Q Energy Drink

Heads up, Zoners!  We have a new product in our Zone store: Q Energy Drink!  We believe in this innovative and local product, and can’t wait to tell you all about it. Here’s some info from the Q Energy website to tell you a bit more about this product:

Q Energy Drink is way better for you than the other stuff that’s out there. Q offers clean energy, support for your health, improved performance and a whole lot more. We designed it with high quality natural ingredients, and it’s approved by Health Canada.

Q uses quercetin, a natural antioxidant, to deliver energy at a cellular level. Quercetin is found in small amounts in apples, grapes, berries and other fruits as well as leaves and grains. Quercetin shares the anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties of other antioxidants, but studies have also shown that it can provide energy by increasing the body’s natural ability to convert calories into energy. In other words, instead of simply adding more calories, Q helps you burn the calories you already have more efficiently. That means you have more energy that you come by honestly. It isn’t a quick fix or a short-cut; it is a healthy choice for more energy.  

The benefits of Q go beyond delivering healthier energy in a better way. In addition to quercetin, Q also features the perfect blend of ginseng, rhodiola, gingko biloba, green tea and vitamins, making it ideal to take every day. What’s more, to keep you going when you’re moving and help you recover when you’re not, Q provides the right level of electrolytes for optimum performance.”

If you would like to try Q and see for yourself, we have some in the lobby and are selling the 10 packs for $17.50.  You can also buy a packet individually for $2.00, and throw it in your water bottle on the spot if you like!
