Product Overview

Optimum Nutrition's Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder provides a 5000 mg blend of the three Branched Chain Amino Acids (L-Valine, L-Leucine and L-Isoleucine) in every serving. The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's), so named because of their unique branched chemical structure, are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds. In recent times, these amino acids have been investigated for their potential anticatabolic (preventing muscle breakdown) and anabolic (muscle building) effects.*

NOTE: Serving sizes are larger in flavored versions due to additional ingredients to enhance taste.

Tastes great, mixes well. I use this during my workouts and when I have a meal larger than usual and do not need the added protein powder calories.

I'm going to be completely honest: BLECK! This thing stuff like the unflavored medicine the doctors made me take when I was little. It's terrible. I tried drinking it with water or juice pre workout and it is EXTREMELY difficult. My gag reflex just says no. It even ruined the flavor of my post workout shake. I had to at least give it 5/10 though because it does work pretty decently. I noticed my workouts go much better if I take it pre and post workout. It doesn't do a whole lot in terms of reducing DOMs though. I think I'll try Pro BCAA by ON next.

The product works good for how I use it. They are unflavored so I can mix them with additional flavored BCAA's and save cost. I was disappointed that there we was not any scoop that came with the powder. Overall I am satisfied.

I consider ON products one of the best in the market. However, the flavor of this BCAA powder does not really taste like fruit punch. It smells like bubble gum and it tastes like bubble gum with fruit punch. I also tried the American version of BCAA Gold Standard (Fruit Punch) and that really tasted like fruit punch. It would have been nice if they used the same flavor for this product as well. The good thing is that it has a little sour taste which makes it better.

Bitter bitter bitter bitter. I mixed the Unflavored BCAA5000 power with my usual drink, which is almond milk, one scoop of my favorite vanilla whey protein power and 2 tablespoons of peanut butter powder. I usually love this vanilla/peanut butter powder combination, but with the BCAA5000 powder added, it was so bitter I could hardly choke it down. I forced myself to drink it, because I had no other protein source available at work that day. For over 4 hours, I couldn't get the bitter taste out of my mouth, even though I tried eating several other foods to get the bitter taste to go away. Yuck!!!

The unflavored flavor is a strange mixture of bitter/sour. It's not undrinkable but it's not pleasant. By chance I mixed it with some powdered glutamine, which has no taste for me, and the bad taste, I think, disappeared. If you want to go the unnatural route you can also squirt some Mio or squirt koolaid in your mix but then you might as well buy the flavored versions.
