Overview

What are Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s)?

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) contain a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. These amino acids are considered to be essential amino acids to be consumed within the diet, as they cannot be synthesised in the body.

BCAA’s Benefits

BCAAs can be consumed throughout the day for or before, during and after workouts. You can increase the effectiveness of BCAAs by consuming 10mg of Vitamin B6 with every 10g of BCAA.

Who are BCAA’s Suitable for?

BCAA’s are generally consumed by active individuals and are suitable for anyone taking part in intense training or exercise, or anyone looking to increase lean mass with reducing body fat levels.

Taste is horrible

- (24 / Jul / 2014)

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.

BCAA 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 (instant BCAA) which provides everything BCAA gives plus tastes really good.

I've been using this product for a while now and I love it! - either in my whey/creatine mix before and after training whih I also use to flavour. Or, just as a drink throughout the day and during training. Love the 'berry blast' flavour'!!! I have been using MP for quite some time now and I am seeing significant gains - MP products are just great in my personal opinion and their customer services are just as good. I recently had an issue with the flavouring in the BCAA product which was rectified very quickly and MP sent me out a new pouch! Very satisfied!!!!!

Tastes great and mixes well, which after reading a few reviews I was quite surprised by cause I've seen a few complaints. I just add 2 scoops to 500ml water and shake, leave 5 mins and give it another quick shake before drinking. Noticed a big difference in my recovery time aswel. **Highly Recommend**

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.

BCAA's Review

- (24 / Jun / 2014)

5

This is a great addition to any nutritional regime, add BCAA's to your training programme and increase your progress. In my programme I take two table spoons of BCAA's 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, but horrible to drink.

- (20 / Jun / 2014)

4

Usually get the BCAA 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.

BCAA a must with recovery

- (18 / Jun / 2014)

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 of BCAA's and well I have seen some amazing results. Recovery for is now minor issues as I have been taking BCAA before workout , after and just before sleep. The first set with preworkout BCAA 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 BCAA. Again I had an insane buzz on starting training after drinking My BCAA. Th buzz could be a placebo effect but I really do think that My body has probably always needed BCAA 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

- (05 / Jun / 2014)

5

I am 30 years old, 12 years lifting experience and 10 years as a PT. I have cut around 5x never with BCAAs. Previously I have noticed some muscle and strength loss which I thought was inevitable. This time I thought I would try using BCAAs to prevent catabolism of my muscle tissue which studies have claimed it does. I started with about 15g of BCAAs 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 of BCAAs 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.

The worst tasting supplement ever !

- (22 / May / 2014)

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 !?!?

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!

Only just bought this product but it tastes quite good, abit like blackcurrant robinson's MP should attach the scoop to the outside of the bag though as mine was right in the bottom so had to empty it out into a storage container and didn't realise how dusty this stuff is :) Now I've got it I will keep the scoop for future use but it is worth bearing this in mind.

recovery in a pouch

- (07 / May / 2014)

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!

- (22 / Apr / 2014)

3

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...

Porridge and blended shakes

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.

Bought this in the berry flavor, tastes very strong like chemical flavor. I chose this over the tablet version as already take a lot of tablets per day, however the flavor is really unpleasing.

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.

Arrived promptly. Mixes very well and just tastes like berry squash, no lumps left in just a normal water bottle, fully dissolved. I have only brought this due to the fact it's suppose to retain some lean muscle mass whilst being on a caloric deficit. Only used for 2 days so can't comment on results as of yet but it can't hurt having some free form amino's right? Cheap for the amount of servings you get in the 500g bag.

I bought the unflavoured one and it was just awful, the taste was actively bad - not just tasteless or dull it felt like drinking the smell of hospital disinfectant. However following advice from another review here I mixed it with Cheap, sugar-free apple+blackcurrant concentrated juice (cheap Ribena basically) and then added the water and it tastes drinkable. Can't say much about the effectiveness of it from firsthand experience, but the general consensus seems to be that it's good preworkout and prebed and what's the worst that could happen?

Mixes well for me (5g in half a shaker full of water even without a mixing ball). Unflavoured taste with just water isn't great but stomachable, with blackcurrant squash it's barely noticeable.

Nick Mitchell programme kick-off combo

- (04 / Mar / 2014)

4

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 BCAA 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, the BCAA 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

- (04 / Mar / 2014)

4

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