The True Strength of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)
L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine are commonly grouped together and referred to as Branched Chain Amino Acids, or BCAAs, because of their unique branched chemical structure. BCAAs are essential, meaning that they must be consumed through the diet, since the human body cannot make them from other compounds. BCAAs have long been used by strength-training and endurance athletes alike to support protein synthesis and recovery from intense training. Our Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder is made using a proprietary process that mixes easily and keeps the BCAAs suspended longer so they do not readily settle to the bottom of the glass. Because if you can't drink your BCAAs, they can't help your performance.
Consume Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, and/or immediately after workout. Intended for use in healthy adults and as part of a healthy, balanced, diet and exercise program.
Spoon Stirred: Add 1 heaping teaspoon of Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder to a glass filled with 10-12 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 15-20 seconds.
Shaker: Just add 1 heaping teaspoon of Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder to your shaker cup filled with 10-12 oz of your favorite beverage. Cover and shake for about 10 seconds to ensure a good mix. Don't have a shaker cup? Tip: Try adding instantized BCAA 5000 Powder to your favorite protein powder, meal replacement product, or weight-gainer shake.

This product work extremely well. I have been taking 10-15g a day for 9 months. I have not been able to workout, due to a new job. However, I have not lost any muscle mass. Have maintained same body composition! So, this product has stimulated muscle building as it is supposed to do. As for the taste, all unflavored BCAA taste horrible. I add a EmergenC packet and a flavored NO product (Fruit punch flavored Super Charge by Labrada) to it, so I barely taste it. I get more bang for the buck and the results I need. The micronization of this product works as well. I have tried other BCAAs and usually have powder settling in the bottom of my mixer cup. With this one I don't have that.
I love this product. I drink mine mixed with water in a shaker while I'm at the gym, and I can tell that there's a huge difference in how long I'm able to workout. The fruit punch tastes great and is especially refreshing.. Also cheaper than other BCAA powders I've tried. I'd definitely recommend it!

I chose the unflavored one because I want to mix it with the pre-workout. However drinking. it unmixed or mixed gave little bitter taste

I couldn't tolerate it, hard to prepare and there is no scope inside

It tastes funny on its own. After a few try I can't stand the taste and I have to mix it with other bcaa with flavor
