Brain Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) are one of the most popular dietary supplements in modern body building.
Its effectiveness cannot be underestimated which is why we decided to test top 3 most popular BCAAs on the market today:
- Informed BCAA by Bulk Powders
- BCAA by MyProtein and
- BCAA by Onnutrition
Our 12-man editorial team performed a series of tests for the period of 2 months. After a thorough discussion and analysis we’ve come up with the winners.
Here we go.
1st place – Informed BCAA (Bulk Powders)
With a content of 18 grams of amino acids per 10 grams BCAA in an 8:1:1 ratio the Informed BCAA was classified as the no. 1 BCAA in our rank.
What is worth noticing is that this BCAA contains such high quality ingredients as Nitrates, Leucine Nitrate and Arginine Nitrate.
The Informed supplements line is characterized by the high level of ingredients’ absorption and this was clearly visible during our tests.
Clients can choose the taste of Orange&Mango or Black Rapsberry flavours.
Our editorial office team reported the delicious taste of both of these option.
But of course in order to see actual results it must be used by people who actively working out, and the Informed BCAA was tailored just to them.
Additionally, Bulk Powders are very strict when it comes to quality procedures. They are routinely testing every batch for banned substances and nutritional validity of their products.
To sum up, it’s 90% of our team chose this product. Highly recommended.
2nd place – BCAA (Myprotein)
Our team has classified the Myprotein product as the second within our rank.
This situation should be attributed mainly to its poor dissolvability properties. Some of our teammates had problems with mixing it with water and it was a bit time consuming.
Manufacturer provides several types of flavours such as: Berry Blast, Bitter Lemon, Blue Rapsberry, Orange, Raspberry Lemonade, Tropical and Waterlemon.
BCAA by Myproiteng is a powerful supplement with an optimal 2:1:1 ratio of leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
Different flavours types contain different nutritional minerals but in average content of BCAA is 9 grams in portion of 18 grams each.
For sure it is worth considering as it is a good supplement with a good price tag.
Dissolvability : 3/5
3rd place – BCAA (Onnutrition)
This supplement is worth considering mainly because of its absorption and the same leucine ratio as presented by BCAA from MyProtein.
Manufacturer recommends to use this before or after training what makes it different than other BCAAs which are usually supplemented during the workout session.
Unfortunatelyn there is no possibility of choosing the flavour– there’s only the non-flavour option available.
As stated above, the points for this products were subtracted because of the poor absorption rate observed amongst our colleagues.
However still, there are some total lovers of this product as one editor from our editorial office always orders the biggest package of this very BCAA.
