Action Nutrition BCAA Review
Pineapple Strawberry Cooler – The name is very true to the label. The pineapple is the dominant flavor with the strawberry being a mere aftertaste. The best part about the amino acid product is how pure the flavoring is. Action Nutrition is a brand that offers great-tasting products and that is what you get. The ratio of pineapple to strawberry is an 80/20 – 70/30 mixture. If you enjoy a dense pineapple flavored product this will be your cup of tea. It is hard to pick up the strawberry, which is my only nitpick, as I would like an equal ratio of flavors. That way the user would get the best of both worlds instead of one flavor overpowering the other. Overall I very pleased and will have no issue sipping on this product.
Action Nutrition BCAA is a very fine and thin powder. Upon touching the water the product started to mix. After a few shakes, I noticed there was a touch of foam that dispersed right away. There should be no issue mixing this even with a spoon due to the nature of the powder. Some nights I will mix my BCAA before I go to bed when I train first thing in the morning, and when I woke up there was no clumps or particles in my shaker cup.
