Ola Loa Review.
I was recently sent samples of Ola Loa's line of vitamin drinks for review, including the Ola Loa Energy, Sport, Repair and Kids.
Being a relatively new mom, I chose to try out the Ola Loa Energy Packet, which promises that, "Ola Loa ENERGY is a delicious effervescent multi-vitamin-mineral-amino powder that provides quick recovery for stress, sports and the rigors of daily life." The powder contains Vitamin C, A, numerous B vitamins, Coenzyme Q10, selenium, potassium and many key amino acids, amongst other healthful additions. While it wasn't by any means bad tasting, being "tropical" flavored, I did have a hard time with the powder's effervescent nature, not being a particular fan of drinks like alka-seltzer or even seltzer water.
I will say that I did feel refreshed throughout the day, despite skipping my morning latte to ensure that I was giving Ola Loa (and my readers) a fair review, and that I had plenty of energy to keep up with three kiddos, my household, and still make it through the day without needing a nap!
If you're a fan of the Emergen-C line of products, you'll definitely be a fan of the Ola Loa drink powders, as they're quite similar in texture and yet far tastier and with many more nutritional and health benefits!
Ola Loa drinks also come in Repair, Sport and Kids formulas, depending upon your needs and lifestyle. If you have a kiddo whose not big on swallowing pills, Ola Loa can provide a great alternative to ensure that your little one is having their nutritional needs met, particularly for those parents who are concerned over their finicky eaters. For any athletes (aren't all moms athletes?) out there, the Sport and Repair formulas will help to replace lost electrolytes while supporting the extra needs of active adults.
