Enhanced Human Performance (EHP) Labs has been blazing a scorching trail in the sports nutrition industry with their innovative supplements. Beyond BCAA is certainly no exception to the rule. This formulation complements their thermogenic protein powders, pre-workouts and other cutting-edge supplements quite nicely indeed.

 

Lets have dig and see how EHP Labs Beyond BCAA measures up, especially when it comes to supporting gains and aiding recovery. We've done the hard yards here folks and given this product a good trial run. Not that it was actually hard in reality; Beyond BCAA goes down like liquid gold.

Key Features

This formula mainly consists of an optimal 2:1:1 branched chain amino acid (BCAA) ratio. These BCAAs are essential to muscle function, and supplementing them, particularly with this ratio, is ideal for both muscle recovery and growth.

 

Supplementing with EHP Labs Beyond BCAA will help you to develop lean muscle mass by promoting muscle protein synthesis, while its anti-catabolic nature works to limit muscle tissue breakdown. It also helps with recovery after training, as it works to limit the build up of lactic acid and lessens muscle soreness.

 

Ingredients and Dosage

As we've mentioned the main ingredient is the 2:1:1 optimal ratio BCAA - these consist of leucine, iso-leucine and valine, respectively.

These include essential B vitamins, electrolytes, citrulline and Alpha HICA. These work to deliver nutrients and energy to you while you work out, promoting good stamina and endurance.

 

The dosage is 1 scoop to 350ml cold water, or, if you are going to be training for very long or at high intensity, 2 scoops with 600ml cold water. You can either consume this throughout your training or prior to cardio exercise, take it with meals, or simply have it at any time in the day.

 

Pros and Efficacy

The use of 2:1:1 optimal ratio BCAAs in this formula is what makes it so effective - supplementing with these during a workout is the best way to strengthen your muscles and improve on your gains and overall results. This is particularly important if you are a high intensity trainer, working with large and heavy volumes, as you muscle protein will break down faster.

 

EHPLabs Beyond BCAA is excellent at promoting muscle growth and aiding recovery. However, heavy lifters may need the double scoop to make it effective. This is a bit of a negative, as you get fewer servings. Despite this, the quality of the product makes it worth it.

 

Flavours and Mixability

Beyond BCAA comes in six refreshingly fruity flavours - Strawberry Daiquiri, Kiwi Strawberry, Pineapple, Passion Fruit, Mango and Paradise Fruits. They all taste absolutely awesome!

 

What's the absolute best flavour? That's a tough one, strawberry daiquiri is bold and full flavoured, certainly uniquely delicious. Pineapple delivers just the right amount of bite without being too tart.

 

It goes without saying that each of them has to be experienced as new iterations of what, at first glance, would seem like a fairly standard flavour range. So the ball is really in your court here folks, though there's no need for despair because they're delicious. They also mix easily so you don't have to worry about clumps or leftover powder.

 

Final Verdict!

Overall, EHP Labs Beyond BCAA is an excellent product that we would highly recommend, particularly if you are a serious trainer looking to maximise your gains while minimising muscle soreness.

 

And with 6 amazing flavours to experiment with, you'll be itching for that next refreshing sip during training (not a beta-alanine itch).
