Review: Multipower BCAA Caps

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Hi All


I was recently sent a load of stuff from Multipower Sportsfoods, one of the things they sent over is a bottle of Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) Capsules.  I have not used BCAAs for a while and decided to add them into my supplement routine over the next few weeks and see what happened.  I followed the suggested dosage of 3 pre workout and 3 post workout, this gave me a good boost of those much-needed amino acids!  The capsules themselves contain essential amino acids L-Leucine, L-Valine, and L-Isoleucine to support the preservation of muscle mass and additionally L-Alanine and potassium hydrogen carbonate that helps to support those intensive workout sessions. On top of all this the BCAAs are very clean and contain no nasties, making them a good choice for all those who are more health conscious with their supplement choices.

The science behind taking BCAA is that during exercise protein may be used as a fuel source, so when taking the supplement it means there should be a surplus of amino acids within the body.  This means that the body is less likely to eat into muscle tissue in order to create energy.  There have been a number of studies that support the use of BCAA in order to reduce muscle breakdown and promote faster recovery.

I found the Multipower capsules to be an awesome addition to my stack, allowing me to get some good gains and also helped me to preserve muscle mass, even through periods of more intense cardiovascular work.  I am going to add this product to my regular intake, another bottle that makes it to be a resident in my gym bag!

I would definitely recommend the Multipower BCAAs and at less than £20 for 102 capsules they will not break the bank!  In fact having used a number of the Multipower products I can highly recommend the brand.
