G Shot or Gogee Antioxidant + Energy Shots are all natural energy shots manufactured by BAZIC PRODUCTS/BANGKIT U.S.A. . I was sent a few samples by the company to try out.
G Shot Review
"Why this is fancy!", was my first impression of the energy shot. They come in these small glass bottles with colorful labeling that includes pictures of brocoli and cranberries. (Although neither are in the shot and I'll cover that in a minute). There are two flavors available and I sampled both;
- Green Tea - This one tasted like a concentrated version of a berry/tea drink. It was slightly sweet, yet a little tart. It was pretty easy to drink and with no nasty aftertaste.
- Goji Berry - This one was berry flavored and still had a bit of a green tea taste as well, but it was less prominent.
Unlike other energy shots, G Shot can be sipped and not just downed quickly.
Does Natural Energy Work?
I've sampled a few natural energy products in the past and usually they are lacking in the taste element or the energy element. G Shot seemed to be pretty solid in both areas. I tried the shot prior to my workouts and also just as I worked at my desk. In both cases it provided steady, focused energy, which allowed me to complete my tasks a little more quickly. Although the Gogi flavored shot is a bit unclear as to where the caffeine is coming from, it seems that the caffeine in both shots is from green tea. This provides caffeine but also the added benefit of the amino acid L-theanine. A shot that's like eating 4 servings of brocoli or 1.5 glasses of cranberry juice is something I feel good about drinking as I'm pretty health conscience. I was pleased to see stevia used as the sweetener as well.
Wait, Not so Fast
The only downside to G shot would be found by those hardcore caffeine junkies. At just 80mg of caffeine, it probably wouldn't phase them.
