I have always been a skeptic of supplements that are marketed towards women. Most are diet pills that claim they are the miracle pill of the future or some sugary “protein” shakes that are actually lacking in the protein department. It can be really frustrating figuring out what are the best products for you!
Most products labeled “For Women” are high in carbs and/or low in protein. They are just sugary low grade versions of what we should be putting in our bodies. Of course going into any supplement store can be intimidating. The selection is always overwhelming and in most cases marketed towards men. If there is a women’s section the products are sub par and are usually a waste of money.
You typically find products like Special K Protein RTD shakes, Click Protein, etc. The packaging is always smaller and pretty, yet still the same price as the quality products that are marketed towards men. Then you end up talking to this guy Ha ha ha ha!
I was sent some products from NLA Performance to try. The product line is called NLA for Her. I had done quite a bit of research prior to receiving the stack. I was pleasantly surprised by how the stack was laid out! This product line was just released, so that added even more to the excitement!!! I couldn’t wait to try them to see if they are comparable to quality stacks I have tried, or if it just fell into the “women’s product line” hype.
The face of the product line is IFBB Figure Pro athlete Jessie Hilgenburg. She is someone I look up to, so I was stoked to even be a part of the newly released line. Jessie earned her Pro card last year so congrats to her on that and this awesome line of products!
Okay, let’s talk about the stack! The first thing I looked at was of course the Protein. You all know my hubby dubbed me the Protein Princess, because instead of shoes, jewelry, clothes, etc I have an impressive collection of protein ha ha ha
It is called Her Whey which I love. It is gluten free and sugar free. Macros are as follows 225 calories, 7g fat, 4g carbs, 28g protein. I love that it boasts more healthy fats. I tend to neglect them in my diet when cutting weight, so this is really a cover all blend for me on protein! The flavor is Chocolate Eclair. When I first opened it, to me it had a chocolate cinnamon smell. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. WOW!!!! The flavor floored me. It is SO dead on and tastes SO good!!!! To boot when I first opened the container the scoop was at the top. So yeah, it was meant to be!!!! xoxoxox
The protein has quickly become my favorite Protein Blend! It has Isolate and Micellar Caseinate, so you fuel your muscles instantly and will continue to feed them for hours to come. You stay full and did I mention how good it tastes???? As you all know my favorite before bed treat is my Protein pudding. Some protein blends don’t always fare well when mixing with my Greek yogurt. I typically use just a Casein, but I tried it with Her Whey and it was HEAVEN in my mouth!!!!
The next product I am excited about in the stack is Uplift. This is the pre-workout drink. Again, AWESOME product! It is full of Amino Acids. It is formulated to make your body burn fat while working out. It actually fools your body into believing it is breaking down muscle, so you instantly burn fat instead! Um, how awesome is that??? It gives you an amazing energy boost without the jitters or the crash. There are NO artificial colors. It has Beta Alanine, which I personally love! The flavor is Raspberry Lemonade and yes, again phenomenal taste! There are a lot of pre-workouts out there that are eh okay in flavor, some are just nasty, then there is this…..It tastes like something I shouldn’t be drinking. It is like candy! I LOVE it!!!! They just released Cherry-Limeade Oh I need try try that one now!!!!
Next up is Her Aminos. Her Aminos comes in Pink Lemonade it also tastes off the chain, has no artificial colors, and is a potent blend of Branched Chain Amino Acids, Beta Alanine (I love the tingles! Don’t judge ha ha ha), Taurine, Citrulline, and Glutamine. Everything you need in one drink. You can drink it pre-workout, post workout, when you first get out of bed. It is the perfect amount of energy to get you going. If you are unaware of what this blend actually does for you, let me break it down. It will allow your body to adapt to an intense workout, it will utilize your fat stores for energy, and enhances recovery! Therefore you are going to burn fat, build muscle, and recover faster!!!! This is greatness in my book!!!
The last, but certainly not least part of this stack is the Shred Her Thermogenic. Of course the fact I am cutting weight right now made it a perfect time to be able to try this product! I have been using the product for 13 days now, and I can honestly say I am down half inch in the waist and 2lbs on the scale! I love the way it makes me feel. It is a natural mood booster with ingredients like Green Tea Extract, Taurine, Caffeine, Citrus Aurantium Extract, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Raspberry Ketones (which by the way make the pills smell so good!), Ursolic Acid ,Guarana Extract. I take one when I get up and one pre-workout in the afternoon. There is no jitters and no crash. I just feel energetic and ready for anything! This feeling lasts all day!
With my workouts getting more intense, this stack has been a lifesaver! I have had the energy and focus to power through my workouts/training, which on some days have been lasting hours. The stack is amazing whether it is for a man or woman! My hubby actually likes the line too ha ha ha ha!
The labeling is spot on, it’s not too masculine or feminine, the flavors are unmatched, the macros are perfect, in my opinion NLA Nailed it! They hit it out of the park. All of the companies that market towards women will need to step up 10 fold, because at this point in the game NLA for Her has it in the bag. There is NO other stack or product line on the market for the female athlete that can even come close to comparing to this!!!!
