Flo Fusion Energy Drink - Celsius

.Disclosure: Aproducts were sent on behalf of Celsius for review purposes only!  All opinions are completely honest. There are no affiliate links within this post.

Go ahead and ditch those energy drinks! YOU know- those that are filled to the brim with sugar and calories. You definitely won't be needing OR wanting them anymore. The Flo Fusion Pre-workout Drink gives NATURAL vitamin induced energy AND tastes amazing (+ non-gritty YAY).. Choosing won't even be an option once you get a taste of how juice like it is. It's even tastier than flavored water.

Celsius has partnered with international multi platinum and Grammy nominated music sensation and fitness enthusiast, Flo Rida, on the latest Celsius product – Flo FusionCelsius Flo Fusion is powered by scientifically tested, calorie burning MetaPlus®. This means that Celsius Flo Fusion is clinically proven to burn fat, enhance metabolism and burn 100 calories and more with every serving.

 Simply mix one scoop or packet of Celsius Flo Fusion into 12-16 oz. of water and drink 15-20 minutes prior to training. For best results, use Celsius Flo Fusion as an energy drink before exercise in combination with a healthy diet.

 Celsius Flo Fusion is the perfect, healthier alternative to the plethora of sugar filled, high calorie options on the market. 

Celsius Flo Fusion also contains 100% of the daily serving of several vitamins and minerals. The B-Vitamins found in Celsius Flo Fusion are not only essential for metabolism and energy production; they also help support your adrenal glands, which aid in recovering from fatigue. Vitamin C supports your immune system and Biotin assists in breaking down fats and protein. Chromium helps control hunger by normalizing healthy blood.

As a mom, it just makes SENSE for me to choose Flo Fusion. You know children are energy siphoning midgets, right? I don't even want to THINK about how much money I've spent on overpriced energy drinks and supplements. The cheapest ones are 2.00 per can.. yikes~! Flo Fusion can be bought on Amazon + Free Shipping for .88 per serving instead.

I LOVE that iT tastes pretty darn good. Usually health drinks and shakes aren't so thoughtful of taste unless they ARE crammed with sugars. No more sacrificing taste for health. You'll want MORE + it'll help you drink more water.
