Product Review: FRS Healthy Energy Drink

Looking for an energy drink that isn't chalk full of sugar and caffeine? We were too, so we found FRS Healthy Energy Drinks. FRS - which stands for Free Radical Scavenger (another term for antioxidant) - drinks have just 90 calories (25 calories for the low cal options, though we don't have those in stock at the moment).

FRS is fueled by quercetin, a powerful antioxidant found in foods like blueberries, red apples and grapes. Quercetin works by naturally triggering the body's ability to produce more real energy.

Editor's note: We can't really speak to the science of it all, but we can attest to feeling infused with more energy shortly after drinking this product. Heck, maybe it's a placebo, but it works!

They're in stock for $3.25 each. The manufacturer recommends consuming 3 of these a day, though that might get a bit expensive. We like them for a pre or mid workout beverage to provide that little bit extra get up and go (they're also a good thirst quencher).
