MetCon supplements are designed by athletes for athletes. They are made to deliver concentrated nutrients at specific times of exercise to help you push yourself to optimal performance and get the most out of your training and races. Metcon START helps buffer lactic acid build up, provides sustainable energy release, and essential vitamins and electrolytes to push your limits during performance.
MetCon START is all-natural, contains no artificial flavors, colors of sweeteners. The product uses Stevia, and is Paleo Friendly, Gluten-Free and made in the USA. Each serving contains 200mg of natural caffeine from green coffee beans, which is equivalent to a cup and a half of coffee. Check out the full supplement nutrition facts here.
To use MetCon START, you mix 1 scoop into 12 ounces of water. To access tolerance, the brand recommends trying a half scoop initially. I used a half scoop for a few days when I started the supplement, but moved up to a full scoop within a week. I’m not caffeine-sensitive, so it didn’t bother me. You drink it 15 minutes before your run or workout.
I immediately noticed a difference in how I felt after taking MetCon START. I felt more focused and energized. It helped me push harder through on my bike workout that first day. Using it on my runs yielded similar results, I felt good. Didn’t bother my stomach like some supplements have done in the past. The only side effect I noticed is a bit of tingling, which wasn’t a bother to me. I’ve had that experience in the past with some pre-workouts, and I attribute that to the niacin, or B3. Again, it’s minor, but it’s something to note when using it.
Overall, I really like this supplement. I feel like it gives me the boost that I need for my workouts. It’s especially great for my early morning 5am runs! If you normally drink coffee before a run, this may be a good alternative for you. It’s easy to drink in the car on the way to your run, and it feels clean. The taste is also good, sort of citrus-like even though the canister states it’s fruit punch.
