Don’t be fooled by the fact that it is tea; this stuff packs a punch. Drink it early morning; else you might find yourself up all night. Matcha powder, made from green tea leaves which have caffeine and L-theanine, both have excellent natural energy boosting power. It also contains an amino acid that inhibits the release of theanine and caffeine, thus giving you energy for longer.
You can prepare Matcha as a tea by adding boiling water to 1 spoon of Matcha powder. Mix well and add a dash of honey to taste. Alternatively use the powder and make a latte or add some to your fruit smoothie.
Coconut Water Smoothies
Start with a cup of coconut water in your blender. Add a banana and any other seasonal fresh fruit, berries work well or try some orange for something with a bit more zest. This smoothie is packed with potassium to boost your energy the natural way and maintain healthy cell activity. While the fibre and antioxidants in the fruit help general well-being.
Zesty Cayenne Pepper Water
Add a pinch of cayenne pepper to spring water and finish off with a few slices of lemon, and you have a super drink to keep you hydrated and energised throughout the day. Make a whole big bottle and keep it cool for a refreshing boost when you need one. Try to get in at least 3 or 4 glasses. The lemon helps your body to maintain a healthy pH level as it has an alkaline-forming effect on the body while the cayenne pepper boosts energy levels naturally by supporting healthy cardiovascular function. It also tastes great.
