KOS pronounced as K-AW-SS, is a brand of plant-based nutritional supplements which ‘supports your journey – transition, at your own pace – into a plant-centric nourishment lifestyle’ by promoting balance. Its superfoods are packaged both attractively and effectively, ultimately aiming to provide ‘vibrant, sustainable, organic health and well-being’ around.
The Product: Ingredients and Benefits
Made with KOS Energy blend, Chicory Root Extract, Filtered Water, Pectin, Citric Acid, Natural Orange colour, Natural Lemon Flavour, Locust Bean Gum, Niacin and Vitamin B12, these gummies are packed with the energy you need to start your morning and focus through the day.
Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in converting the food we eat into energy. It helps with energy and concentration by supporting the function of the mitochondria, which are the energy-producing powerhouses of our cells.
Vitamin B12 is involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, which are the primary sources of energy for the body. It also helps to support a healthy immune system by playing a role in the production of white blood cells, which help to fight off infections and disease. Lastly, it is involved in the production of neurotransmitters, thus important to maintaining a healthy brain function.
Testing the Product: Packaging and Taste Test
Tucked in a brightly coloured biodegradable circular tube with a removal slide up lid, the gummies are individually packed, making it so easy for your rush hour mornings. Individual packaging means you will not feel the stickiness of the gum on your fingers as much and it will not melt into a giant gum blob in a container. What we like about the packing is that the colors are a ‘perk me up’ to the groggy mornings. It is easy to throw one into your bag and have it on the way to your daily activities.
The thick gummy melts in your mouth, and the citrus taste hits you. There is no smell to the gummies, and if you are a strong fan of citrus, this one is for you! After a few chews, the lemon citrus taste lingers. There is also a tinge of sourness at the back of your throat. With 3 chews, you would have already swallowed the entire piece and what is left is the citrus after taste.
As the gummies are harder than regular gummy sweets, KOS’ gummies do not stick in between your teeth, where you find yourself having to remove the residue.
The product does not contain wheat, gluten, dairy eggs, soy, tree nuts, shellfish, sesame, fish or gelatin.
What others say about the product?
‘Really great energy and bonus for the quality and top taste. Cute and lively packaging.!’ – Customer on Iherb
Summary: Should you get yourself KOS Energy Gummies?
Overall, we did enjoy the sleep gummies and would be taking it for the next few weeks. The citrus taste may linger, however it gives a refreshing taste especially on mornings when you feel low in energy. These KOS Sleep gummies are good for that extra punch and wake up call.
