Product Overview

Product Overview

What are Branch Chain Amino Acids?

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) contain a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. These amino acids are considered to be essential amino acids that cannot be synthesised by the body, so must be consumed from dietary sources.

What are the Benefits of BCAA's?

During exercise BCAA become more important whereby dietary intakes can often not meet the body's needs. Therefore with BCAA powder you can reach optimum levels of BCAAs in a quick and easy way.

BCAAs come in two fantastic new flavours; Berry blast and tropical storm. They are easily mix and can be consumed almost instantaneously.

BCAAs can be consumed throughout the day for or before, during and after workouts. You can increase the effectiveness of BCAAs by consuming 10mg of Vitamin B6 with every 10g of BCAA.

Who are Branch Chain Amino Acids Suitable for?

BCAA’s are generally consumed by active individuals and are suitable for anyone taking part in intense training or exercise, looking to enhance muscle recovery. They are also suitable for anyone looking to increase lean mass with reducing body fat levels.

How to take BCAA's?

5 grams of BCAA's can be consumed 2-4 times daily. BCAA's can be consumed by mizing with water, or for best results add 2 MP small scoops to your favourite fruit juice or pre/post workout shake.

Key Benefits

  • 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine

does not mix

I can only review the unflavoured. I have tried all the ways previous reviews have suggested to mix and I have found that the only way to mix my batch is with Ribena (name brand) about 100-150ml in order for it to dissolve. I have tried cheaper branded juice flavours but found I need approx 1000ml for it to semi dissolve.This might have something to do with the sugar content why it does or does not dissolve. I found if I stir it shake it or blend it I get a "Beer Head" unless mixed as above. If put in a protein drink it is gritty but is still drinkable. Taste wise it is foul but we don’t buy sup’s for taste. Results wise I certainly feel more energised pre workout and not stiff or sore the following day or two even if maxing out. Not certain I would by this again, but would consider the flavoured version to see if similar mixing results.

WOW!!! Recovery times were halved. Just great benefits, now only if the taste can be improved, the unflavoured is horrendous.

BCAA

Noticed a great deal of gains from using BCAA, however taste wise it is not the greatest thing in the world but saying this so fair I have only tried the unflavoured one so I am only able to comment on that one, even though the taste may not be so great the benefits of the BCAA far out way the cons, personal I think they are an essential part on any supplementation.

good

I am writing this to tell you not to be put off by the reviews saying it doesn't mix or it tastes bad, I just added two heaped 5ml spoons (the ones provided) which is around 5G BCAA to 500ml water bottle, shook it and within one minute it completely dissolved, and there was barely any taste. It does taste bad, when undiluted, but when you add enough water it mixes easily and the taste is barely noticeable.

Taste is horrible

Recovery is okay but I literally could not get it to mix. Put into my mixer with the metal mixer shook for ages. I then used a fork andspoon but the ppowder just clumped and settled. Taste is vile I could just about stomach it. Don't think I will continue to use this product.

BCAA scores 10 out 10 on effectiveness, it is a must have. Choose the flavored one as unflavored tastes like hell. IF you can afford a few more pound, go with iBCAA (instant BCAA) which provides everything BCAA gives plus tastes really good.
