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.
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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
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.
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!

Dissolves quickly, it does have a bit of a chemical flavour to it

This product is causing me headache, I am not sure if it is the bcaa or the brand. I bought different brand and I am waiting for it to arrive and try bcaa again

I've just started on this for over a week now and the difference is noticeable. As a pre and during workout drink, with only water - definitely could work out harder and longer. Don't think I could have survived my interval workouts with 25% added weight without the boost. Could hardly taste the product in plain water so not sure what the complaints about taste is about!
