Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are essential amino acids which contain a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. These amino acids are considered to be essential as they 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 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. BCAA's also have zero sugar and fat.
5 grams of BCAA's can be consumed 2-4 times daily. BCAA's can be consumed by mixing 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.
1 x level MP Plastic Scoop (small) weighs 2.2g. (not included)

Great taste and keeping you fuelled during your workout
Tried the new raspberry and lemonade flavour, and it is amazing! Perfect to mix and it tastes like a cheat! Great for taking whilst working out, gives you that extra lift you need and really helps with muscles. I have seen great changes since using this alongside other myprotein products.
I loved BCAA they make me feel more energetic and it has actually helped with my gains but the sour apple flavour is more like sweet apple... it needs to be more sour I don't understand why it is so sweet...
I use the unflavoured version in my protein shake and it creates an awful after taste to the shake, but fortunately i used flavourings, although i have to add extra flavour to beat this products taste. Taste aside, it mixes very well and i have noticed alot of gainzzzzzz while using this product. I do believe that BCAA's help protein synthasis and as a natural athlete that is key. Its a good product and i thoroughly reccommend it, although get a separate container and do not use the pouch unless you want half of your product floating around in the air.

Sour apple flavour is not as sour as i had hope, it is far to sweet, almost slickly. the apple flavour is there but its meant to be sour apple, that makes your lips smack and pucker, not apple so sweet you can barely drink it. please make it more sour/tarte.
For all of us, branch chains are a staple when it comes to our nutrition, and MyProteins BCAA's do exactly what they are supposed to do, absolutely essential for recovery and building lean muscle. I'll have two or three a day, making sure I get one intra workout. Mix ability is spot on. Berry Blast is lovely, Tropical is very nice too but more of a aquired taste, fairly tart and sour. These BCAA's are always on my monthly order and they should be on yours!
this stuff realy works. you will see diference, it give you more endurance for traning and rest periods are shorter. mixability is good, just put it in shaker and shake . I take unflavored and it not bad at all.
These are my first bcaas i tried, but i can feel the difference with or without them. It lets me do my workout without fear that i wont be able get up from my bed next morning due to muscle soreness. Solubility is fine - im using 0,5l of water for cca 10g of bcaa. I have berry blast flavour and it is good as such, but dont try to mix it with your chocolate smooth gainer, that is just very bad idea :D In conclusion I recommend this product. Great value for money and when it comes to the discount, it is even better.
After using product muscle pains have reduced. I'm using product for insanity and it has helped a lot.
Nice taste, although I haven't mixed it with anything other than water. More importantly very effective in reducing soreness and aiding recovery, and I have felt the benefit in terms of immune system. If I trained 4 days a week for several weeks in a row I would often get run down. Taking this twice a day on workout days and once every other day has made a noticeable difference for me in the 3 weeks I've been using it.
Great product works brilliant, the tropical flavour is amazing!

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.

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.
Really pleased with these. I used to use the pills but it gets a bit tedious, the flavours in the powder form are much more appealing and it's easier to adjust the volume.
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

The product is good and completes its function. But when it comes to mixability it performs badly. Cannot mix at all in cold water. The only way to mix this product is in boiling water.
Started using my protein bcaa about a year ago. Spot on product great price great flavour. Currently using for intra workout abd fasted cardio during my prep. Nice flavours on the pallet while dieting and effective supplement. No muscle loss atall!
this product works well for me a mix it with just water and it comes out nice no bits and all its in is a shaker bottle no blender or anything, Goes Well With:c4 preworkout

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.
Mixes easily & thoroughly. Berry Blast tastes pretty good and is easily drinkable. Aids recovery. Will definitely continue using & buying. Goes Well With:600ml water (the only thing I have tried, though!)
WOW!!! Recovery times were halved. Just great benefits, now only if the taste can be improved, the unflavoured is horrendous.
A bit bitter taste (unflavored), but can ignore it cause of great it's effectiveness. It really helps to recover after hard training.Goes Well With:Water and Impact Native Whey 95 (Chocolate).
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 just add 2 scoops to 500ml water and shake, leave 5 mins and give it another quick shake before drinking. Noticed a big difference in my recovery time aswel. **Highly Recommend**
first time using seems ok went for tropical looks like a urine sample tastes reasonable oly had it a couple of times so far so will update laterGoes Well With:water

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. Goes Well With:water

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.

Hey myprotein-users Its a great product, but the taste is not that great (unflavored). The ones with flavor is 100 times better!
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.
The unflavoured tasted disgusting and does not mix with water at all. Mixing it up with shakes does not help much either. Recovery time is shorter but that's if you can stomach this stuff.

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 :)

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.Goes Well With:Everything
Berry blast is okay taste wise, mixes really well and good for recovery. I mix 20g into a 2L bottle of water every day and drink throughout the whole day.Goes Well With:Water.
Seems pretty good to me, mixes well and I don't mind the berry blast flavour. As for effectiveness it's ok I guess

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 !?!?Goes Well With:Anything that will cover the taste !!!
Finally a BCAA that tastes ok! Results are good, recovery time has shortened, especially after doing legs! in a calorie deficit and still holding on to muscle massGoes Well With:Water in a shaker cup! I mix with taurine and a caffeine tablet pre workout
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!Goes Well With:Anything
Tastes good and mixes well with water. I read the reviews but I had no issues with the flavour or mix ability.Goes Well With:Water
Only just bought this product but it tastes quite good, abit like blackcurrant robinson's MP should attach the scoop to the outside of the bag though as mine was right in the bottom so had to empty it out into a storage container and didn't realise how dusty this stuff is :) Now I've got it I will keep the scoop for future use but it is worth bearing this in mind.Goes Well With:Water
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. Goes Well With:Lots of water, squash, simple carb source.
Doesn't mixes very well and the taste isn't very good but very effective dietary supplement.
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...Goes Well With: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. Goes Well With:Water, skimmed milk, juice, whey isolate
do you take this after or before a workout?
the reason i have deducted an overall star is because, being in the bag it is in, every time i open it im losing about 0.01 in dust into the air. not a lot to begin with but could add up. taste is unflavoured and slightly bitter but easily tolerable, put in a shaker, not too great to mix with water and spoon, great product though
Great price, great mixing ability, however tastes horrible and doesn't go well with flavoured protein. Next time I'll have to get some flavoured BCAAs as this will be a struggle to get down.Goes Well With:Nothing
I have tried both tropic and Berry blast and my favorite is tropic! It's very good and I love to have it with me when I am in My gym.
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. Not too sure if I would buy this again. I have tried mixing it with other things but the taste is very over powering. Use before training & after.Goes Well With:Creatine.

Berry Blast tastes amazing. In the first month of adding this to my training/clean eating regime I doubled my gains - I gained 0.7kg of muscle and lost 1.3kg of fat. That statistic speaks for itself - a must buy for someone trying to get lean for summer!Goes Well With:Impact whey protein, Hurricane XS, creatine
Good product at a good price. Mixed well, I have mine with water so the taste isn't great but I don't mind it!
Yeah, it doesn't mix well, but if you leave for 5-10 minutes it dissolves just fine. I have it with my shake. I prep the BCAA's first, 2 scoops in water and leave it in the shaker whilst I work out, add a bit more water if I need, add my protein shake powder, mix and it's fine. Without the flavour of the shake it tastes foul, but if you have a strong flavour like chocolate mint, it hides the horridness of this.Goes Well With:Water, patience
I like it, mixability in water is really good!
Bought unflavoured.... to mix with other stuff as pre and post workout. Does not mix well. tastes FOWL. Literally smells like hair ground up (wonder why!?)Goes Well With:Nothing
It does help me feel a lot better in general It has been great for pre and post work out I didn't get a scoop but I'll be buying again.Goes Well With:Pre workout / protein shake
Taste ok and mixes ok, just need to shake it well. Can defo feel and see the results, had positive comments already so all good!
Arrived promptly. Mixes very well and just tastes like berry squash, no lumps left in just a normal water bottle, fully dissolved. I have only brought this due to the fact it's suppose to retain some lean muscle mass whilst being on a caloric deficit. Only used for 2 days so can't comment on results as of yet but it can't hurt having some free form amino's right? Cheap for the amount of servings you get in the 500g bag. Goes Well With:Water
I bought the unflavoured one and it was just awful, the taste was actively bad - not just tasteless or dull it felt like drinking the smell of hospital disinfectant. However following advice from another review here I mixed it with Cheap, sugar-free apple+blackcurrant concentrated juice (cheap Ribena basically) and then added the water and it tastes drinkable. Can't say much about the effectiveness of it from firsthand experience, but the general consensus seems to be that it's good preworkout and prebed and what's the worst that could happen?
I have ordered the unflavoured one to mix it with juice or my protein shake. It works in a blender but if you put it into a drinking glas with juice it doesn't mix with it. I can only recommend it for a blender!Goes Well With:Impact Whey, Dextrose
This product is simply amazing for how much it cost, I would definetely recommend it if you are cutting and doing lots of cardio and want to preserve as much muscle as possible!! This should be one of the supplement basics within your diet!! I mix up 5g (1 level tablespoon) in water, pre workout for my morning cardio! And add another 5g scoop to my post workout shake later in the day!!Goes Well With:- water - smoothies - pre and post workout shakes
Pretty effective but unflavoured is pretty horrible, even with flavoured protein. Still stomachable though
This is my second time to get bcaa from myprotein. The flavours are good. I started training on 31/12/2013 without using amino acids. I train with the guidance of my son and he suggested using BCAA from my protein. It certainly helps recovery as I was very very sore initially but my recovery is very quick now that I use amino acids
Bought the tropical flavour which tastes great, just bought the berry blast recently which isn't the best. I would reccomend the tropical.
Mixes well for me (5g in half a shaker full of water even without a mixing ball). Unflavoured taste with just water isn't great but stomachable, with blackcurrant squash it's barely noticeable. Hard to comment on it's effectiveness but I take with water throughout my workout and don't feel tired, and have made decent gains when used alongside a good diet.Goes Well With:Water if you can handle a dodgy taste, squash if you want to cover it up a bit.
Really good product , tastes far better than the berry blast version. Very refreshing and helps you power through the workout
I bought this as part of a combo with Beta Alanine and Whey Protein to kick-start me on the Nick Mitchell 12 week programme and it was really easy to find all the elements and get some details behind each product. I must admit the first time I tasted it, I wasn't too impressed until a friend told me that the unflavoured BCAA is pretty bad and really hard to take and so I looked at it differently. It is a different taste but once you get used to it, it's absolutely fine and he was spot on, the BCAA is not my favourite drink of all time but the Berry Blast flavour makes it very palatable and helps make the workout really efficient. My only quibble is that the BCAA comes with a small scoop but you need a good scoop for the shake so a bigger one would be much more useful - I'm going to keep one from the Whey Protein shake to use with this in future. As for the MyProtein site, it's really easy to use, the regular discounts are very welcome when you're ordering regularly and the service is excellent with very prompt delivery and no issues whatsoever. I would have no problem recommending the site to anyone.Goes Well With:Whey Protein after the workout
Efficacy of BCAAs aside, this product is a very easy and tasty, yet expensive way to add protein to your diet. The powder is a lot more flour-ey in consistency compared to the comparatively dense whey. If touched, it'll easily coat and stick to your hands, and it's easily agitated by movement and air. This was particularly tricky when trying to grab the scoop out, as it settled close to the bottom! Despite what the description says, a small 2.2g scoop is included (same size as the creatine one). It doesn't give a recommended amount of water to add the scoops to. But I've found that 250ml per 2 scoops gives a decent yet mild flavour. Due to the aforementioned mining of the scoop, I've also discovered the powder tastes quite good neat, licked off my finger. The best comparison I can give to flavour is a weak Robinson's Apple and Blackcurrant. The only thing that puts me off is the colour - looks like a hell of a lot of beetroot red is in there! If you want a portable source of easy protein, it's very convenient to carry mixed in a regular water bottle. It's not thick at all like normal whey shakes, and no one would be able to tell whether it was regular squash or not. If BCAA marketing wasn't so overhyped this product would be cheaper and more viable for wide use. At the moment you're paying for convenience. Goes Well With:Water
Can honestly say that combining BCAA, with Thermopure CLA, Whey Protein isolate and a healthy diet has contributed to my body fat reducing from 26.4% to 24.3 % my weight has remained the same however there has been a significant increase in muscle mass and strength. Not the best tasting product I will probably opt for the tablets next time.
Another great affordable 'high end' protein supplement.
I have only given "effectiveness" a 3 because I have not used any of these products before, being new to the supplement world. The recommendation came from my PT after a body test and analysed my day-to-day routine and suggested this product as an addition to the Whey Protein. Goes Well With:Whey Protein in either milk or water....come to that, yogurt too.
This product is absolutely fantastic for intermittent fasting, whilst drinking this through out the day, it helps stop me form feeling hungry, since i do not eat until 12:00 at the earliest. it is also great for intra-workout (whilst exercising) since it helps replenish lost amino acids from exercising. I would recommend having 4 heaped scoops in a full blender bottle (600ml - 700ml). I also recommend having 1 heaped scoop in 100ml of water with 1 even scoop of pure caffeine (smallest scoop 290mg) pre-workout for a real buzz and pump in the gymGoes Well With:water caffeine intermittent fasting
Pretty much going to base this review mostly on taste and how well it dissolves. To put it straight, this is the best bcaa bang for you're buck. Tropical flavour is VERY sweet, almost tart. It's still a nice taste, and goes down easy as an intra supp. Nice and smooth, no gritty bits. Goes Well With:Plain ol' water.
Got this two weeks ago now, people suggested it doesn't mix well with water which is semi correct. What I found best is the place the BCAA into a sports bottle and shake it for about 30 seconds and all will dissolve nicely. Goes Well With:Water
Not bothered about taste providing its drinkable with milk or water, or mixable with oats. Its all of these, using unflavoured as it saves money. Cannot see why so many are so hung up on taste - MAN-UP guys or is it GIRL-UP for the ladies!. Should concerned as to how effective it is, it has to be the best value there is for a high a quality protein. Have used other premium brands which have been OK, but no better or inferior at 2 or 3 times the price. Use it with MP Creatine Mono (powder), and have virtually eliminated sore joints (I am 64, training partners are in their 20s), so can now train really hard without fear of injury, making consistent but lasting gains. Just a great product. Goes Well With:Creatine Mono
Never had a problem with mixing so don't know what the complaints are about. Taste (tropical) took some getting used to but it's fine now! I like to use it as an intra-workout drink. Can't get the taste out if my shaker cup though which isn't good.Goes Well With:Water
Its a good value effective product that works. It is a little hard to mix in a glass but if you put it in a water bottle and shake for a few seconds then it mixes up fine. I will be re ordering this product when I run out.Goes Well With:Water
I'm on to my second bag of this now and I'm impressed. Seems to be doing the job. I would agree about the mixability issues, I usually find after an initial shake/mixing if you leave it for 30 secs and give it another shake it all goes together quite well. The Tropical flavor is quite nice, the Berry Blast tasted very weak. I mix it in the morning with Alkalising salts and take it when exercising.Goes Well With:Water & Alkalising Salts
In terms of the unflavoured variety, this is possibly the worst tasting product ever created in human history..even mixed with double strength squash you still wretch at the vile liquid trickling its way in to your innards. I have also tried this with various chasers, protein shake, waxy maize, almond milk, coffee, tea, lager, vodka, whisky…but nothing seems to overpower its nasty taste – in all fairness I have yet to try petrol. Also, I have to mention that attempting to mix this putrid concoction with pure old water is futile, you could attempt this for 1000 years and you would still see the white powder float to the top of your mixer like little islands of intimidating repulsiveness! If anyone ever manages to get this to mix, please let me know your secret...with this liquid mastery, I suspect you could also successfully attempt turning water in to wine! However, having said all of the above – if you just go for absolutely anything other than unflavoured, manage to get it mixed a little and keep it down you’ll see some good results…well it worked for me!

This is the only product I've tried from Myprotein that I'm not entirely satisfied by. However impact protein, instant oats, maltodextrin, creatine, protein pancakes, coconut oil, cookies, etc that I've tried from myprotein are all the best.
My boyfriend bought this to use whilst working out, especially during his cutting stage. It allows him to cut and strip but maintain muscle! It's a great product. You never see him without it. Ideal for those wanting to cut but not lose muscle mass
Perfect for drying out, taste good!Goes Well With:Impact whey
I think this BCAA is a great product and the effect is really good. The taste could be better, but i don't think so much about it when i train and the product really help my muscle to grow! Goes Well With:Water!
Never use this website again... very poor delivery service
I guess this stuff does what it promises to do. It doesn't give any stomach cramps or give any unpleasant side effects. Bad news is I don't recall anything that would taste as bad and the mixability is very poor. But I think most other BCAA's on the market have those negative characteristics as well.
This is a great product
First time I've tested BCAA and have to admit that is useful. Gives me more energy and I recover faster.Goes Well With:Everything
Great stuff - I mainly use it to reduce recovery time, this stuff taken straight after a heavy session makes the next day a lot more bearable, even with leg days. Apparently helps gain muscle too, I didn't mean for that to happen but I did make some serious gains after starting to use this stuff. Gonna keep using it - the thought of going back to post-training days without the pain relief is scaryGoes Well With:Impact Whey
