By Betancourt7 Reviews
Expiration Date: Dec 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

You're holding the newest supplement technology!
Any serious bodybuilding athlete knows about the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine, and valine. But never before have they been "super-charged" by combining them in a 3:1 ratio with glutamine and compressed into a bioavailable yet candy-like format so small you can fit two dozen of them in your hand. That's new Chewies BCAA Micros, created in Betancourt's own 140,000-square-foot cGMP manufacturing facility.
To build lots of muscle, your muscle cells must synthesize lots of protein. The BCAAs are building blocks in protein synthesis. But they do more than this. They also regulate it. For instance, supplementation with BCAAs has been shown to activate some of the same enzymes believed to be responsible for the muscle-building effects of resistance exercise (1). Other studies suggest that BCAA supplementation may exercise-induced muscle damage and soreness (2) and reduce levels of perceived exertion (3) so that working out doesn't feel as tough. To make new Chewies BCAA Micros even more powerful, we combined leucine, isoleucine and valine with glutamine. Supplementation with glutamine may spare the BCAAs from premature degradation.
Even the pros get cravings for candy. Now you can satisfy them with a nutrient-dense, "physique-friendly" supplement that is slated to become the world's favorite "Muscle Candy", new Chewies Micros!

Muscle protein synthesis is a 24/7 process. So you can supplement with Chewies BCAA Micros any time of day. However, if your goal is to protect your muscles from exercise-induced damage or soreness, or enhance exercise-induced increases in muscle protein synthesis, then take 1-2 servings (1-2 scoops) of Chewies BCAA Micros before and/or after exercise. Chew each table thoroughly before swallowing with water.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Love these.. taste is NOT as good as the glutamine ones.. but still okay if you don't mind the typical BCAA taste. Admittedly they are pretty addictive, hard to have just one scoop.
Strange BCAA taste.. Something different I suppose. Still fairly sweet. Not as nice as the Glutamine ones..
