IBCAA 4:1:1 is a great branched chain amino acid mix that many people will benefit from. The 4:1:1 ratio means it does contain more leucine than the 2:1:1 formula. Leucine has been shown more recently to increase protein synthesis and therefore the 4:1:1 comes highly recommended. We stock 1kg packs and discounts start at 2.9% for a 2 pack and go up to 18.6% for a 15 pack.

I am new to taking bcaa's and was naturally skeptical of their usefulness if one were taking adequate amounts of protein. Indeed, a quick trawling of the literature and body building message boards online will give a veritable smorgasbord of opions ranging from seemingly plausible to downright bro science. And so the only way to really know the truth of something is to try it for your damn self.
And so try I did. And notice a BIG difference I also did. I went from using only protein to taking bcaa's pre and post workout and also before bed. After adding this to my routine I noticed much faster recovery and ability to go much harder the next day. I can only assume that having an instant source of the 3 most utilised amino acids in muscle building available dramatically enhances repair and recovery. I'm going to keep using bcaa's as long as I'm training.
Let the gains begin!!

I'm a hard gainer and have gained quite a few kilos through a meal program and found it hard to see any muscle tone/ build until I started using this product. My muscle definition is much more visible and as I'm not a fan of pre workout with caffeine and what not, having this pre-workout has allowed me to push through and endure my workouts.
Excellent product, fantastic price.

I recently did a month of intermittent fasting (approx 12 hours a day), I took this stacked in with MPI Casein in the mornings before fasting and again in the evenings post fasting with electrolytes and plain WPC. I maintained muscle mass during this period and lost fat, I noticed my delts in particular more defined.
The taste is a little bitter, but who in the iron game doesn't put up with some discomfort for the bigger picture?
Excellent value IBCAA.

Look no further than PW's IBCAA's for your post workout needs.
I really didn't know what I was missing out on until I added PW's BCAA's to my supplement list. This product allows me to make the most of my diet and maximizes my protein synthesis so I'm getting more out of what I'm putting in.
PW's BCAA's mix easily, are neutral in taste (a big deal) and deliver proven results. Quite frankly you're cutting corners without it.
Use with Glutamine and Creatine for excellent results.
A different kind of horrible.

Make no mistake - the BCAAs taste horrible. I mix them with Professional Whey's
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (another outstanding product) to make ...well ...a different kind of horrible. But let's be clear - it works. My recovery has definitely improved!

I take 1tsp unflavoured IBCCA per litre during my workouts and it couldn't be better. I use it to aid in recovery. Drinking it unflavoured is fine, just don't expected it to taste like a tropical party in your mouth. I drink it plain or add a little orange stevia flavouring if i feel like it.
The perfect alternative to whey protein

Professional Whey has improved the taste and dissolvability of their BCAAs since my last purchase. In comparison to other BCAAs on the market I have found this is a better quality, cheaper and less bitter product. I mix 5 g of BCAAs with 300 mL of water before and after my workouts, before bedtime and first thing in the morning.
Easy to use

I add to my pre and post shakes. Mixes easily I don't notice any bitter or bad taste.
Another outstanding value-for-money product from Professional Whey

Excellent value BCAA's. Professional Whey's IBCAA is not only cheaper than other brands, its a better quality product. I won't buy anything else - A+ (I combine with Arginine AAKG and its a great pre-workout mix). Tastes nasty but so do all quality, pure BCAA's - add a little lemon juice if you can't handle the taste (you do get used to it however). Thanks Professional Whey!
Tastes fine and mixes well

I was a bit aprehensive about trying this. But add a bit of lemon juice and a pinch of stevia and it is like lemonade. It even tastes fine on its own. Best value product by far. Thanks PW!
Pure, great value

Dissolves easily. Tastes like any other pure branch chain, ie like crap, but that's what the pure BCAAs taste like, no way around it. Any flavouring or sweetener and it would not be the pure product! Easy enough to add some dextrose on your own to mask the flavour.
Throw a pinch of this in to your Post WO to aid recovery.
1/2 tsp in a drink bottle full of water, sip away at it intra-workout will help your muscular endurance across sets or through a
functional fitness workout. (it will also make your drink bottle smell bad within a week or two. Wash it out regularly!)
Cornerstone Nutrition and Perfect Product
Posted by cameron perry on 03 Jul 2013
A cornerstone of workout nutrition, and unlike most competing products is in a close to ideal ratio of the 3 constituents. Most BCAA formulas taste like death. This one tastes like a slight headcold; not pleasant, but it doesn’t really slow you down much. For pre and peri workout supplements it’s very hard to overlook BCAA’s. There’s a tonne of hard science backing them up and you’d be hard pressed to find many credible detractors of BCAA’s, and this ridiculously pure and inexpensive offering belongs in every fitness-minded persons pantry or batcave. It would be nice to see PW cover periwork out information on the ‘suggested use’ panel, but that is a pretty bloody minor imperfection on an otherwise seamless product.
