Branched Chain Amino Acids 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 amino acids become more important as it is difficult to maintain the desired levels from food alone. With this powder you can reach optimum levels of branch chain amino acids in a quick and easy way.
Amino acids can be consumed throughout the day for or before, during and after workouts.
They're generally consumed by active individuals and are suitable for anyone taking part in intense training or exercise.
5 grams of BCAA's can be consumed 2-4 times daily. You canconsume by mixing with water, or for best results add 2 MP small scoops to your favourite fruit juice or pre/post workout shake.
Add your preferred amount of water or fruit juice into our shaker. Then add 5g, shake and consume. Use 2-4 times daily for optimal results.

I am 30 years old, 12 years lifting experience and 10 years as a PT. I have cut around 5x never with this supplement. Previously I have noticed some muscle and strength loss which I thought was inevitable. This time I thought I would try using branched chain amino acids to prevent catabolism of my muscle tissue which studies have claimed it does. I started with about 15g 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 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
Theis is a warning. Always go for a flavoured version and mix it with water. The unflavoured is horrific. It's like chewing fistfuls of aspirin. If you add it to a flavoured shake it removes all the original flavour and makes the whole thing really bitter and gag-inducing.
Effectiveness - I've used BCAA's from myprotein in the past and am very happy with the results I get from them. I always put in 110% effort on every workout and as a result have formed an intimate relationship with DOMS. Taking BCAAs lessens the duration and intensity of DOMS by a fair amount, making me able to hit that area again sooner - I train everything twice a week. I can't comment on muscle retention during cutting as I haven't had the need to cut yet. Eat right and you can just keep building lean muscle year round. Flavour - Previously I had some tropical flavour, this time I thought I'd live on the edge a little and ordered Blue Raspberry. Don't get me wrong, its perfectly palatable (if a bit too sweet and not at all raspberry flavoured), I just didn't expect it to be so...blue. I feel like I'm drinking a magic potion from World of Warcraft, and a couple of regulars have very helpfully pointed out that ink is for writing with, not drinking. It does go nicely with the lid of my MP shaker though. There's always a silver lining. Goes Well With:Water, MP blue branding, smurfs.
This BCAA product is effective, the flavoured version is always much more palatble and easier to mix than unflavoured. However I just purchased watermelon flavour and it is so sickly sweet I would never buy that flavour again. I previously had 'berry blast' flavour and I would definitely recommend that one. I don't understand why My Protein uses all these hideous additives and colourings to make the drink a synthetic 'watermelon' colour. I would much prefer to have a product with the least amount of additives possible especially one for a BCAA - I don't choose to drink it based on how appealing the colour of my drink is.Goes Well With:water
Really enjoying my experiments with BCAA's - seems to be providing exactly the boost I needed for quicker recovery and preservation of muscle mass whilst dropping calories. As a girl I'm not looking to get super swole, just to tone up, lean up and bump up my muscle size without getting bulky. This product has definitely helped me to train harder and longer. I'm seeing really impressive results and increased capacity on heavy weights and reps with a significant reduction in BF% and better definition. I have watermelon flavour which is good but pretty sweet. Mixes relatively easily but needs a lot of shaking.
I always lose muscle with running or cardio but since I have taken this supplement 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.
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 and well I have seen some amazing results. Recovery for is now minor issues as I have been taking this supplement before workout , after and just before sleep. The first set with these amino acids 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 branched chain amino acids. Again I had an insane buzz on starting training after drinking the supplement. Th buzz could be a placebo effect but I really do think that My body has probably always needed a 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 :)
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.
TRIED A SMALL BAG OF THIS IN BLUE RASBERRY TO SEE IF ITS ANY DIFFERENT TO TAKING THE "HUGE" BCAA TABLETS. WELL I WILL START WITH THE FLAVOUR BLUE RASBERRY IS VERY SWEET BUT TASTES AMAZING LIKE BUBBLEGUM PANDA POPS I DRANK AS A CHILD MMMMM, AFTER MY FIRST TASTE I WENT AND BROUGHT 2X 1 KG BAGS OF THIS STUFF! HAVE NOW BEEN USING THIS FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS HAVING 2 DRINKS A DAY SIPPING ONE WHILST WEIGHT TRAINING AND MIXING WITH 500-600ML WATER, I FIND THIS IS 100X BETTER THAN TAKING BCAA TABLETS, NO SORENESS WHILST TRAINING AND NO SORENESS AFTER TRAINING AT ALL WHICH MEANS I CAN TRAIN CONFIDENTLY EVERY DAY WITHOUT WORRY OF ACHES AND PAINS! WOULD RECCOMEND THIS 100% TO ANY SERIOUS GYM GOER CAN NOT COMMENT ON OTHER FLAVOURS BUT THE BLUE RASBERRY IS 10/10 FOR ME THANKS MY PROTEINGoes Well With:WATER 500-600ML HARD TRAINING
I've been using this no fuss, to the point powdered form for a couple of years now. I don't see the point in all those flavoured products or having it in capsules, it is what it is, as powder, shake it with some water and drink it.... I recommend this to anyone. I find this product especially useful as I don't eat meat, so despite all the careful attention to my nutrition it is still hard to hit all my needs in terms of amino intake.
This 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, Branched Chain Amino Acids 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!
This is a great addition to any nutritional regime, add these essential amino acids to your training programme and increase your progress. In my programme I take two table spoons 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 product for taking between meals, pre/intra and or post workout (I have personally have it pre-mixed in a bottle of water to take during my workout) or before bed depending how much Aminos intake you want or need daily. Have noticed I can maintain more lean muscle and strength gains by taking this on a daily basis. As I chose unflavoured it will taste a little on the bitter side but if you mix it with water in a mixer shaker or in a bottle and give it a good shake it blends into the water and you can't really taste the bitterness any more. I'd suggest taking it purely with water and not mixed with your protein shakes etc as it will get to your muscles and blood stream quicker. Good value for money also - give it a try you will not be disappointed :) as long as your diet and protein, carb and caloric intake is on track it will be the icing on the cake for your progress.Goes Well With:Water
Ok.....this product isn't cheap gramme for gramme....however, I find cheap = waste of money! time & effort. So...considering the muscle fullness I'm feeling on 20g a day: 5 on waking 10 pre workout & 5 during workout, I am happy with his product. Flavour is naff as is the unnecessary nasty colouring which stains your skin etc...(don't get powder on wet hands!) (lemon & lime). Mixability is excellent. However, we buy these products for results....this works!Goes Well With:Cold Water
Great product and can see and feel the effectiveness however unflavored is tastes horrible and struggle to finish it all as i cannot bare the taste, recommend to get a flavor!!
Only been using it for 2 weeks now and I can already noticed how quickly my muscles have developed in the short space of time since using the product. The raspberry lemonade flavour tastes excellent and mixes well too!Goes Well With:Water
I ve ordered the unflavoured one and it mixes very good with 200 ml water.My muscles recover faster too.The only problem is that the powder smells so bad it reminds me of my dogs food(eww).When mixed with water it doesnt smell at all but when i open the bag it smells awfull.I dont know why noone else mentioned it, i hope my powder is not outdated!
I have just purchased my first BCAA powder (used BCAA tablets before). This is a very effective product and I would like to give it 5* stars, but the taste is very artificial and the colour is totally unnecessary. I have tried the sour apple, it isn't sour at all and tastes very sweet, I struggled to drink it, so pinched my nose and downed it in one go. People say you don't buy it for the flavour, and I agree, but it's slightly gag inducing. Will definitely try a different flavour next time. Goes Well With:Water
Unfortunately can't review effectiveness as I gave it away due to the awful taste of sour apple absolutely horrible could not stand to have a 2nd attempt. I can pretty much stomach anything when it comes to supplements knowing its for a good cause however this is where I draw the line. Try Scivation XTEND strewberry and kiwi the best tasting BCAA powder I have ever tasted Goes Well With:The bin
Bought this in the sour apple flavour. Mega disappointed. The taste is so sweet and artificial. The colour is an off putting green/brown and the product mixes to an almost syrupy texture. It was very difficult to drink and didn't have a great effect on my performance. I used this once and I'll never use it again. Expected more from MyProtein considering the high price tag. There are much nicer products available for a few euro more.
Ok short and simple and covering the bases: Flavour: delicious and mixes well and tastes awesome with water Amount: depends on your training but MP online helpers are fantastic and guided me as to the amount I need to take based on my other nutrition and training type. Effectiveness: too soon to tell as just returned to training but taking this in conjunction with protein and increased nutrition so hopefully will see the benefits soon. Price: as always MP have awesome prices and lots of discount codes so haven't go elsewhere since buying from MP. All the best everyone!!!Goes Well With:Water
First time user of My protein. Went for the Cherry Limonade 1kg bag which is fantastic value. I would say the taste is to be acquired but you soon get used to it. I'm a big believer in BCAAs for muscle gain and recovery and have no complaints with My proteins BCAAs which have helped add definition to my size.
Had ordered the BCAA Sour Apple flavour, was looking forward to having something to drink post workout and was disappointed as it was sweet in taste and no sour to it at all. However the powder did mix well after a few good shakes overall the flavour is nothing like as advertised.. Not sour but sweet Mp could have just called this one sweet apple rather then putting out a product that does not deliver as advertised. Although I do the best flavour I had tasted so far would be the Berry Blast.
I have almost finished my first batch of BCAA, and have just ordered another. I terms of training I have made noticble lean gains, and have found them particularly useful for use during intermittent fasting. I bought the unflavoured variety, and yes it is a little bitter on its own but not to the point where it's undrinkable. Mixed with Impact Whey and Flavdrops I didn't notice an adverse effect on taste. On its own with water you need to give a pretty vigorous shake to get it mixed up, but in with you normal pre or post workout shake no problems. Overall an excellent supplement with good results. Goes Well With:Water, Impact whey.
I like the berry blast flavour but don't ever buy the blue raspberry. I had one sip of this and never wanted to taste it again - worst, more artificial flavour in the world. I threw it away it was so bad. Goes Well With:nothing.
Great supplement, find the mix ability quite poor with water but overall it's a great supplant for retaining muscle mass Goes Well With:Impact whey protein
A bit dissatisfied because this was recommended for my goals through live chat. Upon further research, realised it doesn't suit me
I purchased a 250g bag of the blue raspberry flavor and tried it out once and completely fell in love with it and purchased another kilo. the flavor is amazing! just make sure you dont add too much powder otherwise it becomes very sickly. it looks cool because it is literally bright blue! the overall effectiveness is amazing too. a very good product all together.Goes Well With:water
Tastes exactly like KIA black grape which used to be one of my favourite soft drinks, will definitely be buying more in future.
bought the grape flavor bcaa, and the taste is absolutely amazing. I enjoy drinking it as a juice during my workouts and in the mornings as well. Had a few injuries, and it helps recovery speed up. will definitely be buying another pack after this, have plenty of flavors to try :) highly recommend it.Goes Well With:water!!
I have been adding 10g of BCAA and 5g of Creatine to my Morning, Pre Workout and Post Workout Protein Shakes. The results have been very noticeable. Energy levels and Strength have gone up and my Fat Levels are going down. The addition of the BCAA is the only change to my diet and routine that i have made in the last 6 weeks. I use the Unflavoured Powder so the taste is not an issue and it mixes very well with my Protein Shakes.Goes Well With:Whey Protein Creatine
Excellent product excellent effectivness
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.
This product 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 which provides everything this ingredient gives plus tastes really good.
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
Hey myprotein-users Its a great product, but the taste is not that great (unflavored). The ones with flavor is 100 times better!
Don't waste your money on BCAAs. I've taken them during a cut and haven't seen any difference. Even today when i workout after 16 hour fast i don't take them, and i'm making all kinds of gains. Just hit your calories, that's the secret formula for everything. Don't be stupid andbelieve everything fitness industry writes.
Great BCAA powder!! I've had orange and now on unflavoured simply because the unflavoured option has a better %. The orange flavour was nice but I'm quite happy having unflavoured and putting it in juice. It mixes perfectly in my shaker with a blender ball and BCAA is one supplement I will take throughout the day every dayGoes Well With:Any still cold drink
Not the best because of the taste, however mixed with diluted water its pretty decent. If i had to recommend a BCAA it would be tablet form because powder is a bit messy.Goes Well With:Diluted Water
I have taken this product for some time, but previously in tablet form. Next purchase will be for tablets, they're more convenient to take. Also I find a slight metallic after taste with the powder form.Goes Well With:I've been adding BCAA powder to IsoPro97 - pre and post workout. I also add Creatine into my pre workout shake, and take zinc supplement.
Awsome product and great taste so ordering again.
I have the berry blast flavour and it tastes really good! Just like having a berry flavoured fruit juice, i take it before going to the gym in the morning and i don't feel hungry at all so it fuels my energy for the gym without any breakfast - as i have that after my work out! I have only been taking it for around 10 days so can't say the postive effect yet but currently it seems to be working along with a healthy diet, exercise, protein shake after work out & the BCAA tablets at night time. Goes Well With:Just water, sometimes mixes well but othertimes not so well but if you just give it a stir with a spoon its fine!
Happy with the product, taste ok and will continue to buy.
Great tast mixes well and the new packaging is great easy to seal up
BCAAs are a must for me. taking 10g during training. new taste cherry limeade is quite bad though.
Do not buy unflavoured BCAA, tastes so bad I can't use it after 1 usage. Tried putting in with Protein shake buy ruins the taste of the shake.
These BCAA's mix great and have a great flavor as well ( i had watermelon ) they also come in hand to drink during training and throughout the day giving you a dose of BCAA's highly recommend. Goes Well With:Water
Don't be stingy, pay few more bucks for instantized BCAA because this one does not mix at all. I learned the hard way. Goes Well With:Don't know
Used while training so tried lemon and lime to add flavour as I don't mix it with protein shakes, seems to be effective but the taste is not so good I'm seen pulling a few faces but it's a great price and your not being charged for fancy packaging or labelling.Goes Well With:Shaker
I've used a bunch of stuff from MP before and have got on well with all of them until now. I went for lemon/lime and upon opening it smells horrific then once added to water it turns to the colour of the hulks urine and smells/tastes similar. It didn't mix very well leaving a foamy layer on top. All this aside I did feel the effects from it so next time i'll play it safe and go with orange.
