HYDRAMINO Reviews by Athletes

PNBA PRO Cindy Sampson says:

"Amazing flavor! I have tried other powdered amino products and prefer the taste on this one. I was impressed with how I was able to lose weight and gain muscle while taking Hydramino. I would definitely recommend this to friends."

IFPA PRO Champion Philip Ricardo Jr says:

"I have been using the Hydramino for 2 straight weeks now and here is my honest assessment:

The taste of Hydramino is excellent...when you are dieting for a contest or just need something sweet for your taste buds it does the trick and keeps a nice tasting Blue Raspberry taste in your mouth throughout the workout.

Also, Hydramino mixes very well...no clumps or excessive residue. I felt that taking the Hydramino allowed me to have a little extra energy during the end of my workouts compared to before...even when taking a preworkout drink! I used to feel a little empty the last 15-20 minutes of my weight training sessions and this helped alleviate some fatigue during that time. I also feel like I recover quicker after training...I feel tight and sore immediately after the workout but I dont have the same next day tightness as I did in the past.

The only negative feedback I can give is that at times I found myself tasting a little peanuty flavoring if I burped during the workout (sounds a little gross) but thats not a show stopper for me with this product. If its effective, and it has been for me, then a little peanut burping wont prevent me from taking the product.

I would definitely recommend anyone who trains hard and is preparing for competition or just needs a little extra endurance and recovery during and after your workout to try Hydramino."

IFPA/NGA Pro Melissa Fischer says:

"I love it! It's by far the best mixing BCAA's I've had. I use a little more than a scoop in a gallon of water everyday, and all I need to do is give the jug a few shakes and It's instantly mixed. The flavor is great. Not too sweet, but just enough flavor to get me through my couple of gallons of water a day. In addition I mix it with my training shakes and I mix it with a strawberry flavored protein powder. It's like a fruit smoothie."

WNBF Natural PRO Francisco Montealegre says:

"Taste: I requested the blue raspberry flavor of hydramino for my review and it was very good. I mixed 2 scoops with about 30oz of water and I definitely enjoyed it. Really nice taste overall.

Mixability: Hydramino mixed very well for a BCAA product. I had some small leftovers at the bottom of my shaker but that didn’t bothers me at all. As a matter of fact I was expecting it because as far as I know BCAAs don’t have a natural tendency to dissolve well with water. To solve this I added a little more water once I drink it down about a third, but for the most part it all stays mixed in.

Value: As far as value is concern, 90 serving will cost you $48.99. This is not an inexpensive product but definitely is a little bit less expensive than its competition. Little pricey for sure, but for the effectiveness of the BCAAs and what you’re getting from it as far as improved recovery, muscle protein synthesis support etc it's totally worth it in my opinion.

Effectiveness: The ingredient profile is what attracted me to test this product in the first place. Like I stated before, with a 2:1:1 Ratio,7000mg of BCAAs per serving plus electrolytes and glutamine we can’t go wrong with this supplement. As they say “Branch chain aminos are the building blocks of muscle”

Overall: Great product overall, I will definitely use it again."

Tim Jorgenson says:

"I got a jug of this and wanted to use the entire thing before posting.

This stuff is now my permanent replacement! It has the 2:1:1 ratio that has been researched so I know I'm getting what I want.  And is priced right.  I have used a few other sale BCAAs before and was never happy.

Taste: Perfect, not too sweet and really quite right. Has a great flavor profile.

Mixability: No problems, mixes instantly and has no floating residue like some others. I even one time put it in my gallon jug and got side tracked. When I came back a few minutes later it was almost completely dissolved, no shaking. When it is put in it starts to sink and is dissolved before it hits the bottom of my jug.

I really can't wait to try the other flavors.  The other brands original grape was my favorite and I'm sure to not be disappointed by this one!"

Natural Bodybuilding Coach Cliff Wilson says:

"This is a great BCAA product! It has a 2:1:1 ratio of leucine: isoleucine: valine, which has been shown to be the most effective ratio for muscle growth. It is also a great price for a product that is extremely effective. The mixability was far superior to many other BCAA products that I have tried and the grape and watermelon flavors were excellent. They weren't too sweet or too bitter, just right. I was very pleased and can't wait to try the other flavors."

Flavor: Grape

I really like this product. I had been using Modern BCAA for a couple of months and tried this after a recommendation from Shawn at M&S. The taste really is the best I have ever tasted in ANY supplement! I could drink this stuff all day, it taste better than kool aid! I also noticed there wasn't as any bits in the bottom when I finished it off. As far as results, it's difficult to tell whether there was a difference between modern bcaa and hydramino. I can definitely notice the difference between BCAAs and water, but between these 2 it was negligible. On last comment is the price, cheaper than pretty much any product which is a bonus. Great product overall, will be using again.

Flavor: Blue Raspberry

This product was recommended to me, as I usually use Dymatize Recoup, but the large tubs were recently discontinued. I use a lot of BCAAs and Hydramino has a very similar profile to Recoup. The biggest complaint I have about this product is the mingy taste - it's really quite awful - there is a salty flavour, as well as a really strong aspartame aftertaste. I'm a HUGE fan of the Recoup in Blue Raspberry, so thought I'd give this one a go. I will, however, be going back to my Recoup - even if I now have to buy smaller tubs - after I'm finished the Hydramino.

Flavor: Watermelon

Overall, I can't give it all 10's for 2 reasons: 1) because I've only tried the one flavor and 2) this is the first BCAA Product I've used, so I have no comparison.

However, I gave this a shot and I'm midway through my 3rd container. I've only tried Watermelon, and while it tastes good, I wouldn't say it tastes like watermelon. It tastes more like that cheap pink bubble gum you'd get on Halloween... which, again, tastes really good to me.

I've never used BCAA's as a separate supplement outside of the BCAA's my protein shakes already contain... but after 2.5 containers, I've noticed a HUGE improvement in recovery (about a half day) and HUGE progression (that one extra rep is easy to get) in my lifts.

Terrific.

Love this product! Switched over from modern bcaa because the price was better, but once I started taking it I realized that everything is much better. Better taste, better mixing, 2-1-1 bcaas. There's not a better bcaa product out there right now IMHO. Well recommended.

Flavor: Blue Raspberry

Posting a review of the Blue Raspberry flavor. I have used xtend for years and thought I'd give this a shot because I know M&S and the price was cheaper. First off, I was pretty impressed with how well the powder mixed in. It didn't leave any residue at all, and there was no froth on top (the classic BCAA mo!). I mix my BCAAs with ice and water, and it only took a dozen or so shakes to mix it completely. Second, the taste. Personally, it was too sweet for my liking. I found I had to add another 2 oz of water to get it to where I was happy with it. That's about it, I docked it half a star for the sweetness thing, but all round this is an excellent product and a price below that of other similar products around. I have already bought the 2 other flavors and looking forward to giving them a shot!

Flavor: Grape

I have taken BCAAs during my workout religiously for years and tried almost every supp out there. I can honestly say that this Hydramino is the best so far easily! The taste is unbeatable by any other brand that I have tried, the powder is really light and fluffy and mixes easily into liquid without any froth or clumps. I have only tried the grape so far, but will definitely be trying both of the other flavors on my next order.

Flavor: Watermelon

I noticed a real difference in recovery times when I was using this product. Muscle soreness went down, and my general recovery improved by about a day. THis really helped my when getting lean for a show when I was doing weight training and cardio pretty much every day. I used the watermelon flavor, and the taste was fantastic - just like real watermelon, and not too sweet either. I have used other products when prepping before and this one mixed the best and easily tasted the best. Will definitely keep using on this prep and in future.

Top notch BCAA product...the best I have tasted easily, and mixes better as well. You can tell as soon as you open it because the powder is much finer than the others. I have only tried the grape so far, and it was extremely good.

I have been a used of these intra workout drinks for years, they have tons of scientific backing and make a real world difference to muscle growth. Hydramino is the best I have come across so far, given 10/10 for taste and overall.

Will be posting further reviews after trying the other 2 flavors
