This is a review of NDX Natural Dynamix energy, performance & recovery supplements.
“Being an athlete is extremely taxing on the human body. Even with a proper diet it is hard to get all the nutrients you need to perform at your full potential. That’s why we developed a line of activity supplements geared toward athletes. Our Joint DX provides nutritional support for joint health, Endure DX provides essential micronutrients that will make sure you finish strong, and Kramp Krusher Electrolyte Chews are an activity supplement that replaces electrolytes and supports hard training or racing. Try them today and take one step closer to your goals.
I also learned that these products are: “vegan, nothing artificial & gluten free.”
“Endure DX™ was created to help endurance athletes achieve optimum performance.

Natural Dynamic (NDX) is a brand that reached out to be to try their energy products. At first glance, they seem like a neat, readymade source of energy to have on hand for perhaps some intense training streaks or just everyday life that requires a little extra boost.
I’ll be frank. I’m a REAL supplement snob. I have used what I believe to be the very best organic, raw, non-gmo, whole-food based supplements and I am familiar with what the ingredient lists look like on those products. You’ll see ingredients like “organic beet root powder” and “organic moringa powder.” That’s what I want to see in a product I’m going to keep coming back to. Ingredients that I recognize, that don’t sound scary and that I know my body will digest and assimilate.
That said, these products are better than many–just not quite up to par with where I’m at. I’m not saying they do not “perform” or do not help for the intended purpose (I found that I did experience a pretty good, sustained feeling of energy from the Endure DX and a added boost & replenishment during outdoor, sweaty workouts from the electrolyte chews), but I just demand super-duper-awesome ingredient lists for myself.
A positive about the energy chews is that I think the idea is stellar. I brought a few packs of these to help fuel my 12-year old volleyball team (they’re now national champs! #proudcoach) during a local tournament and all of them liked the way they taste. Needless to say, sometimes getting the youngins to like what they’re eating is a feat in itself. I just wish the ingredients were organic, whole-food based and recognizable.
I appreciate being able to try these products and will keep them on my horizon as I’m sure they will evolve and continue to improve their “formulations.”
