Do you drink coffee, tea, soda or “energy drinks”? If yes, then make sure you read today’s important article!
FACT: Did you know that caffeine is the most used, popular and ABUSED DRUG on the planet?8 The interesting thing is that most people don’t even consider caffeine a “drug”.
Most people think that caffeine is “natural”. Yes, it is “naturally occurring” in certain substances, such as coffee or tea.
But by no means is caffeine “natural”, nor is it good for your body.
Health Problems With Caffeine
Caffeine, IF used “as needed” (when you’re very tired) and occasionally (maybe 3x a week), is fine. Maybe one cup of coffee or about 100-150 mgs worth of caffeine. NOT every day, but 3-4x weekly…
However, any more than that and your body starts to deal with the negative effects, such as:
- High blood pressure, increasing the risk of a heart attack or stroke1,2
- Gout and arthritis3
- Breast tissue cysts in women4
- Insomnia and poor sleep5
- High blood sugar and poor carbohydrate metabolism6
- Wrinkles and poor collagen production in your skin7
… and many other problems.
The WORST Problem Of All
However, in my PERSONAL opinion, the WORST problem with caffeine consumption is the negative change in your hormones due to the RISE in your “stress hormone” called, cortisol!
At the end of the day, the elevation in this stress hormone is the cause of many of the above mentioned negative effects.
We already live in stressful times, with lots of responsibilities and many of us aren’t sleeping well.
Caffeine is just making everything else much worse and it’s accelerating the aging process!
Why We Like Caffeine So Much
So, why do you or anyone even take caffeine products?…
You can have “decaf” coffee or tea. It tastes the same. So, it’s not about “taste”.
At the end of the day, it’s simply because you like how it makes you FEEL. We like the extra energy levels — both physical and mental.
Additionally, caffeine increases dopamine levels slightly. Dopamine is known as the “pleasure chemical”. So, another reason caffeine makes us “happy”.
However, after continued use, your adrenal glands become overworked, cortisol levels increase, dopamine receptors become desensitized and caffeine is NO LONGER making your “energized and happy”…
It’s now just keeping you “normal”.
Many times you have mid-day “caffeine crash”, which means MORE caffeine (coffee, energy drinks, etc.). Thus, why it’s addictive.
And when you get off, the opposite happens — you’re super tired and depressed!
So now that you know, let’s talk about better, safer and healthier alternatives…
How To Increase Your Energy Levels & Feel Good,
The good news is that with the correct combination of natural ingredients, you’ll get MANY MORE BENEFITS, without any of the negatives of caffeine.
That means NO withdrawals. NO addiction. NO crashes.
So here’s a list of my favorite ingredients for you to use for increased energy levels, improved cognition and anti-aging purposes:
- Rhodiola Rosea — great for adrenal fatigue and coming off of caffeine. Improves your mood and helps you deal with stress much better.
- Aniracetam — an amazingly safe “nootropic”. Which means improved cognition, memory and brain power.
- DMAE — great for mental clarity and alertness. Also beneficial for skin rejuvenation
- NADH & CoQ10 — increases ATP and mitochondria production, which dramatically increases your energy levels, naturally.
- Acetyl L-Carnitine — improves cognition, energy levels, great for the heart and reduces stress and depressions.
As you can see, lots of benefits. The only “problem” is that you have to take too buy too many products, take too many pills and it can get expensive.
This is a challenge that I personally faced myself.
My Personal Favorite Solution
Imagine getting all the benefits of caffeine and MORE, without the negative side-effects and as an added bonus, you’ll look and feel younger too! …
Plus, all you did was just take ONE pill daily, which combined all these scientifically proven ingredients, along with a few other key vitamins and minerals.
Many years ago I was always tired because of too much work, school, responsibilities, stress, not sleeping enough, etc., etc. Something I’m sure you can relate to.
Then I found a great formula that gave me more natural energy, all day long. And it improved my mental focus as well.
