Optimum Nutrition Essential AmiN.O. Energy Review

Over the past few years Optimum Nutrition’s Essential AmiN.O. Energy has become a staple in my daily routine. Whether I’m trying to gain weight, burn fat, or just looking for a quick pick me up, AmiN.O. Energy is a personal favorite. Check out the review below, and decide for yourself if this product is right for you.

What To Look For When Buying A Supplement

  1. Main ingredient
  2. Effectiveness
  3. Taste
  4. Side effects
  5. Cost

The main ingredient in this product is amino acids (5 g per serving).

Amino Acids Benefits

  • Prevents Catabolism (breakdown of muscle)
  • Increased Protein Synthesis
  • Increased Energy
  • Reduced Fatigue
  • Supports Weight Loss and Fat Burning
  • Supports Recovery

I’ve found AmiN.O Energy to be extremely effective before, during and after workouts. How? With a 160 mg “Energy Blend”, I’m able to stay energized and focused throughout my workout.  This particular “Energy Blend” has 50 mg of caffeine per scoop, not per serving, so keep that in mind. Also, I typically get a good pump after taking this product. Lets discuss the taste, I generally mix two scoops into about half gallon of water and love it. Optimum Nutrition also has wide a variety of different flavors to choose from. A few of my personal favorites are Green Apple and Concord Grape, I couldn’t pick just one. As for the side effects, I have not experienced any or heard of any negative side effects from taking this product. Lastly, the cost, I typically get the 65 serving container which costs roughly $38.00. Lets do the math, $38.00 for 65 servings comes to $0.58 per serving. Give or take a few pennies.
