Product Spotlight: Core Power Protein Shakes

A delicious post workout recovery drink for your active lifestyle, Core Power is a real milk protein drink made from fresh, lowfat, lactose-free milk and real honey. Its optimum protein to carb ratio and nutrient-rich profile make for the perfect last stage of every workout. From endurance sports and bodybuilding to pilates and yoga, Core Power helps you recover faster, build lean muscle and stay at the top of your game. No matter which game you happen to play.

Why Protein?

  • Milk protein contributes to muscle development while the natural carbohydrates of honey provide the energy to rebuild muscle and glycogen stores. Consumption of carbs with protein after a workout optimizes muscle recovery and growth.
  • Made from fresh milk and real honey, one great-tasting, lactose-free serving of Core Power provides athletes and fitness enthusiasts with 26 grams of high quality fresh milk proteins, consisting of 21 grams of casein proteins and 5 grams of whey proteins. The light versions still pack a heck of a punch, serving up 20 grams of the same high quality fresh milk proteins.
  • The unique nutritional profile of Core Power uses the best proteins and delivers calories that your body can actually use.
  • Milk’s unique ratio of whey and casein proteins builds lean muscle while its vitamins and minerals keep the body healthy.

Product Spotlight: 5aDay Food Supplement

5aDay is a powdered food supplement made with five fruits and vegetables from México. This innovative new product is packed full of 100% natural ingredients including the following dehydrated fruits and vegetables: carrots, squash, strawberry, blueberry and kiwi. This unique combination makes 5aDay rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber.  Green Tea extract provides antioxidants and stevia gives the product a natural sweetness.  5aDay boasts only 16 calories per portion and contains zero colorants, artificial flavors or added sugars.

To prepare just add the contents of the package to a 500ml bottle of water, shake and enjoy.

Sold in an 8 gram black package.

Available in México in the following stores:  Office Max, Costco, Comercial Mexicana and Farmacias del Ahorro

Price - $10 Mexican Pesos



5aDay offers consumers a convenient way to get a boost of vitamins and minerals.  The packaging size means you can take this product anywhere to be mixed in a bottle or glass of water. The design is vibrant and eye catching. We tried the product in a glass of water as opposed to a bottle to be able to see the color of the contents.  Be sure to mix thoroughly if you use a glass or shake sufficiently to fully mix the contents.  Some of the contents have a tendency to produce little balls so make sure to dissolve the product all the way. The color could be described as somewhat murky and resembles what apple juices look like.  I would describe the taste as vitamin like, not different from a vitamin water or other powdered drinks.

What I really liked about this product is the convenience factor.  The small pack size means I can carry a number of 5aDay packs with me at any time and easily mix with water whenever I feel the need for some healthy goodness.  Personally I don´t like how long it takes to eat fruits and vegetables so with 5aDay I can get a healthy dose of fruits, vegetables and vitamins in a few sips.  This is a great first product from the makers of 5aDay and we hope to see different fruit and flavor variations down the road.
