- blueberry lemonade
- morning boost
- grape flavor
Not sure if the formula has been changed since I last bought this item. Color is different, taste is different and the effect feels less intense.
Best Price Nutrition
Unless it's been many years since you've tried Lipodrene the formula is still the same. During seasonal changes the manufacture sometimes has trouble with the coating on the tablets varying a bit in consistency but it should be the same formula. If Lipodrene isn't intense enough for you, you may want to consider trying Lipodrene Hardcore or Lipodrene Xtreme. Innovative Labs Black Mamba is another great one that's a bit heavier on the stims.
Best price I’ve found. Quick delivery and the only place I can find blueberry lemonade! Thank you !
Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy
Loooove this. Recently decided to get my butt back into shape after my son turned 3. I LIVE for this stuff because apparently my son hates sleep. It gives me a morning boost for my workouts and an afternoon pick me up.
Loving the boost this gives!
Recently started using this brand of pre-workout. It tastes great and gives a nice boost without jitters or any side effects! Love all of the flavors too!
The taste is a little overwhelming...a little too much grape flavor. All in all a decent taste.
ON Amino Energy Fruit Fusion
Love this stuff!!! I found an affordable, more accessible, and better tasting alternative to Advocare Spark.
Great flavor of a good product
Really enjoy this flavor. Helpful little boosts of energy through the day.
Always efficient and quick
Me and the wife love it
This is our favorite energy drink. I don’t think we ever had one that tasted bad! Allows us to choose the dosage for say a morning pick me up or an afternoon pre workout boost. Amino energy is so versatile. Please optimum don’t ever change this stuff. We need nutrition companies changing up there pre workouts all the time. Just keep this formula the same. No side effects no jitters just the perfect supplement.
I found it!!
For years now I have been looking for a replacement for the high sugar and carb loaded energy drinks. I found it in "Essential Amino Energy." Thanks for such a great product that helps me achieve my health goals.
Good Coffee Replacement
My wife and I enjoy Amino Energy as a coffee replacement throughout the day. While not the greatest amino profile, it's better than drinking other sugary or high calorie drinks for your caffeine fix. My favorite is the watermelon.
Not jittery, no heartburn, inexpensive!
Not jittery, no heartburn, inexpensive! Honestly, I have tried just about everything on the market, always looked for something that will give me a bit of a push for my workouts and I use Amino Energy. I used to use all the other **** C4 NO Xplode NO Shotgun but you have to trust me this is freaking perfect, its cheap, its pretty good of a push since I am naturally alert as it is and unlike the other **** I have that was like 300MG of coffeee lol, im not a sales person but this thing really did it for me. Oh lets not forget I don't get heartburn!!!!!!!!!!! so YES 5 STARS to this product!
Loved Every Flavor
I don't think there is one flavor I haven't like of Amino Energy. I use it a few times a day because 1) I hate coffee and 2) Monster Energy drinks are freaking expensive. If you haven't had this stuff, though I can't believe anyone hasn't tried it, it's everywhere, it mixes well, gives you a nice boost and the taste is why I keep buying it. There is nothing else out there that tastes this good. NOTHING!!! Just try it, its cheap and effective.
The flavoring is what makes this stuff sell I think. It's good for a pick me up, but not as intense as some other pre-workout supplements i have taken. It's nice they have a lot of flavors, though I hate coffee, so not a fan of the coffee flavors, but all the rest has been good. I didn't give it a 5 starts because it's not that push you over the edge pre, it more of a clean energy bump that you can drink anytime.
Wife Loves It
This review is for my wife, since I buy it for her. She loves this stuff. The Watermelon is her flavor of choice. I have tried to get her on stronger ones like Mesomorph or Jacked Up, but she likes the way this makes her feel. She does a lot of Crossfit and this gets her through each workout with no big crash or anything afterwords. It's cheap enough and she goes through a container probably one a month or so...so not a big expense at all. I personally think it is ok, but I like the stronger stuff...but then again I weigh about 60lbs more than her too.
Tastes Great & Works
I am not a big stim guy, so this was perfect. Amino Energy tastes great in all the flavors I have tried. And it's not over stimulating. Don't crash and don't get the jitters. It's the perfect pre-workout for me. Not sure what else to say. It works, so it gets 5 stars.
A reliable Energy Blend!
So I have tried alot of energy/amino blends in the past couple, some disapppint, some meet expectations, whilst other exceed. It holds a middle ground for me. I've had Grape, Orange, and Fruit Punch thus far, and have found all three of those flavors mentioned delicious and refreshing. Orange being my favorite. One serving size of two scoops is more than adequate as far as flavoring, but I have found two servings (four scoops) required for the energy effect I am looking for. For me, two servings and you can feel the beta alanine and energy blend, which (again just in my case) lasts me about two and a half to three hours. That length of time is perfect for powering through an intense workout or just as a morning pick-me-up in place of coffee or carbonated energy drinks. Very minimal foaming which quickly settles allows for immediate consumption. One ice you have a thirst quenching and refreshing powerful energy drink at a fraction of the cost of other brands' prices. This not a quick-to-market shoddily formulated fad product put out swiftly to capitalize on emerging trends in order to swindle gullible and uninformed rubes out of their honestly begotten monies. Optimum Nutrition has been around for years and probably was one of If not the first energy/amino blends produced and released. I generally always keep a tub of it around in addition to other, more expensive energy/blends. If you haven't tried Amino Energy...then get on it!!! er
This is a great product. I use it in my pre workout shake and my intra shake. It helps me recover to. This amino energy has a lot of bcaa's to so if that is something that you are looking for then you pretty much hit it on the head with product. I have been using this product for a lil over a year now and i love it.
Awesome product for a multitude of uses. Just everyday energy or preworkout shake. It doesn't give overpowering energy so it doesn't make you all jittery like most preworkouts, which I like. The taste is awesome as well. The only thing I would change is more BCAAs.
Love for long workouts
I like to do a lot when I go to the gym, so my workouts usually last upwards of 1.5-2 hours depending on the day. I feel more ready to keep going ******* days that I use intraworkouts like Amino Energy. I get the orange flavor because I am an orange flavor anything fan, and this stuff tastes like orange kool aid! I also just enjoy drinking something with good flavor instead of my normal water. The price is pretty low, making it easy to squeeze into your shopping cart, even if you're on a budget.
