My heart pounded at 220kph when I learned that the prize was a shiny, high-def, personal camera. This is no longer a petty writing contest. THIS. IS. WAR! Unfortunately you can't join. Let me be specific. I don't want you to join. Prior to joining you need to traverse the valley of the shadow of death. Jump off from a 50-foot cliff and onto a sea where flesh-eating sharks await. You get the drift. As much as I can I want to cut down my competition. Again. You can't join. You don't want to join. Nuff said. Now before you stop reading and saying your "boos!", let me tell you that this article ain't going to be another lame, kiss-ass, time-wasting hullabaloo like those you will get from the others (I told you this is war).
This review is going to be as witty, honest, and true to the bone as it can get. I know I'm rusty but I'll do my best. The folks from Unilab may end up hating me. They may even disqualify me if they want to. Worst, forever ban me from any Unilab-related events. However as Chris (Everingham of Volcanoes) have said, our readers are our responsibility. I'd say flame suit on!
Let me kick off by saying that the criteria alone is difficult to comply. Making a lot of stuff as cohesive as possible and without losing focus. I even have to throw in the tagline, "Build Stamina with Enervon Activ: Keep Training, Keep Performing!". How am I gonna do that without losing my cool? There! I said it! That's one item off my chest. So let's get things rolling by saying that this review is about one of the latest offering of Unilab - Enervon Activ. If you've been joining Unilab events you are pretty much aware of its existence not unless you are too engrossed of beating your own PB (personal best), or someone elses, that you totally missed out the huge banners and the multivitamins inside the race packet
"Enervon Activ is a supplement formulated to build stamina for sports-active people" according to the flyers. Common logic will say that Activ will boost your energy (Panax Ginseng, Royal Jelly and B-Complex) and strengthen one's immunity (Antioxidant vitamins A, C, E and Zinc) simply by looking at its ingredients. Not to mention the so-called Mineral Sium 5X (Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium) for better muscle control. But does it work? Practitioners of Chinese traditional medicine consider ginseng the "king of herbs". Perhaps for a very good reason. There were studies made that it can help manage blood sugar, combat fatigue, and fight infection. Hold on. You don't need me to tell you about this. You yourself can search for references thru the power of Google. You may also want to check out History Channel's "Appalachian Outlaws" to learn more about the ancient herb
I know what you are thinking. There are other supplements like Rogin-E and Pharmaton that also offer the same stuff - Ginseng and Royal Jelly. Following the spiel of our local TV and radio broadcaster Miguel "Mike" Enriquez, Enervon Activ offers more of the potent ingredients (see the table below). So who is the clear winner? Immuvit! With its whooping 90mg of Ginseng. Problem is, it doesn't offer Royal Jelly. Boo hoo. Unilab's clear-cut advantage is the PRICE per capsule and a generous dose of ginseng and royal jelly. Enervon Activ trumps the other three. Can't believe it meself. Do visit Mercury Drug, Watsons, 7-Eleven, or the nearest "suking tindahan" to confirm my claim. With the savings you get, you can buy yourself a fat and juicy burger every week!

Six million dollar question remains ... does Enervon Activ work? Let me put you on a cliffhanger. The answer to that questions deserves another article. Besides I am already sleepy. Hope I'd still get the chance and that my fingers aren't chopped off by tomorrow. What do you do while you wait? Join their digital promo and get a chance to run a half marathon in Angkor Wat.
