Q: I’m trying not to rely on caffeinated beverages for a boost of energy in the afternoons. Can you suggest an alternative?
A: Consider taking a dose of the medicinal mushroom, CORDYCEPS by Purica® in the afternoon when you are needing a boost. Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for energy and to increase work and sports performance, this supplement can help you feel more energized without the “buzz” associated with too much caffeine. Taking 2 capsules twice a day can improve your focus and energy level as well as help your body adapt to stressful situations. Avoid taking this supplement too close to bedtime as it can interfere with a good night’s rest.
