Being a SweatPink Ambassador gives me great opportunities to try new products! One of which is the new Lyft Clean Caffeine Energy Stir Stick
Lyft Energy Stir Sticks are literally stirable caffeine! Zero calories, clean taste, can be added to ANY beverage, no additional additives and are the equivalent of 1 cup of coffee!
I am not one of those naturally hyper people. Well, I guess I kind of am, but because I get up so early for work, I definitely need an extra boost at the end of the day! Some weeks, I can spend upwards of $20 at Starbucks! I love my coffee, but A. it gets expensive and B. it does a number on my tummy some days!
I drink coffee every morning, no fail. However, I really like to drink it again before a workout, but I do so for the caffeine. Caffeine acts as a stimulant for your central nervous system. Effects including increased heart rate and blood pressure – which make you feel more energized and alert, and even make your workout seem easier! It has also been known to enhance athletic performance as a ergogenic aid.
There are some warnings though… too many caffeine is also hazardous. It can lead to psychomotor effects which can make you think you can do more than you can. As a caution, if you ever feel jittery or nervous after drinking too much, or if your heart begins to race, I would cut back on the caffeine and consult your physician. Some people just can’t handle too much of it!
So what’s the recommendation… One cup of coffee is a great “pre workout” booster! And how convenient that Lyft is exactly that, the equivalent of one tall cup!
Additionally, Lyft has some other great add ins, VITAMINS! Included are A, B3, B6, B12 and B5! Compared to the other leading brands of energy boosters, this is definitely worth a try people!!! Check out the comparison chart… http://cdn.editthewebsite.com/documents/files/ccc3c847.pdf

I simply mixed my Lyft Energy Stick with water. I figured why not get the “real deal”. I mixed it in my water glass for the recommended time. I did notice when I looked in the little holes at the bottom that there was still a powdery mix. I ended up stirring for almost a minute. Hey, i wanted to get the “full effect!”. My water turned foggy for a little bit and then cleared up.
It definitely gave the water a sweet flavor (there is Sucralose in the ingredients). I don’t eat much sugar, so my ‘sweet tooth’ is very sensitive, so this may be different for someone else!
In regards to the caffeine fix? I drank this on an early work day. Usually on those days I have a tough time coming home and making up for my ususal #bootycall at 4 am. I drank this little Lyft before I left work for the day. I can say it gave me just the perfect amount of energy to go home and kill it! It was actually nicer than having to drink a cup of coffee pre workout. Plus, again, much cheaper than my usual Americano!
All in all, I will probably use these Lyft Energy Sticks again! And I would recommend them to anyone who enjoys an extra boost!
