The Battle of the Healthy Energizers!

Business For Home Award

What are the best Healthy Energy Drinks the Direct Selling Industry has to offer? There are 2 claims:

  • Health (long term objective) and Energy (short term effect).
  • Healthy Energy Drinks do have a challenge. The Energy component; Guarana, Taurine, Green tea extract, Caffeine, Sugar.
  • While we all need an energy boost from time to time, an energy drink may not be the best way to get it, experts say.
  • The FDA does not define the term energy drink; that label is up to manufacturers' discretion
  • Many young people, the main target group for Healthy Energy drinks do take energizers: Red Bull, Monster ect.
  • It's obvious that it would be better to take a Healthy Energy Drink then an energizer only.

As a distributor / prospect for Healthy Energy Drinks you want to know how effective a product is for your health & energy, how reliable the testimonials are, if the product is scientific formulated, what the price is compared to the compitition, how well is the marketing done at the company and are you backed up with clinical research. The famous product marketing mix from the corporate world; Price, Product, Place and Promotion.

Summary:

It is a close finish for the shortlisted energy drinks. Pricing is much closer then our review on Liquid Multi Vitamins. Average retail price for an Healthy Energy drink is $2.95 exclusing delivery charges. Looking to the calories, the average healthy energizer has 63 calories. All drinks have Guarana, either on the blend or in the Proprietary Blend.

Verve

Verve is using 1 shot of it's award winning Multi Liquid supplement Vemma to formulate Verve. A great idea. Overall the Nr. 1. A very nice balance between Health and Energy. Verve is using as energizers, Taurine and Guarana.  Below average on price, above average on calories (72). Overall the best choice if you are looking for healthy energy.

Xowii
XOWii has recognized the antioxidant richness of the KonaRed Coffee Cherry. The KonaRed Coffee Cherry boasts one of the highest ORAC scores known in the antioxidant world. Low in calories (55)  Fair balance between Energy, Health, Price and Calories. A great runner up!

Bios Smart Energy
Bios is the only energizer for smart healthy energy and therefore the editor's choice for the best new product. Bios is more looking for (smart) health  and then for energy,  it has a low score on Energy.

Pure Renew
In Energy, Pure Renew is the Nr. 1, the combination of 1,000 Mg Taurine, 50 Mg Guarana and 95 mg caffeine gives the highest rating on Energy. However because of the high energy ingredients it score the lowest rating on health. Price is also above average.

Monavie EMV
The Nr. 1 on Marketing, beautiful website. Average priced. The very high calories (170) are a disqualifier. You have to drink 11 cans of Bios Smart Energy or 3 cans of Xowii to match  that. Monavie answer: Most of the calories (about 90) come from the fruit juices and palatinose (60), which are healthier carbohydrate energy sources.

A.C.T. Energy
If you are on a budget then A.C.T. is the Nr. 1. Also low on Calories (25).

Yoli
No calories, but also little energy. Healthy, yes but overpriced in our opinion. $ 3.50 per cap without a bottle?
