Sea sick? Morning sick? Meds sick? Eight Rum & Cokes and maybe a shot of whiskey sick? Anchor yourself.
Anchor bars look like your standard energy bar, packed with 20 grams of protein and other gym rat ingredients like almond butter and fiber syrup, but the real-food-only Anchors also contain what they claim to be a perfect, Harvard MD-formulated blend of vitamins and nutrients that fend off and fight back the undulating squalls of nausea. Ugh. We've all been there for one reason or another, and whether the culprit is the ocean or a bad decision at the tiki bar, its effects are downright miserable. Anchor prides itself on eliminating drugs and side effects from its bars' healing abilities, and using only natural foods their research has shown to assuage queasiness. The bars are safe for everyone, pregnant women and children included.
Primary active ingredients are protein, ginger, Vitamin C, and and a host of B-vitamins. Anchor says their bars consistently receive high marks for effectiveness from 70% of customers surveyed. 90% report they also taste pretty good. To which I say, they better. Even though I'd relish the irony of my friend Cornelius eating an anti-nausea bar that tastes so bad it makes him vomit, flavor is pretty key to Anchor's success.
For those with cast iron stomachs that never sway or falter, ye too can enjoy your Anchor anti-nausea snack as a plain old nutrition bar. It has 190 calories, 3 grams of fat, 7 grams of fiber, 11 grams of sugar, and the aforementioned 20 grams of protein.
