Earlier this month I ran out of vitamins so I put in an order at Well.ca. While ordering I thought I’d try out a few energy boosting supplements I saw a nutritionist Miranda Malisani recommend on an episode of the Marilyn Dennis Show. Here are three that I’ve been giving a try this week:
SISU To Go Ester-C Energy Boost – Lemon Lime
30 Packets – $13.64 CAD
Claim: These packets combine Ester-C and energy-supporing B vitamins along with minerals, and electrolytes to help keep you feeling at peak performance. Just add water and drink.
Taste: At first I mixed this into a small glass of water and the taste was awful. Second time around I mixed it into a full bottle of water and the taste improved drastically. It’s like a dull lemonade that could use some sweetness.
Result: I felt good about this one, but it made me feel so bloated and gassy. I’ll have to wait and see if this is something my gut will get used to. I’m not sure yet if I’d buy this again.
Amazing Grass Green Superfood – Original
480 g (60 Servings) – $49.99
Claim: This green powder will help you meet your required daily servings of fruit and veggies. It naturally detoxifies and boosts your immune system, plus it comes in a full range of flavors that taste great.
Taste: In a glass of water it tastes like leafy death. In a glass of juice or in a shake it’s great!
Result: Again, this might be my imagination, but I just felt great about drinking some veggie powder. I’ll definitely buy this again.
Vega Sugar-Free Energizer – Lemon Lime
136 g – $44.99
Claim: With ten synergistic ingredients and only 5 calories it is a healthy alternative to coffee, giving you both immediate and sustained energy – without the jitters! Not only is it a great pick-me-up, but also it can help you focus and boost energy so you can power through a yoga class or lower intensity exercise.
Taste: Pretty similar to SISU’s muddy lemonade. Not bad in a glass full of water or juice
Result: This didn’t make me feel like I was going to deflate from my butt like the SISU product. I felt a distinct pick me up after taking this in the afternoon. I’d definitely buy it again and keep it at my desk at work for the 3 o’clock slump.
