As a busy mom who is so often lacking in the sleep department, I jumped at the opportunity to review this product. These Pure LYFT Clean Caffeine Energy Stir Sticks are the perfect option for those looking for a boost without the overpowering taste of energy drinks or coffee (don’t get me wrong I love my coffee, but sometimes I just want an ice cold glass of something refreshing).
“LYFT Energy Stir Sticks are a cool, new way to get all natural caffeine and stir energy into any beverage you’re drinking. The energy is derived from all natural green coffee bean extract and has vitamins A and B complex. With 0 calories and a clean taste, it’s a perfect pre-workout boost, gets you over that 3pm slump, and is great during happy hour or to keep your energy up while you’re painting the town red!
It’s also the perfect alternative to sugary energy drinks and shots. And if you’re ditching soda, LYFT gets the caffeine (equal to one tall coffee) you miss without the chemicals and calories. You can easily stash it in your gym bag or even a small purse, making it an easy, lightweight, on-the-go option for energy.
How to: Simply peel down the label completely off the whole stick and remove it. Stir the stick into any beverage for approximately 20 seconds. Toss the stick or keep it in your glass.”
PERSONAL REVIEW (Please Note: This review is based on my personal experiences with this product. I was not paid compensation for this review, but as the owner of this blog, I was provided with the opportunity to review this product for free.)
I tried my first stick after a long week of unpacking and dealing with complete and udder exhaustion. There wasn’t a day that had gone by in that week where I didn’t feel ready for a post-work nap. Fitting in my evening workouts had started to become a struggle, by the time I was free to workout I was too wiped out to even consider it.
That’s when the light bulb went off in my head! Wait a minute, don’t you have those caffeine sticks to test out? Why, yes, yes I did! So I poured myself a nice glass of ice cold water and stirred away. No shaking, no absurd mixing, just peel and stir! It was easier than opening a can of soda.
I definitely had my reservations before that first sip. I braced myself because I expected a bitter or unpleasant taste. Relief and satisfaction set in when I didn’t taste a thing. It was no worse than sipping on the ice water than my body so desperately craved. Before I knew it the little boost of energy kicked in.
I didn’t feel jittery (a problem I have with energy drinks) and my HR was no faster than normal (yeah, I wore my HR monitor while I reviewed this product). I was energized and ready to chase my 2 year old around our new yard. I fully enjoyed the stable boost it gave me and was pleased when it didn’t keep me up into the wee hours of the night.
I just recently used my second stick and paired it with lemonade. Again, it gave me the perfectly balanced boost to get me over the early evening slump. I highly recommend this product and wish they would have sent me more! I may even consider dropping some cash on these babies!
