    Saw a PES package in mailbox and ran for my shaker cup haha.



    Name:  image-4111823079.jpg

Size:  583.9 KB

    Blueberry

    Dry characteristics:
    Opening the tub was a lot like opening a new Alphamine, that first crisp smell escaping. The scent actually isn't overwhelming or strong at all though, and the powder itself was white. Similar fluffy, very light powdery texture we are used to seeing in higher end amino powders.

    Mixability:
    BCAAs are hard to judge this way, especially with a 10:1:1 ratio, as quality leucine should be hard to mix into solution. When the powder was placed into the shaker it floated and no mixing occurred, good sign. Upon light shaking it dissolved fully and left a foam on top, which dissipated if left to sit. Again good signs of leucine content.

    Shaker cup was blue not the mixture, just felt suiting :P

    Taste:
    The part I had high expectations from PES for, and was not let down. Very enjoyable to drink, I mixed at half the directions (as I used 1 scoop) and the sweetness level was perfect. No overwhelming flavour which is good in my books, some artificially sweetened powders overdo this. Especially as this will be sipped intra workout. Quenched my thirst, some BCAAs just make me thirstier or have an annoying aftertaste present through the workout, this did not,

    Impressed with all initial observations made, buying several tubs now. The great thing is that these are all just bonuses, where it really shines is in its ingredients. The new intra workout supplement of choice.

    Hell of a job PES, thank you for the chance to try this out! Can't wait for the protein next

    Posted this in the other amino iv thread as well:
    So I was able to procure some blueberry burst samples as well so here's my review after 2 days of using this 2 times a day:

    Mix: the powder is very fine, but not so light that it "poofs" all over the place. It dissolves easily in just about any amount of water from 4-30+ oz. at first shake, there are a few of the normal white bcaa floaters but these dissolve within a few seconds. Like everyone else said, the powder is funny because it turns a yellow/green instead of the blue you might expect. Overall, it's easy to mix and leaves no real residue.

    Taste: the blueberry burst was about what you would expect. It has a nice "blue" flavor, similar to most blue raspberry type flavors. It's not too sweet and actually has quite a pleasant tartness to it that makes it less "candy"/fake like and much more fruity. Overall it's one of the best blue/fruity flavors I've had.

    Effects: so far I've dosed this two different ways and enjoyed both... First was one scoop sipped on during my morning fasted cardio and one scoop after to prolong the fasting period for a few hours. The second was 2 scoops intra workout. I had a really tough pull workout yesterday and am feeling pretty good since. Obviously nothing crazy to speak of but I didn't seem to have quite the lower back DOMS that I usually do after my deadlift days.

    Overall I would highly recommend this, even if the flavor was off (which it absolutely was not!) simply due to the profile. A really solid all around product that seems like the perfect fit for IF style dieting as well as general recovery. Can't wait to get some more and see how it works out longer term.

    So I mucked around, found out that α-hydroxyisocaproic acid is α-HICA so the question would be what the difference would be between using regular HICA and α-HICA. Also found out that Lemon Verbena Leaf is basically an anti-oxidant, I'm presuming this one does not impair MPS?

    EDIT: Just realized that α-HICA and HICA are the same thing :P Bwah ha ha ha. So the only new thing in there is the lemon verbena leaf. Good solid profile then, simple, to the point. If it tastes great as well, we're in business.

    Do antioxidants impair MPS in general? I believe it is quite the opposite, especially in us old folks
