Evlution Nutrition BCAA Energy Review

Overview of Evlution Nutrition BCAA Energy

For those that are serious about strength training and getting the results you desire from your works outs, this review will be beneficial. As their are so many options out their today we are constantly looking for the edge.

Evlution’s nutrition BCAA energy is that edge which combines BCAAs in a 2:1:1 ratio with natural caffeine from coffee beans and green tea to give your workouts a real kick. Just one scoop contains 5 grams of BCAAs and 110mg without any calories, making it perfect for the fasting period either before a workout or to simply enhance your energy.

Pros and Cons

As Evlution’s BCAA energy contains caffeine, it makes for a great pre-workout for the fasting period. The last thing you want to do is to feel weak or lethargic because you haven’t eaten, so the combination of amino acids and caffeine helps to provide you with energy and protect your muscles from wastage. This is also why it can be used as an intra-workout supplement if your sessions take upwards of two hours to keep your strength and energy levels consistent.

However, the caffeine content is also its downfall. Caffeine has a half-life of around 5 hours, meaning that it sticks in your blood stream for around 10 hours after consuming. You’ll most likely feel the effects for around 6 hours, so it’s recommended not to take any caffeinated products from 4pm on wards to ensure you get a good night of rest.

As well as this, recent research has suggested that BCAAs might not be useful for the majority of the population who stick to shorter workouts or eat enough protein by the end of the day. Caffeine is an extremely well-research supplement that’s been proven to enhance physical and cognitive performance, but you can get that from a variety of sources.

Product Description and Benefits

Evlution have combined BCAAs and caffeine into one supplement to save you from having to buy each one separately. Not only is this cost-effective, but it makes for a powerful pre-workout for when you’re fasting as the BCAAs will prevent you muscles from breaking down whilst the caffeine will give you the boost that food can’t. For the same reason, it’s perfect for those who tend to have longer workouts lasting upwards of 2 hours where your energy starts to dwindle and your performance takes a hit. Sipping on this combination throughout your workout can help to prevent you entering into any mental or physical slumps.

How to Take Evlution Nutrition’s BCAA Energy

Depending on your situation and goals, mix 1-3 scoops with water or juice and drink either 30 minutes before your workout or sip throughout.

Overall Rank

Comparing this to ON’s casein blend, there’s one clear winner. Optimum Nutrition have the better brand reputation and proven results, though each product is used for different effects. Overall, the casein blend is a much better investment, but Evlution Nutrition’s BCAAs are better suited as a pre-workout specific supplement or if you practice fasting.

Sum up

So the sum up of Evlution Nutrition’s energy BCAA mix brings together a solid dose of both BCAAs and caffeine, but the product itself might not be useful if you make sure to eat enough protein throughout the rest of the day. Even if not, a protein-powder will be a better investment for you as you can use it for more occasions and it won’t affect your sleep quality. You can always use other caffeinated products, such as coffee or sugar-free energy drinks to provide energy before your workout. If you have the money, then investing in a protein powder and an effective pre-workout might be a better option.

  1. Hi Charlie,

    Nice review about BCAA energy. Also, thank you for the heads-up about the caffeine content. Do you know how the caffeine levels in BCAA compare to a cup of coffee? I am curious.

    Thank you,

    Matthew

    • Hi Matthew,

      Thanks for the reply, what I know about the coffee levels in the Evlution’s BCAA’S is that it’s sourced from green coffee and green tea to Support Focus and Recovery, so depending on your own tolerance and sensitivity to caffeine take as measured, I typically take this as I am working out and have on occasions taken it post work out and I slept well that night.
      Hope that helps?

  2. I just started working out more seriously from home as I do not have time to reach a gym with my busy schedule.I was looking something to help provide some more energy during my workouts. Not sure this Evlution Nutrition’s BCAA Energy would fit the bill as I do short 30 mins workouts after work at night. So thanks for the heads up about the pros and cons and the caffeine affect is key intel. Excellent post in any case.

    • Hi Eric,

      Thanks for leaving your comments, I would say due to the recovery and replacement of nutrients with the Evlution’s BCAA’S that this would still be a product that you can use, the great thing is that it aids in recovery and replacement of lost nutrients that you expel during your workouts, even as you are doing quick stints. Hope this helps?

  3. I have looked everywhere for a review of the Evlution Nutrition BCAA Energy and have to say this is the absolute best so far! I absolutely love the fact that it has 0 calories and 0 sugars. For me this is a no brainier and I’m going to get me some asap. I just checked the price and it seems affordable for what it offers. Thanks a bunch!

    • Hi thanks for leaving your comments, your right its a no brainier, great product and great quality and science behind the product, enjoy the product and if you need anything else let me know.

  4. Hey buddy thank you for sharing this review on this product:-)

    Very informative, and will help those who exercise regularly, and i like the fact that the caffeine is green coffee beans as I know these are much healthier.

    Great article mate, have a great day and all the success and prosperity and health that you desire.

    Kind regards.

    Dean.

    • Hi Dean,

      Thanks for leaving your comments, I think its important to not only train regularly as you do, but to also take supplements such the Evlution’s BCAA’S and the fact that they use green coffee beans helps and is a much cleaner process.
      Thanks again

  5. Hi! Thanks for the honest review of this product. I’m still breastfeeding but trying to lose the last bit of weight I gained from my pregnancy. This supplement won’t work for me on a number of levels. I don’t work out for more than an hour at a time. I simply don’t have the time in the day to do more. I’m avoiding caffeine so that knocks out a ton of supplements alone. And I eat plenty of protein.

    • Hi Tina,

      Thanks for the comments you left, I am goad to hear that your still working out you can build up your resistant and the time you work out for and eventually when you are ready to introduce something like a BCAA’S this may be a good option as it has low caffeine levels and no real crash.

      Thanks again.

  6. Hey Charlie!

    Great review! Very well researched! I have looked everywhere for a review of the Evlution Nutrition BCAA Energy product. Your review is the the absolute best I’ve found so far! I love that it has 0 calories and 0 sugars, very important to me. I’ll definitely be giving this one a try. Keep up the great work!

    • Hi Steve,

      Thanks for the comments you left, let me know how you go after you try the product as I have found it to be very smooth and no crash after you take it due to the low caffeine content.

  7. Hi Charlie,
    Thanks for the great review on Evlution bcaa.
    I made the mistake before of using a different product with a high caffeine content when I was going to the gym in the early evening. It certainly does stop you sleeping for a long time at night.
    Now I will only use if I’m working out in the mornings, which is mainly at weekends or If I have time before work during the week.
    This bcaa powder from Evlution definitely looks like it worth a try after reading your review as sometimes I know I will not be getting enough protein from other sources before the end of the day.
    Thanks,
    Michael

    • Hi Michael,
