My pals over at VitHit kindly sent me some of their fruity concoctions to try out! I got one of each of these flavours:
- Berry Boost
- Lean & Green
- Citrus Revive
They’re all made with real fruit juice, herbs and tea and have no added sugars, which all sounds like a bit of a winner to me.
On closer inspection of the ingredients, I was impressed with the line up of healthy things packed in to the little bottles. The Detox contains two cups of green tea and a full complement of vitamins B1, B6 and B12. The Lean and Green contains two cups of Mate tea and L-Carnitine, and the Revive has two cups of white tea as well as Siberian gingseng. All of the flavours also contain 100% of your RDA for vitamin C, which is a tasty and handy way to fend off winter bugs!
One downside for me is that all the flavours I got contained sucralose artificial sweetener. I appreciate the desire to keep sugar (and calories) low, but I personally try and keep artificial sweeteners out of my system as much as possible. I think these would be much better if they were sweetened with fruit juice alone, or even stevia, to keep things as natural as possible.
Taste wise I thought they were yummy! Not out of this world get in my belly yummy, but decent tasting enough. I think the closest thing I could compare them to is Oasis.
Overall I think these are a yummy and easy way to get in a helping hand of vitamins and all the super duper antioxidants that tea brings to the table. Nice one VitHit!
