Quick SummaryA legit vegan sourced BCAA product that can help you reach your goals.
IntroductionWhat is going on guys? This product caught my eye because of the impressive looking ingredient profile. I'd like to thank everyone and SR and Black Lion Research. Let's get right into it!
Ingredient Profile8g of Vegan Fermented BCAAs 2:1:1 ratio: The manufacturer explains on their website that most BCAA products are made from skin/hair clippings (some gross stuff to think about). This product however, is made from only Vegan options like corn, which sounds much more appealing than the latter options lol. Eight grams of BCAAs is a GREAT dosage! I'm glad some companies are finally going over the traditional 5 grams per serving (which absolutely works I'm not knocking the 5g model), but sometimes you just need a little bit extra to truly maximize recovery. They kept the 2:1:1 model which is a proven effective ratio and sourced their 8 grams of BCAAs from vegan sources. The higher BCAA dosage is obviously the shining point of the product for me.
1g of HICA: Hydroxyisoleucine is the primary metabolite of leucine. Studies have shown that this can help increase muscle mass at dosages of around 500mg, so 1g is another GREAT dosage. It works to support gains in mass and strength while promoting accelerated muscle recovery. I've never really had a product that utilized HICA, but it sounds like a great add on for this product.
100mg of Sodium Citrate: might delay the onset of fatigue by acting as a buffer
100mg of Potassium Chloride: Another salt substitute that I can't find much information on scrolling through the internet.
This BCAA supplement has an impressive label! I'm very excited to get to try this.
Taste/Mixability/DosingTaste: I had Kiwi Strawberry. The taste was very weak to me and I mixed it with about 15-20 ounces of water. It wasn't bad tasting and it wasn't good tasting, so I can't really praise or ridicule it.
Mixibilty: Really flawless, the powder was so finely ground that it dissolved super easy for me every single time.
Dosage: I took 2-3 servings every day. One of those servings was after I woke up in the morning and the another was always directly after my workout in the afternoon.
