What are BCAA and what do BCAAs do? The Best BCAA Protein Supplement

At Bulk Nutrients we offer the best BCAA supplement in Australia with BCAA Recovery. Here’s why...

  1. BCAA Recovery combines a unique blend of ingredients that work to keep you anabolic during your workout and assist your recovery after.
  2. Contains a scientifically validated dose of BCAAs (10g) at the most verified ratio studied (2-1-1) which is considered the best BCAA ratio.
  3. Includes Citrulline Malate which can improve muscular endurance.
  4. The additions of sodium, electrolytes and potassium help keep you hydrated.

What do BCAAs do?

Bulk Nutrients’ BCAA Recovery assists with muscle recovery, so you're ready for your next workout ().

BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) have long been studied, showing benefits in reducing muscle soreness, faster recovery time, reduced creatine kinase (which is a good indicator of recovery) and better retention of maximum muscular force ().

Bulk Nutrients also have BCAA 2-1-1 Capsules and Unflavoured 100% Pharmaceutical Grade Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). To support a restful nights sleep for additional recovery, combine BCAA Recovery with ZMA Capsules.

When’s the best time to take BCAAs?

We're glad you asked... simply mix 14.2 grams into any amount of water you preferer, around 500ml is best to sip on while training.

Make sure to finish your drink by the end of training to get the BCAA benefits.

Great tasting flavoured BCAAs

Unlike many other BCAA supplements on the market, Bulk Nutrients' BCAA Recovery taste spectacular.

Our Lemonade, Watermelon and Wild Berry flavours are refreshing and easy to drink during your workout or throughout the day.

We recently added three more spectacular flavours Apple & Blackcurrant, Passionfruit and Peach Iced Tea to our line-up, and yes, it's exactly as refreshing as they sound.

BCAA Recovery includes Citrulline Malate to improve the effectiveness of BCAAs

Citrulline Malate is included because of its ability to work in two ways:

  • It's been shown to reduce muscles soreness and increase workout performance and capacity.
  • It complements the BCAAs improving the body’s ability to utilise the BCAAs.

Supplementing with Citrulline Malate can also enhance the production of Arginine derived metabolites such as nitrite, creatinine, ornithine and urea.

Citrulline Malate has also been shown to increase muscular endurance (which means better training sessions) as well as increase ATP oxidation during exercise while reducing muscle soreness ().

A BCAA blend for ultimate endurance and recovery

Combining BCAAs in a validated dose with Citrulline Malate means users are likely to reap optimal benefits from both compounds, resulting in the best recovery possible, while our hydration matrix ensures effective electrolytes levels.

Frequently Asked Questions about BCAA Recovery

How does BCAA Recovery taste?

BCAA Recovery is flavoured and is generally considered to have a pleasant taste.

What is BCAA Recovery made from?

BCAA Recovery is derived from starches.

Are samples available of BCAA Recovery?

Yes, you can request a free sample of BCAA Recovery from our Free Sample page.

How is BCAA Recovery packaged?

BCAA Recovery is packaged in resealable 250g pouches.

Where is BCAA Recovery made?

Bulk Nutrients blends and packages all our products in our own manufacturing facility here in Australia.

We source our pharmaceutical grade amino acids from China, as do 99% of all supplement companies. See here for further information.

Is the packaging for BCAA Recovery recyclable?

In theory yes, but not in all council areas right now.

The REDcycle program has been discontinued, and the industry is working together to find a solution to continue recycling soft plastics. For now, we recommend checking with your local council, but most require you to put the packaging in your regular landfill bin.

The included scoop can be recycled as hard plastic in your local council pickup.

Can I receive a discount buying more than one of this product at once?

Absolutely! Price breaks for BCAA Recovery begin when you purchase 2 pouches of any flavour. Just add more than that to your cart to see the savings.

About Branched Chain Amino Acids

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are considered the most important amino acids for building muscle and speeding up recovery ().

BCAAs are made up of three essential amino acids: Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. In free form, they are more rapidly absorbed which means the process of anabolism (building muscle) can begin more quickly. BCAAs can also have a direct effect on reducing delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), which means down time between training sessions can be reduced.

A ratio of 2 (Leucine): 1 (Isoleucine): 1 (Valine) is generally considered the best ratio for muscle growth and recovery.

BCAAs help increases muscle protein synthesis

After strenuous exercise, protein is used to repair muscle damage. This process is called muscle protein synthesis (MPS) (). Increasing MPS levels means more protein can enter the muscles which can help stimulate muscle growth, aid in recovery and improve overall endurance. A recent study (), showed that individuals that consumed a BCAA supplement after resistance exercises had a 22% increase in MPS when compared with individuals who had a placebo.

BCAAs are perfect for recovery and endurance

Studies have shown that reducing DOMS and creatine kinase levels are good indicators of recovery ().

Citrulline Malate helps improve the effectiveness of BCAAs

Citrulline Malate (CM) is the combination of the amino acid Citrulline and Malate (an organic salt). A recent study shows () that CM helps enhance the use of BCAAs during exercise.

Other benefits of Citrulline Malate include:

  • Help improve anaerobic performance
  • Increased nitric oxide levels – improving blood flow, oxygen transportation and nutrient uptake.
  • Reduce fatigue and DOMS

Another study of Citrulline Malate () illustrates its effectiveness in increasing anaerobic performance and reducing DOMS.

Maximising the use of BCAAs

To maximise muscle growth, the body requires a complete protein source that contains all 20 amino acids. For this reason, to maximise results, it is recommended that BCAAs should be used in conjunction with a complete protein source, like a Whey Protein Powder.

When to take BCAAs?

Due to BCAAs ability to help prevent muscle and mental fatigue, it is a perfect supplement to use as an intra-workout.

However, BCAAs can be taken anytime of the day as an easy way to increase the amount of protein in your diet.

Branched Chain Amino Acids FAQs

What do BCAAs do?

BCAAs are Branched Chain Amino Acids. These are 3 of 9 Essential Amino Acids are considered the primary drivers for muscle growth and recovery (). L Leucine usually makes up 50% of a BCAA mix, with Isoleucine and Valine at 25% of the mix. BCAAs play a role in protein synthesis and can reduce fatigue when training.

Can I get all my BCAAs from protein?

Yes, and it is reported by many that optimal BCAA levels can be gained through a diet which is rich in protein.

Are BCAAs a waste of money?

If you are paying a lot for BCAAs then they likely do not represent good value for money when you could simply consume more protein.

Studies have shown increased time to exhaustion, and a reduced feeling of fatigue when supplementing with BCAAs. It is for this reason many people like to take BCAAs when they train, particularly if they want to avoid sugars and carbohydrates as an energy source.

Can I just take Leucine instead of BCAAs?

Leucine is the key driver of protein synthesis, while Isoleucine works by inducing glucose uptake into cells. Valine is understood to have some stimulant activity and influences immune health.

What is an effective dose size of BCAAs?

A typical dose of BCAAs is around 10 grams.
