AWAKE - Almond Butter Oats & Berries (Box of 12 bars)
This ViBE energy bar is infused with ingredients to help you be your best you…caffeine for its proven effects, along with natural ingredients shown to be high in antioxidants, improve brain health, aid in weight loss, lower blood sugar and cholesterol, and even work synergistically with caffeine for optimal cognitive function without the jitters or crash! Get up, get out, get ViBEin’.
Coffee fruit extract is, well, super cool, containing many of the beneficial compounds of the coffee bean that are not found in a cup of coffee (plus the caffeine). It has been proven in multiple studies to significantly increase the levels of BDNF, or brain-derived neurotropic factor. Neurotropic means the formation of new neurons, or brain cells. That’s right, we are constantly making new brain cells, and BDNF is a huge promoter of this growth…and coffee fruit is a huge promoter of BDNF. Evidence points to reduction in risks of Alzheimer’s and depression with increased levels of BDNF. Make BDNF your new BFF and get ViBEin’ together.
Guarana seed is not only a good source of caffeine, but is also high in antioxidants (oxidants = free radicals = bad vibes), has been shown to increase cardiovascular health, promote weight loss both alone and in conjunction with exercise, and in animal models has suggested cancer-fighting properties.
Yerba Mate, another source of caffeine, helps burn body fat, may lower blood sugar, cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and has anti-inflammatory properties.
L-theanine is an amino acid with a special ViBE. On its own it is shown to aid in relaxation. However, when used synergistically with caffeine it has been shown in studies to increase memory formation and decrease reaction time, improve cognition (especially when carrying out demanding tasks), increase alertness and aid in multitasking… a ViBE for every occasion. Get your caffeine/L-theanine tag team right here and go blast through your day.
Additional benefits of this bar are that by consuming your caffeine as a food rather than a drink, the absorption and release is steadier and longer lasting, meaning less jitters and less crash. Additionally, this bar packs a solid dose of fiber (over one-third of your daily recommended amount), protein and healthy fats, while being low in carbs, sugar and calories.
