We source the highest quality BCAA from medical grade production facilities in China as do all leading supplement companies including Optimum Nutrition. To be honest, there are very few BCAA producers outside of China and their product quality and claims do not stack up when researched thoroughly. We only deal with credible and reliable international suppliers with who we have developed a great working relationship with over time. We regularly test our amino acid products to ensure their purity and quality.
All our BCAA and other products are blended and packed at our export-grade production facility in North Brisbane.
We have dispatch warehouses in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. We dispatch via Australia Post and Fastway. Delivery takes 1-3 days in metropolitan regions when delivered by Fastway. Orders shipping Australia Post are subject to their usual delivery times.
BCAA is an acronym that stands for Branched Chain Amino Acids. Amino acids are the natural building blocks of protein and they have many vital roles within the body. There are 20 different amino acids that we need to be healthy. Of these 20, 9 are considered ‘essential’ meaning they can’t be made within our body and must be consumed as part of a healthy diet. Of these essential amino acids, 3 are branched-chain amino acids. The three branched-chain amino acids are called leucine, isoleucine, and valine (in 2:1:1 ratio). They are called branched-chain amino acids because they have a branch-like structure. Their structure means that they are not processed in the liver before entering the blood stream. Instead, they directly enter the blood stream and can be immediately used for protein synthesis and energy production.
There are several BCAA benefits. Due to their rapid absorption into the blood stream, BCAA maximise muscle growth and repair, and fuel training. BCAA may help reduce fatigue during training, reduce muscle soreness, increase muscle mass, and lower blood sugar levels. BCAA comes in powder form providing you with a convenient BCAA drink.
When taken, BCAA are rapidly absorbed by the gut and directly enter the bloodstream. BCAA are then used for muscle building and repair or for energy production. BCAA’s can comprise of up to one-third of amino acids within muscle tissue. BCAA are also used as fuel by your muscles during training. Taking BCAA before and during training can decrease the breakdown of muscles and fuel your muscles to increase performance.
BCAA should be taken by anyone who wants to maximise their muscle growth or performance in training. It may be a particularly important supplement for vegans and vegetarians who minimize their intake of natural sources of BCAA from animal products.
VPA BCAA 211 is the best pure BCAA supplement. Sourcing pure amino acids from the best producers, we mix them onsite in the ideal 211 ratio to produce BCAA which will power your workout and maximise muscle synthesis and repair.
BCAA 2:1:1 is a combination of two parts leucine to one part isoleucine and one part valine, hence the ratio 2:1:1 and name. Of all the amino acids, leucine is the most researched due to having the greatest impact on muscle growth and repair, and the ratio of 2:1:1 has been proven to have the greatest impact of muscle protein synthesis.
Our BCAA 211 is an unflavoured, natural product. This doesn’t mean the product is tasteless, instead it has a slightly sour or bitter taste of the natural amino acids. This flavour is easily masked by any flavoured liquids that you add the BCAA too. However, the flavour of BCAA 211 is so mild that it can also be taken in water alone. If you are after a flavoured product, take a look at our BCAA 7000 product instead.
Unfortunately, we do not have samples of BCAA 211 available. You can view our sample range here.
As VPA BCAA211 is unflavoured, it can be mixed with any other VPA products. You can add BCAA to water, milk, juice, or electrolyte drinks - pretty much anything you want. Many people will add BCAA to their pre-workout before training, or to electrolytes during training for etc. The amount of liquid you add your BCAA211 to is up to you, but we do provide the guideline of 200ml.
One serve of VPA BCAA211 is 5g. One 200g tub of VPA BCAA 211 has 40 serves. One heaped teaspoon BCAA211 is approximately one serve, but we recommend weighing your product for accuracy. For optimal results one serve of BCAA211 should be taken daily either before or after training.
BCAA can be taken before, during or after exercise, in addition to any other protein shakes that you might be taking. The additional leucine in VPA BCAA 211 will instigate and maximise muscle synthesis when taken close to your workout. Ideally, 5g of BCAA 211 should be taken around 30 minutes before training.

VPA BCAA 2:1:1 is a pure BCAA supplement with no added flavours, colours or additives. It is perfect for anyone who wants to add an effective BCAA to their current supplement stack or any other drink they are taking. Being unflavoured it can be added to your preferred, pre- intra- or post-workout supplement without interfering with the flavour. BCAA 7000 is a complete intra or post-workout supplement. It combines the three BCAAs leucine, isoleucine and valine with electrolytes and B vitamins to boost energy and performance and replace the salts lost through sweat. BCAA 7000 comes in five flavours; lemon lime, raspberry, peach iced tea, mango passionfruit and grape bubblegum.
Yes you can. Most people won’t actually mix them together, but there is nothing stopping you from doing so. Many people take BCAA before or during training and a whey protein supplement after training.

“I have only got back into weightlifting after a long break, at 51 I am looking for any help I can get. First time I have added BCAA's to my stack, and I believe it has been really beneficial. My recovery has been much better and noticeably much less DOMS. I seem to be making good gains too.”

BCAA are generally safe and do not have side effects. However, it doesn’t hurt to consult a medical professional, especially if you have any underlying medical conditions.
Please ask a medical professional such as a GP or dietitian before using BCAA when pregnant or breastfeeding. There is nothing inherently unsafe in VPA products for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Please refer to this blog for more information.
