So, I've been wanting to review this for some time, I guess I'll do it now.
I bought this about 2 months ago after reading other reviews and figured for $15 +/- why not. I picked it up and couldn't wait to give it a shot. I thought this would be a great post workout mix. I also figured with it's combination of ingredients, creatine, dextrose, AAKG, taurine, bcaas, etc, it could be a good pre workout mix too. So, I decided to use it for both pre workout and post workout.
Use, I decided then to take it pre and post workout on workout days, 3-4 days a week. On my non lifting days, I would just use 5g creatine mono(creapure) in the AM. Due to my amazing reaction to White Flood, I will be stopping the pre workout dose of this and just using it post workout.
Taste: 7/10 (I always read this part of reviews and think who gives a $hit, it's a supplement, not a meal)I liked it, not phenomenal, not terrible. Pretty sweet. I mixed it with choc whey and a banana, it went down smooth and sugary.
Effectiveness: 9/10 I did get a good pump off of it. Of course I always get a decent pump at the gym, but this definitely gave it a boost imo. More importantly is the size gain. I put on 14 lbs between Thanksgiving and New Years. From 185 to 198. Some of that was fat, I attribute to my overeating(pies, and all the other holiday junk). I have since lost 7 lbs down to 191. I remain at the same body fat % I did prior to starting creatine/Body Fortress. So, basically it was a 6 lb muscle/muscle water retention gain in about a month. But, it's not just muscle water gain either. My lifts have gone up across the board, and I am noticeably more muscular. I look forward to cutting in another month and seeing what happens.
Price: 15/10 Unbeatable. Seriously. For the budget restricted like me, this is a great match up.
If you are curious, I would recommend this for sure. Why not, what do you have to lose! It's pennies on the dollar compared to so many other similar products. Even if you were to buy all these items(BCAA, Taurine, Creatine, AAKG, dextrose, etc) seperately and make your own mix, I still don't think it'd be as cheap.
