Great combination!
I use this product for long bike rides or other longer/more intense workouts. I mix it with water so that in total, I'm getting the hydration, BCAA, and electrolytes I need to perform at my best. This product mixes really well with water and this flavor taste great. I have found the amount and ratio of ingredients to work really well. It could be overkill for lower intensity workouts depending on how much your body utilizes, but for longer and more intense workouts, this product is great. If you need a little extra "kick in your step", get the one with caffeine.
