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.
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!
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.
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 gains when used alongside whey protein. Great tasting and mixes well
Great taste and fantastic product. Can't recommend enough.
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
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 : )Goes Well With:Water
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.
Been taking this product for around a week now and must say, Ive grown to love the taste. I take this in a morning with my breakfast as well as having it as a pre/during workout drink with a scoop of tropical creapure. It mixes well in a 'My Protein' shaker and is actually very refreshing. As for results, Ive not been taking this for long so haven't noticed any change although, I don't believe any results can really be put down to the use of a single supplement anyway. For the price of a 2kg bag and the amount of servings you get, the cost is negligible, theres no reason not to give this a go. Goes Well With:Tropical Creapure, water.
Great product but recently tried another flavour (lemon & lime) and found it too sweet and unpalatable.
Mixes well and cheap enough to mix in with my drink that I have thoughtout the day to keep my aminos up
used during my cut, 5g whilst doing morning cardio, then 5g inbertween meals. 10-15g during workout. consumed when ever there is no food in your system, helps promote muscle synthesis and prevents muscle wastage. noticeable more energy in my workouts, stomach wasn't growling halfway through work out. Draw backs -first week when consuming, lips dried out a lot, purely down to the bcaas, after a few weeks completely fine. -dependent on food intake during the day, sometimes feel bloated when consuming BCAA's during my work out Overall great product and should be a staple in anyones plan. Food is the most important then BCAA's! Goes Well With:water, juice
This review isn't a reflection of MyProtein at all - I love a lot of their products and delivery is always quick and prices reasonable. However the taste of this in the summer berry flavour is grim! It does mix well with water but i honestly nearly made me sick the taste was so vile - very synthetic and chemically. I didn't try it with juice, so that may make it better, and also I can't comment in its effectiveness because I only used it once and couldn't face using it again! Goes Well With:definitely not water!
Haven't been on this combination that long but I have already noticed an improvement in recovery and I seem able to work with greater intensity. Goes Well With:Water, yoghurt
Great all rounder BCAA, use it during my workout to help with endurance
Bought this as it was a great offer for BCAA. Love the taste got the tropical punch. Mixes really well with water. I use this during my workout. Only thing that I was very unhappy with was that it had no scoop. Where is my scoop myprotein? :( Goes Well With:Really cold water.
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. Goes Well With:Impact whey and 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.
It tastes just like fruit juice, mixes well with a shaker bottle and has helped me squeeze more reps per set out of my workout after using for a few weeks. Goes Well With:Preworkout beforehand, bcaa during workout and a post workout after.
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. Goes Well With:Creatine Gluconate
i use this product pre/post workout and now i have to say its a good supplement.improved recovery and strength. this supplement improves mental clarity,trust me!mixes very well and taste is also great.i recommend itGoes Well With:water
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.Goes Well With:Water
The BCAA is perfect quality. Since I start taking my supplements I gained 2kg. I am writing a review for all my protein products I purchase til now. 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.
I use this during my workouts in the gym or just before a run and I noticeably perform better with it!!!!! Goes Well With:Water, just water, water is all you need!
Mixes very well. The taste is also very good. great product! good to sip during workouts or cardio! Goes Well With:Water or H20! wait hold on that's the same thing!
I think It is a good and quality product for the muscle developing. I recommend it everyone.
It is a very effective and quality product. I just recommend it to everyone.
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. Goes Well With:Water or any flavoured drink.
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.Goes Well With:MyProtein Whey and Creatine
1. Improved recovery, barely feel sore the next day 2. Mixes great, I add creatine to it and gulp it down with no lumps 3. Tastes decent, bit artificial but its not too bad Got the 1kg pouch On sake so I'm BUZZING!Goes Well With:CREATINE, PROTEIN
Unflavoured amino acids are never delicious 😊 but the quality and effectiveness of this product is outstanding ! The price is very good regarding to its performance.Goes Well With:Water 😉 and malto post workout
Great product, more of a taste review as I'm sure majority of people buying will know about BCAA's and the effects that it has. Really good taste, tastes like a tropical squash and mixes really well after shaking and letting stand for a few minsGoes Well With:Cold water
Good solid product but it tastes like crushed up paracetamol mine was the in flavoured don't go there guys
The best BCAA I ever use. The taste (berry blast) is so good. try this
If you workout a lot you need this in your stack
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!Goes Well With:E40 cream
Taste is weak, wish it was stronger. Mixes well.
Excellent taste,excellent mixability!!...highly recommend this product
mixes easily and starting to have effect after less than a week, excellent product
The bcaa's didn't mix at all with my fruit drink , they just stuck to the glass. So I drank the drink and the powder was still in the glass. Mixes ok in protein shake but the description decribes this as a fruit drinkGoes Well With:Oats and whey
started using this during workouts alone and felt I could push on more and have more energy throughout my workouts. I started drinking it in the day too and it has helped recover muscles after my workouts and leaving me feeling more energetic, also helps minimise aching the day after! Especially on a leg day! Goes Well With:Water
Effective product, does not mix well if at all in water, however have noticed definite improvements in muscle recovery and general drive/energy.Goes Well With:Glutamine
this is the first time i tried BCAA.. it is very effective and different from the usual whey protein. moreover, i choose the berry blast flavour which is amazing!! try it and you will love it.Goes Well With:fruit juices
Pretty good product, but the taste is quite bad and strong so should be mixed with something that can mask the taste such as orange juice.
The powder mixes well, far better than other brands I have tried. I have the berry blast flavour and it tastes good leaving no strange after taste which I have experienced with other brands. Goes Well With:Whey protein
I have tried a few different ways of taking BCAA's and this has been by far the easiest. Easy mix, tropical tast just makes it taste like a glass of squash, and since taking this alongside a few of my other myprotein supps I have cetainly noticed an improvement in visiable gains.Goes Well With:Impact whey Isolate Plus (not mixed together)
can i take mass gainer of my protein after taking bcaa 4:1:1 ask me as soon as possible?
I don't have too much time from when i get this product but i feel the results on training from the begining. It's very good to recover after an intense training, helps me to exceed in armwrestling. In the future i'll be interested to buy myprotein suppliments for sure! The quality of product is good and about mixability i give only 4 stars because the pouder it's too soft and remains some bubbles after mixing :). Thanks!
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.
