High Leucine Based BCAA's

Overall:

5

Mixability:

5

Taste:

Effectiveness:

These are great higher leucine dosed amino acid tabs than the regular versions, i find leucine to be the most effective of the 3 branched chain aminos as it stimulates muscle growth, i find whey to be an effective protein for building lean muscle mass as it is rich in leucine. I like to add in BCAA's when dieting to allow for the preservation of lean muscle mass as i lower my caloric intake to support fat loss, i feel these work just as good as the powdered form for energy and endurance but have to be taken before training due to the slower release / absorption vs a powdered form. if you found any value in this review then please use code: GEOFF - RDT (no space in between dash and letters) and all in capital letters at checkout to get up to 85% off order depending on current offers.

This is genuine. I'm a regular my protein customer and swear by their protein powders. But these BCAA tablets almost left me unconcious. I had one table lodge in my throat and no amount of water would take it down. Struggling to breath, I stuck two fingers down my throat and threw it up (and my dinner) after 3 mins of a struggle. Never again.

Like many of the other reviews I've seen on here I almost died several times with these. Granted I am not the worlds best when it comes to taking tablets but these are ridiculous. I'm recommended to take 4 of these at night along with others but nearly every time I choke on them. I even tried cutting them in half but as they are so thick this didn't help too much. I've taken recommendations from others on here and I'm now going to have the powder. I've heard the unflavoured one is awful but I've had the tropical which I think is very nice! I can't comment in terms of the results as I gave up after a week as it was too much to go through every night (choking is not exactly an enjoyable experience). Like others as well I'd prefer the tablets to be smaller and just have more of them.

Im normally pretty good with tablets but these are way to hard to swallow. I choke on them, if i break them in half they scratch my throat. I have to chew them up (tastes bad) then drink water.

Haven't really noticed any difference at all from when I didn't take them, perhaps I'll notice the difference when I stop...if I do, I'll do another review. I've taken some big pills though, generally they make it easy on you and make the pills with nice rounded corners and edges to make it easier to swallow, these are the biggest pills I've ever come across and they have sharp edges. They're definitely pills you feel going down your throat and there are times where they have made me choke so got to gulp down something thicker than water to dislodge them and send them on their way. Word of advice, bite them in half as you're swilling water round your mouth or take them with protein shakes.

Very convenient but why so much B6 Vitamin?

Overall:

3

These are genuinely very good. I'm getting all the great benefits of BCAAs and I don't have to carry around and mix powder all the time. So why three stars you say? Well annoyingly and for some reason beyond my comprehension, MyProtein deem it necessary to add 100% of our RI of B6 Vitamin to these PER SERVING. For me, since I take three servings a day, it means I'm getting 300% of my recommended B6 vitamin intake a day. And, since it's just sensible to take a multivitamin especially when you lift, I'm getting another 150% from my Multivitamin. 450& of the recommended B6 vitamin is pointless, at the least, and dangerous for blood thiningg, at the most? Why? What's the reason for the added B6 vitamin? Why would people want B6 vitamin with their BCAAs? I couldn't find any evidence that B6 vitamin enahnces the effect of BCAAs in any way, so it just seems a case of "common practice", which isn't very beneficial. Anyway that's why the three stars, for the utterly unnecessary B6 overdose.

I've read some reviews of people being able to swallow these whole. You'd need a gold medal to be able to swallow these tablets while they are HUGE. I take vitamins and other tablets frequently but these are ridiculous and they are so sharp.

Simple to take yes they are big so if you don't like taking pills then go for the powder form don't give it a bad rating for me it's easier than doing more mixing so yer dog pills are just quicker and simple

I have tried taking these tablets whole, broken in half and ground up. They are almost impossible to take without choking. They do what they're supposed to but need to be smaller and easier to swallow. Either as a soft gel or capsule. I'd rather have to take 6 smaller tablets than risk choking every time I take them.

Like trying to swallow a grape

No idea of the effectiveness as ive only just started trying to take them but these tablets are huge, if you can get them down and keep them down then good on you. Taking upto 12 of these a day - theres no chance. I struggle with 3 and dread taking them. Might blend them up and put in a smoothie from now on. There are least 2.5 times the size of a multivitamin tablet and get lodged in the throat. Have thrown it up a few times as well and they don't taste great. May I suggest you cut the size of the tablets down!!!

These have been a life saver for the Day after ( and day after that) muscle soreness! Really make a difference and let me get back to training the day after a good workout. HOWEVER, this is the first time i was buying aminos and didn't know whether to choose powder or tablets. I thought the tablets would be quicker to consume, but they are HUGE and you're taking 3 at a time! Definitely the powder form for me next time!

These tablets are way way too big. Even breaking them into 3 pieces I couldn't swallow them. I tried crushing them between two spoons but it was both messy and made me feel like a character out of breaking bad. I've no ordered the powder and it's much much better

These are nicknamed dog biscuits because they are so large to swallow. If you're looking at getting BCAAs go and get the powdered version. At least then you can mix with your protein shake post-workout. These are hard to swallow, hard to cut and hard to chew because the taste is so horrible.

I have always been active but now I have notched it up a gear I wanted to reach out to a supplement to enhance my training efforts. After being recommended BCAA's I decided on tablet form as I am fusy with drinks flavours. The tablets are big, but easy to swallow and tasteless. I have been using for 3 weeks now and am seeing definate results and have very few muscle aches compared to previously!
