Fantastic Product! - 08/16/2014 Overall Rating:5 out of 5 Reviewer:Bilal from Nassar Product:Cellucor Alpha Amino
Start off with the taste! Taste 8/10 Great flavor, although I do not love grape like I do other flavors 9/10 -Mixability, I used 8 oz, water was opaque with small floaters. The powder dissolved instantly and rather quickly with no minimal effort. No huge foamy top like a lot of BCAA formulas. Good, though there was foam at the top and residue in the cup after drinking (it didn't completely mix with the 250cc's of water I used) 8/10 -Thoughts on the Formula and Ingredients 5 grams 2:1:1 BCAAs per scoop. Includes Concentrated 3X Leucine TM, a combination of Micronized L-Leucine, Leucine Nitrate and Leucine Peptides. 5 grams Aminos and Hydration Compounds per scoop. Glutamine, Citrulline additional premium Aminos. Hydrate Formula utilizes Coconut Water and Chia seeds. Stevia/natural options. Sugar and Stimulant FREE. -Recovery during your workout: During the workout, I noticed a slight improvement in recovery and endurance. I noticed I wanted to drink more during this time, but did not feel bloated like I just drank a gallon of water in 1 sitting. Overall I would say I was more hydrated. I did not get any stomach discomfort or nausea. -I did notice a small reduction in DOMS/soreness. The soreness was slightly decreased the workout day. -As far as recovery between sets or exercises I did not notice any difference in recovery between sets or exercises. It is not to say that it didn't happen. If it did it was very slight and unnoticeable. -I didn't notice any difference in focus or pumps. Also I'd definitely use it for my intra. The BCAAs taste was still noticeable with the foamy top which is likely from the leucine..

Originally, I was aiming to get an amino acid supplement that i was able to use for a pre and intra workout drink that did not contain any caffeine. This one did just that! I usually drink this before my workout with some cretaine, i dont like drinking things while i workout, its a hassle so i just get this done before hand.
I find that this keeps my muscles properly fueled, hydrated and ready for an extreme workout, it doesnt have any jitters of the normal pre workout supplements. This definitely helps me with recovery, i workout 5 days a week so recovery is very very essential to my program and needs. So its important that i am not sore for my following workout, the next day cause this stuff really takes down the soreness tremendously. Of course i get sore still, that would be dumb to say if i didnt, but it def helps, i used to be really sore after dealifts and squats but this aminos minimize soreness and recovery time. I would recommend this stuff to just about any type of lifter, crossfitter or someone who just wants genral health benefits. Finally, I went with and decided to go with the watermelon flavor based on reviews on the internet, and while it is pretty tasty (doesn't taste like medicine or anything gross) it is VERY SWEET and very good. I drink a scoop of the aminos with a micro sized scoop of creatine (5g) and at LEAST 10-12 oz. of water. Once you get the ratio you like down it tastes pretty good. Give it a shot
