MET-Rx® Hardcore BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids) are the building blocks of protein which are of special importance to body builders and power athletes.BCAAs L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine make up about one third of the total protein content of human muscle tissue.Protein is essential in building lean muscle, strength and optimizing recovery and is also one of the most important nutrients for health, growth and well-being, especially when training. Even people trying to lose excess fat are aware of the excellent benefits of following a high protein, low carb diet.Around 33% of muscle protein consists of BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids). Even an amount of moderate exercise can cause levels of BCAAs to drop rapidly resulting in muscle tissue breakdown (catabolism), and fatigue. Research shows that athletes who supplement their diet with BCAAs can experience increased muscle growth and strength and an improved muscle power output. Most athletes feel a substantial decrease in the amount of post-exercise muscle tiredness soon after beginning Hardcore BCAA supplementation. This can mean a faster recovery from exercise which in turn will then allow you to feel ready to train sooner.
L-Leucine, Rice Powder, L-Isoleucine, Capsule Shell (Gelatine), L-Valine, Anti Caking Agents (Calcium Silicate, Silicon Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate), Vitamin E (as dl-Alpha Tocopherly Acetate). Contains fish, soya and sulphites.See all Product Description

What it doesn't say anywhere other than the back of the label and qualified by the little star/disclaimer next to the dose on the front, is that this is the dose per 6 capsules, i.e. 300mg per capsule. So I've only got 1/6 of the amount per capsules that I was expecting! Therefore this seems rather poor value as I've now only got 1/6 of what I was expecting!
The usual most common 2:1:1 mix isn't adhered to either, instead, this one is approximately 1:1.5:0.5. The combination as per the label is as follows, per 6 capsules
L-Isoleuicne 630mg (105 mg per capsule)
L-Leucine 900mg (150mg per capsule)
L-Valine 270mg (45mg per capsule)
However, Valine is one of the amino acids included in this group and it is known to help tissue repair/renewal, like skin and muscle. So strangely enough, while I was taking it and going down, down, down with serotonin my recent injury was actually getting significantly better and is now completely healed.
I don't know whether to be happy or not with this product. I intend to continue taking it, because my elbow needs extra help to recover from its recent injury, but I think I will just have to take extra care to balance things out a bit more with carbs.
I suppose my advice would be, if you have any kind of insomnia, take care when taking this product, as it lowers brain serotonin even more.
Since I cleaned out my gut of Candida, my migraines have stopped and this product seems to be really doing the trick. My weight is stable and I've not had any more muscle wasting. I only take two a day, in the morning, but they help all my other aminos to work better, especially with regard to joint regeneration. Cannot believe how much stronger my back is since addressing this need for gelatine in my body.
Plus the other downside to things like these is you'll never know if your really benefitting from them
Probably a placebo effect if anyone says different
