For my first review I thought it would only be fitting to take a look at a company that I have been working with for quite a while now. AboutTime products have been supplementing my training for about five years. Speaking as someone with a ton of allergies and a very sensitive stomach, it wasn't until I tried AT whey protein that I was finally able to implement a protein product into my regular diet. Every other brand I used routinely gave me nausea and had way too many unnatural names that I could not pronounce in their ingredients. But that is not the case with AT products - they are something far better!
A little background on the brand - TryAboutTime is located in Pittsburgh, PA and was founded in 2008 by Sean Marszalek and Devenee Schumacher. About Time makes high quality whey protein, pre-workout, vegan protein, and healthy on-the-go snacks for the every day athlete, parents, & kids. They pride themselves on creating products that are all natural, non-gmo, gluten free, zero sugar, no artificial sugars, and no growth hormones. You can find most of their top products in many health/nutrition stores now - including whey protein, protein pancake mix, and AUX pre-workout.
This post is going to take a closer look at one of their newest products - AminoHydrate. They have 2 flavors: Orange Cream and Watermelon Lime. Their description of this new product lists 10g amino acids, 7g BCAAs, 2g citrulline, and 1g glutamine, gluten free, & full of electrolytes. The goal of the product is to help reduce protein breakdown, preserve muscle glycogen stores, and keep you more hydrated. I was so excited to try this product, because since I had previously been supplementing my training with separate amino acids and BCAAs from different companies through the years. My main concern with those products was of course quality. When AT announced they would be introducing this product, I was excited because I knew it would be great quality. After opening my package of Watermelon Lime AminoHydrate and throwing some in my shaker bottle, I was excited to discover that the powder mixed well and tasted WAY better than I had even hoped. The flavor is super light, tastes a little more like watermelon than lime, and was super refreshing. I'm excited to add this supplement to my routine and throw out my old, lower quality products I had been using for so long. Thank you AboutTime for putting an awesome new product out there!
