Thirsty on the Golf Course? How About Amino Vital?

Product Review: Amino Vital Focus Zone

I watch a lot of golf on TV and the Golf Channel is an engrained muscle-memory by now on my remote (don’t judge).

During all this viewing, I’ve seen a lot of commercials. One of the commercials that caught my attention was Amino Vital. With clever advertising and prominently placed logos on the bags of PGA Tour stars, I decided to give Amino Vital products a try.

I’m not saying a sports drink will allow me to hit drives as far as Dustin Johnson (one of the company’s most high-profile athletes), but if tastes good, keeps me hydrated, and helps maintain my focus throughout the round, I’m in.

Standing behind their products, Amino Vital confidently proclaims, “Our products are unique in promoting cellular level muscle recovery, repair, and energy. The ability to absorb pure amino acids promotes increased energy and great focus.”


REVIEW

I began with the STARTER pack (16 packets) of the company’s FOCUS ZONE product. The starter pack comes with two flavors: Grape and Lemon. Each packet mixes into a bottle of water (16-20 ounces) or in the Amino Vital mixing bottle (free w/purchase).

There are a lot of options in sports drinks on the market, so Amino Vital operates in a competitive environment. Some popular sports drinks have great taste, but are high in calories. Others are very energizing, but can have a crash effect when the energy wears off.

I found Amino Vital FOCUS ZONE a perfect blend of the two. Focus Zone has great taste but is low in calories and was not highly energizing, so there’s no crash effect later in the day.

  • With great taste, Amino Vital Focus Zone is an easy go-to on the course. Just grab a packet from your golf bag, mix it in a bottle of water (or Amino Vital mixing bottle) and you’re ready to go.
  • At just 15-calories a packet, Amino Vital Focus Zone is a great low calorie replacement for your regular sports drink.
  • At current pricing (including shipping), Amino Vital Focus Zone is approximately $1.60 a packet. This makes Focus Zone a cheaper, or very competitive pricing option, against all major sports drinks on the market.

Easy Mixing, Great Taste, Great Value!

Try Amino Vital FOCUS ZONE!
