XS Citrus Blast’s energy comes from B-vitamins, amino acids and adaptogenic herbs. Its energy did not last as long as some of the XS energy drinks I reviewed but kept me alert and focus for about an hour. Two things that concerned me about XS energy drinks are their synthetic ingredients, such as synthetic vitamins, and sucralose, an artificial sweetener. One of the synthetic vitamins found in this flavor is vitamin B12. It contains 4,900 percent of the percent daily value. To be safe you should limit one can per few days or less.

Adding a tropical flavor to the XS line up is an excellent move for XS because it added something different to their energy drink line-up. XS Tropical Blast comes in two version, one has caffeine and the other doesn’t. Some people like to drink XS energy drinks because most of them contain 0 carbs, 0 sugar and 8 calories per can. Although these are nice features, it used unhealthy ingredients to obtain these features, such as artificial sweetener.
XS Cherry Blast is packed with adaptogenic herbs, energy amino acids and B-vitamins to boost your energy. XS Cherry Blast contains no sugar, no carbs, only 8 calories and is Kosher certified.

These features sound incredible but are they as good as they sound. By doing a little research I found out that XS Peach Tea Blast is full of synthetic vitamins. Worst of all it contains sucralose, an artificial sweetener known by independent researchers as a neurotoxin. Please drink it in moderate levels.
The energy level from XS Tea Berry was decent. Its energy rush was more toward endurance energy instead of intense quick energy. Its energy rush can last over an hours. The nice thing about Tea Berry’s energy rush was that there were no bad side affects. Although, I did experience minor stomachaches and headaches. The side effects are usually caused by its synthetic ingredients and artificial sweetener (sucralose).
Get all the energy without the sugar and caffeine is what XS Cranberry Grape Blast is all about. This energy drink has no carbs, no sugar, only 8 calories and is available caffeine free.

Also, most of its B-vitamins are synthetic.
