I was sent a Koge Vitamins Energy Pack in exchange for my honest review; all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Full disclosure: I've never been "good" at taking vitamins - I either forget them or don't take them regularly. When I had the chance to review Koge Vitamins, I decided to go for it because I wanted to 1) see if I could do it - take vitamins for 15 days straight and 2) wanted to know for myself if I felt a difference on vitamins.
Well, 18 days later and I almost succeeded! I went away for 3 days and forgot to bring them with me so I had a few extra days. I did feel a difference on the Energy tablets. I woke up feelling more refreshed and I didn't feel any cravings or need for coffee. Also, I was much more alert during the afternoon - never felt "foggy brain" in the afternoon.
Koge offers a few different vitamin pack options: Daily Essentials, Antioxidant Collection, Weight
Management and Energy Pack. Additionally, they have a Whey Protein powder. Koge vitamins are cheaper than buying from brick and mortar stores because they have streamlined the process. It reminded me of Trader Joes - they are able to keep their prices low because they cut out the middle men/the distribution process.
I took the Energy Pack which consisted of the following 4 tablets:
- Korean Ginseng – believed to relieve the effects of stress and enhance mental and physical performance.
- Ayur Indian Ginseng – supports energy production, which improves the body's mental and physical performance
- Guarana - a nature, powerful and long-lasting dose of caffeine - a concentration of 3.6% to 5.8%, compared to coffee's 1.0% to 2.0%. (When I was living in Brazil, I regularly had Guarana in smoothies and juices.)
- Coenzyme Q-10 with L-Taurine - Coenzyme Q-10 is a natural antioxidant that protects and rejuvenates your body against wear and tear, improves heart health and lowers blood pressure. Taurine is known for lowering cholesterol and repairing the body against natural external damage.
Overall, I'm happy with the results and I proved that I am capable of taking vitamins everyday, 2x a day (well, at least when I remember to bring them on vacation with me!) Another, to buy their vitamins, they are giving back and doing good - they have pledged to donate a percentage from every Koge vitamin sale to help provide the proper Vitamin A concentration children in developing countries need to survive. Also, they don't take themselves that seriously:
