BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) (Instantized)

New product

Supplementing with Instantized BCAA powder can allow greater rates of protein synthesis and delayed fatigue since most hard training athletes' bodies are deficient in branched chain amino acids. When the body undergoes physical stress, BCAAs can be used as an alternate fuel source to fuel protein synthesis and delay fatigue. Read the full product description for more information.

What are BCAAs?

BCAAs, or Branch Chain Amino Acids, are often referred to as the building blocks of the human body, due largely to the fact that they make up more than 35% of a person’s skeletal muscle mass. Not only that, but they are also vital for molecular development and growth to take place as well. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein molecules, so naturally, a great deal of bodybuilders and strength athletes tend to include BCAAs as part of their supplement regime. They are comprised of three amino acids, which are: Leucine, Valine, and Isoleucine, and they get their name due to the fact that their molecular chemical structure resembles the branches of a tree, hence the name Branch, or sometimes, Branched chain amino acids.

How do they work?

BCAAs are known as essential amino acids, due to the fact that the body needs them, but cannot synthesize them naturally. Because of this, they have to come in the form of supplements, beverages, or whole foods. Each of the amino acids making up BCAAs however, functions in a different way. Leucine for example, is considered a potent muscle building amino acid, due to the fact that this is actually the only protein that has been found to contribute directly to protein synthesis. Because of this, post-workout recovery heavily relies on this amino acid. On top of that however, it also contributes towards the production of sterols, which are essential for the formation of steroidal hormones such as HGH or Testosterone, which also help build muscle. Isoleucine plays a vital role in the utilization and mobilization of fat, in which it helps to body convert it into energy. Valine however, is considered most useful for energy production purposes as it can easily be broken down and converted into glycogen, which can then be used for energy. Combine the three together, and you have a pretty awesome muscle-building supplement.

What are the benefits of BCAA supplements?

Though there are many, many benefits associated with BCAAs, rather than covering them all in great detail, we’ll instead take a more direct look at some of the most prominent benefits one can expect when using BCAA supplements:

Muscle growth and repair

As mentioned, BCAAs play a crucial role in the growth and repair of muscle tissue, due largely to the fact that they help assist with protein synthesis, in which the body literally synthesizes new muscle proteins to replace damaged and worn down ones. On top of that however, the additional energy you receive by using BCAAs, is also beneficial as the more energy you have, the more productive your workouts will become.

Fat loss

Another great benefit of BCAAs is the fact that they can help you to lose body fat, whilst preserving lean muscle mass. This is mainly down to isoleucine, which as mentioned, helps assist with fat mobilization and utilization, which basically means that it helps allow the body to burn fat as a primary energy source. This is ideal because you actually fuel your workouts with your body fat stores, so the more fat you burn, the more energy you have, which means that you can exercise even harder and more intensely.

Energy production

Another reason why people tend to supplement with BCAAs is the fact that they also help to boost the metabolism and assist with energy production. Isoleucine for example, helps to burn body fat for energy, whereas valine can actually be converted directly into glycogen, which the muscles use as a primary source of energy.

Other benefits include:

  • Increased muscle mass
  • Fat loss
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved immune system
  • Increased metabolism
  • Increased post-workout recovery
  • Enhanced athletic performance
  • And more...

How and when should they be taken?

BCAAs commonly come in powered supplement form, although some are sold in liquid form, and/or tablet form as well. Experts recommend around 2 x 5g servings per day, so 10g in total. Some people choose to add them to their post-workout shake, whilst others sip on them during their workout. A second dosage is usually taken late at night, before going to bed.

Health Canada Recommended Dose (capsules): Adults: 1 - 6 Capsule(s) 1 time(s) per day. Store in a cool, dry place.
Health Canada Recommended Dose (powder): Adults: 1 Scoop(s) 1 time(s) per day. Mix product well in 1-2 cups of liquid (water, juice, etc.) immediately before consumption. Store in a cool, dry place.

BCAAs VS EAAs

So, you’re probably wondering what the difference is between BCAAs, and Essential Amino Acids, or EAAs. In reality, essential amino acids actually contain BCAAs, except for the fact that they also contain other amino acids, so the concentrations of BCAAs are not as strong. EAAs are still beneficial, but experts recommend prioritizing BCAAs over EAAs, as they are considered three of the most beneficial of all essential amino acids.

What can they be stacked with?

BCAAs are a very potent muscle building supplement, and because of this, they are often stacked with other muscle building supplements. Common muscle building stacks include: pre-workout supplements, whey protein, BCAAs, and L-Glutamine.

Doesn't mix well and instructions have changed
Yusuf J. on 02/11/2016
Previously bought the sour apple version and it was good. A bit too sour so o opted for the unflavoured this time. Unflavoured doesn't mix well, gets very lumpy. Also tastes weird- i guess it's cos of the no flavor. I've also blot iced hat instructions on the new packaging have changed. Before it said take bcaa before and after workout, now it says "once a day" Why the difference in instructions?
Answer: HI Yusuf, the reason for the change is because it is according to the instructions Health Canada has outlined for BCAAs. If you feel you should take them at a different point during the day then that is up to you.

Would have been 5 star if it was about more sweet, I user 1.5 scoop instead.

Also, the scoop is really small and hard to find in the bag cus the plastic is clear and the powder is light in color.

My suggest is to make the scoop a different color and have a side pocket to hold the scoop so I don't have to always dig into the powder with my fingers.

My trainer at the gym I go to (Bryan Dennison...Bryans Fitness INferno) recommended your products to myself and my training partner. I have a lot of allergies so I have to be careful with the protein drinks but I do intend on purchasing some from you in the near future to try them out. My workout partner has ordered some and loved them. I have ordered the BCAA's and really like the product. Does not seem to cause any type of reaction for me or stomach upsest at all. I will be purchasing more. I will be totally honest though.....your products and prices are fantastic but the fact that we have to pay shipping and can't pick them up somewhere local has had us purchase from other places. If you had a location locally where we could just pick up our products we would order mainly from you and a variety of your products. Thanks for asking my opinion and have a nice day.

I LOVE the taste of the green apple flavor. Based on the reviews I thought it would be gross but being my first BCAA powder, im impressed. I will be buying more!

Really good stuff. DO NOT get unflavoured, I had to throw it out. Could not stomach that taste (like all BCAA) Flavoured ones are good. Nice to rotate between them every couple months

Pink lemonade flavour is delicious! But you need two scoops to have a good taste….. Easily mixes into any shake and no residue left at the bottom.

Bought 1 lb for me and 1 for my dad. Unflavoured because don't really like the sucralose thing. Taste like BCAA, which is horrible! haha! Still a very good product. Better than what I can buy for the same price on the market. Is it possible to have BCAA powder with Stevia?

I really hope that they could have more flavors in the future such as watermelon which would be really awesome. Other than that it does the job, probably not the best in taste wise. But I don't mind.

I loved their protein taste so I gave the BCAA a shot... well.. green apple tasted not so good. its not that the taste is so bad but it is so light you can't really taste it... I was expecting strong taste like Xtend or other brands but this one is nothing like it.

Best BCAAs i've tried
Jordan on 10/09/2015

I bought the pink lemonade BCAAs. Holy damn, hands down THE BEST tasting BCAAs i've ever had. Mix it with some orange gatorade and it's even more like candy! I can dilute two scoops into 750mL and it's still great. Solubility is also on point. I'm going to have to try the green apple. Only quam is that i wish there were additional flavors, but that's non-issue. Great product. Beats any name-brand that costs 50%+ more.

I've tried both the Green Apple and Lemonade. Lemonade was alright, Green Apple was much better. During a workout both mixed easily and provided a bit of extra fuel, and reduced soreness. I often use these in place of 'Crystal Light' or Mio in my water at work; instead of snacking between meals I've been bridging with some BCAAs.

I couldn't be happier with the products that this company provides. The Pink Lemonade is delicious, tastes just as you'd expect. Make sure you shake in a shaker cup before each drink so that it's not settled on the bottom and you're good. No complaints. Better than buying Cellucor's BCAAs and getting Betal Alanine and a bunch of other stuff that I'm not looking for. If you are looking for straight BCAAs, buy this!

Truly one of the best supplements one can buy, and a great value for your dollar on this site, mixes very easily in a shaker cup. I am loving the results so far, it has really helped with my recovery process and most importantly my ability to pack on muscle with good diet and training of course. For anyone not liking the bitter taste I add mine to a shaker cup with some crystal light, pomegranite flavour, the bitterness of the pomegranite compliments the powder quite nicely and tastes great. All in all, I am very pleased with this product and the price I paid for it.

For the price and quality, it's a good buy. I appreciate that it doesn't have any extra crap in it. No sugar, sweeteners... nothing. But if you're flavour sensitive, pass on this. On it's own, it's barely palatable; I found I could improve the taste by adding some lemon juice. Can't decide if I'll buy it again...

I think it's really helped reduced recovery time. 5g first thing in the morning, then 5g after a workout. It's very bitter tasting, but I mix mine with some lemon juice and water, I find the sour acidity cuts the bitterness better than sweetening it does.
