This is an updated review for this product. MusclePharm has got it right with Amino 1 in terms of nutritional profile and taste, especially in Cherry Limeade. I am a little bit disappointed that they have discontinued this in the 50 serving size. I have purchased this a few times, and almost always in the Cherry Limeade flavor. This is probably one of the best flavors that MP has created, hands down, and will always be your go to once you try it. This mixes very easily. I prefer my BCAA’s more on the light side, so even with one scoop and 12 to 20 oz of water, this still has that great cherry taste. A bonus to this is that this particular formula keeps you hydrated. I have noticed that the price for this has gone up and they have discontinued the bigger sizes, but this is still a solid purchase overall. I haven’t tried Fruit Punch so I can’t comment on that flavor This would not be my first BCAA of choice, but I would recommend to others looking for a solid BCAA to take. I would purchase again.

Picked up a tub of this at a local GNC because it was half-price. I'm a strong believer and user of either Glutamine or BCAAs as recovery products. Good profile of ingredients and effective. The flavor I got was Fruit Punch and I know a lot of people are just plain tired of it, but I don't mind at all. However, this has got to be the worst Fruit Punch flavoring I've ever tried. Like I said, good profile but the flavor brings down the overall score.

The bad...Cherry Limeade tastes like a weak, old Hi-C Fruit Punch. Not gag-worthy, but not good. The stronger I mix it the BETTER it tastes. The good...a GREAT, stimulant-free intra-workout powder with Citruline, full amino profile, coconut water, magnesium, B6 etc. Keeps me hydrated and feeling strong through an 90-100 minutes of weight training and cardio. Good pump from the citruline. Very pleased with this product. I sometimes mix 1/2 scoop of this to make my Amino Build taste better.

I initially bought this because I had never tried this brand of Aminos and the price was good. I overall just thought the taste was terrible.

Love this product. Its great for when you want something more than just water, Gatorade or PowerAde. I use it while I gym and just love that I am using a more natural product than what is out on the market. I also use it for work since I am very active at work great way to stay hydrated on the hot summer days. Love the taste of it and I would recommend it to anyone.

I believe that all aminos have some alright taste, but this is good. Like this is absolutely solid right here. Absolutely recommend

This has a bit of a sweet taste to it but a very pleasant flavor. Reminds me of the Sonic Cherry Limeade you can get at the drive in, but with the stuff your body needs to rebuild instead of being bad for you.

Doesn't taste that good and didn't feel or see any benefit in taking this. I would recommend this product. I love assault pre workout but not a big fan of this.

Hands down overall a great product. Some caffeine, as a muscle milk pro series substance, to go about your focus post and pre workout would be a touchdown. But on a nutritional level and taste level this blows muscle milk pro series to the water and back. If you practice over 400 plus pull ups, 600 plus push ups, and 800 plus crunches a week on which you run weightless and weight packed and hit iron on THE SAME DAYS - squats on another too than recovery should be fine to your routine... it's when you break a bit longer than usual to adjust to new plan where you need to drink more of this. Totally ready to try the next ones next batch.

I've only used the Cherry Limeade but I've been drinking it for a little over a year now. Bummer they stopped selling it in the big size so I just buy two smaller ones at the same time. Anways, I like drinking this during and after my workouts. I even drink it when I'm mowing my lawn or yard work. It's refreshing and I do notice a little more umph to keep going and help in recovery. I will continue purchasing it.

I've been using this MP product for a while now and was disappointed when they discontinued my favorite flavor. I am using the orange mango flavor and cannot stand it. The flavor is so weak. I might as well be drinking just straight water. Won't get this flavor ever again.

I have been using Amino1 for last few months and switched from Best BCAA. Overall, I am satisfied with this product. The reason I moved to Amino1 from Best BCAA was the BCAA ratio and Hydration component with presence of coconut water. Things I like about Amino1 - Good recovery post workout. I do not need electrolyte or Gatorade post workout. The presence of Coconut Water and Citric-ness helps me recover faster. - Presence of Vitamin B6 and Magnesium Oxide. Not so good about Amino1 - Flavor. You easy tend to get over the taste and the punchy citric-ness makes you less likely to have the drink. - Most of the times I am mixing my BCAAs or Amino with Whey Protein (I know I know, Whey Protein already has BCAA components added). I would prefer natural taste for BCAA which does not impact taste of my Whey Protein Shake. - Effectiveness: I do not see much difference compared to Best BCAA. I have not tried other BCAAs, though I expect something slightly more effective for muscle recovery post workout.

I absolutely HATED the taste of this product. To the point I couldn't even choke it down to finish it! Bummer because I really like MusclePharm's products!

AMINO1 is the bomb. Not only does the cherry limeade taste great, the product really works for hydration and recovery. Got the 50 serv bottle and will definitely order again!

I use this before a long bike ride 40+ miles. Tastes good, easy on the stomach and it boosts my performance.
