Product review: Energade Sports drink (concentrated)

Hey y'all
I bring you another product today. Its the Energade sports drink. Its an energy drink for fitness lovers. I was walking down the 'drinks/juice aisle' in Shoprite, perusing stuff as usual. Then, I discovered this drink, tucked away in a corner. Hmmm, first it was the price that caught my eyes, I screamed! "what kind of drink will cost N1100?" "What's inside biko?" So i picked it up, lo and behold it was concentrated. "Oh ok Whew! Much berra".

What is it ?:
  • Its a sports drink or energy drink as you may prefer to call it.
  • Its made in South Africa.
  • It comes in different flavors.

Per 100ML Serving, you get: 

  1. Energy 139kj that's 2% of an adults guideline daily amount.
  2. Sugars 8.6g that's 10% of an adults guideline daily amount.
  3. Fat; 0.0g that's 0% of an adults guideline daily amount.
  4. Saturates; 0.0g that's 0% of an adults guideline daily amount.
  5. Salt; 0.1g that's 1% of an adults guideline daily amount.

What does it do and how does it work?:
  1. It a workout fuel.
  2. It gives you energy and refreshes you as you workout.
  3. For the concentrated version (it also has ready to drink), you have to dilute with water. The ratio shout be 1:4. That is 1 part Energade to 4 part water.
  4. "For peak performance, mix accurately." Always better mixed with ice or very cold water. 
My 500ml cup

With Ice.

What I like about it:
  1. Its affordable. It costs N1100 for 1 liter and it makes 5 liters when diluted. 1 Bottle can make 9 to 10 500ml cups for me. I save N900 when compared to other energy drinks.
  2. Its really tasty and comes in different flavors.
  3. Its really low in calorie. 1 500ml mixture contains about 150 calories.
  4. It gives me energy and refreshes me while working out, without speeding up my heart rate. It doesn't affect my appetite either. I feel hungry as usual after a good workout session.
  5. My favorite flavor is the "mixed berry"

What I don't like?
  1. I wish there were more fruity flavors! Lol (greedy babe)

Have you tried this drink before and did you like it? Please let me know. 

You guys need to try it, don't drink it right before bed time though, it might interfere with your sleep. Don't say I didn't warn you, when you start shining eyes....Hahaha! It is sold at Shoprite, Check the juice/drinks aisle.  Go with enough money to buy 2 bottles, you might not see it there again, you know how all these imported stuff can be. Checkout their website below.  Take care and God bless.
