Activate Drink Review

Being pregnant I know how hard it can be for some pregnant women to take prenatal vitamins, or just vitamins in general, or anyone in general. Usually vitamins are huge "horse pills", which make it hard for a lot of people to swallow. I know this from experience. The prenatal pills I have been taking aren't huge, but they are big enough to be a little difficult to swallow. 

When I was asked if I'd be interested in trying Activate, I gladly accepted without hesitation. I love trying water products, and love it even more when it's flavored water. But Activate isn't your ordinary flavored water. Activate has something that no other water has; that I've see anyway. The vitamins are stored directly in the cap! They say:

"By storing the active ingredients inside the unique cap, separate from the water, the ingredients stayed powerful, fresh and offered the convenient, all-in-one delivery method we were seeking."

First, you twist the colored portion of the cap to release the vitamins. You can see the vitamins fall into the water. Next, shake your water to mix the vitamins in with the water and do it well so it clears all the vitamins out of the cap; you don't want to leave any behind!  Last but not least, twist the actual cap the other direction (opposite of the colored cap) and enjoy!

I received two of the 10 flavors they offer; Exotic Berry and Lulo Pear. They have 5 types of water; Multivitamin, Antioxidant, Workout, Energy, and Immunity. They also have a 20oz bottle (and 1 liter) of deionized water. The bottles of flavored water are 16 oz. 

Exotic Berry is a Antioxidant water and was my favorite out of the two I received. 48mg Tea Polyphenols, 35mg Tea Catechins, 24mg Acai Extract, 20mg EGCG, 12mg Aloe Vera Extract, and 12mg Bilberry Extract. 0 sugar and only 5 calories.

Studies show antioxidants, such as catechins, protect skin, cells, and overall health."
Lulo Pear is an Multivitamin water with 200% vitamin C and Vitamin A,B, and E. 
"200% of your body’s daily dose of Vitamin C and other essential vitamins maintain overall health."

Price: $9.20 for a 4pk
