Love it!
I drink Amino during every workout. Sometimes even when I'm not working out, but just really thirsty! It's very refreshing. I've had the pineapple, green apple and watermelon flavors. All good flavors, but pineapple is my favorite!

A shopper on Oct 14, 2012

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.
