It’s not often times I get products to review on my blog. It might because I’m blunt, I use vulgar or if I don’t really feel like something helped me I won’t make up stories just because I got it for free. It’s a companies choice to send me a product and if I feel like it didn’t help me I’m not going to lie and say it did. But I digress so to get this out of the way: yes I got all the products for free but I was not payed to review them.
I know protein powders are not everyone’s thing. For me, I have been looking for a protein powder that I can add to my daily diet. When asked what sort of samples I would like to try, I immediately said protein powder and then whatever you felt like sending me. The protein powder they send me is called Garden of Life “Raw Protein”. It’s a whey that is vegan. I’ve never tried a vegan powder before but honestly it was pretty good. I just added it with a cup of milk, ice and some coffee (yes coffee) and mixed it in my magic bullet.
Half way through drinking, I decided I should take a photo for proof. Anyways-I really like this protein powder. Though I’m going to try a few more before making a decision (commitment is hard…), this is certainly in the realm of possibilities.
They also sent me some multi-vitamins. I take a multi-vitamin every single day. I don’t have much to say about these. I took them, they only have 2% calcium (what I most look for in my multi-vitamin) and I didn’t get sick or feel bad afterwords. They have almost everything else though so combined with a calcium supplement or more milk, I’d be fine with them.
Finally the last product I received was this: ProSupps Hyde Preworkout Amplifier. I won’t lie and say I had ever tried one of these or been remotely interested in them. Yes, I’ve heard of preworkout stuff but never really felt the need to try it. I tried it before a run that I did a week or so ago. I must say (and it could be due to the caffeine) that I did have a pretty kick butt run that morning. Normally I hold around 8:30 pace but that morning it was more towards 8:00 mins. Who knows if that was the sole reason but I did feel good.
The products they sent me were all great. I don’t think I’d buy the Preworkout Amplifier because I’m personally on the fence about that sort of the thing. I’m not sure about the multi-vitamin just because I like the calcium component but it wasn’t bad by any means. The protein powder, however, I do really like. I think Best Price Nutrition’s Claim (Should link to the main website I guess…lots of links for you) to fame is in their title though as they do have some of the best prices on the internet (and that much I cannot complain about).
Questions for you:
Do you review a lot of products?
Do you use any of these products (whether it’s this brand or not)?
