Gluco Review

I think when you become a parent, even though you need a lot of energy to keep up with your kids, there seems to be a distinct lack of it, I always feel like I am running on empty somehow. I was recently sent a couple of products from Gluco to review. Gluco is a company that want to provide a natural, fast acting glucose that will provide your body with that much needed boost to keep on moving!!


Gluco have a great range of tablets and a handy juice. The tabs are available in a variety of fruity flavours. I was asked to review a pack of their Gluctabs and one of their Glucojuices. I opted for the juicy raspeberry tabs and I was also sent the very berry juice.

I think the first thing to note is that these are free from anything artificial, sodium and caffeine, no nasty stuff to be seen of tasted and they are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans too.

I tried the Glucojuice first and I have to say I was impressed, if I am honest, I was expecting something really sweet and I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was not the case. The size of the bottle means that is perfect to just have in your bag in case you need that little kick up the butt throughout the day. Providing a measured dose of 15g of Glucose, it is perfect for when you need to wake up fast, I definitely felt more energised after drinking it, much better than any energy drink!! However each 60 ml bottle is priced at £1.55 per bottle, I don't think this is something that I would purchase all of the time

I had the Glucotabs in juicy raspeberry to try but they are also available in tangy orange, zest lemon & lime and blueberry burst. Each tablet contains 4g glucose and the pack comes with 10 tabs inside. Again stored in a handy sized container, they would fit into your bag perfectly. I was a bit worried about the size of each tab, quite big in my opinion but again extremely tasty, I did find them slightly chalky when chewing them but they didn't leave any nasty tastes of textures in my mouth once I had swallowed them. Not quite as effective as the juice but still made me feel more awake. A pack of 10 tabs costs a small 89p, a very reasonable price.

Overall I was impressed with both products. Available at online or at Morrisons, Boots, Asda, Superdrug or Sainsburys, defnitely worth checking out if you are in need of something to fight off fatigue!!!


Disclaimer : I was sent these products free of charge for reviewing purposes however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
