Review: B Record Plus: a new energy drink for (not just) mums!

>> Tuesday, 14 June 2011

about a week ago, I saw a post on the british mummy blogging network by Karin from @cafebebe asking for people who might be interested in a new energy drink/food supplement that came onto the UK market on the 8th June this year

I turned vegan almost a year ago now after reading the book Skinny Bitch, as someone who suffers from major food phobias, this was a real eye opener & I'm so grateful I found it!
but the one thing the book did turn me against as well as meat/dairy was caffeine, I had been a heavy diet coke/coffee drinker for years and heavily relied on it to keep me going throughout the day & to keep pace with the kids! but since giving it up, i've never had that feeling of "added" energy!
I've felt amazing for giving up the "junk" tho and my headaches have become more tolerable, I noticed I was sleeping so much better too, but without my boost of caffeine every day I felt like something was missing. I looked at lots of the "energy" drinks on the market, but all of them contained some crazy ingredients or lots of sugar & I wasn't about to start drinking them, another thing was that they would give me HUGE energy spikes & rushes that would make me feel even worse once they'd worn off, so I didn't drink anything.. 

but seeing this new drink advertised on the BMB network, I read the ingredients, re-read the ingredients and was impressed to see that none of the nasty ingredients that the other energy drinks contained were present! an added bonus to the drinks were the added vitamin B12. as a vegan, getting enough B12 into your diet can be tricky (especially if your not always very good at eating all the right GOOD foods!!!) so was thinking YAY! an easier more lazy way to get my intake!

here is the jargon from the company about the drinks/supplements:
B Record Plus is a liquid food supplement that’s been developed by international pharmaceutical company sigma-tau to provide sustained intellectual and physical energy for run down people.
It has been developed using established data; has a sustained effect (unlike other temporary boost energy drinks), has no caffeine and is made from naturally occurring substances including:

·         Vitamin B12
·         Four amino acids - L-Glutamine, L-Serine, L-Theorine and L-Arginine
·         L-Carnitine

B Record Plus reaches its full potential within 2-3 days and it’s recommended that you take it for ten days, though you can take it for as long as you like.

It’s recommended for people who need an extra energy boost and is ideal for:

·         Busy mums
·         Mothers recovering from having a baby
·         People moving house
·         People sitting exams
·         People recovering from an injury
·         Business people working under intense pressure

It’s also suitable for people over 12 years of age.

It can be bought from our website at with ten days of the supplement being sold for £12.99 - still cheaper then having a Red Bull or a latte a day!

How B Record Plus works

B Record Plus aids your body’s metabolism. Metabolism is a set of chemical reactions that occur in our cells needed to maintain life.

Metabolic processes are important for the release and storage of energy and for the reproduction and repair of cells.

The rate of recovery and the ability of a body to repair itself is related to the speed and efficiency of the body’s metabolic processes. For metabolic processes to be at the best, a body needs the right amount of micronutrients.

B Record Plus is a specific balance of micronutrients developed using more than 60 years of knowledge of how the body works and what affects it.

Metabolic processes can be slowed down by not having enough micronutrients by the following factors:

·         Reduced intake of nutrients due to poor diet
·         Ageing – which reduces the efficiency of your metabolism and the absorbtion of micronutrients
·         Disease – which results in oxidative stress caused by the body’s response to disease conditions
·         Increased demand due to periods of high energy need, i.e. exercise, convalescence and periods of stress

As a result our bodies during these periods crave more micronutrients than they can get through a normal balanced diet. B Record Plus helps to top them up.

Here’s how each ingredient in each bottle of B Record Plus helps to give you sustainable energy.

Amount in each bottle
Optimises metabolic activity to increase energy supply.
Plays a fundamental role transporting long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria where they can be used to make energy.
L-Arginine HCL
Participates in the synthesis of creatine, an important energy substrate for muscle contraction.
Plays an important role in energy production and protein metabolism.  Essential for cellular metabolism in central nervous system.
Especially important to proper functioning of the brain and central nervous system by serving at substrates for the formation of neurotransmitters L-Serine is an amino acid  required for fat metabolism , neuronal  membrane function and cell to cell communication.
Essential amino acid especially important to proper functioning of the brain and central nervous system. Precursor for neurotransmitter glycine
Hydroxicobalmin (vit B12)
Favours fats, carbohydrates and amino-acid metabolism . It supports blood formation. Protects nerves.

B Record Plus comes in packs of ten bottles that you take one a day. You just twist off the cap, shake it and drink it.

The best time to use it is before breakfast on an empty stomach and the minimum time to take it is about ten days, though it will start working after two or three days. There’s nothing to stop you continuing to take it.

B Record Plus, which is currently on sale across Europe and the US, was launched on June 8th in the UK with Nell McAndrew, who was also the first person here to try it.

i'm currently on day 3 of the supplements and although i haven't noticed a huge difference in myself, I do feel slightly perkier, and less stressy (if thats even possible!)
the drinks are so easy to take, a reverse twist to open the magic (the powdery ingredients!) give a good shake, then twist off and drink! 
I was wondering what they would taste like, the leaflet said a blackcurrent flavour and it certainly is! not a strong flavour or a powdery one, but an almost " I could drink more of you" taste!
and as they're a small drink, you can drink it down in one without worrying and carry on with your breakfast routine! I have been leaving it 20-30mins after taking the supplement before I eat my breakfast, as I want it to get working straight away! but i'm sure you can eat straight after if you wish!
I'm hoping that after the 10 days is up, I will notice a bigger and more subtle change to myself, my energy levels & my moods! 
I'll be reporting back on the 10th day with my final verdict.. which im sure will be a great one!

I haven't been paid for this review, other than the 10 days trial of the supplement energy drinks
