Product Description

Size: 200 Capsules

Product Description

Optimum Nutrition's BCAA 1000 Caps contains a potent balance of Branched Chain Amino Acids which are building blocks of muscle mass and size. There are three Branched Chain Amino Acids (L-Valine, L-Leucine, and L-Isoleucine) in every serving. The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), so named because of their branched chemical structure, are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds.

Product Description

L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine are commonly grouped together and referred to as Branched Chain Amino Acids, or BCAAs, because of their unique branched chemical structure. BCAAs are essential, meaning that they must be consumed through the diet, since the human body can not make them from other compounds. BCAAs have long been used by strength-training and endurance athletes alike to activate muscle synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown caused by intense training.

wish i had done some googling before buying this. 1 pill contains 250mg Leucine, 125mg of Isoleucine and 125mg of Valine.
An egg. JUST ONE - has 4233Mg of Leucine ( 16x more than the pill ),
2754mg of Isoleucine ( 22 times more than one pill ) and 3377mg of Valine ( 27 times more than this pill )
Just to make it easy let's say an egg, on average contains 20X more BCAA than one of these pills. so eating a quarter of an egg a day would be equivalent to 5 of these pills ( more than double the stated serving size ).
An egg costs about 30 pence ( that's a good organic one ), quarter would cost roughly 7p ( so five times cheaper than buying this ) ( all figures are approx )
Now who eats a quarter of an egg? I eat several every day and besides BCAA i get vitamins and minerals as well as essential fats.
If you are a vegan or something maybe this is for you. otherwise, buy some eggs.
Not saying it's a bad product but you can get the same stuff from a natural food source ( God knows how this is manufactured ) for a fraction of the price.

You have to read the labels carefully here - to get 1000mg (1g) you actually have to take 2 caps, so to get 10-15g (which is a pretty standard intake) you'd need to take 20-30 caps in a single sitting. If you do this 3 times per day, you'll be consuming 60-90 per day and have run out in 12-17 days. Better go for a powder if intake is high.

These are a brilliant addition to anyone's supplement collection, I have only recently started using these and the way I workout has completely changed, these reduce fatigue so much, I can workout for a good 90 minute session at 100% now whereas I used to get warm out after about 50 minutes. Highly recommend!

Not the greatest value for money, despite the 'Mega-Size' packaging.

Super misleading: the pack says 1000mg caps x 400, but when you receive them and then look at the back you'll see that to get 1000mg you need to take 2 caps...

You have to take 8 at a time (a normal weight-training BCAA pre-load dose would be 4g), so just don't be fooled by the numbers...
400 caps maybe, but it's actually 50 servings if you're taking them pre-workout. FYI.

Great no after taste, easy to digest.
I use them before and after the gym, mix with whey or take alone.
Nothing to dislike, had good results with them.
