Great product, definitely helps for recovery after heavy workouts and supplements muscle growth. Although next time I'm going for powder option of BCAA since it's much easier and more pleasant to take for me personally rather than capsules. For the ratio this product offers, in order to get 5g of BCAA you need to take 5 capsules at a time, so if you're taking pre and post...

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy some eggs instead
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 )

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy some eggs instead, 28 Aug. 2014

This review is from: Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000 Pack of 400 Capsules (Personal Care)
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.

This review is from: Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000 Pack of 400 Capsules (Personal Care)
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 product, definitely helps for recovery after heavy workouts and supplements muscle growth. Although next time I'm going for powder option of BCAA since it's much easier and more pleasant to take for me personally rather than capsules. For the ratio this product offers, in order to get 5g of BCAA you need to take 5 capsules at a time, so if you're taking pre and post workout or even more throughout the day, that might be not the most pleasant thing to do (and if you open capsules the taste is not nice - as it's not designed for that obviously). So it all depends on your goals and preferences - this is very personal!

I would stick to buying expensive whey isolate with a decent BCAA profile. It will be more concentrated than these capsules.
