Let's be honest, we all know why we're here. We know the effects of BCAA and we know it should be a staple in our supplement stacks, BUT if death had a taste, it would taste like BCAAs! Well, not anymore - I'd just about given up on raw BCAA powder, opting instead for capsules, but prohibitive costs forced me to reassess the powder situation. I'd heard this was a stomacable so gave it a try, just to be on the safe side, I ordered some extra just in case. Yeah I didn't need the extra flavouring! I mixed 20g with 1.5L of water (additional 20g of pepto pro as well) and started shaking, low and behold it wasn't soluble, foamed at the top and "here we go again", I thought. Got in the car, headed for the gym and by the time I'd got there (about 10 mins) the liquid was spotless! Everything dissolved perfectly. The taste is non existant (MyProtein's berry blast flavouring isn't the best in the world, but if this was the extent of my worries, I was happy). I kid you not, BCAAs are now, not only tolerable, but quite enjoyable. Top tip - add the water on top of the BCAA powder, shake and then let stand for 5 mins, shake again and you'll be good to go! Wizard!

I got unflavoured as I hate the sickly sweet taste of sweetened supplements. WOW did these BCAAs taste bad! At first I wondered if it made my breath smell even! It doesn't mix in particularly easily either - I mix with water and it will take some good shaking to stop it from just sitting on the top there in an unattractive lump. Keep shaking and it eventually mixes in (or leave for a bit and shake again). Having said all this I did think this supplement was particularly effective. Perhaps it was psychosomatic but I felt like I was working out harder and more effectively when I used the BCAAs. I am small and find it hard to put on muscle and maintain weight, which is why I tried this product and my perception has been that they are effective and I would purchase again.

Choose the 4:1:1 option

Overall:

5

Recently bought these after making the switch from regular BCAA powder. The 4:1:1 option is noticeably better for helping my aches and pains after hard gym sessions. Recovery is reduced a little more than the BCAA 2:1:1 for me personally and I've noticed a difference in reduced body fat % so I'm guessing this played a role with acetyl l-carnitine. I'd recommend starting with the 2:1:1 powder for beginners still, but when progress starts showing I'd definitely recommend changing to the 4:1:1 formula.

Look here for gains

im a regular lifter and always taken bcaas as part of my diet. I've found it has helped me with steady gains and I've not really had any complaints... However as the summer fast approaches and like everyone else I've started my shred phase, whilst trying to maintain size. Being a ' normal' lad, working shifts, not being able to get in meals every two hours or train at the same time every day is hard work and the final result we all look for seems impossible to achieve. However I recently purchased this product and I've not been disappointed.. I've found that taking this 4 times a day with meals and combined with my diet, supplements and training has given me the lean mass and look I'm aiming for. if you want to jump on the gains train, I'd recommend this product.. Well done my protein

I take 3 scoops pre workout, for me personally nothing else even comes close. I mix it in a small water bottle and shake the life out of it for 30 second's, seems to be the best way to make them mix up, taste is nothing to get excited about but I couldn't care less about the taste, just drink it and be done with it. Buy this and watch the gains, just make sure you have your diet in check and you will be good, clean bulking is way to go in 2016.

I bought the so call unflavoured to mix with my shakes. No matter what you mix this with it has an overpowering Taste which is truly horrendous.

Excellent BCAA

Overall:

5

At first I wasn't sure about buying this, but eventually I've bought this product and man, I wasn't disappointed. I have gained some mass and my muscles are leaner and denser. I would recommend this to anybody who tries to get leaner muscles and muscle mass + it helps to keep muscle when doing cardio training. The only downside of this product is its taste and mixability, but this can be easily fixed by mixing the BCAA with protein powder or any type of other supplement. If your not sure to buy this product just go for it, you wont regret it.

Goes Well With:

Protein powder, dextrose, oats, fruit juice or water.

Upgraded BCAA's

Overall:

5

Mixability:

Taste:

Effectiveness:

I feel this 4 to 1:1 version of BCAA's is a more upgraded version of the regular product, this offers leucine in a 4 to 1:1 ratio vs 2 to 1:1 with the normal product, since leucine is the key amino acid for triggering mTor and stimulates protein synthesis which in turn allows for protein to be used directly for muscle building, i feel this version is a better option for those that are after the muscle building effects from bcaa's and require higher leucine, also you do not need to double up on the dose to get the same leucine content as regular 2 to 1:1 bcaas. This mixes easily and tastes nice in all available flavours, main benefits i find from this product are improved recovery between sets allowing me to train with less rest and decreased muscle soreness after hard workouts. if you found value in my review then please use my referral code geoff - rdt (no space in between dash and letters) and all in capital letters at checkout for 33% off.

Well what can i say the results i have personally had with this product are phenomenal ok the flavor is not the greatest but it is palatable and does not taste chemically. I am doing Keto at the moment and train heavy at least 3 times a week. So i only mix 1 scoop (5g) into a 2l jug on a non training day and 2 scoops (10g) on training day I use a low does as i train early in the morning and usually incorporate intermittent fasting during my diet with a 16/8 ratio and the low does keeps me in ketosis and prevents muscle wastage. My results have been amazing it has hindered the dreaded keto flue and my strength and muscle gains in a period of 5 weeks have been incredible. Since i tore my rotator cuff i had to start my bench press at half weight and in a space of 5 weeks i have added 40Kg to my 1RM. And i believe that incorporating this product into my daily diet has enabled me to gain my strength back. A 1Kg bag should last me between 100-150 days on this dosage I do not see the need to upp my dosage at this moment in time so this product is truly value for money.

Goes Well With:

Creapure Creatine Mono-hydrate is a must i mix 5g with my BCAA 4:1:1 in a half gallon jug at least once a day and have found this to be a potent combination.

Product did exactly what it said on the website, so no complaints there. In fact, I am very impressed with its effectiveness. I went for the unflavoured option, and it tastes terrible! So if taste is a big issue for you I would recommend the berry blast. I just mixed it with a bit of water and chugged it like medicine.

I started taking this about a month ago and find it great when i do workout in the morning when i have had very little or no food. I use this alongside a good nutritional plan and overall have seen great changes in that month. It tastes good but it does need to sit for a while in order for it to mix with water.

I did my research on BCAA's and was sceptical that these would actually do anything but I must say they work! I am way less tired after the gym and my muscles sores or DOMS have nearly gone completely, even after a really good session. This enables me to do more days in a row at the gym which can only be helping me build muscle. I am currently on a cut and have lost 10lbs but a lifting more! That must be a result!

Water at Breakfast, lunch, while doing a session and after a session.

What can I say? This is highly effective and so glad I decided to get this one, I use 5g Pre workout and 5g post workout. Mixing it I use 300ml-350ml bottled water and I mix half the water in a jug with bcca 4:1:1 powder and press against the sides of the jug to get rid of any powdered bits floating and add the rest of the water and fill in a bottle to place in the fridge until I need it as I like really cold. The taste is lovely, not overpowering and didn't leave any kind of 'after' taste in my mouth. After doing a HIIT session I didn't feel fatigued and I suffer from really bad muscle soreness which kicks in just before 10pm, I can honestly say that after my workout and then having to go out to get some shopping and come back home to then straight away in the kitchen cooking for my husband and Lil one plus cooking my own meals and prepping some for today (Sunday) and Monday I was able to stand and finish off in the kitchen until 10pm!!!! I went to bed my legs weren't restless and achy and I woke up this morning (Sunday) without muscle soreness or stiffness. I ordered this Friday 8/4 and got next day delivery and after using for the first time and so immensely impressed I ordered a bigger bag! Give it a try and don't be put off by some of the other comments because I was initially and ordered tablets but this powder will be quicker acting in the body for recovery. Well done MyProtein great prices and always lots of offers keeps us loyal customers coming back!
