If you are looking for a healthy alternative to typical energy drinks, keep reading!
Like a lot of parents to teens, I was not loving the number of energy drink cans I was seeing in our recycle bin. I had seen the articles about how harmful these drinks can be with all of their chemicals and other additives, especially on teen bodies that are still developing.
I suggested that my teen just “get more sleep” rather than depend on energy from a beverage. After he finished laughing, he pointed out that I am kind of known for being unapproachable until I’ve had my first cup of coffee which is also an energy-providing beverage. (I have to admit that his debate skills are on-point.)
After I regrouped from being put so soundly in my place with his rebuttal, I explained my concerns about the ingredients in energy drinks and provided him with an option that I had been sent just days before- Zest Tea.
Zest Tea boasts three things that make it my preferred beverage when it comes to replacing energy drinks: energy, focus and health.
Energy: Zest Tea contains 150mg of caffeine which is 3x regular tea. To put it in perspective, your average cup of coffee contains just under 100mg, so one serving of Zest Tea is equivalent to two strong cups of coffee (which is what I typically consume in the morning).
Focus: In addition to that energy boost, Zest Tea provides 100mg L-Theanine, something my cup of coffee does not. L-theanine is believed to decrease “excitatory” brain chemicals that contribute to stress and anxiety while supporting brain chemicals that encourage a sense of calm. It’s even been shown to lower stress-related blood pressure and heart rate.
Health: The ingredients where what sold me on Zest Tea even before I found out about the energy and focus. It has low to no sugar, is plant-based, gluten and GMO-free, and even fits into a keto diet.
The big test was whether Josh would actually like it or not. He loved it and the supply I had been sent to test disappeared quite quickly. Luckily, they offer free shipping on orders over $40! You can order some right now and get $10 off if you don’t want to wait for the giveaway to end.
