Energy mixes are becoming one of my favorite products (if done right). You can throw some in your desk drawer, in your pocket, or in your car for whenever you need a pick me up. These are great because all you need is some water and you have yourself an energy drink. Today I will be checking out Helix Energy. A big thanks goes out to my good friend over at Kingofcaffeine.com for hooking me up so I could review it.
The Look: Helix comes in a nice foil lined tear away packet. The design fits in very nicely with the Helix theme and the package has a nice look to it. On the packages I got the caffeine amount was not listed but that looks to be fixed on the new packages. You get the information that is needed on the pack and they did a good job of keeping the small package uncluttered.

Taste: Some powders are horrible and some are great, Helix falls into the great category. There are only 10 calories in a package and 0 grams of sugar. The taste reminds me of an orange Powerade, extremely tasty. There is no vitamin aftertaste or caffeine taste in Helix. This is a very tasty mix.

Does It Work: The amount of caffeine in a pack kind of surprised me, 170mg of caffeine. 170mg is quite a bit of caffeine for a powdered energy mix. Along with the caffeine you also get a good amount of Vitamin C, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, magnesium, L-Taurine, L-Carnitine, Ginseng, Glucuronolactone, and citric acid. After drinking one of these in my bottled water this morning I became very alert. Helix left me pleasantly surprised at the amount of energy it gave me. I was amped up and felt great for a good 4 hours.

Overall Thoughts: I had not heard anything about Helix before I received the samples from Kingofcaffeine.com but now I have to say after trying these out I am rather impressed. This would be a great drink for outdoor activities because it is very refreshing. You can check them out at their website at Helix Drinks where they have a bunch of information as well as a way to order some. You can also buy some from my good friend at Kingofcaffeine.com for just a dollar a package. If you get the chance give this a try, I don't think you will be disappointed.
