After recently posting about the latest health craze surrounding the Acai berry, I came across an energy drink in which the Acai berry is the main ingredient.  The company is eFusjon Energy Club.  They manufactuer and sell 4 different kinds of energy drinks.  They’ve structured the company around natural ingredients, fruits and berries. Below is brief description of their products, the active ingredients and how these can improve health.

The Acai berry , which has recently turned heads in the health industry, provides nutrients that can improve energy and performance in all aspects of life.  The acai berry is the foundation of Raw energy drink, and an abundant amount of nutrients for energy.  The berry is believe to have up to 30 times the Anthocyanins found in red wine (Anthocyanins help the body prevent heart disease, fight cancer cells, and curb memory loss).  It is also considered to be one of the top 10 superfoods in the world containing folic acid, magnesium, calcium, iron, potassium, protein, phytonutrients, vitamin C and E, amino acids, and omega-3, 6 and 8. It is also a great source of anti-oxidants!”

Edge is a caffeine driven, “slightly sweeter version of eFusjon’s flagship product Raw. Edge provides an extra boost that come from adding caffeine, while still retaining the wonderful  health benefits found in Raw.”

eFusjon Breeze contains mangosteen, passion fruit, caffeine and has a tropical flavor. “Though it’s been around for thousands of years, the mangosteen fruit in not commonly known throughout the world.  Typically grown in tropical climates, its tastes is beyond compare.   Among the powerful phytonutrients found in mangosteen  are xanthones.  Xanthones are some of the most potent antioxidants known today, and are beneficial  for neutralizing  free radicals in the body.  Passion fruit, a sweet  and aromatic fruit native to South America, has many quality health benefits as well.  Passion fruit is a great source of antioxidants, and an excellent source of carbohydrates and simple sugars, which improve atheletic performance.  Combining these fruits with the dynamic vitamin blend and caffeine creates a tropical energy drink everyone will enjoy.”

eFusjon’s fourth and final drink is Dawn, which “boosts endurance, is antioxidant rich, fights against fatigue, depression and anxiety.  Dawn with queretin is phytochemical that is part of the coloring found in the skins of apples, red grapes, cherries, and raspberries, and is also in red wines.  Quercetin is a powerful source of antioxidants and is also a natural anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory.  Dawn helps boosts endurance and is good weapon against fatigue.  The sustained effect of quercetin is due to its long half-life in the blood. According to studies, quercetin stays on the job three times longer than caffeine.   A medium sized apple contains approximately 9mg of quercetin.  An 8.4oz. can of Dawn contains 250mg of quercetin which is the equivalent of eating 27 apples!”
