Description
Dietary Supplement
  • 5000mg of Micronized BCAA to Enhance Anabolism
  • 3:1:1 Ratio of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine
  • Fastest Delivery of Rapid Absorbing BCAA
Properformance RapidDrive BCAA 5000 features our most advanced RapidDrive Amino Acid Technology. These Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) have been pulverized, or "micronized," from large molecules into smaller particles that are easier to absorb and deliver fast fuel for powerful performance. Now you can fully power your muscles to new levels for optimum performance.

BCAA-leucine, isoleucine and valine- are critically important for stimulating muscle protein synthesis, reducing protein breakdown and preserving mucle glycogen stores. The body uses these essential amino acids as fuel during exercise.

Using Pro Performance RapidDrive BCAA 5000 can help maintain and rapidly replenish BCAA stores. Each serving supplies 5000mg of pure BCAA and mixes easily in any beverage or sports drink.

GNC's Product Development Scientists were challenged to create an advanced delivery form of amino acid supplements, a critical sports nutrition component that can be used in the regimen of top athletes. The result of these research efforts led to the creation of the RapidDrive Amino Series, a core group of superior and fast-absorbing amino acids for rapid muscle fueling results. This unique technology is much more advanced compared to regular amino acids. Because our team is dedicated to continually improving sports nutrition products, the Pro Performance RapidDrive Amino Series helps you, the athletes, get fast fuel for your muscles.

works fine, tastes bad

Comments about GNC Pro Performance® RapidDrive BCAA 5000:

I mix it with the fruit punch and it's not bad. By itself, it tastes awful like all of the other "unflavored" supps. I take this intra-training as my pre and post shakes have good amount of bcaa's in it already.

Comments about GNC Pro Performance® RapidDrive BCAA 5000:

I really like this BCAA product. I take a scoop with a protein shake after morning workouts. My body feels fresh and recovered and ready for a workout the next morning. The taste is okay but keep in mind leucine is made from fermented corn which probably gives it the sour/bitter taste. I will probably purchase the product again.

      • Dietary Replacement

      Comments about GNC Pro Performance® RapidDrive BCAA 5000:

      I bought this "un-flavored" thinking I would mix it with a shake and was shocked the first time I had it. The taste is very strong/ bitter and made me gag even when mixed with a shake or fruit in the blender. Also the powder is very fine/ talc like and it puffs all over each time you open & close the container. I will suffer through the rest of the container since it cant be returned but will buy in tablet form or another brand next time. It does work well for recovery but the down sides out-weigh the pros.

      Comments about GNC Pro Performance® RapidDrive BCAA 5000:

      When I bought this product I expected a neutral flavored powder, you know something that tasted like nothing. That was my idea of non-flavored. The taste was a shocker. I tried to pre workout mixed with milk and a berry flavored enzyme/energy mix. That didn't even come close to covering up the taste. Most of the time I mixed the product with Muscle Milk Vanilla or Strawberry in my post work out shakes. Muscle Milk tastes really good and Rapid Drive even made it taste bearably bad. I ordered the fruit punch so I can drink Rapid Drive by itself pre-workout. Leucine is a precursor of HMB which has been shown to increase muscle mass in pigs. I just drink it most of the time with the pretense that it's good for me or will help achieve my goals.

      Like other users have said do yourself a favor and try the fruit punch version. I felt queezy every time I tried to take it. It is comparable to ground up chalk and is very overpowering no matter what I've mixed it with so far. Other than that, great product.

          Unflavored is not...unflavored. It tastes like youre chewing advil or something. I've found it somewhat tolerable when mixed with chocolate protein and chocolate syrup. (not exactly an ideal thing to add when dieting but it helps you choke it down) When added to just the protein the "unflavored" flavor of it is still almost too overpowering.
