Why did we design BCAA 4:1:1?
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are essential amino acids that can't be synthesised by the body, this makes them an essential element to anyone’s diet, but particularly for those who are training. 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.

i never write reviews ever but i thought this one needed one! i got berry blast and it tastes AMAZING, dont know why people are moaning about the berry blast taste but i love it, it tastes just like squash and has really helped me with my workouts as it gives me loads of energy and i dont ache the day after too which is a bonus as i go to the gym like 5 times a week! YOU GUYS NEED TO GET ON IT! Its great for girls too to get our lean muscle! i have noticed such a increase in lean muscle and fat reduction (obviously healthy diet is key too) i just love it and such good value!!! another great product! i have nothing negative to say at all!!!Goes Well With:water ! :)
The taste of the berry blast BCA's i honestly couldnt stomach but my dad on the other hand loved them. mixed reviews from my householdGoes Well With:death
good product, nice taste and easy to mix . does what it says on the packaging
I've used MP products for a while, and have used their BCAA's for some time also. I used to dread taking them but recently they must have improved the recipe because I'm actually able to drink the berry flavour during my workout. I advise mixing with water and shaking A LOT then leaving to settle, then add the remaining water. Goes Well With:GAINZ!
Sent back as return and still no refund. Second time it's happened. These guys are cowboys
Have always got these Amino acids and have always been fine, got the last pouch a week ago and it's un drinkable, the taste has changed and it tastes almost mouldy, do not buy, it's horrible.
I love this product and hate going the gym without it. Will continue to buy as long as I can keep training. Not very happy with delivery or customer care after receiving delivery as my bag was pierced and was very difficult to get information to care teamGoes Well With:Maltodextrin. I train early morning on empty stomach so use both together to fuel my workout
I did my research on BCAA's and was sceptical that these would actually do anything but I must say they work! I am way less tired after the gym and my muscles sores or DOMS have nearly gone completely, even after a really good session. This enables me to do more days in a row at the gym which can only be helping me build muscle. I am currently on a cut and have lost 10lbs but a lifting more! That must be a result! Goes Well With:Water at Breakfast, lunch, while doing a session and after a session.
This is the first time I purchase amino-acids, and I was really sceptical about it. Most reviews I read about bcaa powder, is that it has a strong and not very nice flavour, but I think that Myrpotein has worked really hard on the flavour and I can garantee that it tastes great now. The flavour I chose is the berry blast flavour and it tastes amazing, as if I was literally drinking red-berries drink (and I am very picky when it comes to artificial flavours). The other great thing about it is that, even though I have only been drinking it for five days, I have noticed how fast my muscles are recovering from my workouts. Normally my muscles would be sore for minimum four days. However, since I started drinking this bcaa, my muscles are completely recovered two days after the workout. The only thing that really upset me, is the fact that the bag was not properly sealed, and when I opened my box, there was bcaa all over the other products. And a lot of the powder got wasted. I just would like to suggest Myprotein to check their sealing methods, other than that I am very happy with the quality of the product. Goes Well With:Cold water if you are cutting, but if calories is not an issue, it tastes pretty good with cold milk. And it makes a nice milkshake if you blend it. Great for avoiding sweet cravings.
Good BCAA like usual BCAA 2:1:1(you can read my review on BCAA 2:1:1). "+" for the fact that there are tastes of "Tropica"l and "Berry Blast" in 1 kg. But I still prefer the classic formula of BCAA 2:1:1.Goes Well With:citrulline malate + beta alanine + Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG)
Tastes pretty bad. Once blended it'll mix in ok. Too soon to tell effectiveness. Would not buy flavoured againGoes Well With:Water
This is utterly distigusting. I never waste food but nearly threw my porridge down the toilet after adding the blue raspberry flavour BCAA to it. Grim. The flavour tastes awful and the powder is an unnerving shade of bright bubblegum blue when mixed in to things- is this product even safe for human consumption?! I sincerely hope so as I know how important BCAAs are as a supplement.....maybe I'll order some tablets with a different flavour next time...Goes Well With:A dustbin
Well what can i say the results i have personally had with this product are phenomenal ok the flavor is not the greatest but it is palatable and does not taste chemically. I am doing Keto at the moment and train heavy at least 3 times a week. So i only mix 1 scoop (5g) into a 2l jug on a non training day and 2 scoops (10g) on training day I use a low does as i train early in the morning and usually incorporate intermittent fasting during my diet with a 16/8 ratio and the low does keeps me in ketosis and prevents muscle wastage. My results have been amazing it has hindered the dreaded keto flue and my strength and muscle gains in a period of 5 weeks have been incredible. Since i tore my rotator cuff i had to start my bench press at half weight and in a space of 5 weeks i have added 40Kg to my 1RM. And i believe that incorporating this product into my daily diet has enabled me to gain my strength back. A 1Kg bag should last me between 100-150 days on this dosage I do not see the need to upp my dosage at this moment in time so this product is truly value for money.Goes Well With:Creapure Creatine Mono-hydrate is a must i mix 5g with my BCAA 4:1:1 in a half gallon jug at least once a day and have found this to be a potent combination.
Mixes very well taste great good value
Unfortunately for my own preference the taste was terrible and I was unable to enjoy the product.
I've been using this while on a calorie deficit, seems to do the trick. As other have mentioned it doesn't mix well. I found that if you leave it 25-30 mins it will dissolve fully.
Pros: I tried Berry Blast. Not too sweet. Taste isn't too overpowering. Cons: Doesn't mixes fine. You need to stir, wait before it sits down and stir it again 4-5 times.
Really good product, however not a big fan of berry flavour. 1 serving (2 scoops) mixed in 2l slightly too sweet.
I was usually using the bcaa tablets but wanted to try the powder. But I tried to mixed it didn't mix stirred 2 mins didn't work. Tried to drink taste was horrible. Wasted money. Ordered the tablets again. Tablets are the best.
I really like this BCAA 4:1:1. I m using it during the training and after. Highly recommended!!! Btw dont take Unflavoured BCAA, because it is disgusting.
