Phix Natural Energy Drink Review and Giveaway! (3 Winners)

Today’s society is all hustle bustle, gogogo!  Being a working mother I feel the stress and often find myself exhausted by the end of the night….or even at the beginning of the day when I just get up from not-enough-sleep!  Does this sound a lot like you?

I have been torn in what to do to get myself going, I absolutely hate wasting time and there is no slacking off at work since we are short-handed so I often need a pick-me-up.  Unfortunately I do not like coffee and I’m not a fan of what is in sodas or energy drinks and how they make me feel so I felt stuck and went through my day tired and blah.

Then I was introduced to Phix Natural Energy Drink!  It was a whole new concept to me because it is completely different from any other energy drink I have ever seen.  Instead of being a caffeinated, carbonated beverage that would make me jittery all day it was a little packet of a dried drink mix that I could easily mix with water (or anything else I wished).  This made it so I could use it anytime I needed to and could keep it with me wherever I was.

To first try it out I mixed a packet in a 16  oz bottle and shook it up to dissolve the powder and make the drink.  My first surprise was that it did not seem to fully dissolve though I let it sit for a while and swooshed it around, but I drank it throughout the morning anyways…I needed some energy!  I later talked to Phix about the sediment that did not seem to dissolve and was told it’s the tea leaves and other natural ingredients in the drink that give you the benefits  you are looking for from Phix, it’s healthy and nothing to worry about, better yet it is proof that it is natural!

The 3 Flavors of Phix I got to taste.  Phix comes in to-go and easy-to-use packets for great convenience!

I received a sample packet of all three flavors of Phix Energy Drink, including the Citron, Tropic, and Teaberry, and wish I had more!  It did not take long for me to realize the response my body had to the drink, I felt more awake and aware, I felt like myself!  Better yet I did not feel hyper or jittery like from other energy drinks I have tried in the past, and I did not have any after affects that I had come to associate with energy drinks (such as headaches and exhaustion later in the day as the caffeine wore off).  Phix Energy not only seemed to work for me but with me in  helping me get through my day and what needed to get done without the moan and groan of being too worn out.

The second unexpected feature I experienced from Phix Energy was the overall taste.  Energy drinks all seem to have a sugary, cough syrup taste to them that I can only associate with them, but Phix Energy tastes so much different and better in my opinion!  The flavors are all blends of fruit tastes that appeal to the senses and refreshes me as I drink it, not make me thirsty and feeling dehydrated like traditional energy drinks.  I very much liked these tastes, especially my favorite citron flavor!Phix comes in great tasting flavors that refreshed and energized me!

Besides myself I also asked a co-worker of mine to give Phix Energy a try and get his opinion and point of view.  He was a big energy drink consumer and had decided to cut energy drinks from  his diet, so felt very drained and none too happy.  I gave him a Teaberry and Tropic flavored Phix packets hoping for some good results!  His experience?  He said he definitely felt more energized but was very surprised by the drink.  Just as my experience he was not expecting an energy drink to have a fruity flavor, but what he really thought was different was the lack of carbonation that he usually enjoyed  (the bubbles in most energy drinks).  So for an experiment I carbonated some water in my SodaStream machine and attempted to mix in a packet of Phix…bad idea!  Fizz everywhere!  I would not recommend trying this at home!  Regardless he did enjoy the Phix and it helped him out somewhat though if it will replace his old energy drinks I cannot say.

So how does Phix Energy Drink work?  Well it’s a blend of green tea antioxidants and other ingredients (such as NADH and yerba mate) to “enhance and sustain your vigor”.  They then add vitamins and minerals that will help your body out so that you are not only getting greater energy from the drink but will feel and be healthier!  There are no artificial ingredients at all in the drink and many of the ingredients are not only natural but are also organic.  Of course it is still a supplement of a type and though natural all supplements have their limits, the drink is low in calories, sugar and carbs but certain ingredients like NADH should be used in moderation, so I myself have only used one Phix a day (which is all I’ve ever needed!), and Phix recommends no more than 10 drinks to be consumed in a day (don’t think I could if I wanted to!).

Phix Energy Drink has not only found a place in my lifestyle, but has overall benefited my life and made it easier for me to get through my day and enjoy my time with family and even work.  I heard Phix Energy tastes great hot too so I hope to try it heated up soon!  I also think carrying around some packets to hand off to friends and family who need an extra boost on a day they are dragging their feet might be a good idea, and since Phix is Vegan and Gluten Free I can pretty much offer it to any friend or family member that could need it!

What SAPsMaMa Loves About Phix Energy Drink:

  • Made of natural and organic ingrediants NOTHING artificial!
  • Great natural and refreshing flavors
  • On-the-go packets make it easy to transport, use on the go, and take where you need it (like the gym!)
  • The energy I get stays with me, it is an “awake and aware” energy feeling, not a jittery caffeine feeling.
  • No side effects like energy crashes later or headaches like with normal energy drinks
  • Gluten free and vegan!

Suggestions For Improvement:

  • Include some text in the directions for the energy drink on how to best dissolve the powder in the water/beverage of choice.
  • Though I love the flavors and how refreshing they are I would like to see a non-fruity flavor.  My suggestion would be mint or a spearmint lemongrass mix but I’ll leave that up to you!  A more herb, less fruity flavor might agree with other personalities more.
  • Though the packets are wonderful for on-the-go I would like to see a bulk container of Phix available for in-the-home or workplace use for those who plan to Phix all the time!  Also, a different form of the energy drink, possibly with carbonation for those who seek a bubbly energy drink with the natural benefits of Phix might be appealing to other consumers.
