I pretty much love trying out new fitness and running related products so when I was contacted by Mike at PartnersHub and asked if I wanted to sample a new protein supplement called Frog Fuel I jumped at the chance (no pun intended)! In addition, they have also generously offered to give one lucky reader their own sample pack as well!
So what exactly IS Frog Fuel? It's a medical grade protein developed by former Navy Seals. If that doesn't make you feel hardcore, I don't know what will :)
Here's a little more information about the science behind the product from their website:
1. It's hydrolyzed. Faster absorption means better performance and quicker recovery!
2. It's a Pure Collagen Protein - Improved skin, muscle mass and tone, increased joint flexibility, healthier bones, arteries, hair, nails and eyes.
3. Contains Taurine - Help rebuild muscles faster!
4. Used in the health care industry and qualified as a medical food!
5. You can toss it in your go bag.
There are no banned substances, sugars, fats, carbs, gluten, cholesterol, lactose & excess ingredients.
As I stated in a previous post, I seem to struggle with getting enough protein in my diet, and what I like about Frog Fuel is that it's LACTOSE FREE! Hello! That makes me incredibly happy.
I have tried a few other fueling options on long runs before but don't really have a preference. Unlike most people, I don't really mind Gu. I also like Clif Shot Bloks. And last year I tried Honey Stinger Chews which I thought tasted just like old school fruit snacks!
I'm excited to try Frog Fuel both before and after a workout to see how it performs as both a fuel and a recovery supplement. Once I do, I will put up a new post with my review.
I am out of town for the holiday so I haven't had a chance to try my sample out yet, but I wanted to get this post up, give you the information about the supplement and kick off the giveaway since it will end next Thursday, July 11th.
To enter to win your own prize pack of 3 protein shots to try:
Leave me a comment telling me what you currently use to fuel your workouts, or what you eat afterward for recovery.
I will use Google's random.org to generate a winner from all commenters and announce the winner on Friday, July 12th!
*Disclosure: Frog Fuel provided me with samples for this post, but I was not compensated in any way. Reviews of the product will be entirely my own.
