When I was a kid, there were several things my parents never bought from the store. This included applesauce, canned peaches, and above all: jam.
My favorite was my mom’s homemade raspberry jam. I have fond memories of going out in the fields to pick raspberries and coming home to wash them and blend them into jam. After all that work, the taste of raspberry was (and still is) one of the sweetest in the world.
If you love raspberry as much as I do and you want a natural energy source to help you get through the day, then Teacher Power’s new Original Raspberry energy drink is for you!
Here are some of the benefits of Original Raspberry’s natural ingredients, its caffeine source, and how it compares to leading energy drinks.
Original Raspberry’s Ingredients
Original Raspberry is full of natural ingredients with a multitude of health benefits! With only 10 calories a scoop and natural flavoring, it provides healthy energy to power through your day. Here is the product information for a few of Original Raspberry’s superior ingredients:
Guarana Extract comes from the fruit of a Brazilian plant. Scientific studies have shown that guarana extract contains antioxidants (with the associated benefits). It reduces fatigue. Although more research is needed, there is evidence that guarana can support weight loss, heart health, and more!
Yerba Mate Extract
Yerba mate has several health benefits and is traditionally drank in South America as tea.
Studies show that Yerba Mate helps improve focus and athletic performance (due to its caffeine content). It may also help prevent cancer and much more!
Medium Chained Triglyceride Oils (MCT oil)
MCT oil is a common supplement for athletes, but it can benefit anyone: athlete or not. MCT oil can help with weight loss by increasing feelings of fullness. It also has antibacterial properties.
Natural sources of caffeine include coffee beans, cocoa, and tea. Original Raspberry’s caffeine comes from green coffee beans which have more caffeine per serving than caffeine from green tea.
What separates green coffee beans from regular coffee beans? Green coffee beans are unroasted. Roasting coffee beans reduces the amount of chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid has many health benefits, including its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. As studies progress, researchers have also found potential benefits from chlorogenic acid in aiding the prevention or treatment of disorders like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, cancer, and others.
Original Raspberry Compared to Leading Energy Drinks
Original Raspberry Teacher Power Energy Drink packs a great taste with significantly less sugar than other leading energy drinks.
Take a second look at our nutrition label to confirm what your eyes are telling you. That’s right, Original Raspberry contains no sugar!
In contrast, the original Monster Energy drink has 27g of sugar per 8 fl oz. Studies show that drinking highly sugared beverages is linked to obesity. Many leading energy drinks may be an okay once and a while option, but they aren’t the best for your long-term health.
Some leading energy drink companies have made an effort to reduce the sugar content in their products. For example, Monster Rehab Lemonade only has 3g of sugar for 8 fl oz. But if you are drinking these often, that 3g per serving adds up quickly, making something with no sugar a superior energy option.
Additionally, if you are looking for something with all-natural ingredients to help make your body feel crisp and clean, you won’t find it in leading energy drinks. Most contain an energy blend of man-made chemicals such as cyanocobalamin, which gives its vitamin B-12 content.
In contrast, Original Raspberry is made up only of natural ingredients and gets its B-12 from methylcobalamin found in fish, eggs, and milk.
