Natural Energy Boost


There’s a fine line between being a complete energy junky and having a healthy (non-habit forming) relationship with caffeine.

Although there are days where #allIwantisaStarbucks, I’d like to think that I fall into the latter category.

I am all for natural forms of energy:: a good nights sleep, copious amounts of water, a bunch of healthy fats throughout the day, green juices, balanced meals, etc. But sometimes, I just need a boost.

This week — I’ve been finalizing my new cookbook (!!), writing posts for the blog, preparing for our wedding, studying Course in Miracles, prepping for yoga teacher training, volunteering and also… living. Whole foods help me maintain energy throughout the day, but there’s nothing quite like the natural energy boost and clarity that a batch of homemade iced black tea gives me.

At least that’s what I thought until I was introduced to NERGIA. This stuff takes my black tea sippin’ days to a whole new level.

NERGIA is an all-natural, non-GMO energy shot that’s free of all the crap other energy drinks have, like:: taurine, gluten, artificial ingredients or bogus preservatives.

What I like about them is that they support local farmers in Brazil (where many of the ingredients are sourced) by helping them maintain their native culture and improve their quality of life without affecting the delicate balance of the rainforest region.

NERGIA is comprised of guarana, acai berry, catauaba, water, natural flavor, stevia extract, malic acid (natural flavor enhancer), erythritol (sugar alcohol), citrus extract and talin. Each bottle contains about 180mg of caffeine – the same as about 2 cups of coffee.

To give you an idea, other energy shots contain ingredients like taurine, glucuronic acid, malic acid, N-acetyl L-Tyrosine, L-Phenylalanine, caffeine, citicoline, natural and artificial flavours, sucralose, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate and EDTA.

Instead of drinking it straight-up, I have been adding it to my iced black teas, smoothies and green juices.

Because taurine and high fructose corn syrup haven’t been used, and the source of caffeine in these shots is natural, I haven’t been getting those crazy energy crashes (that I’ve experienced with other energy shots in the past)

I definitely wouldn’t recommend going all crazy and drinking these daily, but when you need a clean, natural boost of energy, NERGIA has my vote.

NERGIA is currently available on GNC’s online store HERE, if you’re interested.

What forms of caffeine are your favorite?

  1. I’m just particularly inspired together with your crafting skills as perfectly like the dwelling for your weblog. Is this fact any paid for theme or maybe can you transform them by yourself? No matter what remain within the excellent quality writing, it truly is rare to check a great blog site exactly like it today.

  2. The first time I tried Nergia I was giving a presentation at work in the afternoon. I wanted to be alert and focused and my colleague had some. I tried it and it worked fantastic. I just felt really good and alert, not jittery or anything.

    I also like it when I have to drive long distances. It immediately gets rid of the groggy feeling you get after hours behind the wheel. I don’t use it every day, but when I need it, I don’t feel guilty because I know it is better than using the others that are filled with synthetic stuff.

  3. I tried NERGIA and I have to say that I only took it when I was super tired (after lunch and in the morning) and I felt the effects immediately. I think because it has the acai and natural caffein from guarana, it made me feel better – as if I had a vitamin. My mind also felt clearer. I love to juice with the nutrabullet and have used it with my blends in the morning to sustain me at the gym. This stuff is great!

  4. I do not drink tea or anything with caffeine, no alcohol or any immediate stimulant except natural foods because in the long run I know it is harmful.
    In addition, I live what we Mormons call the word of wisdom. (See for details.


  5. Yoga teacher training?! That’s exciting, I became an instructor of my favourite fitness class and since teaching it have loved every second of getting to inspire my students! It is fantastic, good luck!

    I usually go for fruit to boost my energy, but I love coffee! I now stick to 1/2 a cup of coffee with almond/coconut milk in the mornings, I had to go without for a while to develop a healthy relationship with it!
