The level of support is entirely up to you.

Here is the good: The grape flavor tasted great.

Flavor Name: Concord GrapeSize Name: 30 Servings Verified Purchase
I tried this product for 2 months now, and although I am extremely satisfied with the taste and amount of ingredients it has per serving, I am giving it 4 stars because it lacks the power I was looking for in a pre-workout drink.

- Taste -

Delicious! I will state though that the grape flavor is not my favorite, but the fruit fusion is by far extremely delicious when I drink it with ice water.

- Value -

Not bad, considering you are paying less than $1 per serving (beats getting a nasty sugar loaded energy drink)

- Benefits -

Depending on what you're into, this might or might not be the product for you. When I was training for a half marathon, this worked wonders for me, it provided me with the right amount of energy to prevent fatigue and did not dehydrate me at all. I would drink this 20 minutes before my workout and off I went. My wife really enjoyed the taste as well, and she like the fact that it did not give her any jitters or made her all shaky as other products I tried before. The supplements you get with this product are pretty good for recovery as well, since I was recovering rather well from long runs.

Although I never took this product too late in the afternoon, I never had any issues trying to sleep at night. I have come across some products that kept me up all night and it was more like a inconvenient side effect that superseded the benefits of the supplement.

- Cons -

I will be honest and say that although I did enjoy taking this supplement, the only bad thing I can say it that it does not carry the overall punch I was looking for in a pre-workout drink when I would do power lifting.

Flavor Name: Concord GrapeSize Name: 30 Servings Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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 having a diluted taste.

I think this is definitely the way to go, versus a sugary Gatorade and the likes.

BEST OF ALL, for Amazon's current price, you'd have to buy 30 Gatorades for cheaper than 66cents a bottle to match the value that this provides (and with no sugar). Each container is good for 30 servings.

Flavor Name: Blue RaspberrySize Name: 30 Servings Verified Purchase
This is really the only supplement I use anymore. I take it anytime I need energy, without crashing. It works great for work, play and especially before workouts. Most pre workouts seem to make me jittery and this just gives me the energy I need without all the jitters and lack of focus. I have recommended this to many of my friends and co workers.

Flavor Name: Fruit FusionSize Name: 30 Servings Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I used to use a lot of supplements, but have, for the last few years, concentrated on getting most of my nutrition and vitamins from natural organic whole foods and from herbal teas and tinctures. They seem more absorbable this way. But I have found that I still use free form amino acid powders, like glutamine, GABA, and arginine. They are very absorbable also and when bought as a bulk powder seem to be a bargain for what you get. I was happy to find an amino acid powder up on the Amazon review list and was eager to try it, to see if I could feel anything from using it.

What I found is a few things: One is that this powder mixes well with water. It does not clump. Many powders are fussier to work with, do clump, and often need a blender to really mix with water or fruit. Two is that it has a nice tropical fruit flavor, a kind of like old fashioned Hawaiian punch. Three is that it has a measuring spoon for the right dose. This is very convenient (and also I like to keep them for measuring other things later on). Four is that I could feel some immediate "muscle recovery," some feeling of energy and strength very soon (10 minutes tops) afterwards.

There are a few reservations I have about this product, too: It says "natural and artificial flavors". This kind of blanket statement can hide a lot of not so good things behind it, even MSG. While I do not think this product has MSG, I cannot know for sure. It also has yellow dye #566. This is new to me and I do not know how to evaluate it. I hope it is okay. It also has "sucralose" as a noncaloric sweetener. While this is better than Nutrasweet (which to me is an excito-toxin), I would prefer to not use products sweetened this way.
