Nutrabio Alpha EAA NY Punch Review










Taste



New York Punch – New York Punch was originally made as an intra-blast flavor exclusive to Natural Body Inc. Due to the high Demand, Nutrabio decided to expand it into Alpha EAA. New York Punch is an exotic tropical fruit punch flavor. What is unique about this flavor is how it plays mind games with you on what flavor is the dominating factor. Your taste buds will be consumed with mango, kiwi, orange, pineapple, and a strong coconut flavor. For those who are not big coconut fans, it may persuade you to look to other flavors on their line. If you enjoy a very diverse flavored product this is the one for you. New York Punch is a flavor you could mix with extra liquid, sip on, and enjoy the diversity of refreshing flavors.






Mixability



I have found that 10-12oz per scoop of Alpha EAA is my sweet spot. 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. Nutrabio is very good with mixability across the board on all of its products even with diverse ingredient profiles.



Formula



Per Scoop:

- 8.2g EAA/BCAA Matrix (Recovery)

- 300mg Alpha GPC (Cognitive Enhancer)

- 50mcg Huperzine A (Cognitive Enhancer)

- 500mg Vita Choline (Cognitive Enhancer)

- 300mg KSM-66 Ashwagandha (Decreases Stress, Improves Mood, Lowers Cortisol)

- 500mg CocoPure Coconut Water Powder (Hydration & Recovery)

- 1.2g Taurine (Hydration & Recovery)

- 50mg Astragin (Improves Nutrient Uptake)



Nutrabio is famous for transparent formulas. This is just another great product that has a very well dosed ingredient profile. This is a massive upgrade from EAA Pure & EAA Energy with added focus, cognitive, and memory aspects. The addition of KSM-66 helps keep cortisol levels down, fights stress, and improves mood.



Ranking of Flavors



Cherry Limeade

  1. Grape
  2. Strawberry Lemon Bomb
  3. New York Punch
  4. Dragon Fruit Candy


Pro’s

- 8.2g EAA/BCAA Blend

- Added Nootropics

- Hydration Complex

if you're not doing a keto diet, give it away again... totally useless
I was thinking it may help burn some extra fat during my Fasted Training.

nah, that's not how BHB salts work. Again, if you were keto, it would be great for fasted training as it would likely give you more energy and focus, but if you're eating carbs (even if fasting) your body is going to use its glycogen stores for energy first.

My understanding of BHB salts from some stuff Paul Carter wrote on his blog is that they actually allow enhanced lipid utilization even for carb-consuming athletes. Real world anecdotes from folks in non-keto calorie-restricted contest prep as well as strength athletes eating everything in sight in a surplus both claimed it increased performance. The gist was actually that while someone in ketosis can get a little boost from salts, it’s actually most effective in populations that normally still preferentially utilize glucose.

I haven’t used them and I am not going to spend the money to experiment for now, but I wouldn’t write them off completely without more personal research and trial.

Was too lazy to write something but this covers it.

You may notice improved performance and maybe a mental boost, but keep in mind it is providing a fuel source to burn and I'd assume would mean you use the ketones rather than your own substrates (if I am making the right assumption, not a huge keto or ketosis guy)?

For performance and endurance I have been tempted to give it a shot, but man they are too expensive currently for me to experiment with.

The Raspberry ketones from SNS work just as good in my experience. Cheap too.

Their extreme pills are pretty great. 1 pill will give you nice energy.

So I definitely am not a Raspberry Ketone expert, but I am pretty sure it isn't a ketone in the same respects or works in the same way as Ketone Salts (not to say it doesn't have its place, just don't think they are interchangeable in that sense).

Now if SNS had a Ketone Salt I may have actually tried some by now and not to get too off topic but the MPA Ketone + PeakO2 (and some other interesting stuff) always intrigued me from an endurance aspect...

I've used both. I get hot, colors are more crisp and it gives nice energy from both. They feel very similar if not the same to me. Not an expert tho, just personal exp.

SNS Immune Support XT is a top notch product to be using this time a year.
Agreed there...I should definitely get me some of that! How I ended up taking care of deathly ill patients with respiratory infections and diseases who relentlessly cough in my face for 12.5 hrs/day for a living is beyond me. I don’t even enjoy it! I guess I didn’t really think that one through..

I’m really good at it though! I walk in the room and instantly put a surgical mask on the patient’s face, which also conveniently helps to contain any unforeseen vomiting episodes. I then proceed to locate their nurse to inform them that I think it’s all anxiety related and that I can’t do anything for them. The nurse goes back in the room with some Ativan and within 10 minutes- everyone is much happier. Then it’s on to the next patient assessment and the pattern repeats itself. It’s exhausting!

Campus Protein Fuel Fruit By The Scoop Review












Taste



Fruit By The Scoop – Fruit By The Scoop is a limited edition fuel flavor that is to replicate Fruit Roll-Ups. Fruit Roll-Ups are a fruit snack that comes in over a dozen flavors. Upon the first sip, there is an array of flavors that will have your taste buds guessing. At first, I picked up fruit punch, and then I found cherry, blue raspberry, lime, and hints of strawberry all congeal together to make a unique flavor. It is very hard to put my finger on exactly what stands out the most, but this is an incredibly refreshing flavor. This is neck and neck all-time with Pink Burst as my all-time top fuel flavor. Due to how unique the flavor is this is one that will truly stand out among the crowd. Since this is a limited edition flavor this will not be available year-round like the permanent flavors are.










Ranking of Fuel Flavors:



Pink Burst (Pink Starburst Replica) // Fruit By The Scoop

Pink Burst (Pink Starburst Replica) // Fruit By The Scoop

White Frost (White Monster Replica)

Sour Watermelon Wedges

Baja Breeze (Taco Bell Drink Replica)

Strawberry Kiwi

Peach Rings

Lemon Drop


** Remember I am not a big lemon or peach fan, but it is very refreshing **


Mixability



CP Fuel mixes with ease. Just touching the water the powder will start to dissolve. I even mixed with a spoon in water and had nothing stick to the cup. I was amazed at how flawless this does mix. In a blender bottle or shaker bottle, you will have no particles floating around or any foaming. This is a huge plus to the product especially if you ware on the go and want to just add it to a water bottle and slug it down.



Formula







Creatine Monohydrate 1.5g - Power, Performance, Endurance, Recovery

Beta-Alanine 1.2g - Endurance, Recovery, Delay Fatigue

L-Citrulline is 1g -- Pump, Nitric Oxide, Prevent Lactic Acid Build Up
Betaine is 750mg -- Power and Performance
L-Arginine is 500mg -- Boosts Nitric Oxide levels
L-Tyrosine is 500mg -- Cognitive Enhancer for Focus and Mood
DL-Choline Bitartrate is 300mg -- Cognitive Enhancer for Focus and Mood
Caffeine is 200mg -- Stimulant
Taurine is 500mg -- Antioxidant, Recovery, Pumps

L-Norvaline 120mg - Keeps nitric oxide levels high

Huperzine A 2.5mg - Nootropic for mood, energy, and cognitive enhancement



Pros



- Around 40-50/Cents a Serving

- Cost-Effective Energy Drink Replacement

- Gives a long=lasting jolt of energy.

- Flavoring is top of the line

This was my thought as well but I have not researched them heavily. Just assumed that in the same way that people consuming MCT Oil prior to training supplied faster energy and showed more ketones in urine was due to it having immediate access the the lipids instead of having to wait on actual lypolysis. However that being the case when a decent amount of energy is supplied by ketones it helps set the pathway for lipolysis.

On the same page. I viewed this almost as an evolution or next step from how people use MCT oil so seems maybe I was on the right track...

I’m going to have to accept that I don’t get on with Nootropics. Infinite Brain tastes great but I’m just getting Sweet FA from it. The only upside is that it isn’t sending me to sleep like Focus XT & Brainwash.

Brainwash as the sole product I have found is just a bit relaxed for my tastes. Brainwash stacked with a bit more caffeine or at half dose with a half dose of another preWO is phenomenal. It combos with other stims incredibly.

Was lucky enough to try the new Fuel Fruit by the scoop. @The Solution hooked me up big time. Pretty sure most of y’all know about Fuel by now, but in a nutshell it’s an awesome energy drink/coffee replacement. I used to spend a ton on coffee and energy drinks. Well bob introduced me to fuel way back and at the deals you can find, as low as 40 cents a scoop I’ve saved a ton since. Plus I think they do a killer job with the flavoring.

The newest flavor is fruit by the scoop. If you remember what fruit roll ups tasted like, you’ll instantly find that comparison here. The predominant flavor I felt was cherry. Then there’s a berry mix swirling around, peaking in and around that cherry groove. Then as you’re done, each sip gives you a nice smooth strawberry flavor as a finisher/aftertaste. Not a huge strawberry fan as many of you prob recall, but this strawberry is not artificial and it’s subtle and super smooth.

I’ve had all the flavors except for peach rings and strawberry kiwi. Here’s my rankings:
1. Fruit By The Scoop
2. Pink Burst
3. Lemon Drop
4. White Frost
5. Baja Breeze
6. Sour Watermelon
7. Jungle juice

CP FUEL: Fruit by the scoop

@The Solution was kind enough to send me a sample.

Mixes very easy like the other FUEL's.

This flavor is hard to pinpoint. Definitely a nice slight tang to it.

I'm getting a raspberry/ blueberry with a light tangy strawberry / purple grape aftertaste. I have heard it taste like a fruit roll up. I have seen the grandbaby's eating them but have never tried one.

This is non-carbonated.

The energy is the same as the other Fuel. Nice inexpensive tasty lift.

I workout in the evenings and find myself using 1.5 scoops of FUEL 30 min prior to workout. Plus I Can still get to bed 3-4 hours after consuming.

I have 4 tubs of this now. Everytime a new flavor comes out I have to buy a tub.

I need to start using this instead of that afternoon coffee. Problem is i'm use to consuming coffee all day. Im one of those that has his own coffee pot in his office.

Cookies & Cream Peanut Butter Outright Bar










Taste



Cookies & Cream Peanut Butter - The peanut butter base of the bar is exactly the same from the Outright Bar line that runs across a variety of flavors. The creaminess and richness of the peanut butter holds up with the addition of cookies and cream. The cookies and cream addition is in a stronger ratio of cream to cookie. The cream filling from a sandwich cookie holds its ground with the bold peanut butter base, but the cookie is subtle in the aftertaste. Just like Marc’s Cookies & Cream MTS whey both flavors are present, but when condensed into the Outright bar I personally found more white cream chunks than cookie chunks. Marc took two of my favorite things and put them into a healthy functional food snack. This new addition goes right to the top of my all time favorites behind the almond butter bars, which I prefer over peanut butter.






Texture

The texture of the bars correlates with a soft cookie. They are a bit firm on the outside but you can puncture them with your finger. The middle is soft, chewy, and melts in your mouth. I have not tried putting them in a microwave, but I would imagine it would melt the chocolate chips. This is a bar that doesn't need to have anything done to it as the texture is just right and is easy to chew.






Macros





Calories ~ 290

Fat ~ 15g

Affordably priced at $24.99 for a box of 12 ($2.08 per bar) or Cheaper on sale.

Whole food based snack bar

Digest easy and don't leave any bloat (like sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners may do)

Impressive taste and texture that just melts in your mouth (even out of the wrapper)

Unique balance ratio of Carbs, Protein and fats

Thanks to @The Solution for hooking me up with a sample of the newest FUEL flavor "Fruit by the Scoop" (think Fruit by the Foot... ahhh, childhood nostalgia!)

Shouldn't be a surprise at this point, but flavor wise it's an absolute home run. The berry flavor stood out more than anything. It mixes fantastic (as usual). . Seriously though, some of the best tasting stuff out there. Enjoyed this sample enough to hop on the FUEL Pick 2 Stack (awesome value). Honestly can't say which flavor I like best between this, Pink Burst & Peach Rings... they're all so damn good. Luckily, I don't have to choose when I can just have them all. Thanks again Bob!

How do you get the price down to $32? Cheapest I could see pre-shipping was 37.99 with two pack and then Instagram code.
