This was also included in one of my monthly boxes!
I added the water, shook it up, and hopped on the treadmill.
It mixed really well, no clumps. The taste was sort of Jolly Rancher-ish. It was sweet, but not overly. Although, I find that I have become sensitive to what I find sweet as compared to what others may.
All in all, I was pleasantly surprised by it and would use it again.
I only wish that it had L-glutamine in it too so that I didn't have to mix it or take it separately.
Yep, I buy it from Vitamin Shoppe. I began using it when I was starting to train to compete, so the beginning of 2012. I still use it, that is if I don't space out some days. I sampled GAT Adenoflex Hematogenic & Mass Enhancing Powder in the Grape Bubblegum flavor.
I'm not sure that it exactly tasted like grape or bubblegum. There was a fruity sweetness to it, but I can't put my finger on what I thought it tasted like. It was a little chalky in consistency. Maybe I didn't shake it enough. However, I took it after lifting and when I was starting my cardio. (I didn't notice it's best taken after eating a meal with carbs.) Maybe it was in my head, but I felt a little more pumped both physically and mentally. I almost felt a little thermogenic boost, though they don't talk about that. I guess if you think about it, though, it is supposed to be a muscle, blood, and plasma expander. This would lead me to believe that expanded tissues would give a greater area for blood flow which would lead to a little more of a "hyped" feeling? That's what I'm thinking, yeah. I read that you have to load this one for the affect. I have more samples, so I'll have to see if I notice any difference later. Next was Six Star Whey Protein Plus in Triple Chocolate.
I admit, this was good. I didn't have a shaker cup clean, so I used an old rubber maid measuring bottle that had a screw on top. I did mix it with 8 oz of unsweetened almond milk. For not being in a shaker bottle, I was impressed with the mixing of it after I shook it all around. The flavor was good too, nice and chocolate-y! Since this post is getting rather lengthy, I'll wrap it up for now. I'll add whatever I use tomorrow to next week's list. =) As a side note, I'd like to mention that I was not compensated for any of this. Hahaha, ya'll should know this as I'm a minor, teeny, beginning athlete with only one competition under the belt. I pay for my monthly Jacked in a Box. I pick up samples from shows and stores, but I also buy samples if I'm interested in trying them out. I would rather try it before I spend the big bucks on a huge tub. This is all just my opinion, and it's a good record for me to go back and see what I liked and didn't without keeping yet another notebook!
