Doctor V: A Healthy Alternative to Redbull
I never thought I'd touch another energy drink. Back when I was a 21 year old wee whipper-snapper, I'd down them in bucket loads. They'd give me the massive amount of energy that I needed to hold down 3 jobs and a degree.
Back then, I probably wasn't thinking of the health risks from consuming so much caffeine, but as soon as I had enough sense (by aged 22), I'd stopped drinking energy drinks altogether.
That was until this week, when a supply from Doctor V landed on my porch. If I'm honest, it was the packaging that got me. I'm a sucker for perfectly designed boxes and love these little details. The drinks themselves are great too. They're bright and you feel energised just by looking at them.
What makes Doctor V different is that they're healthy. They're an energy drink that is much lower in sugar and contains a great blend of European herbs and antioxidants. They're also infused with berries and I just love the lingonberry flavour. It reminds me of Sweden.
The drinks taste great; they're refreshing and I immediately felt energised. I was able to complete several workouts and I felt they'd be perfect for a pre-run if you can hack the carbonated side of things.
Doctor V is designed by scientists and doctors, meaning you're in safe hands and away from the potentially toxic ingredients that many large commercial operations place in their drinks.
