SSN’s BCAA capsules contain a potent and precisly balanced blend of the Branched Chain Amino Acids – L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine, which are important building blocks of lean muscle tissue. In addition to their lean muscle building properties, BCAA’s are metabolized directly in the muscle, and may thereby improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acids for repair and rebuilding. Clinical studies show that BCAA’s taken prior to exercise spares muscle BCAA reserves thereby providing an effective anti-catabolic (tissue sparing) effect, whilst BCAA’s taken post-exercise with a carbohydrate and protein shake, supports muscle building and recovery efforts.
To maximise the BCAA’s anabolic / anti-catabolic properties, consider adding Creatine Monohydrate to your supplement plan as well as increasing your daily protein intake by way of a high quality pure protein supplement such as SSN's 100% Whey Protein.

- Decent product for when starting out.Review by Johan (11 July 2014)
- PriceEffectivenessTasteThese capsules work great when you're new to BCAAs.
Easy to swallow
No bad after taste
Low BCAA per serving (5 capsules=2.5g)
Price can be deceiving. Better value can be had from other products.

- GreatReview by Jetaine Preston (18 September 2011)
- Great product. I felt the product working when combined with my pre work-out drink (Evox Muscle Punch 3DT), it provided much more SUSTAINED energy and i hardly felt tired. When used post workout, i noticed substantial increase in muscle recovery time.
Would def recommend.

- CAPS VS POWDERReview by Nick (10 August 2010)
- Good product, no complaints. But it seems as if ssn bcaa powder per serving has a higher value in grams of the bcaa complex compared to the ssn bcaa caps... The caps might last longer by a day or 2. Both cost the same so if you want to stretch your rands go for the caps, if you are looking for max nutritional value go for the powder....
- Great ProductReview by Johann (1 June 2010)
- I have used this product as a supplement for protecting my muscles during an extreme cutting/fat loss training cycle. It does take your body out of the catabolic state and surely is quite recommendable to anyone going on a strong caloriec deficit for fat loss purposes. Highly recommendable, good quality product.
