Look: if there’s one thing we’re not short of in the modern world, it’s reasons to be really tired.
Our brand new Energy Gummies are packed full of the goodies you need to fight lethargy. They contain Guarana, Ginseng, and Vitamin B – crucial ingredients in the crusade against crashing out:
Vitamin B6 and B12
These two vitamins from the B family are extremely important for the body when it comes to producing mental and physical energy. You should be getting b-vitamins in the food you eat, but if you find you’re still flagging it might be worth considering a top-up.
Vitamin B6 plays an important role in metabolism, making it vital to maintaining healthy skin, muscles and blood. It also contributes to psychological function, meaning people with low levels of B6 can experience a decline in alertness. Studies also show B6 is involved in the chemical breakdown of glycogen, responsible for giving your body the glucose it needs for physical activity.

Vitamin B12, on the other hand, is essential for the production of red blood cells which the body then uses to transport oxygen around the body. Not enough B12 means not enough red blood cells doing their thing, which can cause people to feel tired and weak. Some studies indicate B12 deficiency can also result in an overall cognitive decline, which isn’t as smart as it sounds… trust us.
Fortunately vitamins B6 and B12 are both found in our new Energy Gummies – an easy way to make sure you’re getting your fill.
Guarana is a plant, native to the Amazon basin in Brazil. It’s long been used by Amazonian tribes for its body-boosting properties. And no wonder! Its extract – made by crushing its seeds into a powder – contains naturally-occuring stimulants and anti-oxidising tannins.
When it comes to battling fatigue, Guarana is best championed as a source of caffeine. Yet while three Americanos are likely to do little more than make your leg shake uncontrollably, the right amount of Guarana has been strongly linked with improved cognitive performance.
And again, unlike a morning spent chaining lattes, Guarana will be at work do all sorts of other wonderful things to your general wellbeing. Various studies into the powerful plant have linked it to pain relief, heart health,and improved skin, with some studies even indicating it has anti-diarrhea properties! (You asked.)
While three Americanos are likely to do little more than make your leg shake uncontrollably, the right amount of Guarana has been strongly linked with improved cognitive performance.
The best part is, you don’t have to travel all the way to South America to harvest and crush a handful of seeds. We’ve done the hard work for you by packing just the right amount into our Energy Gummies.
You might be more familiar with Ginseng at the bottom of a steaming mug. In recent years it’s been up there with Darjeeling and Earl Grey when it comes to fancy teapot blends. The plant has, however, been used in China for centuries thanks to its amazing properties as a natural medicine.
While it’s also said to improve your immune system and help with recovery from inflammation, what we’re really interested in is how it can boost your energy levels. Well, the good news is, there’s heaps of evidence that Ginseng can do just that.
Studies have drawn links between the fleshy root and higher energy production in cells, which could help fight fatigue. There are also plenty of results that indicate it can benefit your grey matter – with studies showing improved mental health and social functioning after consistent use.
And it’s not just a couple of studies. A review of over 155 tests suggested that Ginseng doesn’t just help reduce tiredness, but can actually improve physical performance! There’s a reason why Ginseng, one of the oldest medicines in the world, is still popular today. And there’s a reason why we put it in our Energy Gummies.

There’s no substitute for a good night’s sleep and a diet rich in nutrients, but if you’re looking to super-charge your batteries, there are vitamins and natural ingredients that can help. And few will serve you better than the combination in our tasty, twice-daily Energy Gummies.
