    Introduction

    My name is Blake Pullen and I am an Exercise Science major at Kennesaw State University. My current fitness goals involve a caloric surplus and "lean bulking" which is basically trying to put on about 1-2 pounds of lean muscle per month while limiting my fat gain as much as possible. I was attracted to the MyProtein BCAA because of my use of many other of their products sold through the company and their constant sales.

    Ingredient Profile

    2 grams Leucine
    1 gram Isoleucine
    1 gram Valine

    THAT'S IT, No filler, no unwanted cheap additives. In this case, less is more! And they follow the highly recommended 2:1:1 ratio

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    The Blue Raspberry flavor is one of the best tasting supplements I have ever tried!! It tastes more like cotton candy to me but I would mix my creatine and other unflavored supps in with it and the flavor was still just as sharp. It's very noticeable in the best way possible. Taste:10/10
    This product always mixed right in with water and any other supplements I stacked it with. I never had any clumping issues. Mixibility 9/10
    With a proper diet where you're already meeting your protein needs the dosage of Amino Acids is perfect for quick muscle repair and aiding in my body's natural protein synthesis reactions.

    Effectiveness

    I used my BCAA's intra-workout and post workout for a period of 2 months (I got the 50 serving bag). I would take them intra-workout when I was cycling off of my pre-workout and I credit this product with allowing me to extend the life of my workouts without stimulants. Whether it was a placebo effect that I was ingesting BCAA's while lifting or the actual amino acids rushing to rebuild the muscle fibers I was breaking them down I would rate it 8/10 effectiveness. Whatever it was it helped me rebuild my body no matter the time of day!

    Value

    You can currently purchase .5 pounds (50 servings) for $14.99 at MyProtein.com but I've seen them as low as $23 for the 2.2 pound bag
    Value: a solid 7.5

    Side Effects

    No negative effects for me
    No aftertaste
    No unpleasant feelings
    Refreshing!

    Conclusion

    I would recommend this product to anybody looking for a high-quality BCAA powder and looking to spend under $20 for a 2 month supply!

    • Blue Raspberry: 10/10

      How much water were you using? I always found the flavor to be too mild with a decent amount of water. Maybe it was just the flavor I had. But your right, nice clean BCAA source.
