Protein King’s Best BCAA 2014

Intra-workout supplements are vital to maximise your training efforts – leading to better results in the gym, better recovery out of the gym and overall faster progress towards your performance or aesthetic goals. BCAA supplements also have their place for professional and amateur athletes as well – they’re not just suitable for bodybuilders or powerlifters.

Continuing on with our 2014 Supplement Awards, we have a huge number of products to choose from for our Best BCAA 2014. Judging for this category will be made on the following bases: Amino Acid Content, Purity (ie lack of filler ingredients), Taste and Value for Money, for an overall score out of 40. Here are our picks for Best BCAA 2014:

5) Mutant BCAA 9.7

Amino Content – 9/10
Purity – 8.5/10
Taste – 8/10
Value for Money – 7.5/10
OVERALL – 33/40

The Mutant brand makes our 2014 Supplement Awards list yet again, with Mutant BCAA 9.7. Mutant BCAA offers a (you guessed it) 9.7g dose of amino acids out of an 11.6g scoop, which is pretty good. With a nice selection of flavours and around $1.30 per serve, it’s a solid contender for Best BCAA 2014.

4) Allmax Nutrition Aminocore

Amino Content – 8/10
Purity – 9/10
Taste – 8/10
Value for Money – 8.5/10
OVERALL – 33.5/40

Allmax Aminocore is a simple, but excellent intra-workout supplement. It combines the three BCAA’s in a 9:6:5 ratio, with over 8g of BCAA’s per serve. At 90% amino acids it’s one of the highest-purity amino acid products on the market, and comes in at around $1.10 per serve, which is great!

3) Controlled Labs Purple Wraath

Amino Content – 9/10
Purity – 8/10
Taste – 8/10
Value for Money – 9/10
OVERALL – 34/40

Purple Wraath is considered around the world as one of the best intra-workout supplements available, thanks to an intelligent blend of essential amino acids (EAA’s) and an endurance complex to support your performance. With 9.7g of active ingredients per 12g serve, it’s a little low in purity, although you’re getting a hefty dose of key ingredients that taste good and cost around $0.83/serve, which is excellent.

2) BSN Amino X

Amino Content – 9/10
Purity – 8/10
Taste – 8/10
Value for Money – 9.5/10
OVERALL – 34.5/40

BSN really hit the mark with Amino X - it can’t be faulted in any one of our measures. With an excellent 10g of amino acids per serve, 82% active ingredients, four nice flavours and coming it at $0.80 per serve (for the large size), Amino X is really an excellent product.

1) Core Nutritionals Core ABC

Amino Content – 10/10
Purity – 9/10
Taste – 9.5/10
Value for Money – 8.5/10
OVERALL – 37/40

Amazing. That’s the most fitting word to describe every scoop of Core Nutritionals Core ABC. With an incredible 17.5g of active ingredients out of a 20g serve, with some of the most amazing BCAA flavours you’ll taste and at around $1.30 for a whopping 20g serve, Core ABC is hands-down the best BCAA Supplement of 2014!
