HEED - Best of MTBR

The reviews are in—Hammer Nutrition’s HEED wins a 2010 Best of MTBR Award. HEED has won the Best of MTBR Award for the last five years! With more than 70 sports nutrition products reviewed, HEED was the only product to receive a 5 out of 5 rating.

Hammer Nutrition HEEDHow does MTBR choose the best products?
The following is reprinted from MTBR.com: MTBR.com was created to get feedback from real cyclists on the products and equipment that they use. Good, bad, bottom line, is it worth it? Those are the top questions that MTBR poses to each of their users. Every year, they find the best products from the site that consistently win the praises of the consumer. Hence, the Best Of Awards!

Winners were selected by the highest rated products that met a minimum number of reviews for each category.

It doesn’t matter if the manufacturer is well known or a new kid on the block, that’s what makes this award unique. If the product works and performs well, then the consumers will reward it.

  • As a former cyclist (sprinter) I can attest how HEED has helped me on many training runs. Prior to discovering HEED in 2008, my quads would cramp on long rides. Since HEED, not ONE cramp in the years since. Thanks Hammer Nutrition!!

  • Hello Connie – I apologize for not replying to your question sooner… I did not receive an email me to let me know that there was a question on one of our blog posts (I don’t automatically receive notification when a question is posed on one of our blog posts, but it’s some that we’re fixing now).

    Anyway, this link on the FAQ section on our website – http://www.hammernutrition.com/knowledge/how-is-strong-xylitol-and-stevia-strong-used-in-your-products.13118.html – discusses both xylitol and stevia, their positive effect on oral health, and why we use them as the sweeteners in HEED and Recoverite.

    A couple other links discuss xylitol’s beneficial effects on oral health:


    As far as stevia is concerned, here are a couple of links that discuss this sweetener:


    Note that I found a number of websites that refer to the studies done at Purdue University’s Dental Science Research Group regarding stevia’s positive effects on oral health; however, I have not seen the information on the actual studies. I’m sure they’re somewhere on the internet but I haven’t had enough time to search for them.

    I hope this information will help answer your question, Connie!

    Sincerely –

  • I love Steve’s answer. Someone wants to make sure the details are available, not hidden. Much obliged.
