Caffeine is widely accepted as a way to start your day, but there are plenty of downsides. It may not go well with certain medications, or chronic conditions (like heart disease, certain hormone problems, anxiety, etc.), caffeine can mess up your sleep, is often paired with sugar, and forget about the caffeine withdrawal if you fall out of pattern.
Instead, try a different way to boost your energy.
Everything starts with prevention, and getting a good night’s sleep is, of course, key! If you’re having trouble, try some troubleshooting:
-Limit caffeine to after lunch
-Exercise earlier in the day (earlier helps wake you up and keeps you from being too hyped at bedtime).
-Make sure your bedroom is easy on all senses at night
-Choose healthy foods. If you’re still having trouble with digestion, check out our tips on improving digestion.
If you think you’re sleeping well but are still tired, ask your doctor about a sleep study for sleep apnea. Undiagnosed sleep apnea can impact your mood, your energy, your alertness/focus, and, if left untreated, lead to an early death.
Still need a boost? Try these healthier options:
-Try our CoEnzyme B Complex for a more bioavailable boost. The nutrients are more easily absorbed and used by your body, making it a more effective B vitamin choice!
-Or try our colloidal gold to help with energy, mood, focus, creativity, hand-eye coordination, and more.
Caffeine is an energy cheat. You can crash, get withdrawal headaches/slumps, and experience other side effects. Start choosing a healthier energy boost that benefits your overall health, too, like CoEnzyme B Complex or colloidal gold.
