Morning energy: An alternative to coffee
Erin Stokes, Naturopathic Doctor, MegaFood Medical Director | June 2019
Looking for an alternative to coffee? For many people, one of the first things they seek out after getting up is energy. Yes, energy, that elusive element that seems to naturally emanate from kids from the moment they wake up, 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.
Consider introducing a new habit that will promote sustained energy throughout the day- try our Daily Energy Nutrient Booster Powder in water or a delicious smoothie!* (Extra bonus if you’re already a regular smoothie drinker! Just scoop, stir and sip!)
Daily Energy features three key plants to fuel physical activity, mental clarity and focus, without any stimulants.* This booster blend combines B12, essential for healthy red blood cell formation, with chromium, which supports a healthy metabolism*, along with a powerful blend of herbs and roots—ashwagandha, eleuthero, beet root, and green tea leaf extract—for added phytochemicals and support during times of stress.* I like to think of these botanicals as providing “energy from the ground up”, which is very different from the charge that comes from a cup of coffee.*
Like many of our farm-fresh products, this booster powder is made with real food from trusted farm partners, wholesome nutritional yeast, added nutrients and carefully selected herbs. Each vitamin or mineral is paired with an ideal whole food using our unique process to deliver guaranteed potency and the benefit of health-promoting compounds present in the whole food itself.*
And there’s more good news! This booster powder is Non-GMO Project Verified, certified glyphosate residue free, plus vegetarian, gluten-, dairy-, and soy-free.
