Holiday Giveaway 3: Genuine Health
It’s not really a secret I love Genuine Health.
It is one of those companies that I use every single day.
Every morning when I wake up, I grab a water bottle full of Genuine Health ActivFuel and head to the gym, track or pool. I recently did an experiment with pre-workout nutrition which you can read here.
Every morning, I will also take liveprobio + omega for some probiotics to keep my gut healthy alongside Omega 3+ Joy to reduce inflammation from stress and training.
In the afternoon, I almost always will have one of their protein bars to tide me over to dinner. Covered in chocolate and filled with vanilla or chocolate protein powder with greens you can’t taste (promise), I look forward to it every single day. My favourite flavour is Vanilla.
Post workout, I will use their protein powder and I really do not have a spoken favourite at this point. They came out with some great fermented protein powders this year which I haven’t tried yet, but I love the chocolate, vanilla and chocolate peanut butter.
I will have a smoothie almost daily as well where I use their protein powder and Greens +. Since my stress fractures, I have been using bone builder greens to add some extra nutrients to my diet to keep my bones strong and healthy.
With the training that I do, I often need a little help in the nutrition department which is why I love using Genuine Health. They have awesome flavours and one of the only medical grade products out there. I grew up with my mom using their greens so it felt a bit like a dream come true to get to work with them later as an athlete.
For this reason, I want to share the love and give away one of my favourite Genuine Health products, the chocolate protein powder. Winner can chose between whey or vegan options.
All you have to do is tell me what supplements you use in your training in the comments and like Genuine Health on facebook.

Currently I use Nuun hydration tablets on long runs, but I’m starting to train for my first marathon in a few weeks(Ottawa Scotiabank) and I’ll be looking to add some supplements to my diet!
WOWZA you do love this stuff! I won’t enter because I don’t eat dairy, but I still wanna leave a comment. I use pea protein every few days, a probiotic every few days, and a B12 vitamin daily. I’m actually pretty terrible with supplement kn knowledge other than ones I know I need due to my choice on eats.
Hey Brittany, I should mention that the winner has the choice between whey or vegan protein. I’ll update that now and add you into the contest. 🙂
I use Arbonne protein before and after my workout or run. I also put Arbonne fibre in the smoothie. I take Arbonne essentials which has a multivitamin, bone and antioxidant tablet, live microorganism capsule, and enzyme capsule.
All of these supplements help my body to repair after I have broken down my muscles with a hard workout.
I would love to try the difference in protein powder! I have liked Genuine health on Facebook 🙂

I normally train with Vega products, usually just either the performance protein or Vega One. I’m interested in trying Genuine Health though, sounds like another fantastic company!

I use FitSmart French Vanilla flavored protein shake the most. It has 20 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber. It really gives me the energy I need and tastes great as well! Thank you for this opportunity!
Since I can’t eat wheat, dairy or a lot of additives, protein powders are hard to come by in my price range (I’m a SAHM). I use a lot of pumpkin seeds/nut butters for protein. I ferment my own kraut for probiotics and put spirulina in my smoothies for extra minerals. I just started running this past summer…now I’m learning to conquer my fear of the treadmill!

I train with VEGA pre-workout energizer and then usually follow up my workout with Isagenix Isa-Lean Vanilla shake or the VEGA sport protein. I bought my first tub of the VEGA protein and am working on finishing it but won’t be purchasing it again because it is too gritty. I think I’ll try the Genuine Health brand next!
Terry Edwards says
I use Perfect Whey 100% New Zealand Whey . The told me something about how its a better kind of Whey. I get the Peanut Butter flavor and mix it with milk for my post-workout supplement. Sometimes after a late night gym workout I will add a giant scoop of Peanut Butter, a banana and ice to make a smoothie 🙂

For my successful athletic exploits I don’t actually use supplements, only sweat and muscle here! I do however use 100% Argan Oil on my beard, the oil itself is the finest in all of Morocco. In order to keep the 100% traditional purity of the oil I have the oil delivered by mule, by boat and then by foot from Morocco. A healthy beard equals a healthy Athlete!!
Natalie Mercier says
i take isagenix isalean protein shake. Would love to try something new! Btw, love your blog.
I use vega one protein after my runs, when I’m not injured or sick, and their smoothie powders every day. I love the idea of the bone strenghtener! That I could use too!
Like you on Instagram. 🙂
I already had you on FB too! I should go on there more often!
I use Cellucor C4 before workouts and usually Vega protein or Genuine health proteins! I love their greens too!

Occasionally I take creatine pre or post workout. I use protein powder when I have some, but I don’t make it a priority because it’s pretty expensive lol.

I have a warrior food protein shake with calcium liquid and flax oil, frozen pineapple spinach and raspberries……its yum…..I would like to try genuine health, but nervous with the greens………..some greens are just YUCK! It would be nice to have single sample sizes to try. Fun and informative website!
I use liveprobio + omega.

I use protein powder, GU Gels, Clif bar, and some supplements like Omegas, BCAA’s and Cal Mag. I like to try new things and see if I feel the difference. I would like to improve my nutrition for my first 50 Mile in the spring.
