Today, I’m going to share a product line that was new to me a few months ago. The concept is interesting and the two products I was able to try – definitely interesting as well. I’d like to introduce you to – Naked Nutrition.
Naked Nutrition was founded by former cross country and track All-American Stephen Zieminsky in 2014. He saw a need to create a supplement/nutritional brand for people that are trying to live a healthy lifestyle but were marketed health, while being sold something else. It began with five single-ingredient supplements, including their best-selling Naked Whey from grass-fed California cows and Naked Pea from raw yellow peas grown in the USA and Canada. Naked Nutrition is now known for its no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners, and no mixing agents. The concept… you control the flavor and your nutrition by what you choose to add to Naked proteins and supplements. Seems fairly simple… right?
Nakedade – Lemon Lime
I’ll admit that when I first saw this product on the website, the first thing I thought of was Gatorade. Products that tout the “electrolytes” word in their title kind of bring to mind similar types of drinks. But this one is different.
Nakedade comes with individually wrapped packets which make it great to throw in your gym bag and head to your workout. While most electrolyte drinks on the market are either very sweet or taste funky – this particular powder has a light flavor. If I had to be honest – I didn’t like the flavor and neither did my son (who uses it pre-workout). But, that was easily fixed by adding it to a flavored drink instead of just water.
This powder is best used during a high-intensity workout for that extra hydration boost and prolonged energy. Nakedade contains Palatinose (isomaltulose) which is a smart carbohydrate sourced from sugar beets. During the manufacturing process, the sucralose is isolated, leaving behind the potentially harmful fructose and glucose. This functional carbohydrate works to improve fat oxidation during physical activity and prolongs and maintains energy supply.
Our Thoughts on Nakedade
Since my eldest son actively workouts with a pretty rigorous routine, I had him take the Nakedade first and be my tester. After the first time using a packet in his water – he did say he noticed that he didn’t feel so sluggish or as tired post-workout. He also noticed that he didn’t feel like he was extremely thirsty. Nakedade definitely made for a good post-workout drink and it did help with replacing his lost electrolytes.
Nakedade & Naked Gut are Dairy Free, Certified Gluten-Free, GMO Free, Soy Free and Vegannakednutrition.com
He was not a fan of the taste but drank it nonetheless. It dissolved easily and was not chalky – all things that he and I both considered were really good positives. I as well did not like the taste. I felt like I was drinking sparkling water – which isn’t a bad thing, but it was a bitter type of sparkling water. Maybe if I tried the other flavor it would be different. I enjoyed the energy I got from it but I couldn’t relate to the same level as my son since my workouts are not nearly as extreme.
If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to sports drinks that have a ton of sugar in them, then I definitely suggest checking this out. I was able to make it work by adding it to other drinks. I don’t drink carbonated type drinks any longer so mixing it with something other than water helped to take the carbonation down a bit and it was easier to drink.
Currently on the website a bag of Electrolytes Powder Packets (currently available only in Blueberry Lemonade) retails for $23.99. A serving size is 1 stick and you get a total of 16 sticks per bag. You can read all about the product here.
I am a probiotic gal. Due to my various health issues, probiotics have been a staple in my nutritional health and supplements for years. I had the opportunity to also try the Naked Gut Health Supplement. This product only contains seven natural ingredients including prebiotic fibers, probiotics, glutamine, and inulin or optimal gut function. Perfect for maximizing nutrient absorption, minimizing digestive discomfort, and supporting the healthy gut microbiome for better immunity and overall health. This product was designed and created to help you reduce stomach issues like bloating, constipation and inflammation.
Naked Gut is best used as a daily digestive supplement to sports drinks, juice drinks, or smoothies. It can be used once per day with or without food.
I take Naked Gut as part of my daily supplements and mix it in with my coffee, smoothies, or juice. I thought this product would be a great one to try out since I already take probiotics daily but also have lots of stomach issues. I have a number of different types of stomach ailments and it can be difficult to find a supplement that doesn’t screw things up even more.
My Thoughts on Naked Gut
Overall – I like Naked Gut and can see myself using the powder long-term. It didn’t really have any type of taste but I did mix it into my coffee and other drinks. I didn’t try it with just water because if it tasted funky – I’d likely not drink it anymore. This powder dissolves nicely and I don’t recall noticing it leaving an after-taste in my mouth. I like things to be routine and on a schedule and this product surely assisted with that – if ya know what I mean.
Naked Gut Pricing
Naked Gut retails for $24.99 for 40 servings in the container. It is in powder form and one scoop is all you need. If you’re interested in checking out Naked Gut, click here.
So – let’s talk about the overall of both products. First, considering the number of products you get and what you are buying – these products are pretty darn affordable. I take a variety of supplements daily and these are quite comparable and still reasonably priced considering all of their attributes. I was definitely impressed overall with the price point. I’d like to try a few other products like the Keto Fat Bomb, Naked PB, and Naked Shake as those are rated high with great reviews and their overall cost is reasonable as well.
Honestly – considering the different supplements on the market today and the price point, I think Naked Nutrition is a must-buy. I’ll be placing an order soon to try out those other items mentioned and I do think I’ll continue to use Naked Gut in my daily supplement regimen.
I definitely suggest checking out Naked Nutrition and see if any of these products that I mentioned or any others available on their site (there are tons) may fit into your daily supplement or nutritional needs. Naked Nutrition offers Free Shipping for orders over $99 and there are so many options available for everyone.

I want to thank Naked Nutrition for working with me and for being so patient as I take things seriously when reviewing and trying supplemental-type products. I try to use each product till they are empty to ensure I have tried it well in order to provide my opinion.
