Morning Energy: An Alternative to Coffee

Morning Energy: An Alternative to Coffee

Looking for an alternative to coffee?

For many people, one of the the first hunts of the early morning hours is not for a missing pair of socks, but for energy. Yes, energy, that elusive element that seems to naturally emanate from kids from the moment they arise, yet simultaneously has a tendency to fade in adults as life’s demands stack up.

The truth is that most people are always searching for more energy. Often when I ask the illuminating question:

“What is the first thing you do upon waking in the morning?”

The answer often revolves around the ritual of making coffee.

As we embark on a new year, consider introducing a new habit to promoting sustained energy throughout the day, Daily Energy Nutrient Booster Powder.* Extra bonus if you’re already a regular smoothie drinker... for it’s as easy as adding a scoop of powder to your already healthy morning habit.

Daily-Energy_w_Bacopa_BoosterBottleDaily Energy features three key plants to fuel physical activity, mental clarity and focus, without any stimulants.*  I like to think of these botanicals as providing “rooted energy”, which is very different from the charge that comes from a cup of coffee.* This Body Strengthening Blend includes organic Eleuthero root, organic Ashwagandha root, and organic Bacopa. Eleuthero and Ashwagandha are well known adaptogens, meaning they help our bodies adapt to stress.* Bacopa has recently replaced American Ginseng in the blend, for its premier role in supporting optimal mental function.*

The farm fresh food in Daily Energy is Beet Root, that comes directly to MegaFood from Stahlbush® Island Farms in Oregon. Beet root has received a lot of attention lately. It was the subject of a recent scientific study in the Journal of Applied Physiology, where it was found to improve exercise performance.* The reason appears to be the naturally occurring nitrates in the root that help promote optimal oxygen uptake.* In lieu of being able to juice beet root every single day, taking it in a powdered form that is fresh from farm to tablet, is an excellent and convenient option.

Rounding out the formula are FoodState Vitamin B12 and FoodState GTF Chromium, to support energy metabolism and healthy blood sugar levels.* If you’re looking to promote your resilience to stress, while naturally fueling up your body, Daily Energy just might be the right choice for you!
