OKTANE ENERGY

Oktane Energy was founded by Toni Covington (former bodybuilder) and ISupreme Watkins (Marine Corps Veteran). They are black-owned, and family operated business based in MD.​​​​​​​​ We came up with the idea to produce an energy drink that is not only great for the everyday on-the go athlete, but the everyday working person as well. We wanted to develop a drink that is 0 calories, 0 sugars, and fuel efficient without the jitters or fillers.

We believe in quality, authenticity, and transparency. With our customers at our core, we stand by each formula. We are committed to sourcing the purest ingredients and developing brands that are successful in the market. They also encourage the health and wellness of consumers that they reach.

Apparently, yes.

This is Oktane’s big selling point, that their proprietary blend is so potent and 

Here’s a short summary:

  1. Metabolic response: a single serving of Oktane was found to have more thermogenic properties than a single serving of diet sodaA 12% increase in metabolic response was found over a three-hour period.
  2. Acute effects on changes in energy expenditure and markers of lipolysis: participants who took one serving of Oktane burned 100 more calories over three hours than those who took placebos.
  3. Efficacy and safety over 28 days: over a four-week testing period, participants continued to burn an average of 100 more calories a serving without any adverse side effects.

OKTANE DRINK TASTE

Oktane tastes pretty awesome, actually.

This is where Oktane Energy Drink earns my money. I tried their flagship flavor Watermelon-Kiwi and was a huge fan. Crisp, refreshing, light, without any sickly or cloying flavor that you find in a lot of energy drinks. Sparkling Watermelon tastes like a classy crisp soda.

The comparison – 100mg of caffeine in a single serving is great. It’s less than Monster (160mg) and 3D (200mg).

It’s no surprise that Oktane will be a big hit in the market, especially with the hype that it’s gaining already. Establishing in August of 2021, and ready to launch on the market Late April of 2022. With already having sponsorship with the USPC and gaining a spot with the world’s biggest fitness festival Mr. OLYMPIA. They have gained over 10k on social media apps like Tik-Tok and gaining traction with fitness influencers. 

It’s certainly managed to convince the market that they mean business and the marketing team is a well-oiled machine. Overall Oktane Energy is a brand to be on the look out for. It’s fresh, innovative, sleek, and brings a refreshing visual to the Energy Drink Industry.
