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.
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.
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)
BCAA (Leucine:Isoleucine:Valine), BCAA (Leucine:Isoleucine:Valine), Citric Acid (berry blast flavour only), Colourings (Beetroot Red [berry blast flavour only], Anthocyanin [berry blast flavour only]), Flavouring (flavoured options only), Sweetener (Sucralose® [flavoured options only]).
Amount per 4.5g serving:Leucine: 3.0gIsoleucine: 0.75gValine: 0.75gPlease note this nutritional information is taken from the unflavoured version. When choosing a flavoured version it will reduce the BCAA content by approximately 0.75g per serving
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.
- (21 / Jul / 2014)
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.

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
- (15 / Jul / 2014)
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.
- (12 / Jul / 2014)
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!
- (08 / Jul / 2014)
Great product! Hope you don't mind a few lumps as it does not mix VERY well and don't forget to stir every time you get a sip!Goes Well With:Protein

- (02 / Jul / 2014)
excellent product. noticed rapid muscle recovery and no fatigues after workouts and next days
- (18 / Jun / 2014)
Works like how any bcaa will, mixes and dissolves well no lumps. Tropical flavour tastes like diluted fruit juice
- (10 / Jun / 2014)
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 : )Goes Well With:Water
Works for me!
- (06 / Jun / 2014)
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.

I bought Berry flavour and it has great taste. The mixability is ok. This and Glutamin are essential part of my diet. I use them before and during the workout. I absolutely recommend both product.Goes Well With:Glutamin
BCAA 4:1:1 Works
- (27 / May / 2014)
This BCAA really works recovering from my daily training sessions. I can see the differences when I'm not taking it. It's actually the supplement that I can notice the effects the better!
The taste is not good but this can be easily fixed with a MP flavouring. It doesn't really mix perfectly but I take it also with protein and, like that, it mixes better. Goes Well With:MP Flavouring
Great taste, great performance
- (20 / May / 2014)
Having bought this product for the first time, I must say that it's just great!
I'll begin with the flavour. Couldn't have choose a better one. It's perfect on hot days!
Personally I prefer it with cold chilled water and it mixes with no problem at all.
As for the results, I totally believe that it's doing it's work, helping me to maintain my
lean mass, and helping my muscles to regenerate faster with the help of protein intake.
It's totally worth every penny you spend!Goes Well With:Chilled water.
- (08 / May / 2014)
This is a good and worthwhile product and I have noticed a reduction in post work out recovery time since using it, I drink this during my work out and mix it with water and Creatine monohydrate. I chose Berry Blast flavour and I have to be honest and say that it actualy tastes really nice, as others have said it is not the easiest product to mix but when well shaken in a mixer bottle it does mix without problem, doesn't separate and leaves no sediment. This is one of the more beneficial products and I would recommend it to anyone as part of a regular routine.Goes Well With:Water and Creatine monohydrate.
- (07 / May / 2014)
Hey, I have just received my BCCA 4:1:1 in Tropical Flavour and i must say its the best tasting amino drink i have got yet!! i'm glad i got the 1KG bag so will keep me going for a long time :) doesnt mix 100% but either has any BCAA that i have tried yet.
Top Quality product MyProtein
It's a performer!
- (05 / May / 2014)
While not tasting that great...unflavoured - bitter - BCAA is a nice bonus to supplementation.
More stamina, more strenght and more gains when you add it to your workouts.
This product does what it is supposed to.Goes Well With:Creapure, Impact Whey.

Great price, great product not great taste( unflavoured)
Just. Mix with some black current juice for taste.Goes Well With:Juice
- (25 / Apr / 2014)
Good product, improves recovery after workout and mass growth.
Mixes a bit hard, but Blender Bottle with wire blending ball helps a lot.
Goes Well With:Impact Whey Protein, Creatine Monohydrate.
- (23 / Apr / 2014)
Great product with the 4:1:1 ratio.
Taste is slightly weak with the amount of water I like to use (400ml with 2 1/2 scoops) although its probably better tasting weaker than strong. Really good value for miney with the 1kg bags. Perfect to have through-out the dayGoes Well With:a good balanced diet and
- (21 / Apr / 2014)
Definitely helps with recovery, berry blast tastes pretty good, but gets a bit sharp after a while. Mixes really well with water.
- (21 / Apr / 2014)
hi , very nice product .help me to get better
- (15 / Apr / 2014)
Excellent product great taste and makes a great change to plain water
ten star product
- (11 / Apr / 2014)
BCAA 4.1.1 is a fantastic product mixes really well doesn't taste of much which is a good thing as I mix it with chocolate smooth impact whey isolate and creatine.
It works really well for me as I used to suffer quite bad with DOMS for days after a heavy session and now this really take the edge off meaning I can go harder for longer and not worry about being crippled for days after.
Seriously good stuff. Will use it again and again. Goes Well With:Creatine monohydrate and impact whey isolate (chocolate smooth).
- (08 / Apr / 2014)
Good price for what it is.. have tried a number of different BCCA combinations but this has impressed me the most. Can't really comment on taste on flavour as i get unflavoured (which itself isnt bad at all). Good product.
- (08 / Apr / 2014)
Having used 4:1:1 for the first time, the pump and endurance I gain from this is immense. I would recommend 2:1:1 or 4:1:1 from myprotein any day. Berry blast doesn't mix as well and wasn't keen on the taste whereas tropical is lovely, mixing and taste is not an issue. If anyone is looking for BCAA's, I would highly recommend this one.. both my Mrs and I use this.Goes Well With:DY NOX Pump
SCI-MX Muscle Meal Lean Core
- (02 / Apr / 2014)
Ok....so it works, BUT....it smells awful, taste awful and doesn't mix well at all as it just floats on the top of things. You can just about mask it in protain shake. This is a hold-your-nose-and-down-the-hatch supplement!
Goes Well With:Tastebud removal operations
- (17 / Mar / 2014)
I can't comment if this works or not, as I have not had sufficient time to test yet.
However the smell of the product is very bad, taste is not nice, mixed with juicer or protein it's drinkable.
I hope it works, but won't be buying anymore of this item.
- (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.
- (27 / Jan / 2014)
Great product to help with lean muscle growth. RECOMMENDED.
- (14 / Jan / 2014)
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.
- (16 / Dec / 2013)
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!
- (05 / Nov / 2013)
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
- (14 / Oct / 2013)
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.
- (30 / Sep / 2013)
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.
