Boosta Manuka Honey Powered Energy

A few months ago I was contacted by Marnix through a friend to see if I was able to help with their online store.

I’m fairly familiar with online marketing type things and have some ideas on how to build a business online so I was more than happy to meet Marnix and see what I could help with.

Boosta was created by Hayden from New Zealand where they make healthy nutritious snack bar for people who are fairly active in their sports.
Marnix told me he used several of these products during his Iron Man competition and that they were some of the best he had ever tasted.

The reason for this is that your body will continue to burn the food and not store it as “fat”. Hence you will have less after a while when eating more spread out. This is one of the very common tricks or easy methods to get started
