If you can’t stand the taste of coffee (we often refer to it as “dirt water”) but need the energy to get through your day, you’ve come to the right place.
We are constantly finding alternative ways to keep our energy levels up without having to step into a cafe.
How to Get Energy If You Don’t Drink Coffee
There are alternatives to drinking a cup of Joe, especially if it’s not your tea. Here are some products we have tried and recommend to help give you energy without having to guzzle down dirt water.
#1 B12 Shots
B12 shots give you a boost of energy that you’ll feel all day long. We typically get our B12 shots once a week with our local MedSpa.
Each injection costs approximately $20 and is worth it if you’re constantly feeling fatigued. It’s a great way to b 12 again!
You can also ingest b12 vitamins orally, but the effects are not the same.
Viter makes breath mints that replace coffee. Choose from a variety of 5 flavors that include chocolate mint, peppermint, wintergreen, cinnamon, and spearmint.
Two (2) mints are equivalent to 1 cup of coffee and they taste amazing!
Aila‘s Matcha Energy super powder blend is made with food & plant-based ingredients to help you energize better. Maximize your workout or your day with a sustained energy and improved mood and focus. No crashing, jitters, or interrupted sleep!
Two grams of matcha contains just as much caffeine as a shot of espresso. Matcha has high levels of amino acids and L-Theanine which gives someone calm alertness, concentration and focus. This tea also has many more benefits that prevent cancer, helps fight against cardiovascular diseases, and detoxifies the body by increasing metabolism.
Zolt is a hemp beverage that provides a wide range of benefits which include energy, relaxation, and balance. Their Rise+ and Rise drink mixes (contains caffeine) offer a boost of energy that you need to take on your day.
Zolt comes in little powder packages that discreetly tuck away into your gym bag or purse. Try out their variety pack to find the perfect blend for you.
