Benefits of Energize Healthy Gummies as Snacks
These healthy gummies are a great snack that offers a burst of energy without resorting to unhealthy refined sugars.
This is a healthy low-calorie gummy, nothing like its cousin the UNhealthy gummy bear candies.
The key ingredients in Energize are beta-alanine, low-dose caffeine, and quercetin. Here’s a little bit of info on each:
- Beta-alanine is an amino acid that reduces lactic acid buildup which delays muscle fatigue.
- The caffeine is sourced from green tea making it both gentler and healthier
- Quercetin is an antioxidant found in fruits, vegetables, and grains that helps fight free radical damage in your body.
What do these healthy gummies do for you? Well, because they’re made with Energize they’ll:
- Boost energy and endurance
- Increase muscle power output
- Improve performance
- Delay exercise-induced muscle fatigue by buffering against lactic acid buildup
The ingredients in Energize are scientifically proven and made with plant-based phytonutrients. You won’t get any jittery side effects, artificial colors or flavors, fillers, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives.
Energize is also Informed Sport certified, which is a guarantee that you’re getting only healthy and safe ingredients.
