Thousands of people including myself have been using Animal Pak vitamins for many years. If you haven’t heard of them before, they are a staple for hardcore lifters and first appeared on this scene in August of 1983. Throughout all my 20’s I always used Animal Pak right after I worked out. They consist a wide assortment of various pills that give you a huge dose of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, performance enhancers and digestive enzymes. To put it simply, they work great!
There is one problem with Animal Pak vitamins, and it’s kind of a big one. There are 11 pills and over half of them are the huge, horse sized pills. Now for me, truthfully, it is not usually a problem. I open the pack, put them all in my mouth, guzzle down some water and they are gone. However, occasionally my throat can’t seem to handle some of the gigantic elephant pills and rejects them with the gag reflex, choking and coughing. One time I literally threw up from them. Of course, take one pill at a time and that would help, however it wouldn’t solve the problem because seriously…some of those pills are huge!
Luckily, the good folks at Univeral (Who make Animal Pak), came up with the idea of making into a great tasting orange flavored or cherry berry powder mix. I cannot tell you how much better and easier it is now! Instead of attempting to choke down 11 pills, I simply pour a scoop of the powder in 8 oz. of water, stir and drink. The orange tastes like Tang, if you are old enough to know what that is. The cherry berry tastes just like the name implies! It actually makes me WANT to take my vitamins now instead of sometimes dreading it! Same price and same number of servings, so no worries of paying more!
The new powdered formula is almost identical to the original Animal Paks, however it IS slightly different. Trust me folks, unless you need to bring your vitamins to the gym and want the packs for the convenience factor, the powder is definitely the way to go!
