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.

This is more of a question, but has anyone experienced any stomach discomfort when taking this product, bloating, gas, etc.?

i started taking this two weeks ago so I cant comment on the results just yet. However, the one that is unflavored tastes terrible. its super bitter. its really just not pleasant. next time I will get a flavored one! Good news is I have had zero weird side effects and I usually tend to get an upset stomach so that's great! :)

I can't describe its taste. don't know what it is, it's just the opposite from good. really difficult for me to swallow it.

I ordered the Orange flavor, was a bit skeptical but this mixes so well and the taste is GREAT! I've been mixing about 1 - 1.5 scoops before workouts and have noticed a considerable difference in energy levels.

Love this product. The flavor is great, easy to mix and drink. Seems to prevent post workout muscle soreness.

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!

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!!!
