      This is the first pre-workout I have ever taken and it was amazing. I have a sensitive stomach and I had no side effects. I took it on an empty stomach to do my fasted cardio this morning. I can usually struggle through a 2 mile run but this morning I was able to run 4 straight miles without even thinking about it. Cant wait to take it again tomorrow!

      So Painful

      This product tastes great but makes me disgustingly sick within twenty minutes, the worst stabbing pain in my stomach ever. I recommend C4.

            Comments about Optimum Nutrition Essential Amino Energy - 270 Grams Powder:

            Love this product! I've been using it for about 3 months now as a pre-workout to help push me through my morning workouts (2 scoops). I've always gotten VERY jittery/itchy with other similar products, but I have not had any problems with this one. It gives me a nice clean boost of energy with no crash. It also tastes good (I've tried the watermelon and fruit punch). Definitely worth a shot if you're looking for something new!

            I drink this before excercise and heavy work days at UPS sorting packages. The flavor is really good, at least in a standard bottle of water with 2 scoops.

            I did not have any dizziness or flush feeling at all.

            This by far is the best pre work out product I have boutght. Awesome taste no after effects. I have bought three of these and I would say the Watermellon flavor is my favorite.

              I take this in the mornings once again when I feel the need in the day. It helps me recover faster and gives a good pump when I use it as a pre workout.

                            I use this preworkout. Tastes great, provides a little kick to help with the workout, but nothing crazy. No complaints other than the amount in the container. I used 2 scoops everyday and it only lasted 25 days (when 2 scoops = 1 serving and the bottle says 30 servings). I will still buy.

                                          I typically use this everytime about 20-30 min before I go work out. I use about 8 fluid ounces of water with two scoops. It really mixes well and tastes great. I have been using this product for about 6 months and it really gives me a boost of energy and endurance. I find myself doing more reps with more weight. I don't get any jitters after taking it which is a plus. Overall, it is a great product for the price. I will definitely continue purchasing this product

                                          The watermelon flavor is classic jolly rancher. Better tasting Bcaa drink than most I have tried, and the Caffeine comes from green tea. The energy boost you get is more natural and natural feeling. No Jitters. I drink this first thing in the morning. With me, they have a customer for life.

                                            I actually went into the store to buy another product I had researched but the guy working there suggested Amino Energy instead. He said most women like it because it's not extreme but still produces results. He was right! The taste of the watermelon is like drinking a Jolly Rancher and the energy I got was just enough but not too much that I felt overpowered by it. I onlt take about 3 scoops which is towards to minimun serving but it works for me. It have great workouts and love this product.
                                            It didn't get 5 stars but nothing is absolutely perfect =]

                                            I've been drinking the amino energy for a long time so when I saw the new flavor I decided to try it, well to be honest I just don't like it as much as the orange which is what i will go back to once I finish this jar.

                                                I take Amino Energy 30 minutes before my workouts and it gives me that needed extra energy boost with out that jittery feeling I got from all the other pre-workout powders I tried in the past, and this flavor tastes really good.

                                                  Best Answer: Most doctors don't wan you using caffeine while you are pregnant. This product does contain a considerable amount of caffeine.
