Dr Oz: Energy Drink Recipe
Dr Oz did a segment on the truth behind Energy Drinks. Skip the high calorie energy drink. Lisa Lynn, weight loss and metabolism expert, joined Dr Oz in this segment to tell you how to boost your energy with drinks made the natural way. Tanya, an audience member, joined Dr Oz and Lisa on the stage to be their guinea pig for the day.
Dr Oz: Yerba Mate Tea
Yerba Mate Tea- This drink comes naturally with caffeine and has natural ingredients to help you boost your mood. Before they had Tanya try the drink, Lisa warned that it was an “acquired taste.” (In other words, it tasted like hot gym socks!) You can purchase Yerba Mate Tea for $5 at grocery stores. Lisa also commented that because the tea was not packaged in a plastic bottle, you are also helping the environment.
Dr Oz: Glutamine Energy Drink Recipe
Glutamine— This ingredient helps boost brainpower as well as your energy level. Glutamine also helps spike up your metabolic rate. You can purchase glutamine for $10 at health food stores.
Prepare a quick and easy glutamine drink:
½ C cold water
2 scoops of chocolate whey protein powder
1 tsp granulated coffee
5 ice cubes
500 mg glutamine
Mix it up in a blender. Dr Oz had Tanya try the drink. She stated that it was good. (I watched her expression carefully, and yup, I believe she really enjoyed it!)
Dr Oz: Sweet Spritz Energy Drink Recipe
Sweet Spritz— Lisa called this drink “Miraculous Water”, stating that water was one of the best hydrators and when you were well hydrated, your energy level was up.
Sweet Spritz Drink:
8 C of water
2 lemons (cut up)
Place into the fridge overnight.
Dr Oz stated he was skeptical in the beginning because it was just water, but when he tried it, he liked it. (Stick in some sugar and I’d like it—but then that would be lemonade, now wouldn’t it?)
Dr Oz asked Tanya which drink she enjoyed the best and she picked the chocolate drink. (Surprise, surprise…)
