It’s three o’clock on a Saturday… the regular crowd shuffles in. Billy Joel lyrics aside, how many people experience the 3:00 PM crash on any given day? Despite how many espressos and caffeinated drinks have been enjoyed? Energizing snacks are one way to help lift spirits and overall, help with focus and energy. Today, many people are swapping caffeinated drinks for superfood snacks containing moringa.
In this article, we’ll explore two superfood snacks and how they can help as mid-morning or mid-afternoon boosts.
What is a Superfood Snack?
In this article, we consider a “superfood snack” as any snack that has an abundance of multivitamins, and documented benefits for overall vitality. While pursuing a healthy lifestyle is key for sustained wellness, there are certain foods that offer a powerhouse of fiber, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, and more. Cruciferous vegetables, such as moringa, are a frequently noted superfood, with benefits ranging from heart health to gut health.
Both of our snacks in this article feature moringa, which could be the new caffeine-free lift that your day needs. It’s called “the miracle tree” in many cultures around the world, and for good reason!
Moringa as Caffeine-Free Energy
The caffeine-free health benefits of moringa are well-documented, with additional research on its benefits released each year.
Caffeine affects people differently, since it affects the central nervous system, tends to be addictive, and can disrupt sleep patterns.1 Because moringa is a nutrient-dense superfood, the lift from consuming this plant is different: the whole body is nourished and lifted, rather than a temporary burst of energy.
Many people who add moringa to their routine, either in place of coffee or in addition to it, experience a change to their overall energy. The “afternoon crash” diminishes, replaced by a jitter-free lift for extended energy.
In search of your next moringa-rich snack? Our two snacks below feature a caffeine-free moringa snack, as well as a caffeinated moringa snack.
Superfood Shots & Superfood Bars
We’re partnering with So Good So You, a small business started by plant-based foodies who wanted to bring functional food to consumers. The secret ingredient in both of these snacks? Our organic and pure moringa powder!
Their Energy Shot offers a whole array of benefits, including one billion CFU of probiotics, a good dose of Vitamin C, and moringa for sustained energy. Needing sustained energy? This is a good place to start!
So Good So You offers a colorful variety of nutrient-rich probiotic shots and juice. The 2x Energy Shot offers 190 mg of caffeine, for those who want the nutritional benefits of moringa and the caffeine connection. Both shots are packed with organic juice too, helping you feel sustained energy throughout the day.
The probiotics are an added perk in these shots, offering some love and nutrition to overall gut health, which is a key part of feeling strong and healthy. You can take these So Good So You shots as part of your morning routine, or as an afternoon pick-me-up!
For those in search of a moringa bar that is caffeine-free, we recommend our Kuli Kuli moringa energy bars, available as Black Cherry or Dark Chocolate. In a rush, or need a “salad-on-the-go?” These bars offer half a cup of leafy greens, with no added sugar!
Whether your morning or afternoon snack, or a post-workout bite, these bars can help lift your spirits and overall energy.
