Best Price Nutrition Product Reviews

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)?

  1. I have been looking to try Garden of Life Raw Protein. I am not a huge whey fan but interested in seeing if I can find one I like.

  2. I don’t really review products. But then, my blog is more of a personal one I guess. I may do some reviews on things I just like, just to tell people how I like them soon. Totally uncompensated, ya know?

    My husband recently got some of the pre-workout/intra workout drink called Xtend, and it’s pretty good. I’ve only had it twice and am on the fence about whether or not it worked, but it tasted really, really good and has a lot of essential amino acids in it, which are hard for vegetarians to get, so I guess it’s a good thing. If nothing else it tasted like a watermelon slushie so I can’t complain about it. I’ve wanted to try Garden of Life protein so now I may pick some samples up since you liked it.

    Like you, I don’t use a ton of supplements. Sometimes I think I’m the only person who’s not using gels, protein powders, pre-workout boosts, etc. Since Clay’s into using them now I’m kinda trying them with him but like I said… verdict is still out, lol.

    1. I’m somewhat confused? I never said I didn’t take supplements and I do take a multi-vitamin. I am also looking for a protein powder and am integrating gels into my marathon training. What are you planning on doing for the marathon if you aren’t using gels?

      1. I’ve used gels a few times, just for half marathons though. I’ll probably use that same gel in my full, unless I find a better alternative (and I’m too chicken to try anything new on a long run). I saw where you said you didn’t take the pre-workout stuff. Like you, I do take vitamins.

        I guess what I’m saying is… you eat real food. And I like that. I know people who don’t eat, but suck down a gel before a morning run. Or always drink pre-workout stuff, always have post workout protein (even after shorter runs). Maybe everyone I know is just huge on workout boosts ?

  3. Thanks for the review – it’s so helpful, I’m always looking for products that are better and that I can be sure to maximize my energy and effectiveness with!!!

  4. I love your dedication to honesty for reviews. It may be the calcium is low because of some research coming out that calcium supplements may have some side effects for some people? Not sure. Nice review girl 😀

  5. I use Garden of Life. The chocolate is decent and the vanilla is actually pretty good. The original flavor is awful and overpowers anything I have tried mixing with it.

  6. My BF has used pre work out stuff on and off for the last few years. Anytime I try is my lips and face get really itchy. After a few times of that I have sworn off any and all pre work out boosters. Oh and for vitamins… I do gummies : )

  7. I’ve never tried any of these products, but I do know what you mean about protein powders. I was a Gold Standard drinker all the way until I bought Cellucor (Peanut butter marshmallow!!!) and I’m probably never going back. It’s so good and it mixes SO well with anything, especially coffee which most products don’t.

  8. How is the whey protein vegan? Whey comes from milk, and milk is definitely not vegan. Does the packaging for this stuff say that it’s vegan? How is this possible?!?!
