Are Energy Drinks Killing Your Gut?
It’s addictive. It’s psychoactive. It’s essentially a drug. And it’s completely legal — yes, we’re talking about caffeine.
Caffeine is the world's most widely consumed psychoactive substance. It’s found naturally in coffee and tea, or it can be added as a standalone ingredient to create energy drinks. Energy drink sales are on a dramatic rise, having become a daily ritual for many people. But “common” doesn’t mean “safe,” especially when you consider caffeine’s detrimental effects on gut health.
If you loathe the idea of not getting your daily dose of pep, we get it. Our new Energy Gummy contains no added caffeine, giving you a more gentle effect on your gut microbiome than coffee or energy drinks. Here’s why you should consider making the switch:
How Caffeine Affects Gut Health
The gut microbiome is a complex ecosystem of bacteria and other microorganisms in the digestive tract. It plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health by aiding digestion, regulating metabolism, and supporting our immune system. Caffeine can disrupt the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut, which could make us more susceptible to diseases, illnesses, digestive disorders, and even conditions like anxiety and depression.
Caffeine’s effects don’t stop at gut health, either. It can also cause:
- The “shakes”
While caffeine might help us wake up in the morning, its negative effects can create unintended consequences that shouldn’t be ignored.
Can an Energy Gummy Replace Energy Drinks?
Energy drinks are one of the easiest ways to add some pep to your step. They’re chock full of caffeine, plus they’re tasty. But getting an energy boost doesn’t mean having to rely on caffeine-rich energy drinks.
Instead, consider the benefits of nutrients that naturally boost your energy levels. They’re tasty, easy to eat on the go, and significantly cheaper than a Red Bull habit.
What’s In Nutracelle’s Energy Boost Gummy
Nutracelle created its Energy Gummy using science-backed ingredients that fuel your body without the side effects. Specifically, we’re talking about:
- Niacin: Niacin helps convert carbohydrates into usable energy, allowing you to use nutrients to fuel your daily activities.
- Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 metabolizes carbohydrates and proteins, helping to produce fuel for the body’s functions. It also regulates mood and emotions to improve mental well-being and cognition.
- Folate: Folate produces and maintains red blood cells, which are responsible for carrying oxygen throughout our body. Increased oxygenation improves energy levels, making us feel more alert and focused throughout the day.
- Vitamin B12: This vitamin converts carbs into glucose, the fuel our cells need to function.
- Green Tea Leaf Extract: Green tea leaf extract’s high levels of catechins improve blood flow and oxygen delivery, providing sustained energy throughout the day. It boosts stamina and reduces fatigue, helping you feel alert for longer.
- Garcinia Cambogia Extract: Garcinia Cambogia Extract contains hydroxy citric acid (HCA), which optimizes metabolism by converting carbs into energy instead of storing it as fat.
- Ashwagandha Extract: Ashwagandha Extract reduces stress and improves physical and mental performance, helping you feel more energized.
- Raspberry Extract: Rich in antioxidants, raspberry extract helps your body convert food into energy more efficiently. It also contains natural caffeine, helping you improve focus and concentration.
