Plant Energy is here, it’s healthy and it works! When someone eats a whole leaf versus extracting ingredients from it you get all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that the herb contains. This is what makes plant energy so effective and also why jitters and crashes are ideas of the past. Plus, we added mushrooms and even more adaptogens to increase nerve function, help with weight loss and vitality, aid brain function, decrease stress, and boost the immune system.
What does it mean to have sustainable energy? It means energy all day with the ability to rest when it’s time to rest as well! After so many years of drinking coffee and tea, people assume that jitters and crashing is part and parcel of the ride. But what if it didn’t have to be?
With Woke Up! jitters and crashing don’t have to be!
Our proprietary formula doesn’t have the same negative effects as traditional sources of caffeine.
Green Tea & Coffee negatively affect your blood pH and blood sugar levels and cause adrenal fatigue, which age you and cause a cascade of other issues in the body.
Yerba Mate is a highly sought after botanical offering 24 vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. This nourishing plant provides the alertness of coffee and the euphoria of chocolate without the jitters or tingling sensations. And with the addition of just the right amounts of Lions Mane, Cordyceps, Ashwagandha and Rhodiola, your energy is going to last for a long time!
Many celebrities and heads of state from Lionel Messi, Pope Francis, Barack Obama, Madonna, Tim Ferris and more are advocates of Yerba Mate.
Most energy drinks purport being “healthy” by adding B and C Vitamins as their “healthy” ingredients; however the rest of the drink is filled with synthetic caffeine and fillers. A drink isn’t healthy based on 1 or 2 ingredients.
With Woke Up! our proprietary blend is packed with healthy ingredients — all of them incredibly helpful for your body. The formula starts with the almighty Yerba Mate herb, assisted by Guarana Seed, for the highest quality caffeine. But we didn’t stop there — we added Organic Lion’s Mane Mushroom, Organic Cordyceps Mushroom, Organic Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, L-Theanine, and oh yeah, we dropped in the most bio-available versions of all the Vitamin-B’s you need for immune support.
How does Lion's Mane help my body?
Lion’s Mane is clinically used to aid in increasing nerve growth factor. This helps to stimulate nerve growth and connectivity, and therefore concentration.
What is Cordyceps good for?
Several studies have found that Cordyceps increase antioxidants, helping improve memory and stamina for men and women. Additionally, Cordyceps are now used mostly by athletes of all disciplines for its effects on helping to increase your VO2 max.
What does Rhodiola have to do with lessening stress?
Rhodiola is a powerful herb known for its botanical antidepressant-like qualities used for stress and cortisol management. Stress is defined as the physiological reaction to threat or pressure, which manifests as physical symptoms of exhaustion or energy loss and psychological symptoms, including irritability or tension. If untreated, chronic stress or burnout may develop, both are areas of unmet clinical need. Rhodiola — most commonly known as golden root — helps to balance your levels so that you’re not anxious by the energy boost or develop adrenal fatigue.
Tell me about this Indian ginseng called Ashwagandha?
Ashwagandha is an ancient medicinal herb, that has been used for over 3000 years with multiple health benefits. It can reduce anxiety and stress, help fight depression, boost fertility and testosterone in men, and even boost brain function. Ashwagandha is also very well known for being a blood sugar balancer. One test tube study found that it increased insulin secretion and improved insulin sensitivity in muscle cells (2Trusted Source). Supplementing with ashwagandha may be an easy and effective way to improve your health and quality of life.
What is focus? And how do you stay in that “limitless” zone?
When referring to the mind’s ability to focus, we have to reference the body and its chemical reactions as these two organs work hand in hand. The most basic way to get long sustained focus is to have the body be in perfect balance for long periods of time. This means not getting hungry in 2 hours, needing a sweet when your blood sugar drops or getting tired because your body has expended all its energy. Most of the bodies day is spent balancing its blood sugar. The body primarily uses food and hormones to keep this blood sugar balanced.
Over the years, we have destroyed the body’s natural ways to balance blood sugar by exhausting organs like the adrenals, the pancreas, the kidneys, and the liver by overstimulating the body using coffee, teas, sweets, and chocolate. This overindulgence has weakened our system leading to short amounts of really great focus in the day. So how do we handle this? We strengthen the organs. We used food (herbs) to support the exhausted organs.
This is what Woke Up! does with Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps, Ashwagandha and Rhodiola. These herbs help to keep your blood sugar balanced and with balanced blood sugar you are going to be “in the zone” for a longer period of time. This is how it works and it works!
Stress is your body's reaction to a challenge or demand. When you encounter a perceived threat, your hypothalamus (a tiny region at your brain's base) sets off an alarm system in your body. This system prompts your adrenal glands to release a surge of hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol.
Cortisol, the primary stress hormone, increases sugars (glucose) in the bloodstream, enhances your brain's use of glucose, and increases the availability of substances that repair tissues.
Cortisol also curbs functions that would be nonessential or detrimental in a fight-or-flight situation. It alters immune system responses and suppresses the digestive system, the reproductive system and growth processes. This complex natural alarm system also communicates with the brain regions that control mood, motivation and fear.
In our proprietary blend we use Rhodiola to fight off stress. Rhodiola has long been known as an adaptogen, a natural substance that increases your body’s resistance to stress in non-specific ways. One study investigated the effects of Rhodiola extract in 101 people with life- and work-related stress. Participants were given 400 mg per day for four weeks (3Trusted Source).
It found significant improvements in symptoms of stress, such as fatigue, exhaustion, and anxiety after just three days. These improvements continued throughout the study.
Rhodiola has also been shown to improve symptoms of burnout, which can occur with chronic stress. Rhodiola is your “anti-stress” herb and this is why it is in Woke Up! Energy shot!
