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.

Worth the price.

Good mixability combined with a decent taste (I prefer Berry Blast over the Tropical) makes this well worth the money. I use before, during and after training to maintain muscle mass and a few weeks on and I'm also seeing an increase in muscle endurance with less recovery time. The only issue I have is when mixing with whey protein, as it seems to make it froth a lot. I just have them seperately now. As usual, delivery time and ease of purchasing was excellent.

I've been using these BCAA's for a while now pre workout, to reduce muscle recovery time and they work great. All these reviews saying mixability is poor must be doing something wrong.. I take 5-10g of the Berry Blast flavour stick it in with about 250ml of water into my shaker and it tastes just like juice, no lumps or clumps.

IT MIXES

This stuff tastes rank at first, but trust me, mix it with half a pint in a shaker, and then shake it again. IT WILL MIX. And after a couple of weeks, like anything, you get used to the taste. The dust is a pain when you open it, but other than that, great product.

I always lose muscle with running or cardio but since I have taken BCAA's it has solved this issue. I've noticed that I keep my muscle after long runs and my body fat has dropped. It works really well with intermittent fasting and lean diets.

This is great vale stuff, and BCAA is not meant to mix perfectly, if it does then you don't have BCAA, hence adding it to boiling water supposedly improves mixability

- (14 / Aug / 2014)

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.

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.

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.

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.

I've been using this product for a while now and I love it! - either in my whey/creatine mix before and after training whih I also use to flavour. Or, just as a drink throughout the day and during training. Love the 'berry blast' flavour'!!! I have been using MP for quite some time now and I am seeing significant gains - MP products are just great in my personal opinion and their customer services are just as good. I recently had an issue with the flavouring in the BCAA product which was rectified very quickly and MP sent me out a new pouch! Very satisfied!!!!!

Tastes great and mixes well, which after reading a few reviews I was quite surprised by cause I've seen a few complaints.

I think a lot of people are giving this a bad review because they're not allowing enough time for the powder to actually mix in. I put 2scoops in a 500ml bottle and fill it up with water, give it a 5mins rest, a quick shake and it tastes like a very diluted squash drink!! I can't say I've noticed a change in my recovery time just yet, but I'll stick at it and see how my results improve.

BCAA's Review

- (24 / Jun / 2014)

5

This is a great addition to any nutritional regime, add BCAA's to your training programme and increase your progress. In my programme I take two table spoons of BCAA's before training and the same after. There is a method to this, which is to gather a table spoon full from the pouch and put it in your mouth and have a glass of water to hand and take enough water to swallow the powder in one. I would not recommend mixing this with a shake though, just get it down in one, you know you are not buying this for it to taste nice, but just get it down and see results with training.

Goes Well With:

Whey protein but do not mix it, though add this to your nutritional programme.

Effective, but horrible to drink.

- (20 / Jun / 2014)

Usually get the BCAA tablets, but got this for the higher contents of BCAAs in it. It's effective stuff. Helps with recovery time a lot. But actually drinking it is horrible. It ruins the taste of anything you add it to i.e. protein shake etc, if you have unflavoured. Mixability is poor, but it does dissolve in water eventually. Just need to keep stirring the water until it clears up. I add some orange cordial to it and that masks a lot of the taste and it's easy to just knock back in one then. Add it to a shake though, and it just turns the shake bitter. To make it easier, I have a small smoothie blender that has a small plastic cup attachment that I use to mix it. Just put water with a couple of scoops in and blend it up for 20 seconds then down it.

Goes Well With:

Cordial and a lot of stirring.

BCAA a must with recovery

- (18 / Jun / 2014)

Well I am 37 (getting on) and been trying to be a muscle god for over 20 years failing miserable lol. My main issues have been recovery and fatigue. I have nearly finished my first pack of BCAA's and well I have seen some amazing results. Recovery for is now minor issues as I have been taking BCAA before workout , after and just before sleep. The first set with preworkout BCAA actually gave me a ridiculous buzz (dont know why) then I notice fatigue was no near what I had prevously felt. As alway got a cold and was off for about 8 days. On coming back as always I would have ridiculous chest pains on recovery and again these were practically non existent with BCAA. Again I had an insane buzz on starting training after drinking My BCAA. Th buzz could be a placebo effect but I really do think that My body has probably always needed BCAA boost. Loving training again and would reccomend adding BCAA to your diet even if you a 2 to 3 times gym goer , i am now able to go 6 days a week with no issues on recovery. I am taking IMPACT WHEY Protein Isolate as well twice a day while dieting. ******* The key to mixibility is put in a shaker with around 200 -300 ml shake well, let stand for 2 mins and cloudyness goes and it blends with any liquid.

Goes Well With:

Whey Impact Isolate, Water , dilute Ribena ( or any other berry cordial :)

Bccas - high dose whilst cutting

- (05 / Jun / 2014)

5

I am 30 years old, 12 years lifting experience and 10 years as a PT. I have cut around 5x never with BCAAs. Previously I have noticed some muscle and strength loss which I thought was inevitable. This time I thought I would try using BCAAs to prevent catabolism of my muscle tissue which studies have claimed it does. I started with about 15g of BCAAs a day, one upon waking, one pre workout and one during workout. Over the next few weeks this did seem to slow or completely prevent muscle breakdown in a calorie deficit. I read more and more studies suggesting that more BCAAs would enhance the muscle preservation and strength so increased my doseage to 40mg of BCAAs for the last few weeks. Well... Some things happened I did not expect. I have more muscle fullness, INCREASED strength and think that I may have actually gained a slight amount of muscle! It also seems to have accelerated my fat loss and my recovery has been immense considering I am a natural trainer, train 6 days a week, in a calorie deficit with about 6.5 hours sleep a night. I have tried fat burners, test boosters, pre workouts blah blah etc etc but this is now my favorite supplement. A must if you are dieting IMO and want to maintain hard earned muscle.

Sorry but this stuff tastes absolutely rank and doesn't mix at all well. I bought the non-flavoured stuff and like creatine I just scoop it into my mouth then wash down with water, this is ok for creatine but this stuff sticks in your throat making you gagg. I've since bought the tablet version of this and I'm yet to use them but this powder has to be the worst supplement I've ever tasted. Does it work, who knows !?!?

Initially tried this product as an alternative to standard whey, now use it alongside. Find it's very effective at giving me that little bit more energy during the session and I feel my recovery time between sessions has been reduced, allowing me to train harder and more regularly. I use it with water and a little squash cordial, then it tastes just like a normal glass of juice. You do have to give it a decent shake, as sometimes powder can collect (doesn't taste great in powdered form!). Otherwise awesome product - love it!

- (07 / May / 2014)

I use it post workout 10-15g with 40g or so of simple carbs (skittles or dextrose whatever youve got to hand) and is amazing for recovery. I use two scoops of impact concentrate pre workout (breakfast) with some porridge, and coupled with this post workout I never feel like recovery is an issue any more. A day of setting PB 1rms used to be destroying but now I bounce back fantastically. The unflavoured tastes like cabbage that spent a few months under bigfoots armpits, but have had no mixability issues when using plenty of water.

The other reviews weren't wrong!

- (22 / Apr / 2014)

3

I've bought other products before that have had negative comments about taste and/or mixability and I've never had issues with them myself but in this case the negatives are on the mark. With creatine powder I tend to use a shot glass and a splash of juice and it's no problem at all and in shakes it's tasteless but this stuff is *much* more difficult. It smells quite strongly and seems to be extremely hydrophobic so returns to the top of a standard shaker pretty quickly. I've also found it affects the taste of shakes but it's not unworkable. So far I've found it's best taken either in a blended shake (the thickness seems to prevent it separating) or in a bowl of porridge with flavoured protein powder. I would avoid taking it off of a spoon at all costs! As for the effectiveness it's always hard to tell this early but I have found that when taken just before a circuit style workout it does seem to make me quite nauseated. I can't be certain that this product is to blame but I'm going to stick to post-workout and mornings now - if it even halves the DOMS I get after doing my legs I'll be getting more of it...

Porridge and blended shakes

First of all I've tried both theTropical and the Berry flavour and would recommend the Tropical for definite. Been using it for quite a while now, first of all before a workout and then mixed with Whey Isolate after workout. Now it's morning, lunch and mixed with the protein shake after a workout. It really does seem to be helping with muscle recovery, aching a lot less after and the next day now, which means I can do even more. Building lean muscle too. Tried mixing with skimmed milk, low calorie juices and water.. Water seems to mix the best with less lumps and doesn't taste too bad either, but if you're not keen on the taste then I'd recommend trying it with some juice. I buy unflavoured whey isolate so it's good mixing with that and adding flavour. I have bought it a couple times now and still continue to buy :) solid staple in my healthy eating and workout plan.

Im not sure on the affects but have had berry blasts which tastes good. There is an issue with mixability, but i have found that the best solution to this is to buy a small juice bottle (Like a fruit shoot) and fill the powder in here and top with water. Then vigorously shake the bottle, remove lid and drink like a shot.

Bought this in the berry flavor, tastes very strong like chemical flavor. I chose this over the tablet version as already take a lot of tablets per day, however the flavor is really unpleasing.
