Good energy, cotton candy is tasty
on October 31, 2015
Based on others reviews I decided to try this supplement. I got the cotton candy flavor since others were saying the other flavors weren't so hot tasting. I haven't tried any other powder amino acid supplements before this one but I so I cannot really compare flavors or energy levels from this, however I can say that I was pleasantly surprised as to how this tasted and how it works. This smells just like cotton candy. Taste is a mix of cotton candy and almost a fruit punch. Very yummy. Slight aftertaste for about a second after swallowing and then it goes away. Haven't had any complaints from the hubby about bad breath like people are saying about the other flavors but maybe he's just trying to be nice.
I noticed a significant increase in energy and endurance while taking this. I run over 3 miles at least a couple times a week and wanted something for endurance as I run fasted in the morning and tend to fizzle out a little over halfway through it. I've been adding it to my water container that I carry with me running. I end up finishing it about halfway through my run and it helps me stay with it and keeps me from feeling like I'm going to keel over. I end up with extra energy to push myself further. And I haven't had any stomach or intestinal issues taking it on an empty stomach either.
I've been running for several years on and off and have only used gu packets for energy before I start. They tend to not do anything for me except make me want to gag on the texture of them. Sugary gel is gross on an empty stomach. I will be setting them aside and using this supplement instead from now on.
