Of the flavors that make up the Tonic Health Shot line, this one was our least favorite. The reason is the shot’s flavor, which tastes overly medicinal (think cough syrup) to the point where it’s not up to the same standard as its linemates. And for us, it also undermines the function, Focus, since the flavor is definitely something that will get your attention. Functionally, the product has caffeine (120mg), gotu kola, guarana, and ginkgo biloba. Considering that this product has more caffeine than your typical 8 oz. energy drink as well as other functional ingredients that are found in energy drinks, it’s hard to understand what makes this a focus shot rather than just another energy shot. Ultimately, the harsh flavor and lack of functional differentiation make this a variety that we’d skip.
