Cytosport Monster Amino features a 6:1:1 BCAA ratio. This mean that Leucine (also known as the anabolic trigger due to it's ability assist in muscle protein synthesis) is present in higher amounts than other BCAA's. While the optimal BCAA ratio is unknown, this ratio does mean that you are getting more of this all important amino acid. In addition, Monster Amino features a whopping 6g of BCAA's per serving! Most amino acid products contain 5g or less. But Monster Amino is not just another BCAA product. The ingredient label shows an additional 1g of Citrulline to enhance blood flow, and 18 total amino acids in it's profile.

Very happy with the product. Love the grape!!
This product isn't the worst I've had but it isn't exactly the best either. The taste is a little chalky but no real aftertaste.
Ok before I give my two sense, I will explain who I am. I have 4 sports science certifications through the ISSA and in addition a CEU in BCAAs. I am getting a degrees in exercise science. I also do amateur bodybuilding competitions. This is a good solid product with the science that checks out. I will say that the Muscletech Performance series aminos may rival these, but for this price one can't go wrong. I will also say that I do NOT buy supplements for taste, but these do happen to be pretty delicious. I have had all flavors. Thanks guys! Hope I helped.
