Whether running out the door or running a half marathon, we live a pretty Seize-The-Day kind of lifestyle. And while we always aim to hit the ground running, sometimes we’re just not feeling the Carpe in our Diem. Our culture is all about fast pace and instant gratification – is it any surprise the “Energy Drink” business has seen such a boom?

From Red Bull to Redline, most energy drinks on the market contain a slew of unpronounceable ingredients. The GMOs and gibberish labels are enough to make our heads spin, but what concerns us most of all is the insanely large dosage of both Caffeine and Taurine.  Natural Taurine, like the kind found in seaweed, is actually beneficial for the body – an amino acid that acts as a neurotransmitter, allowing cell communication. However (and this is a big “however”), the daily dose of Taurine is less 500mg – way lower than most energy drinks on the market. Combined, an overload of Taurine and Caffeine can cause irregular heart rhythm and even seizures. Definitely not worth the extra pep in your step.

Whatever you drink to beat a slump in the day should be high-energy yet hazard-free.  Here are our seven favorites when it comes to perking up.

  1. Another great all natural product that should be on this list is Solixir! Solixir’s “Awaken” is an all natural, no sugar added functional drink that is aimed for gentle energy. Awaken doesn’t rely solely on caffeine for stimulation but contains all natural botanicals that build on the other systems in the body and support a natural sense of energy. These botanicals like Yerba Maté, Gingseng, and Angelica Root also target brain stimulation and better blood flow for a gentle and healthy lift.

  2. I am truly grateful to the holder of this web site who has
