My take on rule 1. It’s a good option and I’d buy it again for sure. Just don’t have it after just finishing a tub of superior protein or spartan whey bc those two are unreal and kinda like when the opening act outperforms the headliner at a concert-choc pb and birthday cake are top notch. Red velvet is very good and banana is good but I got bored with it after about half the tub.
Not tried superior yet and I have a tub of spartan cinna crunch still unopened I need to try. It’s the banana rule 1 I’m interested in, bananas my fave but I can’t find many here in the UK (well brands I trust).

It’s frozen banana and the flavor is spot on to a frozen banana. I really liked it but just happened to be one of those things where I was kinda bored with it mid 5lb tub. I get that way with certain flavors across the board though

Nutrex EAA+ Hydration Blood Orange Review




Taste

Blood Orange - Nutrex EAA + Hydration reminds me of Tang when in reference to blood orange. The best way to recognize this product is by taking a small combination of Orange with a hint of citrus in the aftertaste. The density of the orange is paired very well with a lingering raspberry that trickles on your taste buds in the aftertaste. For those who have a sweet tooth or like a luscious orange this is going to be killer for you. If you have ever had Xtend in Blood Orange this is a very good replica of that product. Nutrex is great with their flavoring; they just do not get the recognition they deserve as a sleeper brand in the industry.



Mixability

I used 14-16 oz. of water and 1 scoop to mix EAA+ Hydration. Usually, with a larger scoop size, there is a higher possibility of clumping and particles floating around after shaking. There was no foaming or issues with mixing the product. After 10 shakes this was totally dissolved. Nutrex is very good with mixability across the board on all of their products.

Formula


Per Scoop:
- 8g EAA’s/BCAA Complex (3g Leucine)
- 1g Taurine (Hydration & Recovery)
- 345mg Calci-K (Hydration & Recovery)
- 100mg Raw Coconut Water Concentrate (Hydration)
- 50mg Astragin (Improves Nutrient Uptake)

Nutrex went with a very straightforward BCAA/EAA Complex that contains 6g of BCAA in a 2:1:1 Ratio (3g Leucine) and 2g of EAA’s. The combination of both gives you the best of both worlds and the essential amino acids needed to properly stimulate MPS to the largest degree. Since the body does not synthesize EAA’s we need to get them through food or supplements. The added hydration complex is great for intra-workout when the body is losing minerals and vitamins. I am a huge fan of added astragin, which improved amino acid uptake.


Cost
Currently, you can get Nutrex EAA+ Hydration for $23 with a large metal shaker. That is under $1 a serving for a well-dosed ingredient profile. These retail right around $30 from multiple sources, and I would have no issue paying that with how well the product tastes and what you get out of a very cost effective EAA/BCAA + Hydration formula.

3g of an EAA formula and retails at $45?
Wow... That's beyond expensive for a very low dosed product



You could grab Nutrex EAA+ Hydration, CL Purple Wraath, Dymaize ALL 9 Amino, Primeval EAA MAX, ProSupps HydroBCAA, or Gaspari Proven EAA for a cheaper price and far better formula/product.

I am using the Dymaize ALL 9 Amino Orange Cranberry right now and really enjoying it !! I hear the Nutrex EAA+ Hydration is on sale somewhere my try and find it and pick up the Blood Orange.

For almost half the cost you can get double the amount of aminos in a majority of the choices I listed above.
Just curious what makes you so hesitant to buy that product? Especially at a 3g dose where you will have to double scoop (if not triple) making it 10-15 servings at that price point. Even if you got it for $30 ($15) that is still pretty costly

Sometimes I Just Do Crazy Stuff !!

Must be all that L-Norvaline you intake daily :)
L-norvaline is an ingredient widely used in body building supplements and is promoted as a compound that can boost workouts and aid recovery. Similar compounds have been linked to neurodegenerative diseases, and a study on human cells suggests L-norvaline may also cause damage to brain cells.

It's that Brain Cell thing that gave it away, wasn't it ???

Still Love My True Shred !!

Ghost Coconut Ice Cream Whey Review








Taste



Coconut Ice Cream – Upon opening the tub the aroma is strong enough to fill your room with a toasted coconut presence. The initial taste is a very dense and sweet cream vanilla bean that trickles a luscious aftertaste. The coconut begins to pick up as it hits the back of your taste buds, which I thought would be the other way around. For someone who does not have a high priority for coconut this one really was in my favor with a lighter coconut and stronger vanilla base. One other aspect I noted was the consistency was thicker compared to any of the Ghost Whey Flavors or limited edition Holiday flavors they have put out. This may not be an everyday flavor for the average consumer, but I would be damned to find another Coconut flavored protein that can rival this. Ghost knocked this out of the park, and way beyond my expectations.











Mixability



I mixed this protein shake with 1 Scoop of the Whey and 4-6oz of cashew milk. This mixed with ease. There was no clumping left in the shake as the powder started to mix hitting the liquid.



When mixed in Greek yogurt (plain) I also found it to mix with ease.. There are also no issues when utilized in baking. I find it to help the final product rise very well and make an incredible baked good.



Formula







Per Scoop:

1.5g Fat

4g Carbs

25g Protein



What you have to love about Ghost is the open label on the whey protein. The only other added ingredients are cellulose and xanthan gum + Sucralose as the sweetener. There is nothing hidden in here. With a very basic formula the greatest inclusion is a Ghost Enzyme to help breakdown the whey for those who may have a slight lactose problem. This will settle very easy and sit well for almost all consumers.



14.53g from WPI

13.15g From WPC

2.98g from Hydro WPI





Cost



$39.99 on their main webpage, but you can always find a 20% off coupon. If you have coupons to the 3-letter store you can always get the added discount if you want to shop local. For the price of the open label and flavoring it is more of a unique buy. Think of something you can use on occasion, but maybe a touch too expensive to use on a daily basis. Most people are geared to cost effective whey/whey blends on the market. My best piece of advice is you could half the dosage on the ghost whey and pair with a vanilla protein powder to get the enhancement of the Ghost flavoring.

^ Thanks for the review. I want this but is this another limited edition flavor that is always going to be sold out and never available because it's a limited run?

That CG V3 is clumpy as heck. Mine sat in Dallas for over 24 hours before it finally made it to me. Texas heat and GlycerPump do not go well together.

Interested to hear your thoughts on it, I have yet to try it out

Repp Sports Raze Energy Apollo Review







Taste



Apollo – Going into this flavor I had no idea what to expect. Upon the first sip, you get a strong cherry flavor that hits your taste buds. As the flavor lingers into the aftertaste this starts to enhance as you find a blue raspberry, mango, and subtle strawberry taste. To what exactly this flavor is I can’t put my name on it, but it has a berry melody with other enhancing fruity flavors. I like it because it is not very heavily carbonated and provides a unique flavor that leaves a consumer not knowing what to expect. For some that is a gamble, but Raze is very well known for making a good tasting energy drink. I would rank this top 3 behind Galaxy Burst and Sour Gummy Worms, and highly suggest giving it a try.









Formula





~300mg Caffeine

Hydration Matrix – Taurine & Potassium Citrate

Performance Blend – Betaine (Hydration & Cellular Concentration)

LCLT (Recovery)

BCAA’s (Additional Free Form Amino Acids)

Focus Matrix – L-Tyrosine, Choline, Alpha GPC (Nootropics for cognitive enhancement and mental clarity)





Cost

The prices on REPP Sports Raze energy drink will vary depending on promotion. These retail at $30 for a case of 12. I have seen them drop to 20-30% off from time to time. Therefore it would make them $21-24/Case of 12 cans. When you break down the cost per can it can come out to around $1.75/Can, which is very reasonable on the energy drink market. If you want to wait to try these in a local B&M you may pay upward to $3 a can before investing in cases.







Rankings

1. Sour Gummy Worms

2. Galaxy Burst

3. Apollo

4. Phantom Freeze

5. Grape Bubblegum

6. Guava Mango

7. Watermelon Frost

8. Strawberry Colada



Comparing other energy drinks



If you favor pure flavor à Bang

If you favor a coffee replacement, afternoon get me up, and well-rounded energy drink à C4 Carbonated

If you favor pure energy and focus à Hyde Power Potion

If you favor a strong long lasting energy drink à Repp Sports Raze

If you favor a fully-fledged pre-workout carbonated beverage à C4 Ultimate Carbonated

Depending on size of tub if you remove the scoop and moisture packs then throw in a blender ball you can usually shake that kinda stuff back to powder. Remember to put the moisture packs back in after.
