Pure LYFT Review & Clean Caffeine-tini
I was excited when I learned that I had the opportunity to try out Pure LYFT which are energy stir sticks that contain all natural, clean caffeine. You can make any beverage caffeinated simply by stirring Pure LYFT in!
So what exactly are the ingredients? Pure LYFT contains powder inside the stick that is zero calorie, all natural caffeine that is derived from the green coffee bean extract. They’re tag line is “clean caffeine” as it is has a clean taste with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives and as much caffeine as a tall cup of coffee. Pure LYFT also contains a host of vitamins, as well as stevia extract to add a bit of sweetness.
How does it work? When I received the sample I had planned to go for a run that morning so I swapped out my usual coffee for some Pure LYFT with water. I wanted to stay hydrated but I also wanted to see what kind of burst of energy this gave me, the bonus being that I wouldn’t get dehydrated from it like I would coffee. So I peeled back the label as instructed and stirred it in with a glass of water until it dissolved.
How does it taste? Mixed with water, it really does taste really clean as the advertise, no chemical or artificial flavors are present. There is a hint of the stevia plant in it, which add some sweetness but not in a bad way. I didn’t get jittery from it either like I normally would when I drink coffee prior to a workout and I was able to perform as I normally would have without any unintended side effects (thirst, jitters, hunger pains- yes, I get those from coffee).
While the water and Pure LYFT combo tasted just fine, I thought that stirring the caffeinated stick into pre-workout green smoothie juice would be kind of fun, so I came up with a Clean Caffeine-tini!
