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.
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.
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 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.
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 :)
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
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 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.
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.
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 bought the 1kg of unflavoured as it's cheaper. I read the reviews about the unflavoured apparently tasting "horrible" and it's unmixable. However this is NOT the case! Once the powder is mixed in which just takes a few shakes, it helps if you have the metal mixer in your bottle, it dissolves very quickly! No bits or clumps whatsoever.. But don't expect it just to dissolve by itself it takes a good shake as you would expect with any powder mixing drink! The flavour is invisible, when mixed with water you cannot taste it whatsoever so I've no idea where people have this unusual taste from! As long as you like drinking water then you will like unflavoured, it's just water! I would highly recommend the unflavoured.. It's a bigger bag for a lot less money and all you're doing is drinking water! Which is perfect for workouts as water is the main thing you should and probably would be drinking! 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!
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 bought the raspberry lemonade flavour and its so so tasty!! I am really fussy so thought I wouldn't like it. Also mixes very well!!! Will be buying this one again once its finished! Thank you! Goes Well With:Water
I take BCAAs when cutting down and I find that I don't have the strength loss which I had previously before I started taking BCAAs. In the gym I feel just as strong when at a 500kcal deficit as when I am at a 500 calorie surplus! I used to take the tablets but they are large and quite bad value, having the flavoured drink makes it easier to consume in the gym. Orange flavour isn't too bad, just tastes like weak sweet orange squash. I usually mix it with weak grapefruit squash and you can't taste the BCAA at all. BCAAs are notoriously un-mixable, but I find you don't need a special blender bottle, just shaking it up in an ordinary water bottle or sports bottle is enough for it to dissolve.
good product to mix with water during my working day in between work-outs.
went for the grape flavour as a change its seems pretty good although a little powdery when shaking, it seems to take a little longer to mix than usual but other than that very good. tastes ok not too sour and not too sweet will get again or possibly in another flavourGoes Well With:water
I can't really comment on the effectiveness as I have only been using this product for a few days. However, the taste of blue raspberry is absolutely outstanding. I've had BCAA powders before, and to be quite honest none of those tested anywhere near as good as this. I know that it's not all about the test as we use these products for effectiveness, but I personally feel that it's much easier to use a product every day if the flavour doesn't make you retch. There are other reviews stating that this is effective, but I suppose I'll have to wait and see. Definitely worth the price! P.S: NO SCOOP INCLUDED! *****Goes Well With:Mixes well with 250ml of water.
Seems to be as good as any product out there and so far the quality seems good and the price is low (especially the 1kg sachet). I've tried the berry mix which is good but prefer to mix the unflavored into my whey protein shake to create an all in one drink as two shakes at once can be quite heavy. If using on it's own use at least 300ml water or doesn't mix as wellGoes Well With:Impact Whey Protein
Bcaa's are vital for people who are hitting the gym hard. I have a scopp during my work out and a scoop after. Super convenient and tastes good. I think the powder is better then tablets because it is absorbed a lot quicker! look after your muscle's and buy some.
It does exactly what is says on the tin but, DO NOT buy unflavoured. My Mother-In-Law's roast dinner's taste better
My husband purchased some in sour apple flavour, really not good, chemical taste, not sour just yuck. However the fat he has lost and kept all his muscle and probably gained lean muscle, and seemed to suffer less from DOMS, so had a look the reviews I decided on grape as that used to be a favourite flavour of mine when it came to sweets, and having cut out all sugar a sweet taste is vital at keeping sugar cravings away. Nice taste and mixes well in water, looking forward to seeing the results :) Goes Well With:Water, shakes
The product works wonders during training, having a decent flavour so does not upset the routine by being too sweet or rich. Adding to an unflavoured carb drink really fuels a workout. Also found it effective out of gym to add to cold water and drink when the previous workout was brutal.Goes Well With:Unflavoured intra carb drinks
cant beat it does exactly what you need it to great for fasted workouts if your up early in the morning, and ideal for intra and post workout recovery.Goes Well With:water
I've had blue raspberry before from another brand and it tasted fairly okay. I bought a 250g bag (luckily) of blue raspberry from myprotein and it arrived today. Being the impatient person I am, I used it straight away for my gym session. Mixability is perfect, nothing left over, scoop size was quite small, colour looked pretty cool and I like having a cool looking drink to sip on whilst working out; like a magic potion haha The flavour was not great, it was quite bland and had a little "yuck" taste to it towards the end of each sip, which in effect made me get a ~little annoyed and want to lift heavier so a thumbs up there! Blue raspberry isn't amazing, perhaps opt for another flavourGoes Well With:water
Been using it for about 2weeks now does what says in does so will write another review after about a month see if it's working fully but upto now less sore the next day and less tired also when working out so happy days
Started cutting 6 weeks ago with this product. There is a massive difference in effectiveness of the process if using BCAAs. It protects you from muscle loss, simultaneously losing fat, which is ideal!Goes Well With:Water
Fab product. Keeps me going throughout the workout. Wish I had brought a flavoured powder but I just get it down in 1 and it does the job
I tried 2 flavours in smaller packets to see how they tasted! The sour apple flavour is great...but not really sour. I'm not sure what kind sour flavour I expected. The blue raspberry is really tasty! All the 3 flavours that I have tried mix really well. They are very sweet though so if you don't like sweet, they might not be for you. I only drink water, so the flavours definitely perk up my water intake! Plus the price I paid was great!!
Great product. I add this to my whey shake twice a day. Improved recovery time time and Gaining lean muscle Recommend this product to anyone weight training and wants to add more amino acids to their diet Goes Well With:Impact whey protein + water Hurricane all in one
Having tried BCAA from numerous companys and being ripped off for my money, i came across this ! Its an easy mixable product, that tastes good (Orange is my fave so far) I have noticed fat loss from my cutting plan, however my musles are still full and my strength has maintained. I cannot attribute this soley on the BCAA, however I have not seen results like this with other products ! Thats one for you guys to debate if needing help to sway to buy these! Goes Well With:Water morning, pre and during workout :)
Currently about 4 weeks into my cut, and this time with a fasted cardio session in the morning the bcaa are doing an excellent job of not making me feel hollow afterwards. The strength is still there in my lifting sessions and the gains ive been noticing..... all kinds a gains!Goes Well With:water with any juice, just shake it up and chuck it in the hole in your head!
Great handy pouch, I add this to my Whey shake in the morning, post workout and evening. great addition, provides me with all the essential amino acids my body needs to build lean muscle. I found since using this product for a few months now that i am recovering much quicker, gaining strength and mass much quicker than without the added BCAA's Goes Well With:Hurricane XS for added BCAAs
The product is good. The flavour i bought is "Sour Apple" which is very similar to the taste of fake apple flavour you can have in sweeties. It's not great but it's easier to drink than the unflavoured one. I think the product can be improved by removing the colorant E110. Because the people already having Aspirin allergy might have an alergic reaction to this product.Goes Well With:Taurine
Usually go for a different brand for my BCAA's but when I recently needed to top up supplies; they were sold out so I opted to give this one a go for a while. No complaints at all; good taste (tropical) and mixes well. Doesn't give me the same energy boost that my previous bcaa's did but still help prevent muscle loss and help with recovery so all in all a good buy.Goes Well With:Creatine, HMB, Water
Great product great taste!!!! Doesn't mix perfect but the taste and and effect of the product makes up for it!!! Recovery has improved massively
I can't recommend this product enough! Still get soreness but the difference after taking BCAA while training is unbelievable! I can walk the day after a massive leg session!! I mix it with water while working out or carrying out any cardio.Goes Well With:Water
My 1st time purchasing BCAA's I read the reviews saying unflavoured tastes horrible, so I got Tropical (10/10). And the taste is lovely, I could have that flavour as a drink anytime of the day. :). As for mixability (3/10),its not good, but a couple of shakes and just gulp it down. Effectiveness is brilliant (10/10), I am hardly sore after workouts now and seeing all types of gainz!! A must buy!. I use this with whey and oats (No oats in the spring/summer,only in winter).Goes Well With:Whey and oats
