In past articles we spoke of the dangers of artificial sweeteners. It seems as though finding low calorie or no calorie drinks is quite the hassle if you are trying to avoid the poison (known as aspartame). The key to low calorie drinks is finding ones that contain stevia; the only true calorie free, non detrimental sweetener. However, finding these products isn’t easy! My local 7 Eleven had this drink with a cool bottle, along with some much needed caffeine for my crazy split shifts; all without the poison!
At first glance you are drawn to the interesting looking cap. I had no idea what I was buying at the time, but this cool innovative drink spells it out for you on the lable. With a simple twist of the cap a powder substance is released into the water. Here’s what it contains…
- Tea catechins
- Acai Extract
- Pomegranate extract
- Tea polyphenols
- Aloe Vera
- Bilberry Extract
- Coenzyme Q10
The bottle claims that over time vitamins lose their potency in water. By releasing the ingredients right before you drink it you get 100% of the potency of the ingredients. In just 30 days the tea catechins lose 53% potency.
The drink tastes excellent and it does give you that much needed boost of energy. Try it out. Visit their site to find locations selling it near you! Go to www.activatedrinks.com
