What are Branch Chain Amino Acids?
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 can consume by mixing with water, or for best results add 2 MP small scoops to your favourite fruit juice or pre/post workout shake.
Please note that the labelling on this product is provided in English as a minimum. French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.

mixes well. the watermelon is great. the orange doesn't taste at all like orange. would prefer the higher ratio like 3:1:2..... but great for the priceGoes Well With:water, creatine
this product has helped out in my workouts and i will buy this ,product in bigger doses next timeGoes Well With:protein shakes as well as pre-workout drinks
Great BCAAs. Started taking them when I was doing IF to get me through my morning workout. The best bang for you buck that I could find for BCAAs especially when you are consumbing 15-20g a day. However, the raspberry lemonade flavor tastes very artificial. Personally I prefer the watermelon flavor. It is much more mild and you can add drink mix to it. Goes Well With:Preworkout
flavors are good, mixes well. effectiveness tbd. the 3:1:2 or higher rations seem better than this 2:1:1. can't beat the price thoughGoes Well With:water
This is the best BCAA I've used with best price. My muscle seems to be recover faster than ever. Thanks for your great product !!!
I've been using Berry Blast BCAAs and they are so good. I love that it uses beet root extract as the primary ingredient, so it's more natural than a lot of other BCAAs on the market. The taste is a bit weird at first, but i've come to like it much more than other BCAAs i've had in the past. Give it a try!Goes Well With:Water
Great product, mixes well and tastes great.
I thought the watermelon tasted great.Mixes well.I would definitely buy it again.
I ordered the watermelon flavor and I was so disapointed about the taste. It tastes chemicals. I was expeting something sweeter an d something tasty but its not. It has a great mixability tho.Goes Well With:water
Great price and taste Goes Well With:Water, protein, and creatine. I also use this in my morning meal shake for flavor I like it so much
Got the lemon lime. Mix it with L carnitine. Have it Intra. Wish it didn't have the color in it but that's my only complaint. Goes Well With:Water or whey.
I was delighted with the product. After reading the reviews I was not sure if my money was well spent. The product has great value compared to other products. A teaspoon is a serving in a 2.2 kg bag there are 200 servings. I had no trouble mixing the product, shook twice and it was mixed. Using the recommended serving of water it is too sweet for my taste, I just diluted it to a full quart. Blue ras tastes pretty similar to a slurpee. I did seem to power through a workout easier, and have had less delayed muscle soreness. I would buy again. I have tasted a whole lot worse supplements in my life. This one is pleasant.
I have never taken BCAA's before. I ordered the unflavored because I hate drinking "sugary" drinks while working out. Obliviously I mixed in a scoop with water and went off to the gym. The taste of the unflavored is disgusting. Going forward I started using bits of crystal light mixed in which helped mask the after taste. Other than the bad flavor, I have noticed changes in my workouts and my body since I started using this product two weeks ago. I will continue to buy this product. Unlike the other reviews, I have had zero problems mixing this with water.Goes Well With:Water
Tastes great, mixes poorly, but who cares?! Great product.Goes Well With:Any fruit drink.
I saw the Labdoor review and thought this would be perfect. Well, I was first wrong because I didn't realize Labdoor was only rating the unflavored version and that this one had sucralose. Oh well, I figured I had been using other sucralose BCAAs so this one would be OK. I was wrong again. This is the worst tasting and worst mixing BCAA I have ever used. I bought a big bag of the Raspberry Lemonade. I'm actually drinking it as I write this. It has a slight fruit flavor I guess, but no real lemonade flavor to it. It's basically just sweet tasting. If you take a glass of water and dump a bunch of Splenda in it and think that tastes good... you might like this. Me, I can't stand it. It mixes terribly. You have to mix the heck out of it and it will still have a bunch of white powder floating around in it. I will never buy this stuff again. Goes Well With:water
Doesn't mix very well . But taste good.
Tastes better than Optimum. Cheaper than Optimum. Mixes better than Optimum. LabDoor tested to be better than Optimum. I'm all about it.Goes Well With:Blue Raspberry Creatine and water
I usually use BCAA during workout mixed with maltodextrin and water. I keep getting BCAA with watermelon flavored, and the taste is awesome. At first, it looks like it doesn't mix well, but as soon as I'm ready to workout, it's cristal clear. The price is really good compared to other big names of the industry, and honestly BCAA's are BCAA's no matter where you buy it. The ratio leucine: isoleucine/valine is 2:1 which is common. I like to add some leucine to the mix as it has been showed that leucine is really the rate-limiting factor in term of maximizing muscle protein synthesis. Cheap, taste good, and effective. My g2g! Goes Well With:maltodextrin L-Leucine Water
Of course it tastes terrible but it works. Maybe it's psychological, but either way in less than 2 weeks I notice a difference. I bought unflavored and I add a shot of Mio Energy to 20 ounces of water with between 5-10 grams of BCAA. Drink it during your workout and some after. Goes Well With:Mio energy mix.
The Lemon Lime BCAA 2:1:1 is really bad tasting. It doesn't really taste like lemon lime just really bad artificial flavors. The coloring is weird (light green) which is fine but all the artificial color dyes? What's the point in adding unhealthy chemicals that adds no gains to this product. Not recommended.
