Glaceau Vitamin Water XXX

Oct 27

Glaceau Vitamin WaterI can just see the commercial now, X-rated vitamin water falling over scantily clad, fit bodies. On a more serious note, there’s a lot of chatter on the web that this is a great flavour of vitamin water. The XXX refers to a triple threat lineup of antioxidants – blueberry, acai berry and pomegranate. The ingredients according to BevNet:

Vapor distilled, deionized water and/or reverse osmosis water, crystalline fructose, citric acid, vegetable juice (color), ascorbic acid (vitamin C), natural flavor, berry and fruit extracts (acai, blueberry, pomegranate and apple), magnesium lactate (electrolyte), calcium lactate (electrolyte), monopotassium phosphate (electrolyte), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine hydrochloride (B6), cyanocobalamin (B12)

A number of 5 star reviews and comments like “Just want to say that i have a blood clotting dissorder and Drinking two of these a day has done what hemotologists have not been able to pinpoint and that is quality of life” really build the reputation of this product and it’s brand.

Buy Acai Roots pulp

Oct 21

Acai Roots PulpTaste the flavor of Acai Roots and let your body feel the difference. For $54.99 you can make over 35 acai bowls or shakes. Per 100 grams of this acai pulp, you get 11% of your daily recommended intake of fiber and 8% of your recommended calcium, plus all the benefits of a healthy dose of the all important free radical fighting antioxidants.

Purchase this acai pulp and other Acai Roots products.

Acai Pulp is one of the best ways to consume acai because it retains most of the antioxidants and nutrients of the acai berry without affecting the taste. After harvested the acai berry must be processed into frozen pulp within 24 hours or less, otherwise it can spoil and loose its nutrients. This is the ongoing challenge many acai products face – something Acai Roots takes very seriously.

A bottle of Jus = 12 bottles of MonaVie?

Oct 16

Take a look at this gigantic comparison chart that Jus uses to compare itself to other “superfood” beverage products. It doesn’t say on the chart what that comparison is, but I’m presuming it’s about the ORAC values of the beverages. Jus hasn’t been high on my radar, but take a look at this testimonial they posted to YouTube. Apart from the sappy music, I can see it being a fairly convincing piece to give Jus a try.

Purple, life’s superdrink

Oct 09

At least that’s the slogan of Purple, who’s drink contains acai berry, blueberry, cranberry, black cherry, pomegranate, black currant and purple plumb. That’s quite the lineup of foods that often sprout up among conversations about antioxidants.  I can’t say I’ve tried this product myself – I haven’t seen it in stores up here in British Columbia, however they do take a very informative approach to marketing their product.

If you look at their website, they have a fairly extensive “science and research” section with an abundance of resources. One such article, titled Natural Purple Pigments In Fruits, Vegetables And Berries, Such As Blueberries, May Help Prevent Obesity, talks about the benefits linked to the purple pigment in fruits. If you’re like me, and you enjoy researching products thoroughly before using them, Purple should cater to your thirst for knowledge. Their nutrition label is posted right on their website – not many acai berry touting products do that.
