Product Overview

Proper supplementation before and during workouts can significantly improve performance.* That's where Core ABC comes in. Core ABC is ideal whether bulking up or slimming down. It was specifically designed to promote performance by supporting muscle building, reducing catabolism (muscle loss), supporting endurance; and assisting recovery.*

Core ABC uses an effective, established ratio (2:1:1) of branch-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine), to promote recovery and build muscle.* Glutamine is included to help keep the body in a muscle-building state during training, while beta-alanine and citrulline malate are included in liberal amounts to promote endurance.* Beta-alanine reduces lactic acid buildup and increases skeletal muscle carnosine levels, while citrulline malate reduces lactic acid buildup and ammonia concentration, at the same time promoting nitric oxide (NO) and ATP production.*

Core ABC should be taken before and during training, but can also be taken at other times throughout the day to maximize its effectiveness.

A - 10 grams of branch-chain Amino Acids Leucine (5 grams), Isoleucine (2.5 grams), and Valine (2.5 grams) to support recovery and build muscle by helping promote protein synthesis.* The amino acid Glutamine is also included to help maintain a positive nitrogen balance during intense training.*

B - 2.5 grams of Beta-Alanine, which has been surmised to increase skeletal muscle carnosine levels that delay the onset of fatigue and enhance endurance by reducing lactic acid buildup and increasing aerobic efficiency.*

C - 2.5 grams of Citrulline Malate to reduce lactic acid and ammonia concentrations while promoting nitric oxide (NO) and ATP production.*

Whether bulking up or slimming down, the most can be gotten out of workouts when performing at optimal efficiency, and the ingredients in Core ABC are ideal for optimizing exercise performance and aiding recovery.*

I didn't like it at first. Maybe it was because I added too much to not enough water. Either way, the second time around, I was sold. Training at the gym, Muay Thai, and in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu means get any sort of advantage possible (clean and legal). This stuff is legit. I wasn't sore the next day, and I feel that ABC attributed to it. It mixes cloudy, but stays in suspension clear. It tastes great too (like I said from earlier, I'm sold after the second time), and is EASILY worth the money.

As an older man (66) I have been working out consistently for 27 months.I have significant gains in strength, endurance and I even look a little better LOL. I work out 6 days a week and I was plagued with constant muscle soreness. One of the pro power lifters recommended this product. What a difference. I drink one 32 oz bottle with two level scoops and it has taken my soreness level from a 9 to a two. I will never work out without this product by my side kudos to Core Nutritional's great product

Great Dosing of BCAAs and Beta Alanine. at 2 scoops its a little pricey, but depending on what Pre-Workout you use, you will mostly be using only 1 scoop which then makes ABC the best price per serve.

I don't know if I got a bad batch or what but this stuff was horrible. The first time I opened it I thought I had something rotting in my garbage. Then I realized the smell was coming from this bcaa. It smelled like spoiled milk or something. I tried drinking this stuff but after halfway through I just threw it in the garbage. Money wasted

In my personal opinion Best BCAA product available on the market currently. Great for sipping during the day and intra workout. Only thing I personally would like is Agmatine over Citrulline but that's besides the point. All flavors I have tried (6) are great, my least favorite being lemonade only because I expected a Crystal Light taste, but it was still good and easy to drink. Cosmo and Gummy Snakes are amazing and by far the best. Cherry and Pineapple Strawberry and close behind, sweet but not sickening, refreshing to drink. Appletini is my current choice and it reminds me of a candy apple, not too sweet but just enough. All flavors are great across the board from what I've heard on flavors I haven't tried. Once I found ABC 3 years ago I've had a hard time shying away from it. While some may say 54.99 is expensive you need to look at what youre paying for. Great dosages and value for money. Excellent product and I have been a Core fan for quite some time.

Never seen any results from a BCAA supplement until now. Probably has to do with the impressive dosage of BCAAs with the addition of Beta-Alanine and Citrulline Malate. I take a mild pre-workout because I'm not a fan of these high stim products. This is the first perfect way to boost your workout and increase recovery. You can definitely notice an increase in endurance and pumps. The Australian Gummy Snakes flavor is so addicting and its best in a full shaker which will help you drink more water. No coloring and crappy fillers so you wont upset your stomach. It's also great value for money. Honestly don't waste your time with other BCAAs, they're as good as flavored water. If you have the extra money I would recommend this product, if not then you don't really need a BCAA supplement. Last thing I would say is you should weigh your scoops as the tub suggests two heaping scoops to get the full 20g serving, if you do that you would end up with too much powder and go through your tub much quicker.

ABC Core has an excellent profile. It backs in huge doses of 10 grams of BCAAs, 2.5 grams of beta-alanine, 2.5 grams of citrulline malate, and 2.5 grams glutamine. This is a premier intra-workout formula. The dosing is impressive, and the pricing is competitive. In terms of effects, ABC improved my recovery time and endurance during workouts. The effect was small though noticeable. ABC also noticeable improved and extended muscle pumps. The beta-alanine and citrulline malate at decent doses set the effects of ABC apart from other intra-workout products. Really enjoyed the white mango flavor. In the amount of water I put it in (14+ oz), it is a pretty tame flavor. It is decently refreshing, but definitely more so when cold. It is a flavor that grows on you more and more with continued use too. The powder mixes well but requires shaking. All around 10 out of 10!

Taste-10/10 You guys nailed the mango flavor. Nice and sweet, not tart. No nasty after-taste. Mixability-10/10 No issues here at all. Mixed great in just a simple shaker. A lot of aminos have problems mixing easily without grit and chunks. Not this one. Ingredient Panel-10/10 This is probably one of my favorite aspects of this supplement. I've never seen an amino supp with this amount of aminos, beta alanine, and citrulline. It's the perfect intra workout supplement. I'm a huge fan of all 3 of these ingredients. Price-8/10 I will admit, I'm a cheap guy. This is 50 servings for $54. Now a serving is 2 scoops, so there are 100 scoops in this thing, and that's a lot of product. I just have a hard time paying more than $1 per serving of an amino supp. At the same time, there is a high dose of everything in here, which is probably why. I'm a little torn with how I feel on the price, but it's still decent. Overall- 9.5/10 The only place I can "knock" this supplement is the price. The product is great, great flavor, great ingredient panel, great mixability. I'll definitely have to try out some more flavors.

Hands down one of the best intra-workout products I have ever used. Very light on the stomach, gives great pumps & energy, without any crashes. No weird after taste either! Good value for money as well. I rarely use the 2 scoops, which makes it last for even more workouts.

Best BCAA and Intra Workout VALUE WISE on the market. I really really think this product is as good as advertised though as an intra workout. I find that if I mix 2 or 3 scoops in just under a gallon of water, I'm able to workout for literally 2-3 hours. I sh%t you not. I'm even surprised myself with how long I'm able to work out for. Especially because it goes so quickly, I don't even notice how long it's been until I look at a clock. Plus, I get tunnel vision almost and have really quality reps and sets throughout the entirety of the session. As for what I initially said in this review though. If we're looking purely at a 5 Gram BCAA supplement, I can't think of any where you can find one at just around 50 cents a serving. Coupled with the Beta-Alanine and Citrilline Malate you get with that same 50 cent serv, this is one hell of a deal. Sure the upfront cost is very high, but you get well over a months supply. This is probably my new go to for all day/intraworkout supplement for the foreseeable future. 10/10 to Doug Miller for this outstanding product. 2 thumbs way up

Love this stuff and I just started using it not even a week ago. Also live the fact there are no dye's in there product. Definitely a plus on that. Don't see how people can complain the flavors are too sweet. Just add a little more water and it's like drinking crystal light. Highly recommend.
