Recommend this page to Google

Do you want a natural energy solution to building better energy reserves? Do you drink more and more coffee and energy drinks each day and still feel drained? Americans consumed $3.5 Billion dollars in energy drinks in 2005 and it does not look like we are slowing down.

We used to get our energy with the food we consumed and an occasional cup of coffee or tea. Along with that, just forty to fifty years ago our soils were not depleted. Our farmland's topsoil contained all the trace minerals needed by our cells to keep our body functioning properly. Now, with technology, companies are producing 'instant energy gratification' in the form of quick acting energy drinks and high powered espresso
drinks.

There seems to be a Starbucks on every corner and multitudes of energy drink options in every convenience store. Many Americans are getting through their day by guzzling several energy drinks or iced lattes.

Want to be able to increase your activity? Or, have enough energy after a day of work to go work out? Do you want improved energy, have more focus and boost your immune system?

Here are several natural ingredients that will rebuild your energy levels allowing you to cut back on those energy drinks and coffee.

Guarana
From seeds of an Amazon vine plant. Guarana is a tonic very similar to caffeine and boosts the adrenal glands and stimulates cerebral functions. It provides energy and
alertness. It has a very similar chemical structure to that of caffeine, but releases its energy more slowly into our system making it a little better for your system than regular caffeine.

Maca

Yohimbe
Yohimbe. The benefits of yohimbe are a subject of much controversy. Yohimbe is used to help build muscle, improve sexual function, reduce anxiety, elevate mood, and prevent heart attacks. Because it stimulates the central nervous system, it has been used to treat narcolepsy and for weight loss. It is a great metabolism booster. Yohimbe increases fatty acid mobilization, decreasing fat synthesis, which means it not only aids in weight loss, but actual fat reduction. Yohimbe is popular with bodybuilders. By stimulating the production of testosterone, it can help build muscle mass. Be careful with Yohimbe, as this herb will naturally get your heart racing fast.
