Hardest Review Ever

2010

For the past month I have tried to sit down and lay out a review of two different products…..Action Wipes and CarboRocket.

Both of these companies sent me samples of their products for the purpose of reviewing it on this website, and although this has been super tough for me I am finally going to honor that agreement.

If you’ve never heard of them before, I can say this…Action Wipes are “natural, full body wet wipes, for when you can’t shower” and CarboRocket is an “all-natural sports drink for your hydration and nutrition needs”.

You see, I am totally committed to giving my complete and honest opinion of the products I review…..It’s part of my nature and so it is the only way for me. It’s also in my nature to be nice.  Hey, I’m Canadian….aren’t we all like that?  But seriously, I like to be nice and I have a hard time acting any other way.  Now the reason doing these two reviews have been insanely difficult for me is exactly because of these two traits….Honesty and Nicey Nice.

So for the past month I’ve sat at my computer trying to figure out how I am going to tackle this, and what I’ve decided to do is leave this review to you, the reader. These two products may not be for me, but I am just one opinion.  Let me know what you think of them. Be honest now.

Enjoy Your Ride

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
