Today, the stress of daily life has millions of people so tired and worn out that they feel they’re about to collapse. Here are five solutions beyond that typical cup of coffee to help you keep going the whole day through.
5 Ways to Kickstart Your Day
1. Dr. Oz’s Energy Cubes
Dr. Oz’s Energy Cubes are made with two energy boosters: spirulina and lime juice. Combined, they are shown to help boost your mood. Spirulina is an excellent source of protein. This blue-green algae, available in powder and supplement form at health food stores, boosts energy by unlocking sugar from your cells so it does not get stored as fat.
Dr. Oz’s Energy Cubes
1 tsp spirulina powder
12 oz lime juice
Combine ingredients; pour into ice cubes trays and freeze. (The cold from the ice also works to wake you up and help boost metabolic energy.)
Add 2 energy cubes to water, fruit or vegetable juices daily.
2. Energy Blaster: Moringa Oleifera
The leaves of the moringa oleifera tree, native to the Himalayan mountains in northwestern India, are extremely nutrient-dense. They contain 3 times more iron than spinach and are loaded with tons of other vitamins including vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium and potassium, as well as powerful antioxidants. To benefit from this super supplement, take 400mg daily. You can also try moringa oleifera tea, a great alternative to caffeinated beverages. Available at health food stores.
