Finding yourself in need of an extra boost of energy to power through workouts or just an afternoon slump? Our CBD Energy Shot is formulated with several B vitamins and a small amount of caffeine to provide energy without jittery side effects.
Benefits of Energy Drinks
Vitamins and botanicals are a more natural way to boost energy and help you stay active instead of relying on bottomless cups of coffee or other energy drinks, which can leave you shaky and feeling worse.
The Mayo Clinic conducted a review of research on the safety and efficacy of energy beverages in 2010. In the review, they determined that although most energy drinks contain both high levels of simple sugars and B vitamins, the B vitamins allow the carbohydrates to be used more effectively for energy. The review found that energy drinks are safe in healthy people, but those with caffeine should be used with caution.
B vitamins from foods — including protein, carbohydrates and fat — are needed daily to provide energy. Supplementing with B vitamins ensures your body has what it needs to produce energy from calories. Because they are water-soluble, your body doesn’t store B vitamins for reserves when you don’t get enough. Without adequate intake of B vitamins, you may feel sluggish and fatigued as your body struggles to keep up with energy demands.
A single 2 ounce serving of our sugar-free Zebra CBD Energy Shot is quick and easy to take and provides you with:
- 200% daily value of Vitamin B3
- 125% daily value of Vitamin B6
- 4,166% daily value of Vitamin B12
Here’s a closer look at the main ingredients in our Energy Shot:
Vitamin B3, also known as niacin, is found in protein sources like meat, poultry and fish, and plant sources like nuts and lentils. It plays a major role in energy metabolism. It also assists with DNA production and repair.
Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine hydrochloride, is found in a variety of foods, including chickpeas, bananas, chicken, turkey, salmon and fortified cereals. B6 is involved in hundreds of enzyme reactions, including metabolism of nutrients for energy. It also plays a role in the production of neurotransmitters and immune system function.
Vitamin B12, also known as cyanocobalamin, is found primarily in animal sources like meat, fish and eggs. Vegans and some vegetarians may not consume adequate amounts of B12 if they avoid these food groups. B12 has many important roles in the body; it plays a critical role in energy production and nerve functioning, along with production of DNA and red blood cells.
Premium CBD Oil
CBD oil has been shown to potentially help support general health in a variety of ways. It can help relieve aches and soreness, support a positive mood, reduce stress and enhance sleep. Our highly effective CBD oil is gently extracted from organically grown hemp to preserve maximum purity and benefits.
If you’re looking for a more natural way to increase your energy level, Zebra CBD Energy Shot is a convenient option for getting the B vitamins you need along with the all the benefits of premium CBD oil.
