He and his company believe in making products that are made with the best ingredients that are not only healthy for you but don't make a major impact on our planet. Clean Machine offers a variety of products that are potent and natural. All of their products are plant-based and therefore, just about anyone can use them with little worry about consuming ingredients they are not comfortable with. They do not hide behind proprietary blends, meaning you will know exactly what and how much of each ingredient in your supplement. Trusting this brand is to know that you are getting natural products that really will help you with overall mental and physical well-being.


Most people don't expect their Branched Chain Amino Acid supplement to taste very good and as a matter of fact, we tend to expect that it is going to be terrible. This is not the case with this product. Consumers agree that it tastes great. It does not have the overly sweet taste that is commonly associated with this type of product. Likewise, while you may experience a slight aftertaste it is very minimal. We have all tried pre-workouts, BCAAs, or Protein powders that tasted so awful we ended up throwing have the jar away. You won't have that problem here. They have a great balance to their formula and in terms of taste, you won't be disappointed.


When it comes to flavor variety you aren't going to get many options with this product. You will only be able to choose from unflavored or Fruit Punch. The unflavored variety is excellent if you are wanting to mix this product with a different supplement that you already know you love the taste of. The consensus on the Fruit Punch is that it is quite delicious. It isn't overly sweet and does taste like Fruit Punch. While we know there is not much choice here it is nice that the flavor available is well-liked. It helps instill faith that if you decide to give it a try you won't hate how it tastes and end up throwing it in the trash because you can't choke it down.


Consistency pretty much all comes down to how well the powder mixes with your liquid. This product dissolves completely and relatively easily when mixed in a top quality blender bottle. There is no fear of being left with a sandy textured drink full of little clumps of your supplement. Additionally, you won't have to be concerned about getting all of your supplement, because it dissolves completely you won't have part of it stuck to the side of your water bottle. Overall, the consistency of this product is smooth and good. There should be no issue swallowing it down daily and we bet you will go from dreading to looking forward to your BCAA supplement once you give this one a try.


Branched Chain Amino Acids are scientifically proven to aid in muscle health. They help prevent muscle breakdown, increase your recovery time, and promote lean muscle growth. This product will do all of those things and it does them very well. It also contains powdered Coconut water. This will help you with cell hydration and the replacement of lost electrolytes after a hard and very sweaty workout. Consumers agree you will notice the difference quickly after using this product and that it is not only effective in the beginning but is also very effective with long-term use. The formula they use is well-researched and will work for its intended purpose.


This product does carry a few ingredients other than the three Branched Chain Amino Acids that basic BCAA supplements carry. You will be getting Calcium, Chloride, Potassium, and Sodium. As well, it contains Valine, Isoleucine, Leucine, and Organic Coconut Water Powder. These ingredients together make a great blend and will aid you in not only muscle health and hydration but also in overall health and fitness. There are a few other ingredients included for consistency and flavor. These are Citric Acid, Beet Root Powder for color, Stevia, Sea Salt, and Natural Flavors. This is a pretty simple list and it is full of understandable and worthy ingredients.


While this type of supplement is not necessarily known for helping you with your performance, it actually does. When your muscles are super sore because of a long training session you will naturally not perform at peak form. The reduction or elimination of soreness will allow you to hit it at your top level each and every day you decide to head to the gym or participate in a hardcore activity. In addition, you will be maintaining your muscle better and growing new muscle easier. This will, of course, impact your performance for the better. Overall, from the start, you will start to notice improvement and with continued use, it will only become better and better.


As previously mentioned, this product will help you with hydration. Not only will you more than likely be mixing it with water, it contains powdered Coconut water which is a great source of electrolytes. Electrolytes help our cells use water efficiently and help promote adequate hydration throughout our entire bodies. It is crucial that we maintain the proper level of hydration. It helps your body feel better and helps decrease muscle soreness also. Between the Coconut water and the water, you will be mixing this with you are getting a good boost in hydration. When you sweat a lot you need to replace electrolytes, it is a key to proper hydration, and using this product will make that easier than ever before.

Vitamins & Minerals

This product does not have any added vitamins but it does have a few minerals. You will be getting some extra Calcium, Potassium, Sodium, and Chloride. These minerals are also electrolytes and will aid you in your hydration levels. Using a supplement like this one that carries too many vitamin and mineral additives can actually become dangerous. Especially, if you are already taking a multi-vitamin or other supplement that contains a variety of vitamins and minerals. Some of these can build up in our bodies to toxic levels and cause a plethora of health problems, such as damage to your liver. The fact that this one only has a few and they are all there to help your hydration and muscles is an asset.


Caffeine is used in so many products today that it can seem impossible to get away from it. For some people that is fine and they like the energy that it gives them. Others, however, try to avoid it completely because they have adverse reactions like anxiety and crashing effects when they use products that contain caffeine. This product does not contain any caffeine. Those that want that burst of energy can easily stack this product with your pre-workout, energy drink, or caffeine pill. A lack of caffeine is not a bad thing especially when you consider the fact that you can get an energy boost from other sources while using this product and not have to worry about taking way too much and feeling the devastating effects of that.


This brand does not use filler ingredients in any of their products. Part of the reason they do what they do is because of these appalling ingredients that inferior brands add to their products to make them look better so they can charge you outrageous prices. We are seeing less and less fillers being used and this is partially because great brands have steered away from using proprietary blends. Old School Labs does not ever include proprietary blends and the clarity of their label makes it simple to see and know that they are not hiding filler ingredients in your supplement. Trusting this brand is to know that you are getting exactly what you pay for and not a product filled with garbage ingredients that cost a ton of money.


A serving of this product is one scoop or just over seven grams. Seven grams is quite a bit less powder than other brands want you to use for the same effect. You will be getting thirty servings per container and unfortunately, there is no container size option. For those of you that like to stock up on your supplements for a few months that will be a bit more difficult when buying this product and you won't see the price reduction, you are used to for buying in bulk. With that being said, this product works really well and you will get a month's worth of daily doses. This is decent compared to other brands that offer as few as fifteen servings per container.

Side Effects

There have not been any major reports of this product causing adverse side effects. Now, it is important to note that all supplements affect people differently and just because we aren't seeing any reports does not mean you won't experience any. There are a few things you should watch out for whenever you are using a Branched Chain Amino Acid supplement. You may experience bloating, nausea, or impairment to your motor skills. These are usually minor but if experienced you may want to talk with your doctor about continuing with it. Additionally, you should discuss a product like this with your doctor if you are pregnant, taking prescriptions, or suffering from any major medical condition as it may not be safe for you to take it at all.


Some of the minor advantages of this product are the facts that it tastes good and is easily stackable with a variety of other supplements without worry of too many vitamins building up in your body. More importantly, this product is going to give your muscles the Branched Chain Amino Acids they need to perform exceptionally well. You won't be feeling as sore if you feel sore at all, even after the longest training sessions imaginable. There are no filler ingredients or proprietary blends so you know you are getting a product full of natural, healthy things that will aid you on your path to excellent health and fitness.


Some would say that the lack of flavor variety is a disadvantage with this product but because the flavor that is available is quite delicious we don't really feel the same. There is also the fact that there is no variety in container size so stocking up isn't going to save you any money or time. This we can understand as a slight disadvantage but even it seems pretty easy to look past. Trying to find other things about this product that are true disadvantages is difficult because this is a solid BCAA option. You will be getting just what your muscles need to function at top form. This minimal list of disadvantages is actually something we should have listed in our advantages section. Using this product will give results not disappointment.


This product is quite a bit pricier than others that are very similar. Part of the reason that this supplement is a bit more expensive is because of the superior ingredients they use in it. Looking at value does not only mean taking price into consideration. Yes, you can buy a product that is less expensive but is it going to honestly work as well? This product works exceptionally well and also tastes good. When you start to look at all of the advantages and the extreme lack of disadvantages it makes the price not seem so bad. Additionally, when you start to see the real results this product helps you achieve you see that value simply skyrocket.
