Meet Nicole…

Nicole Inwentash, CNP

Going to the gym has always been a passion of mine. I love starting my day with an early work out. Usually, when I wake up in the morning, I’m pretty tired and unmotivated to exercise because I have low energy. I heard about Vega’s Sugar-Free Energizer product and thought I would try it out. I took the drink 20 minutes before my spin class and I have to say I was shocked by how much more focused I was while exercising. I was powering on the spin bike and suddenly I experienced a burst of energy. This was a new feeling for me, as previously I often felt tired by this point. Spinning is a complete cardio work out and requires you to push yourself for maximum effect. I was genuinely surprised by the effectiveness of the Vega Sugar-Free Energizer drink as it significantly enhanced my mental focus.


I encourage those who are active at the gym to try the drink 20 minutes before a work out, (it can be yoga, spinning, running, pilates etc..) and see how quickly energy levels change. Not only is this drink great for boosting endurance, but it is also filled with nutritious ingredients that play an important role in your body.

Health Benefits of the Ingredients

VegaSport_SFE_Product_Page_385x450px_AcaiBerry_110613_NACoconut Seed:  Coconut seed has amazing antioxidant properties. It can lower cholesterol, improve digestion, stabilize glucose levels, fight off viruses, increase metabolism and fight off infections.

Yerba Mate: Yerba mate is made by steeping or infusing the ground leaves and stems from the yerba mate plant. Yerba mate is extremely rich in antioxidants (it has 90% more antioxidants than green tea!), which helps to enhance one’s ability to focus. It also helps with digestion by stimulating increased production of bile.

Devil’s Claw:  Devil’s Claw is a plant that grows in Namibia in very dry conditions. It has really powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can help with bone and joint pain.

Green Tea:  Green Tea is particularly rich in health promoting flavonoids, which are thought to play a pivotal role in green tea’s anticancer and antioxidant effects. People who consume green tea have lower risks for a wide range of diseases, from bacterial or viral infections to chronic degenerative conditions like cancer, stroke, and osteoporosis.

Rhodiola:  Rhodiola has been used to help reduce fatigue, boost endurance and support mood. It also protects muscle tissues during exercise and helps increase antioxidant levels in athletes.

Ginseng:  Ginseng helps to increase resistance and improves physical and mental performance. It has the power to move a person to their physical peak, increasing vitality and physical performance.

Sodium and Potassium:  Sodium and Potassium are really important for energy production and fluid balance. They help the kidneys function properly. Potassium is also the primary electrolyte in your body’s cells. When you work out, you lose potassium, which is why it’s important to replenish your potassium levels.

Turmeric:  Turmeric is a concentrated source of curcumin, which has incredibly powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It helps promote joint health and heart health. Many people who experience any type of joint pain find relief when they use turmeric.

Ginger:  Ginger may be helpful in the case of bad circulation and cramps. Ginger acts a diaphoretic (sweating herb), which promotes perspiration.

    I actually started using VEGA All In One and love it. It makes me feel more energized and doesn’t weigh me down like all the whey products out there.

  2. Anabela says:

    I usually workout after work and it takes all I have to drag my arse into the gym after a long day in the office. I will try anything to have more energy before and during a workout. I may see better results.

  3. Melissa says:

    I struggle with my iron levels so I’m always looking for a little bit of an extra push. Vega has always been a great help in preparing, sustaining, and helping me recover from my workouts. I would love to try the sugar free version!

  4. Mistene says:

    I need help because I run from work, where I teach 28 12 year olds. Energy is needed!

  5. Glynis Corkal says:

    I need more energy to keep up with keeping up! I am often on the go, and between work, gym and taking advantage of all Winnipeg has to offer, I often eat on the go. Trying to keep nutritious alternatives handy is a challenge – and I hate falling back on coffee when my energy lags. I recently was told I have hypothyroidism, and while I am learning to manage it with diet and hopefully get off medication, Vega Energizer might be just what I need! Plus – I LOVED Vega Sport when I was participating in a fitness challenge at my gym – it got me through my workouts!

  6. Ellie says:

    I need more energy because I have a very hectic schedule! I work out first thing, spend the day at the office, and run off to other plans after work! As the season is changing I find myself feeling sluggish and tired and want to keep up a healthy lifestyle.

    Vega Sport can help me get that extra boost I need to stay on track!!!

  7. Talia says:

    I need energy because I’m about to be a WIFE!! ahhh Time to get my workouts and healthy habits in order to set a good example!!

  8. Rob Shiels says:

    I struggle so much with energy levels, I have sleep apnea and anything to help me during the day is always a big help.

    Thanks for the chance.

  9. Amy Lovell says:

    Im about to start school, and my daughter is in school and I am helping a friend move and pack! Could def use some more energy!

  10. Anne Derkat says:

    I have so little energy these days. Really really need some help.

  11. Veronique L says:

    I’ve got a wonderful nine month old boy who isn’t sleeping well and I’m getting up several times a night sometimes. this would be a great boost before my gym workouts or swim workouts!

  12. Is this as strong as normal pre workouts?

  13. Kristen says:

    Oh sounds like a great product. I really need some help right now.

  14. Josh says:

    I’m so tired, need more energy right now!

  15. Swimming is a great workout for people of all fitness ages and levels, and medical conditions. Water workouts create a high resistance environment where calories are burned quickly and heart rates increase, but they are also low impact and can be done many people who are not able to do more traditional exercise.

  16. Jaqueline says:

    It seems that it is a good product, I should make more researching about it before buying it, thanks
