Product Overview

Product Overview

What are Branch Chain Amino Acids?

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.

What are the Benefits?

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. You can increase effectiveness by consuming 10mg of Vitamin B6 with every 10g of BCAA.

Who are they suitable for?

They're generally consumed by active individuals and are suitable for anyone taking part in intense training or exercise, looking to enhance muscle recovery. They also have zero sugar and fat.

How to take?

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.

Key Benefits

  • 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine
  • Ideal for all types of sports
  • Help maximise recovery

Suggested Use

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)

powder

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.

Raspberry Lemonade is crap!

Had the tropical flavor before and not a problem with the taste or how it mixed. However having ran out decided to order a new flavour as they didn't seem to have any tropical so I went for the 1kg bag of raspberry lemonade. It tastes like sweet antifreeze and to say it doesn't mix well would be an understatement as it just doesn't mix at all. Won't be ordering it again as very disapointed.

Unflavoured taste wrong

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 Branched Chain Amino Acids help protein synthesis and as a natural athlete that is key. Its a good product and i thoroughly recommend 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.

Absolutely essential

For all of us, branch chains are a staple when it comes to our nutrition, and this product from MyProtein does 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 acquired taste, fairly tart and sour. This product is always on my monthly order and should be on yours!

These is the first product 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 powder. 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.

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.

Taste should bother you, results should!

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!

Worst taste ever(Unflavoured)

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 the product. 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.

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.

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.

Review

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.

great value

I bought 1kg of unfavoured powder at a great discount price. It is very good value compared with the favoured, instantised iBCAA which i have been using for a long time...I also have the tablets form but they are expensive in term of £ per g. In order to overcome the bad taste, I mix it with a fair amount of Berry Blast flavouring powder (4 mini scoops) plus whey and pre-workout or post-workout stack ingredients. The taste is more tolerable but is still guite bitter. Alternatively, you can get a capsule machine and put them in size 00 or size 0 capsules if you find the unfavoured tastes unbearable. Dosages: 5g immediate before and 5g after workout. If i train extra hard with calories deficit diet or feel tired, I would increase the dosage to 7.5g~10g with 30g of whey to be taken before the workout. I am not sure if there is any point of taking Branched Chain Amino Acids intra workout at higher dosages if you are in positivre energy balance.

Effective, but horrible to drink.

Usually get the 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.

A must with recovery

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 :)

Bccas - high dose whilst cutting

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.

Everything You need to know about this SUPPLEMENT!

This product truly reflects what true bodybuilding supplementation should be, no gimmicks, simple and pure. It does what it it says on the packet full stop. However this ISNT A MIRACLE PILL I say this because people seem to over value the usage of supplementation and lose focus on how hard they have to work for true results. At the end of the day if you are not disciplined with your diet and the consistency of your work out then dont even bother! Its like giving an onese person the best running shoes in the world, they will help...only when used for their primary purpose! In other words it will work if you first understand that for it to work and aid you in achieving your goals will require that you are disciplined and dedicated to your workout and diet! With this in mind, what also pleased me about this product was that the recommended dosage is right on the ball, the boffins at myprotein really did their homework on this one.What most people dont know is that most branched chain amino acids supplements (tipically pills) have such low amounts of bcaa's in them (5g) that it does not actually even have an impact on your system! Now some of you might think...does quantity really matter? The answer is....wait for it.....YES! And myprotein have recognised this each serving typically giving you a whopping 10-15g of bcaa's an amount that will actually help you preserve muscle tissue! Dont believe me? All things considered I would recommend this product to everyone i know who is DEDICATED about bodybuilding it will do the job so long as you do yours! NOTE: DONT FORGET TO BUY A SMALL SCOOP FROM MYPROTEIN as it doesnt come with a small one. The reason im saying this is because it came w a regular size scoop however HAVING NOT READ THE PACKET I assumed that that was the correct scoop to use and it is not! It just comes with it but on the packet it states that you need to use a small scoop not a large one like i did the first time i took it. Trust me ignorance does have a price i unknowingly drank like 200g of bcaa's and had a bad stomach ache for simply using the wrong scoop size! All in all great product, unflavoured one is horrible tasting with water but its the purest form you can get as there is no added crap, plus it doesnt taste so bad when mixed with orange juice! Hope this helps, remember stat fit and leave ignorance at home read and study what you put into your body after all that is what being truly fit is about! :D

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.

Must have

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!

recovery in a pouch

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!

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...

Great for recovery

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.

Give it time

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.

Awful awful taste

This is the first bad review I have had to write about a MP product. The unflavoured powder is absolutely disgusting. The most bitter, horrible taste you will ever experience. Usually if I hold my nose I can get through horrible tasting drinks but this stuff is overpowering. I have read a lot of reviews about the taste and will either try one or two recommendations (although all say the taste still doesn't fully go away) or else just put this stuff in the bin. I am reluctant to try any of the other flavours offered by MP because of how bad my experience was with the unflavoured (it's not unflavoured - it's 'bitter sick flavour'). I would not recommend buying this product unless you think you can stomach the taste. Perhaps the capsules are an option.

Nick Mitchell programme kick-off combo

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 version 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, this supplement 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.

A convenient way to add protein to your day

Efficacy of Branched Chain Amino Acids 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 Branched Chain Amino Acids marketing wasn't so overhyped this product would be cheaper and more viable for wide use. At the moment you're paying for convenience.
