I like it!
Lemon lime and orange flavors are my favorite. Make work outs a little less tiring. I push extra hard. I try to have it available for post work outs too. A little added recovery that is tasty.

Tasty and Effective
I go to the gym at 5am every day, and this product made it so much easier. I need the amino acids, but the preworkout energy kick it gives me at 4:30 in the morning is necessary. It doesn't make me feel as shaky as other preworkouts and that is appreciated. I have only tried the Orange Cooler, but I love it!

Love it!
I love amino energy! I drink it daily and it gives me just the boost I need. All of the flavors are good. I do wish the peach tea was more “peachy” though.

Great product, no jitter side effects!
Great product, does not have a jitter effect as other products we have tried! I like the drink as a Morning, lunch and Dinner drink, I am not a coffee drinker and I have used this to replace all soda. We basically follow the directions on the container usually using 2 scoops per serving well below the maximum of 10. Great product Concord grape is our favorite.

This stuff puts coffee to shame, it gives you tons of energy to workout or even put up a block wall 300 ft long x 7 ft tall all by myself in one day, it was insane but helpers would have slowed me down and got in the way. I once mixed it way too strong so I added some Captain Morgan to it and it was the perfect mix drink and it taste great !
Sort of like a Jager Bomb with a kick of blueberry lemonade amino acid , hahahaa... they should sell these at nightclubs keep the people dancing all night long !! Great stuff no matter what you mix it with, life's short, enjoy it while you can. From Woody

Is this safe for a 15 year old?
A shopper on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The warning label clearly states "Not for use by those under the age of 18" I would sincerely consider speaking with a doctor or you nutritionist before using it.
Will this keep me up at night. i want to take this as a recovery agent but i expect to go to bed at least an hour or two after the fact. Will this make it hard for me to sleep, if so is there a better supplement for me?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Any energy drink taken before bedtime can potentially effect your sleep. If you are taking this two hours before bedtime and before your workout, most of it should be processed by the time you go to bed.

Is this good to take if your a diabetic..??
T S on Mar 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would say NO. Some amino acids help with insulin sensitivity but caffeine and type 2 I’m not so sure about. This would be a question for the customers doctor. I would recommend giving the customer a sample of product a printout of the nutritional facts so they can be presented to one doc
please tell me what is the maximum period of time till we can use this product??
i brought one today which was manufactured on jan 2011 and expiration time is written on it.
Kindly tell me till when i could use this product??
A shopper on Oct 14, 2012
BEST ANSWER: You generally want to use any supplement by the expiration date. If you have an expired product, it will not be harmful, but will be less potent that a "fresh" one. If the expiration date has not passed, the product is fine to use and should just as potent now as it was when it was packaged.

BEST ANSWER: There are 5 grams in the mild, 10 grams in the moderate and 15 grams in the intense.
I see that the amino chews don't have as much aminos in the blend as the powder drink why does it have less and which one is more beneficial?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Both products provide Optimum Nutrition's proprietary Amino Energy Blend. The chews have 2.1 grams per serving, while the powder has 5 grams per serving. I suggest choosing the one that fits your lifestyle the best, remembering that the powder must me mixed with water, while the chewables are quick and easy for use on the go.
How will prodcut affect my kidney and high blood pressure ?
A shopper on May 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: This product should not adversely affect your kidneys. However, it will raise your blood pressure. This is due to the fact that it contains both tyrosine and phenylalanine, which are two amino acids that can potentially cause a dangerous increase in blood pressure. These particular amino acids are also associated with rapid heart beat, fatigue and dizziness.
Amino energy was recommended to a friend of mine by a personal trainer. What is the benefit of this product?
