just over a week and I love it. I think it has helped especially in terms of my riding endurance having done just over 50 miles while using it and whether it is the placebo effect or not, I plan to keep using it.

BCAA bliss

Having used Optimum Nutrition's Amino Energy before, I wanted to give My Protein's BCCA a go. I was keen to try something that represented a bit more value for money. Having purchased the Berry Blast flavour, I was not disappointed. Not only did it mix easy, it tasted fruity and pleasantly refreshing. I was expecting more of a powdery chemical aftertaste, but really enjoyed sipping this during training, or on my way to work. A great alternative to water to keep you hydrated, with noticeable enhanced recovery from weight training.

The trick to getting it to dissolve is....

Really good product. Has helped my recovery massively. Strength has gone up and PB'ed on quite a few exercises over last couple of weeks since I started taking this. I take a pretty massive dosage each time, so end up with a very strong flavour and a little bit too sweet, but that's purely my own choice of dosage. I'm sure a normal dose is fine flavour-wise. Both tropical and berry taste good. Berry is like Robinson's summer fruit squash, tropical is quite citrus-y. Some other reviewers comments on not being able to dissolve it properly. The trick is to half fill your bottle (or shaker) with water, add your whole desired BCAA serving, shake profusely - leaving space in the bottle for everything to get mixed around is key - and then add the rest for your water and shake again. Works for me every time and all dissolves.

The products from MYPROTEIN are, the finest quality. I love the discounts MYPROTEIN team is making everyday. Also the range of the products its amazing. The website is extremely functional for the products you have, it is structured and designed user friendly.

A Staple of any Dutting Diet

Bought BCAA 4:1:1 Berry Blast flavour after trying the Unflavoured version. I can say the flavour is certainly bearable and is somewhat tasty which is great when drinking with water intra-workout. The Leucine content is ideal for my cutting cycle and has certainly helped my body preserve lean muscle tissue. BCAA are a stplae of any cutting workout & personally I take 2.5g morning, pre /post workout and before bed.

Water or any flavoured drink.

Overall great product

I have used this supplement for a couple of month now and I have to say its a really good product. I would recommend the product if you are shredding, lean bulk, preparing for a photo-shoot or just the summer in general. If you are using 2 scoops in 1 shake ensure its a big bottle otherwise the taste of the BCAA's will over power the drink.

After taking this product I noticed dry patches of skin appearing all over my stomach and arms eventually covering my whole chest and hands, signs very similar to eczema Became very sore so I had to stop using, after a week of no BCAA it had cleared up I waited a fortnight and tried again but after two days the eczema came back I am an avid supporter of My protein and use impact whey and creapure with no issues and get great gains but there is something in this product that doesn't agree with me I am 41 years old and have never had eczema in my life so was surprised to see this Disappointed as I bought 1kg of this!

BCAAs 4:1:1

I'm not in the first flush of youth but greatly enjoy weight training non the less. What research I've done suggests that the 4:1;1; ration of B.C.A.A.s is ideal for helping to prevent muscle loss in the older trainer. Since I've been taking these (i use the powder) my recovery time and energy levels have both improved. Another advantage is that it's easy to ensure a good protein intake if your appetite or circumstances prevent a large dietary protein intake.

Goes Well With:

I have no problem with mixing it with water. I use the unflavoured variety and find that the taste isn't that bad at all and doesn't seem to linger anyway. It also mixes well if add to shakes and smoothies.
