Love this!!
Love the Blue raspberry flavor-it tastes like blue fun dip! My husband and I have tried it during different times in the day—morning wake-up, preworkout, post workout. No jitters, great taste, not chalky. We absolutely love it! Looking forward to trying different flavors!

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.

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.
