Moms are tired, Part 2. This time, it’s organic

envigor-8When Khroma Herbal Products contacted me to sample a product, they sent a few suggestions like diaper cream and an immunity support tincture. Things I could certainly use. However, one look at the website and I was like, “Give me the ENERGY STUFF!”

In my previous Moms are Tired post, I reviewed V-8’s answer to our sleepless nights and non-stop toddler chasing. I’ve never really been a fan of energy drinks (unless you mix them with vodka), and energy pills make me feel weird and jittery, so the idea of trying an all-natural tincture appealed to me.

Everything Khroma sells is organic, vegan, ethically sourced and eco-friendly. I gave the Envigor-8 a try. I like to research my products a little and found it humorous that this is also the same name of a popular male enhancement product. So, just to be clear, their product is an energy booster, not a penis booster.

According the their site, Envigor-8 is “The world’s most effective organic energy supplement.” I often wonder about how you substantiate a claim like this. Like, maybe I should start calling my blog “The world’s most amazing mom blog” and see if it catches on.

OK, back to the review – I gave it a try with the help of my handy assistant. He also wanted to try it but I said Nooooooooo. lol

I started with just a dropper full to make sure it didn’t make me jittery and then worked my way up to the recommended 3 dropper fulls. The taste is weird and herbal at first, but after a few tries I actually really started to like the unique flavor. I did not get a sudden burst of energy, but more like a little sustained boost. After a few days of use, I started to look forward a little afternoon treat and pick-me-up. No jitters, no heart racing, no crash. I actually liked it so much that I will probably buy myself a bottle when this runs out.

I had a few questions for them while writing the review. Their answers are in red:

1) For the dosage of 3 dropper fulls, is that supposed to be a full dropper? Or half? It only sucks up a little each time so I wasn’t really clear on what a dropper full was
The amount that is sucked up from one squeeze is considered one dropper full. It will usually be about half full. 
2) Is it best to take it in the morning? Or if you like drinking coffee in the morning, should you wait until the afternoon?
I would suggest taking it in the afternoon if you drink coffee in the morning. 
3) Should you only take it once a day? Or wait a certain number of hours before taking again?
I like to take it one in the morning and one in the afternoon, personally. You can take more if you want to. The dose is fairly small and the ingredients aren’t dangerous so taking too much isn’t a concern
4) Did you guys know there was an Envigor8 that is a male sex enhancement supplement? That’s the first thing that pops up when searching the name. Just wondering if you have run into any  confusion with that, lol
Ha! I didn’t know that!
5) Is there anything people should be concerned about when taking this supplement? Like avoiding caffeinated drinks or anything like that.
Not really. It is fine to take with caffeinated beverages and doesn’t have any serious interactions
6) It has a very unique taste. At first it was weird, but then it really grew on me. Is there added flavor, or is that the natural taste
I love the taste too! That is the natural taste of the herbs
