Product Overview

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.

Please note that the labelling on this product is provided in English as a minimum. French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.

Key Benefits

  • Exceptional value for money
  • Great tasting and easily mixed
  • 4:1:1 ratio of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine

Suggested Use

  1. Mix 5 grams (1tsp) with your preferred amount of water or juice
  2. Stir for 15-30 seconds and consume
  3. Consume 2-4 servings per day preferably before/during or after your workouts

Been using this for about a month and it's been great. I train at 6am most mornings and add one dose with my pre gym smoothie and then add to water 2-3 times throughout the day. Muscle fatigue has been reduced massively and muscle growth has increased significantly. I'm using Sour Red Raspberry. Despite reviews to the contrary tastes fine to me and mixes well if you give it a vigorous shake.

I decided to give BCAA 4:1:1 a try after using the 2:1:1 formula for an extended amount of time. I've definitely noticed differences in faster muscle recovery in comparison to when I don't take any at all. Out of the 4 flavours, I've tried all but Unflavoured. Tropical: 3/5 > taste starts off alright, and goes down fine but after 2/3 months into drinking it, it tasted like death and didn't seem to go down well (could have possibly been affected because I was drinking this 20minutes after a protein shake) > mixes alright > strongest tasting of the 3 Berry Blast: 5/5 > by far the best out of the three > mixes fine, just let it sit for a while and shake again > taste isn't too overpowering, I guess it's a 1/4 of the taste you'd get from an Oasis drink Sour Red Rasberry: 0/5 > DO NOT BUY THIS > each sip tastes like death > mixability negative number/5 > the product sits on top of water and forms a film even after shaking and letting it sit and shaking again > it tastes nothing like the product name

Losing fat whilst holding on to muscle is tricky, the ultimate goal for many! This does the trick for me, which is why I go for about 20g a day throughout the day in 5g servings. From my experience you need muscle to burn fat and this is the best way to retain as much muscle as possible whilst on a calorie deficit.

Goes Well With:

Protein, CLA and omega 3

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 amazing

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.
