BCAA's (Branched Chain Amino Acids) consist of the three amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. BCAA's cannot be produced in the body and must be supplied through the diet. BCAA's have been shown to help with protein synthesis, helping your body cope with the stress of exercise.
BCAA's are required to maintain lean tissue and studies have shown they preserve your stores of glycogen (a stored form of carbohydrate that can be converted to energy). BCAA's also prevent catabolism during training and therefore can improve lean growth.
BCAA's are not like other amino acids as they are not metabolised in the stomach, and are instead metabolised directly in the muscle. This unique quality means that they build lean tissue and stop catabolism.
We recommend consuming 3-5 Tablets 2-4 times daily for optimal results.

BCAA Plus is easy to swallow and tastes OK.
rj - (13 / May / 2013)
BCAA Plus is a good product, but is not easy to swallow.
Johnny - (13 / May / 2013)
I really like BCAA Plus. It mixes well and tastes nice. I'm still waiting to see some development though!Goes Well With:Full fat milk
JT - (13 / May / 2013)
BCAA Plus is awesome for before and after a workout to get those extra gains!Goes Well With:Impact Whey Protein, Creatine.
looper - (10 / May / 2013)
BCAA Plus is a very good product and one of the the best if not the best BCAA around. It helps to prevent muscle tissue breakdown and eliminates post workout muscle pain or speeds up recovery. This is a five star product!
jj - (10 / May / 2013)
Ive been taking bcaa for quite sometime now and the result is superb no aches and pains. The tablet is a bit big to swallow but that doesn't worry me as long as the result is there. Highly recommended to those who want more gains.Goes Well With:hurricane xs, recovery xs, alpha men
Zhizz - (09 / May / 2013)
Great product, which does precisely what is says it does. I trained my ass off the first day I started using these, and was pleasantly surprised at the reduction of gym-burn the next day.
As many have said, they can be a little difficult to swallow, but worst case scenario is that you have to drink extra water to get them down... and more water is never a bad thing.
I'm popping a couple of these between exercises to stop catabolism; in concert with beta alanine and creatine in a strong cup of black coffee, pre-workout, it seems to be working wonders.
Finally, I've heard folks complain about the taste of this product. I had to crunch one down and it really wasn't that bad, so I think that a powder form of these would be fine.Goes Well With:Water
Antoni - (08 / May / 2013)
BCAA Plus offers the best quality / price ratio in the BCAA tablets and they are
easy to swallow. This is the best product if you are unable to consume the BCCA powders, which have a special taste.Goes Well With:Whey, L glutamine, Waxy Maize
Not hard to swallow
halesjim - (07 / May / 2013)
BCAA Plus is easy to use, swallowed one at a time. They're not the smallest tablet but are easy to get down with a little bit of water. The taste isn't an issue as they go straight down. I might try the powder form next time but these are worth buying if you feel BCAA supplements are necessary. I will buy them again.
Liam O71 - (02 / May / 2013)
BCAA Plus gives you a great boost before and during workouts. The pills are quite large though.
Raf - (29 / Apr / 2013)
The BCAA Plus tablets are a bit big and you need to take 3-5 per serving, so that's a bit of a disadvantage. Other than that, it's a good product Goes Well With:whey protein
honythepony - (24 / Apr / 2013)
BCAA Plus works very well, find I have more energy in the mornings for the gym and it works very effectively with the diet I am on at the moment; the intermittent fasting diet. Ensures I am burning fat in the mornings and not my muscle. Very happy.
Just chew them!
Disco_Tone - (18 / Apr / 2013)
You'll be lucky too swallow these without choking! I just chew them up and neck a drink. Taste obviously is great, but doesnt make me gag or anything. Prefer doing this to the taste of the MP BCAA powder (berry blast is it? - definitely an acquired tast).
Helped with DOMS, can't tell how much it is (or isn't) contributing to muscle growth, as I've leaned up quite a bit recently so have multiple factors to consider.
Goes Well With:Chew, and then with any cold drink.
Dougal - (16 / Apr / 2013)
I have only just started taking these BCAA Plus before, during and after my workouts and will say I don't have any after soreness. What I don't like about them is they are very hard to swallow and seem to stick on the back of my throat, even with fluid, as they don't have a coating which allows them to slip down more easily. Goes Well With:No-X and Cellmass
Bandrews - (11 / Apr / 2013)
BCAA Plus contains high dosages of the 3 main amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine in each tablet. The tablets aren't too big, so swallowing them is easier compared to other brands. These are great value for money and very effective for recovery!
Phil - (09 / Apr / 2013)
I've previously used BCAA powder with water/juice however, taking in tablet form is much easier. I've read recently the suggestion to take BCAA tabs during training, I take 4-6 during my session to promote protein synthesis which I feel gets me through the harder sessions.
Effective, but huge
Greenroomman - (03 / Apr / 2013)
BCAA Plus is an effective supplement. This really helps with recovery process. My only gripe is that they are huge tabs. I might try powder BCAAs in the future.Goes Well With:Whey protein
Ian P - (02 / Apr / 2013)
BCAAs are just an essential supplement for any training program. I take them before and after workouts and sometimes in the morning on/after heavy training days. It lets your muscles recover and repair, and keeps catabolism at bay - these ones do the job although it gets expensive if you take the full dose all the time and a lot of taking pills. They go down fine and that's all that matters.Goes Well With:protein and carbs, creatine
KG33zY - (02 / Apr / 2013)
I've always been unsure of these BCAA Plus but they truly made a difference for me. I'm a small frame and I've always had problems trying to gain lean mass and I feel these are helping me on my way! This deserves 5 stars.
gdmm - (02 / Apr / 2013)
I got a pack of BCAA Plus and I have to say, I was quite surprised at how noticeable the impact which was almost immediate. I found it took me a lot longer to become fatigued and soreness was virtually non existent the following day. I will probably look to buy the powder next time, with cost being my motivation. You can take these up to six times a day which could potentially leave you having to replace the bottle every fortnight. But I would thoroughly recommend taking BCAA as a supplement in some guise, I do find it to be hugely effective. Goes Well With:Whey protein
Jay - (02 / Apr / 2013)
I've just recently starting taking the gym more seriously, and everywhere I checked people say buy BCAAs.
So I took their advice and bought BCAA Plus, I've used it on my workout days and it's been great. It makes me work harder and I don't feel as sore the next day, I know it will help me recover and get stronger.
I would recommend it as it's great value for money.
Marion - (02 / Apr / 2013)
BCAA Plus is easy to swallow with no after taste!
Kavs - (01 / Apr / 2013)
BCAAs should be one of the recovery supplements of choice in everyone's supplement stash, since using BCAA+ post-workout my muscle soreness the next day is almost non-existent, with no stiffness or inflammation. MyProtein tabs are just the right size to swallow and great value for money. They are a must for anyone who finds the taste of normal BCAA powder hard to handle. They are very convenient on-the-go.Goes Well With:Protein, any pre and post workout supplement.
Amcg90 - (01 / Apr / 2013)
BCAA Plus is so far, so good! I've been taking them for a few weeks so I can't fully comment on how well they work. The only downside is sometimes they are difficult to swallow and dissolve quite quickly.Goes Well With:CLA, L-Carnitine and Omega 3
Keith - (01 / Apr / 2013)
I have only really started taking BCAA Plus so can't really comment on if they work or not, but I have been taking this and it does a great job when your cutting. I will write a review again after being on these for a few months.
Gavlar - (01 / Apr / 2013)
Great product, good price and quick delivery. Found that while taking BCAA's it reduces soreness during a weight training cycle.Goes Well With:Protein and L-Glutamine
Mike - (01 / Apr / 2013)
So far, so good!Goes Well With:everything
Seb - (01 / Apr / 2013)
Good product, no taste, not so big tablets, overall 4/5.
Halve Recovery Time
Jay - (01 / Apr / 2013)
If you hate the taste of most protein shakes/bars, you'll love BCAA Plus. I take 5 capsules before workouts and 5 capsules after. It hasn't impacted my performance, but it's great for reducing recovering time, which means a better workout the next time. I do find the capsules a little big to swallow, but they're easy to break in half with your fingers. Once again, another great product from MyProtein at an affordable price. I would recommend this to anyone looking to improve muscle recovery, add more protein to their diet (without the calories) or on fasted training programmes such as Lean Gains.
Matt - (01 / Apr / 2013)
The BCAA Plus is an extremely good product. After taking for only 2 days, I noticed a significant fall in recovery time. Intensity of sessions remained the same however, subsequent aching was massively reduced. The tablets are large but easy enough to take with sufficient water. Would highly recommend! Goes Well With:Instant oats.
GinjaNinja - (01 / Apr / 2013)
I've noticed that after taking BCAA Plus as described, I'm not aching as much the day after a session and feel ready for another day. Even after taking the Whey Protein, I still feel the odd twinge, so I'm assuming that these have helped. The longer I take them, the more I hope to see the benefits. As most will agree you need your fair share of BCAA's, this product is as good as any on the market.
nubin1 - (01 / Apr / 2013)
BCAA Plus is a great product. I generally had 3 tablets, morning and night, then pre and post-workout. I didn't have it on days off.
If you struggle swallowing tablets, you may struggle swallowing these as the tablets are pretty big. I found it easier swallowing with milk or a protein shake.
awesome value product
sly - (26 / Mar / 2013)
I take BCAA Plus with every meal and they have helped me add a lot of lean muscle. Would tell anyone to try for a month to see the difference, you will be hooked! Easy to swallow and to carry around. These tablets are a must.
Retain your muscle
Jb - (26 / Mar / 2013)
I had bowel surgery about a year ago and mixed with a naturally high metabolism, I have trouble keeping nutrients and building muscle. I've started taking BCAA Plus daily for a week and the results are fantastic. That swell feeling you get from the gym continues into the next day and combined with a high protein intake, I've seen results in the last week that I haven't seen in 5 months training. Great job.
aidan - (25 / Mar / 2013)
These are brilliant started seing slight gains within a week taken with protein before and after workout would recommend these, are a bit hard to swallow at times though! Goes Well With:I stack it with creatine and drink with a protein shake
So far so good
Kyle - (18 / Mar / 2013)
I was recommended BCAA Plus by a friend who I have been talking to about excessive exercise. Initially I looked at the packet and saw the dosage. 3-5 tablets 2-4 times a day! I started with 2 tablets 3 times a day on recovery days and 3 x 3 on exercise days. I have definitely seen an improvement in recovery times. I'm still a little sore but I am guessing I need to up the dosage. I am a bit of a sceptic when it comes to these type of things, and usually put the effects down to psychology, but I have to say they definitely improved muscle soreness the next day and especially the 2nd day. They're well worth a go for anyone who is looking to do 'excessive' amounts of exercise. Goes Well With:Water
Mike - (18 / Mar / 2013)
Really good recovery time. Worth the cash.
Ollie Bright - (08 / Mar / 2013)
First time using this product and these tablets are amazing, my muscle soreness goes within one recovery day, so great product to use if you are proper hard on your workouts! Goes Well With:Any drink
Noticed the difference
Jamesw - (06 / Mar / 2013)
I can tell the difference between taking these BCAA Plus and not. I was taking the below (goes well with section) without these and recovery time was dramatically decreased when I started to take these as well as the below. It works for me!Goes Well With:CLA, Creapure, Impact Whey
Dan - (10 / Feb / 2013)
In taking the BCAA Plus to helps me train 5 days a week at full throttle. Before taking these I use to get to mid week with aches and pains, not being able to train as hard or long. I recommend these to anyone, they are large and do not taste too great, but the taste doesn't linger.
Paul Shepherd - (02 / Dec / 2012)
"What a great product! Was introduced to another brand of BCAA's a couple of months ago and although it said on the container for best results take 2 caps 30 mins before training then another 2 half way through training, I was told to take 3 instead, also to take another 3 before bed and another 3 on wake in the morning. It worked well. As I get all my other products from MP, I decided to give these BCAA+ a go. I'm taking more than the other brand, as I am going the max.. 5 caps 4 times a day on training days and 5 caps twice a day on non-training days. I find I am training harder for longer and I am suffering much less soreness on recovery now. Awesome product, just wished they were stronger so I didn't need to take so many caps."
Dan Gee - (11 / Oct / 2012)
First time taking BCAA's so was quite sceptical on the results. Wasn't sure if it was going to be a placebo after hearing good things. Been taking for a week or so now and have noticed the difference in muscle soreness after workouts. What used to take me 3 days for regeneration now seems to take effect after just one for a pain free workout. Recommended.
William Coleclough - (26 / Aug / 2012)
"Great product. I have never used BCAA tablets before but when taking these I have noticed that my muscle soreness is reduced loads! I am normally sore for days after training and my recovery time is awful. But I have only been using BCAA+ for a week but I have noticed that my muscles recover so much quicker when taken first thing in the morning, before a workout, after a workout and before bed."
Jean-Pierre Bolet - (23 / Aug / 2012)
"2 points about this product. #1. BCAA Plus (and BCAA powder) gives me the absolute best gains from any supplement I have ever taken, full stop. I have reliably achieved more lean muscle gain from this than whey protein, glutamine, creatine etc. However ... #2. It also reliably gives me acute joint pain in the hands, elbows, shoulders and knees. if I stop taking it then the pain subsides in a week or so. Start taking it again, joint pain starts again. Due to the gains i would love to find a way to keep taking this, but I'm also a guitar player, and the joint pain almost immobilises my fingers; not good. Anyone else experience this/have a workaround so that I can keep using it without the pain? Bottom line, if you don't have the same problem then it may well do the trick for you. Many thanks."
Steven Gambardella - (15 / Aug / 2012)
"I noticed a difference: DOMS were not so bad, though I'm not sure if they gave me more power. You need to take a lot - I took 12+ on gym days and 6 on off days. They are very cheap and each tab is a full 1g so very good value! They're quite big but you just need to master the "chin tuck" swallow (google it), I can neck 2 at a time. "
Jeffers - (03 / Jul / 2012)
I have been taking these for a month now and have been making good gains in that time. I have noticed big improvements in recovery times and DOMS is no longer a problem even after the most intense sessions. The best thing i can say is i will be ordering more.
Tom Simmons - (30 / Apr / 2012)
Fantastic product! helps you put on the muscle without the fat! def buy again/recommend!
benjy - (30 / Apr / 2012)
"Been using this product for a couple of months now and i can not stress enough how fantastic this product is. I am a Health and fitness consultant in the fitness industry and im constantly told about the latest and greatest new crazes in sports supplements. For me BCAA+ is an awesome product, it has helped me to train harder for longer, add lean muscle mass and DOM's are practicully a thing of the past. I suggest taking two tabs before training, two during training and then two after. i would definately reccomend this product to anyone who feels they struggle to get 110% out of their strength or volume weight sessions."
Max888 - (13 / Apr / 2012)
"Been on these for about 2 weeks, and so far gains have been great!! (taking 3 each time- in morning/ pre+post workout/ bedtime= 12 caps daily - and taking 9 caps spread out on non-training days). I think a lot of gains has to do with the fact I am chugging a lot of protein too, but these have improved lean gains, and recovery also. MAKE SURE you buy the 270 tab bottle, as you will get through them fast!! -overall much more ingredients per cap than other BCAA companies (ie Reflex/ Maximuscle/ etc), so great value for money too!!!!"
Mark Fryer - (28 / Mar / 2012)
Brilliant product! been taking an 8g dosage with my pre-workout shake and I have noticed major differences in performance during my workouts. This has also helped me get some pretty amazing gains. I would recommend this product to anyone who is serious about building (and maintaining) muscle mass.
