So many awards..kind of…

As many of you will know, we recently ran what we called “The Suppies.” You guys voted like it was going out of fashion!

Of course there can only be one winner in each category, even though the voting was close in a few instances.

So, in support of transparency and all that, here’s how you voted!

Best Protein Powder – Matrix Alpha Test

The first of 4 awards for Matrix Nutrition, and perhaps the daddy of them all as far as supplements are concerned. Matrix Alpha-Test is an all in one protein blend, which is designed around testosterone boosting science. This then creates a better anabolic state.

This is how you voted.

Reflex Nutrition Natural Whey: 14.71%

Sports Kitchen 2:5:1 Recovery Meal: 13.24%
