Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. They are considered to be essential amino acids because humans could not survive unless they were present in their diet.
BCAAs are required to maintain lean tissue and studies have shown that they help to preserve your stores of glycogen. BCAAs also prevent tissue breakdown during training.
Unlike other amino acids BCAAs are not metabolised in the stomach and are instead metabolised directly in the muscle. This unique quality means that they build lean tissue and stop catabolism. These unique amino acids (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine) cannot be synthesised by your body so they are essential to your growth.
Don't like the taste of BCAA powder? Why not try our BCAA+ Tablets.
You can increase the effectiveness of BCAAs by consuming 10mg of Vitamin B6 with every 10g of BCAA.
As a dietary supplement we recommend consuming 5 grams 2 - 4 times daily for optimal results. Best consumed with your preferred amount of water or fruit juice.
Add 2 heaped MP small scoops (5g) to your preferred amount of water or fruit juice and consume immediately.
1 x level MP Plastic Scoop (small) weighs 2.2g. (not included)

Excellent product. Okay it doesn't taste nice but that's how raw bcaa tastes. Just spoon it into your mouth and drink a glass of water straight away and it's gone. There's bcaa powders out there with flavour by they're twice the price. The products should be rated on effectiveness and this product works. Plain and simple!! Increased strength and endurance. Worth the taste!

"Best price ever, I am taking 5 g before workout, 20g during workout, 5 g after workout, 5g in the morning and 5g before bed. I am getting great results, that´s all that matters at the end of the day, forget about the taste or mixability."

"Cannot say anything about effectiveness, because I've always been using this product as my pre and post workout drink and I do not know how would I feel without drinking it. But I believe BCAA is the same no matter where you buy it. And I buy it from MYPROTEIN because of the huge price difference. I do want to comment on taste however. This is something terrible you put in your mouth. Screw those who say man up and swallow it. Yeah, ok, you swallow it and go to gym only to have that terrible chemical after taste in your mouth. At first i was going to throw this BCAA in the bin and buy myself BCAA capsules which are almost 3 times the price. BUT!!!!, I FOUND A SOLUTION that works miracle for me!!! I mixed it with grape juice. I can barely feel the taste of BCAA. I get grape juice from lidl, which is all together is still much cheaper than buying capsules."

"agreed the taste is terrible...cuold have taken the caps, i read it before that bcaa or EAA is best taken before tranning and for optimum result best is to consume it during the training (prooven works)... and many people cry bout not abling to drink it regulary, but come on drink it during the training add glucose or fructore with it and you dont feel it anymore... mix BCAA + Glucose or Fructose and you'll have a trainning like you never had... theres more to add to drink while trainning"
