Product Review Function Light Weight Drinks
It’s always amusing to me when I see these fancy sports drinks with huge marketing campaigns that extol all these supposed Scientific benefits, but at the end of the day, your body mostly processes the drink as sugar and water. So, when I saw these Function Light Weight Drinks, I was immediately skeptical. Is it another drink loaded with sugar that passes itself off as a vitamin drink?
Well, I decided to give it a try and bought the “Acai Pomegranate,” flavor which was surprisingly refreshing, light and has 10 calories for the entire bottle. I’m a big believer that you should eat your calories, not drink them. Well, I try to do this, at least.
This drink has promotes ingredients like Red wine extract resveratrol and ECGC from green tea that studies show will help to increase calories burned per hour. (According to the label on the drink) It also contains gymnema exract which is shown to help balance insulin levels. All of this is explained on their website, and it also comes in other flavors like Pink Grapefruit and Blueberry raspberry.
The only drawbacks that I see are that it does contain sucralose, an artificial sweetener, but adding this to a mixed drink recipe or just drinking it ice cold sound perfect for a hot summer day.
As for all of their claims, I’m sure there is some merit to them, but drinks like this are best if you hate water and need a refreshing low-cal beverage. Cheers!
