It’s nearly the Christmas Party season and an overall excellent time to introduce fitness into your lifestyle. USN has kindly sent me some of their products which I’ve tried out myself over the past few weeks, and I’d love to share them with you.
The first product which I was delighted to try out was USN’s Ultra Premium ISO-GRO Whey. In simple terms, this is a whey protein powder which you can use in two ways, either within individual meals like porridge or you can even add it to water or your choice of milk to mix it into your very own protein shake. For those who’re complete newbies, this product contains a lot of protein per serving which contributes to muscle growth and development. It’s an easy, straightforward and efficient way of introducing more protein into your diet without eating lots of lean meats. I was sent the cookies and cream flavour, and I must say, It’s a great taste! I’ve had a few other whey protein powders in the past which have both, not tasted so great, have been a little too thin in texture and have not mixed very well. Comparing this to the more premium USN products, you get an entirely different experience. First of all, I noticed that when mixed with water (as the healthiest option) It was a little bit thicker than the opposing brands. Other than that I immediately noticed that there were zero problems with the mixability of the powder, I wasn’t left with any clumps or lumps. Just a delicious shake ready to drink on the go!
I recommend taking this drink as a healthier option for a snack or immediately after exercise. Since this is an ‘ISO-GRO’ product from USN. This means the product is very fast acting, the protein and nutrients from this shake will be absorbed into the body a lot faster than your bog-standard protein shakes. The great thing about this shake is that you don’t need any previous knowledge in fitness or nutrition, It’s super simple to make! With the scoop provided in the tub, take or two servings and place it into a shaker cup with water or milk & shake! Alternatively, you can use the ISO-GRO whey as an ingredient to porridge/oats. I usually eat a bowl of these ‘proats’ every single day, and I absolutely love them!
With the dark nights coming in, the second product can come in real handy! USN B4-Bomb Pre workout is a product which is designed to provide you with that much-needed energy/caffeine boost on days where you may not feel as alert and aware. Not only will this drink increase your energy levels and improve your overall mood, but it tastes fantastic! I was lucky enough to receive the pink lemonade flavour which makes a refreshing beverage when added with some ice. B4-Bomb is one of my favourite go-to caffeine fixes during the day due to its high-quality blends and ingredients along with the taste that no other company has matched yet! You simply take one – two scoops depending on your caffeine tolerance or if you desire a larger ‘kick’ from the energy with a 400ml glass of cold water, give it a quick stir or shake, and you’re ready to enjoy!
B4-Bomb is personally helping me at the moment during my diet phase where calories are a little lower than the usual. This means my body is still adapting to the changes I’ve thrown at it; my body is naturally going to be a little bit drained, and I’m overall going to feel like I have a lot less energy doing tasks throughout the day. Especially if I fit in one of my much-needed gym fitness sessions 5 days a week! The drink is spiking my energy levels without giving me the awful crash like a coffee can sometimes give, which conclusively is now my favourite energy/pre-workout source and I’ll be picking up another tub of this when I run out!
Overall, USN is one of the largest, most well-known and trusted nutritional brands within the fitness and health industry. I’d be genuinely surprised if you’ve never at least heard of it! All the ingredients in both, the ISO-GRO and B4-BOMB, are both completely safe and will not pose any risk to your health over than improving it! Nothing but two thumbs up from me, they have nailed the taste, quality, texture and packaging on the head and I cannot fault them.
