Have you ever wished that you could get all of the benefits of an energy drink without having the energy rush (and crash) that comes along with all of that caffeine? Perhaps you are caffeine-sensitive and steer clear of drinks like coffee and energy products for fear of the results, but you still are looking for something to help you get the job done?
Slow Cow is a Canadian company that was launched in 2008 to cater to just this problem. This “anti” energy drink seeks to provide mental focus through the use of eight “natural” ingredients while simultaneously relaxing your mind and body without causing drowsiness. These ingredients are made up of chamomile, other herbs and plant supplements, in addition to Hops, Potassium, and Sodium. Much like coffee and tea, this beverage is sugar free.
According to reviewers that have tasted the drink, the main criticism is its lack of flavor. This arguably is a natural way to avoid the cloying aftertaste of other artificial energy drinks and even coffee. Overall, if you find yourself in Canada or Australia (the two places where Slow Cow is available through retail), and are interested in trying this alternative to other mental enhancers, check it out, but be prepared to not feel the energy rush or be blown away by the innocuous taste of the drink
