Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeepinshell Liked it better before "New and Improved" came out
I absolutely LOVED this product before they changed it. When used with a hand blender (immersion blender) and very cold water as instructed (12 oz water, 2 scoops), it made a frothy delicious drink that I sooo looked forward to after a hard workout. And I believe it truly did help with reducing the muscle soreness, and helping me feel better almost immediately.
However, the "New and Improved" drink, certainly doesn't taste as smooth and as good as it once did. I heard that there were people complaining about the fructose in it, that it was bad for you. Fructose is found in fruit, a naturally occuring sugar; don't confuse this for high fructose corn syrup: not the same thing folks! So, the "new and improved" version has replaced fructose with stevia, a sweetener made from the stevia plant. Now, there is an awful aftertaste that wasn't there before, and the taste isn't as smooth and yummy as it was.
PLEASE, please, please consider offering both versions for people to choose from. The prior one with fructose and NO stevia, and the "new and improved" one with the stevia. I will choose the older one without stevia - much better and more satisfying. I won't buy anymore of the new one, don't like the taste anymore. Will just drink chocolate milk if I have to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dorkster compared to other supplements out there, this is the only one that i look forward to after a workout. It makes you feel great after a hard workout and gives you the energy you need to do other things later on the day. Just put some ice with to make it extra cold, it'll be more enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nurs05 great product
I love this stuff. If I don't drink it after my workout I am definitely sore the next day, but if taken in the 1st hour after working out it prevents all my muscle aches the next day allowing me to work out just as hard each and every day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RN Recommended but Expensive!
Love P90X, P90X+, One on One but this drink is Expensive! I like this drink, tasty, effective but I started purchasing Optimum Nutrition's 2:1:1 Recovery and I order if from Netrition for $30, $5 shipping for any size order, and one tub lasts well beyond 30 days. You also get a free item (t-shirt-shaker bottle-body fat caliper, etc..) for orders over $75. I would probably prefer P90X Results and Recovery because I can use it while working out and ON 2:1:1 is a shake but I will not pay that much monthly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tarzan Love it, love it, love...it!
This product is as hard core as P90X, it delivers everything your body need's and more. If you truly want a treat after your work out, add ice and blend into a smoothie! I've tried a lot of recovery drinks and this is my #1 pick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dookie GREAT FOR SORENESS PREVENTION
This is truely a great product! The days I use it I'm not sore the next, but if I dont drink it after a hard-core workout, I'll be sore. The taste is great, especially since it's a citrus refreshing taste. Sure, it's a little grainy, but that doesnt matter when it serves its purpose for muscle repair and growth. I love this stuff!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deesfit I love It and will recommed this product
This product taste very good, (maybe because I like orange flavor). The first time I tried it I couldn't believe how it worked. I drank it after my workout, and another day during the workout, and the results was great. Its unbelievable how something that taste so great can work so well, Im just a little confused about how to measure it because it says two scoops to 12oz of water, seems like a lot of mix for such little amount of water. I thought that was a lot until I mixed it in my blender (recommended) which came out like a smoothie, mixing it is a cup with a spoon just doesn't work, it gets lumpy. Blend it with some water, ice and a banana and you'll love it, I actually think it taste better than Shakeology.
