Why did we design BCAA 4:1:1?
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) make up 35% of lean muscle mass. This makes them an essential element to anyone’s diet, but particularly for those who are training to build lean muscle mass. Although BCCAs are present in foods such as fish, chicken and steak, to get the same optimum dosage as BCAA 4:1:1 you would have to consume large quantities which would not only be extremely costly, but could also compromise your body composition.
How did we design BCAA 4:1:1?
BCAA 4:1:1 contains three of the 9 essential amino acids, Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, in a 4:1:1 ratio.These are classified as essential amino acids due to the fact that your body is incapable of synthesising them itself and must therefore be consumed via dietary intake.
What are the Key Benefits?
BCCAs are unique in the fact that they are metabolised directly in the muscle to kick-start recovery. Other amino acids, such as Lysine, are metabolised via the stomach before reaching the muscle tissue. Now available in Berry Blast and Tropical flavours, BCAA 4:1:1 powders are easily mixed with water or juice, leaving a smooth great tasting supplement.
Is this Product for me?
BCAA 4:1:1 can be taken by any male or female athlete, bodybuilder or sports enthusiast who is looking to supplement their diet with additional BCAA’s.
When should I consume BCAA 4:1:1?
We recommend consuming 5g of BCAA (1tsp) before, during or after your workout for optimum benefits. Alternatively, consume anytime throughout the day to supply your muscles with essential amino acids.

If anyone has a tip for mixing the unflavoured one feel free to tell me, it mixes terrible, powder doesn't disappear at all and just have to grool the fluffy water, once you get over that then the effectiveness is amazingGoes Well With:Water, creatine, lucine peptides
Been loving the Berry Blast flavour and given its so good, really fancied the Sour Raspberry. Whilst mixability like most BCAAs is great the flavour was really disappointing, not really sour at all and no where near as much flavour as Berry Blast despite using the same quantity. That being said it absolutely still does the job, just a little disappointed I'll need to work my way through this big bag before getting back to good old Berry Blast.Goes Well With:Ice and Water
Tastes a lot better than my last purchase and is actually quite palatable. Unsure about effectivenessGoes Well With:water and creatine
I read many reviews on which flavour to get and this came the highest recommended. It's not bad at all, the taste is pretty berry, it mixes fine, I take it pre/during/post workout. I have seen improvements in muscle growth and lost body fat. Muscle ache is minimum. Of course this is very much also down to working out like a dog and what I ear each day, but I'm pretty sure if I stopped taking this I'd notice the difference. It's looking good!!! Goes Well With:Water.
I bought the watermelon which tastes really good. I can see why some reviews say its quite sweet. It does but not too sweet. Tastes better with loads of ice. Also useful to add if you make your own pre workouts to mask the taste of the ingredients.Goes Well With:Squats
Bought supp to help build lean muscle. Use before during then straight after workout. Is unflavoured so would only take when stacking with other drinks or supps.Goes Well With:My pre workout that's already flavoured and my protein drink. I also use with my intra workout drink.
this product is one of the most tasty bcaa's and its works well, i will totally recommend it to anyone
Ever since I started using this I've noticed my recovery is a lot faster, tastes absolutely superb too.
Spot on never a problem with these 😊 good for the guns 💪🏻
Outstanding. Has totally helped increase my recovery, Mixes and Tastes unreal. 4:1:1 will be in my training for years to come. Well done MyProtein!!!! Goes Well With:My Pre and Vanilla Whey
I used to suffer horrendously with DOMS and was reccomended by my trainer to purchase BCAA. After reading reviews I opted for the 4:1:1 ratio and have never looked back. I'm on my 3rd packet now. Fantastic essential amino acids that help with muscle recovery. Tastes lovely, and mixes well. Highly recommended. Goes Well With:Water
Mixes well in shaker, helps after a heavy workout
Tastes amazing. One of my essential sups love it
Works well but tastes absolutely awful. Would not recommend simply on the grounds of how it tastes
The product doesn't taste amazing but I ordered unflavoured. The product otherwise is good and does help in the gym when trying to go much harder than usual and helps make those last few sets a little bit easier. I would recommend for anyone who is trying to improve their workouts and take their training that one step further.Goes Well With:Water
In my opinion it needs blending to properly mix but very tasteless which is great compared to other BCAA's.Goes Well With:Blender, coffee
Excellent product taste is really good drinking 5ltr of water a day is no problem as I really like the taste and knowing I'm feeding my muscles all day too is a win win for me Goes Well With:Happy with my water
Great product that I'm using every day tropical great flavour More than happy with it Don't think just buy it xDGoes Well With:Myprotein chocolate stevia WPC powder
Real nice light, natural flavour. Some of these can be a bit sweet and sickly after a while but I could drink this one all day
Really enjoy this as part of my workout. Great taste and price. Very simple yet effective product.Goes Well With:2 scoops of BCAA's with water
