Item of the Day: Energems

I’m not a fan of energy drinks. I feel like the taste is similar to drinking a bottle of Draino. That is an exaggeration, because I am one to exaggerate. But, energy drinks freak me out, and I know a lot of people feel the same way. We do all need caffeine though, don’t we? Some people refuse to do anything until they’ve had their first cup of coffee. Some prefer tea. Some prefer Red Bull. And some prefer 5 Hour Energy. WHY. That stuff is just bananas.

Enter Energems.

Energems supplements are bite-sized, hard-coated gems made with real milk chocolate. They contain caffeine, B-vitamins and a unique energy blend. Energems are made with real milk chocolate, are only 15 calories each, and are available in three flavors: Chocolate Charge, Mint Fusion, and Peanut Butter Blast.

They come in small boxes that contain nine gems each. If you were to eat an entire box, you’d be ingesting 135 calories and the same amount of caffeine found in three energy drinks. Unlike energy drinks though, Energems contain L-theanine, a natural supplement which improves with memory, focus and concentration as well as counteracts the jitters associated with caffeine. Many energy drinks and shots contain Phenylalanine, a major ingredient in Aspartame. Energems do not.

Energems give me the late afternoon boost I need to finish my workday and then push through my evening workout. And they’re just a yummy snack.

As with anything else, consume in moderation.
