Vega Sport Review

I got the opportunity to be a part of a review for Vega's #FuelYourBetter.  I tried the Vega Sport pre-workout energizer.  From their website VEGA:

Get in the zone with energy to burn. The ingredients in each serving of Pre-Workout Energizer

  • Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs)
  • Devil’s claw
  • Panax ginseng
  • Turmeric

 It has 70 calories per serving and one packet should be mixed with 8 oz of water.  

Sports a unique blend of 12 synergistic plant-based performance-improving ingredients, including :
Drink 20 minutes before a high-intensity workout or training session lasting more than 30 minutes.

I received the Acai Berry flavor and was excited to try it out. 

I decided to try it first while at work since the package states mental focus. I mixed the packet in water and it took some time for it to disolve. 

I was pleasantly surprised at the taste. While it's a little bland, it has no bitterness or bad after taste.  After I got past expecting it to be sweet and over powering, I enjoyed this little plant based drink.  It did help me stay focused at work and I gave it a thumbs up.

The next day I decided that I would do the same and share a packet with my sister to try as she was packing for a move and needed a little extra umph. We both had great results. She said "it was a little bland but it gave me a ton of energy, without making me feel jittery."  

I agree, I had a good level of energy but never felt jittery.  I also never felt the crash like I have on some other energy supplements.

Now for the "real" did it fuel me for exercise?

This week I started the C25k program and used the Vega Sport pre-workout energizer.  I was stoked with the results!  I completed all 3 days of week 1, which I haven't been able to do before.

I felt great before, during and after the sessions. One day I even jogged a whole extra interval.  I was so proud of myself.

I love Vega Sport!  

How do you #fuelyourbetter?
