Nice blend of amino acids. Great for energy and my skin looks great. Husband takes this just prior to work-out and loves it.

Mejora el rendimiento y recuperación muscular

Posted by 4986061986473625769 on Jun 21, 2014

Un producto que realmente se nota si se toma pre y post entreno siempre, pero a la dosis que indica, 3 cápsulas. Con menos de eso es difícil notar nada, así que no vale la pena escatimar. Tomar 3 comprimidos antes y 3 después de entrenar, y así tendrás para 20 entrenos ya que vienen 120 cápsulas. La calidad buena, facil de tragar y sin efectos secundarios.

A work in progress...

Posted by 4676505815912934872 on Apr 15, 2014

I have only had this for a month or so now and have been using on a fairly regular basis (especially the morning after workouts). The only thing I find quite frustrating with it is the daily amount recommended. It is up to 4 pills in one sitting (and 1-2 times a day) which seems like a lot (considering they are the size of horsepills). I am not sure of how effective it is, yet, so I can't speak for that, though I have noticed a bit of a change in the amount of energy I have during my workouts.
