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.

I tried the unflavored, it smells like rotten corn and tastes like medicine mixed with semolina. If taste is what you're after optimum has all kinds of tasty pre workouts and BCAA products. As far as I can tell these are quality BCAAs I drink them mixed in with gatorade prior to a workout. It feels like I can lift more, longer when I mix these in my pre-workout vs. when I don't. Overall, mixes well, I never get sediment in my shakers.

Love all Optimum products! They really take the time to make sure their products are quality - something you don't find everywhere in the supplement industry. Love the BCAAs during workouts and really helps with recovery time!

Great alternative to the high priced flavored versions. I use this when fasting and during training with some sodium and a little Mio. Great product, I should be looking like Steve soon!
