As a longtime Amino Energy user I love the taste of this product. I didn't think it could get much better than the grape flavored Amino energy, but candy grape blows it out of the water. Literally tastes like nerds candy.
The profile of this amino is better than Amino Energy as well. While AE uses taurine as it's main ingredient, Charged Amino uses branch chain amino acids in the proven 2:1:1 ratio. This is better for recovery, although I would still use a dedicated BCAA/EAA supplement for intra/post workout. Charged Amino also contains electrolytes which is awesome for something you drink throughout the day. I used to worry about getting dehydrated drinking caffeinated drinks, but now I am actually helping hydrate myself by taking in extra electrolytes.
This product mixes very well and is a little more clear than Amino Energy. 2 scoops also perfectly flavors 16oz of water so it's perfect to sip on throughout the day. It has replaced Bang and other energy products for my afternoon pick me up.
