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.
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.
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.
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.
As a dietary supplement we recommend consuming 5 grams 2 - 4 times daily for optimal results. Best consumed with your preferred amount of water or fruit juice.
Add 2 heaped MP small scoops (5g) to your preferred amount of water or fruit juice and consume immediately.

The BCAA powder is extremely effective at what it is designed to do, and really helps me to maintain my muscle mass during cutting periods. Having recently just completed a cut, coming down from around 89KG - to 81KG, BCAAs really helped me to maintain my muscle size, density and strength. Even managed to squeeze more reps out on the 50KG dumbbells! Yes, a lot of my weight was probably water retention, but I lost that and maintained easily with this product. Consuming one serving as soon as I wake up, one before/during my workout, one serving after and one before bed with Casein I find this really aids my recovery. I opted for the unflavoured version as being a student, every saving of money helps and the taste shouldn't bother you, just get it down and quit whinging!
I decided to go for the unflavoured version because I wanted to mix it with my protein shake after my workouts. It ended up making my shake taste really bitter. The taste is like drinking medicine/chemicals; with water it's bad but with juice it's okay. Problem is I don't like drinking juice but since I bought this I'm forced to because I don't want to waste my BCAAs. However, I don't think I'll be using this supp anymore I'll probably opt for the tablets. It mixes easily in a shaker bottle or any bottle.
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.Goes Well With:Water, Fruit juice.
Good product, add unflavoured to some juice and mix in an standard sports bottle and mixes well, doesn't even need a shaker to be mixed, taste hidden by normal squash.
This product is really good and very effective,I have seen results in just over 2 weeks and very pleased! However the taste is awful when mixed with water and mixes reasonably well when shaken properly with a shaker! Definitely will buy again!Goes Well With:Squash
have ssen improvements since using this product. I buy the unflavoured version and mix it with my shakes, but it is ok equally on its own.
Great product to assist training and muscle growth.
Great product Great tasting I use the Berry Blast mixes great.
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.Goes Well With:250ml water and shake well - No Lumps!
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.
