Did you know that there are alternatives for extra energy that are healthier and more effective than coffee?
Ellen Kok, our orthomolecular nutritionist, recommends that you start using a natural, long-lasting source of caffeine (such as guarana) combined with natural antioxidants and nutrients to maintain a high energy level the whole day.
The truth is that...
EFSA Journal reported that caffeine has been demonstrated to increase attention, alertness and concentration by blocking neurotransmitter adenosine. 83% of Americans drink coffee to get more energy.
However, coffee drinkers experience the usual coffee crash after sometimes only 1 hour. Coffee causes spikes in adrenaline, glucose and insulin levels, which in-turn create jitteriness, nervousness, and hunger.
The caffeine in guarana works in a synergistic manner with phytonutrients, antioxidants, and amino acids to stimulate energy and additionally enhances all cognitive functions. (NatMed-Research at Southern Cross University).
An Elsevier study showed that 800mg of guarana can give you energy for an extended period up to 8-10 hours (without the jittery feeling).
According to various studies, nutrients to maintain optimal energy levels include zinc, magnesium and vitamins A, B, C, E and K.
