Overview of Metabolic Nutrition Tri-PEP
Tri-PEP by Metabolic Nutrition is an intra-workout BCAA backed by a scientist as an owner. Metabolic Nutrition is a supplement company that reinvests their earnings into their products instead of their marketing.
Tri-PEP BCAA by Metabolic Nutrition is one of our all-time favorite intra-workout supplements. Metabolic Nutrition is known for their great supplements and Tri-PEP is no difference.
A proven 2:1:1 BCAA ratio of amino acids is linked by peptide bonds which forms a pharmaceutical grade BCAA product. On top of the great science packed into this product it’s taste is amazing.
Testing Results and Ratings
We reviewed Metabolic Nutrition Tri-PEP on five categories. We first start by looking at it’s ingredient profile. This portion of the review looks at the amount of aminos used, as well as the kind of aminos, the ratio and other ingredients involved in the making of this BCAA powder.
We then look at effectiveness. A high BCAA product will be effective. This is generally an extension of the profile section. The higher quality ingredients used at proper dosages, the more effective that product will be.
Then we move into the taste of the different flavors we’ve tried. We grade each flavor separately and average the scores for their overall taste rating. We were able to test out the following flavors: Lemonade & Grape.
Mixability refers to how well the powder mixes in 12oz of water. We use the shaker bottle test. This would be your typical Blender Bottle with the spiral chrome ball.
Finally, we talk about value. Value is the combination of profile, effectiveness, taste and mixability in relation to cost. Another part of value are the competitors and other versions of BCAA products on the market; both with and without caffeine.
Tri-PEP by Metabolic Nutrition gives you 10g of a scientific backed 2:1:1 BCAA ratio per serving (1 scoop) which has been proven to be the best in the supplement industry. On-top-of the accepted ratio, TRI-PEP uses peptide bonds to form this great intra-workout supplement. The one issue we have with the BCAAs here is we are fairly confident they are not fermented, meaning they can come from things like bird feathers and human hair.
By using peptide bonds with the isoleucine, leucine, and valine you are getting a pharmaceutical grade BCAA product OTC. The only negative we see in this product is the use of sucralose however it is needed with the flavoring profile.
Metabolic Nutrition’s Tri-PEP is one of our favorite intra-workouts ever created for the simple fact that it is effective. Our panel of reviews all agreed that this product helped improve endurance in their workout due to the hydration effects it has on the body.
Our panel felt more hydrated while drinking this during the workout allowing them to continue to workout at an intense pace. The 2:1:1 BCAA ratio helped improve muscle fatigue and soreness.
The taste of Tri-PEP is truly great. It is one of the tasting best intra-workout BCAA product our panel has ever tried. We preferred lemonade flavor over grape but you cannot go wrong with either. Lemonade is very refreshing…even if you’re not working out.
Mixability is a huge benefit to Tri-PEP by Metabolic Nutrition. With a couple shakes of a Blender Bottle this product fully dissolves into the water. Many other intra-workouts leave residue at the bottom of Blender Bottle because it does not fully dissolve into the liquid.
The container of Tri-PEP BCAA by Metabolic Nutrition contains 40 servings of 2:1:1 BCAA with 10g per serving (amazing!) The price for this product varies from site to site buy you’ll find it between $24 and $30. You can find more servings for less elsewhere, but you won’t find a better tasting BCAA product in our opinion.
