Generous supply of powder with a scoop. No clumping.
Used it for a month or more and really never felt any benefits to its use, primarily as a gym supplement.
Although this Betaine came in a convenient tub, I didn’t realize when I got it that it had calcium silicate added. Calcium silicate is an anti-caking agent, which means it keeps the powder from clumping together. Most people wouldn’t give this a second look, but it is extremely important. Most health and fitness supplements have so many fillers, artificial sweeteners, colors, stabilizers, etc added. None of that is good for us, and definitely shouldn’t be in our “fitness” supplements. I have a lot of experience with unflavored fitness powders. I’ve bought in 1/2 kg+ quantities for years and mixed my own preworkouts together ever since. For about $100-$150 I get a years worth of preworkout with daily use.. and it’s healthier. The whole reason I started using unflavored powders was because it’s healthier AND a heck of a lot cheaper. Anything other than the pure, unadulterated performance-enhancing chemical not only increases the cost, but it affects our bodies. The anti-caking ability of calcium silicate is just as good as adding 2% of the total weight in rice and blending it up. Dry rice is a natural anti caking agent. If you’re thinking, “rice in my pre-workout powder?” Don’t worry. I’ve done this for years. We just scoop the powder into a blate pape and swallow that. They’re edible film pouches, like a big, soft capsule but it forms to your throat when swallowing. I can take 10-12g of pre-workout powder in one square and not taste anything. So for this betaine, although I do prefer a tub, any chemical agents added to it only take away from the entire point of buying unflavored, single ingredient powder. Normal betaine powder with a little dry rice is healthier and cheaper. No quarrels with the brand itself, just the added chemicals. For that reason, I won’t be buying Nutricost’s Betaine again, unless they get rid of the unnecessary calcium silicate.
You get a lot for the money and it does it’s job.
I mix this with other ingredients that's found in Legion's Pulse preworkout. I find that it's a cheaper option to buy the ingredients separately and mix them together on my own with my caffeine of choice, black coffee >:)
