Product Review: Phizz

Hydration station on-the-go

Effervescent tablets are nothing new, as their origins date back to the late 19th century. Boasting portability and ease-of-use, they have a range of applications for the consumption of supplements and pharmaceutical products. Most consumers only come across them in the checkout line, where they may pick up a tube of Vitamin C tablets when they feel a cold coming on. Companies like Phizz are reviving the tablets with novel formulations to keep up with modern lifestyles. 

Founded in London in 2015 and made in Germany, Phizz tablets have a hypotonic formula packed with five electrolytes and 13 vitamins and minerals, which are designed to aid hydration and help your body release energy. According to Co-founder Daniel Cray, the team worked with a neuroscientist from Oxford University and a Swiss laboratory to create a hybrid formula intended to aid travel fatigue, athletic performance, hangovers, and general wellness. 

Simply pop a tablet or two in water and watch it dissolve in around a minute. As the name suggests, the resulting beverage is slightly fizzy. I tried the Orange flavor and although it tastes artificial, as expected, it’s comparable to any other sports drinks on the market. While I didn’t feel a difference in energy levels, I did have a rather successful workout session after drinking Phizz (although it could be down to a host of other factors). The tablets, which have the ‘Amazon’s Choice’ seal of approval, are raved about for being a miracle hangover cure. 

Phizz tubes are made from recycled materials, and the company also hopes to reduce use of plastic bottles and cans by encouraging consumers to consume the product with reusable containers.  

The tablets currently come in two flavors, ‘Orange’ and ‘Apple & Blackcurrant.’ A tube of 10 retails for £4.99, or 20 tablets for £7.99, and can be purchased on the Phizz website, Amazon, and several other retailers and e-tailers. –MC
