Amino Energy Reviews
One satisfied customer said, “This product was recommended to me by a co worker and now all of us are hooked. Although I LOVE coffee, it’s been nice to have found something to replace the expense. Doesn’t give you the jitters. You can drink however much you want-2,3,4, or 6 scoops it doesn’t matter! I like that I could drink just enough for a pick me up in the afternoon but it won’t keep me up late. (Im sensitive to caffeine) I also use this as a preworkout supplement because everything else Ive tried is too strong. Oh and of course the BCAA’s are an added bonus for muscle recovery. Love the fruit fusion flavor. Been drinking it for a while and I’m still not sick of it.”
One dissatisfied customer said, “This is the second time I’ve purchased the product. As for the energy level, it’s okay. However, my complaint is that they cheat you on the amount of the product. Pictures are of a brand new can. As you can see, the can is less than half way full. The first time this happened, I thought it was a fluke. Apparently not. Message to the company: either shorten the can or add more product to the current can size. The Fruit Fusion flavor tastes horrible…very bitter.”
