I absolutely LOVE these BCAAs, and they have an amazing hydrating factor. I always get dehydrated really fast because I don't drink as much water as I should. It usually leads me to have an energy decrease throughout the day so this helps me cancel that out. I do 1 scoop with about 16 oz of water during my workout and I make it all the way without feeling depleted! On hotter day after my workout, I'll drink another half scoop with some more water to keep me feeling good.
