MusclePharm BCAA 3:1:2 Powder Review

MusclePharm’s research and development team is one of the most advanced and innovative in the industry, responsible for some excellent ingredient blends, and some of the world’s leading sports nutrition products. Such products as Assault, Combat Powder and Recon are staples in many athletes’ protocols, and MusclePharm continuously strives to create bigger and better supplements.

BCAA 3:1:2 is the new powdered version of the BCAA 3:1:2 capsule product, one of the core supplements in the MusclePharm range. With a specific ratio of branched chain amino acids that (as far as we know) only MusclePharm uses, BCAA 3:1:2 is instantly recognisable as a MP staple, helping athletes of all ages and skill levels boost their recovery, muscle growth and anti-catabolic abilities.

MusclePharm BCAA 3:1:2 Powder Key Ingredients

  • BCAA’s – The only active ingredients in BCAA 3:1:2 are the three branched chain amino acids – leucine, isoleucine and valine. These three key aminos are found in most high protein foods, and specifically in higher ratios in foods like meat and dairy. The branched chain amino acids are responsible for a wide variety of functions within the human body, and specifically for athletes, their ability to support muscle growth and reduce muscle breakdown are key. While most BCAA supplements deliver a 2:1:1 or 4:1:1 ratio of leucine to isoleucine to valine, MusclePharm prefers a 3:1:2 ratio – believing that valine is a little more important to your overall results.

MusclePharm BCAA 3:1:2 Powder Flavours & Sizes

There are currently three flavours of BCAA 3:1:2 Powder – Blue Raspberry, Watermelon and Unflavoured, each in a 215g (30 serves) container.

MusclePharm BCAA 3:1:2 Dosage

Each serve of BCAA 3:1:2 is 7.16g, which provides 3g leucine, 1g isoleucine and 2g valine. Optimal dosing is one serving 1-3 times daily, depending on your protein intake and your exercise output, and as usual, we’d recommend these servings as close as possible to your workouts to support your muscle tissues.
