Supplement Facts

FOR AN AMINO ACID BOOST: Consume one or more servings first thing in the morning and/or between meals. FOR PRE-WORKOUT ENERGY: Take 1-3 servings 20-30 minutes before training. FOR POST-WORKOUT RECOVERY: Take 1-2 servings immediately after training.

TIPS: ESSENTIAL AMINO ENERGY contains 50 mg of caffeine per scoop, so do not consume after 5:00 PM if you have difficulty sleeping. Caffeine sensitive individuals should assess their tolerance for caffeine with a 1-scoop serving before mixing up multiple scoops. ESSENTIAL AMINO ENERGY also contains beta-Alanine and may cause a temporary tingling sensation on your skin. This is normal. With continued use, the intensity of the sensation will decrease or disappear.

Mix two scoops of Essential Amino Energy in 10-12 oz. of cold water.

Health Notes

Bitter Orange

Bitter Orange
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel
Bitter orange has traditionally been used as a digestive aid.(more)
Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia.(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange contains synephrine, which might promote weight loss. (more)
Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel

Bitter herbs are thought to stimulate digestive function by increasing saliva production and promoting both stomach acid and digestive enzyme production.1 As a result, they are particularly used when there is low stomach acid but not in heartburn (where too much stomach acid could initially exacerbate the situation). These herbs literally taste bitter. Some examples of bitter herbs include greater celandine, wormwood, gentian,dandelion, blessed thistle, yarrow, devil's claw, bitter orange, bitter melon, juniper, andrographis, prickly ash, and centaury.2. Bitters are generally taken either by mixing 1-3 ml tincture into water and sipping slowly 10-30 minutes before eating, or by making tea, which is also sipped slowly before eating.

Very little published research is available on the traditional uses of bitter orange as a digestive aid and sedative. The German Commission E has approved the use of bitter orange for loss of appetite and dyspeptic ailments.3 One test tube study showed bitter orange to potently inhibit rotavirus (a cause of diarrhea in infants and young children).4 Bitter orange, in an herbal combination formula, reportedly normalized stool function and completely eased intestinal pain in 24 people with non-specific colitis and, again in an herbal combination formula, normalized stool function in another 32 people with constipation.5, 6

Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia. There is no clinical trial data to support its efficacy in this regard. The usual amount of tincture used is 2 to 3 ml at bedtime.1, 2

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructionsAlthough historically used to stimulate appetite, bitter orange is frequently found in modern weight-loss formulas because synephrine is similar to the compound ephedrine, which is known to promote weight loss. In one study of 23 overweight adults, participants taking a daily intake of bitter orange (975 mg) combined with caffeine (525 mg) and St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum, 900 mg) for six weeks lost significantly more body weight and fat than the control group.1 No adverse effects on heart rate or blood pressure were found. Bitter orange standardized to contain 4 to 6% synephrine had an anti-obesity effect in rats. However, the amount used to achieve this effect was accompanied by cardiovascular toxicity and mortality.2

        Great everyday product when recovering AFTER you have taken post workout protein, or when you just want something to drink and don't want coffee or soda (just not in the evenings). Orange taste is just like Tang, only not as intense / very smooth flavor. Can feel a difference in soreness between when I do and when I don't take this product.

          I drink this first thing in the morning, and it gives me energy and helps me focus all day, up to 8 hours. I'm ditching my morning coffee routine, which makes me crash after only 4 hours. This is a great product!

              I bought this stuff wondering if it would make a difference or not. I felt the effects the first time. It did make me wired and every now and then it will have that effect on me. Otherwise it gives me that little boost to make it through my intense workouts. I also have used it to give me a little pick me up before work, and it was amazing. I did notice that sometimes I have to take more than the recommended 2 scoops to feel an effect. Introduced it to a friend and she loves it!
              Recommend Orange & Grape (grape is a little stong but with more water, it tastes great)
