A Healthy Energy-Boosting Drink To Replace Your Morning Coffee

 

What if we told you there was a healthier alternative to your morning coffee? Something that takes less than five minutes to prepare, that will give you an instant energy boost but also keep you going throughout the day (and keep your hair and skin looking flawless too!).

We’re giving away a 6-month supply of Equi supplements worth £300/$300! All you have to do is sign up with the form at the bottom of this article and comment when done!

We’re talking about a green smoothie with a difference. A shot of Equi London’s supplement powders can easily be mixed into your morning smoothie, or added to a glass of water on your way out the door. I use the Fundamental supplement and have no desire to start my day with a fizzy drink anymore (I know, it was so bad!) thanks to the natural energy boosters, vitamins, and minerals inside. So what’s in these supplements that will actually get you through the day?

1. Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is a small shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers and belongs to the same family as the tomato. It’s been used in ancient Chinese medicine thanks to its numerous health benefits. It contains chemicals that calm the brain, improve mental clarity and calm anxiety so it’s perfect for a busy, stressful day. You’ll find this in the Fundamental supplement.

2. Shiitake Mushrooms

You wouldn’t think that mushrooms can have a benefit to your health, but these mushrooms are rich in some amazing compounds called beta-glucans, which can help to support your immune system. They also contain B vitamins which will help you break through that ‘brain fog’, improve your focus and boost your energy. You need these nutrients to be more positive and productive, as well as cooking with them, you can find them in the Fundamental supplement, too!

3. Iron

It’s estimated that 8 million women in the US have an iron deficiency severe enough to cause anemia. The symptoms are startling (have a craving for ice recently?) but low energy is pretty much the most obvious. Iron in vegetarian food is poorly absorbed into the body, so it’s better to take it in a good quality, gentle supplement form especially if you’re vegetarian or vegan. It’ll boost your energy, reduce tiredness, and give you healthy skin and nails. You can find this in both Fundamental and Beautiful.

4. Schisandra

Another one we’ve been talking about a lot recently, Schisandra is a woody vine native to the forests of Northern China and the Russian Far East. It balances hormones naturally, meaning that you’ll be positive and clear-headed plus able to deal with stress and high-pressure situations. It’s also perfect for that time of the month! Find it in the Beautiful supplement.

5. Cordyceps

You might not have heard of cordyceps, they’re a type of fungus with over 400 species. Similar to a mushroom, cordyceps increase oxygen uptake and increase cellular energy. Which means if you’re the kind of person who needs an instant burst of energy in the morning, this is where you’ll get it. You can find this in the Beautiful supplement.

6. Moringa

Moringa tree leaves are often used in stress supplements, thanks to the iron, magnesium, and calcium they contain, they’ll not only keep you energized and focused but help calm and quiet any side-effects of stress and anxiety. You can get your dose of moringa in both Beautiful and Fundamental!
