It's better that it's black, although the salty XTend tends to leave white marks on the black top. Still the same though, blender ball is golden. I really like this product.
I can clearly taste the white chocolate on this one. Very sweet, and can be a good compliment to the dark chocolate one. Really tastes great.
And she usually wants me to massage her foot. Now she doesn't complain that much on pain and have much regular mood swings. I hope this product helps her.
For a time-release protein mix, this is cheap and quite effective. The flavor is good too, really tastes like Fudge brownie. A little chalky, but I since have gotten used to it.

I've began going to the gym for a week before I got this post-workout supplement, so I know the feeling of waking up in the morning feeling all sore and stuff from yesterday's training (I train in the afternoon-evening timeframe). From the first day of using this, the sore feeling is gone. I feel like I recover much faster, and I can feel the gains but not much. Comparing it with the more recent product "Torrent", people say that Torrent is a more up-to-date formula but LAVA still covers the basics. Well, I can say that what they say are true, this still works. I'll be trying Torrent once I empty this one to test it too.
This product is really a wire whisk in a bottle. I use it for my supplement shakes and for cooking omelettes. Really great, the blender ball really helps mixing up everything.
This is a great product. My father uses this with me since the fish oil he bought are not enteric coated, so he gets stomach upsets and fish refluxes with it. With this product, no fish burps at all.
It is a little salty for my taste since it's full of electrolytes, and the scoop per 8oz is very concentrated. I feel more thirsty on the initial sip. But once it kicks in (and it kicks very fast, around 30 sec to a minute), you can feel that little recovery that will make you go a little bit further in your workout. And I feel hydrated, no cramps and stuff. Really great intra-workout supplement.
OK, yellow piss. Not so yellow in my case. I definitely felt the difference in energy levels especially since I am on a reduced calorie diet. I spread it out across the day, 1 tablet per major meal.
But I can't gauge the effect it has in my body.
