Review/Giveaway: ERO Performance Drinks

Can I be honest. It's hard to find something wrong with this dietary hack. ERO is not an energy shot as it looks, but a fitness shot.

Wait. Huh?

ERO features 10g BCAA, vitamins and minerals, all while containing no sugar, caffeine, or calories. Music to my ears! This 6oz shot delivers clean, focused energy in a small mango, citrus flavored package.

Why is this important to me?

Let me start here- in the beginning… well, a few years ago, I knew I had to make a change in my life. I was overweight, had various health issues, and was very unhappy with my body.

Long story short I found that eating high protein and nutritionally dense foods that don't come out of a box (gasp!), drinking plenty of water, and being active was the answer I needed. The better I fed by body, the better I felt, and the more active I became.

What I do is not a diet, it's a lifestyle.  True-life story.

Also true life, is learning more about what makes a healthy body, and supplements to aid a healthy active lifestyle. Supplements like BCAAs.

If you've read any of my reviews, you know I'm all about family, health, and beauty, and educating myself in these passions.

So without further adieu, another segment of:

The school of Jen!

Today's lesson:
BCAAs are Branched Chain Amino Acids. BCAAs are the building blocks of muscle, and many of them aren't aren't produced in the body. We produce nonessential amino acids, rude, right?

BCAAs can only be ingested through protein-rich foods or supplements.

Not only does our body need BCAAs, as it does vitamins and minerals, they are proven to increase muscle repair and muscle growth, inhibit muscle deterioration, significantly reduce muscle and overall body soreness after a workout, they also promote weight loss by targeted fat training, and improve mental focus.

Recap: we need BCAAs for everyday life, more so when working out, for our muscles, for less fat, and for better concentration.

If you didn't know all that, we'll, you're welcome.

ERO provides 10 grams of instantized BCAAs that enter the bloodstream more efficiently than micronized BCAAs which need to be metabolized.

I wasn't sure what all the ingredients were when looking at them, so after looking it all up I see ERO is true to its word, amino acid after amino acid after amino acid, and vitamins, and minerals…. Yup, all good for me.

So I tried my first one before a workout.

In my experience, ERO is best shaken vigorously before opening, and served over ice. The flavor is tart and mango citrus, almost a pineapple flavor. With its convenient packaging, I would also bring ERO with me on a long workout or hike.

I was skeptical, even with all the research out there, that I would really have more stamina and energy during my workout. I am happy to report, I wasn't ready to stop. We sometimes take an after workout picture, with exhausted, sweaty faced smiles to prove our hard work. When I shared this photo with multiple workout buddies, one pointed out how tired she looked, and how good I looked. I indeed was so ready for more!

The next workout we did together, again I took my ERO shot, with confidence. Faster, better, stronger. More, more more.

I love knowing the BCAAs delivered by ERO promotes not only higher endurance, but aids in fat loss.

As I mentioned before, I've learned a high protein diet is key to success.  Now I know why, and how to increase results in a much bigger way.

Stronger. Leaner. Sharper. The ERO credo is perfect. Definitely check them out. I also really enjoyed the active lifestyle art on to their social media.
