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.
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.

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
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 :)
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'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.
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 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 !!!
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
Great taste and mixes pretty well. I use it when doing fasted cardio and seem to work well
i found this product very effective when trying touchiest my goals, within a couple of weeks I could notice I was getting bigger. Felt stronger in the gym when lifting too, found myself progressing more than I have done taking normal protein shakes, I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to put mass and size on.Goes Well With:powerade
It's a really good product and had so much support from this company, do appreciate this but I would recommend not to mix it with whey as it tastes alright but it's better to take it by itself that's what I do.Goes Well With:Water or juice
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.
I used to take the tablets of these, which i thought i was going to die a few times, because of how large they are! Now i take the powder, mixing is not a problem and the grape flavour is LUSH. Just like the red fruit polo you used to get NOM
I am using grape flavor at the moment, not bad, but nothing amazing either. I find BCAA important since I train fasted and my work-outs are usually 90-120min. Taking 5g before and 5 during-after my workout. Good stuff. I'll try different flavor next time.Goes Well With:water
Taste is like flat bubblegum Panda pop. Putrid. But really good product.
Very effective, reduced doms after training, flavour wasnt very nice very sweet, had tropical in the past and would opt for that flavour
took an orange taste good taste I like
I have to say I am happy with My Proteins decision to look into new flavours. Little disappointed with the Rasherry Lemonade, it's alright but to sweet for me. The Grape had hit the nail on the head! No doubt my go to MP flavour. Other than doing the job with the proven ration of aminos, Grape tastes amazing
Got the blue berry flavour tastes great and dissolved easy
Great product in helping me achieve my goals.
Thought I'd try the powder version as I was.sick of the BCAA horse tablets and was most pleasantly surprised. Ordered Tropical fruit flavour and found it very easy to mix with water & easy on the pallet too. Appears to work as well, I'm the wrong side of 50, still training hard & since I've been using this product, have had no real aches or pains, I recover fairly quickly & am lifting more than i did 10 years ago! Will deffo re order,
Great taste, really easy to mix. Gives me a boost before work for fasted training.
This taste horrible as it should! But it does the job of protecting your muscles. Best to take it before, after a workout and before you go to bed!
very useful addition to my training regime
Overall I'm happy with!. Taste so what should be the real BCAA, coma do not like the taste, there are different flavors. Diluted with water bad as it must. Recommend!!!
This is a good product but it definitely doesn't stand up to the IBCAA that MyProtein has. It doesn't mix very well but it is just as effective. I had the raspberry lemonade flavour and I have to say it was a huge let down. It's one that I will have to learn to love or force down. The berry blast is much better.
I been using this for the past year or so good stuff easily mixable although I use unflavour with my impact whey protein great source to feed your muscle recovery
I ordered raspberry lemonade flavour and I couldn't find fault! Not a problem with mixing and taste great too!!
Great way to get your BCAA s in and easy to use
Great tasting. Works great for anytime of day. I mainly have mine during workouts and since I have been taking BCAA's regularly I never feel 'too sore' the following day. Highly recommend product - good price and swift delivery.
Shakes easy into water, tastes good and does the job!
I ordered the tropical flavour mixes well tastes good. I take it 2-3 times a day and I feel I recover quicker. Sometime I mix it with beta aline to create a pre-workout.
I didn't buy it for myself but for my husband who goes to the gym regularly and since he has this post workout he felt that his recovery time is much quicker. I'm now tempted to try it by myself after my gym session as well :)
Great taste and keeps you fuelled during your workout
This product is of great value! Its cheap compared to many other places and the flavors are perfect! I ordered all my products in the same flavors so that they all go in one shake and it works perfectly. After starting to take this product under training i feel better and less tired!
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 these amino acids 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 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.
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!
As always excellent product
Excellent product excellent effectivness
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 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.
