Customer Ratings & Reviews

Superior Amino 2222 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Who knows if it works?? I am the swallower of many daily vitamins and supplements. Never! I have I seen such a large pill. I literally almost choked trying to get it down. Sadly, only a life-saving surrum would warrant my desire to try a pill this size ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from superior amino 2222 This is the best amino supplement I have found but because of the size of the pill I have to cut it up into smaller pieces which is no problem at all to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product I take these daily. Unable to do strenuous exercise do to an operation, I have found they make short periods of exercise more productive and seemed to contribute to my general well being. Although large, I found them easy to swallow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Energiser I have been taking amino acids for muscle building for years. I tried Optimum Nutrition brand. This product contains high quantiites of essential aminos often not found in other brands. It is also very good value. 2 caps before training gives noticeable muscle pump and two caps after training noticeably improves recovery and muscle growth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for All, Vegan or Not I am a strict vegetarian; although, complete protein comes from animal products. This does contain whey. My blood panel reading shows normal protein levels while I eat no meat or fish; and, eat no cheese or drink milk. An amino Acid pill(s) does the trick for me. I'm not a bodybuilder, just health conscious.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to swallow These pills are very large and hard to swallow. Perhaps if they were in liquid capsule form they would be easier to swallow. I would not recommend these for this reason only.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mega-pills! The pills in this bottle are gigantic! When I first got these, I swallowed 1 pill, and that frightened me, because I was worried I wasn't going to be able to get the pill down. Now just so you know, this review is not all negative, because I have some positive things to say. Before I go any further, I want so say there is another way to take these pills without just taking them straight. I believe they are compressed-powder pills, so they can be pulverized in a blender, or what I have done is a mortar and pestle, where I cut the pills into smaller pieces with a knife on a cutting board with a paper towel to assist stopping the pills turning into a missle across the table, and then crushing them. Also, if you dare, I have done a much simpler but more time-consuming method for diminishing the size of these pills. Put the pills in some water and let them soak for a while. I would not reccommend hot water, which would speed up the process, but also could possibly damage the aminos in the pills. Some things to consider is, the amino acid complex is in my opinion, a very comprehensive collection of amino acids. The price of these pills is excellent. Also these amino acids also come with enzymes, a nice suprise in my opinion. I suggest comparing the price and pill content to what you would get in the Optimum Nutrition brand and compare it with others. Final thoughts: If you want a lot of pills for the money that have a lot of amino acids,with enzymes, here is a brand to consider. If the thought of taking mega-pills does not interest you, but you do not mind crushing them or pulverizing them, here are your pills. However, if you do not like, or cannot take mega-pills, and you do not want to take the time to make them consumable, then try something else. I am personally happy with the cost-to-pill ratio, and I don't mind crushing or liquifying those pills on a regular basis enough to stop taking them.I hope that you choose what works for you!
