Mix 1 All-Natural Protein Shakes Product Review & Giveaway

This past fall, I came across Mix 1 All-Natural Protein Shakes (HERE). Mix 1 only creates products with all-natural, high-quality ingredients that are truly functional. They believe that all-natural products are better than artificially enhanced ones. The company's goal is to promote athletic performance and overall health, be an asset to their community and improve people's lives. Training for marathons and endurance events is a lot of work. Proper nutrition, along with the training, can drastically improve physical performance and take an athlete to the next level. Mix1 products contain only the highest-quality, all-natural ingredients including whey protein isolate, carbohydrates, antioxidants, soluble fiber and healthy fat. They use the right balance of these ingredients, at efficacious levels, to provide the maximum benefit to your body before a workout, after a workout, or throughout your day.

I was sent a mixed-case of Mix 1 All-Natural Protein Shakes to try. I used these as meal replacements, for pre-workout fuel and for post-workout recovery. My favorite flavors were blueberry-vanilla, strawberry-banana and orange twist. I don't typically care for lime or mango flavors, so it wasn't a surprise that those weren't my favorites.

The all-natural protein shakes have about 200 calories in a bottle and the lean performance version contain about 90 calories. It's probably no surprise which variety I would rather splurge on or tend to purchase. The lighter version was not as sweet or creamy, but tasted just as delicious. They were a great way to fuel up before a mid-distance run, when paired with a banana.

  42. Protein shakes are a quick and easy way to make sure that the body receives proper nutrition it needs after exercise. The average drink has 40g of protein and is immersed for 40 minutes. All weight trainers know the benefits of their use, but all do not understand what a useful tool that can be when dieting.

  52. The product of the most widely used protein shakes the market. This is partly because it is readily available in most stores nutritional health. The other reason is that compared to other brands, GNC protein powder is relatively inexpensive. This product has been known to work reasonably well, and marks the taste and affordability. However, we know that high quality product. GNC protein products are ideal for lovers of most fitness.
