I first posted about the new Allmax Nutrition Amino Cuts last month in this blog post. Since this I have been waiting for the time I get to test this new supplement out. And earlier this week I was given a bottle of the Pina Colada Amino Cuts, also called A:CUTS. Seems like many of the their products are going this way. Look at Allmax C:VOL and Allmax H:VOL. But now they have come out with their new energy amino supplement and that's what I am reviewing.
What is Amino Cuts (A:CUTS)?
Allmax calls this product their Amino-Charged Energy Drink. Looking at the overall ingredients, looks like they are competing against Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy and winning with this product. Let's take a look at the highlights of this new product.
- 4.2 Grams of Amino Acids
- Only 5 Calories
- No Sugar
- Added Green Coffee Bean Extract
- Added CLA
- Naturally Sourced Caffeine (127mg per serving)
So how does Allmax want you to take A:CUTS? They are saying this is an energy drink to train with aminos to help maintain your muscle and help with diet support. You can use it anytime, pre-workout or anytime you need a boost of energy. For me, it was mid-day lol.
The also have a nice little chart on the bottle with dosage recommendations:
- Morning: 1-2 scoops. AM boost or morning cardio
- Mid-Day: 1 scoop. Mid day boost or pre-training
- Evening: 1-2 scoops. Pre-cardio or exercise class
So really, you can use this product anywhere and anytime. Not too much caffeine that it makes you jittery or keeps you up at night.
My Review of Amino Cuts
So what you have been waiting for, what did I think about Allmax Nutrition's Amino Cuts?Well there are probably two main points I should go over:
They are supposed to have a few flavors. I was given a bottle of the pina colada. And OMG is it good. With all their new products, their flavoring is on point. There is no way you won't enjoy drinking this. It's delicious.
I used to be all about 400mg+ of caffeine pre-workout, but over the past few months I have lowered my intake and now I am good with about 200-250mg pre-workout. This product has 125mg per scoop. So taking this mid-day, which is when I have been using it, it was perfect. I was back up and at em within 10min of drinking this. I never tried it pre-workout though, so not sure it would have the same bite as others on the market? If you are stimulant sensitive though, this product would be great for anything. I guess you can just take 2 scoops though and you are up to 250mg of caffeine. Never did that though. I just prefer to use it for a pick-me-up throughout the day. And even after drinking it and hours later, no jitters, no crash, no problems. Just good clean energy.
So who would I recommend this to? If you are currently taking an amino acid supplement during the day. Try replacing it with this. You will not only get the aminos, but a nice boost of energy. Also, if you are someone looking for a pick-me-up at the office or don't want to take in a lot of caffeine pre-workout, this is perfect. I think Allmax Nutrition has a hit with Amino Cuts. They have been doing great things with their brand and I am excited to see what's next!
