Description
  • The Most Anabolic BCAA Formula*
  • 4:1:1 Leucine Loaded
  • Increased Muscle Growth*
  • Improved Recovery*
MHP’s BCAA 3300 is a super-anabolic Branched chain Amino Acid complex formulated in a powerful 4:1:1 ratio (leucine: isoleucine: valine) for maximum muscle building and recovery. This highly anabolic ratio sets MHP’s BCAA 3300 apart from other formulas that use the outdated 2:1:1 ratio. The newest muscle-building and performance research shows that leucine is the most anabolic of all aminos and activates the mTOR anabolic pathway to increase protein synthesis for enhanced muscle growth and repair.*

BCAAs are essential amino acids, which means the body cannot make them and they must be supplied through food or supplementation. An athlete’s requirement for BCAAs is even higher than that of ordinary individuals because they serve as “building blocks” for muscle tissue and are also utilized for energy. BCAA 3300’s higher levels of leucine, in conjunction with isoleucine and valine, allows for higher anabolic activity and optimal BCAA replenishment for athletes. Additionally, BCAA 3300 has a timed release delivery to provide a continual supply of these key amino acids for optimum anabolic and anti-catabolic effects.*

MHP’s BCAA 3300 is the most scientifically advanced anabolic BCAA formula available and is a must for all serious bodybuilders and athletes!*

Health Notes

Branched-Chain Amino Acids

Branched-Chain Amino Acids
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Athletic Performance and Mental Decline During Exercise at Extreme Temperature
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Some research has shown that branched-chain amino acids help prevent muscle loss at high altitudes, prolong endurance performance in the heat, and improve exercise-induced declines in mental functioning. (more)
Athletic Performance and Post-Exercise Infection at Extreme Temperature
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Some research has shown that branched-chain amino acids may support immune fuction and improve infection at high altitudes and prolong endurance performance in the heat. (more)
Kidney Failure
Dose: Refer to label instructions
(more)
Athletic Performance and Mental Decline During Exercise at Extreme Temperature
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Some research has shown that supplemental branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) (typically 10 to 20 grams per day) do not result in meaningful changes in body composition,1 nor do they improve exercise performance or enhance the effects of physical training.2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 However, BCAA supplementation may be useful in special situations, such as preventing muscle loss at high altitudes and prolonging endurance performance in the heat.8, 9 One controlled study gave triathletes 6 grams per day of BCAA for one month before a competition, then 3 grams per day from the day of competition until a week following. Compared with a placebo, BCAA restored depleted glutamine stores and immune factors that occur in elite athletes, and led to a reported one-third fewer symptoms of infection during the period of supplementation.10 Studies by one group of researchers suggest that BCAA supplementation may also improve exercise-induced declines in some aspects of mental functioning.11, 12, 13

Kidney Failure
Dose: Refer to label instructions

The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAAs are considered essential amino acids because human beings cannot survive unless these amino acids are present in the diet.

    Comments about MHP® BCAA 3300:

    The product works, but the pills are extremely big and hard to swallow. Since the serving size are 4 pills, you really start to dislike them after a while. I wouldn't recommend them even though they do their job.

      Comments about MHP® BCAA 3300:

      I've been taking MHP's BCAA's for a while now and I have not a single complaint about it. I take mine 45 mins before my training to keep my muscles rejuvenated while enhancing my performance. BCAA's are excellent during a workout so I take this prior to my workout. This product is also great before bedtime since you are at a fasted state while you sleep, MHP's BCAA's will prevent muscle loss.
