It has long been established that protein is an essential nutrient that needs to be obtained from our diets. The value of a protein source is its amino acid composition. Basically, a protein molecule is a long chain of amino acids linked by peptide bonds (i.e., an amino acid linked to another amino acid). Hundreds of different amino acids exist in nature; however, only twenty-two are typically found as components in human peptides or proteins. These amino acids are joined in varying combinations, each having a distinct amino-acid sequence which determines its specific shape and function. Once digested and absorbed, these amino acids play central roles as building blocks of proteins and as intermediates in metabolism, thereby controlling virtually all cellular process and reactions in living cells. Scientists, experts, and medical professionals all agree that getting enough amino acids in one’s diet is an important factor in maintaining proper . In recent years, especially in the fitness industry, the emphasis has shifted from using protein to consuming specific amino acids.1,2,3 Many physiological processes related to bodybuilding, from energy, recovery, muscle hypertrophy, to strength gains, are linked to amino acids.

Won’t easily mix with water When I first reviewed this product, I gave it 2 stars, but my research about the negatives led me to try something different, and I now rate it 4 stars. As far as nutritional value and reasonable price, this product appears excellent. But actual usage leaves something to be desired. It will not mix with water if you need it instantly. It floats on the top in a waxy mess no matter how much it is stirred, with some of it just sticking to the sides of the glass. The taste isn’t great, but you…

GREAT BCAA This is the best unflavored BCAA out there. A lot of people complain that taste is so awful however they should know that all unflavored BCAA’s do not taste good at all. I would like to buy this again because it is the best price per serving size and qty. What I do is to mix it with another brand that is too sweet and it comes out perfect formula for me. I wish there were more unflavored BCAA out there so I can compare the pricing.

Inexpensive source of 3 BCAA’s, and good Consumers’ Lab rating. Good ratings from Consumer Labs, and cheapest product per unit of BCAA. Taste is ok.
