    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.

    When I use this product I just add it to water rather than juice or sports drinks. However, although the instructions on the bottle say add one scoop to 6-8oz of water it is extremely hard to put down. Unless you use at least 20oz of water to one scoop it tastes like you're drinking straight Windex. Other than that it gets the job done.

      Comments about BodyTech BCAA and Glutamine - 6.9 Ounces Powder:

      I was looking for a supplement to help aid recovery after the workout and was recommended to try a BCAA and Glutamine product. After my bike rides, I started mixing this with water as part of my recovery. I definitely started noticing a difference - not as thirsty, hungry, or tired. I've started mixing some of this into one of my water bottles too for my longer rides after my Gatorade runs out. The only drawback I noticed is that the scoop has a long handle which makes the powder go everywhere the first several times you use it.

        Comments about BodyTech BCAA and Glutamine - 6.9 Ounces Powder:

        I have used this product twice and noticed good results as far as muscle growth! Note that any of these amino acid products should not be taken by itself because it's not effective unless you combine them with other products preferably in your protein shakes that should mixed with bananas, strawberries,almond milk, peanut butter and the amino acids. Then you'll never have to worry about taste or anything like that plus it enhances the product causing it to work in conjunction! That is the right way to use these products!!

          I have been using this product for a while. I like the blend of BCAAs and Glutamine to help with post workout/acivity soreness and fatigue. It has a good cost per serving ratio. I noticed with my newest container that the color and consistency was a little different. It was less gritty and had a pinkish tinge compared to the container I was finishing. I checked the ingredients and it now lists soy as an ingredient. Not an issue for me but if you are non-or anti-soy for some reason you should be aware. On the plus side the new formula mixes better in juice or water and isn't as gritty going down, which is a plus.

            This is the second product of it's kind that I've tried. Hands down better than the previous supplement I've tried.

            My muscles are noticeably less sore the next day and less fatigued overall. I push my body pretty hard, doing long HIIT style cardio/strength workouts for an hour or more 5-6 times a week and this product helps me be ready for the next workout.

            The only thing holding this product back is it's taste.

            Use it post workout or in the morning after the workout. It definitely helps you heal up and feel less sore. I can confidently look forward to the next round of workout with the same or more intensity. Taste is strong, but mixes very well with the Bodytech pro24 whey protein. Can't taste a thing when mixed in. Will definitely buy again.

            I think this is a quality product. It has an effective 2:1:1 ratio but the reason I chose this over some other brands is the addition of glutamine. I take this as pre-workout with L-carnitine and post-workout. Because it is unflavored it is a bit difficult to get down. I generally just chug it with water.

            I use this product before working out on an empty stomach in the morning. Before we debate whether working out fasted is good or not I do it because I workout within ten minutes of waking up. I mix a scoop of this into a little water and chug it quick. Adding a few drops of lemon juice or other citrus helps it mix better. When I take this I have great energy to get through my workouts (some days weight training, some days HIIT cardio). I do notice a difference in performance when I don't take it. Also, the price is great for what you get can't beat it anywhere. I really like that it is flavorless because I haven't been able to find any flavored products that don't contain sucralose. I can't have sucralose it makes me overly emotional.

              Comments about BodyTech BCAA and Glutamine - 6.9 Ounces Powder:

              These BCAA's are perfect. The ratio is great and provides the necessary amounts for it to be helpuful for any active person needing a little aid in recovery. The price is spot on and gives you a good amount for your buck. The taste is kind of bad at first but if you let it sit for a bit it mixes ciompletely and just looks and tastes like water

                Comments about BodyTech BCAA and Glutamine - 6.9 Ounces Powder:

                It's true, as previous reviewers have stated, that this stuff tastes horrible. I've noticed this especially when it's mixed with thinner drinks i.e gatorade or water. But if you mix it with something thicker and or more tart, the taste completely disappears. Right now I'm mixing it with V8 Fruit Fusion Juice and it's a perfect mix! Also, I agree with previous reviews that it does seem to take a couple of days to bring full benefit. This 6.9 oz size makes 30 servings so it should last you close to a month. Hope this helps and good luck ! _Dio

                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.

                  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.

                            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.

                            I love this stuff, although the taste is rough. You won't taste it if mixed with Crystal Light. Drink before and after a workout. A must have.

                            I take this 3 times a day. This really helps me recover from workouts much better than anything I have used including products containing BCAA's. This is a an amazing product!!! The taste is really bad so you know I must love it in order to take it.

                            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.

                                    BCAAs work. Glutamine works. Both are great to stack in your shakes. This is the cheapest way I've found to get both. Gotta love the VS brands! :)

                                        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 have been trying to get the answer to the following question by phone calls to custom service. I got called back several times; but each time the caller said he needed more time to dig out the information. Why is it so hard to get this simple answer? Is Vitamin Shoppe uncomfortable to answer this question?

                                        What is the source of these amino acids?
                                        The bottle used to say they are from Ajinomoto, a Japanese company.
                                        But the bottle does not say that anymore.
                                        Where are the amino acids made now?
                                        Thanks!

                                        Best Answer: Depends on how intense the workouts are, usually after mixed with Whey protein. The muscles better absorb the product when they are damaged and in need of repair

                                        can i use this and still drink protein after work out?

                                        Best Answer: I'm not an expert but you get both bcaa and glutamine from protein you can add it in the morning for daily use or depending if you use protein everyday or not. If not you can take it on your off day. But that's just my opinion on it. Hope it helps.

                                        Best Answer: there are is a small amount of sugars and calories are about 15 per scoop. It depends on what you mix it with.

                                        Is it good to mix with whey protein (that already have BCAA's) after a workout?

                                        what if the protein powder has bcaa,like muscle whey, do you still take the extra bcaa & glutamine powder? and how much.

                                        Best Answer: This would depend on your activity level. Branched-chain amino acids are specific to muscle protein, and it is known that the body loses glutamine after intense physical exercise. A typical single scoop of protein supplement (I compared three) will deliver between 2.5-4 grams of BCAA, and 2.5-3.25 grams of glutamine. This is roughly equivalent to 1 scoop of the BCAA & glutamine product.

                                        As a triathlete, on days that I train, I add a scoop of BCAA/glutamine to my recovery protein. This effectively doubles the serving of BCAA's and glutamine without changing the rest of the formulation. On race days, or after a high-intensity session, I add 2 scoops of BCAA/glutamine.

                                        I seem to experience less muscle-soreness and less fatigue when doing so.

                                        Does this have any artificial sweeteners like Acesulfame Potassium?

                                        Best Answer: I'm looking at the bottle and it only contains vitamin C, L-Glutamine, L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine. It states that there are no sugars or artificial colors or flavors. Hope the information helps.

                                        are the amino acids in this product free form, not sourced from whey?

                                        pre workout BCAA & Glutamine can mix with BSN N.O. Xplode 2.0 one scoop and post workout BCAA & Glutamine one scoop mix with whey protein?

                                        Would taking this before my workout be beneficial?

                                        Best Answer: I choose after for recovery purposes. It's easy on the stomach mixed with a shake. I hear it's also good to take before. I prefer using something with a little stimulant before training, workouts instead. Coconut water during and this after.
