Supplement Review: SFH Fortified and Fuel Protein


Fortified Formula™ is a whey protein formula derived from a grass fed, free range cows, which are never treated with antibiotics or bovine growth hormones. This formula is designed for muscle and strength building. Fortified is a safe, all-natural mass builder. Fortified Formula™ may also decrease your hunger and increase your energy.

Phenylalanine and tyrosine added to enhance muscle growth.

Leucine and isoleucine, key BCAAs may increase muscle volume, strength and synthesis.

Low glycemic index cherry powder for sustained energy.


Our newest addition to the SFH Whey Family. We have taken two great products (SFH Daily Balance & In-Race) and created one formula to use anytime (except post workout). SFH FUEL is made for everyone.
The ultimate anytime protein to fuel your daily needs. SFH FUEL combines non-denatured whey protein derived from A2 milk (from grass-fed, free range cows), coconut fat (MCTs) and apple pectin (a mixture of medium glycemic carbohydrates in a matrix of natural fiber).
Apple Pectin: is a complex carbohydrate rich in water soluble fibers. The fibers help to slow the absorption of high glycemic carbohydrates and sugars.
MCTs (medium chain triglycerides): are high energy fats. They are never stored and are burned as a fuel to produce 4-5x more energy than a sugar molecule and do not spike the release of insulin. These fats are broken down to ketone bodies which are the preferred fuel for our brains and hearts.
Contains: Milk

They both weren’t bad, I like the additives Fuel has Apple Pectin and Fortified has Cherry Powder. You can’t taste either, but it is cool it’s in there. I wish you could taste a little cherry in it that would be awesome! No one has cherry flavor. Cherries are supposed to contain something that helps burn fat.

The Fuel clumped a little in water and was hard to mix and it made me gag when I got a mouthful of dry powder clumps! But the flavor wasn’t bad.

Still the star of SFH is their Fish oil! Order the Omega-3 Oil and if you need protein pick one of their many options! They each ave a beneficial additive!

I’m always subjecting myself to stuff I don’t want to put in my mouth yuk! Here it goes again!! Liquid fish oil from SFH SO3 Super Omega 3 Tangerine flavor!

It really didn’t have a taste. It has a strong tangerine scent and the consistency is like eating canola oil.

Surprising it wasn’t thick, like the time I had liquid lecithin and couldn’t get it off the roof off mouth! Eek God yuk!!

Buy this stuff! And I have a surprise for you! I would love to try this!!

At SFH, our goal is to provide you with a means to know if you’re taking enough omega-3 oil for optimal benefit.
SFH has incorporated the HS Omega-3 Index Assay® as a critical element in understanding how dose and formulation affect omega-3 fatty acid incorporation into cell membranes.

Know exactly your omega-3 fatty acid levels in your cell membranes with a simple finger prick.
With the use of our assay, you can know where you stand in terms of omega-3 protection against inflammation, heart disease and triglyceride lowering.
Current science suggest that an omega-3 fatty acid percentage between 10 and 12 % is ideal. Anything less than 8 % is not good and needs corrective action.
Know where you stand and then receive an email from with suggestions, if necessary, for diet and omega-3 dose modification.
Assays are performed in a CLIA approved laboratory and are emailed directly to you and SFH.
Please note that these statements are based on our most recent scientific knowledge. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any diseases.

That looks awesome! How does it work? Is it accurate? Are we taking enough? Is there a thing as taking too much? I would like to know!

This product is awesome!

I used coconut oil on my carb cycling days: Wed, Sat & Sun

I like this for my Low Carb days: Mon, Tues, Thurs & Fri

**Update** April 11th 2014
Do not get the mint flavor!!! You can taste the fish oil!! Yuk!! I thought it would be the best, because mint is usually a powerful taste! They didn’t put enough mint!

The Tangerine had absolutely no taste what so ever of fish oil! In fact if I didn’t see the Tangerine bottle and someone told me it was fish oil, I would say get the f?!k out of here, it’s that good!

Buy the Tangerine by the case full!

Happiness in life is where it’s at! When you look forward to doing something, you are more likely to do it. When you hate something, you dread doing it and it becomes a torture to do it everyday! That’s what the mint fish oil has become! I know I can taste the sardine oil and it’s really bad!!! It is like a torture that I definitely do not enjoy!

The tangerine, as I don’t typically like orange flavor products, (if they didn’t send it, I would have never purchased it!) was great! I wouldn’t mind taking that daily as it had absolutely no fish flavor! Knowing what it tastes like now with the mint, I would gladly get the tangerine daily! It’s unlike fish oil pills! It doesn’t need your liver to break down the pill casing, it goes straight into your system! You can’t ask for or receive a better fish oil supplement.

Thank you SFH if you didn’t send the Tangerine, I would have missed out on an incredible product! After tasting the mint, I would have said hell no this stuff is terrible and missed out on a revolutionary product in superior human body health!

Lets look at the facts:

What Are Omega-3 Fatty Acids?
Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fatty layers of cold-water fish and shellfish, plant and nut oils, English walnuts, flaxseed, algae oils, and fortified foods. You can also get omega-3s as supplements. Food and supplement sources of these fatty acids differ in the forms and amounts they contain.

There are the two main types of omega-3 fatty acids:

Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These are plentiful in fish and shellfish. Algae often provides only DHA.
Short-chain omega-3 fatty acids are ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). These are found in plants, such as flaxseed. Though beneficial, ALA omega-3 fatty acids have less potent health benefits than EPA and DHA. You’d have to eat a lot to gain the same benefits as you do from fish.

Fishing for Facts: What Studies Reveal About Omega-3s and Fish
In addition to omega-3s, fish is high in protein, vitamins, and minerals. And, it’s low in saturated fat.

Hundreds of studies suggest that omega-3s may provide some benefits to a wide range of diseases: cancer, asthma, depression, cardiovascular disease, ADHD, and autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.

How could fatty acids be so beneficial for so many different conditions?

“All these diseases have a common genesis in inflammation,” says Joseph C. Maroon, MD, professor and vice chairman of the department of neurological surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Co-author of Fish Oil: The Natural Anti-Inflammatory, Maroon says that in large enough amounts omega-3’s reduce the inflammatory process that leads to many chronic conditions.

For these and other reasons, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the American Heart Association, and the American Dietetic Association recommend eating two 8-ounce servings of fish each week.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids as Brain Food
DHA is one of the most prevalent fatty acids in the brain. This could partly explain why our brains do better with a greater supply. A Rush Institute for Healthy Aging study analyzed fish-eating patterns of more than 800 men and women, ages 65 to 94. Those eating fish at least once a week were much less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than those who turned up their nose at it.

Another study of more than 2,000 Norwegians, ages 70 to 74, used food-frequency questionnaires to evaluate consumption of five different types of fish. The researchers then conducted cognitive tests. Those who ate fish of any kind were two to three times less likely to perform poorly on the tests.

Investigators at the University of Kuopia, Finland, and at Harvard Medical School looked at the incidence of silent brain damage in about 3,500 people age 65 or older. Eating tuna or other non-fried fish was associated with a 25% lower risk of these abnormalities, which are linked to higher rates of stroke and cognitive decline.

While omega-3 fatty acids have a number of benefits, these studies do not prove a cause and effect, only that there is an association between eating fatty acids in fish and the risks of Alzheimer’s disease or the risks of dementia.

Cancer Prevention With Omega-3s
Among 1,300 Swedish men, those who ate salmon and similar fish, such as herring or mackerel, had a much lower risk of developing prostate cancer than those who didn’t eat fish. Those eating five or more servings a week had a 64% lower risk of the disease.

Omega-3s for Healthier Arteries
Following postmenopausal women in Finland and the United States, investigators found that those eating two or more servings of fish each week had healthier arteries than women who ate less than two servings. Benefits were even greater in those eating tuna or another type of dark fish at least once a week.

Reaping the Best Benefits of Fish and Omega-3s

You can take several steps to get the best benefits from fish.

Deep-six the omega-6s. Foods high in polyunsaturated fats, such as soybean, corn, sunflower, or safflower oils hurt you in more ways than one.

Apparently these omega-6 fatty acids, when eaten in excess, can reduce your body’s ability to metabolize the beneficial omega-3 fatty acids.

Cast about for healthy canned tuna. Think all tuna is created equal? Think again. Choose canned light tuna instead of tuna steaks or albacore tuna. It tends to have less mercury. Albacore may contain three times the mercury of chunk light tuna. Check fish guides for the latest information about foods low in toxins but high in omega-3. Two good online sources are:

Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch web site
Environmental Defense Fund web site

Fish Oils May Be Lifesavers
Do the sniff test. Buy the freshest fish you can find. The longer a fish is exposed to oxygen, says Bost, the more it loses some of its omega-3 benefits.

Cook it up right. You can’t remove toxins by cooking, but you minimize exposure to PCBs by removing fish skin and surface fat before eating.

So Web MD says to get rid of the Omega 6’s as they inhibit the Omega 3’s and promote inflammation.

SFH has already done that for you! And it’s liquid and bioavailable for your body!

What I would like to know is why Sardines, Herring and Anchovies and not Salmon?

Answer from SFH:
We use Sardines/herring and anchovies due to their low/non existent mercury level.

The chocolate and vanilla are both good, but do not hide the taste as well either.

My suggestion to anyone reading is: but the Tangerine by the case full! And use it Daily! Invest in your health the smartest way you can! Liquid fish oil that doesn’t taste like fish at all! Also no fishy burps!

It smells amazing! Fresh vanilla smell! The powder is super fine and mixes easily.

It contains sunflower lecithin instead of soy lecithin to help it mix. Something Protein 17 could have added.

It contains natural vanilla but not enough! Could use a tad bit more Vanilla!

It tastes ok. Not as good as Body Logix and no where near as bad as unflavored! It still had that distinct natural whey sour milk taste but the vanilla helped a lot! The Body Logix Vanilla had it a little also.

The chocolate is slightly better tasting! It wasn’t too bad!

This product is good, but it’s not the best thing that SFH has to offer! Just wait and see!! There’s more 😉
