I'm reviewing the Berry Burst flavour. I followed the directions on the packet accordingly. However, the amount of water in the solution wasn't the problem, it was purely the taste. The taste of the Berry Burst flavour was that of what you would expect from a cheap berry flavoured fluoride. I found that the taste of this supplement left a distasteful aftertaste in my mouth and a distasteful look on my face, as I struggled through the terrible mixture. When considering how often you take this supplement, the poor taste of the supplement quickly makes the job of drinking the substance a major chore! This is not what you want in a supplement, as far as taste goes. Therefore, I award Vassive-EA8 berry burst flavour a 2/10 for taste.
I used a sample packet of ON Vassive-EA8. However, whether sample packet or scoop, the same directions apply. Just add a sample packet/scoop to the recommended amount of water and mix it in. Unfortunately, I found that Vassive-EA8 had very poor mixability, just as indicated on the label. After pouring the substance into water and mixing it, I found that most of the mixture ended up settling in the bottom of the drink. Now, it's not uncommon for a bit of the supplement to end up in the bottom. However, with Vassive-EA8 I found that most of the supplement was in the bottom, and this was not good at all. Therefore, in order to reap the benefits of the supplement, rather than drinking flavoured water, you must shake and drink immediately while the supplement is still floating around, before it hit's the bottom. As far as I'm concerned, that is a lot of effort just to down a supplement! Drinking a supplement should be enjoyable, not a task. As you can imagine, the crystallized ingredients that were floating around cause the texture of the mixture to be rough and gritty. Therefore, for mixability/texture, I award Vassive-EA8 a 2/10 for mixability/texture.
As you can imagine, with any supplement that is simply just a blend of different amino acids, it is difficult to access effectiveness, especially when using it short term (1 sample packet). The reason is, unlike creatine and pre-workout amplifiers there is no immediately noticeable effect. One of the purposes of amino acids is to get the amino-rich aspects of milk, meat, fish, and poultry without the calories or any of the fat, sodium, and cholesterol. However, as I said above there is no immediate effect that is noticed, therefore, there is very little to be noted.
It should be noted that Optimum Nutrition has a respectable line of supplements and perhaps one of the best overall proteins on the market! As far as effectiveness goes, I would expect that in the long run, I would be pleased with the results Vassive-EA8 provided. However, since I only used it short term, I can do nothing more than speculate about what might have been. As far as the taste of Vassive-EA8 Berry Burst goes, I was disgusted and as far as I'm concerned, Vassive-EA8's mixability/texture was poor at best. Therefore I'm forced to award Vassive-EA8 a 2/10 for an overall review.
