B(10) is a BCAA and L-Carnitine supplement from High Performance Nutrition (HPN). The supplement promises to be a natural, vegan-friendly source of amino acids. These are Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine (in a 2:1:1 ratio) and L-Carnitine an amino acid that is very useful for vegans who may be deficient due to the lack of meat and dairy in their diet.
The main ingredient list for B(10) is a short one, there are 5g of BCAAs that are derived from fermented vegetables. 2.5g of this is made up of Leucine, while there are 1.25g of Isoleucine, and 1.25g of Valine. The supplement also contains 1.2g of L-Carnitine.
|BCAAs||5g||Vegetarians will be pleased to see that the BCAAs here are from vegan friendly sources. The ratio is standard, and they will definitely benefit from the 2.5g of Leucine in particular.|
|L-Carnitine||1.2g||A vegetarian or vegan diet can be deficient in L-Carnitine, which makes the inclusion of 1.2g of it very effective. L-Carnitine can help to lower body fat, reduce fatigue, and reduce pain and swelling after exercise. The dosage is pretty standard, with doses between 500-2,000mg being commonly recommended.|
Bottom Line: If you are looking for a high-quality BCAA supplement that also contains the amino acid L-Carnitine then HPN B(10) is a great supplement. It is particularly effective for vegetarians or vegans who would have a low amount of Leucine and L-Carnitine in their systems due to the lack of animal products in their diets. The dosages for each ingredient are sufficient, and the product has an admirable approach to keeping things simple.
Taste & Mixability: As this is a brand new product it is impossible to say how good the flavor is going to be, however based on the good reputation HPN has for quality tasting products we can at least predict that it should be excellent. The flavor available is Green Apple Candy. If B(10) mixes as well as their P(3) Pre-Workout Drink, then you should be very happy.
Effectiveness: Based on the ingredients, and the dosage it is easy to see that this will supplement will help gym goers who require more energy in a workout, or want to make maximum muscle gains. Vegetarian and vegan lifters (who this product seems to be designed for) will probably get the most out of it.
