FERMENTED BCAA FORMULA

Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) consist of three amino acids - leucine, valine, and isoleucine. BCAAs play a significant role in building and repairing muscle after a workout, and also act as a "signal" to your muscles that nutrients are available for increasing muscle mass. Muscle proteins are damaged during exercise, and muscle cells will use BCAAs to buffer the loss of certain non-essential amino acids or to provide energy during long periods of exhaustive training.*
WHAT IS BCAA POWER?
LABRADA BCAA POWER™ is a delicious BCAA powdered drink mix made using highest quality, fermented BCAA amino acids, fermented L-glutamine, plus electrolytes.
The 2:1:1 ratio BCAA blend (2 leucine: 1 isoleucine: 1 valine) contained in BCAA POWER™ has been shown to be the optimum ratio in providing both amino acids as building blocks AND taking advantage of leucine's role as an anabolic signal in the muscle cell.
Taking this BCAA combination immediately prior to, or during exercise will prime your muscles to respond to your training.
WHY FERMENTED? NOT ALL BCAAs ARE EQUAL.
Did you know that not all BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids) supplements are created equal? Not from the ratio, or additional ingredient standpoint... but from the actual QUALITY of the aminos themselves.
There are a several different ways to produce amino acids, and the most common method is a harsh acid extraction from animal products. This process, which involves hydrolysis for several hours using high heat and strong acids, creates amino acid hydrolysates that must then be filtered, dried, and refined to make them fit for human consumption. This is the most popular way to produce amino acids due to the abundance of raw materials, lower cost and ease of manufacturing. This process may produce a product that is contaminated with allergens.
The other, less common, and more expensive method of production of amino acids is accomplished through the fermentation of cultures in a pharmaceutical lab. Through this process, no animal products are used as starting materials; and no harsh chemicals or high heat treatments are used to manufacture the aminos. The result is a higher quality, allergen-free, and more efficacious amino acid product.
Labrada proudly uses fermented BCAAs and L-glutamine in BCAA POWER™, to ensure that you receive the highest quality and value for your dollar, while protecting you from contaminants found in lower quality amino acids.

Ratings & Reviews
I received the mango as a sample...The overall flavor and texture was good. It was nice and fruity which I like. I liked it so much I place an order for the mango and pineapple. I really enjoy the pineapple as well.
The flavor was difficult to get used to at first. You can tell it's fermented by the taste. I just diluted it with more water and it is tolerable but not my favorite BCAA.
Tastes amazing. I mix it with my pre-workout to really enhance my session. I've tried many other amino blends, and this has the best result/taste/price combo.
It tastes so **** good
I have had the opportunity to try all three flavors and none of them disappoint. All three are fantastic. I usually sip Amino Thrust during my workouts but these taste so good I may sub them in. I add this into my postwork out shake which consistent of unflavored or vanilla supps. The added flavor from the BCAA is amazing. Its like drinking a fruit smoothy. The amino breakdown is great as well. It has a higher amount then in most other powders and having the glutamine added in has allowed me to stop adding it separately. Add to that the electrolyte complex and it is great for recovery. I would recommend this to anyone looking to add a BCAA either to trigger protein synthesis or to get more protein building blocks without the calories.
Having a hard time drinking enough water, the only way I can keep myself properly hydrated is by drinking flavored water. The strawberry kiwi flavor by Labrada is refreshing to sip on throughout my workout. I also add in two scoops into my gallon water jug and carry it around all day. Being a marathon runner, I put two scoops of BCAA into my Camelbak and I am able to cruise through the miles with ease.
I received two trial packets of the Pina Colada flavor and it's fantastic! I train early in the morning and this is a great BCAA to drink during my workouts. It's not too sweet, the Pina Colada flavor is spot on, and it's very refreshing. It mixes up very easily. No floaters or clumps. It doesn't have a lot of artificial coloring and has no weird aftertaste. I like the BCAA profile, and it's an awesome addition to my workout. I really look forward to drinking this. Great product!
Great flavor (orange Mango), smooth and not too much food color. I love the bcaa ratio and the addition of electrolytes. Works very well.
I received a trial packet of the Strawberry Kiwi flavor . I admit, the taste is on point. It tastes like strawberry kiwi. Excellent taste. Not chalky, and no after taste. If in the future, I decide to add BCAAs to my regimen, I will definitely go with this one. Great taste.
The flavor is great. I received 2 trial packs for a total of 10 servings and I have been very pleased.
