Consumer Review
Great taste, mixes easy, stays mixed which is rare!
If you’ve ever used powder drink mixes before from GNC and the like, they have a lot of things in common – they might taste okay, but they are very difficult to mix and when you do mix, there is usually a lot of settlement/sediment after it sits.

This amino-energy powder mix is the exception and the reason I give it 5 stars.

First, it actually tastes good, not mediocre, but good that I want to drink it all the time. (I have the concord grape flavor)

Next, some powder mixes truly require a blender, this is easily mixed in a sports bottle with mild shaking.

And lastly, I purposely let this sit for 30 minutes and it stays mixed! I used a clear bottle and there’s no sediment at the bottom; no sediment also means it is easy to clean, versus having caked-on wet goo like other powders.

It comes with a handy scoop that fits into a sports bottle well and whether I fill with 12, 16 or even 20 ounces of water, it still tastes good without…

Consumer Review
I use it to replace coffee, does not suppress hunger.
To start with I don’t think the name of this product should be diet boost instead should be energy boost… I used to drink a lot of coffee and I started having problems with heartburn so I switched to this pills, now it take two pills in the morning before breakfast and 2 pills after lunch about 2 o’clock that seems to keep me energize all day without keeping me up at night, keep in mind that I used to drink a lot of coffee so people that are not used caffeine should start with one pill in the morning and one pill a lunch and see how that works.

Optimum Nutrition CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is quickly becoming a “must have” for people who are looking to lose fat and gain muscle. CLA is a group of unique fatty acids naturally found in foods like eggs, dairy products, and red meat. However, to get the amounts of CLA needed to encourage favorable changes in body composition through foods, you’d need to consume far too much dietary fat. Optimum Nutrition’s CLA Softgels fight fat with fat. Each softgel provides 750 milligrams of the pure CLA fats that you’re looking for to help support your efforts with the fat that you’re trying to lose.

ANOTHER GREAT PRODUCT FROM ON
I use a few supplements all of wich are from ON, i use ON’s creatine, protein powder, and CLA’s. They make a great product thats clean and free from the trash everybody else puts in their supplements (you know like muscle milk and muscle-tech). As for the CLA supplement, Well it takes a good 3-5 months to work and you may or may not notice the results from this. If your dieting and exercising and losing a steady amount of weight already then i recommend you try this product for 3-4 months, if it works for you you will notice the small increase in fat loss (yes you must measure your fat not just weight). If you are kind of just starting out DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY ON THIS JUST YET, first get in to your new diet ( i dont mean go on a diet i mean change the way you eat) and get into your exercise routine. after lets say the first 60 days you should be losing a steady amount of weight each week once your in that stage THEN INVEST IN THIS PRODUCT. At first you will be losing weight and fat…

Get you jacked up
These pills are alright. When you take one, you get pretty jacked up. But after a week of taking them, I started to have to take 2 to get the same effect. Over time, you build tolerance to it. That’s the only con.

Now I just take one in the morning on days I feel lazy. It gives me a little pop, I get productive and go to the gym. I use it very sparingly so I don’t get too used to it.

After Max employs a 1:1 ratio of protein to carbs, along with creatine, glutamine peptides, and digestive enzymes to create a comprehensive post-workout recovery formula. No more “guess-timating” on whether you’re getting the nutrients your body needs. Just mix up a serving of After Max and you can rest assured your post-workout needs are satisfied.

Consumer Review
Best Shake On The Market
A friend of mine recommended this to me a couple of years ago, and i’ve been using it ever since. It’s not gritty and it doesn’t have that “cardboard glue” taste i’ve found in other nutrition shakes. With the Aminogen, Creatine and L-Glutamine already added, i was able to stop buying other supplements which saved quite a bit of money. This product is enjoyable to drink and i’ve seen great gains in my performance and strength since i’ve started using it. I highly recommend this product.

I have found that the best mix is blending 3 scoups of powder, 12oz of water and 3 ice cubes together, it gives it more of a “shake” feel and body.

What you eat, when you eat it, and how much you eat has a dramatic effect on your performance. But, not all nutrient combinations work equally well. Our 2:1:1 Recovery is based on the latest science demonstrating that blending different types of carbs and proteins maximizes absorption and leads to better results than the use of larger amounts of any single type. Hydrolyzed whey, micellar casein, and egg albumen proteins provide immediate and sustained amino acid delivery for repair and rebuilding while the precise ratio of simple sugars and rapidly-digesting carbs in 2:1:1 Recovery helps refuel and replenish hard-working muscles. And with 5 grams of added BCAAs in the proven 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine to Isoleucine to Valine to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, there’s no question that 2:1:1 Recovery is an indispensable part of every serious athlete’s routine.

Consumer Review
Outstanding for post-workout
I got this for P90x to substitute for the ridiculously expensive P90x recovery drink. The P90x drink I think is a bit more stacked than this, but this drink is perfect for an intense workout recovery. It’s also extremely affordable on Amazon which is great. It’s effects on the body are phenomenal. Before taking this and using regular good quality whey, I felt soreness the next day and further after that. After taking this recovery drink immediately after workouts with my muscles still pumped up and like jelly, you feel great within a couple of hours. Muscles return to normal and soreness, if any, is much more mild going into the next day. You’re ready for the next workout no doubt.

I also add a multi-vitamin and creatine right after a good workout and it’s probably the best thing I can do for my tired worked up body. Do that and take it within an hour, then after showering, about 1-2 hours later you can have a real meal to help your body recover further…

Why This is the one of the best Protein Supplement in the Market, A critical analysis from a Bio technologist
As a fitness enthusiast and a Science guy, I am always curious to find the real value of a supplement. What works and what does not work. More importantly, I believe the analysis of a product should be based on strong scientific knowledge base, combined with good old fashion practical use of the product, and only then one should come down to the final conclusion.

This product review and analysis was conducted based on 3 parameters

A. Constituents: What comes in the box, the real value of the product
B. Assimilation: How does this product goes down in your system, how much of it will your body assimilate
C. Usability : Long term usability and and effects.

I believe this is one of the best supplements available in the market today. The Question is Why?

1. The Quality of protein. Since its manufactured by Glanbia (who owns Optimum nutrition), this product is coming straight from the manufacturer. This is a BIG factor, 90% of the…

Dietary Supplement. Each serving (one teaspoon) of Optimum Nutrition’s Creatine Powder supplies 5 grams (5000 mg) of Pure Creatine Monohydrate. The patented production method used to produce this Creatine yields a tasteless, odorless powder that mixes easily into water or juice and does not readily settle to the bottom. As a result, the gritty taste or texture you may have experienced with other Creatine powders is not associated with this product. Optimum Nutrition’s Creatine Powder is produced and packaged in our own state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in accordance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs).


Consumer Review
The best out there
This is hands down the best unflavored creatine monohydrate powder I’ve tried for the following reasons:

Dissolves easily: While no creatine powder will ever completely dissolve in water, this product comes pretty close to that.

No stomach upset: I’ve never experienced gas, bloating or discomfort while supplementing with this.

Awesome value: The recommended serving is 5 grams. This product provides a whopping 120 servings. For the price it can’t be beat.
