I'm a skeptic when it comes to ingesting beauty-related supplements. I've tried the Phytophanere Dietary Supplements For Hair & Nails, which were supposed to make my nails and hair grow faster and stronger, but instead they gave me nothing but blemishes. So when I learned about this Antioxidant Water Booster ($35) from Dr. Brandt, I sort of dismissed the product altogether.
However, lately I've been reading lots of positive reviews about the blueberry flavor, so I decided to give it a go. Supposedly, the antioxidant content in one dose is the same as you'd find in 15 cups of home-brewed green tea.
My guess it that it's getting attention because there has been so much written about the powerful effects of antioxidants lately. They help protect your cells from free radical damage, keep your organs healthy, and they may even contribute to fighting cancer and heart disease.
As it turns out, the Water Booster is indeed delicious. I did a taste test to see what I was getting into before I drank the full glass of water. It's flavorful and sweet, but it doesn't contain any calories or even one iota of caffeine or sugar.
Each bottle (there are five different kinds) contains enough for 60 servings. All you have to do is shake it, add one dropper to eight ounces of water, mix, and chug. I've only had three cups and I don't notice a difference in my skin, but as the saying goes, you look better if you feel better. Knowing that I am doing something good for my body definitely makes me feel better, too.
