Here’s a quick way to kill that slump. Protein shots.

Provide Gold One Shot liquid protein Provide Gold One-Shot protein is a new to market liquid protein for athletes. A one-ounce portion size is a nice feature for those who need quick and fast working fuel before and after a workout.

Provide Gold One-Shot Protein delivers 15 grams of hydrolyzed collagen protein in the single ounce. It requires no prep or refrigeration and is pre-digested with fruit enzymes for rapid cell absorption. “Because Provide Gold is concentrated and predigested, the complete amino acid profile is in a form that can be immediately used by the body to build muscle and aid in recovery – allowing athletes to enjoy the powerful benefits of hydrolyzed protein WHILE exercising,” said Dr. Joyce Gilbert, PhD, RD, LD/N Magaram Center for Food Science, Nutrition & Dietetics at California State University Northridge.

“Protein molecules are notoriously hard to break-down by the body," says Gilbert. "There is usually a long time lag between eating protein and its' eventual absorption and utilization by the body. For example, some protein products will not benefit the body for many hours…Provide Gold is different in that it benefits the body immediately rebuilding muscles and aiding in recovery.”

According to the company, the elixir is engineered to preserve fluid and pH balance as well as transport oxygen, vitamins, and minerals to target cells throughout the body. It helps to achieve a more balanced amino acid profile, improve action at the cellular level and deliver nutritional support. The product contains all the essential, non-essential and conditionally essential amino acids to help your body naturally reach peak performance levels of strength and endurance. No caffeine, lactose or banned substances.  Ingredients include enhanced amounts of taurine, cysteine, histidine, methionine, threonine and tryptophan.

Available in 30 oz bottles at Provide Gold. $35 for 30 oz in regular and sugar free flavors.  Recommended dose is 1 oz 30 mins before a workout and again 30 mins after (100 calories regular, 30 in the sugar-free).

So what's it taste like? My opinion, like a liquid Warhead. Super sweet/sour with a sticky consistency. Take a shot with a little food. It's a pretty potent option when you need that extra boost.
