Branch Chain Amino Acids - 2:1:1 BCAAs
Instantised Branch Chain Amino Acids (iBCAA ) from TPW™ are made from Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine and are renowned for their muscle building qualities, along with their ability to prevent muscle loss when taken preworkout. During periods of intense training the body can enter into a state where the muscles begin to breakdown. But because iBCAA’s are absorbed directly into the muscle tissue and are metabolised quickly, taking them preworkout or intraworkout can help to prevent this muscle breakdown and ensure your muscles remain in a more positive state during training.
BCAAs For Muscle Gain
Studies have demonstarted that Instantised Branch Chain Amino Acids (iBCAA) have impressive muscle building properties when taken post workout. TPW™ iBCAA’s have been made in the optimal 2:1:1 ratio (leucine: isoleucine: valine) especially important in the post workout window. Research shows leucine (the dominant constituent of our iBCAA) can enhance protein synthesis by as much as 33%. Protein synthesis is the process by which the muscles use protein to repair and regrow - so iBCAA supplementation post workout can be particularly important to strength athletes or those wanting to build quality muscle.
Instantised BCAAs - High Tech Manufacturing Process
It's important to note there is a fundamental difference between products advertised as "BCAA" and "iBCAA". The "i" stands for instantised which means our BCAAs have undergone a high tech manufacturing process. This ensures that when mixed with water, our BCAAs dissolve fully. Standard, cheaper BCAAs, when mixed with water cannot dissolve and 'lumps' float on the top of the liquid. This not only makes it harder to consume but also takes longer to reach the muscle. Here at TPW™, we only manufacture iBCAA as we believe in only offering products that achieve the best results for our customers.
BCAAs With Natural Flavours
Whilst Branch Chain Amino Acids are backed by years of research, they are also known for having a slightly bitter taste and not mixing ever so well. That’s why here at TPW™ we have ensured that our premium quality BCAA's are instantised to ensure easy mixing and solubility when added to any protein shake. Plus for those like to consume their BCAA’s preworkout or intraworkout on their own, the TPW™ Product Development Team have introduced flavoured iBCAA powder: available now in Berry Blitz, Orange Burst and Green Apple Spike. Made using our unique all natural flavours and colours, flavoured iBCAA powder mixes into a fruity cordial drink that’s not only refreshing but backed up with scientific support.

I mix with 300ml of water before a weights session or long session on the bike as well as adding to a breakfast naked protein shake with coconut milk, berries, super greens and cinnamon.
I bought the 'Berry Blitz' flavour, I was hesitant as I normally despise anything with sweeteners in it but this was ok, could not feel any real aftertaste and it was pleasant mixed with 150mls of cold water. I just mixed it in a glass with a fork (I was home :) ) and no problems. Will definitely buy again, thank you!!!!
So i'd bought the Apple Flavour and took 4 scoops with a Skimmed Milk Whey 90 Shake 450ml.
Drunk 200ml before workout, 100ml during workout and 150ml post workout. I have NEVER felt so fresh from lifting weights for 30 minutes in the gym. The BCAA's really do help your muscle tissues from breaking down.
Im pleasantly suprised how great this product is. Ive used it 4 times now.
A Whey Protein Shake with BCAA's is A MUST for any serious gym user wanting to achieve big results!
I hate swallowing tablets especially BCAA ones that are massive, I have also tried other BCAA powders which mostly have tasted disgusting.
As you can imagine I was sceptical, but one sip of the apple flavour and I was converted. The flavour is extremely refreshing with cold water and I'd rate the taste 10/10!
PLEASE NOTE the unflavoured product really is not tasty. Spend the extra bit and get some taste in there.
Mixing with other products does not remove the taste.
Good product, shame it's a bit aggressive on the oral intake.
Will be ordering flavored next time.
No I add the berry blitz flavoured ibcaa to my unflavoured whey 80 or unflavoured Ibcaa to my caramel flavoured whey (which is even better as it takes away the too sugary taste)
The mix is just fine and I take it before and after every workout
pre workout, intra workout and post workout
i have noticed less fatigue, doms and an increase in energy when working through sets
Berry Blitz tastes good and not bitter like others i have tried.
i like mine a bit thinner and mix it with 200ml of water only.
Will order again once ive used this batch
As I said you have to get used to the taste if not mixing into a flavoured shake (I take it with water during my workout) but ultimately with this product it is about performance not taste so it gets top marks from me!
