I’ve been a fan of Now Foods products for years. Not only do they make great quality products, but they are reasonably priced as well. I also love the variety of their products – everything from vitamins, to supplements to protein powder. If you’re looking for a product to help you in your fitness journey, I’m sure they have it!
For the past few weeks I have tried the Now Foods BCAA Blast and Effer-Energy products. These two products came at the perfect time as I was participating in the Orangetheory Fitness Transformation Challenge. As part of the challenge, I was taking 5 classes a week, so I definitely needed products to give me energy and help me recover.
I’ve heard of BCAAs but have never actively incorporated them into my fitness routine. I used this product after my OTF workouts and runs to help my muscles recover. When I had a morning workout I noticed that the BCCA product helped me feel less tired during the day, so that was definitely an added bonus! After using the product for a few days I noticed that my muscles didn’t feel as sore, especially after running inclines or lifting heavier weights in class. I am planning on continuing to use this product and have already ordered it in another flavor 🙂
I tried this product before and during my workouts. When using it before class I would drink it 30-45 minutes before activity. During a workout I would drink it every 10-15 minutes. I felt that it kept me hydrated and energized. The product also has a little bit of naturally occurring caffeine from green tea so although it gave me a boost of energy I didn’t have any type of “jittery” feeling.
At first I thought that the tablet was a little sweet (tropical punch flavor). To offset this, I just added more water when using the tablet. The product recommends 16 ounces of water, but I used 20-24 ounces which solved that issue.
