Branch Chain Amino Acids, most commonly shortened to BCAA, are made up of the amino acids L-Valine, L-Leucine, and L-Isoleucine respectively. These are amino acids that are important to just about everyone, not just for athletes or bodybuilders. While at rest, these amino acids are necessary for promoting the healing of wounds, and during exercise, they are known for preventing the breakdown of muscle tissue. When they are working independently, they are just as necessary. Leucine is known for its contribution to wound recovery for injuries sustained by muscles, bones, and even skin; on the other hand Isoleucine is known for boosting the general energy in the body while also helping in production of hemoglobin which is necessary for healing wounds too. Finally, Valine is known for helping to maintain the balance of nitrogen in the body which is necessary for developing muscles.

Directions

Serving Size & Timing

A single serving of BCAA supplement is around 1500mg of the powder which is to be administered 3 times a day or more or less depending on intended effect. The more athletically inclined will usually use more than this, but any deviation from the suggested serving size should be discussed with a healthcare professional before taking any of the supplement. 1500mg, for those that do not have a precise measuring instrument is about three quarters of a teaspoon.

BCAA's have a grainy look and a white coloration. They are bitter in taste and are totally insoluble. It can be administered effectively by sprinkling on a meal, but since it is so bitter, the most common preference people have for taking this powder is to blend it in with some kind of smoothie or fruit based puree. This supplement should be consumed a half hour before any exercise or a half hour afterwards. Taking it with a meal is generally preferable as it may help assuage any feelings of nausea that come with the taking of the supplement. Suggested serving size aside, anyone that takes more than 400mg at once should be prepared to handle the bitter taste, no matter how well mixed in it is with another food source.

INGREDIENTS & FURTHER INFORMATION

CONCENTRATION OF BCAA'S

The blend of ingredients that has found to be most effective in BCAA's is a mixture of 2:1:1 of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine respectively. This means that a 500 gram serving of BCAA's will contain 250g Leucine and 125g of each Isoleucine and Valine. It should be stored in an area that is both dry and cool, and should not be placed in the light.

BCAA SIDE EFFECTS

People that introduce BCAA's into their system too rapidly have reported experiencing fatigue, muscle stress and muscle pains, but this should go away if introduced in smaller amounts and over time, rather than all at once. If taking any other drugs while considering this supplement it would be best to discuss this with a physician even if there are no known interactions associated with the drug. If experiencing any kind of kidney or liver affliction this supplement should be taken in lower doses than recommended.

Synergists

During exercise it is common to consume Branch Chain Amino Acids combined with a fast-release carbohydrate such as Dextrose or Maltodextrin. This is designed to prevent fatigue and thus improve athletic performance. BCAA's also stack well with L-Glutamine; together they form an unbeatable muscle-preserving duo.

Customer Reviews

Great service great product for muscle support

I have been taking bcaa's for a while now. They definitely help with recovery and energy in the gym. I found that the bulk supplements bcaa is a lot finer than most and mixes so much easier. If you have never taken an unflavored bcaa powder before this is a warning. Bcaa's are really bitter. Bulk supps brand is not as bitter as some but still pretty bitter. Best thing to do us mix it in some crystal lite or some kind if flavoring. Bulk supplements has very fast shipping!

Bulk Supplements' products are the real deal with no frills to jack up the price. They are the pure form and you won't find anything better anywhere else at their prices. Their service is exceptional and delivery time is 2 days. Perfect!!

It really helps with that extra pump I need in the gym. I wake up in the morning with noticeable muscle mass gain. I would recommend to anyone.

First of all, the service was super fast. I didn't expect the order to arrive that quick. This is my first time taking BCAA in its pure form other than it already mixed in protein drinks. I am very pleased with the taste and it mixes very well in water. No gritty or residue left behind. Highly recommend this product.

I would highly recommend the Branch Chain Amino Acids from Bulk Supplement. I found the product mixes very well with water or juice. It is highly quality form of BCAA. I particularly like the packaging the seals easily to keep the power fresh. Taking BCCA has help enhance my recovery from hard running.

Every other brand of BCAA I have used has had a tendency to clump up when I mix it making it pretty unpleasant to drink. I've found that these BCAAs mix up perfectly with no grit or residue.

You won't find a higher quality or more pure form of BCAA in the 2:1:1 ratio than this for your workouts. So far, recovery in between sets has been stellar! Highly recommend.
