Optimum Nutrition – Amino Energy – Product Overview

The Flagship Amino Energy blend from Optimum literally set the stage for what is now the Energy + Amino + (insert specialty) amazingly flavored category in this industry. While aminos were well set in gear and intraworkouts by Scivation it was this added energy that merged the aminos and the preworkout into one idea. Either all day energy sipping on this type of formula or double or triple a dose and use it as your minimalist preworkout alternative.

The nice thing was that you could replace your morning caffeine fix with an anabolic jolt or just sip on it all day in order to not remember how miserable you are at work. Let’s skip adding the vodka to it though till the weekend!

With an array of amazing flavors and a multitude of sizes available, Amino Energy is definitely the most popular kid on the block, especially since it covers the entire EAA range plus Taurine and Beta Alanine. They also sneak in some Green Tea and Green Coffee Bean Extract to further round out the profile of Amino Energy.
