We're sort of obsessed with Neuro Drinks here at Style & Wisdom. I first saw them in the grocery store (Market District is the only store I've seen selling them in Pittsburgh) and I was drawn in by the different colors and unique shape of the bottle, and the bold names of each one. We mentioned NeuroSun in a blog post recently about how to beat the winter blues (you can read it here), but now, we're going to take some time to explain each of the seven drinks from the Neuro brand. Each drink comes with a major claim as to what it can do for your mind and body, but do they really work? I wasn't entirely sure when I tried them, but was happy to find out that they do actually live up to their claims. And, they all taste really delightful.
First off, let's talk about what each one claims to do. There are seven drinks: NeuroBliss, NeuroSun, NeuroPassion, NeuroTrim, NeuroSonic, NeuroSleep, and NeuroSport. NeuroBliss promotes happiness while helping to eliminate stress, NeuroSun provides your entire daily dose of Vitamin D (1,000 IUs) without the harmful rays of the sun, NeuroPassion stimulates blood flow to the body, NeuroTrim promotes weightloss with a unique fiber ingredient that makes you feel full, NeuroSonic increases mental alertness and concentration, NeuroSleep promotes restful sleep by using Melatonin, and finally, NeuroSport repelenishes the body during and after exercise with a combination of 12 minerals and 5 electrolytes.
So, the big question here is do they work? I'm going to go through my personal three favorites and one that is too strong for me, because these are the ones that I would be using most frequently and can fill you in on how they work, if they work for my lifestyle, and if I like the taste. My personal favorite is the NeuroBliss. I actually do feel calmer while drinking it, and for a stressful day at the office, or a day of phone calls, emails, and writing all day long, I think it is a very useful product. It's a better alternative than drinking coffee all day long or dreaming about Happy Hour after work, which isn't always a healthy way to cure work stress. I love how these drinks are somewhat fizzy, but not nearly as carbonated as soda. It's almost like you're drinking a drink from the future (like, something that Charlize Theron would be drinking in Aeon Flux). NeuroBliss has a very light, sweet taste to it, which isn't overpowering and makes it very relaxing. They have a really nice calming effect that, in my opinion, is great for winding down at the end of the day, or drinking before a stressful phone conference, or something of that nature.
Another favorite of mine is the NeuroSun, which isn't carbonated like the NeuroBliss and the NeuroSonic, which I will mention soon. The taste of the drink sort of channels tanning lotion (or a day at the beach of drinking Pina Coladas) but tastes really good at the same time. It's very tropical. For gloomy days in the winter, I think this drink is a perfect midday boost if you're feeling like you're never going to escape the winter.
My final favorite from the line is NeuroSonic. I'm a total fan of coffee because I think it helps me to tackle crazy days early in the morning, but it makes me crash and is REALLY heavy. NeuroSonic does the same thing, but without the heaviness of coffee and the crash that occurs after a few cups. I think this would be perfect for someone in college who had to take a final exam, which I think is what the company had in mind when creating it. It really helps me to focus on my work and, as I mentioned, tackle my work.
NeuroSleep is a really powerful drink that will make you sleepy. Since it does work, be ready to sleep when you drink it. It doesn't help you relax, it actually helps you fall asleep. I wanted to see what it tasted like early in the morning and found myself sort of out of it because it contains melatonin (which I have personally never liked.) The melatonin in it does make you ready to go to sleep, but if you don't like the effects of melatonin on your body ( I know that I get strange nightmares when I take it), I would keep that in mind. If you are a total fan of melatonin and take it before bed already, this is totally your drink. I do love the taste, though, it has sort of a light fruity taste to it.
I wanted to talk about my favorites, or my personal system (NeuroBliss, NeuroSonic, and NeuroSun) from the Neuro brand because I want everyone to be inspired to go find out what their personal system is with these drinks. Oddly enough, my three favorites are a recommended combination from the brand, which they refer to as the Workaholic system. How ironic?! I think these are a really fun alternative to the unhealthy carbonated drinks on the market, like soda and energy drinks. I personally love them because all of their claims are achieved with vitamins and minerals, rather than unhealthy and chemical ingredients like those found in some of the energy drinks and sodas on the market.
Right now (from Feb 13 to Feb 29), since Neuro is an official sponsor of the Elton John Oscars party, they will donate $1 for every person who uploads a photo of their personal system to the Neuro Facebook page. Each dollar will be donated to the Elton John Aids Foundation to help upgrade the lives of those affected by HIV/Aids.
