Did you know that muscle cells require two essential ingredients to function properly? They need fluids and energy. This is where MeStrength comes in, providing both of these with a zero calorie, sugar-free beverage containing five key electrolytes for hydration as well as five grams of creatine for performance. A packet of MeStrength helps you get the most out of your workout.
When I was offered the opportunity to try out and review MeStrength for BibRave, I was interested. Of course, I had questions about the product before saying yes. First off, it HAS to be vegan. I have been living a vegan lifestyle just over 6 years now, so maintaining it is always my first priority when it comes to supplements. MeStrength is not only vegan, but gluten-free as well, so that was a bonus. While I haven’t been diagnosed celiac, with my thyroid issues, I do like to choose gluten-free options when possible. Once the product passed the “vegan test,” my next question was “is it full of artificial ingredients?” There are so many sports drink supplements out there that have sucrolose in them as well as all sorts of artificial colors. I do my best to avoid those sort of ingredients in my foods and drinks. MeStrength is made of high-quality ingredients that is free of sugars and artificial flavors and colors. The product does not have unnecessary additives like preservatives, stimulants or stabilizers. In addition, MeStrength drink mix is kosher and certified Organic!
When I received the box of MeStrength drink mixes, I was excited to try them out. I think it took me longer to decide on a flavor than anything else. Flavor options include fruit punch, kiwi strawberry, lemon lime, grape and orange. I ended up going with the grape for my first try, and it was sooo good! I used it for my gym workout that evening and not only did it taste great, but it didn’t give me any issues stomach-wise like some products can do. The taste itself is balanced just right, not too sweet or overpowering in the slightest. Mixing the packet with 20oz of water was perfect. I didn’t find myself feeling the need to add more water to it like I might with powders that have a strong taste. I finished the entire bottle by the end of my bike workout and only wish I had brought another packet of MeStrength with me!
Having since tried all the flavors, I would say my favorites are probably fruit punch and grape. The kiwi strawberry is pretty darn great as well. Honestly, I just want to have all of the packets around in my supplement stash all the time, so I can drink it every day! If you are looking for a drink mix that is high-quality and tastes great, I recommend giving MeStrength a try!
