Highly Recommend
Highly recommend this product. It works as advertised for recommended uses: pre-workout boost and post-workout recovery. I also use it in the afternoon to avoid the 2:30 feeling. Best part is there's no crash.

What is the difference between amino energy supplement like this versus a BCAA? Can you take both?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No need to take both. BCAA are just half (roughly) the aminos you need. This has both essential and branch chain aminos. This covers it which is why they just put general amino on the title and not bcaa which is just a portion of aminos.

How will prodcut affect my kidney and high blood pressure ?
A shopper on May 6, 2012
