BSN Amino X Reviews

Jacob News, Nutrition, Product Reviews 2 Comments

There’s a diverse range of BCAA powder products on the market today. If you are unsure as to what BCAA supplements actually do, I would recommend you read our information page on BCAA supplements HERE. Below is our BSN Amino X reviews. bsnAmino X comes from the makers of BSN. You are able to have it in various flavours and in the form of powder or caplets. It tastes delicious and even tastes good when you mix it with water, to me the taste was the thing that made this product worth while. It tasted really good, it was almost like I was drinking a proper drink, almost like a non alcoholic cocktail.

Let’s have a look at the nutritional information.

In the powder form, you will find you receive 10g of amino acid inter fusion. This is not as high as other products, however please be aware, where it may be lacking in content it makes up for in flavour. It’ best to have this product just before or after your workout. Taking before workout, you’ll find your energy rise allowing you to lift more. Increasing the quality of your workout and leads to muscle hypertrophy. Your muscles will be recovering at a much faster rate also. The availability of leucine in the mix ensures that the effects of BCAAs are maximised and that nothing is wasted.

I would rate this product 7.5/10. The flavour is great and by far the best I’ve encountered so far amongst other BCAAs. The only thing that lets this product down is the content of the BCAA, you get 10g for 1 scoop and compared to others such as Xtend or Purple Wrath you would have to up your doses to receive the same nutrition. Check out the reviews on amazon too for further back up it’s a good health and fitness product and deserves some further investigating.

  1. I do vaguely recall reading something about the benefits of consuming the amino acids rather than complete proteins. Is there a reason for this? Is it better absorbed into your body and utilised by your muscles? I have to confess, though, have never actually used a product like this. I have used protein powders, though. Are they not as effective?

      Hi Marcus,

      Thank you very much for your comment. Here’s an extract from our post on: What is a BCAA

      ” It is widely accepted that Branch-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAS) in particular leucine (remember leucine), not only increase protein synthesis, but also on a cellular level, increases the cells capacity for protein synthesis. In essence, you gain more cells synthesising protein and those cells will be synthesising more protein. The third and final excellent quality of BCAAs is that they reduce your catabolic rate, it stops your body breaking down muscle as fast. “

      Your body requires protein in order to grow and repair your muscles. However, to determine muscle mass gained or lost you need to consider this equation.

      Rate of Protein Synthesis – Catabolic Rate = Muscle Mass

      Simply, if you have more Protein synthesising than muscle breaking down, you will gain muscle mass. If you breakdown more muscle and don’t synthesise as much protein, you will loose muscle mass

      If you increase the rate of protein synthesis and reduce the catabolic rate by taking BCAAs, you are in turn maximising muscle mass gains.

      I hope this answers your questions. If you need any further assistance, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

      Many thanks for your time.
