BCAA 1000 Caps

Amino Acid Capsules for Repairing Muscle*
Support New Lean Muscle Growth and Reduce Muscle Breakdown*
8.9  out of 10  (397 Reviews)

Product Overview

BCAA 1000 contains a balance of Branched Chain Amino Acids, which are building blocks of muscle mass and size. Metabolized directly in the muscle, BCAAs may improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acid groups for repair and rebuilding.* The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), 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 (reducing muscle breakdown) and anabolic (muscle building) effects.*

I chose to try these when the brand that I normally take were out of stock. I tried taking 4.5 grams for preworkout about 45 min before I began my workout. By the time I had started my 2nd set in I felt so exhausted, as if I hadn't taken any pills at all. My muscles felt so spent already. I know I gave my body enough time to absorb the stuff but sorry to say I had a rough workout. I took 4 grams after my workout but I didn't even know if it was worth it. I bought the 30 serving size bottle, but I have to say that I didn't bother finishing it off. All I can say is that I can't recommend this product, since for the few workouts that I took this my body felt no different than if I skipped taking them at all. I had to go back to the previous brand I bought to avoid my muscles from feeling exhausted early into the workouts.

Huge fan. I take after workouts and before bed in addition to the BCAAs in my protein powder. Big difference in recovery.

Honestly, I bought the 30 serving bottle a while ago just to get my shopping cart total about $50 for free shipping. I would rather get something else than pay for shipping costs. I used them with the belief that they wouldn't do anything, but I couldn't have been more wrong. I took them post workout and felt less sore after my workouts and after I stopped taking them I felt like they really helped my overall gains during that one month of supplementing with them. I would recommend the 30 serving bottle to anyone skeptical of BCAAs or anyone who just wants to try them out for the first time. Also, this method of consumption is much more affordable than most powders. Solid product.

This product is absolute garbage and complete waste of money... I don't know how people claim that it helps them, hey must be dreamers... I train hard and eat extremely well (high budget meals). Even if that helps (which I don't believe at all) it must not be very visible...Paying £20 for non-visible change is not worth it

I take two of these with 3 grams of glutamine and 5 grams of creatine, prior to working out. Gives me plenty of energy and a great pump.

At first i didn't think it would make a difference but it really did. I'm less sore after working out and usually my legs would be dead the day after some heavy workouts but gradually after taking this product i can sincerely tell you that the day after i don't feel sore anymore and if i do it's very little compared to before. Would definitely recommend!
