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
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!
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.
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.
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 :)
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
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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
I tried berry blast and this is my 1st ever bcaa drank ever. It did not make me want to try another 1. Berry blast tastes like medicine and for someone like me that medicine makes me feel sick, it was a shock to my system. I am afraid to try other flavours. as for if it works.. i don't know. I didnt drink much cos of the horrible taste so maybe i didn't try enough to see if it works..?Goes Well With:I tried water and juice and nothing helped it. Urgh!
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!
Excellent product excellent effectivness
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!
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 !!!
I decided to start adding BCAAs to my usual mix of impact whey and creatine. Since doing this, about a month, I've seen some gains, but it's hard to attribute this to any one aspect of my diet or training. I can say that it hasn't hindered gains. I bought unflavoured as I wanted to be able to add it to my whey or smoothies without altering their normal taste. This was a mistake. When they say unflavoured what they actually mean is "tastes like an armpit". Seriously, it stinks when you open the bag, and taints the taste of almost anything you add it to. I'll buy again, but flavoured. Goes Well With:Impact Whey
Brilliant results after being stuck in a plateau. More power and endurance and can finally see those abs coming through after having a baby!
First time trying BCAA & a flavoured one at that and I regret it. The Blue raspberry is so sickeningly sweet, I don't know how I'm going to get through the bag. The sweeteners are overpowering, you could add more water, I normally use 150ml but don't really want to add more water as I'll constantly be visiting the toilet and be bloated. Am yet to see the performance benefits as just started using it, but thought I'd warn others of the sweetness as I only got this after reading reviews of how good it tastes. It tastes like slush puppy raspberry flavour & bubblegum mixed together and really sweet.
I had the watermelon and thought the taste was excellent and mixed very easily. I haven't been using long enough to say how effective it is but I'm thoroughly enjoying it at the moment
Have been using it while dieting and have lost over 2 kilos in 3 weeks without any noticeable loss in muscle mass or strength. Tastes really bad but that's what I get for buying the unflavored!Goes Well With:Been using it along with the smooth chocolate protein. First or second taste of each shake is bad but is okay for the rest of the shake.
I've been using the powder form BCAA's for about four months now, and I find them a lot easier to take than having to swallow six pills at a time - two to three times a day. But in regards to effectiveness they are right on the money - I'm four months into my third cut and I can't speak highly enough of these. Although I'm not gaining weight, I am feeling stronger in all areas. The powder is convenient and easy to mix - but after the initial shake I would recommend leaving it for about two minutes and then give one final small shake to get rid of any excess froth on top. Most flavours are pretty bang on, and easy to take down - only fault is the sweetness and this is far more noticeable in the Blue Raspberry flavour. I take approximately one heaped 5ml teaspoon, three times a day. Pre, post and before bed.Goes Well With:Water
Purchased the Tropical Storm flavour on recommendation of switching to My Protein from another brand, tried the Berry Blast, but wasnt a huge fan, so went for the Tropical and I was glad I did. Great support suppliment, tastes amazing and mixes very well. Would recommend - am going to purchase more now!Goes Well With:Water only
The flavour wasn't as described, it tasted more like children's medicine than anything to do with raspberries or lemonade. It mixed ok, I tend to add the powder to a half full bottle, shake it violently then fill up the bottle and mix again. It has a little undissolved powder left at the top but I haven't noticed it whilst drinking. Since Instarted taking it (10g in 1L of water taken from 15 min prior to workout, during workout and finished off straight after) I have felt a significant reduction in muscle soreness and increase in recovery. So much so that I've been able to increase the number of sessions I do in a week. I'd definitely recommend this BCAA mix but would choose a different flavour. Goes Well With:Water
Very sweet!!!!!!!!!!!! unbearably sweet but will purchase again but instead get the unflavored mix. No BS, straight up good ratio of amino's and no proprietary blends. A good cheap way to get bulk amounts of BCAA's. Goes Well With:Juice, anything to counteract the sweetness
I have recently bought 1kg of Blue Raspberry, and I just have to say: It tastes so bad! I have been taking a lot of different supplements over the years and I can drink almost anything, but this one is the worst tasting supplement ever. I have tasted a lot of different brands "Blue Raspberry" and I love it. But this BCAA tastes like perfume and artificial sweeteners. I'm normally very satisfied with products from MP, but this time I am very disappointed. Now I have to buy BCAA from another brand, since this is undrinkable, and I'm probably going to have to throw it in the trash.Goes Well With:Nothing
Great product, mix it up and sip it threw the day, helps with the muscle ache
Although it may work well as bcaa you have got to stop calling it flavours which it clearly isnt. There is no lemonade taste and the sour apple is Not even slightly sour and has a completely fake apple taste. Dissapointed
Really good results, just do not buy unflavoured , the taste is quite overpowering, make sure to buy a flavour.
This product is super! I used to leave the gym with a busting headache because I would get dehydrated, I found it hard to drink water which I know is silly. I bought this product and put two scoops with around 600ml of ice cold water (tastes far better ice cold!) and I leave the gym feeling refreshed and headache free. Blue raspberry is really yummy and easy to drink! Goes Well With:Ice cold water!
Mixes well and tastes great, currently using the lemon and lime flavour. Can feel the benefits of using it and it tastes great. I mix 2 scoops in a 1.5l bottle of water twice a day and drink it throughout the day. Will try other flavours next time I'm ordering just to change it up. Goes Well With:Water
Tropical flavour tastes very good, mixes easily, been taking for 2-3 weeks recovery does seem to be improving in between work outs
Never tried these before, they were on sale so I thought why not? They taste great and I have noticed a difference since I started using them, will be buying them againGoes Well With:Water
Blue Raspberry tastes abit weird but is passable and does its job, reasonably satisfied with the productGoes Well With:water
Got this today because the amount you get per serving is meant to be better than the pills. I can see where the other review's are coming from about it being too sweet! The actual flavour is quite nice I think you guys need to reduce the sweetness by half and it'll be perfect. This is coming from someone with a sweet tooth!
I have been using this product for nearly 2 years I love it, I drink it at least 5 times a day mixed with 1 litre of water.. i feel good & can feel the benefits when I am training I feel stronger & my body fat has dropped by at least 11% since using this & doing 20 mins cardio after every session. Along with my impact whey protein & porridge the gains I have got have been amazing. I have recommended to my cousin & friends I love the grape & berry blast but blue raspberry has become my favourite right now. Goes Well With:With water or juice. But I just take it with ordinary water it tastes great without adding juice.
Really effective product, enjoying the powder considerably more than the pills. Great tasting too so even more enjoyable.
I have recently moved to this product instead of the tablets as I saw it as better value for money and had a sneaky idea. Firstly though if this works the same as the tablets I can't rate them enough, very effective. I've been maintaining and even making clean gains while I've been cutting. My original plan was to mix it with the grape creatine I take, however upon trying to mix it I had an absolute disaster. I found it very hard to mix with water no matter how much I used so had quite a few lumps when I was drinking it, the grape flavour covered it up so no complaints there. I will persist with the current situation as it isn't too bad but just a word of warning.
Grape flavor is way too sweet and too strong artificial taste in the flavor. Could be edible if they would use only something like third of the sweetener and half the flavor. Anyway, great product and very good value, just buy unflavored!
