Optimum Nutrition BCAA 5000
Product mixes well with my protein powder and my pre-workout supplements. It is unflavored, but I noticed when I added it to my protein shake, it gave it a very bitter taste. But in my N.O. Explode and Hyper FX, it doesn't compromise the flavor.
This is a great product. The only reason I gave it an 8 is because even though it says unflavored, it does alter the taste of whatever drink you add it into.
Leucine- 2.5 grams
Maltodextrin*, Lecithin. *Adds a trivial amount of carbohydrates per serving.
Mix one heaping teaspoon with 6-8 ounces of water or your favorite beverage for 15 to 20 seconds using a shaker cup or simply with a glass and spoon.

Excellent intra workout product review by Chris on 6/18/2015
Optimum Nutrition BCAA powder is very good. I use it during intra workout. This BCAA really helps me in recovery and prevents muscle breakdown during and after workouts. It also helped me not feel as fatigued during workout. The price is also not bad for this product. The taste is not really good though. So mix it with your pre workout product to mask the taste. Another thing you can do is to add Crystal Light with BCAA to help make the BCAA taste better.
good recovery, great for pre, intra and post workout. review by Alex on 11/24/2014
I bought this to use for pre, intra, and post workout. 5 grams per serving. It did help on y recovery and I didn't feel that fatigue. I did notice some strength gains but not to much, due to the bioavailability of these amino. Some are not used cause the abruption rate is nothing compared to the bonded aminos. Also to create a better anabolic state you need all the 8 essential amino acids so these BCAA can only help you so much. Its good to buy this to add it to other EAA or Protein.
