I'm amazed to not find a lot of very in depth reviews on this product. I'll admit this is a pretty simple product in theory, but that doesn't mean careful consideration shouldn't be taken in it's use.

I came to buy this supplement because I realized the amount of BCAAs I was getting from my supplements...

This stuff works, plain and simple. I found it really helped with recovery and mass building.

I won't kid ya it tastes pretty bad and it doesn't dissolve easily. Still I found that if mixed with a little whey (1/2 scoop of EAS vanilla) and skim milk. I can mask the taste and texture pretty well....

I started incorporating intermittent fasting into my bulking and cutting routines so naturally I wanted to invest in a quality BCAA product. I trust Optimum with many of their other products so naturally this was the first one I jumped on.

This is my first BCAA supplement I've taken so I can only...

Wow this stuff is so gross. I thought unflavored would be mixable with my Protein shake which already has a strong taste, but this over powers it and the whole shake just tastes like dry cement pieces. It works really well though, I felt more energy and had faster recovery and it's really cheap. Got...

I might have more cons on my list, but the pros by far out weigh them.
I usually mix this with my pre-workout and post-workout drinks. It don't mix well and tastes bad. If I don't take it I can notice a difference in energy during workout and soreness post workout. It has helped me put on about 4lbs...

Takes a true man to slam this down unflavored with water. I take a scoop and put it in my water or gatorade before every single bench and leg day. It supposivedly gives you more muscular endurance and reduces the so called "catabolism" so why not slam it down.

Tastes bitter as can be but that...

I took Optimum Nutritions unflavored BCAA before (5 g) during (10g) and post (5g) and would take 10 grams upon waking up with my creatine.

Taste: 2/10
Unflavored BCAA tastes absolutely discusting and bitter but you need to just sack up and pound it down. It’s not about the taste. I am not dinging...

Price was not good but I feel very comfortable taking optimum BCAA. The taste of the unflavored was absolutely putrid but I am not going to hate on that because I knew what I was getting into. I would prefer buying unflavored to avoid artifical sweeteners. I paid 25 bucks for a 45 serving bottle so...

Great product. Great for recovery and for blunting muscle loss during a lean out. Its a pretty good energy source as well. Powders work better for me, and this one mixes pretty easy. A staple in my arsenal
