    This is a great blend of BCAAs, aminos, and antioxidants, especially the watermelon extract providing citrulline. I blend it with beetroot juice (which naturally increases nitric oxide) and am very pleased with the taste. I have also blended Critical Aminos with spirulina to help increase focus and energy during a workout. I don't trust pre-workout formulas and worry about my blood pressure and potential liver damage, but not from this. So what's there to complain about? You use acesulfame potassium, an artificial sweetener that's worse than the other one here, sucralose, which is like Splenda. Too bad, otherwise this would be perfect!

      Tastes good.. Tad on the sweeter side. Mixes really well. Seems to be working. Especially after leg day I notice a quicker recovery. I drink it during and after my workout. I gave this 4 stars for the dyes and artificial sweetener.

      I have tried several brands of Amino +, this one is definitely one the best that I have tried and I'm not a huge fan of watermelon. No bitter after taste or mineral/watered down flavor. I look forward to giving fruit punch a shot.

          I have to say that I am totally obsessed with this stuff! Not too sweet like some other flavored BCAA powders. Mixes and tastes great. I would highly recommend you try this out... even better if you pick it up to try on a BOGO! :) Great for fasted cardio, during intense workouts, heck... I even have it sometimes if I am craving something sweet.

                I needed something to help with recovery in between the intense training sessions I have 4-5 days per week, so I started looking into BCAAs/Amino Acids. I must say this one (in Fruit Punch) tastes great. I've also noticed Im not as sore after my workouts, which allows me to train again the following day.

                I drink this during and after my workout like it says, and maybe on an off training day depending if I'm still pretty sore. The flavor is great and I can satisfy my cravings for something sweet to drink without worrying about sugar or other harmful things in most drinks out there.

                Would definitely recommend!

                  I take this powder mixed with water intra-workout. I get the same effect (less soreness, better recovery)as with more expensive BCAA powder. The price can't be beat for the quality of the product. It mixes very well in water. The only con (thus 4 stars) is the taste--something that can be gotten used to.

                  I use it post-workout. I have noticed incredible recovery times. As I switch up my routine or increase in intensity, I would normally experience soreness the next day. As I have been using this product, I rarely experience this any more. Taste is the only issue. However, I'm not picky and I've gotten used to it.

                    I use this product during my workouts. I mix it with juice and water and hit the gym. It really gives me the energy I need to get through my workouts. I also stack it with Kre-Aklyine and L-Arginine to really give me the boost I need. It doesnt give gas or an upset stomach. Since I use it during my workouts I dont have to worry about drinking anything after except for water. Awesome Stuff!!

                      Comments about BodyTech Critical Aminos XT - 15.9 Ounces Powder:

                      I use this product after each and every workout. There is some debate about taking extra BCAA's in addition to a high protein diet but when I take this, I notice the DOMS is less. Placebo? Maybe but even if it is, the less sore, the better.

                      Taste wise, it's not the best but far from the worst I've had.

                          This is a great blend of BCAAs, aminos, and antioxidants, especially the watermelon extract providing citrulline. I blend it with beetroot juice (which naturally increases nitric oxide) and am very pleased with the taste. I have also blended Critical Aminos with spirulina to help increase focus and energy during a workout. I don't trust pre-workout formulas and worry about my blood pressure and potential liver damage, but not from this. So what's there to complain about? You use acesulfame potassium, an artificial sweetener that's worse than the other one here, sucralose, which is like Splenda. Too bad, otherwise this would be perfect!

                              I stood in the store for 20 minutes and compared all that were in this price range. This by far has the quality and potency you want. And it has NO SOY which most others do. Its insanely sweet for the concetrated scoop, but tolerable! lol

                                  This product ranks with the best out there when it comes to recovery. It clears the fatigue, restores focus, minimizes discomfort and keeps me going on workout days. A great product for the price.

                                  Best Answer: Yes! My husband started using it and recommended that I give it a try. I did and have been enjoying the benefits (faster recovery time, decreased soreness, and increased stamina and endurance during a hard workout) ever since. I have been using it for about two years myself and start getting anxious when we are running low! I don't want to run out completely!
