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.
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
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
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 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 !!!
This is by far the worst tasting worst mixing supplement that I have ever used. I have used various supplements over the last 25 years and I can honestly say this one is Nasty. It tastes vile and does not mix with water at all. As for its effectiveness I really could not say as I have been unable to stomach it for long enough to form an opinion. The flavored one may be better but trust me you will waste your money on this one.Goes Well With:The bin
I chose tropical it mixes well with a shaker not spoon. With water it kind of taste like a tropical squash refreshing but with a funny after taste. Goes Well With:Water
Great product does what it should. Dunno how people think unflavored tastes rotten their is no taste at all of it . Its all about results not taste would recommendGoes Well With:water
i bought this product to hopefully take away the aches the next day after a work out.. And it works!! It is incredible, you just add 5g to your water and it does the job, also helps to your 2litres of water in! I bought the unflavoured and you can't even taste it, so it just tastes like water! I would highly recommend to get rid of the pains!! Goes Well With:Water
Mixability is awsome, take 5g with every shake and don't notice taste. Sometimes take 5g with my coffee, just stir in like sugar before a workout. Goes Well With:Protein shake and coffee
I've been using the BCAA's for a while now and they are quite good. The tropical one has a very nice taste and mixes well. I've also recently tried the berry one but the taste aint so good and goes clumpy when mixing. In the future ill just stick with tropicalGoes Well With:water
It's a very good product, orange flavour tastes nice and easy to mix in a generic sports bottle. Haven't used it for very long as yet but looking forward to seeing the results!
I've tried your other BCAAs and this is probably my favourite flavour so far (tropical). Great product, mixes well and does exactly what it's supposed to.
Ordered plain the first time around and found a really bad after taste and that it didn't mix. It just clumps on top of whatever you mix it with. After some advice, I've moved to iBCAA and found it so much better. My advice is pay the extra and get iBCAA instead Goes Well With:Shakes (if you can stomach the bad after taste and don't mind lumps)
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!
First time using bcca's, skeptical at first but very impressed with results in just two weeks. Feel stronger look fuller. I take before, During and after exercise and I use more than than they recommend on the packet. Currently 30 grams,10,10,10 around training and planning to up it to 40grams soon, I read an article on bcaa's which said taking anything less than 40grams is a waste of time, I will experiment and see what happens. I bought tropical flavour which is cool, mixability is not great but be patient and keep stirring you'll get there, better in a sports drink bottle just give a good shake and your ready to go. Goes Well With:Water of course. whey protein creatine B complex vits lot's of good food training and sleep
this bcaa is great stuff it mixes great and tastes decent, still waiting for some effects as ive only just started using but I can see it coming along Goood 👍
Taste of the BCAA is terrible unfortunately. Bought the raspberry lemon flavor and it was so sweet its barely drinkable. Still feel like it is quite effective though.Goes Well With:Squeeze half a lemon in the mix and its drinkable.
I've been using this product for about 3 months and have really noticed its effectiveness - not achy at all and mixes well with my Dextrose (also from MP). However, I'm absolutely gutted with my latest purchase - I always have tropical which tastes just like tropical squash (delicious) but I opted for Blue Raspberry and Berry Lemonade which came the next day so 5* for delivery but the Blue Ras' tasted awful. It was so sickly and tasted like cheap lollipops crushed up (might be an acquired taste) and was so bad I ended up tipping it away :( I REALLY hope my Berry Lemonade is much nicer or I'll be quite upset - we shall see! So, if you want a natural tasting flavour, tropical is a solid choice. Goes Well With:Dextrose and water
Happy with taste and mixability, excellent price and does the job.
It's my very first supp and i must say, it does what it says. I mix in the morning 5g to get the day started and sip it till my workout. but the real deal is after the sweat, i just mix 10g into water, drink it and the next day, no sore muscles whatsoever. I'm really pleased and will definitely buy it next time.
Really good taste, mixes really well with water (it's all ive tried to mix it with). Noticed increased recovery speed and an easy way to get in more bcaas into your diet as it tastes so good.Goes Well With:Water..
Other than the poor mixability the watermelon tastes good
These BCAAs are a perfect way of getting your amino-acids whilst on a cut and even when not. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
First time trying my proteins bcaa and its epic!! Such a great taste and it mixes very easily! I mix mine with water and creatine! It has such a good effect which is long lasting!
Use this product as part of my fasted regime, have I noticed any benefits? Not sure. Tropical flavour tastes nice, somewhat sweet with a hint of sourness. The only negative is that it does become less mixable and clumpy over time. As such, when mixing with water it leaves ball bearing sized lumps - vigorous shaking does't disperse them... but leaving the water to do its dissolving magic works a treat. Leave for 5 minutes and it's fine.Goes Well With:Water
After reading reviews upon reviews, I decided to get myself some BCAAs. Definitely worth it! Has improved my recovery time greatly, I have more energy and plus makes a great tasting preworkout drink along with my creapure (Tropical). I would definitely recommend to anyone.Goes Well With:Creatine, water, squash
This is definitely a nice product to have on your stack providing the extra bcaa's especially leucine as it turns on your anabolic switch to build muscle. A noticeable amount of gains and recovery I've noticed and also i found that i look leaner.Goes Well With:Water
I tried BCAA's a while back because everybody was suddenly raving about them and I wanted to see what the hype was about. They're pretty cheap so it wasn't much of a risk. When using BCAA's I notice that my recovery times are improved greatly, often shaving a day or even two days off my usual recovery times. I also feel more energetic throughout the day. I believe they contribute towards muscle growth, but I'm not currently taking them as I don't think they're essential for ME. They mix easily with water, often don't even need to stir or shake. The UNFLAVOURED version is cheaper but it tastes foul, sometimes I've gagged while drinking them with just water. Mixing with something like milk, juice or protein shakes hides the taste very well thoughGoes Well With:Milk, juice, Impact Whey, Dextrose
At first i did not like it but after a week of having it im in love with it. It gives my water a refreshing taste and mixes easily in a bottle, however i would recommend packaging it in a bottle? The powder gets all over my hands as im trying to grab the tiny scoop. Goes Well With:Anything - gallon of water with double strength concentrated juice powder.
Mixes reasonably well, best left for a while for the last lumps to dissolve before drinking. And put the water in first or the powder sticks to the corners of the shaker. Blue raspberry tastes good, if a bit sickly sweet. I'm using to maintain muscle while intermittent fasting so I can't comment on its effectiveness yet. Goes Well With:Water, intermittent fasting
This product is amazing, never before have I come across a more hydrophobic powder. I cannot dilute it, it covers my shaker cup in powder but the water remains almost clear. I put it into a blender and I can just about mix it in at minuscule quantities (5g per L ish). I may buy it in the future to waterproof my boots or if I ever build a submarine.Goes Well With:Plastics, metal, concrete... pretty much anything other than water.
These bcaa's are brilliant, I make a drink with this in conjunction with creatine and it bodes well as a brilliant preworkout! I have tried, Tropical, Watermelon and Berry blast. Tropical by far tastes the best so far, it has a very natural kind of taste. Berry blast tastes nice but it also a little weak, its got the flavour, but following guidelines on how much to use, I found the drink to taste very weak Watermelon tastes amazing, but its just too sweet for me, its so sweet that its almost sickly. Overall I am very pleased with this product and i will be buying tropical again and againGoes Well With:Creatine - Unflavoured
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
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
