1.) How's the taste? Even though it's orange flavor, does it mask all the ingredients?
2.) More importantly,how does it stack up with other sports related vitamin mixes?
An example would be VitaJym by Jim Stoppani where he omits Zinc as he says it interferes with amino acid and copper uptake; Calcium interferes with zinc, iron and manganese absorption; and Magnesium as it interferes with manganese absorption as well as with calcium absorption. He lists more points here at http://jymsupplementscience... and also lists his references at the bottom of the page. I have always been a big fan of Animal, but Stoppani brings the science behind his product and its hard to argue these points. An all powder multi maybe with greens or reds would be amazing, but it needs to be done correctly and I wonder how the Animal Pak Powder stacks up in your eyes, especially to VitaJym, even though its in pill form.
Always love your articles, and even more so the hands on reviews here and on youtube!
