Taste and physical performance – I would say that the taste was similar to other powdered drinks. I sampled the lemon lime flavor. I did not care too much for the aftertaste. It seemed to linger a bit after consumption. The product mixed very well with water.
Side Effect information – I did not sense any of the side effects that Honey Badger claimed may happen but each individual is different. I would read those side effects and then make sure that you look out for any signs of them as you take the product.
Performance – Honey Badger seem to provide me with the energy that I needed. Even on those days were I had two and three workouts a day, I had the energy to complete those workouts. Looking back on it, the product did seem to delay the fatigue factor in my muscles.
Ingredients – The caffeine in honey badger is just slightly more than an 8oz cup of coffee. If you normally take a little caffeine before a race or a workout for its benefits it is already in this product and delivers. I also like the fact that it has no artificial sweeteners, preservatives, flavors or colors. Turmeric provides the color which is an anti-inflammatory. This is a big bonus to athletes. Beta-alanine is in this product also which is a molecule that delays muscle fatigue.
Claims – Honey badger claims to give you the energy you need without the crash. I think with the amount of hormones and blood pumping through your body when you do a high intensity workout, not sure you would feel a crash anyway. I did not feel any crashes in my performance. My workouts consisted of between 30 minutes to 90 minutes of intense activity.
Summary – Overall, I think this is a quality product. I would continue to use the product based on my performance while using the product. I have not used many supplements like this because I do not feel that they give sufficient claims about performance and recovery. After using Honey Badger, I am a fan of the product and its claims.
