Plant Energy is here, it’s healthy and it works!
When someone eats a whole leaf instead of extracting ingredients or synthetically creating it, you get all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that the plant contains. This is what makes plant energy so effective.
Plus, we added mushrooms and 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. After so many years of drinking coffee and tea, people assume that jitters and crashing is part of the ride. But what if it didn’t have to be?
Tea & coffee negatively affect your blood pH and blood sugar levels and can cause adrenal fatigue, which in turn age you and cause a cascade of other issues in the body.
So, what do we use?
We use yerba mate, which is a highly sought after plant offering 24 vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It also provides the alertness of coffee and without the jitters or tingling sensations.
Our proprietary formula doesn’t have the same negative effects as traditional sources of caffeine.
And with the addition of just the right amounts of Lions Mane, Cordyceps, Ashwagandha and Rhodiola, your energy is going to last for hours!
Most energy drinks state being “healthy”, is that true?
Some other energy drinks state that they are healthy by adding B and C Vitamins as their “healthy” ingredients; however the rest of their drink is filled with synthetic caffeine, fillers and sugars. However, as we all know a drink isn’t healthy based on 1 or 2 ingredients.
What about Woke Up!?
With Woke Up! our proprietary blend doesn't just have 1 or 2 healthy ingredients - its packed with them. The formula starts with the mighty Yerba Mate, assisted by Guarana Seed for the highest quality caffeine. But we didn’t stop there — we added Lion’s Mane Mushroom, Cordyceps Mushroom, Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, L-Theanine, and oh yeah, we dropped in the most soluble 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 are Cordyceps good for?
Several studies have found that Cordyceps increase antioxidants, and help 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 (the maximum amount of oxygen your body can utilize during exercise).
What does Rhodiola have to do with lessening stress?
Rhodiola is a powerful herb known for its herbal 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, This also includes irritability or tension. If untreated, chronic stress (also called burnout) may develop. Rhodiola helps to balance your levels so that you’re not anxious by the energy boost or develop adrenal fatigue.
Tell me about Ashwagandha (also called Indian ginseng)?
Ashwagandha is an ancient medicinal herb, that has been used for over 3,000 years with multiple health benefits.
It can reduce stress and anxiety, 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 study even found that it increased insulin secretion and improved insulin sensitivity in muscle cells (2Trusted Source).
What happens in the long run to our Focus?
When referring to the mind’s ability to focus, we have to reference first the human body and its chemical reactions as these two components work hand in hand.
The most basic way to get long sustained focus is to have your body be in perfect balance for long periods of time. The body primarily uses food and hormones to keep this blood sugar balanced. So most of the body's day is spent balancing its blood sugar.
As we get older and through overstimulating the body using coffee, teas, sweets, and chocolate we slowly destroy the body’s natural ways to balance blood sugar by exhausting organs like the adrenals, the pancreas, the kidneys, and the liver. Overindulgence can weakened our system leading to short amounts of really great focus in the day and the rest spent in a sort of fog. So now that we know the problem, how do we handle it? We strengthen the organs. We use food and herbs to support the exhausted organs towards normal operation.
Why do we Stress out?
Stress is your body's reaction to a momentary challenge or demand. When you encounter a perceived threat, a tiny part of your brain (the hypothalamus)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 is the primary stress hormone. It increases sugars (glucose) in the bloodstream and enhances your brain's use of glucose, and increases the availability of substances that repair tissues. It also curbs functions that would be considered nonessential or detrimental in a fight-or-flight situation (such as altering the immune response system, suppressing the digestive system, reproductive system and growth processes).
In short, Cortisol activates a complex natural alarm system that communicates with the brain regions that control mood, motivation and fear.
Great, now how do I reduce stress?
In our proprietary blend, we use Rhodiola. It has long been known as an adaptogen (a natural substance that increases your body’s resistance to stress).
One study was conducted on the effects of Rhodiola extract in over a hundred people with day to day, life- and work-related stress. Participants were given 400 mg per day for four weeks. (3Trusted Source).
In those weeks there were significant improvements found in the reduction of the symptoms of stress, such as fatigue, exhaustion, and anxiety after just three days. There were improvements observed throughout the rest of the study.
