Xyience Xenergy Review
The Xenergy drink by Xyience supplements is a sugar free energy drink that has zero calories. It's marketed as an energy drink that helps to improve mental focus and increase physical endurance. Unlike some of the other more training oriented drinks like Endorush or Endurox, Xenergy is meant to be taken anytime during the day for any situation - be it for work, studying, or sports.
As well, its bottling design is not really optimal for a workout energy drink. Xenergy comes in tall, sleek looking tin containers that holds 473ml. I don't imagine anyone would want to carry one of these with them around the gym when there are other more convenient drinks available.
As well, it doesn't quite measure up to the massive energy boosting effects of BSN Endorush, nor does it offer the caloric input of Endurox or Accelerade for your workouts. Hence, Xenergy has its place as a zero calorie energy drink that helps improve mental focus and endurance.

Xenergy contains some pretty standard energy boosting ingredients such as caffeine, guarana (caffeine), ginseng, and taurine. Caffeine in humans ia central nervous system stimulant, that helps ward off drowsiness, and improves alertness. Guarana is the herbal form of caffeine. It's a plant with large leaves and clusters of flowers.
Ginseng is one of the most highly regarded energy tonics of Chinese herbalism. It is an herbal adaptogen, helping the body to adapt to a variety of stresses. Many Ginseng supplements combine the extract with pure root insures all the important compounds of ginseng are captured, for a broad range of ginseng activity. Qualities of the Panax Ginseng include boosting immune system, promoting blood circulation, and improving mental and physical alertness and endurance.
Taurine is a semi-essential amino acid, and it plays an important role and is found in the heart muscle,
white blood cells, central nervous system, and skeletal
muscle. Some benefits of taurine include lowering blood pressure, improves immune system, and plays an important role in nitric oxide production.
Xenergy Flavors and Taste
I'm generally wary of artificial flavored drinks, mainly because I don't like the taste of artificial sweeteners and seem to have a keen pick up on their unpleasant after taste. (But, that's just me.) So, being a zero calorie drink using sucralose as the sweetener, I wasn't expecting it to taste all that great...
Xenergy comes in a variety of flavors including Cran Razz, Big Apple, Clear, mango guava, and pink lemon. I've tried the Big Apple and Cran Razz flavors. Cran Razz is a decent tasting drink - better than I had anticipated, and served chilled, it's quite refreshing.
Big Apple flavor was quite good, and I enjoyed it slightly more than Cran Razz. It's also a very refreshing drink (served chilled), and you can taste the light natural apple flavor. Every gulp of this drink made the stomach feel distinctly warm inside. Taste-wise I'd give both drinks 4/5.
However, being artificially sweetened with sucralose, I can taste the unpleasant after taste of the sweetener, which I never enjoy. Overall, it's a decent energy drink, although I can't say that I noticed any significant improvement in my mental focus. To sum things up, Xenergy is a nice energy drink for any time or any situation throughout the day, but if you're looking for something more "hardcore" to get you through your grueling workouts, you'll need to look elsewhere.
