E-Boost: Energy Mix Review

eboostYou know, back in the day water used to be all the rage.  It was refreshing, usually tasted good, and under the right circumstances, was totally free.  And oh, it kept you alive.

These days, water is downright boring.  What, no pretty colors or packaging?  No flavor?  No energy?!  Boo! E-Boost agrees with all of those shortcomings, and has offered water an upgrade with their own special version of Kool-Aid.  “Ohh ya!!”

Taste

I received two flavors to review: Mandarin Orange and Pink Lemonade.  Both of them fail to make water consumption as enjoyable an experience as the bottled pre-flavored waters already rampant in the beverage market.  Their flavor descriptions are accurate, but overall the flavors are hollow and watered down.

You may be thinking to yourself, “he just called a water-based energy mix ‘watered down’ what an idiot.. duh of course it is!”  If I may beg of your mercy a moment, I meant to say what I did.  Take Crystal Light, for example.  Drop one of their flavor packets into a bottle of water and the taste is completely transformed.  You can tell you’re drinking a flavored bottle of water, but the flavor is robust enough to radically modify the experience for the better.  You truly have a flavored bottle of water.

E-Boost packets offer more of a tainted water flavor that leaves you wishing for more.  Kind of like using only half the Kool-Aid packet in your pitcher.

Ingredients

Hitting what I believe is an energy product record 5 spots from the Periodic Table of Elements we have Copper, Chromium, Potassium, Selenium, and Zinc.  On the less perplexing side, there’s 4,166% of your B12 DV, 100% of B6, 75% Niacin, and a proprietary blend with green tea leaf and grape seed extract.

Effect

If you’re driving along and hit Empty, don’t expect to find a spare tank of gas in the trunk.  Now, this of course pertains to the review metaphorically.  I’m not actually sending ill-wishes your way for debilitating car problems.  Jeeze you’re being rough on me today.

Seriously, though, E-Boost offers a light tickle to your senses.  It’s just not enough for my lifestyle.

Verdict

In case I bounced around this review too much, I’ll give it to you straight.  My conclusion is that E-Boost comes up short in both flavor and energy.  You may have noticed from the ingredients section that this product has other nutritional aspirations, but that’s not the kind of review you came here for.

    lol. literally, lol

    lol mob, agreed. Maybe it comes in powder form so health nuts can mix it with water, and energy fiends can snort it instead.

    Actually, dehydration poses a drain on energy, and drinking water can give one a slight energy boost.

    And I may be a wild, caffeine-crazed, amphetamine smoking lunatic (which I am not), but snorting potassium just sounds downright bad for you. Snorting pure caffeine powder is much healthier and more effective (not to mention loads cheaper than energy drinks!)

    DO NOT DRINK EBOOST!!! I used to work for one of the financial backers of the product & he is an awful person. PLEASE do not endorse this product, because if you do you are endorsing a millionaire who treats people lower than dirt & has no regard for anyone but himself!!!

  • john tizzy

    I have to disagree. I work out 7 days a week and work 15 hour days and I have tried every single energy product under the sun and not only do I get BETTER & LONGER SUSTAINED ENERGY with EBOOST I also feel more alert and focused and NO CRASH. I actually don;t mind the taste and the truth is I personally take these products to improve the quality of my life and I swear by EBOOST and everyone I have introduced it to has fallen in love with it as well so I am going to highly recommend it!

    I have to disagree with your review. Eboost has everything I look for in a supplement. A clean, long lasting, no-crash energy boost from natural ingredients helps me feel alert and focused without the jitters (Something that other products cannot provide). It does not rely on harmful ingredients like guarana and taurine. The subtle flavor can be modified depending on the amount of water you add to the supplement (DUH!). Best of all, Eboost uses ingredients that are actually capable of boosting your mood- like 5-HTP. So, before you jump to conclusions from this poorly documented review I would try Eboost for yourself.
