Urban Detox - Citrus Pricky Pear

Function Drinks

BevNET Review

Last Updated: 12/18/2009 4:36 PM

Function's Urban Detox formulation is a bright orange citrus-prickly pear flavor. Like the other varieties, it has an isotonic / sports drink flavor that does a great job of quenching your thirst. However, thirst quenching ability isn't the real purpose of this product. Instead, as the name suggests, it is designed to fight hangovers and to "rid your lungs and sinuses of airborne pollutants". "How does it do this?" you may ask. Well, this physician-developed product has added N-acetyl cysteine (an antioxidant) as well as prickly pear extract (an anti-inflammatory). As with most functional products, we can't vouch for its efficacy, but we can say that calling a product "urban detox" could backfire, especially since the word "detox" has a rather negative connotation. We'd suggest a bit more emphasis on the actual flavor and a bit less on the supposed function of the drink.
