Quick Summary

This is a very straightforward BCAA product, with the exception that the ingredients are vegan and naturally fermented. It's essentially a direct, mirroring competitor to Kaged Muscle's BCAAs with fewer servings.

I don't always use BCAAs but when I do I notice the difference in recovery time especially-- or at least I expect to! Coupling that with NutraBio being a top 3 brand within the industry in every category (my opinion), when I saw this on the dash I jumped on it immediately.

Quick Summary

This is a very straightforward BCAA product, with the exception that the ingredients are vegan and naturally fermented. It's essentially a direct, mirroring competitor to Kaged Muscle's BCAAs with fewer servings.

Introduction

I don't always use BCAAs but when I do I notice the difference in recovery time especially-- or at least I expect to! Coupling that with NutraBio being a top 3 brand within the industry in every category (my opinion), when I saw this on the dash I jumped on it immediately. It's about as vanilla as it gets from NutraBio, with nothing but your normal BCAAs with the added fermented/vegan twist.

Ingredient Profile

What we have in BCAA 5000 is nothing unexpected. 5000 mg of BCAAs in a 2:1:1 ratio. This is sweetened with sucralose but there are not any artificial dyes included.

Taste/Mixability/Dosing

Taste: I received the Grape flavor and found it to be really good. It wasn't overly strong and I often dislike the taste of BCAAs-- not the case here though. In a full 20oz shaker the taste was light and refreshing.
Mixability: Somewhat subpar at first, when shaken the BCAAs tend to form into tiny clusters and only after you've taken a few sips and continued to shake in between do things finally completely dissolve. Smooth sailing from there.
Dosing: I used this twice daily most days, first during my lift and second as a drink at lunch. That's probably the best testament to the flavor... if it didn't taste good I wouldn't wash down a good meal with it.

Effectiveness

This definitely had an impact on reducing my muscle soreness and speeding up my recovery, which is the main thing I turn to BCAAs for anyway. It also was useful in limiting rest time between sets it seemed. I didn't notice a difference in muscle growth beyond what is normal and expected. This is mainly just useful for recovery both long and short term, and hydration. It shines in those areas.

Value

The best price I found for this was $29.99 for 60 servings. I think that's good but would actually prefer NutraBio's intrablast at twice the price for the full spectrum of BCAA/EAAs instead. That could just be me, but I always have better results when taking the full spectrum of amino acids.

Side Effects

None

Conclusion

Overall NutraBio delivered on this as expected. It's high quality, with no bells or whistles, and tastes good. If I were in the market for BCAAs as a standalone I'd probably look here first and have already directed others to try this product and received good feedback. Thank you NutraBio for the patience on this review and opportunity to try it.

Good job staying smart. A little slow down won't derail you for ever.  Some movement is better than none!
