EBOOST Acai Pomegranate


This is the first product I tried out of my Holiday VoxBox '12.  My sample was the Acai Pomegranate Natural Energy Booster, and I drank it around noon on a week day.

My Sample:
Acai Pomegranate Natural Energy Boost



Eboost comes as a powder boost or energy shot, that uses real ingredients like Green Tea, vitamins, minerals, and Stevia leaf extract in place of sugar. It supports the natural functioning of the immune system while improving your mood and focus, without a crash.  It comes in 4 flavors: Super Berry, Pink Lemonade, Orange, and Acai Pomegranate.  You can order this product through their website or find them at your local Vitamin Shoppe or Nordstrom's,  Their website also has a store locator. $1.40 is the average cost of a packet when you buy a box of 20 on their website, which I find to be a reasonable cost.


First I want to say that I LOVE the idea of packets of powered energy drinks.  Sometimes I HATE the highly concentrated flavor and sweetness of sugar/substitutes in most energy drinks that I have had.  Secondly, that I don't like acai and pomegranate, so I'm going to try the best I can not to let that influence my review of this product.  I'm not a berry flavor girl.  I will definitely be trying the orange and pink lemonade flavors (yum!)

The only thing you have to do with the packet, is add a 12 oz. bottle of water and drink.  My drink wasn't too sweet, but I didn't like the berry flavor.  I was able to dilute it some by adding extra water and they helped a bit.  I drank the entire glass in about 5 minutes, and 10 minutes after that I started feeling the effects.  I was able to concentrate on one thing instead of getting distracted like I always seem to be.  EBOOST didn't make my heart race like other energy supplement brands.  It also wasn't overly intense feelings I sometimes get with other energy drinks.  This would be perfect to drink while working out to go that extra mile.  This product is gluten and soy free (bonus), sugar free and ONLY 10 calories! Which is really important because I prefer the sugar free energy drinks to skip on the extra calories.  I didn't have much sleep the night before I had this, so I was tired when I drank my sample.  I got a few good hours of work done.  I drank this at noon, and at 3:30 pm, I was able to lay down to take a quick nap.

The best thing I liked about this product was that it was only 10 calories, and worked without the crash.  The worst thing was that I didn't like the Flavor, although I wouldn't rule out the product.  I definitely want to try the Orange and Pink Lemonade before I rule out EBOOST as product.
