Provides me with sustained energy during a workout.

Personally I was never a fan of BCAAS because I never thought I needed it. Take what I say which a pinch of salt, this is my anecdotal experience.
After taking a 2 year long break from working out due to injury, I decided to take some of these BCAA’s. I previously peaked at 200kg deadlift without the aid of any supplements.
If you’re in need of sustained energy to get through your workout, BCAAS will help you achieve that goal. BCAA’s however don’t give you the same dramatic effects as a preworkout does because it lacks caffeine. Their main importance is preventing muscle breakdown and increasing protein synthesis.
BCAAS are the essential amino acids your body requires for the maintenance and growth of muscle tissue and to prevent muscle break down.
The prevention of muscle break down is important because it stops your body from tapping into its own muscle tissue for energy.
This is why most people take BCAA’s during a workout rather than after it, since it supplies your muscles with building blocks it can use instead. This can also help with muscle soreness.
Whey protein is taken after a workout since it contains BCAAS as well. Therefore, I like to take BCAA’s especially if I have missed a meal.
Since incorporating BCAA’s into my diet, I have more energy, I have gained size and my muscle soreness subsides more quickly.
The supplement is “gold standard” so you know you’re getting the ingredients listed on the tub.
Since that you should be getting enough BCAA’s in your diet from food sources. I advise that instead of overusing and flushing your BCAA’s down the toilet, take them during your workout or when you have missed meals. Get yourself whey protein for after your workout.
The passionfruit flavour also tastes pretty good, quite sweet and chemically but it doesn’t taste too bad, you get used to it.
I highly recommend this.
