The Look: Provita comes in a black 2.9 oz bottle with a black and red label on it. On the label red and white are used on the font and it looks very nice in contrast with the background. They have information such as : zero sugar, zero fat, zero crash, 6 hour energy, and 42 g of protein listed on the front of the shot. On the back there is nutritional information (very big list), an ingredient list, and even directions. I have 2 very minor complaints about the packaging. The first complaint is that the caffeine content is not listed and the second is the safety seal attached to the cap won't completely detach (making it a bit hard to reseal).

Taste: That much protein inside such a small shot has me worried a little bit. I open it up and sure enough the smell of protein is pretty strong mixed with a candied cherry smell. I am very surprised at how much they were able to mask the protein when I took my first drink of the shot. The first thing I noticed was the thickness of the shot mixed with an extremely tart cherry. The tartness of the cherry almost completely eliminates all the protein flavoring (very impressed). Between the thickness of the shot and the extreme tartness I did need a chaser afterwards. I have had protein drinks that tasted much worse than this and the drinks had only half the amount of protein.

Does It Work: This is the first shot I have had that had protein along with the energy blend. The first time I tried it I drank half of the bottle and then finished the other half an hour later. Wow this stuff is potent. I was filled with an extreme amount of energy and was ready to get some stuff done. Surprisingly, even with the great amount of energy I had there was not any jitters at all. The kick from this lasted easily about 5-6 hours with no crash. If you take this before the gym prepare to be able to bust through your workout with ease. So what powers Provita Energy? Provita has 170 calories, 42 g of proteins, caffeine (undisclosed amount), vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, multiple B vitamins, taurine, biotin, zinc, magnesium, copper, manganese, chromium, folic acid, pantothenic acid, and l-tryptophan. As you can see Provita has a rather large ingredient list that work well together to kick your ass in gear.

Overall Thoughts: Provita came through in a huge way with this shot. The protein amount is massive and will be appreciated by the target audience easily. Along with the killer amount of protein the energy blend is top notch and is not to be taken lightly. Provita also makes 3 other variety of shots that all include 42g of protein: a relaxing shot, a slimming shot, and one crammed with vitamins. I will be reviewing the relaxation shot in there future so look out for it. This is a shot that easily gets my recommendation and I would love to hear your thoughts on it. If you are looking for a way to "Mandrate" with a shot, this will get it done.
