The True Strength of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)

L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, And L-Valine are commonly grouped together and referred to as Branched Chain Amino Acids, or BCAAs, because of their unique branched chemical structure. BCAAs are essential, meaning that they must be consumed through the diet, since the human body cannot make them from other compounds. BCAAs have long been used by strength-training and endurance athletes alike to activate protein synthesis and reduce muscle breakdown caused by intense training. Our Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder is made using a proprietary process that mixes easily and keeps the BCAAs suspended longer so they do not readily settle to the bottom of the glass. Because if you can't drink your BCAAs, they can't help your performance.

Suggested Use

Consume Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, and/or immediately after workouts.

Spoon Stirred: Add 1 heaping teaspoon of Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder to a glass filled with 8-10 oz. of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 15-20 seconds.

Shaker: Just add 1 heaping teaspoon of Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder to your shaker cup filled with 8-10 oz. of your favorite beverage. Cover and shake for about 10 seconds to ensure a good mix. Tip: Try adding instantized BCAA 5000 Powder to your favorite protein powder, meal replacement product, or weight-gainer shake.

Great results, dont expect good taste though.

Posted by Reviewer1949759 on May 27, 2012

This product work extremely well. I have been taking 10-15g a day for 9 months. I have not been able to workout, due to a new job. However, I have not lost any muscle mass. Have maintained same body composition! So, this product has stimulated muscle building as it is supposed to do. As for the taste, all unflavored BCAA taste horrible. I add a EmergenC packet and a flavored NO product (Fruit punch flavored Super Charge by Labrada) to it, so I barely taste it. I get more bang for the buck and the results I need. The micronization of this product works as well. I have tried other BCAAs and usually have powder settling in the bottom of my mixer cup. With this one I don't have that.

Nice BCAA

Posted by saulius1977 on Aug 14, 2012

I love this product. I drink mine mixed with water in a shaker while I'm at the gym, and I can tell that there's a huge difference in how long I'm able to workout. The fruit punch tastes great and is especially refreshing.. Also cheaper than other BCAA powders I've tried. I'd definitely recommend it!

One of the best

Posted by 5518062310457587650 on Nov 08, 2013

I've tried almost all the amino acid products available, but this one is definitely the best value. It helps build muscle, maintain muscle, and increases energy, pumps, and stamina. I've tried more expensive BCAA's, but keep coming back to this one.

Oh man!!!What a taste.

Posted by Reviewer1422902 on Oct 12, 2011

WHat a horrible taste. Even if its unflavored! They say it has great importance overall but man, this ruins the taste of my protein shake. I know taste is not the point for this kinda product but come on. Still, hoping it to be good for results.
