I tried NutriFitt’s whey protein supplement after meeting the founder and hearing his journey and commitment to quality. I like to support up and coming businesses so I gave it a try and was amazed. It mixes immediately and the chocolate flavor actually tastes like chocolate, not like some chemical engineering committee’s overdone attempt. It has no artificial sweeteners, colors, or preservatives. Plus, it includes probiotics and is easy on the stomach.
The true taste test? My teenage daughter even likes it.
There are a lot of supplement brands on the market, NutriFitt happens to be my favorite.
Because you’re awesome and a listener of Imperfect Action you save 15% on every order, just use the code TAKEACTION (one word) at checkout.
(My personal favorite: Double chocolate whey protein.)
