Mini Review: Redcon1 Grunt

We're a huge fan of supplementing Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) intra-workout at Monster Supplements. Unlike BCAAs which only contain 3 of the 9 total essential aminos, EAA products contain a full spectrum. Amino acids rarely work in isolation and can best perform their roles when all are present in sufficient amounts, not just the 3 most commonly associated with muscle repair and growth (leucine, iso-leucine, valine).

A real standout product for me among the options available is Grunt by American brand Redon1. A supplement company with an incredibly strong line up of products, well dosed and using the most up to date ingredients, we would expect nothing short of amazing. And they have certainly delivered here.

No frills here, Grunt provides the 9 essential amino acids with no added extras. If, like me, you have a pretty complex intra-workout drink, this makes it ideal to stack with other simple supplements (some of my favorites include cyclic dextrin, creatine and electrolytes).

I went for the Pineapple Banana flavour, and will be returning for Tiger's Blood in future (for those who don't know, this is a combination of watermelon, strawberry and coconut). This was delicious! Both aspects of the flavour held their own, it would be easy to identify the flavour from taste test alone. The powder mixed very easily (I use a water jug, not a shaker, and had no issues). The flavour wasn't diluted in a large jug of water either which surprised me.

10/10 - BIG fan of this. Redcon1 have gained a customer for life!
