Branched Chain Amino Acids (or BCAAs) play a primary role in effective muscle growth, recovery and reducing soreness after tough exercise. As our body’s are unable to synthesise these Essential proteins itself, getting a quality source is paramount. Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000’s 2:1:1 formulation of the three BCAAs Leucine, IsoLeucine and Valine has been shown in tests to rapidly supply your muscles with the proteins they need during and after hard exercise to excel. During exercise BCAAs are known to increase endurance, and afterwards play a critical role in rebuilding muscle quickly.

Optimum Nutrition BCAA Capsules

Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000 contains a balance of the Branched Chain Amino Acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine in a 2:1:1 ratio. Amino acids are the building blocks of muscle protein and these three amino acids in particular have been shown to play a key role in kick starting muscle building reactions. BCAAs are rapidly absorbed in the muscle and supplementation can promote muscle repair and recovery.

The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's), named after their unique branched chemical structure, are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds meaning you can only get them through your diet and supplementation. Each 2-capsule serving provides a total of 1 gram of BCAAs which can be taken before training, after training or between meals to help boost your daily BCAA intake.

The 400-capsule pack is the best value option however if you're new to BCAA supplementation, Optimum Nutrition BCAAs are also available in a smaller 200 cap bottle and also an instantized powder form if you would like to try something different with the same muscle sparing benefits.

Key Benefits

  • Decreased DOMS – We love to hate them but let's face it, delayed onset muscle soreness can be a real pain in the neck! Using BCAAs can improve recovery between workouts to leave you feeling fresher and ready to hit your next session hard.
  • Convenient Capsule Format – Optimum Nutrition BCAAs are small, easy to swallow capsules that you can take anywhere on the go. No mess, no fuss and always gives you the same exact dose. If you would prefer your BCAAs in a powder form you could try Optimum Nutrition BCAA 5000 which can be mixed with water or any flavoured drink to boost muscle repair at any time of day.
  • Value for Money - This 400-capsule tub is the best value option however if you're trying BCAAs for the first time and still unsure a smaller 200-cap bottle is also available.
  • Essential Amino Acids – Leucine, isoleucine and valine are the three amino acids that have been shown to play a major role in initiating muscle protein synthesis, or more simply "gains", and supplementing with Optimum Nutrition capsules is a great way to make sure you're getting the dose you need.

Who is Optimum Nutrition BCAA Capsules For?

Optimum Nutrition BCAAs are an essential part of any athlete's supplements regime to maximise muscle repair and recovery between tough training sessions. Unfortunately Optimum Nutrition BCAAs are not suitable for vegetarians as they do use a gelatine capsule.

When to Use Optimum Nutrition BCAA Capsules?

BCAAs can be taken before training, after training and between meals to boost your amino acid intake throughout the day. We recommend taking 2 capsules (1 serving) pre-workout and post-workout for the best results. For a BCAA boost during your workout try adding Optimum Nutrition BCAA 5000 Instantized Powder to your water bottle and sip between sets.
