Essential Fuel for the Athlete

There are three Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) - L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine. These essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body and make up about 1/3 of muscle protein.

BCAAs can be depleted from muscle under intense training, and a deficiency in any one of them may cause muscle loss.

Amino acids are responsible for protein synthesis and BCAAs may be an important component for effective muscle growth, muscle energy, and recovery. NZProtein BCAAs deliver an optimal 2:1:1 ratio of these essential amino acids to provide essential muscle fuel and support lean muscle tissue preservation (anti catabolic)*.

three branched chain amino acid chains

Suggested Use

For its potential anti-catabolic benefits during intense training or when dieting, take up to two servings per day, with one serving immediately following exercise. For optimum results, mix in with your post-training shake, or use as directed.

Rated 4.88/5 Based on 24 customer reviews.

Best BCAAs ive tried not sickly sweet like most, nice and fresh (citrus flavour)

I'm sure it's a great product, and delivery was fantastically quick but I was rather disappointed that there was no scoop, meaning I have to find an old one that measures up to the right serving.

Bought both the citrus blast and tangy orange bcaa's, they both mix really well and taste amazing! The citrus blast is a bit sweeter than tangy orange but still both are awesome products. Keep the new flavours coming nz protein I can't wait to try them all :)

Fantastic product! Mixes really easy into water, don't even need a shaker, just dump into your workout drink bottle. Definitely wake up less sore after workouts so must be doing it's job!

Best bcaa's I've had! Blends easily just by shaking, love how the flavoured ones are clear too so it just looks like water! Definitely recommend this product!

Flavour's nice and there's no colour so I don't feel like a douchebag in my water bottle (Nicholas W)

Review by: Anonymous on Tue, Jun 28, 2016 12:37 PM
Very nice flavour, not sour at all. 5/5 because i paid and it arrived within in 2 hours, i may have just been lucky but 2 HOURS.
Review by: ASG on Tue, Jun 7, 2016 5:58 PM
Awesome product used twice a day and noticed huge gains, value for money awesome
Review by: Anonymous on Thu, Jun 2, 2016 10:34 AM
Good value. Worth noting this is unflavored (doesn't seem to say in the product listing) - so you definitely need to mix it with something to make it palatable.
Review by: Anonymous on Sun, May 8, 2016 8:59 AM
Cheap, effective and worth your money. Very easy to contact and fast delivery, if you're looking to invest in a BCAA, look no further.
