I just can’t get enough of healthy energy lately. Leaving the caffeine behind, I am referring to products that have been lifting my mood outside of my coffee cup!
FRS is a line of healthy energy fueled by nature and packed with healthy antioxidants, vitamins, and green tea extract. All products contain Quercetin, which is a natural antioxidant proven to sustain energy, increase endurance, and build immune system support.
I have tried a handful of FRS products before, and admit to being hesitant of the concept of quercetin. After researching, I feel better knowing it is naturally found in many fruits and vegetables including the skins of blueberries, apples and grapes. Also, it is reassuring that FRS products contain only the highest level of purity of quercetin available. Phew!
When I was given the opportunity to try new products from FRS, I quickly jumped on on board. All in favor of healthy energy… say I. IIIIIIIIIII.
What is so special about FRS + Healthy Energy?
FRS produces a full line of products including ready-to-drink beverages, chews, powdered drink mix and concentrate.
The line was created by scientists as a healthy energy beverage for chemotherapy patients. It was later discovered by athletes, and is now used by professional sports teams, wellness experts, and enthusiasts who aim to live a healthy, active lifestyle. Today, products are championed by some of the world’s most elite athletes. (Oh hey, Tim Tebow.)
Healthy energy lifts you up without the crash you can often experience later on from caffeine. Fueled by quercetin and green tea catechins, these products provide more than one hundred percent of the recommended daily intake of seven essential vitamins.
FRS is perfect for everyone, and is not just for athletes and fitness professionals. Anyone looking for natural, healthy, sustained energy can benefit from these products!
Healthy Energy Cans
Energy is always easiest to grab in a can! These Healthy Energy Cans come in regular (90 calories per serving) and low-cal (20 calories per serving) flavors.
As with most products, the flavor of the low-calorie cans were lighter, and a little more watery. I didn’t mind it though. No matter what the flavor, every can had a bright yellow colored liquid you will see in my pictures of the drink mix below. This is strictly from the super antioxidant quercetin, since FRS does not add any color to their products.
I sampled the cans in the morning, on my way to the gym, and even at home while working on the computer.
I preferred the taste of the regular cans over the rest, but liked that the remaining flavors offered less calories for the same amount of energy. I enjoyed all flavors, but here is my preference list from what I am most likely to purchase to least likely:
• Apricot Nectarine
• Low Cal Peach Mango
• Low Cal Citrus Pomegranate
• Low Cal Wild Berry
• Low Cal Orange
The next product I picked up is one I have tried before.
Healthy Energy Drink Mix Powder
I am no stranger to adding powder or flavor to my water bottles. In fact, I would say that I drink more flavored water than regular water these days. I was sent a box of the Low Calorie Orange, and knew exactly what to do with it:
Add a packet of powder to a bottle of water or tightly closed container of water. Shake. Shake some more. Enjoy.
After my last go around with these, I learned to do a little bit of extra shaking to break up the quercetin. If you are one to nurse a water bottle, you might even want to give it a shake or two as you are drinking it to avoid settling and clumping at the bottom.
No worries though, shaking is a small price to pay when considering the immunity boosting antioxidants and energy you are getting out of a single serving!
For only ten calories, I like that I can add it to a water bottle to take with me, (which is a tad less awkward than setting up a can next to my station in Fitness Pilates class!). The powder certainly grew on me this time.
The last type of healthy energy came in the form of a soft chew.
This was my second time trying them, and I was truly excited to find them in my box of goodies.
The package recommends taking two at a time, twice for a full day’s supply. Per usual, I took my morning two and completely forgot about the second two that same day. Instead, I enjoyed them the next day.
I love that these chews are soft (they also have hard shell chews) and that they are individually wrapped. This makes them easy to take with you, if you have a better memory than I do to take the second dose for the day.
I liked the taste of the Pomegranate Blueberry flavor, and would like another stab at trying all four chews in one day! I am intrigued by the other flavors of Pineapple Mango (yum!) Lemon Lime (maybe), and Orange (ehh… maybe). I just might purchase a bag and give it a go!
FRS Healthy Energy can be purchased at major retailers including GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, Kroeger, Whole Foods, Rite Aid, Meijer, Walgreens, Harris Teeter and FRS.com.
