Fall is here. And you know what that means? The cool, comfortable air moves in, the color of the leaves start to change -- and people get sick! That's right, people start falling ill! And ain't nobody got time for that (especially not me, I got things to do)!
Sadly, I have been feeling under the weather since late last week. Tired, little feverish, sniffle -there was no better time to try out Suffcient-C!
I'm one of those weird people who loves healthy foods and drinks packed with nutrients-- and you don't have to be a registered dietician to know that Vitamin C can help with cold recovery! So, I started downing their Lemon Peach Immune-Ade.
So I have tried so many vitamin drinks-- I can't even start to list off the brands-- and let's be honest. They don't always taste great, they just have a vitamin taste to them. Since I workout a lot and I like taking vitamins (I know, like I said weirdo), they don't really bother me. But I still can pick up that earthy, herbal flavor.
With Suffcient-C though, this Immune-Ade is tasty, so right away I'm thinking, ok they've covered up the vitamin taste with sugar. But then when I looked at the ingredients I saw that the mix is stevia-sweetened (ask any nutritionist, stevia-- natural plant-based sweeteners-- are all the rage).
So naturally sweetened, packed with nutrients (2000 my of Vitamin C per scoop, plus L-lysine, Bromelain and a 94% pure green tea extract) and easy to make (just use the scooper inside the jar and add to water). For me, this was awesome. It tasted great for a vitamin drink (and lemonade in general) and boosts the immune system!
I think it was a great way for me to get fluids and vitamin C in my system while I was sick and I think I'll definitely use it just for hydration during the workday and after workouts. Sufficient-C is more than sufficient to me!
