BCAAs 300g

Essential Fuel for the Athlete.
$27.00 (AUD)


NZ Protein's Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) is a 2:1:1 blend of the amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine respectively.

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and these three branched chain amino acids make up about 1/3 of amino acids present in our body. The body cannot produce them so they must be obtained from dietary consumption.

While other amino acids are metabolised in the liver, branched chain amino acids are metabolised in muscle.

BCAAs can be depleted from muscle under intense training or dieting, and a deficiency in any one of them may cause muscle loss (catabolism). Exercise can increase BCAA requirements.

This product is vegan - all amino acids are derived from plant source.

Branched chain amino acids may be beneficial for muscle gains and reducing muscle breakdown and soreness after intense exercise.

Branched Chain Amino Acid Benefits

Essential Fuel For the Athlete

Because branched chain amino acids are metabolised in skeletal muscle they may provide fuel (energy) for muscle during exercise.

BCAA supplementation may also fight fatigue during exercise too - BCAAs compete with tryptophan in the brain. Tryptophan is converted to serotonin in the brain, a chemical that can increase fatigue. During exercise BCAA levels reduce, which allows more tryptophan to enter into the brain.

This study from the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness in 2011 found that BCAA supplementation provided energy and reduced fatigue by 17% compared to a placebo group.

Therefore, supplementation with BCAAs during prolonged exercise may help to provide more energy for muscle and fight fatigue.

Reduce Muscle Waste

Muscle proteins are constantly broken down and re-synthesised. The amount of protein in muscle is the net balance between the rate of breakdown vs re-synthesis. This is called the Net Muscle Protein Balance (NBAL). Muscle mass = protein synthesis - protein breakdown. Wasting of muscle occurs when muscle protein breakdown is higher than the re-synthesis.

This is especially the case when dieting as decreased energy intake can cause the body to use muscle to provide energy (catabolic).

Supplementing with branched chain acids during these times may help to slow or even prevent muscle waste by increasing protein synthesis and reducing breakdown.

Reduce Muscle Soreness

Some studies have found that BCAAs taken just prior, during, and/or immediately after exercise may reduce exercise induced muscle damage - also known as Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).

This is because branched chain amino acids can reduce the impact of the enzymes creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase after prolonged exercise. These enzymes are associated with muscle damage.

Therefore supplementing with BCAAs just prior, during, and/or immediately after prolonged exercise may assist with reducing damage in muscles and soreness. Results tend to vary with diet, gender, and level of physical activity.

Muscle Building

BCAAS have anabolic (growth promoting) effects in muscle as they stimulate muscle protein synthesis, and help again protein breakdown. This is especially for leucine, which is primarily involved in muscle protein synthesis for muscle growth and recovery. Studies have shown leucine to be the most anabolic (growth promoting) amino acid for muscle growth and recovery.

loose BCAA powder

When Should I take BCAA?

Protein powders already contain naturally occurring branched chain amino acids. Whey protein in particular has high BCAA content, so when can taking a BCAA supplement help (if at all)?

BCAA supplements are free form amino acid powders - in other words, they get absorbed by the body without having to be digested first. Protein powder, on the other hand, must be digested first for the amino acids to be absorbed. They should not replace protein powder, as protein powders generally contain all of the essential and non-essential amino acids needed for growth and development. Rather, because BCAA supplements are much faster acting, they may help to maximise recovery and protein sythesis after prolonged exercise. 

If your protein intake is not high enough, or if on a calorie restricted diet especially, then supplementation with BCAA may assist against muscle protein breakdown.

Branched Chain Amino Acid Foods

Food sources of each BCAA includes:

  • Leucine - red meat, chicken, pork (pork has the ideal ratio of BCAAs), nuts and seeds, soy.
  • Isoleucine - meats, eggs, fish, cheese, nuts and seeds, seaweed.
  • Valine - soy, cheese, fish, meats, vegetables.

BCAA Side Effects

BCAAs are generally well tolerated without side effects for most people. Those with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or maple syrup urine disease should not take BCAAs.

BCAA toxicity is nearly impossible and total dosages of 15-35 grams per day (including foods) seem generally safe.

For its potential anti-catabolic benefits during intense training or when dieting, take one serving immediately before, during, or after exercise and possibly one other serving while fasting (ie before bed or in the morning on an empty stomach).


Mix one scoop (~5g) in 250-500ml of water or other beverage, or use as directed.

BCAA Ice-Blocks

With warmer weather fast approaching why not get a bit creative with your supps. BCAA ice blocks. Simple, delicious and good for the gains.

BCAA into ice blocks


Branched chain amino acids may be beneficial for muscle gains and reducing muscle breakdown and soreness after intense exercise.

BCAAs are found naturally occuring in protein foods and there are conflicting studies on their benefits but exercise can increase BCAA requirements. BCAAs can be depleted from muscle under intense training or dieting, and a deficiency in any one of them may cause muscle loss (catabolism).

BCAA supplements are free form amino acids meaning they don't need to be digested and are absorbed very rapidly - and much faster than with protein powders, so may be beneficial to have immediately before, during, or immediately after prolonged exercise for maximum gains.

This stuff is as water soluble as concrete. Not sure what the deal is but it won't mix in water.

The orange is nice! I don't find issues with it dissolving well, just needs a good stir. Come on people. lol.

Love the fact that I can buy unflavoured bcaas. I dilute in a full water bottle and find that though there is a slightly unpleasant aftertaste it's no worse than flavored varieties.
Review by: Alyson on Wed, Oct 11, 2023 9:49 AM
Mixes well, I have this in a litre of water and drink throughout my workout - flavour is a bit plain but it could be because I dilute it too much.

Review by: Judith on Wed, Aug 30, 2023 12:30 PM
I'm sure it does what it needs to but I got the flavourless version because I wanted to put it in my protein shake. It tastes horrible lol. I even tried to just 'shot' it after I blended it into about 100mls of water, almost vomited. Its so nasty. My husband uses it in his protein shake and just puts up with it but definitely going to be getting the capsules or the flavoured one in the future :)
Review by: Danni on Wed, Jul 26, 2023 12:05 PM
This stuff doesn’t like to mix. A teaspoon straight in the mouth with a gulp of water works.

I added it to my post workout supplement so can’t say if it does much on its own.

These are a game changer! I can't believe I never used these before. I'm a 50 year old woman and need to push hard to build and keep lean muscle mass. Since I stopped using whey protein powder, I was looking for something to supplement the faba bean powder leucine levels. When I drink these, my brain feels clearer and sharper, I have more energy and they taste delicious. I use these before and after training and already seeing positive changes in my physique - I'm actually getting leaner while in peri-menopause! It IS possible ladies! Lift heavy shit, ditch the steady state cardio with SIT and get your leucine (and lots of real food too of course!)

Peach flavor has an awesome taste, lime flavor not so much. Bad thing about putting this in any drink bottle, is it leaves a bad taste in your drink bottle that doesn't seem to disappear with washing.

I get the feijoa flavor and I find this one is less sweet than the other popular amino supplements on the market. Great value in terms of amino content; NZprotein isn't packing in any other bits like caffeine and electrolytes so percentage wise you get more out of a couple scoops of the supplement. Price per gram is very competitive as well. Quick and free domestic shipping, any questions are always answered very quickly!

Flavour’s good, but 1scoop’s volume is much low. Need more volume of the powder so that it will taste better with 800ml of water. NZPROTEIN REPLY: we have new flavours coming and they're formulated to put in a whole drink bottle
Review by: Swapnil on Wed, Mar 31, 2021 3:24 PM

I'd read that BCAA helps prevent delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) which I have suffered from a lot. It worked much better than I could have hoped for. The effect was almost immediate. Can't recommend this powder highly enough.
Tastes pretty good too (Citrus Blast flavour)

The citrus flavour is waaaay better than the feijoa. I wasn't really sure if this helped much, but after forgetting to take it during 1 workout after months of consistent use, I was WAY more sore the next day than I usually would be. Such good value for money and I also love that it's not too sweet and pumped full of artificial colours.
Review by: Courtney on Tue, Nov 3, 2020 11:26 AM
I can’t believe how much my after workout aches are reduced with taking this! Amazing. My only disappointment was to find it had artificial sweetener in it. So sad it’s not sweetened with stevia or erythritol when we’re trying to be healthy.

Review by: Leb on Thu, Sep 3, 2020 8:41 AM
I was very unsure if I need BCAA. I workout 6 days a week (combo of HIIT with weights) and my calorie intake is around 1200-1400kcal. I get sore sometimes after heavy workouts. I started to take the BCAA after workout. Not a huge fan of the Feijoa flavour, so I only add 200ml of water. And WOW! My body is recovering so well and I am not sore next day. Def recommend it to anyone who is challenging their bodies on different levels.

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

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.

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.

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.
