Lately I've become obsessed with adding in herbs to optimize my health, and Focused Energy Boost has become a daily must-have for me. It contains a blend of herbal ingredients that promote energy and focus and boost mood and memory... which is essential when I live in a place with long, brutal winters and never get quite enough sleep. This is my secret weapon!
It has a flowery flavor (similar to bee pollen if you've ever tried that in a smoothie or salad) and blends nicely into my morning smoothie without being overwhelming.

GUARANA is a shrub native to Brazil whose seeds contain caffeine and confer similar health benefits to coffee, with a slower release to avoid the jitters followed by a crash. Guarana has antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects. Its caffeine improves mental focus and boosts metabolism to help the body metabolize stored fat. It also helps sore muscles recover faster!
MATCHA is a type of green tea with potent health benefits. It grows in the shade and is thus richer in chlorophyll than other types of green tea. It contains antioxidants called catechins, which scavenge for dangerous free radicals in the body. It has anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging properties. It promotes fat oxidation, and in particular can increase the amount of fat burned during exercise. It has detoxifying and cholesterol reducing properties, and promotes calm energy, mental clarity, and concentration.
RHODIOLA is believed to improve energy, physical performance, and memory.
AMERICAN GINSENG has energy and memory benefits, as well as regulating blood sugar and boosting immune function.
PANAX GINSENG supports physical endurance and mental clarity. It also has antioxidant properties that support heart health and immune function.
LUO HAN GUO, also called monkfruit, is a fruit native to southern China and northern Thailand. In Chinese traditional medicine, it is used as a longevity aid and reducer of inflammation. It prevents cholesterol from oxidizing and building up into plaque within blood vessels. In addition, it is nearly 300 times sweeter than sugar, and is used as a low-calorie, low-glycemic-index sweetener, since it does not cause the same fluctuations in blood sugar that glucose does.
The MEDICINAL MUSHROOM BLEND present in Focused Energy Boost confers multiple benefits, including anti-aging, disease-fighting, and improving athletic performance. They have been shown to positively affect the immune system, fighting oxidative damage and stimulating protective cells that keep the body free from mutations (such as cancerous cells) and infections. They have also been shown to improve the body's ability to regulate blood sugar, thereby increasing insulin sensitivity and decreasing insulin resistance. Some of these mushrooms have been shown to increase satiety, making people feel fuller from eating the same amount of food, and thus can contribute to weight loss and weight control. They also help to decrease blood pressure levels and cholesterol levels.
