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 PLUS’s are taken by active individuals before and after a workout.

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
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.
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!
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!! 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.
Struggle to drink liquid bcaas so these are perfect.
Easy to swallow with plenty of water, used most of the pot during an exercise break instead of during workout so didn't feel the full benefits of this. However was effective when I took a high dosage on a work out day Goes Well With:Water
Great product but tablets are too big and difficult to swallow Goes Well With:Creatine
These are amazing!!! Highly recommend. You can train as hard as you like, and you experience minimal DOMS in the following days. Allows me to train the same muscle group as often as I please.
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
So I'm an individual that LOVES going hard at the gym and I go everyday(morning) consecutively for 5/6 days in a week and I found myself feeling EXTREMELY fatigued and sleepy a few hours after my workouts and sometimes not having the desire to go workout when I wake up in the morning due to DOMS or tiredness. But ever since I've started taking these for two weeks I'm no longer in fear of lifting heavy to avoid severe DOMS because I recover pretty fast and I no longer get as fatigue as before after my workouts; also I wake up feeling better too. The pill isn't as big as some describe it to be just gulp it down with lots of water and it'll be fine, I normally take two before and after my workouts and it does the trick. I HIGHLY recommend these if you experience what I described earlier. Also, you know a BCAA is good if you don't suffer from the normal leg day DOMS, with these I no longer have to wait 5 days until I can start to do cardio again but I can even do light cardio the day after leg day and sometimes even sprints. As I am cutting at the moment I see that they've helped with retaining my muscle. Goes Well With:Water.
Really easy to take down despite being quite a bulky tablet, no chemical / chalky taste and incredible value for money. MyProtein keeps me coming back!Goes Well With:Impact Whey Protein Creatine Monohydrate
This is a brilliant product and I will be buying this again
Very happy using this product along side my other vitamins in my prep for the 2016 RIBBF Spring Classic. Goes Well With:L leucine
I've recently started training intensely every day again and although i've only been using this product recently i feel it's definatley had some beneficial impacts! At first i was abit skeptical but when i think about it now i have to say i think my core strength has really improved and also the time in which i recover is quite rapid which is most certainly the help of the proteins being absorbed properly into my body with these little helpers with some Impact Whey protein after a workout! I would also strongly suggest a balanced healthy diet to maximise the effects and speed of recovery which also assists. I will say they are rather large so unless your used to swallowing tablets i suggest a big gulp of water! Certainly don't want one of these stuck in your throat. Great Value for money! Goes Well With:Water / Protien Shake
I love this product, i am still in early days but i have noticed a massive difference! I will be purchasing again!
Really good product to help meet your protein goals and help with pre workout needsGoes Well With:Any protein you want to take during a workout
I have only been taking it for two weeks but i can already see and feel a difference in my workout.Goes Well With:They can be crushed and mixed with fruit juice. I recommend doing this.
These BCAA PLUS are really affective for a new beginner to the experienced person in the gym I highly recommend themGoes Well With:Protein shakes
Really noticed a difference taking these, spot on. Only negative is the size of the pill, it's too big. If you could make them smaller that would be great.Goes Well With:Whey protein isolate
This product is excellent does the job it's needed!
This was the first time I have used bcaa's. The tablets are quite big so not the easiest to swallow but I think it's worth it to help with recovery after my workouts. Would recommend using consistently to feel more benefit from using.
Just started using BCAA+ and it is definitely hitting the spot. Gotta say I don't take the recommended 4 times a day but am still seeing great results. I'm usually good with pill size but yeah because of its texture, the pill gets stuck due to size. I recommend crunching it up with a protein shake or just getting the bcaa powder. I think my next purchase will be the powder not the pills.Goes Well With:protein shake
