Hello everyone :-)Firstly, I would post the recpie - if I had one! The soap flakes came out of an old kit and I winged it with the wheat germ and oil - sorry. The very rough quantities would have been around 2 tbs sunflower oil & a large handful of wheat germ to maybe 3 cups of *very* fine soap flakes, and say, 1 cup of boiling water mixed in to make a thick 'dough'. Then rolled by hand into balls before it hardened up again. The last ones I did are a bit crumbly so you need to work fast - or add less wheat germ. Maybe Googling might turn up a more specific recpie? Sorry guys.Cheers, Julie
. I withdrew the rveiew, but upon reflection I've regretted my decision to do so. Whether or not the product worked for an individual is necessarily personal and anecdotal, one person's report. It's hardly a matter for disagreement unless the responder is intent upon promoting an agenda. All of the FRS products have ingredients likely to be familiar to users of energy drinks, powders, supplements, and bites: sugar, corn syrup, fructose, caffeine, green tea extract. The drink also offers the MDR for key vitamins along with antioxidant activity from the green tea leaves and, most importantly, quercetin, a bioflavanoid that is used in red wine replacement capsules as a highly potent free radical scavenger. While quercetin is widely recognized as an effective blood toner, conditioner, and bad cholesterol reducer, FRS is prominently promoting it as an energizer, capable of extending the body's natural adrenaline and removing the oxidants that cause fatigue. A controversial statement, backed by little controlled studies, especially if the inference is that quercetin will provide an immediate lift. Of course, FRS points out that it's not simply the individual ingredients that provide increased energy but an optimal, catalytic combination that promotes thermogenesis, increases metabolic rate, and helps the body make efficient use of carbohydrates. So it's possible the product has worked for many (besides Mr. Armstrong). If so, testimonials on its behalf deserve to be taken seriously by any curious, health-minded individuals. The powdered drink mix perhaps makes the most sense to start with, and the chewy bites the least (the sugar in the bites actually had a paradoxical effect, momentarily enervating rather than energizing me). The drink is flavorable enough, with a convincing fresh-fruitish tang, and not overly sweet. But in my case it did not counteract either the late-morning or late-afternoon crashes and obviate the need for that extra expresso or two. If you choose to try the product, be exceptionally careful about the apparently generous internet offer, endorsed by Mr. Armstrong, of a complete sample kit of the products sent free of charge (with the exception of postage and handling costs). The merchandising tactics of FRS are practically antithetical to the full-disclosure, consumer-centric policies of a site like Amazon. (If Bezos offered everyone a free Kindle, saying it's yours to keep if you don't like it, I'd have full confidence in his offer; FRS employs more deceptive, misleading tactics that could result in your admittance to a pricey club before you even realized you were a member.) So put Lance Armstrong and his company (he's part owner) to the test, but order the products through Amazon to avoid unwanted hassle, hustle and hype. If you decide the product is for you, then is the time to inquire into the benefits of being a member of the club.
