    9.1/10 Excellent peanut butter substitute

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:10/10


    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take,Mixes Well,Tastes Great,Better nutritional profile than regular peanut butter

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "I'm trying to go vegan this year, so I'm being more thoughtful about where I'm getting my protein. I like peanut butter, but whole nut butters are high in fat. I like PB2 for this reason, and I was pleasantly surprised by how well it mixes in shakes. Adding water to the power alone makes for a nice breakfast spread too. I've almost entirely switched over to PB2, I only keep whole peanut butter around for baking."

  • Product Name: Prairie Naturals Red Superfoods

    7.9/10 Helpful in winter

    Effectiveness: 8/10
    Value:7/10


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

    How did you use it?: Every Morning

    "I like using greens in the winter, when fresh produce is expensive and poor quality. Most greens taste terrible and are hard to mix (I find most products clump in water, so you wind up swallowing globs of powder), so I decided to try fruit-based greens. These mix much better, and the taste is like beet juice. I'd buy this product again."

  • Product Name: Whey Gourmet 2 Good Bars Bundle

    7.9/10 Solid between-meal snack

    Effectiveness: 8/10
    Value:7/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Builds Muscle,Convenient

    How did you use it?: Between Meals

    "I've been quite pleased with these bars in terms of taste, digestibility, and nutritional profile. I find many bars have a chalky taste and sit in my stomach like a bowling ball, but I don't get that with these ones. 390 calories makes for a great bridge between meals on days when I'm lifting heavy and need to eat more. At $3 a bar you don't want to be relying on them too heavily, but I do think they're worth the price."

  • Product Name: Precision Mettle, BCAA - (Discontinued)

    7.8/10 Good intra-workout results, but...

    Effectiveness: 8/10
    Value:6/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,First Dose Results,Mixes Well

    How did you use it?: During Exercise

    "This is the first intra-workout product I have used, and I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I deliberately saved my first use of it for a harder workout (two hours of weights, plus an hour of cycling) which I knew was typically challenging for me to complete. I started taking Mettle about halfway through the weight routine and found it immediately improved my recovery between sets. It also allowed me to sustain a greater power output over all the reps of a set, meaning I was lifting heavier for longer.

    However, I have experienced fewer benefits for my more typical workouts, where I am only lifting for an hour. This isn't particularly surprising, given the point of Mettle is to prevent the breakdown of proteins for energy, something which your body only starts doing after sustained and vigorous exertion. Given a serving of Mettle is about $2, I have started saving it for my longer workouts, and forgoing it during the typical ones."

  • Product Name: Allmax Razor 8 Blast Powder

    10/10 The second you don't respect this, it kills you

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:10/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value,Mixes Well,Quickens Recovery Time
    (-)  Makes Me Jittery

    How did you use it?: Before Exercise

    "The title of my review is a quote from a movie, so don't take it literally. However, if you're going to take Razor 8, you need to respect its power. It's easily the strongest pre-workout I've ever had, and I find I can't take more than two teaspoons at a time without feeling uncomfortably wired. I have gotten in the habit of downing half a protein shake before I take it, and them immediately starting my workout, which I find prevents this discomfort.

    All this said, I gave it a 10 for effectiveness for a reason. The energy boost it provides is both dramatic and sustained, and its capacity to quickly flush out lactic acid means I routinely squeeze out more and heavier reps when I am on it. It absolutely provides results, but if you're new to pre-workouts, I really encourage you to start with a small dose and build up your tolerance gradually."

    "This is the protein I've been using the most lately, and I've been very happy with its quality. It tastes good, mixes well, and is filling enough that I can have a shake before bed and not wake up feeling ravenous. I like the protein blend itself as well too; the concentrate/isolate mix makes it a good pre-workout as well as a post-workout. I wish it didn't rely on sucralose as a sweetener, but I don't know of many products that don't."
