NuZest Clean Lean Protein review

In mid-2014 I encountered Australian company NuZest’s Good Green Stuff for the first time, thanks to a reference from Dennis-Lee Stols, a fellow trail runner. After testing it for a TRAIL magazine review over several weeks, I became increasingly impressed by the combination of its big list of nutrients available in powder form as well as its understated flavour. Being palatable, even pleasant, always helps encourage the average person to continue consuming something they know […]

CW-X Ladies PRO 3/4 Length tights

CW-X’s patented Kinesio Support Web™ system is more noticeable in these Conditioning Wear Ladies Pro 3/4 Length tights than in their Pro shorts. The company says their system helps condition the body properly during training by stabilising and holding the body’s systems in the right way so that muscles can perform what they were designed to do. “Traditional compression just holds everything tight,” says SA distributor Roger Bown. Kinesio Support Web™ is essentially an overlapping […]

CW-X Men’s PRO shorts review

CW-X Conditioning Wear: Men’s PRO shorts review. Do you finish some of your runs feeling like a bus ran over your legs? That aching sensation for the next day (or three) after big efforts is the result of microscopic tears in the muscle and joint tissue. Even highly trained athletes get it when they reach a new level of effort. They have their limits after all. Some athletes (representing the whole range from weekend warrior […]

Go! Vitality Boost review

Use this effervescent multivitamin, as its name suggests, as a boost. Taken first thing in the morning in a good-sized volume of water (300-500ml), it’s going to do two things. First, it will start hydrating you after several hours of zero fluid intake. Second, it’s going to flood your body with 12 important vitamins and minerals including vital Vitamins B12 (2.5ug, which is 250% of minimum daily dose), B1, B2 and B6, C and D3 […]

Turbovite Whiz-Fizz review

This effervescent powder is a good morning drink to charge your body with micro-nutrients as it’s starting up for another testing day. I drank the orange flavour for three weeks, and found it extremely pleasant on the palate. Over the years I’ve learned that the best way for me to remain cold- and flu-free is to stay hydrated. Example: I did a 90 minute morning paddle and that afternoon a 70 minute trail run, for […]

Rush Bar Training Bar review

There’s a definite swing to take diet back to basics and top of the list in the sport nutrition field must be sport bars. The public appetite for synthetic-tasting, plastic-smelling and rubbery-feeling slabs of colourant-laden putty of dubious origin is waning – and good riddance. Some of the big players have already launched bars and there seems to be plenty of room for the newcomers. Rush Bar are Cape Town-based and their distinguishing mark is […]
