WHAT’S IT COST? $31.95 ( 24 servings),
$63.90 ( 48 servings).
WHAT STANDS OUT? Here’s a list of things that
stand out with the MindFX Athene X-treme performance
(1) Objective. There has been an explosion of
energy drink companies in recent years. Companies
load an assortment of energy-boosting ingredients—
some natural, but most processed—into the biggest can
possible and make millions of dollars. MindFX has
taken an alternate approach. MindFX Athene X-treme
performance powder aims to boost mental focus by using
natural ingredients and adaptogenic (acting to normalize
and regulate the body) herbs.
( 2) Ingredients. The 11.5-gram packet of Athene
X-treme contains vitamin C (500mg), niacin (20mg),
vitamin B6 (50mg), vitamin B12 (750mcg), potassium
(457mg), sodium (160mg) and phosphorous (98mg). The
X-treme blend also contains rhodiola rosea extract, ginko
biloba extract, panax ginseng extract, caffeine anhydrous
(75mg), synephrine and theobromine. Each packet is 35
calories and contains 8 grams of sugar.
( 3) Performance. Aldon Baker, trainer to the stars,
endorses MindFX, so the MXA wrecking crew gave it a
try. The result? We had an increased amount of energy
that was noticeable for over an hour (the length of
time varied depending on the person). We didn’t get
headaches or have the typical energy-drink-crash
sensation. The mixture tasted like tropical berry, but the
flavor didn’t appeal to everyone.
WHAT’S THE SQUAWK? Two quibbles: (1) We’re
leery of ingesting ingredients that we cannot pronounce.
( 2) If you are sensitive to caffeine, then MindFX isn’t for
you. Do not give this to children.
Maybe it’s just us, and Ryan Villopoto, but this
stuff works. Every tester felt a boost in
energy after drinking the MindFX Athene
X-treme (and there was no delayed crash).
We were impressed by the results.
