I have had both the orange and new mango/orange flavour and I ADORE the taste! I am not a sweet tooth though, so it's a great pick me up for someone who doesn't favour sugary energy drinks. Perfect in the morning with some toast or couple hours after lunch at work to lift the levels!
Gives me energy for my day and workouts!
If I want to get up and get my workout in, I just pop one in a water bottle and drink. Within 20 mins I'm a new person! I like that it's more natural than 5 hour energy, and doesn't give me heart burn like 5 hr either. Taste could be better, but other than that no complaints! Just make sure to eat with it or you'll be jittery
I mixed it in orange/pineapple juice
First time I tried this, I couldn't get the full four ounces down. I have chronic mono so I really need an extra energy boost from B-12 and minerals. So instead of giving up, the next day I mixed it with 4 oz of orange-pineapple juice. No problem getting it down. Works great! Really glad I found this product.
GRRREAT pick me up.
I bought Berocca hoping it would give Some more energy and help with Alertness. I use to take five hour energy Pomegranate but that product tasted Awful too. I would recommend Berocca to anyone wanting to improve their Alertness. I use to LOVE NOS energy drink you know the Souped up Mountain DEW NRG drink.. It Kept a wake for four or five hour's BUT the come down was as if some one just unplugged the cord, MAJOR BUMMER. Anyway I love this stuff!!!!!!! ( BIG WARNING ) if you plan on getting some rest or SLEEP DON'T Take this with in FIVE hours....OH and Don't be Alarmed if you notice your urine is ATOMIC ORANGE. I gave this product Four stars and would have given Five stars if it Just did not have this moms medicine TASTE. or A one-a-day Vitamin taste. PRO: Works GREAT CONS: The TASTE, it Just Tastes HORRIBLE , Like the taste of a Vitamin Super B complex w/liver & yeast
Looks great on the box but too many artificial chemicals
Whatever it is that's in Barocca makes me extremely sick and I get a horrible fake sweet taste in my mouth for the whole day that doesn't go away after Barocca. This is the third time I bought a pack of it and each time I noticed how terribly sick I feel and poisoned. I believe it's the phenanlyne (sorry can't be bothered to spell it) or the artificial sugars. But it's horrible. I'd rather you guys just put crappy sugar and calories in than poison me with fake sugars and fake colours and flavours! I won't buy again and I feel stupid for buying them three times now in the hope I am wrong but I am not.
Finally something that works for me!
I've been using this product for two months and it has kept me going through my shift as an overnight grocery stocker at HEB. I use to take five hour energy but this product is the right one for me. I would advise to take it for at least a whole week before you decide that it's not for you.
focus and energy with out jitters
turns your urine same color as the beverage
Didn't provide what I was looking for
I bought Berocca hoping that it would provide what it promises but instead I got nothing out of it. No energy and no mental clarity at all. Not even the slightest hint of a pick me up. On top of that it tastes horrible. The taste was like unsweetened orange kool aid mixed with crushed aspirin. Also not to mention the extremely high price. I bought the 10 count container at Walgreens and it was almost $12. Such a waste.
Pure gold for this silver surfer
I am 70,still work, often over forty hours a week caring for people in their own homes.Having severe arthritis I do not sleep too well and after seeing the Berocca T.V. ad thought maybe it would give me a bit of a lift to start the day. I truly cannot believe what a difference it has made, way beyond my expectations. Obviously it has no beneficial effect whatsoever on my arthritis but the feeling of alertness and well being it gives enables me to cope with the joint pain I endure with so much more ease. I feel alive,alert and ready for whatever...the day, or night throws at me. I take no prescription medications at all so the big improvement in my general well being can only be down to Berocca. It does make your urine very yellow so if I ever have to give a sample I ensure I take one late in the day.
Best thing EVER!!
My brother told me to try berocca-He uses it to concentrate on his studies and found it really helpful.
I have low iron and suffer from persistent fatigue; also a side-effect of the medication I take. Although I enjoy coffee, caffeine does absolutely nothing to me. I have a constant struggle just to stay awake at work. When the fatigue is particularly bad, I take Berocca. I'm not a fan of the original or the Orange flavour, so I don't usually take Berocca unless I'm really desperate. Although in saying that; just yesterday I bought the new " Berocca Boost" and quite enjoyed the flavor!
I would recommend Berocca to anyone wanting to improve their focus and mental alertness. I don't know what I would do without this product!
Berocca not worth it!
I bought Berocca hoping it would give a little more energy and help with mental sharpness, but that has not been the case. I don't drink coffee or caffeinated drinks, and I workout at least four times a week. So, I thought that something with caffeine would have an affect. After seven days of taking in the morning...nothing. I feel the same level of tiredness, and lack of focus.
Better than other supplements
I've been trying many different multi vitamins but I don't get any better result. I don't need too much Iron. My wife bought this for me from Woolworth when it's on sale. I was hesitant to gave a try, but I have to. So I started reading the ingredient and benefit, it looks good.
Vitamin C for immune system and anti oxidant, specially in Summer, colds and other viruses are rampant. B for turning carbohydrates into energy, Berocca has a complete amount of vit. B that most male needs. Calcium for muscle contractions, bone and tendons. zinc is go...
Because a lot of people kept telling me this was the best thing to take being under stress I thought I would give it a try. The only thing Berocca does for me is making me nervous and plain aggressive. I thought this would be only in the beginning, but the longer I took Berocca worse it got
Not for everyone
Watch out for Aspartame !
My teenage son had always been a happy kid . Then at 15 he started taking Berroca at breakfast at the end of last year. After a few weeks he suddenly started to experience some severe symptoms of depression , to the extent that he started to cut himself . We were all devasteted ! Doing some extensive research I found out that Aspartame , used as a sweetener in Berocca , can cause many severe health problems , including depression and anxiety ! We will stay away from this product in the future !
This product has helped me in SO many ways! Over a period of 15yrs I was always feeling lightly depressed, tired, moody, stressed and also had red pimples (with no heads that hurt like crazy) growing all over my face 1-2 at a time which has scarred over 9yrs apparently theyre stress related. I take the tablet form and swallow one every morning with breaki, Within a week I felt different, so much more vibrant, more energetic and most of all my stress levels are down to around 2/10 now (used to be around 8/10). I didnt even know it was the Berocc...a doing the fix until my Husband mentioned it. I have not stopped taking Berocca now for over 3 months and things have stayed great. After about 2 weeks my face started to clear up, no more red pimples but the scarring is still there so Im using Bio-oil to help clear that up. My advice - give it a try!! We're also trying to conceive and Berocca is fine to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. It even contains Folic Acid which helps if conceiving. Everything, it has changed my life Can be expensive if buying from the local Supermarket, buy it from GroceryRun.com (much much cheaper)
ok, you might think i am crazy, but i don't take this for energy, i take it to ward off impending colds! It works! I don't get colds anymore. As soon as i feel like i might be getting something i take one, sometimes 2! apparently its the zinc that might do it - but it seems to work differently to the zinc pills alone! if you've seen or heard of the american one (air borne)that is supposed to fight off colds etc, then this is the same, if not better, and certainly cheaper!!
Questions & Answers
Are the Barocca tablets suitable for people with type 2 diabetes . I’ve been told the effervescent tablets are not , as they are packed with sugar and aspartame which outweigh the benefits?
