Frog Fuel Review and Giveaway


frogfuel

Recently, I was contacted by Frog Fuel and they asked me to try their protein gels. I’m always excited to try out something that will be helpful on my runs and this was no disappointment. The consistency of the gel was not nearly as thick as some of the gels that I normally use but it wasn’t super thin either. The taste was not bad at all and easy on my stomach. Since they sent me 3 packs, I gave a pack to my oldest son to try since he’s currently training for a triathlon and has stepped into the world of sports nutrition. He had rave reviews for it as well.

Here’s what Frog Fuel’s site has to say about their product and what makes it different:

FrogFuel™ was developed by US Navy SEALs (Frogmen) to satisfy the need for a top shelf nutritional product that is easily consumed and highly effective.

Unlike many other companies, the founders and owners of Frog Performance and their peers not only use their own products but also live and breathe the lifestyle they preach to others. Even after life as elite operators in Special Operations, the owners of Frog Performance continue their relentless pursuit for perfection. FrogFuel is only the beginning of that quest!

FrogFuel is a protein supplement designed for optimum bioavailability and nutritional value to help YOU achieve unquestionable results. Please read below to understand why FrogFuel is truly a superior performing protein product.

THE SCIENCE OF FROGFUEL

FrogFuel liquid protein starts working immediately at the cellular level to increase strength, prolong endurance, and accelerate recovery.

FrogFuel Is a Patent-Pending Complete Collagen Protein and FDA Qualified Medical Food
The patent pending formula includes enhanced amino acids and taurine for maximum power.  Because of its rapid absorption FrogFuel can be taken before, during, or after a workout and provides the optimum nutrition to exercise for sustained periods at peak performance.

FrogFuel Is ‘Pre-digested’
FrogFuel is pre-digested using papain (a fruit enzyme found in papayas).  Papain breaks down the peptide bonds in the protein allowing for rapid delivery of nearly 100% protein at the cellular level.  Faster absorption means better performance and quicker recovery.

FrogFuel Is a Pure Collagen Protein
Why Collagen?
Collagen is second only to water in terms of volume in the body.
Collagen is found in all of our connective tissues, such as bones, tendons, dermis and ligaments as well as cartilage, teeth and muscles.

Benefits of Collagen: 

  • Improved skin and Muscle Tone
  • Increased joint Flexibility
  • Healthier bones, Arteries, Hair, and Teeth

FrogFuel Has Taurine
A key ingredient in FrogFuel is taurine, which acts quickly to open cells for the protein to enter and rebuild muscles and aid in recovery. Taurine reduces oxidative stress under extreme physical exertion where lactic acid builds up in the muscle.  Contrary to popular marketing campaigns taurine is not an energy enhancer.

FrogFuel Has Enhanced Aminos
Enhanced amount of Cysteine

  • Assists in proper function of immune system
  • Strong antioxidant properties
  • Neutralizes toxins and deactivates free radicals.

Enhanced amount of Histidine

  • Critical for blood hemoglobin
  • Crucial in the production of red and white blood cells

Enhanced amount of Methionine

  • Critical for maintaining hair, skin and nails
  • Increases output of lecithin by liver, helping lower cholesterol

FrogFuel Energized Protein Has Caffeine
Caffeine does improve performance. Caffeine combined with our rapidly absorbed protein provides unparalleled support before and during exercise.

Proteins form the body’s main structural elements and are found in every cell and tissue.  Your body uses proteins to build and repair muscles, bone, connective tissue, skin, and virtually every other body part and tissue.  Protein supplements is a necessity for those who desire to achieve the optimal performance to be one of the elite.

Trust Your Intuition Official Book Release


 

I am so excited to officially announce that I am a contributor in a newly published book: Trust Your Intuition 25 “Natural Medicine Confessions” from Influential Women Who Use Healing Remedies For Their Families! It will be released July 17, 2013. There are 24 other women besides me, who have also contributed, and we each share a story of why we chose to use natural alternatives for a health issue or challenge in our homes.

Trust-Your-Intuition

 In this book, there are situations that these women have encountered and they have shared how they have used natural medicine to resolve the problem.

My chapter is about Chia Seeds and how I use these tiny, nutritional powerhouses to fuel my running. I also discuss how I lost weight through running and making healthy changes to my diet.

I am amazed at the powerful other stories in the book. I would like to introduce you to a few of the other contributors as we get ready to launch the book.
