In addition to producing the world’s best-selling whey protein, ON’s Gold Standard 100% Casein™ introduced slow-digesting nighttime protein to the weight training world and ESSENTIAL AMIN.O.

Great product, I can see/feel a difference with this, tasted weird at first (Strawberry Kiwi) but now I am looking forward to it.

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.

I got this BCAA on promotion with Whey Optimum Protein which was a good offer for me. When I opened the Jar the powder was low below like half jar. why they make a big jar and the powder just in Half? I usually buy the BCAA pills from optimum. It has helped me a lot during my intense workout. I take it before and after workout.
