Why did we design BCAA Plus?
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) make up 35% of lean muscle mass. This makes them an essential element to anyone’s diet, but particularly for those who are training to build lean muscle mass. Although BCAAs are present in foods such as fish, chicken and steak, to get the same optimum dosage as BCAA Plus you would have to consume large quantities, which would not only be extremely costly, but could also compromise your body composition.
How did we design BCAA Plus?
BCAA Plus contains three of the 9 essential amino acids, Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, in a 2:1:1 ratio engineered to support all of your training goals.These are classified as essential amino acids due to the fact that your body is incapable of synthesising them itself and must therefore be consumed via dietary intake. To compliment your body’s daily needs, we have added 1.4 mg of Vitamin B6.
What are the Key Benefits?
BCCAs are unique in the fact that they are metabolised directly in the muscle to kick-start recovery. Other amino acids, such as Lysine, are metabolised via the stomach before reaching the muscle tissue. Vitamin B6 contributes to immune system functions, protein and glycogen metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. BCAA Plus tablets are free from artificial colours and preservatives, yeast, gluten, starch and lactose and also contain no added salt or sugar.
Is this Product for me?
BCAA Plus can be taken by any male or female athlete, bodybuilder or sports enthusiast who are looking to supplement their diet with additional BCAA’s.
When should I consume BCAA Plus?
We recommend consuming 3 tablets, 2 – 4 times daily (before, during or after your workout for optimum benefits). Alternatively, consume anytime throughout the day to supply your muscles with essential amino acids.
Consume 3 tablets (2 – 4 x daily). Consume before, during and after your workouts for maximum benefit.
Warning: Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dose. This product should not be used as a substitute for a varied, balanced diet. Keep in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. Not suitable for vegetarians. Store out of the reach of young children.

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 !!
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
I have purchased this BCAA + in France. I have a brother and we have done experiment if it is actually effective. We have been working out for 5 years now. We were far from supplements. We have taken this for about two weeks. One day, after intensive work out, I took 3pills 4 times while my brother did not take it at all because we doubted that tiredness and fatigue could be reduced. It is hard to know if it is really helping or not. However, the day after showed amazing difference. While I could get up and feel fresh ready to go gym in the morning right away, he did not feel like going because he said his body hurts from yesterday. At that moment, we realized importance of BCAA. This is not advertisement or something. I purely want to compliment myprotein for providing excellent quality of products at affordable price. Since I have been taking BCAA, I am always doing intensive workout even when I have loads of work to do after that! I would say it is a fundamental product for people who want to do intensive workout during their work days. Goes Well With:Water
I used to have trouble pushing myself because i could feel my muscles aching almost instantly and losing motivation 10 minutes into lifting weights. Since i've gotten these, i've only had time for 2 gym sessions and in both i've managed to push myself really really hard, from lifting a weak 10kg on the bicep curl machine to like 30-40, like before if i tried i would just collapse before bringing my wrist any higher than my elbow, i think i can lift it higher at least an inch or two but thats all that matters when you finally get round to pushing those muscles I bought the tablets, only thing i have to say about them is that THEY ARE MASSIVE,
Title says it all, these tablets are incredibly difficult to swallow. They get stuck in your throat they are so big, and the fact that you're advised to take 3 tablets more than once a day is very challenging. They are so hard to swallow and normally i am fine with taking tablets, but not these ones.
Great and easy way to help gain lean muscle with a good diet for such a small price - a must have- Tablets could be smaller though do struggle getting them down sometimes
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
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
Well i noticed a lot more energy recovery But the tablets are insane they are very big i had to break one tablet six times to even swallow it but if you can manage to swallow it whole they are very good delivery was very fast Goes Well With:A big neck
I found these very difficult to swallow because of how large the tablets are. Also, due to the fact that you are recommended to take 3 tablets 2-3 times a day is also difficult due to the size and shape of the tablets.
I go to the gym 6 days a week and do intense weight training... I take two of these in the morning, two pre workout and two post workout ... My muscles feel recovered and energised. They have helps build muscle without gaining weight too! I highly recommend for all active gym goers. Fast delivery and they come in a pot that can easily be carried around in your handbag/gym bag!
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.
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.
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.
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
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 rate these very highly and they're definitely a huge help after leg day. I take these most days in the morning and night especially after training and they really really help in recovery and I notice a huge difference days I take versus days I don't take. My only flaw is that the tablets themselves are quite large but once you get used to taking them they're fine and have no taste (unlike a lot of awful tasting BCAA powders!) A recommended product and one I buy time and time again.
Great product for the serious bodybuilder who want to maintain there physique with a hetic life style. Absorbes fast in to muscles. Pills are big so I broke them up so it was easier to take. Goes Well With:Impact whey isolate.
Good for Long term use, 3 a day over a period of time Hard to swallow if you're not used to bigger pills Goes Well With:My pre workout
Saw gains in performance and recovery. I did find the tablets a little hard to swallow at first but you get used to it and worth the effort!
niticanle difference to muscle growth while maintaining my leanness - looking positive to hitting my goals before target dates! Goes Well With:Total protein
Tried these out few days ago took recommended does on the bottle. The tabs are a little hard to swallow but youll get over it if you want to take these. After about 20 mins felt a surge of energy and went to the gym and compleated a really good workout.after aching from the gym i had a shake. Then made my way home after waking up at 5:30am felt no pain of any of the muscles in my body which was a nice change.Goes Well With:Protein shakes
Myprotein need to change these to capsule form. I halfed these tablets and still struggled to swallow. Ended up giving up trying to take these as there was too much risk. They are ridiculously big. I have no trouble taking tablets but these are more like suppositories.
These are really effective. Without them I feel achy and tired the next day at the gym. With them I can bash it out for a couple of hours and feel ready to go again the next day. Yep, the tablets are really big. I read the reviews saying this before I purchased, and just though "no problem, I'll just chuck them in my pill crusher" well they didn't even fit in the pill crusher and I broke it when I tried to use it to halve them. I have got used to taking them with lots of water though, and dont find this a problem now. Prob best avoided if you hate taking pills though, or find it difficult. Goes Well With:water and a big gob
These BCAA's are great and definitelly do the job! I used to have muscle pains in my back when i first started going to the gym, but these seem to really boost your energy and levels and have gotten rid of that pain, On the bad side the tablets are massive but i myself find them easy enough to swallow, but you need a lot of water!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!
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?
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.
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!
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 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.
BCAA Plus are just a little difficult to swallow as they are fairly big! But are very good if you want a boost before working out!
I recently purchased the BCAA plus tablets to try out and see if it was any benefits from taking these daily. So far I have been using them for 10-12 days and found no real benefits from using these, even though the benefits given on the packaging tells me otherwise. Goes Well With:.
Very will continue to buy productGoes Well With:Water and juice
When the other reviews say these are big, they are pretty big. My advice is - if you have had any issues in the past swallowing tablets then give them a miss. If this has never bothered you then these will be fine. I'm in the latter and they did not bother me but they are pretty big. Don't really taste of anything. Can't review their effectiveness as I have only been taking them 10 days or so. Goes Well With:Water/shake
I bought these when I began to increase the intensity of my workouts, going from cardio & body-weight focused to including more weights etc, which I do 5 days a week. I take these after a workout with a protein shake or high-protein breakfast in the mornings - In the month or so I've been taking them (coupled with the weights workouts) I've noticed much more significant change & body definition. And more importantly I don't suffer the muscle soreness post workout. I can go from one workout to the next without suffering. The one thing everyone says is true - so, if for some reason, you're not accustomed to swallowing chunks of teacher's chalk, I might suggest doing what I will do next time & getting the powder to add to a shake instead!Goes Well With:plenty of something to wash them down.
Great quality product - no awful aftertaste like you often get with the powder. Good for recovery or fasted cardio.Goes Well With:Water
I started taking these last week post workout and I've noticed a big improvement in recovery already. I don't have an issue with taking these tablets either like others seem too, so all in all good stuff so farGoes Well With:Water
Very disappointed with this, the tablets are way to big to consume, especially when you have to consume a high amount on a daily basis. I would recommend anyone to stick to the powder for easier consumption.
I have used BCAA Plus with Impact Protein only a week and I feel and see the difference . I recommend . Must buy!!!Goes Well With:Impact Protein
Not being a huge fan of popping pills I was a little hesitant to try these, especially as I had tried the powder (mix with water) version and didn't really see any results. However I was really pleasantly surprised. I take three before I leave in the morning to cycle to work, three before my training session at lunch and three before I cycle back home. I notice a big difference during my lunch time training session. These really help give me a boost ahead of that work out but most importantly I feel I can go longer and harder while I'm training. For that reason I would recommend these. However they really are a bit of a tough slog to swallow as they are hard chalky tablets. If you can get over that you should really experience the results of taking these. A tip on taking them, I actually prefer to take them with some food,or protein bar, much easier to swallow.Goes Well With:water or snack
Recovery time shortened, easy to swallow with water if used to taking tablets.Goes Well With:Water, thermopures
Hey! I take BCAA before and after workout , and I can see better results! I work out for many years so one point my body didn't react any more , he get used with the protein and I couldn't see the results I want! So after taking BCAA I see improvement on my body. Goes Well With:I am taking only with water, but if I am a bit tired with no energy I am taking it with a cup of green tea( cold no sugar, just a twist of lemon) Good luck to everyone!!!
Recently bought the tablets to help me keep my muscle mass while loose fat ready for summer whilst participating in various circuits. So far have been very effective well worth it for the price too
I love this product. As i workout twice a day, this product is a must for me as it keeps me fresh and helps prevent muscle aches. I take 2 before and after each workout. I must say i feel great each day thanks to this. Plus its cheap so you cant go wrong
