Core ABC Lemon Lime Sherbet Strikes for the Heat of Summer

Anyone familiar with Doug Miller knows that he’s a true patriot. It’s no surprise, then, that we see a burst of creative energy from him around the 4th of July every year. For Independence Day 2022 we saw his brand ‘Merica Labz come out with a new Zero Dark Cherry BOOM pre workout flavor. But wait, there’s more from Crush It Holdings:

A perfect summer BCAA flavor, but we think it can become a wintertime “daily driver” too — it’s Core ABC Lemon Lime Sherbet!

It’s A Great Summer For Lemon Lime Sherbet

Now we have his original brand, Core Nutritionals, coming out with a Lemon Lime Sherbet flavor for their premium branched chain amino acid (BCAA) supplement, Core ABC!

What better way to recover from your heart-pounding workout in the sweltering heat than an iced glass of BCAAs with intense citrus flavor?

The Core Nutritionals Lemon Lime Sherbet

We love this flavor because it isn’t too thick – the consistency of the product when mixed with water remains light and airy, just like a fine sherbet would really taste.

Definitely more lime than lemon in this flavor, which is exactly how we think it should be: the more delicate notes up front, with the delicious tangy bite of the lemon in the background.

Core ABC: A Primer

Core ABC Lemon Lime Sherbet

We call Core ABC a “premium” BCAA supplement because unlike most BCAA supplements, it’s not just BCAAs. Core Nutritionals realized that since BCAA supplements are used as a pre workout or intra workout supplement 99% of the time, the function of a BCAA stack could be improved by adding in some endurance-boosting ingredients: and that’s exactly what Core Nutritionals did.

Because of its endurance-boosting properties, Core ABC is an awesome supplement to use on cardio day in particular.

Why BCAAs?

Long story short, the branched chain amino acids (so named because of their tree-like chemical structure) leucine, isoleucine, and valine are possessed of anti-catabolic and endurance-boosting properties. The most common way to use BCAAs is as an additive pre workout supplement that prevents your muscles from being excessively damaged by an intense workout.

Of course, some people mix up some BCAA powder and drink it during their workout, which has pretty much the same effect: which route you choose really comes down to personal preference.

Just understand that BCAAs alone are not enough to build new muscle: for that you do need a greater quantity of protein from food or supplements.

Core ABC Ingredients

For a full ingredient analysis of Core ABC from Core Nutritionals, read our review of last year’s Core ABC flavor, Patriot Pop, at Core ABC Patriot Pop: Boost Your Workout with a Bomb.

Core ABC Lemon Lime Sherbet Ingredients

If you don’t feel like reading all that, here’s a brief review of what these ingredients are and how they work:

  • Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) – 10 grams: anti-catabolic, anti-fatigue. Leucine, the most abundant BCAA in the mix, increases muscle protein synthesis by activating mTOR. Valine is important as the immediate precursor to L-BAIBA, a hormone-like compound that helps our body adapt to exercise.
  • L-Glutamine – 2.5 grams: boosts endurance, speeds up recovery, reduces soreness. Improves gut health and possibly immunity.
  • Beta-Alanine – 2.5 grams: Boosts endurance by helping clear your muscles of lactic acid, a byproduct of both aerobic (low intensity) but mostly anaerobic (high intensity) metabolism that causes neuromuscular fatigue when it builds up.
  • Citrulline malate – 2.5 grams: a potent nitric oxide booster. By causing NO-mediated vasodilation, citrulline can reduce fatigue and soreness while slightly increasing athletic performance.

    Also worth noting: Lemon Lime Sherbet first came out in the Core FURY pre-workout supplement.

    Core Nutritionals does a great job with their flavoring, and they also do a great job with seasonality. This is exactly the kind of flavor system you want to see in the summer, and that’s when Miller and team delivered. This is especially true in the scorching hot, heat wave summer of 2022.

    Of course, no offense to you lemon-lime drinkers in the winter, but it’s just not the same then. Now’s the time to test out the flavor system with some extra ice, and once you do, you’ll probably agree that this could easily serve as a daily driver to keep the aminos flowing, even in the winter.
