The product itself was good. The flavor wasn’t my favorite ever, but it got the job done. However, this is the most powdery stuff I’ve ever touched. Any time I tried to get a scoop, I could guarantee I would dump some all over the floor. Now, this can usually be attributed to user error, but it happened every single time.like powdered sugar.

I would say this Cranberry Lemonade is my favorite out of all the flavors, I have tried different flavors but none compare to Cranberry Lemonade. I have been using this product for over a year and it definitely helps me to recover faster after an intense lengthy workout.

I have tried a few different BCAA products and like this one the best. It does not have any caffeine in it so I don't get jacked up from too much as I drink coffee prior to going to the gym. I use it during and after workouts and found it does help me get an extra set in. Recovery is better using this. Leg day is no longer feared because I recover by the next morning.

Does the job of delivering a good amount of BCAAs during my workout. But that's about it. I don't feel that shortened recovery and the taste is very bland, atleast for Strawberry Kiwi. It'll be a functional purchase if its ever on sale in the future

Excellent as a healthier alternative to soda. Makes it easier to drink more water and stay hydrated, since it tastes better than just plain water. The cranberry lemonade is really good. I add a splash of lemon juice to my shaker bottle and the extra tangy-ness makes it taste just like a bottle of lemonade- but without all the added sugar. The strawberry kiwi flavour is also very good.
