Formulated to use the power of science to get you the most out of life, Neuro was created in 2007 by founder Diana Jenkins. Since 2007, Neuro has expanded its market to stores across the country to offer the supplement to consumers. Recently, I was afforded the opportunity to give several of the Neuro drinks a try. Plus, MANE MAN has teamed up with Neuro for a giveaway!
neuroSONIC: Labeled as “mental performance in every bottle”, neuroSONIC is designed to help you “energize the healthy way”. Let me begin by saying that at 35 calories per 14.5 oz bottle, the whole idea of Neuro is amazing (how did you manage to pull that off Neuro?!). That being said, SONIC has a citrusy and almost strawberry taste and reminded me a bit of the old school “strawberry drink” I used to have as a kid. Now imagine that drink, with a lot less carbonation, practically no sugar and a kickstart of caffeine. Not to shabby, eh? My one criticism is that the neuroSONIC has a strong synthetic sugar after taste which I did not enjoy.
neuroSUN: I actually passed neuroSUN on to a friend (Rachel of NewtoNewYorkCity.com) to try and this was her favorite. With a little bit of caffeine and a refreshing taste, neuroSUN offers an extra hit of vitamin D, which helps keep your immune system healthy and helps maintain your body weight.
neuroTRIM: Designed to control your appetite and help you eat less, neuroTRIM, I would assume, is designed for long term use to gain any real benefit. My friend Rachel also helped along with this one. The flavor is sweet and grape-like, and tastes almost like a grape cold pop (Sweet Brown, anyone?). That being said, TRIM also had that odd sugar after taste present in the neuroSONIC.
neuroPASSION: Here are some the buzzwords I wrote down while noting my experience with neuroPASSION: refreshing, energizing, CAFFEINE! I can’t say that the PASSION drink necessarily offered more caffeine than the other drinks I tried but I will say that I can’t remember the last time I felt so energized and I have to have a cup of coffee almost every day. I tried PASSION on a super hot, humid NY day when I was out shopping. I skipped the café that morning and didn’t miss it at all. Trust me, that is saying a lot. I would strongly recommend this one for a kick start any day.
neuroSLEEP: Marketed as “ZZZzzz in every bottle”, neuroSLEEP packs a healthy does of melatonin, which is a supplement that has gained popularity over the past few years to help regulate your normal sleep pattern. Rachel noted that this one does help relieve minor body cramps, which is certainly a great benefit for anyone needing a bit of restoration. Non-carbonated, neuroSLEEP and neuroSUN both have strong citrus-orangey tastes. If orange is your thing, you might want to give them both a shot.
neuroBLISS: This one, by far, was my favorite of the line. It also happened to be the first one I tried. Designed to reduce stress and enhance mood, I have to say that after a long day, neuroBLISS is what the doctor should have ordered. The light carbonation gave me a nice bubbly sensation and reminded my of a vitamin water, only a hundred times better. I’d buy just a case of this stuff alone.
Overall Impression: As a line of products, Neuro has a sleek and cool ergonomic design which is easy to hold and fit to carry around in a day bag without too much intrusion. The bottle design is pretty cool which helps it stand out in a market of beverages trying to jump out at you from the market shelf. My only real disappointment was that some of the drinks had a strong, sugar substitute after taste which might bother some more than others. That being said, I think neuroBLISS and neuroSONIC were stand outs in delivering the advertised effects. Overall, I’m pleasantly surprised with Neuro and recommend it as a more beneficial alternative to overly sweet, heavily carbonated soda drinks. Try it for yourself.
