        What do you expect? It's an ON product and most of their stuff is legit. I keep one at home and one at work. It's great in the morning and great for that afternoon pick me up. It also works great as a pre workout supplement. This stuff had me pumped and ready to go for more. Unlike some of the preworkout supps out there. My only wish for this product, would be for a bigger size. I would be willing to pay for that. I do have suggestion or two for the ON family. Either fill up the majority of the containers that you sell these products for or cut back on the plastic or whatever you guys are using nowadays. Seems like a waste. Actually that should go out to all of the companies!

        I can't say there were any real negatives about it, I just didn't notice any positives. Tastes fine, no jitters, no digestive issues... but no energy. I would take about 3 heaping scoops of it, so not quite up to their "max energy" serving of 6. But at 6 scoops a day, it would probably be gone in a week. Even with 4(roughly) scoops, I didn't feel any more energized than when I drink coffee. And according to the canister, I was getting around 200mg of caffeine, which is about double a cup of coffee.
        Looks like I'll stick with my coffee pre-workout, where I can pay less and get quadruple the 'servings'.

          a nicely bundled combination of amino acids with a pre workout. very affordable, and works great. stacks well with gold standard chocolate whey (mix all into 1 shake) for a pre workout with amino support.

            I have a high tolerance for Caffeine so four scoops for me is awesome. Drink it right before work on empty stomach and curbs my appetite until my 11am snack. Love it!

            I've been using this product daily for about three weeks, I've noticed a sustained energy level through my entire workout (2+ hours daily.

            I don't like the large dosage and It would be nice if it had a little more caffeine in it.

                I use this before workouts when I am dragging a bit, and it lifts me up mentally and physically to make for better & more efficient workouts. I've tried another brand of pre-workout fuel before that didn't do much for me. Additionally, this doesn't upset my stomach in the least. I love it!!!

                  I like to take Amin.o. Energy before my workouts. It gives me an extra boost and the taste is delicious! I love that you can adjust how much or little product you use and determine your own outcome.

                  I love the variety of flavors that Optimum Nutrition offers and the fruit punch is very good!

                  Product mixes well and is great for pre and post workout as well as during or as an energy drink!

                    This was the 1st pre-workout booster that I have ever tried, I was very amazed the first time I tried it (2scoops). But my following workouts were not the same, maybe my body got used to it? I figured since energy drinks have little affect on me, maybe that had something to do with it. Anyways, I drink the pre-workout and just add a tad bit more, the flavor is great (with very cold water). I do recommend if you are a person who is looking for a mild pre-workout, no side effects or jitters.

                        I recently took this supplement and it's so good. The taste is out standing and taste like an air head sort of. But when I took this and went the the gym I saw myself doing more reps and running faster and longer and lifting more. It's good for the price and if your looking for something to give a boost or a lot of more energy then I recommend buying this.

                          Like most Optimum Nutrition products, this is a great product. I like the energy without having the anxious, jittery feeling. I haven't done more than 1/2 of the maximum dosage and have been very pleased with the energy both as a pre-workout boost and afternoon pick-me-up. I think the price is pretty reasonable compared to other products. I'll continue to use this product for a while.

                            I really like this product. I have been using this for 2 years now regularly and it has worked great. I work out about 2-3x's a week and this works really good. No jitters or "hyper-ness", just good energy. I use 2 scoops with about 10-12oz of water and it mixes easily with just a spoon and tastes good. I don't need to take any after my workout but sometimes will later in the day if I workout again. Yes I have tried several other "popular" brands and I like this one best, especially for the price. Stay Healthy... ;-)

                              If you want something that doesn't give you the jitters, this is a great place to start. Not big on the stimulants so this is a great choice, plus it tastes great. Will try the other flavors when i'm done with this one. I will agree with the other posts that they could either make a smaller can (same price) or fill this one up more and charge a little bit more, I'd still buy it.

                              I used the product as a pre-workout and loved it. I had some great pumps with this stuff. Nice smooth Energy that didnt make me jittery. Made my workouts last longer. My strenth and endurance went up a good amount while i was on this product.

                                I have very cold fingers & toes that worsen during my workout. I take this to increase blood flow to my extremities and it also give me a nice boost of energy. It mixes very well & tastes delicious!

                                  I'm a senior learning how to exercise on a regular basis. I started what I call ''the granny jog'' which is basically tiny steps with 2 pound weights, but its not walking. I move around a lot with my arms and now, I try and lift my legs higher, almost marching and I try to push myself to go faster. With all this ''working out'' I would get home and feel like someone took the stuffing out of me. I went to the Vitamin Shoppe, where the people really care about you, and they showed me this product. I tried it. I tried the recommended dose but it was too much. I got weirded out. But when I took less, I really got to enjoy the way this product replenishes my muscles. Now I take half a dose before I go out and the other half when I come back. That's a just right amount for me with this product. But I do wish they would fill the container more. The powder is so fine, if I get to close to making my serving, I'll start sneezing! But those are minor complaints for sure. The product is good!

                                      I rate this very high for many reason, but i can sum it into one statement. It's the best product for your money. I have tried many different products, just as you have probably. I have found this to be great tasting, great reaction, great feel, great price. the only thing i could tell Opti. is make the bottle smaller or increase the amount per bottle. Just like every other product out there, the bottle isn't full. My wife is a personal Trainer, so i asked her to try it now i have to buy double cause she loves the stuff.

                                          This stuff is great. It gives you a solid boost of healthy energy (green tea extract), and the amino delivery allows your muscles to go further before exhaustion. No jitters, dizziness, or abnormal side effects, just healthy energy and a great workout. 2 scoops was plenty for me, which I think is fair for the price of it. I would suggest taking it with a decent amount of food in you, otherwise it will leave your stomach will feel a little uneasy. All of what you need, nothing of what you don't.

                                              This product is great and does not contain harmful ingredients. However, my wife experienced slight dizziness which I think was due to lack of hydration. It gives you tremendous amount of energy and amino that you need for your workout. The only drawback is the price. I go through one container every 20 days. If you are on a tight budget or novice athlete, I would think twice before buying it.

                                                  I want to clarify to those reading the reviews that this product is not intended to give you a "pump" like NO products do. I think the other reviewers used the term to explain the energy they felt from using this. I would very much agree that the energy from two scoops for a 165 lb muscular adult male is sufficient to get you going at 530 am. If you are really slacking try 2.5 but I would not advise much more unless your tolerance is high.

                                                      1 1/2 to 2 scoops is great for a boost

                                                          I was a little skeptical before I took this stuff but now I see that this stuff is legit! At first I didnt feel anything but as soon as I got to the gym and started doing preacher curls I knew that it was working! I'm definately hooked!

                                                              I use this before my workouts every morning. Excellent energy and I am seeing results. Also, this product happens to be vegan so I'm thankful this product exists for pre-workout boosts. A little expensive but highly recommended.

It's great in the morning and great for that afternoon pick me up. It also works great as a pre workout supplement. This stuff had me pumped and ready to go for more. Unlike some of the preworkout supps out there. My only wish for this product, would be for a bigger size. I would be willing to pay for that. I do have suggestion or two for the ON family. Either fill up the majority of the containers that you sell these products for or cut back on the plastic or whatever you guys are using nowadays. Seems like a waste. Actually that should go out to all of the companies!

I got super pumped and jittery. So I used 2 scoops and it worked perfect, my veins were popping and I was super focused in my workouts, kept me in the gym longer too. Fruit Fusion taste great!

                                                                                  I really like the Beta-Alanine additive, and the lower price if are lucky to get it on clearance. Its a really solid amino that can be consumed all day long. I usually have it Brunch time for a drink, and then during my workout. Keeps me focused all day and tastes decent. Does what it claims, which is more than most.

                                                                                  Julianna T on Jul 19, 2014

If you read under "Directions" the 2nd to the last sentence states that it contains BA. Personally the sensation is not as extreme as other products I've used. I love this product because it tastes delicious and is a fine powder that mixes well so none of the beta-Alanine "chunks" in the bottom of my shaker.
                                                                                  I also like that there are several options/measurements for this product to regulate how much "energy" you get.

If you're looking for Creatine, check on other items. Then click on the "supplemental facts". If that contains Creatine (or what ever you're looking for, the label will say.
                                                                                  I have been using this for about 2 years and like it. The scooper os small so you can adjust your servings well. Take care

Most "family practice" MDs only have basic knowledge. If you have diabetes, speak to your DR who handles that for you and they should know. If their answer seems "odd" to you, get another opinion until you feel comfortable AND understand their answer/ explanation.

So far its a great product. prior to working out I take a pre workout drink (1.M.R). My workout consist for about 1.5 to 2hrs. I use this product during my workouts to push through and also as a post work out drink. I only take 2 scoops which is plently for me.

But if you really want to mix it before work then it should be fine that way but if you can put it in a fridge then that would be recommended.

                                                                                  Does anyone stack this with anything? I have been using the O.N. BCAA powder, but it doesn't have the arginine or many of the other ingredients in it. I do not notice any kind of "energy boost" with just the BCAA. I was wondering if this could be stacked with the BCAA or if there is enough in the Amino Energy.

                                                                                  I have been using this for a couple months now, and I just started training for a half -marathon. After I get done running I feel bloated and a bit gassy, should I not use this when training for the race or is this normal with just running?
