The first thing I noticed receiving this in the mail was the quality of the packaging - even had a batch number in it. Professional to the core. Mixability is at the top of it's class. The flavor was actually subtle - not too sweet or tart at all. I LOVE this as I can mix it in a full bottle at the gym and add just a little flavor to plain old water. Taken during workout this had a noticeable effect on my endurance AND recovery. Had a severe case of tendonitis & this helped me push through and still get my full workouts in! I recommend 100%!

I found the Blue Raspberry to be a little on the tart side but I mixed it with a little extra water and it was fine. Mixability is great as well. just a couple of shakes and it's good to go. Quality is top notch as I can tell on a day when I miss it since there's a little more soreness.

Looking into this product, the ratio of BCAAs as well as the absorption blend is something that a lot of BCAAs do not include. Taken intra-workout I found it very beneficial in regards to endurance strength and the flavor was pretty spot on! Overall this is a pretty cheap, solid, good tasting product! Recommend to at least try it out!

Great price and good quality! In general, I like this brand because it pays more attention to the quality of the product rather than packaging and .... !! Love this BCAA because of its wonderful taste and energy boost during my lifting. Super !!

I have been putting this into my gym gallon daily and I love it. It definitely helps I'm soreness. I've tried my fair share of bcaas. Obviously this is one of those products that won't change your life or be incredibly noticeable. But if you're in tune enough with your body and you know about bcaa's and they're essential function in building muscle, recovery, and many other benefits. Including quality BCAA with proper supplementation and diet are great for muscle growth. Sd pharma really delivers a quality product with a great BCAA ratio. They don't just give a "prop blend" everything is right in the label. Love all their products

I tried the Blue Raspberry and it was a nice refreshing flavor. Most blueberries you try are usually very tart but if you are looking for something on the SLIGHTLY sweeter side this is a solid option. The mix-ability was a nice and quick. Recovery with this product was on point during a cut. If you are bulking you can honestly skip a BCAA product, since you are getting more than enough in your diet. I used 1 scoop of this product right before my fasted morning workouts. One thing I would change is make the flavor slightly more prominent as I'm a cheap guy and I like to spread 1 scoop in a gallon of water and drink it as flavored water.

Very tasty BCAA. The only single reason I rate flavor a 9 is because I recall getting a bit sick of it by the end of the tub. But.... it was delicious for quite some time. Pinapple sounds good as well. Mixed perfectly though.

I really enjoyed this product, I like the simplicity of the ingredients that other brands offer. It has what is helpful and no more. The flavor was also excellent and wasn't something I got tired of drinking day in day out. Also, this product mixed perfectly with a shaker bottle, no clumps, no residue. I would definitely recommend this product to someone looking for a great BCAA product. Great for aiding recovery and boosting results!

I was lucky enough to be sent this product by SD and was very excited to try it out as I often work out fasted fueled by a pwo and rely heavily on BCAAs during. With regards to taste it was pretty good, nothing too extreme which is good for me! It mixed well as well so no complaints there. I do use quite a large amount of water though so my taste may be diluted compared to other users. I trust SD massively and with the help of their other products I have dropped my BF% a huge amount from 22 to 18.5% over the last few months. This product has helped continue that trend. My workouts have been solid and most importantly regarding the product my recovery has been good. I realize people use BCAAs for different reasons and there is varying science behind them but this is a very good product and works very well for me and my style of training.

In September, I got the opportunity to try this product and log my use of it. I enjoyed the product very much. The taste of the blue raspberry was superb, and mixed well with other products; the pineapple, however, was a little plastic-like. When you mix the product with water (either flavour), you will get this film on the top of the drink. Whether that's the BCAA compound or residue or what, I don't know, but I drink it anyway, and it's still good.

I am used to a 2:1:1 BCAA ratio product, so I find it a bit interesting that SD Pharm has chosen a 9:6:5 ratio (which is extremely close to 2:1:1...so close that I wonder why they chose to use such a slight variation). The product tasted pretty good, with my only complaint being that it didn't mix ideally and took a few rinsing cycles to get it all out of my mixer bottle. Otherwise, it's a really solid product worth using if you like to get some BCAA's while working out or immediately afterward.

Simply put, these BCAA's are delicious and effective. I highly recommend the Blue Raspberry to anyone who is looking for new BCAA's. It mixes well, tastes delicious, and greatly helps in the body's recovery process. The profile is also top-notch.

The Blue Raspberry tastes great and mixes very well. No left over, gritty feeling in your mouth. Very little water was needed. I tried training fasted one morning and all I took before training was 1 scoop and I still had a great workout, setting multiple PR's, despite no pre-workout meal. I also take this product during my cardio session and before bed to help speed up recovery. One of my favorite BCAA products.

This product is a solid BCAA product, with the addition of the AstraGin a Patented Absorption Support Complex, really puts it a notch about your plain old BCAA. its versatile and can be used any time of the day. You combine that with a great flavoring system and you cant lose. I never got bored with the flavor as i finished my tub. i will be looking forward to purchasing this BCAA product when i cut for my next bodybuilding competition.

I received a tub of blue raspberry and a tub of pineapple through a promotion in the forums, and I'm very impressed with the SD Pharmaceuticals BCAA's. They both tasted good, but the blue raspberry was my favorite of the two by far! The pineapple left a slight after taste in my shaker even after washing it, but the product itself doesn't require much water to mix well and helps greatly with recovery from brutal workouts. Recommend this product to any one!

Blue raz is by far the best tasting blue raz BCAA I've tried. Highly reccomend to anyone who wants to switch up their BCAA's. Love sipping on during my workout with some intraworkout carbs, and also throughout the day!! Give it a try!! You don't be disappointed !!

Both flavors taste great during my workout. Nice change from just water. More importantly, when using these BCAAs i do notice a significant decrease in soreness the next day. Definitely allows for less recovery time, so you can go back to gym faster and hit the weights harder.
