      Comments about FLUID Recovery Drink Tub Nutrition:

      I live in Florida where, for six months of the year, the heat and humidity can be outright oppressive, even in the early morning hours. I am also a 54 year old female who has been running for 35 years. At the beginning of the summer, I just didn't think I could take the heat anymore. My morning 6 or 7 miles was leaving me totally wiped out for the day. As soon as,( and I mean the first day) I drank Fluid after my run, I noticed a HUGE difference. I actually felt amazingly good for the day and I was ready for another workout the next day. I can't believe it! Now I walk in the door and immediately put 8 ounces of room temp water in a glass, add two scoops of Fluid, mix to dissolve, then add several ice cubes to cool and drink it down on my way to the shower. I love this product! The only down side is the price since one container gives you 16 servings and it's around [$] (approx $1.50/serving). Since this makes such a difference to me though, I try to buy it with my VIP discount and any additional discounts that may be offered.

          This stuff is a good for recovery after a run or a workout. I put "poor value" only because of it's expensive price and the fact that the container is only about 1/3 full when you open it.

            I use Fluid after every workout. It reduces the soreness that I would have after a tough workout, allowing me to do other things after my workout. The Berry and the Tropical mix well and go down easy. The Chocolate does not mix well unless you use a blender because of the real cocoa powder, but it does taste good too.

                I've been using Fluid for the past year and I am NEVER sore from any of my workouts. I weight train, swim and run and I believe Fluid has helped me keep my edge. I like all 3 flavors with a slight edge to chocolate.

                  Comments about FLUID Recovery Drink Tub Nutrition:

                  I've been using Fluid for about a year now. Has really changed the way I recover. Its a noticeable difference when I have it and when I don't. Main thing is feeling less achy & sore after tough workouts. Recommended it to my marathon training group this year for Eugene, everyone loved it! Mixes well for recovery stuff, little clumping at first but it all disappears after a min. Not too sweet, heavy, or chalky like other protein/carb stuff I've tried.

                  Comments about FLUID Recovery Drink Tub Nutrition:

                  I use Fluid after every workout. This includes running, strength training, and yoga. It is very convenient, and easy to drink. It tastes wonderful, and isn't a chore after a workout. It's also very easy on my stomach which has been my main problem with other recovery drinks. My only complaint is that they don't have a chocolate flavor. Try this product... I'm sure you will love it.

                  I've also met the owners personally, they are both gifted scientists and wonderful people. This is a true family owned company, and I feel great supporting good people.

                  Thanks!

                    I heard about Fluid from cyclists who swear by it - the catch is use it within 30 mins of a hard workout, along with Fluid's specific blend of gluten-free complex carbs, lactose-free whey protein, Glutamine 2500mg., Vit C, Sodium, Potassium. 128 cals per serving.
                    It works and is worth the benefit of quicker recovery!

                      This product is amazing. I was a competitive mountain biker for awhile and used other products that were similar, after taking a few years and couple surgeries later I've gotten back into cycling, this a great after ride drink, this help with my sore hips and knees and seems to aide the muscle building and recovery a lot faster then past products.

                      Comments about FLUID Recovery Drink Tub Nutrition:

                      I always go with Fluid Chocolate recovery drink. It may not always mix perfectly, but it tastes good, and really makes me feel better after a long run, and I rarely have difficulty getting out the next day for another long run.

                      It would be great if it had a bit more protein but you can mix it with milk for that instead of water. I believe the Glutamine has been truly helpful as I am running 40-50 miles a week on hills.

                      I guess the biggest drawback is the cost. I wish they had a bigger tub that was lower-cost per serving.

                          I look forward to consuming this at the end of a hardwork. It is a recovery drink without artificial sweetner or stevia products, both of which I can't stand the taste of. My favorite is the chocolate even though the cocoa powder doesn't dissolve as well. It definitely tastes better when mixed with milk rather than water. I definitely experience more muscle soreness if I am not able to consume it within 30 minutes of finishing my run.

                              I am on my second tub of FLUID Recovery Drink. The Berry Treasure flavor is ok - although my wife doesn't care for it. It is not sweet, and overall, I would describe it as a "light" recovery shake. It does not leave me feeling bloated, and often times I will drink it during a workout. It mixes well with water, although I usually use more than the recommended 8-12 oz to mix my two scoops. One thing I noticed - the scoop in my second tub was noticeably larger than the scoop in the first tub I bought. I forgot to check and see if both tubs had the same number of servings.

                              I am training for a marathon and drink this after each run and notice that my muscles recover much faster. It does not taste that good, but I generally find that these types of drinks don't. To help with the taste, I add ice so that it is chilled. When it is gone, I plan to purchase more, and may try the tropical flavor.

                                  I just got turned onto this product and it's quickly gone to the top of my preference list. I've used some of the other well recognized products & this one by far is the most effective. Not to mention it actually has a great taste. Kudos to RRS for adding this product to the line. Thank you....
