Everyday Amino from Purus Labs is a simple BCAA product that also includes Fructooligosaccharide, which is a natural sweetener which acts as a prebiotic. You get 1g of that and the recommended daily intake is around 4g. You are getting 3.5g of BCAA per serving. The ratio you are getting is 5:1:1 which is unique compared to the well studied and researched 2:1:1 ratio. The 5:1:1 puts the emphasis on Leucine, which is the most important of the three BCAA as it jump starts protein synthesis. However, there is research that shows that the 2:1:1 ratio is the best post-workout because the three BCAA working together proves to be most effective. On top of that, Leucine is the "cheapest" of the three BCAAs so you always want to be aware of that when comparing a higher ration BCAA price to a 2:1:1 ratio. Outside of post workout, for everyday use, higher amounts of Leucine may be beneficial.

Effectiveness with BCAA products is typically judged on the post-workout muscle recovery effect. Because I don’t use this post-workout, and more of an everyday amino product (like the name says) I don’t want to judge it on that. In terms of providing essential amino acids then this is a good product for that. Due to that it is hard to judge the overall effectiveness of this product. With the use of the prebiotic and the continual use amino profile I feel that it does contribute to your overall recovery.

Flavor: Fresh Mango Tangerine
I am a huge fan of mango and tangerine so I was excited to try this. I really liked it. My only negative feedback on it was that it is almost "too sweet" like a Sweettart. It was refreshing but I don't want to drink more than two drinks per day of this.

This mixed very well. I would say that I have had some BCAA products that have mixed better and many that have mixed worst. There was some residue left over after drinking but nothing another splash of water can't fix.

Value on a BCAA, to me, is based on how many grams of BCAA do you get per dollar. For Everyday Amino you are getting 105g of BCAA at $20. This is one the cheaper side for amino products. You are also getting less grams of BCAAs because of that. Overall I feel like the value is there, especially for an amino product in which you sip throughout your day and not directly post workout. I have seen other BCAA products give you 3x the amount of BCAAs for only about $7 more. It is important to note that you are getting the prebiotic in this as well to help with digestion. That does make it more valuable.
