How to Increase Your Energy Without Caffeine


Starting the day with a cup of coffee is a top priority for many people. In fact, according to a survey published by Reuters, 62 percent of over 3,000 participants reportedly drank at least one cup of coffee per day. While it’s certainly a quick fix for drained energy, it’s not exactly the healthiest and safest solution. According to Medical Daily, consuming too much caffeine can increase anxiety, muscle spasms, restlessness and even one’s chance of developing osteoporosis.

Thankfully, there are other ways to boost your energy in the morning – and they won’t wreak havoc on your mental and physical well-being. In fact, they’ll improve your overall health! Here are a few alternative methods to increasing your energy, no caffeine included:

1. Prioritize magnesium
Magnesium indirectly impacts the body, balancing the actions of calcium and muscle contraction, but it also improves energy production. Pumpkins, almonds, cashews and spinach are excellent sources of magnesium, but you may also consider a supplemental approach. Hallelujah Diet Magnesium Complex is a complex of four easily absorbed forms of magnesium that supports overall health and promotes longevity.

“Consume water throughout the day to stay focused.”

2. Drink more water
Without enough water in your system, the body becomes dehydrated which leads to fatigue. It’s especially critical to drink a tall glass of purified water when you wake up to refresh and recharge your body after a long night’s rest. Continue drinking water throughout the day to stay focused and energized.

3. Start making smoothies
Mixing your favorite fruits and vegetables into a delicious smoothie is a simple and satisfying way to consume a multitude of vitamins and minerals at once. Choose foods that naturally boost energy, such as citrus fruits, spinach, pumpkin seeds, apples, kale, bananas and peaches to create your smoothies. Look to our favorite smoothie recipes as inspiration for your next concoction in the kitchen.

4. Switch to BarleyMax!
Instead of reaching for a cup of coffee in the morning, try a serving of BarleyMax! This organic juice concentrate is derived from young barley and alfalfa leaves, harvested at peak nutrition to provide the most powerful, living nutrition possible. Simply mix it with water or fresh juice and receive multiple benefits: increased energy, strengthened immune system, improved circulation and more. It’s jam-packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and trace elements which help you build your healthiest, most energized body.

    Love, love, love my smoothies. Have to have the Magnesium at the end of my day. It just helps so much to relax my joints and muscles….much like yoga. Thanks for this blog. So much needed information to remind us that we don’t need caffeine.

  3. These are fantastic reminders to gain energy and stay hydrated. Smoothies are so awesome especially in the morning when our bodies need the liquid. I made a delicious smoothie on Saturday with fresh peaches I purchased from the farmer’s market that morning. It also included frozen bananas and homemade almond milk that was rich and creamy.

  4. Great information, I do tend to run out of energy by mid afternoon. Barley Max is a supplement that I take in the afternoon to help me boost up my energy.

    I just love the taste of coffee. Is one cup of coffee a day harmful? I usually sip on a cup during the morning from a cup that keeps it really warm for hours. I will start taking more magnesium though, that’s a great tip.

      I am with you. There is NOTHING that tastes like coffee! I have looked and nothing comes close. The bitter taste is amazing. Over the years, there have been many studies that show that a small amount of coffee can have positive benefits on health. If someone has heart arrhythmias or is highly anxious, coffee may be bad. But for others, a cup or two of organic coffee may be good. It all depends.
      It isn’t just the energy that coffee gives that people love, it is the mood boost.
      I have found that the Hallelujah Diet Selenium/Glutathione Promoter gives me more energy. I take it with a little Iodine.

    Magnesium is the relaxation mineral. I take it in the evenings to wind down. I can even feel my mind start to relax. Getting a good night’s rest helps me feel more energy the next day! Occasionally I will wake up in the middle of the night with something on my mind and I feel wide awake. If this happens between 11 and 2 at night, I will get up, go to the kitchen, take another magnesium and go back to bed. It works. Magnesium Complex is one of my top 3 favorite supplements. People love this product.

      There is no longer a Hallelujah Diet Store in Canada. Hallelujah Diet is shipping everything to Canada from North Carolina in the US.
      Judy passed away some time back. I do not know the specifics.
      Hallelujah Diet Call Center is 1-800-915-9355. Hours are M-F 8am-6pm and Sat. 9am-4pm EST.
      I do hope you order some BarleyMax soon. That product is fabulous. I love it so much!! You can order on-line as well.

    I like the suggestions given to increase energy. Smoothies are so delicious. They also provide good hydration, fiber and nutrition. When I begin my day with a smoothie and fresh vegetable juice, I don’t miss coffee. I don’t need coffee for energy. I did not know consuming too much caffeine can increase anxiety, muscle spasms, restlessness and even one’s chance of developing osteoporosis.
    I did not know magnesium improves energy production.
