Myprotein BCAA's, the analysis

After several analysis of proteins, creatines and even meals, it’s time to take a look at a supplement of BCAAs.

We had already published an article on this type of supplement, which is not really an article, but a complete guide, as we cover the subject in detail.

Find the complete guide here.

Now if you don't know what BCAA's are but you don't feel like reading a will like what you find in the guide, here's a summary.

BCAA's are a set of three extremely interesting amino acids for those who walk in the gymnasium and practice sport.

They are Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.

If you’ve read a protein supplement review whey here on the website you know that we evaluate, whenever possible, the amount of BCAA's in each one.

This is because they are very important for anabolism, increase in lean mass, they are anti-catabolic - they prevent loss of muscle mass - and mitigate fatigue.

Let's move on to the analysis of BCAA's Powder da Myprotein.


We have a partnership with the Myprotein brand and these products have been offered for testing.

That said, the partnership does not influence the analyzes made on the site, since we limit ourselves to assess the facts contained in the nutritional table, ingredients of each product, and in this case, also the taste, which is subjective and should be seen as such.

Impartiality is the priority in all analyzes.

This partnership allows us to have some benefits not only for us but also for you who visit the site.

Ingredients

As a rule, BCAA's supplements don't invent as many tricks as whey protein supplements.

While in whey brands often add cheap amino acids, use low-value protein sources, and other profit-enhancing techniques, this is less so in BCAA's.

But it also happens.

Will it be the case here?

No.

Myprotein powder BCAA's are available in two variants: flavored and flavorless.

In the case of the flavorless version, we have three ingredients.

Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.

Yes, only BCAA's. Absolutely nothing more.

For the flavored version, flavorings, sweeteners and sometimes colorants are added.

That is, the normal ingredients to give the desired flavor to the supplement.

Other than that, you can't find anything else inside the package other than the scoop.

So what about the ingredients?

It's BCAA's, period.

Myprotein BCAA's in Mojito flavor.

Formula

The formula used in this Myprotein supplement is the traditional one, ie 2: 1: 1.

What does this mean?

Half of the supplement is Leucine, probably the most important amino acid of the three for those in the gym.

Then both Isoleucine and Valine are divided into 25% each.

Why is Leucine in greater quantity?

Leucine is in greater quantity because it is the one with the greatest impact on anabolism and muscle growth.

This does not mean that others are not important.

Isoleucine promotes glucose consumption and storage within muscle cells, leading to more efficient use of energy.

While Valina participates in several processes similar to the other two companions, the impact is smaller.

So what about the formula?

It's the classic formula, it's the formula you find in most quality supplements and the one with the best value for money.

It is also the most studied.

You can bet on an isolated supplement of Leucinebut in that case you lost the benefits of Isoleucine and Valine.

There are also BCAA add-ons with different values, such as 4: 1: 1 that you find herebut then you end up buying a supplement that is practically just leucine.

In short, if you never use BCAA's, the ideal would be to start with the classic formula, with a relatively balanced balance between the three amino acids.


With or without flavor?

If you choose the flavorless version, you save money, you have a higher concentration of BCAA's and you can mix it with your protein shake or other flavored drink.

It sounds ideal, if it weren't for the fact that mixing it with something with flavor is almost mandatory, as the taste won't make you smile. It is unpleasant. Ideal for mixing, not very pleasant to drink alone.

In the case of the flavored version, the value is higher, you have a lower BCAA's concentration due to the flavorings and sweeteners and mixing with something already flavored makes the drink terrible.

On the other hand, flavored is ideal for use without adding anything, or to add to something without flavor.

It is ideal for drinking for example before, during or after training.

Or simply to enjoy a nice drink whenever you want, and without worrying about less interesting ingredients, or Calories that don't benefit you at all.

Basically, it depends on the intended use.

To flavor something or drink by itself, the ideal will be with flavor.

Add to your flavored smoothie or show your friends that you can drink something unpalatable without scowling, the ideal will be without flavor.


The flavors

Myprotein has sent us four new flavors that were recently introduced.

Mojito, Grenadine, Ice Tea and Kiwi.

These are flavors reminiscent of the summer.

Now, as you know, taste is very subjective, and each person has their own taste.

That said, we went to votes. Three people, four flavors.


Mojito

Very good.

If you put ice or ice water, the flavor of the mojito is impressive and is undoubtedly one of the best of the four.

Obviously to have a good taste using BCAA's, and practically 0 calories, it is not possible to have a perfect replica of the traditional mojito. But… it's close by.

The vote was unanimous with three positive votes and the favorite of one of them.


Kiwi

It is not a big deal.

The taste of Kiwi was probably the big disappointment of the four.

Not only is it unpalatable, but it also doesn't make you want to drink another one right away. It's not the kind of flavor you share and your training buddy steals your whole drink.

Basically not impressive.

In Kiwi flavor the vote was different, only one in three liked it.


Ice Tea

For those who like ice tea, it's good.

For those who do not like, is more or less.

If you like it, it's a good option to try.

In the vote, he had two positive votes.


Grenadine

The big surprise.

Not sure what it was, we went there to test this flavor.

And impressed.

With ice, it's the kind of late afternoon drink on a summer day. Refreshing and nice.

Recommended.

In the voting?

Three positive votes and two considered this flavor their favorite.

One factor Myprotein usually stands out from other well-known brands is price.

Not only in price, but in the fact of not giving up the quality of the product to be able to offer a more attractive price.

In the case of powdered BCAA's it is no exception as you can see from the table. (Original prices, flavored version and no code applied)

The values ​​are interesting, and with the constant promotions, or the use of our promo code, they become very interesting.

For the flavors of this review, they are currently only available in 250g size and the price is lower than normal.

Given that these are new flavors, the price is 19,99 €, which gives a value of 0,40 € per serving.

Given that it is the first supplement of its kind that we reviewed, we have no analysis for comparison.

Verdict

What distinguishes this product from other good supplements on the market? Nothing.

So? Why should I use this one and not another?

Price.

The big highlight here goes for the good price without sacrificing product quality.

It's BCAA's, period.

But they are BCAA's at a very attractive price.

That is what sets them apart.

They perform the function without attacking the wallet.

But don't forget, it's just BCAA's.

The diversity of flavors is also an asset.
