  • Product Name: Vega Sport Electrolyte Hydrator

    10/10 Effective, but too sweet to my taste!

    Effectiveness: 10/10

    (+) Easy To Take,Good Value,Mixes Well,No artificial sweeteners
    (-) Too sweet tasting

    How did you use it?: During Exercise,After Exercise

    "A great alternative to the sugar or sweetener laden mass market offereings (ie anything by Gatorade). However, the sweetness of this one is a bit off the charts -- I find it's okay for occasional use, but a bit off-putting for day-after-day.

    In terms of flavour, both the pom-berry and lemon-lime are fine (but sweet). In terms of effectiveness, it's great -- whether it's for hockey or long rides/duathlons, I find it keeps me hydrated very well."

  • Product Name: Hammer Endurolytes Fizz

    9.8/10 Incredible re-hydrator!

    Effectiveness: 10/10

    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Mixes Well,Tastes Great
    (-) Could be stronger flavour (lemon lime only)

    How did you use it?: During Exercise

    "Since I wanted a not-too-sweet (and non-chemically sweetened) rehydration option, I was pleased to find Hammer Fizz. No caloric impact, just the rehydration I need during intense exercise.

    This has quickly become my go-to hydration for workouts, bike rides, and hockey. Lemon lime is subtle, not too sour or too sweet. I like grapefruit just as much and am trying to like Mango -- it's just a little strong for my liking.

    One tablet per 750ml bottle works great. I use two in a larger hockey water bottle. Easy to break tablets in half if you want more or less in the mix.

    Really a big fan of this product. Just ordered a whole box, in fact, so I can be sure I don't run out this summer."

  • Product Name: Dymatize All Natural Elite Whey Protein

    9/10 Tasty, chemical free, and affordable!

    Effectiveness: 9/10

    (+) Builds Muscle,Convenient,Easy To Take,Good Value,Mixes Well,Tastes Great,No artificial sweeteners

    How did you use it?: Before Exercise,After Exercise,Everyday

    "Was searching for an artificial sweetener-free whey powder, and have found just that in this product. No sucralose, aspartame, acesulfame here. Just stevia, a natural sweetener that replaces sugar without chemicals.

    Have tried both chocolate and vanilla, and both tasted great -- not fake, not bitter, and not too sweet. The mixing is fairly good -- depending what it's shaken with, it can require a few extra shaker tosses or stirs, but it's generally a quick mixing powder.

    I have returned to this product over and over again, and it's now the only flavoured whey powder I'll buy. I can only hope Dymatize will add more flavours to the line, and even an unflavoured option!"

  • Product Name: Allmax IsoNatural

    9.5/10 Great unflavoured whey powder!

    Effectiveness: 10/10

    (+) Builds Muscle,Convenient,Easy To Take,Mixes Well,Tastes Great

    How did you use it?: After Exercise,Everyday

    "A non-flavoured, easy mixing, high-quality whey protein with no added sweeteners -- exactly what I needed. I use this to mix in with foods like yogurt or juice, when I don't want added flavours, and even to boost the protein content when I make pancakes or muffins. It's a bit on the pricy side, but I take the quality aspect seriously, so I figure it's worth the money."
