BCAA's (Branched Chain Amino Acids) consist of the three essential amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine in a 2:1:1 ratio. These BCAA's are classed as three of the nine essential amino acids that make up approximately 35% of muscle protein. These amino acids cannot be produced in the body, and therefore must be supplied 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 PLUS also contains 27mg of vitamin B6 which contribute to immune system functioning, protein and glycogen metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
BCAA PLUS is free from artificial colours and preservatives, yeast, gluten, starch and lactose and also contains no added salt or sugar. Generally, BCAA 1500’s are taken by active individuals before and after a workout.
Consume 3 tablets, 2-4 times daily.
Warning: Long term intakes of this amount of vitamin B6 may lead to mild tingling and numbness. Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dose.

been taking these in between meals, before gym and before running to minimise muscle wasting, been having continued improvements so must be working!!
Excellent and well priced product from My protein. As always fast delivery and product is what is described. I would recommend :) No taste to the capsules and easy to swallow.
Definitely reduce recovery times; I am now able to lift six to seven times a week on a three day split workout with little ache or fatigue. Sizeable tablets however I do not find it an issue to swallow them in one go. Make sure you drink plenty of water after taking as they can feel a little stuck.Goes Well With:impact whey, thermopure
Good value and noticed quicker recovery times. Big tablets, might be hard to swallow for some but worth it. More convenient than mixing powders. As ever very quick delivery. Recommended.
Good ratio of BCAA's, the tablet might be a bit too large to swallow for a few people, but it definitely works! I take it during workouts and it does work!
I feel that these are very could tablets to take when trying to maintain a good healthy diet and trying to lose weight but trying to keep your gains at the same time aswelll as building on them gains. I have taken them for a month now, despite them being quiet hard to swallow I have lost nearly a stone in body weight and still gained in muscle size. I would recommoned these to anyone that its trying to gain size and lose body fat. Goes Well With:water
I don't understand why people say they're so hard to swallow they aren't as big as anticipated just have a large drink of water to help. Haven't tasted it I just wash it down take the recommended dosage and I can tell they are definitely helping me gain some size and strength compared to when I never used to take them. Overall very happy cheap and effective Goes Well With:Water!
Good quality product and great value for money. Does exactly what it says if you don't believe it try them, you will see the benefits. HOWEVER, they are way to BIG I am almost choking in an attempt to swallow them. Some people may not have much of a problem swallowing them. MYPROTEIN should really look in to making the tablets smaller, or at least coating them so they are easier to swallow. Find them so hard to swallow that the benefits don't even make them worth it.Goes Well With:must take with lots of water otherwise possibility of death by choking
The pill sizes are quite big its hard to properly swallow because you have that fear that t will get stuck in your throat and you will choke on them. need to make them smaller.
Very effective, they are hard to swallow but once you do they work effectivelyGoes Well With:Any liquid which helps you swallow them
I spoke to a MyProtein advisor whilst looking online and was recommended the BCAA. It helps with recovery and apparently helps guide more protein to the muscles. I sometimes take extra after tougher workouts and when I can really feel it the next day. I like to think my BCAAs are really helping out and value the advice given to me.
Great product, really helps my recovery and giving me some extra gains.
Easy to carry around. If you don't like the taste of your usual BCAA powder, then this is worth the extra cost. A bit hard to swallow, but easily resolved by breaking each tablet by hand before downing it. Goes Well With:Water
Great product!! Used these for three weeks whilst trimming down and this product has helped me maintain my size whilst improving my strength along the way. Swallowing them is like swallowing a subway sandwich whole but once you get used to it, they are fine. Would reccommend to anybody!Goes Well With:3 before training and 3 after. You will notice the difference
Great product must buy helps with recovery and size of muscle
Good for recovery, can hit the gym harder and more often with these as a staple in your routine.
I take three of these before a workout and three after a workout. I used to really suffer with muscle aches in the days following a workout and I used to struggle to find energy for Cardio exercises. Since using BCAAs I have found that I can do double the cardio I used to without losing motivation and I have almost no muscle aches. I push myself at the gym four times a week and this week I cycled for three hours and I have felt absolutely no muscle aches. The only downside to these tablets is I hate the taste and with them being so big it is quite difficult to avoid tasting them when taking. I am however getting used to them now and am finding it easier to take them. They are definitely worth it for the benefits !!
This product was listed as vegetarian and now I've come to reorder (after using it for a year or so) it is not. Not sure why this is but wouold like to know. I notice the packaging has changed so has the product (for better or worse?) There are no details saying if this is the case?
I have been taking BCAA FOR ABOUT 2 months now, I take them everyday and on training days I up the dose. As the body does not produce BCAA i think it is ESSENTIAL to supplement them especially when resistance training, I up the weight I can lift every week, I take these as well as other supplements and when I used to train 3 years ago i didn't use anything but it took me longer to up how much I could lift so these defiantly help! Goes Well With:Water
Hard to tell if they work as my protein contains a lot of bcaa anyway. Either way i will continue to use them and do another review long term. Pills are pretty big but don't leave a nasty after taste so that's good.Goes Well With:Good diet
These seem like a good product, although they are massive! Very hard to swallow, but I don't take them every day so I can handle that!
Brilliant product, exactly what i needed and for a great price. Great company with great products. I was chuffed that i got the BCAA's for half price which helps when alot of supplements are so expensiveGoes Well With:Before and after training
I'm sorry to say that these tablets are just too big, they are much bigger than say the alpha men or ZMA, and i choked on the first one, so i bit the second one in half, and it still got stuck in my throat and was very painful. I'm not a drama queen and rarely write reviews, however if you really need your BCAA supps then i would go for the powder. ps the one tablet i did swallow i felt it slowly and painfully travel down my oesophagus
Fast delivery. Does what it says on the bottle. Worth the money and ill be getting more stuff from them too
As numerous other people have stated, these tablets are huge! Fine if you're OK with swallowing big pills, but a bit of an issue for people who struggle. Thankfully, this isn't much of a problem for me. They really seem to be doing the job though. I've lost almost 7kg in bodyweight since I began my 'cut' and my strength has been increasing and my amount of muscle mass definitely hasn't gone down. So basically they're doing what they're meant to!
Well does exactly what it says.Perfect for lean mass and nice pre and post workout!
Absolutely love these. I've only been taking them a short while but can see the difference in recovery time. Even after a heavy session, I can hardly feel any soreness the next day. Definitely worth the money. The only downside is the size of the capsule which is quite big and some people may find it difficult to swallow.
They work ... But..... The tablets are massive and even when you break them in half the coating is poor and it gets stuck in your throat. I can swallow pills but I got half a tablet stuck in my throat and was sick and could not breath. Horrible experience , get the powder trust me these pills are a nightmareGoes Well With:Nothing
I bought these tablets to enhance my gym performance. However after a few days of using them I noticed that my sweat started to smell really bad!! It was crazy that tablets like this can do that. I've stopped using them now and my sweat has gone back to normal. I haven't read about sweat smelling in any of the other reviews. But this is what happened to me.
good for building and maintaining muscle mass size, only fault to this product along with the EAA is that they are too big and so hard to swallow, almost choke every time i take it even when i break them up, if a coating was added maybe it will make it easier to swallow?Goes Well With:lots of water
I always thought these were a "placebo effect" so never bothered to get any, When the opportunity came up to get some for free with the promotion I thought "Why not, I'll give them a go" and I have to say, I was wrong. They work great, I don't suffer anywhere near as much during the muscle repair stages and I'm currently running a much more intense training session. These are definitely going to be a regular part of my Myprotein order!Goes Well With:Water
These were a free gift with a purchase, so had no real expectations, so was surprised by the positive results I felt with these. Big tablets though, I found them quite hard to swallow.
I purchased these tablets to help with muscle soreness after a workout (mostly after leg day) I feel like the recovery time has been cut in half, Now these tablets are quite chunky (weighing a gram each) but the benefits outweigh the size of the tablet I took 5 tablets, with creatine, before Working out and not only was my DOMS less intense but my workout quality improved, my muscle felt like they could handle more. Goes Well With:Creatine
I train fasted, 3tabs before and I'm good to go. Size of the tablets is not a problem at all.
First time trying these they do seem to work, however the pills are large and unpleasant to swallow Goes Well With:I take them with protein shake
Early days to review the effectiveness of these yet as I've only had them a week. However, my main issue with these tablets is that they are way too big. Even after breaking them in half they are hard to swallow. Smaller, easy to swallow tablets would be much better even if that means having to take more of them.
Never used these before but will definitely use them again. Noticed a difference straight away. Saw gains in muscle size and strength plus recovery time shortened. Would certainly recommend !!!
Taste leaves much to be desired, but very effective. Very good when on a cutting phase to cut down on catabolising. Bought multiple times.Goes Well With:Water
Got some to save carting around powder when on the go. These are big, and serving size is 3 of them. As a guide they're about 3 times bigger that Centrum Men tablets - so if you struggle with those, these aren't for you. It also does away with the taste issues of unflavoured BCAA. So if you are put off by the taste of BCAA, but are ok swallowing big tablets, then these are perfect for you. Just make sure you drink before taking, and after each one. I'd recommend making sure that you have a full glass of water/juice to help wash them down. Goes Well With:Lots of water/juice
They're good but I was completely put off taking them because they're massive and so awkwardly shaped! When I do manage to swallow them (after nearly vomiting) they sit really awkwardly in the stomach.
the pills are way to big, hard to swallow. Recovery time way better
After my first ever use of BCAA I have noticed a difference in my workout routine. It gave me energy boost and made me go to absolute limits. Definitely worth a try for better results :)
Says what's on the pot and best value around and has been for some time.
If you want gains ... take this with your normal protein shakes, i take one shake in the morning and one after workout and maybe one at midday if feeling tired ... one pill plus protein shake ... gibe it a month and train hard as well You will see gains like never before .. guaranteed x Goes Well With:Protein Shake
I got these a week or so ago and the first thing I noticed was that they are quite a large tablet, and are at first, a little hard to swallow. After the first few though you get used to it and with a bit of water they go down well. Overall a good product and hopefully the results will start coming through thick and fast! Goes Well With:Water/shake
These tablets are huge. I have halved them and they still catch the back of my throat on the way down. Let's hope the results are worth it as many suggest.
The pills seems good and have given me a bit of a lift. Becasue of personal circs, I've not been training as much as usual. Will see how good they are once back in full training
See my previous review, good product and effective - I'm over 40 and its giving me the support I need to keep up with the 20 year olds!
When I first tried these I was unsure if I was still getting the same results. At 44 I've returned to weight training after about 8 years off. 4 Tabs and 1 Tribulus 15 minutes before training gives a buzz and pump I remember.
Starting using this a few weeks ago I've noticed a significant difference in my recovery time and I've lost a decent amount of my beer belly which i was struggling to shift - would buy again.
