Purchased this a couple months or so ago whilst visiting the area, the team member their (i think it was JC) was very informative and helpful.
About the product - after taking it for approximately a month I noticed my work outs were solid, the strength and ability to lift/push heavy was there, I had no fatigue, no crash and burn. ON really stood up to there name with this one.
The only thing I did notice is I trialed a month without it and my strength levels dropped, I usually go to the gym after work and found myself to be very fatigued.
Overall, Amino Energy really did top up my energy and any depleted amino levels to get through my work out but also left me feeling solid after the gym with minimal muscular pain.
