Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replenish your muscles From what I have read this amino acid is very good to replenish your muscles before you start your workout and after your done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy pill to swallow I've taken several different brands of BCAAs, and these are way easier to swallow to compared to many of the "horse pill" versions out there. I've already reordered!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Most important purchase. I believe Amino Acids are most important for my health (and yours).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I've used Beverly International Glutamine Select with BCAA's. It gave me energy and is a fantastic product. However, it's not very cost effective for my family's budget. Ajipure BCAA is great replacement. I use it mostly to maintain my energy levels since I can't drink coffee/caffeine. I get a nice steady energy from them when I take 3 at a time. This will last most of the day. I workout, eat well but am a busy mom of 4. I HIGHLY recommend these for anyone needing an extra boost to get through the day. I also appreciate Swanson's price and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rarer than you might think After doing some research on BCAAs, I determined that the AjiPure brand was the way to go. I won't go into particulars here, but trust me, some of the others are not what you'd want to ingest. It's actually difficult to find the AjiPure BAAs in capsule form without other added ingredients. Swanson is one of the few options and the price is reasonable. Do your homework on BCAAs and you'll see why this is the way to go. You can get them cheaper by buying bulk powder, but they are a bitter bitter lot these BCAAs. So five stars for convenience on this variety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from muscle recovery & support i have noticed a clear improvement in muscle recovery following very hard workouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product works. Period Why pay extra for the brand names when what you really need is a product that works. I have found this product to deliver the same results as the name brands. I usually take two pills after my workout and it gets the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BCAs for the win This is a supplement,and as such knowing when to supplement with a BCA is important such that one is not wasting their money quaffing caps they dont need to be eating. That said, this hits all the BCA basics and there's no weird taste or after taste. No burps or gassy side effects either. One of these lasts me about 3 months, though I carefully monitor my macro nutrients. BCAs for me help cover the days where my foods are lacking. It takes 4-6 days for muscle to repair/grow and nutrition needs to be maintained that entire time. This is a good product and at a good value to help get you there, I have been using it about a year, though this bottle is an updated version of another BCA product swanson was selling, same nutrient data.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Physical Rebuilding I find this useful for helping to rebuild my body tissues after vigorous physical exercise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used tis product for the past 5 years. I highly recommend this product. My son who is a exercise science major from UNC recommend that my husbands take these amino's and he also insisted that we purchase them from Swanson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Results I've been using this product for over a year now and have seen subtle but definite results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BCAA's Everyone knows the benefit of BCAA's...But pharm grade for this price is excellent. I take them everyday after my workout.
Date published: 2012-08-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product. A nice way to get some BCAA's into you're diet. Helps retain muscle and although this might not be exactly enough BCAA's you say, you have to take into account the better bio availability here.. so it might look like a small amount on paper but it could just be all your body needs and the price can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product After using this product for about two months with diet and exerercise I am noticing slightly stronger muscles.
Date published: 2010-04-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have weak muscles on my whole upper body and even a small exercise put them into a non-obedient mood right away and next morning I turn into a stiff-wooden statue. But as some "more developed" friends told me, I tried this and I can't beleve how simple solution it is. It works, I get up as myself in the morning, not as Pinocchio and I know it is not just the ease, but actually I get some use from the exercise.
