First Aid Shot Therapy Review
I get frequent requests to review and/or giveaway energy shots. I've avoided them all. It just isn't something I try / use. With that said, I was recently offered the chance to review First Aid Shot Therapy, or F.A.S.T, and it interested me enough to try. These are not energy shots, but instead offer solutions for real medical needs. There are two options, one for pain relief and another for upset stomach relief.

Why did I try these? Not everyone likes or can swallow pills. Also, I like the travel / on-the-go aspect of the products. These are single dose shots. Size-wise these are 1.35 fl oz or 40 ml. If you feel the need for some pain relief, just pop open the shot and swallow. The meds absorb faster in liquid form than in pill form. And, they kinda taste a little better, too.

The Pain Relief shot combines Choline Salicylate and Caffeine. Caffeine is practically a given with these shots, though isn't in the upset stomach version. The Choline Salicylate is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), with the caffeine being a pain relief aid. In the states, choline salicylate is found in Tricosal and Trilisate. Around the globe, it is found in many other products. It just isn't as common as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. The shot is berry flavored, not quite as much of a medicine taste.

The Upset Stomach Relief combines Calcium Carbonate with some flavorings, specifically peppermint, ginger, and a hint of chocolate. My favorite part of this one is no more chalky tablets. Calcium Carbonate is what you find in Tums, Rolaids, Maalox, and many other products, so its effectiveness is comparable, but it is in a liquid form, so again offers quicker relief.

Overall, I like the concept of the products. It is a question of cost on whether one wants to use them or not. At $30 for a dozen bottles, it far exceeds what the pills cost, if you can take them. I can see keeping them around for those times where pills are impractical with the pain relief. With the upset stomach relief, same cost, but I just don't see the need. Tablets are portable already, and don't require water to take.
