QUALITY

There are times when you want a hefty dose of caffeine for pre-workout performance. But on other occasions, like first thing in the morning or a late afternoon pick-me-up, what you’d get from a cup of coffee is more appropriate. ON’s Essential Amino Energy™ offers the best of both with a formula that delivers 100mg of caffeine from natural sources per 2-scoop serving.

I’ve been using this product for years and I love it. I’ve tried it as a pre-workout supplement but I found that it works best for me intra-workout. Would recommend this product to anyone.

I've been using this product for a few years, on and off and it is my #1 recommendation for first time user of pre-workout. These flavors taste best with ice cold water, natural watermelon, not so much.

Not too much caffeine for me, I like to take it before I ride my bike. Too much for before I run though. Grape FTW

This is my go-to amino acid supplement for morning workouts. It really gets me through the whole workout without feeling hungry or fatigued. Grape and fruit fusion are the only ones I like though, so I switch back and forth. If you like really sweet jolly rancher flavors, then you might like some of the other flavors like watermelon and orange. I've tried BCAA Energy from Evolution Nutrition and it is comparable in effect, but the flavors are much worse in comparison, as well as the mixing ability in water. Make sure you look at the caffeine content, as this might not be the best for you if you work out mostly in the afternoon and are sensitive to caffeine. This is great for pre, intra, and post workout.

The Naturally Flavored Simply Fruit Punch is by far the worst I have ever tasted. Very little fruit flavor and not sure if I can force anymore down before throwing the container in the trash. All other flavors tried have been good and easy to drink.

Awful. Both have a bitter taste and strong like a bad pre workout. I even double my water and it’s still terrible. I am completely disappointed because the regular ones are so good but the natural is so bad.
