|I like the berry flavor better than|
the lemon-lime flavor
I was aware of several great work-out energizers, but didn't want to load my body with sugar first thing in the morning. I looked up VegaSport, but couldn't justify all the sugar their products have, even though it is natural sugar, and their formulas were the best I had seen. That's why I was so happy when I saw that they had come out with a stevia-sweetened energy powder that was only 5 calories per packet, and mixed easily in water. This morning I got up at my usual time, but had trouble motivating myself to really take off. I mixed the Acai Berry flavor into 6 oz of filtered water and gulped it down. It did have a slightly mineral taste, but was surprisingly tasty compared to most I had tried. I stretched, put on my running shoes, and took off! Our house is half way up on two mile hill that can be pretty steep at times, and I decided to take my usual route - "up and around." I literally sprinted one mile uphill! I felt great! I didn't have time for my usual 3 1/2 miles because I worked extra early, so I did 2, but instead of getting a drop in my energy levels, I kept my energy up all day.
I appreciate that it doesn't give me a "buzz" or an energy "serge," but helps me keep my stamina and concentration. I'm also caffeine sensitive, and this didn't bother me, so I'm happy about that too!
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars!
Note: I've been conditioning my leg muscles for a while, so this supplement only gave me the energy and stamina. It didn't make me suddenly fit, or pump me up.
