If you’ve ever wished for more energy to get through a day, you’re not alone. Many people feel the need for more energy when it comes to their daily schedule. The recent Shaklee U.S. Health and Wellness Study reveals that stress, lack of sleep, and low energy are taking their toll on the health and wellness of the millennial generation, the largest adult population segment in the U.S. According to the study, nearly two-thirds (60%) of millennials are “more stressed out than ever before” and (58%) are concerned that they may now have “permanently low energy levels.” When asked about energy levels, the most common needs for an energy boost are “to get through the workday” (49%), “to get through a workout” (41%), and “to kickstart my morning” (40%).
While the need for energy is a common one, sometimes we look for energy in the wrong places. In the same study, 9 of 10 (89%) reported the need to boost their energy during the day, most often with coffee, tea, or energy drinks. But these options are usually loaded with sugar or artificial flavors, and 71% are concerned that these energy-boost strategies “come with a health trade-off.” We believe you shouldn’t have to compromise your health to get an energy boost, so we rounded up four of our favorite energy solutions to get you through your day.
Sustained Energy Boost*
If you need a boost in energy that lasts, this is the drink mix for you. Sustained Energy Boost* delivers a boost of energy powered by caffeine from green coffee bean extract and green tea extract. And this is paired perfectly with chardonnay grape seed extract to support healthy circulation. Why is this a big deal? Healthy circulation is critical for the distribution of nutrients and caffeine throughout the body and brain, which means you get what you need to keep you going. Best of all, Sustained Energy Boost* beats out the competition with only 10 calories and 2 g sugar per serving, with no artificial flavors or preservatives.
