Five years ago RX was born in a simple kitchen. As a fitness movement was washing across America, two best friends realized there needed to be a more nutritional option in the world of protein bars.

They are not a brand backed by flashy marketing and big-time investors. They are simple friends trying to build a simple business that provides the world with healthy options to benefit you and your health.

Due to the fact that they come in a fairly vast flavor variety, it is likely you will be able to find at least a few options that you truly love the taste of. It has been noted by several people that they do not find these bars to be overly sweet. This is likely due to the fact that they use natural sugar instead of artificial sweeteners. A typical complaint about the taste of a ton of protein bars is the aftertaste. We are happy to report this does not seem to be an issue with this product.

This is a bit different than some that are extremely grainy and crumble apart easily.

The most sugar you will be consuming when you give this product a try is fifteen-grams. This, naturally, will depend on which flavor variety you decide to go with. Fifteen-grams is a bit more than you usually see and there are certainly options that contain less. It's important to understand that if it contains a very small amount of sugar it more than likely contains artificial sweeteners. This product does not contain any artificial ingredients which are why you are seeing a higher content of sugar. The fact that this product has natural sugars does mean that you will have a much better taste and your body will be able to use that sugar for fuel to help you maintain energy levels.


Whenever we eat a snack or a meal we gain energy. Our body uses food as fuel and that fuel gives us the energy we need to have productive days. The increase in protein also helps aid your overall energy levels, especially where your muscles are concerned. When you boost your protein level your muscles will perform better. You will notice less fatigue and your recovery time between sets will speed up. The reduction of fatigue will allow you to more easily reach the end of each set. With stronger and longer workout sessions you will obviously show better results. The increased energy will also help throughout your day regardless of the activity you are participating in. From work to a long run, everyone can appreciate a bit more energy during their day.


Each bar is a serving and they are fifty-two grams each. The child size version of this product is thirty-three grams. These are pretty average sizes for products in this class. They are large enough to keep your hunger at bay but not so large that you feel too full. You will have some options when it comes to how many bars per box you are receiving. They are available in a twelve, sixteen, twenty-four, or thirty pack. Once you know how well you like this product you then have the option to stock up easily.

This is obviously something consumers are very happy about considering the cost of supplements including this type, pre-workouts, whey proteins, and others.

Side Effects

Protein bars are one of the safest supplements to consume. They carry very few side effects and this one appears to carry even fewer than most. Due to the fact that they consume so few ingredients, you don't have as much to worry about. They do contain egg whites so it is possible that you will experience an increase in gas. This is very minor. It is important to note that this product contains tree nuts and this can be a serious problem for those of you that are allergic to them. There have not been any reports of negative side effects from this product, however, that does not mean you will not experience any. Protein supplements are known for causing some people nausea, upset stomach, diarrhea, or bloating.


There is a multitude of advantages in adding a high-protein product into your routine. Proteins get broken down into Amino Acids which are the building blocks of our muscles. These Amino Acids will promote recovery times not only between sets but also after endurance training exercise. With a reduction in soreness, you will be able to work out more frequently. This will, naturally, lead to more fat and weight loss. Protein also aids in muscle growth and maintenance. So, when you are working your muscles a bit too hard you will not suffer as much degradation from it. In terms of your diet, this is a very healthy option that is not sporting a ton of calories that will be hard to fit into your routine. You will be getting a clean, healthy, and good tasting product that will make achieving your weight loss and fitness goals easier than ever before.

The fact that this one doesn't really have any that are of major importance is amazing.
