NakedAde Electrolyte Sticks and Grass Fed Whey Protein Bars Review

Naked Bars Chocolate Fudge

Naked Bars and NakedAde from Naked Nutrition.



The Naked Nutrition company, based out of Coral Gables, Florida, has stepped up its game in the creativity department recently by creating several new products designed for optimum nutrition for both fitness-minded and holistic-health minded consumers.

Recently, I had the opportunity to try two of their newest products: NakedAde electrolyte sticks (fruit punch flavor), and the Naked Bar, a grass-fed whey protein bar packed with both protein and fiber.

While these two products aren’t 100% organic, they are non-GMO and have a lot to offer in terms of clean, health and energy-boosting nutrition, and I came away duly impressed by both of these products.

My Experience With Electrolyte Powders

Recently while listening to NFL icon Tom Brady’s audiobook ‘The TB12 Method: How to Do What You Love, Better and for Longer,’ I learned a tremendous amount about the benefits of mineral supplements, especially when added to drinking water.

Brady, a seven-time Super Bowl champion, won his 7th ring last season as a 43-year-old quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a feat unheard of in the National Football League.

The book described Brady’s obsession with electrolytes, and how he drinks them in his water every morning before heading off to practice.

Since then, I have sought out electrolyte powders and drinks in several different forms: Liquid IV, Vitamin Water, Vega brand mineral packets from the health food store, and even mineral supplements from superfood companies.

They all varied in quality and efficacy, but I quickly learned that mineral supplements are the real deal when it comes to enhancing hydration while drinking less water.

I’ve always been the type of person who finds it easier to drink down a carbonated drink, mineral water or a sports drink with added minerals in comparison to plain water, and I sensed that there was something special and memorable about Brady’s minerals-in-water enhanced routine.


NakedAde Electrolyte Sticks Review (Fruit Punch Flavor)

The recently-released, signature electrolyte product from Naked Nutrition, NakedAde is sold in the form of a pouch that includes 16 electrolyte sticks for adding to your drinking water.

Each stick is 17 grams and 60 calories, with the calories mostly coming from Palatinose, a trademarked ingredient that the company says is low glycemic index in nature.

I definitely didn’t feel any sort of blood sugar spike taking these sticks, but I did feel a boost in energy and hydration.

Other ingredients (all non-GMO) include: Natural Plant Based Flavors, Orange Juice Powder, Non-GMO Maltodextrin, Pink Himalayan Salt, Potassium Chloride, Potassium Citrate, Monk Fruit Extract and Vegetable Juice for Color.

Overall, I really enjoyed these electrolyte sticks. They mix up in seconds and provide a nice little boost of minerals (including 14% of your daily value of sodium), potassium (6% daily value) and maltodextrin.

The maltodextrin ingredient really stood out to me because it’s something I used to seek out during my serious weightlifting days, as it is said to be one of the best ways to replenish your body with fuel after lifting heavy weights or using your muscles in a strenuous way.

Overall I really liked this product and I rate it as one of my favorite mineral stick supplements so far, with less sugar than Liquid IV and more of an invigorating feeling compared to some of the other electrolyte powder sticks I’ve tried.

The NakedAde electrolyte powder sticks can be found on the Naked Nutrition website.

Naked Bar Review (Chocolate Fudge Flavor)

The second product I tried this time around from the Naked Nutrition Company was its new Naked Bar, a protein and fiber-rich chocolate flavored bar that I didn’t know what to think of upon first bite.

After bars number two, three, four, five and so on, the flavor began to grow on me quite a bit.

These Non-GMO bars get their subtle-yet-delicious chocolate fudge flavor from cocoa from a helping heaping of cocoa powder. Each bar has 15 grams of protein and 8 grams of sugar (from rice syrup and grape juice).


These bars out from the rest of the pack in three ways:

1. Naked Nutrition sources their grass-fed whey protein powder from California farms, meaning these cows graze on green grass for far more days out of the year. Most other companies source from Wisconsin, the UK, or New Zealand, which are all colder climates with fewer grazing days.

2. The inclusion of Almond Butter as Ingredient #2, which I am a big fan of since it’s so hard to get healthy fats from nuts consistently, especially in a protein bar or powder.

3. The inclusion of Soluble Corn Fiber as Ingredient #1; although I would strongly prefer that Naked Nutrition only include organic corn in their products, I do enjoy having a protein bar that is rich in fiber like this one.

The inclusion of extra fiber makes these bars much easier on my stomach and digestion compared to other protein bars I have tried.

I would love to see these additions become standard in more protein bars, because they all make a lot of sense from a “macro” nutrition standpoint.

Naked Bars are available on the Naked Nutrition website here.

The Bottom Line on Naked Nutrition Protein and Other Products

As you can tell by the reviews above, this company and its products are really growing on me.

I’ve always been a snob for 100% organic products only, but these products offer a lot of advantages to the health food bars, electrolyte drinks, and protein powders I’ve seen in stores.

I can tell that these products are high quality, and their whey is among the finest I have tried due to its year-round grass-fed status.

If you see these products in stores or online and don’t mind something that is not entirely organic every now and then, I wholeheartedly recommend Naked Nutrition products.

They also offer plenty of organic options including organic rice protein powder, a ‘Naked Whey’ protein powder with only organic coconut sugar and organic cacao as ingredients that I also loved, and plenty of other unique products on their website.

Added bonus: these products are loaded with nutrition and are devoid of fillers judging by everything I’ve tried so far, something that is actually pretty rare even in the organic supplement industry.

This review was written based on samples from Naked Nutrition.
