Definitely noticed a difference in my recovery from work outs. Also I've had higher energy levels the next day too.Only Issue is that this is the worst tasting stuff i have ever put in my mouth. I personally don't put it in my shake because I enjoy my shakes. I poor some of my shake in a shot glass and go that route lol. I started with water and that was worse. It wont always fully dissolve so you may find yourself spoonin it out or taking a second shot. Just make sure you have a chaser! lolAll in all its a good product. BCAAs and Glutamine in one. Plus the powder form works faster than the pill form.

Comments about BodyTech Bcaa & Glutamine - 6.9 Ounces Powder:

As others have mentioned, the taste is downright awful - but with time you get used to it. After a particularly hard workout or long run I find myself actually craving this supplement. Rapidly aids in recovery once the Glutamine and branched chain amino acids hit your system. It almost gives off a secondary pump. Next day - I feel strong instead of sore.

    Comments about BodyTech Bcaa & Glutamine - 6.9 Ounces Powder:

    Taste: I read a lot about the taste being not so good so I tried my own mix. I use vanilla almond milk along with vanilla protein mix and the taste just blends into the vanilla. I also add cinnamon for taste and like it.

    Results: I work out 3 to 4 times a week. I have noticed my small muscles building up faster than ever. I do moderate weight training and have been doing the same machines for a year. I started using BCAA a month ago and noticed in week 2 that my muscles were harder and bigger.

    Recovery: I use to get muscle soreness after workout and have not noticed them since taking BCAA. I would have to say that it has helped with recovery.

      I use this intra-workout. It mixes well and you can easily mask the taste with water flavor mixes if you're into that sort of thing. Only thing is you may need more than the recommended serving depending on your size, goals, and your workout duration/intensity ... But its decently priced so no worries about that here.

        I use this product in my post-workout shake. The protein powders I use are Body-Tech Pro 24 Chocolate and Musclepharm Vanilla.

        I see a lot of complaints about bad tatse, which, I do not agree with. I don;t think it wrecks the taste of my protein shake that I also mix creatine in. You can tell a difference in recovery after intense workouts.

        I am sure that if this product was taken by itself it might be a little bitter, but, I CAN'T REALLY TELL A DIFFERENCE IN MY SHAKES.

              I never miss a lifting night in the gym, but cardio is another story. I've ramped up my cardio, so I can be ripped for summer. Between wanting to retain muscle and wanting the post-cardio pain to end I thought I'd try VS' BCAA/Glutamine mix. I love it. I am not achy and my muscles are intact. I mix it with ON Casein Blueberries & Cream, so taste is not an issue. I highly recommend it.

              Comments about BodyTech Bcaa & Glutamine - 6.9 Ounces Powder:

              Simply put, I love this product. It's one of the few products on the market that has a combo of glutamine and bcaa only. I recently bought a bag of cheap protein which has been rather ineffective in helping me recover from my workouts. Adding a scoop of this product to my shake has made a world of difference in my recovery. Beware that glutamine and bcaas taste quite bad so you better have something strong to mix it in to mask the flavor. Otherwise, this product is very effective and the price is great. A must buy for people who use low quality protein but still need the extra recovery.

              After reading the reviews its true that this stuff taste awful but does it work? Well, I am not sure only time will tell but I do drink this with flavored tea in the morning when I have little time to make a protein shake and during my workouts. After my workout, I have a protein shake (ON, electrolytes, MSM) but the research and the reviews do make it convincing and knowing that I'm trying to take care of myself in a healthy way does the body good. I did try some of the suggestions of how to tone down the taste and adding Crystal Light is the best. I don't stack it to my protein shake because my body-weight is just 155 pounds and wouldn't want to flush it away.

              Comments about BodyTech Bcaa & Glutamine - 6.9 Ounces Powder:

              After taking this product for a week and a half, I am starting to notice a better recovery along reduced muscle soreness. The effect did not take on immediately; I needed to induce this supplement for at least a week to notice results. But the results are outstanding. For instance, when I bike hard for a few miles, my thighs start to get weary and sore, but has not since I have been using the supplement BCAA/Glutamine by Vitamin-Shoppe.

              Can't drink it straight with water-need to mix it with something else to overide the bitter taste -but not a big thing at all.

                  Alright so I decided to add some more supplements to my diet, and figured this would be a good product to pick. Also, for the first time i bought ON whey isolate double rich chocolate. I don't know if it was the bcaa, protien, or fact that i used cold water (usually use milk), but this protein shake tast4ed absolutely disgusting. i usually have no problem drinking protein with water, but this was just super disgusting, so i figured it had to be the bcaa. So unless its better with milk, based on that alone makes it hard to even wanna keep continuiting this product. But the other reviews say this stuff is great and gives results so i'm going to continue taking it, just gonna have to suck it up.

                          I took this a rec from the Vitamin Shoppe rep at my local store. I asked for something to help in muscle recovery. She recommended this and said to take it once before workout and once after. It has been excellent. I have been taking it with N.O. Explode for about 5 weeks and added PowerFULL about 3 weeks ago. Great results so far. More energy, better work outs, quicker recovery, seeing more muscle tone, I have burned fat, and gained muscle, etc. As far as taste... yeah it's gross, but I mix it with the N.O. Explode fruit punch before workout and after workout I mix it into a fruit smoothie I make and I can't taste it at all.

                              I mixed this with gatorade and sip during workout. I must say, it really helped me with muscle pain & soreness. I normally lift 40lbs per arm and with this, I lift 65lbs. I had the best workout ever. I'm definitely stocking this! The only downside is the taste. But overall a really good product for it price!

                                  Definitely noticed a difference in my recovery from work outs. Also I've had higher energy levels the next day too.Only Issue is that this is the worst tasting stuff i have ever put in my mouth. I personally don't put it in my shake because I enjoy my shakes. I poor some of my shake in a shot glass and go that route lol. I started with water and that was worse. It wont always fully dissolve so you may find yourself spoonin it out or taking a second shot. Just make sure you have a chaser! lolAll in all its a good product. BCAAs and Glutamine in one. Plus the powder form works faster than the pill form.

                                          Though most whey protiens provide glutamine in them, this product provides and extra dose of strength for your workout. I notice a difference in my nuscle recovery if I didnt get this in. Most people say drinking this "straight" tastes nasty- well, it's not so bad when mixed with gatorade. It actually tastes like Tylenol dissolved in water (which is what my mom gave us when we were sick and they didnt have childrens tylenol at the time so i had an advantage on the taste)-

                                                  This is a great product especially when combined with Bodytech creatine and your favorite protein powder for post workout recovery. I have experienced noticeable results and feel less sore than I should the day after a tough workout. In contrast to what the first reviewer wrote, it mixes very well. I only wish they offered a larger size along with a discount for buying in bulk.

                                                  I recommend this product. I put it in my post work out shake. A tip for you and everyone else. Take your creatine pre workout and the bcaa after. The body has a hard time absorbing both at the same time.

                                                      I was extremely satisfied with the results i saw in my lifting after using this product. I was recovering quicker after my hard workout days and i was seeing bigger gains in my physique. It is fairly priced, but i think for 16 bucks it could have a few more servings.

I don't feel as sore the next day after a hard workout. I usually throw in a scoop with my protein shake as a quick way of getting what I need!
