Side effects
Okay. So. I tried two flavors, the strawberry lime and the watermelon. I ended up returning the strawberry lime because it had a weird aftertaste to me and got the watermelon which is a million times better taste wise. I have to admit that I decided to try this to help me kick my energy drink habit and get my caffeine boost from a more natural source since it doesn’t have all the extra taurine and other stuff that energy drinks do and to help recover after my workouts. It felt like a win-win situation. The first week or so was great, I was mixing two scoops in about 15 oz of water to cut down the sweetness a little bit, and I felt good and like I have enough energy to give me that last push through the work day. Then about three weeks in I started having some weird side effects. I did some research and found that amino supplements can cause bloating, gas, and gastrointestinal distress. I am the poster child for those side effects. All of them. It’s awful. So I cut back to my usual two scoops every other day and it’s not as bad, but I’m still thinking I’ll have to cut this from my regimen.

So three stars for good taste and bc it’s effective, but it also tears up my stomach.

Overrated
Figured since it was rated so highly everywhere I had to be missing something. Decided to try it and I got nothing out it, minimal energy and definitely no recovery. Looking at the ingredient list there's little to nothing really in this product. A 5g total blend of various aminos in amounts that will do little to nothing for you. This product is okay for a little boost but at that point you're better off drinking coffee.

Really helps with energy! I have chronic fatigue and other issues and always feel exhausted. I started having this in the morning instead of coffee and another after lunch and I feel much better! Even have energy to walk the dog longer and hop on the elliptical! Really happy a coworker recommended this to me.

got the blue lemonade flavor, been using it for about 2 months now. Using it more as a preworkout but even so the next day I personally have not been getting any soreness even after an intense workout.
first couple of times taking it, felt tingly all over the the body including the face but as I kept taking it every day became immune, so it is only temporary.

Amino Energy Grape
I have been using the Concord Grape flavor for over a year. I absolutely love it! It's a must have to my daily routine every day!
I love that it doesn't make you feel jittery.
