Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000 Caps contains a potent balance of Branched Chain Amino Acids which are building blocks of muscle mass and size. Metabolized directly in the muscle, BCAAs, may improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acid groups for repair and rebuilding.
The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's), so named because of their unique branched chemical structure, are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds. In recent times, these amino acids have been investigated for their potential anti-catabolic (preventing muscle breakdown) and anabolic (muscle building) effects.

I wouldn't rate these BCAAs very highly for a number of reasons. Although they're cheap, they have nowhere near enough leucine, isoleucine and valine per serving. Other successful BCAAs I've tried literally have ten times as much per serve. For this reason, the caps didn't make any noticeable effect for me after training. I also don't like how they are delivered in caps. To match the right amount of leucine etc you need three servings per day... that's six caps in total. I prefer just having one powdered serving of BCAA to sip on while I'm working out. Tastes better and way less of a demand of things to remember.
