I recently found an amazing company that makes the tastiest raw (BS FREE) training supplements! BS FREE; meaning that they don’t have any JUNK in them! Seriously, NO BS! Love all the natural and raw superfoods that are in their products! The company is Natural Force. “Powered purely by herbs and superfoods, rather than synthesized vitamin powders, Natural Force® products deliver superior performance without poisoning your body. Backed by certifications such as USDA Organic, Paleo Friendly, Non-GMO, and Gluten Free, you can be confident our products will help meet your health and fitness goals without compromising nutritional principles.”
I’m gonna be honest here….I love working out first thing in the morning (yes, even before breakfast). I like to get my workout done so I have the rest of the day to finish everything I need to do. So, I’m always looking for healthy products that will give me a boost to push me through my workout, without a bunch of “stuff” in my belly. I love products that I can drink 15-20 minutes before I workout. I don’t have time to wait hours to workout, and I don’t have the energy to workout in the afternoon or evening.
The Matcha Ignite is amazing stuff!! The first time I tried it, it gave me tons of energy, without jitters, and I added one scoop of their Collagen Peptides, to give me a little protein boost for my workout as well. PLUS…this stuff is amazing for your hair, skin, nails, and joints! It all mixed really well together and has a yummy chocolate flavor. I mixed it with 16 oz of water, which is a lot before my workout so I think I will cut it back to 12 oz next time. UPDATE: I’ve been using this for over a week now and 12oz of water is the perfect amount for me…PLUS I’ve noticed that early evening, say around 7 pm I’m not as tired as I was before using Matcha Ignite. I get up around 4:30 every day so usually by 7 pm I’m getting a little tired, but lately I have more energy and am not tired until 9 pm 🙂
To learn more about why Collagen Peptides are so important, check out this great blog post on Natural Force’s website.
I followed my workout with their Recovery Nectar which is loaded with so many superfoods that aid the body in the recovery process. It tastes “green” which I LOVE. The green taste comes from the Spirulina (amazing superfood….insert benefits). This one did need a bit more shaking and at the bottom there was some “grit” left, but to be honest; I don’t mind because I know all the healthy goodness that is in this drink 🙂 (yep, I’m one of those people!). My husband, on the other hand, would not eat or drink anything if it’s gritty or has a taste he doesn’t really care for, no matter how healthy it is for him.
Natural Force has a subscription program too so you can get these amazing products on a schedule that fits your usage!
If you have tried any Natural Force products, which is your fav? If not, which product would you want to try first?
Stay Healthy my Friends!
