Sensa Quench Reviews
We all know losing weight isn’t exactly easy. There are unlimited places to start the weight loss quest. But, when the gym and calorie counting stop working, or simply work too slowly, you might turn to the new Sensa Quench vitamin drink.
Sensa Quench is a high vitamin energy drink that supposedly boosts metabolism, increases energy, and improves weight loss.
Can a drink really do all that? Let’s do some research and see what it’s capable of.
What’s In It?
Here are a few key ingredients that give Sensa Quench its power:
Vitamins A, C, and D. Vitamin A promotes healthy eyes, bones, teeth and skin. Many women also use vitamin A to treat PMS and yeast infections. WebMD refers to vitamin C as one of the most effective and safest nutrients. Vitamin C boosts the immune system and provides antioxidants and is often used to prevent or treat the common cold. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium. Supplemental vitamin D is especially important during the winter when most people receive less sunlight.
Vitamins B6 and B12. B vitamins are a main ingredient in most weight loss supplements. Vitamin B6 synthesizes fats and boosts metabolism. Vitamin B12 boosts energy and increases metabolic rate. Vitamins B6 and B12 are often combined like they are in Sensa Quench.
Green tea . Green tea contains caffeine which boosts energy. Green tea also provides antioxidants and ignites metabolism. A 2002 study in Carros, France tested the effect of green tea on weight loss in moderately obese people. The participants were divided into 2 groups: one group was given green tea extract and another group a placebo.
The green tea extract given contained 25% catechins, which is the antioxidant famous in tea leaves. This is the ingredient that boosts thermogenesis. After 3 months, the green tea group showed a 4.6% decrease in body weight. 
Guarana . This herbal extract enhances metabolism by increasing calories burned. Guarana contains high levels of caffeine, which increases thermogenesis and metabolic rate. When thermogenesis is boosted, the body can burn more calories.
In 2001, the Obesity Research Center, St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, and Columbia University’s Department of Medicine conducted a study testing the effectiveness of guarana supplements in weight loss. 67 participants were either given a guarana supplement or a placebo. After 8 weeks, the guarana group had significantly more weight and fat loss.
In week 8, heart rates were tested. The group on the active guarana averaged heartbeats of 6.9 beats per minute, whereas the placebo group averaged 6.3 beats per minute. Higher heart rate means more calories burned, so the guarana group burned more calories. 
What’s the Story Behind Sensa?
Dr. Alan Hirsch, a renowned neurologist (according to the Sensa website), has studied smell and taste for over two decades. Over the course of his career, he found when people lose their sense of smell, they tend to gain weight. –So he tested to see if stronger smelling foods prompt weight loss and found they do.
The science behind Sensa Quench is based on this concept. Strong citrus and other fruit flavors trigger the sense of smell, which ultimately leads to weight loss.
But it isn’t just the strong scent of the drink that leads to weight loss. Sensa Quench is also full of fat-burning ingredients.
What Customers Think
Sense Quench has a 4.3 out of 5 star rating on Amazon.com.
The packets are easy to take and mix on the go. Sensa Quench is sugar free, unlike most energy drinks out there. This means no afternoon sugar crash. Amazon user D. Meeks says Sensa Quench is “a great way to get a pick me up in the afternoon.”
Sensa Quench helps you drink more water. Choosing a Sensa Quench packet mixed into a water bottle over morning coffee or a soda with lunch helps cut extra calories. Amazon user H. Dunn says, “I don’t like drinking plain water so the Sensa Quench has been a great find.”
Some people find that it helps curb appetites, which facilitates weight loss. Amazon user J. Rasmussen says, “It really helps to curb my appetite and I do less snacking between meals.”
Not all users love Sensa Quench. Some complain about the taste. Others say it is ineffective for weight loss. Some complain of side effects like stomach cramps. Amazon user Erin Zimmerman says, “These work great but taste awful!”
A number of customers have issues with Sensa’s AutoShip Delivery Service. What does this mean? Each customer that orders Sensa or signs up for the free trial, is automatically enrolled in an auto ship/payment plan. The customer will be billed $89.95 every 60 days without doing anything. Many customers complain of either having trouble cancelling the AutoShip Delivery Service, or forgetting to cancel until additional $89.95 charges show up on their credit cards.
Customers have also expressed disappointment with Sensa’s return policy. Pboman writes in his Amazon review, “They didn’t honor the [promised] money back guarantee.”
Sensa Quench comes in a variety of flavors:
• Tropical Breeze
• Berry Splash
• Luscious Lemonade
• Pink Grapefruit
• Strawberry Rush
• Orange Crush
These flavors are a good alternative to typical energy drinks, which can taste the same.
What’s Pricing Like?
There are 30 Sensa Quench drink packets in each box, and each box costs around $30. That’s $1 a drink, which is much less than you’d pay for canned energy drinks or your morning coffee.
Sensa.com: $27.96 – $39.95
The Sensa Quench drink packets are fairly affordable. But with an auto-ship and auto-pay program, you could end up paying for more Sensa Quench than you would like. If you’ve tried everything you can to lose weight and it just isn’t happening, trading your daily soda or morning latte for Sensa Quench could be a good idea. However, your money might be better invested in a more powerful weight loss aid.
