Have you tried Zipfizz Healthy Energy Mix? I’ve heard other people talking about Zipfizz, but had not tried it myself. Until the nice people at Zipfizz sent me some to try. Read on for my Zipfizz review.
From the Zipfizz website: “Zipfizz is an all-natural, great tasting energy drink-mix powder that delivers a powerful charge of micronutrients to the body’s fuel system. It contains no ephedra or other artificial stimulants. Most people experience an immediate, revitalizing burst of energy after taking Zipfizz.”
The sample pack I received contained one of each of the flavors. I tried each of them in place of my usual post-run energy drink.
I found the taste of each drink to be yummy. My favorite were the Berry and the Pink Lemonade. I was least pleased with the Orange Soda flavor, but I don’t like regular Orange Soda. I have heard people say that they love that flavor in particular.
In small print on the side of the Zipfizz tube is the information: “Contains Caffiene”. Upon further exploration of the Zipfizz website, I found this information: “It has 100 mgs of caffeine from natural sources of green tea and Guarana. That’s about one-fourth the caffeine in a Tall Starbucks coffee (375 mg) and less than two
Excedrin tablets (130 mg).”
Personally, I’m okay with caffiene. I usually have 3 cups of coffee during the day (first thing in the morning, a 2nd later in the morning and in the early afternoon with a snack). The first time I had a Zipfizz and the rest of my regular coffee, I was quite overloaded on the caffiene. However, on other occasions, if I cut out a cup of the coffee when I had a Zipfizz, I was fine. So, take note of that if you are sensitive to caffiene.
I really enjoyed the mild carbonation in the Zipfizz. It was definitely refreshing after a workout.
A little silliness – during one of my workouts, running on a treadmill, I had brought a Zipfizz in the cute water bottle that I was given. About halfway through my run, the gas had expanded to the point that the lid of the container popped off like a champagne cork. It was like a little celebration for my workout.
Petey wanted to try some Zipfizz.
I will definitely keep some Zipfizz on hand.
Thank you to the people at Zipfizz for sending me some samples to try and to share this information with you. Disclaimer: I received the samples at no cost and was asked to review the product – I was not required to write a positive review, all opinions are my own.
