Vega Sport, Recovery Acceleratory

As a runner and someone who has lost a lot of weight, I am always looking for new ways of fueling my workouts or recovering from them without lots of sugar. 

I had the opportunity to review the Vega Sport recover in a tropical flavor. I love that it is dairy, gluten and soy free. If you have any if those allergies or are trying to stay away from those ingredients, this recovery mix is free from them. I was a bit nervous at first when I read the warning labels that said to consult with your doctor first if you are on any prescription medication. I'm on several medications for my Epilepsy, so this made me a tinsy winsy nervous, but I still tested it out twice anyways and had no problems!
So, I gave this product two different test runs to see how I would like it. On my first try, I thought that maybe I have diluted it with too much water. It says for 12 oz of water only, but I did 16 oz because it seemed funny when I was mixing it.. It was chunky looking, so I thought it needed more water, clearly I was WRONG! 
On my second try, it was better, but the flavor tasted like Tropican Orange Juice. I'm not much of a fan for orange juice, so I thought the flavor was not stellar. However, I have heard that that Vega Sport has other flavors and I would be curious to try those.
The benefits; I could definitely tell my recovery time was faster since drinking this drink or at least it felt that way. I loved that I was getting the electrolytes and energy I needed without all the sugar from other drinks. I could also tell a difference in reduction of inflammation in my joints and muscles.. Maybe that is all in my head, but I have been having some knee pain on and off. Surprising after BOTH runs, I had none... WOOT! WOOT!

Would I purchase Vega Sport Recovery accelerator again? Yes, just not in this flavor! I can tell the benefits of this, just not a huge fan of drinking Orange juice, but maybe you would like this flavor...

Do you have a favorite supplement post-workout that you love that is gluten free???? 

I received this product from Vega Sport and Sweat Pink for review with no compensation for this post. All opinions expressed here are my own and my honest opinions.
