Who hasn’t woken up in the morning feeling woozy after giving it your all the day before? And who doesn’t love a cup of coffee in the morning? All of us have found ourselves desperate for the kind of quick fix buzz you get from coffee to get us ready for the day. But who hasn’t found themselves getting all jittery after having too much, burning out far more quickly than we’d hoped. We all lead busy lives, so we’ve all been there.
But I’ve found that one simple addition to my daily routine has changed everything: the coffee pods made by Peaked. It combines my morning cup of coffee with my daily dose of vitamins—I know I’m not the only one who sometimes forgets to take them—to help me to think sharp, keep calm, and feel great.
Peaked coffee cuts out the middle man in my daily routine. Instead of waking up and trying to remember to take my vitamin pills after waking and dressing the kids, feeding the dog, and taking five minutes of me-time to drink a cup of coffee, I wake up, put in a Peaked coffee pod, and go.
I know I’m not alone in this because, astonishingly, up to 60% of people are vitamin deficient. In an office block of 500, that means 350 people spend their days feeling tired, lethargic, unmotivated, unfocussed, and lacking energy. That’s no way to live.
The simple solution to feeling low-energy is to take a daily multivitamin pill. Lots of people do that. It’s a smart move. But many busy people also find there’s a big obstacle: they simply forget to take their daily dose. The intention is there, but not the execution.
That’s why I’ve switched from my normal cup of filter coffee to Peaked. It means my cup of coffee combines all the health components that help me keep high energy and high impact—all those vitamins and aminos I’d usually get from a multivitamin pill—including vitamin C, B1, B6, B9, B12, magnesium—with the great taste of a morning cup of joe.
It’s a smarter move. This way, I’m in control of my destiny, reach what I’d call my peak performance on my own terms.
Plus, the pods are compatible with my Keurig machine, and I get them delivered straight to the house or the office. It’s hassle free.
But there’s a secret ingredient that takes Peaked to a whole other level, the lesser known ingredient 5-HTP, a naturally occurring amino substance. You can’t get it in food and will stick around even after adding hot water, promoting serotonin production, which does the vital job of supporting memory and cognitive functioning. That stuff is vital for me to keep on task in the office, keeping my ideas as fresh as the coffee itself, and it helps my oldest to focus in class, too.
5-HTP also helps to improve my mood. In this sense, it’s totally unlike an ordinary cup of coffee. With my ordinary cup of filter coffee, I have to strike a fine balance between feeling awake and keeping the jitters at bay. Sometimes, I get real crabby after having one cup too many. But because 5-HTP directly converts into serotonin in the brain, it helps me keep calm with the pressure’s on.
You hear a lot about supplements like this these days, and a first I was a little wary about the safety of the ingredients. Nootropic amino boosters like 5-HTP are considered safe as long as you stay with in the recommended guidelines for use. I try not to drink more than three cups a day. Playing it safe helps me get my daily dose of vitamins while feeling great.
In short, Peaked has helped me reach peak performance inside and out after only a few months of using it. I can’t recommend it enough, and I won’t be going dancing the filter coffee shake any time soon!
