    There was a (recent?) study that basicly said it was worthless.

    Ill try to find the link but Im sure one of the experts will link it first.

    They sell the stuff and dont endorse its effectiveness... that might say something.

    it was only proven to help recovery and such when used intraveinously, so unless you plan on hooking up an iv after a workout skip it.

    The guy at the gym told me it helps repair muscles faster/better or something.....

    I like it because it makes my protein shakes really thick :wiggle:.
