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.
Good quality but wasn't for me
Posted by wendy on 03 Dec 2016
This stuff is good quality but i had to add flavour to it, couldn't get used to it pure. Nevertheless I'd buy this non flavoured again as it "feels" right like that and you have more options to customise.
Unfortunately I gave my batch away because it raised my insulin levels too much (I should've researched this before as i am insulin resistant), so it wasn't for me, but i know it's good stuff... wasn't going to chuck it out!
Going back to my other aminos from this website instead.
Does the job without the artificial rubbish

High quality BCAAs without artificial sweeteners and the revolting fake flavours other manufacturers use to mask bitterness. Fits perfectly with my nutrition ethos.

Best product! Have been using it for 3 months consecutively now. I've struggled to put on muscle in the past but these BCAAs have done the job and helped me through training plateaus! I hate taking capsules and these powered BCAAs are perfect. Would definitely recommended, money well spent!
Same results, FAR better taste!

I have used a number of BCAA powders in the past. Most tasted horrible (to put it nicely), to the point that I started using BCAA capsules instead. I decided to give this product a go, and was very pleasantly surprised that the taste was no longer so offensive to my tastebuds! I get the same results and no longer have to stomach a powder that tastes like a combination of soap and curdled milk. VERY happy!

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.
