Why did we design BCAA Plus?
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 BCAAs are present in foods such as fish, chicken and steak, to get the same optimum dosage as BCAA Plus 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 Plus?
BCAA Plus contains three of the 9 essential amino acids, Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, in a 2:1:1 ratio engineered to support all of your training goals.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. To compliment your body’s daily needs, we have added 1.4 mg of Vitamin B6.
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. Vitamin B6 contributes to immune system functions, protein and glycogen metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. BCAA Plus tablets are free from artificial colours and preservatives, yeast, gluten, starch and lactose and also contain no added salt or sugar.
Is this Product for me?
BCAA Plus can be taken by any male or female athlete, bodybuilder or sports enthusiast who are looking to supplement their diet with additional BCAA’s.
When should I consume BCAA Plus?
We recommend consuming 3 tablets, 2 – 4 times daily (before, during or after your workout for optimum benefits). Alternatively, consume anytime throughout the day to supply your muscles with essential amino acids.

These are decent, help with recovery and a nice addition to whey protein. Incredibly hard to swallow though, very large tablets.
A good product however tablets are a little on the large side, choked on a few of them and nearly passed out at one point when I started seeing black dots so have had to resort to cutting them into three sections other than that great productGoes Well With:Water
Loses a star for size, even taking one at a time, they'll often get stuck on the way down - even with lots of water. Otherwise, great product. Good results, zero taste, great price point.
These pills do the job, and very cheap! Only thing is they both smell and taste like cat food..Goes Well With:Cats
These are no nonsense standard BCAAs, does exactly what you would expect. recovery is better, health is better, retention of muscle mass when cutting is improved. feel so much better when taking these. only down side of these specific ones is the size of each pill, they are quite large, have got quite close to choking, you need to be careful... or break them before taking. overall all though - great product. Goes Well With:Whey Protien
After two weeks of 3 tablets 2-4 times daily a feeling of solid muscle mass was noticed. Cardio suffered in the warm weather but as the gains are felt this slowly improved.
Definitely recommend taking these! My muscle tone has improved somewhat and they have definitely aided my digestion. I understand from speaking with friends that the taste of powders is quite unpleasant, so the tablets are a good option if you can't stomach them! And they are definitely not too big!!
Big but easy to swallow very effective if taken as recommended
I take this in the morning and last thing at night to help aid my recovery after training. They have become a must have daily supplement! Anyone looking to help recover better is in need of BCAA's
Have been buying these for a couple of years now, they are an easy way to get much needed BCAAs in quickly.
I need BCAAs, and I need a lot. I already mix pre-workout and protein shakes, and get tired of mixology to be honest. Have tablets to take is great, and it helps me down some water too. Also each one tablet is 1g of BCAAs, so you don't need to even be awake to work out how many to take.Goes Well With:Creatine.
I have been taking these for around 1 month, can tell they have helped with building muscle. Bit on the large side to swallow but not too bad.Goes Well With:Water
BCAA Plus are just a little difficult to swallow as they are fairly big! But are very good if you want a boost before working out!
I recently purchased the BCAA plus tablets to try out and see if it was any benefits from taking these daily. So far I have been using them for 10-12 days and found no real benefits from using these, even though the benefits given on the packaging tells me otherwise. Goes Well With:.
Very will continue to buy productGoes Well With:Water and juice
When the other reviews say these are big, they are pretty big. My advice is - if you have had any issues in the past swallowing tablets then give them a miss. If this has never bothered you then these will be fine. I'm in the latter and they did not bother me but they are pretty big. Don't really taste of anything. Can't review their effectiveness as I have only been taking them 10 days or so. Goes Well With:Water/shake
I bought these when I began to increase the intensity of my workouts, going from cardio & body-weight focused to including more weights etc, which I do 5 days a week. I take these after a workout with a protein shake or high-protein breakfast in the mornings - In the month or so I've been taking them (coupled with the weights workouts) I've noticed much more significant change & body definition. And more importantly I don't suffer the muscle soreness post workout. I can go from one workout to the next without suffering. The one thing everyone says is true - so, if for some reason, you're not accustomed to swallowing chunks of teacher's chalk, I might suggest doing what I will do next time & getting the powder to add to a shake instead!Goes Well With:plenty of something to wash them down.
Great quality product - no awful aftertaste like you often get with the powder. Good for recovery or fasted cardio.Goes Well With:Water
I started taking these last week post workout and I've noticed a big improvement in recovery already. I don't have an issue with taking these tablets either like others seem too, so all in all good stuff so farGoes Well With:Water
Very disappointed with this, the tablets are way to big to consume, especially when you have to consume a high amount on a daily basis. I would recommend anyone to stick to the powder for easier consumption.
I have used BCAA Plus with Impact Protein only a week and I feel and see the difference . I recommend . Must buy!!!Goes Well With:Impact Protein
Not being a huge fan of popping pills I was a little hesitant to try these, especially as I had tried the powder (mix with water) version and didn't really see any results. However I was really pleasantly surprised. I take three before I leave in the morning to cycle to work, three before my training session at lunch and three before I cycle back home. I notice a big difference during my lunch time training session. These really help give me a boost ahead of that work out but most importantly I feel I can go longer and harder while I'm training. For that reason I would recommend these. However they really are a bit of a tough slog to swallow as they are hard chalky tablets. If you can get over that you should really experience the results of taking these. A tip on taking them, I actually prefer to take them with some food,or protein bar, much easier to swallow.Goes Well With:water or snack
Recovery time shortened, easy to swallow with water if used to taking tablets.Goes Well With:Water, thermopures
Hey! I take BCAA before and after workout , and I can see better results! I work out for many years so one point my body didn't react any more , he get used with the protein and I couldn't see the results I want! So after taking BCAA I see improvement on my body. Goes Well With:I am taking only with water, but if I am a bit tired with no energy I am taking it with a cup of green tea( cold no sugar, just a twist of lemon) Good luck to everyone!!!
Recently bought the tablets to help me keep my muscle mass while loose fat ready for summer whilst participating in various circuits. So far have been very effective well worth it for the price too
I love this product. As i workout twice a day, this product is a must for me as it keeps me fresh and helps prevent muscle aches. I take 2 before and after each workout. I must say i feel great each day thanks to this. Plus its cheap so you cant go wrong
Had taken these before then stopped. Can notice a difference in muscle recovery, especially when taken pre workout then in evening after workout.Goes Well With:L Glucamine.
The BCAA product is decent I guess, but I got them as a gift and I am taking them along with MyPre which also has BCAA in it, so I can't speak to the isolated effect of this product. But man, these pills are huge, its like trying to swallow a piece chalk for a blackboard. And on top of that, the pills are not smooth like e.g. the omega capsules, but rather rough and they stick to the back of the throat when you try to swallow them. If you want BCAA, GET THE POWDER, not these pills...! Goes Well With:A buddy to do the Heimlich maneuvre on you
Brilliant product, can really feel and see the difference these bad boys make! Would recommend to anyone
I read an article on these and decided to try. I am training longer and harder so I would recommend. On the negative side My Protein need to use different courier than YODEL. They just left my parcel on the back porch!
This product is great and very easy to use/prepare, as you just need to swallow a pill, no need to mix anything, and no taste at all. The pills are quite big, so if you have problems swallowing standard pills, you will need to break them to avoid any risk of choking. I had no problem swallowing them whole for now, but I would rather to swallow 2 smaller pills rather than 1 big pill as it is now. PROs: Easy to use, no taste. CONs: Size of the pill.Goes Well With:Water
Well i noticed a lot more energy recovery But the tablets are insane they are very big i had to break one tablet six times to even swallow it but if you can manage to swallow it whole they are very good delivery was very fast Goes Well With:A big neck
I found that this product was quick and easy to take with a strict diet with no effort required because of its pill form 💊 Also great for anyone making them gains with some intense cardio 💪🏻
Everything would be fine if only the pills would be smaller. Choked a few times on them! Too big:(
The tablets are just what i expected and are more than fit for purpose.
When you forget or there is no opportunity to drink plain bcaa powder, tableted form good rescues and not even feel it what it is Unflavoured . I take it with me in the car just in case.Goes Well With:Water
I rate these very highly and they're definitely a huge help after leg day. I take these most days in the morning and night especially after training and they really really help in recovery and I notice a huge difference days I take versus days I don't take. My only flaw is that the tablets themselves are quite large but once you get used to taking them they're fine and have no taste (unlike a lot of awful tasting BCAA powders!) A recommended product and one I buy time and time again.
As BCAA have a similar structure to glycogen it is easily hydrolysed releasing the amino acids for the repair and rebuilding of torn muscle fibres
Very good product, amazing effects for the price, will be purchasing again.Goes Well With:Pre workout / water
Great product for the serious bodybuilder who want to maintain there physique with a hetic life style. Absorbes fast in to muscles. Pills are big so I broke them up so it was easier to take. Goes Well With:Impact whey isolate.
used these BCAA's for a while...Pros... leaner, stronger and work outs last with no dip at the end. Cons.. tablets are large. I favored these over a powder due to not wanting the E numbers and loosing some of the serving to flavoring. Take 3 before and after training. Cheap as chips in the offer periods, and they are easily as effective taken like this as a powder and not have to worry about taste.Goes Well With:creatine (creapure) total protein
Struggle to drink liquid bcaas so these are perfect.
Easy to swallow with plenty of water, used most of the pot during an exercise break instead of during workout so didn't feel the full benefits of this. However was effective when I took a high dosage on a work out day Goes Well With:Water
Great product but tablets are too big and difficult to swallow Goes Well With:Creatine
These are amazing!!! Highly recommend. You can train as hard as you like, and you experience minimal DOMS in the following days. Allows me to train the same muscle group as often as I please.
Good for Long term use, 3 a day over a period of time Hard to swallow if you're not used to bigger pills Goes Well With:My pre workout
So I'm an individual that LOVES going hard at the gym and I go everyday(morning) consecutively for 5/6 days in a week and I found myself feeling EXTREMELY fatigued and sleepy a few hours after my workouts and sometimes not having the desire to go workout when I wake up in the morning due to DOMS or tiredness. But ever since I've started taking these for two weeks I'm no longer in fear of lifting heavy to avoid severe DOMS because I recover pretty fast and I no longer get as fatigue as before after my workouts; also I wake up feeling better too. The pill isn't as big as some describe it to be just gulp it down with lots of water and it'll be fine, I normally take two before and after my workouts and it does the trick. I HIGHLY recommend these if you experience what I described earlier. Also, you know a BCAA is good if you don't suffer from the normal leg day DOMS, with these I no longer have to wait 5 days until I can start to do cardio again but I can even do light cardio the day after leg day and sometimes even sprints. As I am cutting at the moment I see that they've helped with retaining my muscle. Goes Well With:Water.
Really easy to take down despite being quite a bulky tablet, no chemical / chalky taste and incredible value for money. MyProtein keeps me coming back!Goes Well With:Impact Whey Protein Creatine Monohydrate
This is a brilliant product and I will be buying this again
