BodyTech BCAA Powder (5 GM ) 11.8 Ounces Powder (65 servings)


Product Label

  • Instantized
  • Unflavored
  • 5 g of Branched Chain Amino Acids per Serving
  • BodyTechs Instantized BCAA Powder provides a precise 2:1:1 ratio of the essential branched chain amino acids: L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine. During times of metabolic stress (such as high intensity resistance training), BCAAs may become fuel for your muscles and help aid in protein synthesis and prevent catabolism (protein breakdown).

As a dietary supplement, mix one (1) scoop with 6-8 ounces of water, in a MRP, protein supplement or other beverage with a shaker cup, spoon or blender.

Warning

Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing. Consult your physician prior to use if you have any medical condition. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

I used to never see the beneifit of taking additional BCAAs but when I did in amounts exceeding 10grams I see great results. Particularly a decrease in body weight and strength. Usually I'll use it after a month of creatine and it usually thins me out and acutally make me stronger than on creatine. I highly reccomend you try supplementing 5grams before your workout and 5 after with you protein. If you can afford it do more. Also purity is key. I've used to try bulk BCAA powder but have found VS BCAA to work better from the purity using the a patented type of BCAA that is used for medical use. Definately a staple.

Standard BCAA, Brutal Taste

It's a little hard for me to rank the performance of this product simply because I haven't been off of a BCAA supplement for months. They're all pretty much the same, I haven't noticed anything different for better or worse with this product, so I guess that says something about how well it works.

The taste though is brutal. It's almost a stale stinging in the back of your throat. I have mixed this stuff with everything from tea, to gatorade, to crystal light, and even protein shakes. You can still taste it. I was hoping for something actually flavorless, or close to it, but this stuff is just amazingly bad.

Comments about BodyTech Bcaa Powder (5 GM) - 11.8 Ounces Powder:

I use this powder in soy or almond milk with peanut butter and a banana. I mix in a blender and it dissolves well. I can't taste it when mixed this way but I have mixed it in water and it was awful. Drinking this before or after doing intense cardio helps keep my energy steady and I think it helps build a little muscle.

    Comments about BodyTech Bcaa Powder (5 GM) - 11.8 Ounces Powder:

    This is a good product in that it provides adequate BCAAs for a good price. However, the taste is atrocious and it does not mix well. Optimum Nutritions unflavored BCAA powder has the same problem. There are much better products, notably Scivation Xtend. If bought in the larger amount (90 services), the price difference isn't that much between Scivation, Bodytech, and ON.

    Comments about BodyTech Bcaa Powder (5 GM) - 11.8 Ounces Powder:

    Well... The product does work, but may be a little misleading. The product is labeled "unflavored." The problem is it's far from it, the taste is beyond horrible. Buyers beware, just because it says unflavored, does not mean it has zero flavor.

    I HAVE BEEN TAKING THIS PRODUCT FROM VITAMIN SHOPPE FOR ABOUT 5 YEARS ONCE I DID RESEARCH AND FOUND OUT THAT (AJIPURE AMINO ACIDS) ARE TOP OF THE LINE, I TAKE IT ALONE IN WATER SOMETIMES WITH GLUTAMINE AND MICRONIZED CREATINE, BUT MOSTLY IN MY PROTEIN SHAKES,I DONT EVEN NOTICE IT'S IN THERE LIKE SOME OF THESE GUYS COMPLAINING ABOUT THE TASTE, IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT HORRIBLE TASTE IS THEN BUY A PRODUCT THAT DOES NOT HAVE THE (AJIPURE) STAMP ON IT AND I GUARANTEE YOU WILL BE BUYING THIS BRAND AGAIN, AND REGULAR AMINO ACIDS DONT MIX WELL AT ALL AND WHEN YOU SHAKE THEM IN SOMETHING THE BOTTLE OR SHAKER WANTS TO EXPLODE, SO I WILL BE STICKING WITH THIS THAT IS WHY THEY ARE MORE EXPENSIVE THAT OTHER TOP COMPANY'S WHO USE PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE AMINOS BUT ARE NOT (AJIPURE AMINO ACIDS)

        Comments about BodyTech Bcaa Powder (5 GM) - 11.8 Ounces Powder:

        This product I have found is great for recovery time and less soreness. The issue I have is that the most recent shipment (Sept 2012) the powder is much different than previous and it does not mix near as well as it did before. Maybe I just got a bad batch otherwise the product would be 5 stars.

                So I was a little hesitant to getting this because people were saying that it tasted horrible. Anyways, the sales rep recomended to mix it with the protein drink that Im currently taking(myofusion) and it did not taste bad at all. I also took it at night right after my workout , went to bed and I felt great the next morning!!! no soreness at all ....well maybe like a 2 on a scale of 1-10( 1 being the least sore). Point is I felt great!!!!! and really it doesnt taste bad at all if you mix it with whatever supplement it is that your taking.

I'm not one to get hung up on things like that, but this stuff is one of the worst things I have ever tasted. YOu definitely need to take this stuff with something to mask the taste.

The taste is absolutely terrible so make sure you some something to cover the taste. However, it works great. My biceps have never been bigger. I'm starting to see my abs. I know it is this product because I haven't taken anything else. I intend on using this for now on.

                                I take 5g before and after my workouts and another 5g before bed. I don't bother mixing it in anything, I just take the scoop and pour it directly in my mouth. A quick swig of water and I'm good to go! No complaints from me; this is a solid product.

                                    I primarily make my supplement purchases online due to better prices...but If I had to buy face to face, I'd spend the $ to pick this up, which I have in the past...mixes fairly well, add in some crystal light and you're set for a good intra drink at a good price.

                                        This is the best priced BCAA out there. But it definitely is no frills as it is not flavored and BCAA's tend to taste kind of like cardboard. Fortunately it mixes very well and I usually drink it with some fruit juice or protein mix which masks the taste. Also be sure to take notice that it is Ajipure Amino Acids which are some of the best out there.

                                            You can really feel the difference in your muscles when you use these BCAA's pre- and post-workout. Your body is definitely getting the recovery it needs afterwards, and the energy it needs during the workouts - and I feel this difference when I religiously take these BCAA's...they're grrrrreat!

                                                I used to never see the beneifit of taking additional BCAAs but when I did in amounts exceeding 10grams I see great results. Particularly a decrease in body weight and strength. Usually I'll use it after a month of creatine and it usually thins me out and acutally make me stronger than on creatine. I highly reccomend you try supplementing 5grams before your workout and 5 after with you protein. If you can afford it do more. Also purity is key. I've used to try bulk BCAA powder but have found VS BCAA to work better from the purity using the a patented type of BCAA that is used for medical use. Definately a staple.

                                                jack w: Hi Chris

                                                I take the BCAA's only when I work with weights. I mix the product with my Whey Protein and consume at the same time. I mix them with water, Be sure to keep the drink cold. I consume the drink during workout. I assume you know what BCAA's are and how your body needs to take them in order to efficiently build muscle. I also have read that they might help with weight loss. Although, I haven't read anything scientific to support this. By the way the BodyTech label is highly rated by Consumer Lab Let me know if you have any further questions.

                                                I use the BCAA power before workout and after workout. Before workout I mix it with my NO-XPLODE mix and after workout I mix it with my protein drink. Both are taken within 30-45min before/after workout.

                                                Jeremy L: Yes, these are AjiPure BCAA's which are not animal-derived.

                                                "Ajipure IBCAA is the result of unique production technology that sets it apart from any competitive powder ? allowing it to dissolve more quickly in water, and become available in the body more rapidly. Plus, as with all AjiPure amino acids, you can count on 100% non-animal-origin ingredients and 99-100% purity."
