Formula168 Lift Energy Drink
Formula168 Lift Energy Drink is a carbonated energy supplement made by Formula168.
It's intended to be different than other energy drinks which rely on large doses of caffeine to produce an immediate boost in perceived energy. Formula168, instead, focuses on increasing a more sustainable lift over time.
Formula168 Lift Review
The company recently sent us some free samples for review.
I was initially intrigued by Formula168 because of the relatively low caffeine level the product contains. This is a huge departure from the mainstream energy drinks on the market.
The flavor of Formula168 Lift is nice. It's a fairly sweet blueberry flavor that is easy to drink.
The sweetness of the drink is enhanced using zero-calorie stevia which produces just a slight aftertaste.
Ingredients and Effect
Lift contains a whole array of supplements promoted to increase energy levels and stamina.
Vitamin C; Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12; L-Methyfolate; CoQ10, Grape Seed Extract; Organic Green Coffee Bean Extract; L-Carnitine Tartrate; L-Theanine; Pine Bark Extract; Wild Lingzhi Extract (Reishi Mushroom) make up the drink's extensive supplement list.
A therapeutic dose of caffeine for most people is 20-30 milligrams. This means that this is the lowest amount that will produce any perceived effect on an individual. Since Formula168 Lift contains just 26 mg of caffeine, most will experience very little caffeine benefit from the drink.
Those that never consume caffeine may detect more, but for habitual caffeine users, it will probably go unnoticed.
Therefore, it's hard for me to determine the energy effectiveness of Formula168 Lift. Since it's going for a more long-term energy gain, I would probably have to drink several cans over the course of several days to determine if my energy levels have increased.
When it comes to other energy drink products on the market, I commend Formula168 for taking a different approach. However, for those switching to Formula168 from other energy drinks, it would be wise to make sure they supplement caffeine to equal their usual dosage to avoid nasty withdrawal symptoms that result from drastically reducing daily caffeine consumption.
Formula168 also makes an energy shot which is listed and reviewed here.
