Great Source of Energy 16 Jan 2011
By JAC - Published on Amazon.com
Flavour Name: Concorde GrapeSize Name: 270g Verified Purchase
I tried this product for 2 months now, and although I am extremely satisfied with the taste and amount of ingredients it has per serving, I am giving it 4 stars because it lacks the power I was looking for in a pre-workout drink.

- Taste -

Delicious! I will state though that the grape flavor is not my favorite, but the fruit fusion is by far extremely delicious when I drink it with ice water.

- Value -

Not bad, considering you are paying less than $1 per serving (beats getting a nasty sugar loaded energy drink)

- Benefits -

Depending on what you're into, this might or might not be the product for you. When I was training for a half marathon, this worked wonders for me, it provided me with the right amount of energy to prevent fatigue and did not dehydrate me at all. I would drink this 20 minutes before my workout and off I went. My wife really enjoyed the taste as well, and she like the fact that it did not give her any jitters or made her all shaky as other products I tried before. The supplements you get with this product are pretty good for recovery as well, since I was recovering rather well from long runs.

Although I never took this product too late in the afternoon, I never had any issues trying to sleep at night. I have come across some products that kept me up all night and it was more like a inconvenient side effect that superseded the benefits of the supplement.

- Cons -

I will be honest and say that although I did enjoy taking this supplement, the only bad thing I can say it that it does not carry the overall punch I was looking for in a pre-workout drink when I would do power lifting. If you're looking for a pre-workout drink that will take you over the edge and make you have an insane workout, this is not the product for you.

I do recommend this product for those looking for a little extra for your workouts and don't need excessive amounts of energy, specially since this are all amino acids and they are quickly absorbed by your muscles during workout and they don't do any known harm to your body. If you need something for you yoga, pilates, zumba, cardio, biking, or any such classes, this will be the product for you. But if you're a bodybuilder and need something with a punch to get through that insane workout, this is not for you.

Great taste, mixes easy, stays mixed which is rare! 9 July 2011
By Dean! - Published on Amazon.com
Flavour Name: Concorde GrapeSize Name: 270g Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you've ever used powder drink mixes before from GNC and the like, they have a lot of things in common - they might taste okay, but they are very difficult to mix and when you do mix, there is usually a lot of settlement/sediment after it sits.

This amino-energy powder mix is the exception and the reason I give it 5 stars.

First, it actually tastes good, not mediocre, but good that I want to drink it all the time. (I have the concord grape flavor)

Next, some powder mixes truly require a blender, this is easily mixed in a sports bottle with mild shaking.

And lastly, I purposely let this sit for 30 minutes and it stays mixed! I used a clear bottle and there's no sediment at the bottom; no sediment also means it is easy to clean, versus having caked-on wet goo like other powders.

It comes with a handy scoop that fits into a sports bottle well and whether I fill with 12, 16 or even 20 ounces of water, it still tastes good without having a diluted taste.

I think this is definitely the way to go, versus a sugary Gatorade and the likes.

BEST OF ALL, for Amazon's current price, you'd have to buy 30 Gatorades for cheaper than 66cents a bottle to match the value that this provides (and with no sugar). Each container is good for 30 servings.

Great tasting. Highly recommend. 26 Aug 2013
By BB - Published on Amazon.com

As mentioned I think the taste is great for what it is and works exactly as described. I drink it as a pre-workout, after and throughout the day if I need a jump of non jitter energy.

A suggestion I wanted to pass along -> I drink mine with S.Pellegrino (Sparking Water) and mix it all together in a shaker. Pretty much makes it like it's grape soda and to me much more enjoyable to drink vs. tap cold water.

Felt Some Quick Energy Immediately 29 April 2011
By William Bagley - Published on Amazon.com
Flavour Name: Fruit PunchSize Name: 270 g Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I used to use a lot of supplements, but have, for the last few years, concentrated on getting most of my nutrition and vitamins from natural organic whole foods and from herbal teas and tinctures. They seem more absorbable this way. But I have found that I still use free form amino acid powders, like glutamine, GABA, and arginine. They are very absorbable also and when bought as a bulk powder seem to be a bargain for what you get. I was happy to find an amino acid powder up on the Amazon review list and was eager to try it, to see if I could feel anything from using it.

What I found is a few things: One is that this powder mixes well with water. It does not clump. Many powders are fussier to work with, do clump, and often need a blender to really mix with water or fruit. Two is that it has a nice tropical fruit flavor, a kind of like old fashioned Hawaiian punch. Three is that it has a measuring spoon for the right dose. This is very convenient (and also I like to keep them for measuring other things later on). Four is that I could feel some immediate "muscle recovery," some feeling of energy and strength very soon (10 minutes tops) afterwards.

There are a few reservations I have about this product, too: It says "natural and artificial flavors". This kind of blanket statement can hide a lot of not so good things behind it, even MSG. While I do not think this product has MSG, I cannot know for sure. It also has yellow dye #566. This is new to me and I do not know how to evaluate it. I hope it is okay. It also has "sucralose" as a noncaloric sweetener. While this is better than Nutrasweet (which to me is an excito-toxin), I would prefer to not use products sweetened this way. I wish that the company had chosen Stevia, crystalline Fructose (not to be confused with high fructose corn syrup), or even evaporated cane juice (which is sugar without the minerals stripped from it).

I also liked how the main ingredients are "micronized" for greater absorption. All the amino acids are done this way. Micronization, as far as I understand it, is a powdering method that is extra fine. The amino acids that are in this product: Taurine, Glutamine, Arginine, Leucine, Alanine (special "Carbosyn" kind), Citrulline, Isoleucine, Valine, Tyrosine, Histidine, Lysine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, and Methionine. It has caffeine from Green Tea and Green Coffee extracts, some citric acid, malic acid, Inulin, Beet Color, Tartaric Acid, Calcium Silicate, Silicon Dioxide (standard anti-caking agent and essentially very clean refined sand, the body may be able to get a little bit of useful silica from this), Cellulose, Carrageenan, Xanthan Gums, and Lecithin (two things our brain can use in this: Choline and Inositol). The Lecithin does come from soy, so those with soy allergies may need to consider this.

All in all, I like the product, but would have preferred that it have a purer organic standard for its supportive ingredients. I give it four stars rather than five stars because of this. I may add more to this review as I explore the product in the next two weeks. I was impressed that I could feel something soon after taking it.

Addendum: I have been taking the product for a while now. I still like the energy boost and the how the amino acids work. I do find that occasionally the caffeine dose is a little much for me, so I have been cutting down the amount taken at a time. I may also be having a very mild adverse reaction to the sweetener, but I cannot tell for sure.

Second addendum: I am verifying the adverse reaction to the sweetener used, Sucralose. The subjective feeling is like a gummy feeling inside. I noticed this more after a series of cleansing teas that I drink in the morning. I usually like what I eat or consume to enhance this clean feeling, rather than to obscure it. But this product is feeling like it obscures the clean feeling some. I do like the energy feeling that I get from this formula. It might just be me having a individual adverse reaction. But I will just report it here. It has been significant enough so that I am throwing the remainder of the product away. I remember experimenting a while ago with Sucralose and having a similar reaction. I then read up Sucralose and felt I had some my reservations confirmed. I do not want my experience to be a kind of proof that Sucralose is bad. It seems that its health and side effects status is less clear than some other sweeteners. I am just reporting my subjective experience with the product.

Favorite Supplement 13 Mar 2014
By Derek - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is really the only supplement I use anymore. I take it anytime I need energy, without crashing. It works great for work, play and especially before workouts. Most pre workouts seem to make me jittery and this just gives me the energy I need without all the jitters and lack of focus. I have recommended this to many of my friends and co workers.
