Product Review: Your Nutrition Experts online shop

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

There is a new online health and suppliment store in the UK.  nu3.com (Your Nutrition Experts) started off in Germany but has been rapidly expanding all over Europe.  Products fall into health, beauty, nature, sport, and slimming categories.  These folks were kind enough to send me some food samples, ranging from energy drinks to flapjacks to breakfast cereal.  Have a look on their website next time you are looking for a new way to fuel your sweaty sessions.

Energy cakes (pictured left):  These gluten-free, yeast free, vegan bars are like flapjacks in taste and consistency.  They are quite dense and about 500kcal/bar.  I used them as meal replacements when traveling on the cheap in The Netherlands for the Spinning conference.  A half a bar is also a great post-workout snack.  It would definitely fend off a bonk on a long bike ride too.

Allos Amaranth Basic Granola (pictured right): This sugar-free, all-natural cereal tastes great on milk.  I prefer a big breakfast so would have this with fresh fruit.  It contains hazelnuts, almonds, oatmeal, linseed, sesame, and millet seeds for a low-GI breakfast to keep you energized all morning.

Fine Fruits Organic Smoothies (pictured above):  Lucky me, I had 2 flavors to try!  Acai berries are turning up everywhere and these Acai smoothies are gluten and sugar free, as well as vegan.  High fiber with plenty of antioxidants, these drinks are 100% Brazilian fruit. It isn't too sweet and great for detoxing (because of the acai berries!). The Acerola+ Power smoothie tasted more like apples to me (even though it doesn't have any in it) and is high in Vitamin C. Have one of these for breakfast to help fight off sickness and scurvy.  Both were a wonderful treat to sip on during my busy mornings.

Best Body L-Carnitine Lemon Lime drink (pictured above):  I have no idea how this drink can be so sweet without any sugar or sugar substitutes.  It is also gelatin free, gluten free, yeast free, lactose free, and vegan.  I usually drink Lucazade Light, so most energy/rehydrating drinks seem very syrup-y to me.  This drink has the consistency of water, but I still watered it down a little because it is a little strong for my taste.  Great hydration tool though for hot days or killer workouts!

Your Nutrition Experts did not pay me for this review. They graciously sent me these products and all opinions are honest and my own. If you have a product you would like me to review, please contact me: mollie@ptmollie.com.
