5.0 out of 5 stars Supp stack
This is the cheapest I have found these anywhere!
Definitely recommend adding them to your 'stack' good bit of kit.

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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy some eggs instead, 28 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb product! A must buy!, 11 July 2014

This review is from: Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000 Pack of 200 Capsules (Personal Care)
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!

This review is from: Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000 Pack of 200 Capsules (Personal Care)
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.

This review is from: Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000 Pack of 200 Capsules (Personal Care)
the caps are 1000mg, which is slightly less than others, for more spread out consumption! buy for users who eat little and often
