Do you have caffeine alternatives but want need energy fast? Here is a list of vitamins, minerals, and herbs that can help you get through your day.
Vitamins B-6 and B-12
Vitamins B-6 and B-12 help speed up the transmission of signals to the brain and for those who are deficit, will increase energy. Dairy, poultry, fish, beans, and dark leafy greens provide these B-Vitamins. M-Factor Goddess and Hero from 1st Phorm also provide 2500% daily value of B6 and 833% daily value of B12.
Replace Carb Snacks with Protein
Instead of reaching for your typical carbohydrate snacks, reach for a protein shake! Protein won’t spike blood sugar and make your crash later. Lean protein also helps build lean muscle. Level-1 from 1st Phorm is the perfect low carb, high protein shake!
Chug a Glass of Water
Drinking a glass of water will aid in alertness. Hydration will also help with relieving fatigue. It is important for those who are working out, or trying to lose weight to drink a minimum of 80 ounces per day.
Reach for the Weed Man
Not that kind of weed. Many herbs such as cayenne pepper, ginger root, ginseng, and others aid in metabolism increases and alertness.
My favorite non-caffeine product is yohimbine. The problem with yohimbine is that your body doesn’t need very much of it to feel the effects. For most people, 10mgs is more than enough. If you have blood pressure or heart issues, do not take yohimbine. Yohimbine is also great for men with erectile issues. Yohimbine is also dirt cheap if you buy it in raw forms. Yohimbine also burns fat.
