When my friends at Genuine Health asked if I wanted to try their new product Activfuel+ I jumped at the opportunity. ActivFuel+ is a powder drink mix to be used before and during exercise to help fuel, rehydrate and sustain energy through your workout.
The ingredient list is pretty awesome, containing natural ingredients such as apple peel, rhodiola, beetroot and brown rice. I like the taste of the black raspberry lemonade, it was delicious and refreshing. In fact, I enjoyed it so much I add some to my water and sip through the morning while at work (not working out…) And most importantly, ActivFuel+ works. It is easy to drink and I could absolutely notice a difference in the quality of my workout if I consume this or just plain water. I also like that ActivFuel+ gives the option of having caffeine or being caffeine-free which is my preference since caffeine makes me shaky. ActivFuel+ also contains branched chain amino acids or BCAAs, a group of amino acids (amino acids are our building blocks of protein) which help to enhance performance, used as energy and reduce muscle soreness post training.
The downside is that ActivFuel+ is not vegan as it’s made with whey protein (which I consume) and I think think this is a shame since if they made the product veg-friendly they could take on Vega’s fabulous Sport Performance line.
All in all, a very good product!
