Loaded with Branched Chain Amino Acids (Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine) BCAAfuel builds and repairs lean muscle mass. This buffered muscle-building formula ensures optimal metabolic alkalinity & promotes healthy muscle growth without dangerous side effects! Use it before, during and after serious workouts to enhance muscularity. Fortified with fermented L-Citrulline & L-Glutamine BCAAfuel is the best BCAA powder in Canada. Made in Canada in a cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) facility that is licensed by Health Canada.
BCAA Fuel is the next generation of BCAA powder technology. Buffered with alkalizing minerals and fortified with other natural muscle-enhancing nutrients, BCAA Fuel utilizes the Power of pH to optimize muscle growth and energy production. Whatever your sport, BCAA Fuel is your best work-out partner.
What are the ingredients in BCAA Fuel & what do they do?Every ingredient in our synergistically formulated BCAA Fuel has been selected for its multiple benefits proven to enhance sports performance and workouts. This unique formulation yields noticeably rapid results without the detrimental acidity often associated with higher doses of Branched Chain Amino Acids.
Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine – Muscle Building BlocksThis potent trio of essential amino acids are called “Branched Chain Amino Acids” or BCAAs for short. BCAAs make up nearly a fifth of our body’s muscle proteins. Their unique chemical branching formation has been extensively studied and shown to improve recovery and reduce exercise-induced fatigue by enhancing the generation of mitochondria (our body’s cellular energy producer). BCAAs are also our most important protein energy source for exercise. They prevent muscle catabolism (breakdown) and help maintain strength for even the most intense and hard-core training.
L- Glutamine – Super Muscle RepairOne of the only amino acids able to cross the blood-brain barrier, L-Glutamine is also one of the most studied amino acids. It is proven critical to the repair and rebuilding of muscle tissue. Long-time body builders and professional athletes know firsthand the importance of including L-Glutamine in their sports nutrition programs and depend on it to help heal cases of traumatic injury.
L-Citrulline – Prolongs EnergyThis fermented amino acid is becoming more popular and appreciated for its ability to increase energy and improve athletic importance. Our bodies convert L-citrulline to L-arginine and nitric oxide, which acts to improve blood flow and reduce blood pressure. L-Citrulline promotes endurance during prolonged aerobic and anaerobic exercise. It also helps decrease muscle soreness after exercise.
Magnesium Carbonate * Potassium & Sodium Bicarbonates –Instant pH Power!BCAA Fuel uses the power of pH to help you optimize your workouts and maximize your results! Experience the instant buffering action of alkalizing minerals. Although they are great muscle-builders, proteins and amino acids often increase acidity in the body, impairing tissue oxygenation and repair. Buffered BCAA Blast helps balance pH, reduce uric acid (by- product of protein), and control the lactic acid “burn” so you can work harder, longer and better.

I've never used BCAA powders before, but I read a lot of reviews on how bitter they tasted, so I was pleasantly surprised and relieved to discover this product tastes decent, with an authentic lemon-lime flavour. It definitely does have that characteristic BCAA bitter taste, which tastes like sort of like un-coated aspirin, but the good quality of flavouring and the baking soda balance it out just enough to be easily tolerated. That said, don't expect it to taste like Kool-Aid, because this is an amino acid supplement, after all.
The ingredients are super clean, soy free (confirmed with Prairie Naturals), and sugar free, which are the reasons I chose this product in the first place. I use it as supplementation post weight workout to feed my muscles before my cardio session. Heads up: the product is sold by weight, so expect the jar to be about only 2/3 full.
