I have been searching for Neuro for quite some time now, and after I had just about given up on finding it in this part of the country, a nearby gas station suddenly started stocking a few of the flavors. From what I can tell so far, Neuro offers an exceptionally wide variety of very different and interesting products. Rather than sticking to one general theme like most soft drink companies (such as soda, energy drinks, relaxation beverages, etc.), Neuro has decided to just do all of them. Touting the label of "nutritional supplements" rather than "soft drinks," each of Neuro's products has a very different taste and function, and the variety between each offering is truly impressive. Because of this variety, my next few reviews will all be of Neuro products, but I shall start my sampling with Neuro Sonic.
Neuro Sonic is Neuro's "energy drink." Each bottle contains a proprietary blend of energy-boosting supplements, along with 100% of the recommended daily value of vitamin B12, and a surprisingly high 200% daily value of vitamin B6, among others. I have breifly discussed my strange immunity to these sorts of energy enhancers in previous posts, and the same remains true for Neuro Sonic. Although I did not really feel any noticeable boost in energy, I do just feel sort of good after drinking one, which is likely due to the large concentrations of vitamin B. In addition to the energy mixture, Neuro Sonic also includes several other nutritional supplements such as Phosphatidylserine and L-theanine that are said to help support memory and general cognition.
All of this is great, and it is actually very impressive that Neuro has managed to pack so many different supplements into one bottle, but these things are only important if the taste of the beverage actually makes you want to drink it. This is where things start to get a little shaky for Neuro Sonic, as I don't think that the flavor of the drink is likely to have universal appeal. Because there are so many vitamins and supplements in Neuro Sonic, the taste is quite complex and difficult to pin down, but the easiest comparison is that it tastes like chewing up an old-school Flinstones vitamin. While I really like this taste, I know that a lot of people don't, and it makes this a difficult drink to recommend without first "warning" people of the taste.
So...here is your warning:
It tastes like a Flinstones vitamin.
But you should drink it.
