Did a lot of research as well as reading logs and reviews and ended up here. Had free samples of other products such as amino energy, etc - and above all I love this Monster Amino. Was lifting for a month without it and noticed the difference instantly just about. Because I am taking this with a list of other sumplements ( This is the only amino product) I am not going to say it gave me more pump / size / energy / blah blah blah, what it did give me was MUCH faster recovery without the onset of pain, and after doing heavier weights did not have the feeling of being whooped like previously. Highly recommend this to everyone!! Just bought a fruit punch flavor and hoping its as drinkable as the sour apple is.

I like to take this mixed with my pre-workout. It has a great taste. I also bought the sour apple flavor, but haven't tried that one yet. The Monster series from Cytosport is the way to go if you are going to buy a Cytosport product.

Highly recommended, I normally take Xtend however, I was looking for a decent BCAA with lower sodium. I found my solution here.

Great taste and I know when it is a part of my pre-workout. I half dose this product between my pre-workout and post workout drinks. I also make this mandatory on off days to help recover. When I am sore this products seems to speed recovery and I am not sure why. I don't ask to many questions though because a simple stack of this, creatine and MRI Black Powder has me gunning to heft up some weights. I am on a budget and do not like to over use products to get big so I try to simplify my products. Monster Amino's is a must in my humble opinion.

Top notch BCAA supplement. With all the research on Leucine I will never use a non 8:1:1 ratio mixture probably ever. The flavor is not bad and I have strong belief that I have progressed more as of late using the high Leucine BCAA supplements than ever before.

I came across this product shortly after I started training again and it has been a god send to me. A scoop before and after a workout and two scoops throughout the day on my off days leaves me feeling great. Even after a brutal workout, 2 scoops and I am "right as rain." I love this product. Now it does not taste all that great but I did not buy it for its critically acclaimed flavor. PS: It also works well when mixed with your pre workout supps like C4 or Assault. Taste is even more awful but well worth the benefit.

This is a good amino supplement. I have tried and I prefer others, but this was a good deal so I tried it out. I would buy again and the taste isn't bad. Mix it with other fruit flavored pre-workouts and it can taste really good before or during a workout.

I've been taking monster amino for a month now, i was a little bit wary to try a cytosport product since i've never been truly wowed by them but this one turned out to be an exception. I used to religiously take scivation xtend, but this product has opened my eyes to see that there are other noteworthy bcaa products out there. One of my favorite things about this product, aside from the physical benefits, is that all ingredients are fully disclosed! Also, no artificial dyes and no sugar is great too! On to the physical aspect of the product- i definitely felt better throughout my workouts while using monster amino. I followed the same routine as with xtend (one scoop 10 mins prior to workout, after drinking preworkout 30 mins before) and i hands down preferred monster amino. I felt great throughout my whole workout and found that i was able to push my body longer and harder. One downside, however, was that the taste wasn't great and the mixability wasn't great either...but it's ok bc it has no sugar or dyes. I'm going to try aminolast by gaspari this month and see how it compares!

A solid profile on top of a great taste help this product out in the long run. I definitely felt a difference in recovery times and soreness whilst using it. Although in the end I prefer Xtend this is an awesome supplement and a great way to introduce more Bcaa's into your supplement regime .

This stuff rocks! it makes my recovery time significantly faster and puts some meat on me! I love the 8:1:1 ratio of BCAAs; its perfect for muscle recovery and strength building, as well as size. The only complaint i have is the taste is pretty foul, but I don't buy powder because it tastes good, I buy it for the results. Will definitely buy again and I highly recommend this product to anybody looking to buy some quality BCAA powder!

This is definitely the best BCAA supplement there is.I had the biggest gains with this stuff!Everyone was asking me how i got this much better so fast,so it was noticeable.I took it twice daily.30 min pre to training and during workouts.I have tried other BCAA supplements like amino-x and xtend.They do tatse better than monster amino,but in terms of results this product blows them away!

I like the content of this product. I like the BCAA ratio. I like the luecine peptides. Taste doesnt compare to products such as Gaspari Aminolast and Scivation Xtend. Pretty dissappointed in the taste. I have been drinking aminolast for months and the taste is 5x better. i have fruit punch and it just taste generic and yuck.
