Kramp Krusher Electorlyte Chews

These little gummies are geared toward the endurance athlete.  Let’s be honest, many of us have experienced the unpleasant experience of the side cramp while doing cardio, or something of the like.  Kramp Krushers are built to replenish the electrolytes lost through sweat when working out, as well as giving you a bit of energy.  While I only got 2 for a sample, a full serving size is 10 gummies.

A full 10-piece serving provides 150 calories from fast absorbing dextrose, glucose syrup, and sugar (Natural Dynamix does not use ANY high fructose corn syrup)! In addition, Natural Dynamix uses natural sea salt, potassium citrate and calcium lactate to restore electrolytes lost during intense exercise.*

I gave these a try while I was at the gym yesterday, and the taste was definitely not bad, but I did not really notice a difference in the way I felt.  This is probably simply because I only had 1/5 of an actual serving.  At least knowing they taste good means you could get a little sweet treat with benefits in while at the gym.

 

Full size: 12 bags of 10 pieces (1 serving each bag) @ $29.88

Sample Size: 2 Pieces

Sample Value: $0.50

Runa Focused Energy

At first (as you can see on my video) I was a tad unenthused to be getting another tea, but that quickly changed when I read that Runa tea contains as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, offering a healthy energy boost whenever you need it. This tea is made from Guayusa which is an Amazonian tree and has been used for many (we’re talking hundreds, if not a thousand or so) years by the Amazonian people.

Guayusa is packed with antioxidants, polyphenols, flavonoids, saponins and L-theamine—ingredients known to calm the nervous system, contribute to cardiovascular health and reduce inflammation. These ingredients also help sustain the caffeine energy of the tea, keeping you from a big crash*

Full Size: 6 boxes of 16 bags each @ $35.99

VanaPain

When I pulled this out of the box I thought right away it was going to be some sort of energy shot, as it looks quite similar to my Eboost shot bottles that are in my pantry.  I was intrigued to see that this little shot is a pain killer.  This little strawberry flavored shot has a special blend of Choline Salicylate and caffeine (yay!).  Caffeine apparently helps speed up the delivery of pain killers, especially when it comes to headaches, and the Choline Salicylate “has an onset action of five times quicker than aspirin” making this shot a quick way to relieve your headache, minor aches and pains, back aches, and sore muscles.  I almost gave this a try last night to help my aching legs from leg day at the gym, but when I realized there was caffeine in it and it was 10pm, I decided against it for now.  I am excited to see if this works.

Full Size: 12 single serving bottles @ $38.40

Axia3 Pro-Digestive Aid

I had this product in a limited edition box I bought back when cold and flu season started.  What I like about this product is it helps take care of those overindulgent moments by not only easing the heartburn and discomfort, but it helps aid digestion as well, which makes me feel better about knowing I can help my body rid itself of the delicious indulgence a little bit easier.

Axia3 works through the power of three:

  1. Sodium Bicarbonate antacid gives fast-acting relief & Calcium Carbonate long-lasting relief *
  2. Trigestive Enzymatic Formula: promotes healthy digestion of proteins, carbs and essential oils and fats *
  3. Sweetened with Xylitol: diabetic-friendly sweetener that also promotes dental health and freshens breath *

Full Size: 45 tablet pack @ $11.99

Sample Size: 12 tablets

Sample Value: $3.20

VirMAX T Testosterone Booster

My first thought on this was “why the heck is this in here?”  I really have no words for this other than it is a testosterone booster for men.  Here’s what Bulu Box has to say about it:

Boost your testosterone and amplify your life with the natural power of VirMax T. There is no need for scheduling doses or planning activity with VirMax T. Designed to counteract the drop in testosterone levels that occurs for men after peaking at age 20, VirMax T contains naturally these occurring ingredients that boost testosterone, endurance and performance, promote muscle building and support immunity*:

  • Tribulus– shown to increase natural testosterone levels by as much as 50%, improving male sexual performance and helping build muscle
  • Magnesium– needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, maintaining normal muscle and nerve function, steady heart rhythm and supporting a healthy immune system
  • Tongkat Ali LJ100– a high quality standardized extract from the Eurycoma longfolia plant that increases sexual desire & performance and physical stamina & endurance
  • Zinc– shown to support natural production of testosterone and improve low levels

So…yeah..  I told my husband that he got a present in my Bulu box this month and once I showed it to him he looked at me and was like “Yeah…I’m not taking that.”  Maybe I can convince him to take it just because.. who knows.  Random, and something I most definitely won’t use.

Full Size: 30 servings @ $29.99

Sample Size: 1 serving

Sample Value: $1.00

 

Total Box Value: $12.65

There is most definitely an interesting blend of products in my box this month, which is great, and it made it to the box value of at least $10, which is what subscribers pay for it..however.. I don’t really see how a single one of these can be geared toward a weight loss specific box.  I’d imagine that the general wellness box could have the exact same products and no one would think anything of it.  I’m hoping that Bulu Box starts to make the weight loss box more weight loss specific, because as of late, it hasn’t really seemed that way.

 

If you’re interested in joining the Bulu Box community you can head on over to their website and join today.  There are 2 different subscription options: General Wellness and Weight Loss edition, that both offer samplings of some of the latest products in the industry.  Check them out!
