Of the all Activate flavors that we sampled, this was our favorite as far as taste is concerned. That's the result of a good choice of flavor to go with the stevia-sweetened mixture, keeping the aftertaste at bay and delivering a fruit flavor that's pleasing to the palate. From a functional point of view, this one is the Vitamin variety, which, as the name implies, means that the product is fortified with vitamins. In this case, they've given the product 100 percent RDA of 5 essential vitamins, including A, D, E, C, and B vitamins. They've also added pomegranate extract, although the benefit of this isn't explained on the label (antioxidants, we assume). Packaging is a square shaped 16 oz. plastic bottle with raised water droplets (which are the Activate logo) around the neck. It's a clean and polished presentation, complete with easy to understand instructional text on the back of the bottle. However, we are not sure how Vitamin, which, unlike some of the other Activate varieties, isn't actually a function, will perform in the marketplace. Still, it's a nice tasting product and the function and appearance of the cap are sure to catch some eyes.
