Chi 3 Goji Berry Energy Shot

chi-3-gogi-berry-energyI’ve realized something recently: XS Energy is actually quite a special company. To my knowledge, they were the first to sell energy products in a multi-level marketing scheme.

In retrospect, it looks as if they’ve pioneered what has become a very popular business. Just like the Advocare and Nuvo-E products I’ve recently reviewed, Chi-3, the shot I’m reviewing for you here, is sold through average people who are trying to make an extra buck.

So, is Chi 3 just another marketing product for you to gamble your money on in sales, or does it actually work? The answer is yep, you guessed it, in the following paragraphs.

Taste

Chi 3 isn’t all too bad. It has a little bit of an energy shot bite, but for the most part it’s smooth and almost creamy. Kind of like chai tea milky-creamy. Is that making sense? No? Well it’s all I’ve got.

Ingredients

Chi 3 is working with 2,000% B6 and 8,333% B12 as the big guns. On top of that, we have two blends that contain the likes of 100mg caffeine from green tea leaf, taurine, N-Acetyl-L-tyrosine, L-Phenylalanine, and Glucuronolactone. I think they made that last one up.

Effect

If you wake up in the morning and are on the verge of collapsing at your desk; if you’re driving late at night with weighted eyelids; if you’re pulling an all-night study session – reaching for Chi 3 is suicide.

As Chi 3 reps will tell you, however, it’s not formulated to fight bloody battles with your lagging brain. I believe it’s made for the greater purpose of riding shotgun with a mind that’s already successfully performing basic operations. When I sampled the shot with this in mind, it was mildly impressive. My attention to my surroundings seemed a little more wholesome.

Verdict

Chi 3’s makers have done a good job picking a direction to differentiate themselves from other energy products. In reality, though, all this looks to be good for is making aggressive anti-*Red Bull etc.* statements that are polished with choice words. I say that because Chi-3 offers a boost comparable to a good breakfast or couple slaps to your face while listening to a favorite album. If that’s your thing, then just ignore my thoughts and give it a try.
