Description
Patented Blend of Quercetin + Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C & E


FRS is a healthy energy drink that takes you up a level and keeps you there. FRS contains quercetin - a natural, powerful antioxidant found in blueberries, red onions, apples and cocoa. Quercetin helps extend your body's natural adrenaline as well as neutralizes the oxidants in your body that cause fatigue. Joining quercetin to keep your energy on the level are key vitamins and potent antioxidants from green tea leaves. Inside one can is a daily allowance of enhanced mental focus, increased performance and the energy to keep you going. So rise up, stay up and enjoy your day.


This can of FRS supplies the same amount of flavonoid antioxidants as 3 servings of blueberries, or 8 servings of red onions, or 10 servings of raspberries.

Health Notes

Bitter Orange

Bitter Orange
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel
Bitter orange has traditionally been used as a digestive aid.(more)
Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia.(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange contains synephrine, which might promote weight loss. (more)
Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel

Bitter herbs are thought to stimulate digestive function by increasing saliva production and promoting both stomach acid and digestive enzyme production.1 As a result, they are particularly used when there is low stomach acid but not in heartburn (where too much stomach acid could initially exacerbate the situation). These herbs literally taste bitter. Some examples of bitter herbs include greater celandine, wormwood, gentian,dandelion, blessed thistle, yarrow, devil's claw, bitter orange, bitter melon, juniper, andrographis, prickly ash, and centaury.2. Bitters are generally taken either by mixing 1-3 ml tincture into water and sipping slowly 10-30 minutes before eating, or by making tea, which is also sipped slowly before eating.

Very little published research is available on the traditional uses of bitter orange as a digestive aid and sedative. The German Commission E has approved the use of bitter orange for loss of appetite and dyspeptic ailments.3 One test tube study showed bitter orange to potently inhibit rotavirus (a cause of diarrhea in infants and young children).4 Bitter orange, in an herbal combination formula, reportedly normalized stool function and completely eased intestinal pain in 24 people with non-specific colitis and, again in an herbal combination formula, normalized stool function in another 32 people with constipation.5, 6

Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia. There is no clinical trial data to support its efficacy in this regard. The usual amount of tincture used is 2 to 3 ml at bedtime.1, 2

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructionsAlthough historically used to stimulate appetite, bitter orange is frequently found in modern weight-loss formulas because synephrine is similar to the compound ephedrine, which is known to promote weight loss. In one study of 23 overweight adults, participants taking a daily intake of bitter orange (975 mg) combined with caffeine (525 mg) and St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum, 900 mg) for six weeks lost significantly more body weight and fat than the control group.1 No adverse effects on heart rate or blood pressure were found. Bitter orange standardized to contain 4 to 6% synephrine had an anti-obesity effect in rats. However, the amount used to achieve this effect was accompanied by cardiovascular toxicity and mortality.2

      Comments about NEW SUN NUTRITION 1008503 FRS® Healthy Energy® - Orange:

      First and foremost, some of these people reviewing things are out of their minds. It's 90 calories, not 140. Secondly, all these buzz kill freaks that want a quick rockstar high, aren't going to get it from this. It's meant to be consumed and have a sustained, prolonged energy. The whole point into being hydrated by water, coconut water, and supplement it with FRS, is to be LEVEL HEADED, not any highs or dips. True hydration is about staying even. Also, calories are very over rated, it's about what the calories are about. Obviously, a block of cheese at 500 calories, as opposed to a ton of baby spinach leaves totally 500 calories is a lot different. I refuse to consume sucralose, which is FAKE, and man made. Many times zero calorie drinks or foods are often not metabolized by the body in a good manner.

      Are You Kidding me- 140 Calories

      • Boosts Energy

      Cons

      • Has Side Effects
      • Very high in calories

      Best Uses

      • Before Workout

      Comments about NEW SUN NUTRITION 1008503 FRS® Healthy Energy® - Orange:

      You must be kidding. These guys (FRS) overcharge for a product that, in the regular version contains 140 calories per 1 serving. From a nutrition standpoint that is ridiculous. Either get the low calorie version or stay with other endurance drinks that less calories. Also the blend of vitamins and nutrients would only be helpful for true high endurance, strenuous exercise. It will do nothing for the average athelete that a cup of coffee won't do.

      Bad product, horrible marketing campaign, grossly overpriced for what you are getting and no value to the average athlete. Save your Money- SKIP IT
