Pure LYFT Energy Stir Sticks

I received a great opportunity to try out Pure LYFT Energy Stir Sticks.  What are they?  Basically they are a natural way to get a little caffeine boost through your day.
The main reason I was interested in testing these out, they are ZERO calorie!  You can stir them into any drink you'd like.  However, for me because I like the ZERO calorie factor, I didn't want to add them to anything other than water.

I tested these out in a different way.  As you know I am a wedding planner, and when I decorate for a wedding it's an all day event.  From 6am in the morning until close to midnight, I have to be on the go almost non-stop, and energy is something I need!

When I set up a wedding, I do all the hard work and lifting along with the crew.  It's an awesome workout!  The first early morning hour is spent lifting 10-100 pound items and carrying them into a building.  It's a lot of walking, and a lot of lifting.

It's one thing to set everything up in the morning, its another after my body is beat up, sore and exhausted to get the energy needed to go back later in the night and take everything down.  Yes, because I am a same day set up company, I work my butt of for 3-6 hours in the morning lifting and running around.  Only to return a few hours later to spend 1-1/2 hours taking everything down and carrying it back out to pack up.

On average I walk between 6-10 miles just in one day alone working a wedding!  That is not just walking, half of those miles there is something in my arms being carried that weighs 10-100 pounds.

So yes, in the evenings when I go back to take a wedding down, I'm exhausted.  One day I was sitting putting my feet up relaxing during my in between hours.  When I got the mail and discovered my Pure LYFT Energy Stir Sticks had arrived.
When I looked at the clock and realized I had to be back to drop everything in an hour, I looked at those sticks and figured what better time than now to give them a try and see if they really worked.

So I filled a 8oz glass of water.  Then peeled the label off and put the stick into the glass and stirred.  The instructions were stir for 10-20 seconds.
The picture below, is what it looks like after it has been stirred into it.  Yes, it's still crystal clear water!



There is a slight taste to it, it's not a bad taste.  It is kind of a clean taste, almost like a hint of citrus, but not quite.  Probably if you mixed it into another flavored drink you may not notice it at all.  But being in water, I did notice a little taste, but it was still enjoyable enough!

So next was the test to see if it worked.  I drank it about 30 minutes before I left to go drop the wedding.  I can honestly say, yes I did notice the extra caffeine energy boost!  It wasn't a crazy amount of energy, I wasn't jittery.  But I could tell I was a bit more awake and alert.
It got me though the evening and a few hours later when I was exhausted and ready for bed.  My only worry was it would not have worn off and keep me up.
But it didn't, I was so exhausted I fell right to sleep that night.

Would I try it again?  Of course, which is why I decided to use the next stick the morning before the wedding I set up yesterday.  I figured what better way than a zero calorie natural caffeine glass of water to get my day going!

Do I recommend this product?  Yes, I did not notice any side effects.  They say it is the equivalent of a tall coffee.  Which is just enough, but not too much in my opinion!  Plus, I love that you can mix it into any drink.  They are small, you could fit them into your purse or bag and take them with you.
If you are someone who works out after work, or an evening runner.  This would be a great natural supplement to try!  Give yourself that extra energy boost after a long day, so you can give your workout your all!
